NKK Switches' HS16 Series
of standard size rotary switches which offers engineers the versatility of
multiple pole configurations.
HS16 Series switches are available in single pole through
six pole configurations. Multiple poles are achieved by stacking decks, these
devices are available in shorting (make before break) or non-shorting (break
before make contacts) models.
With a diameter of 65 mm, these rotary switches have 30
degree indexing. Engineers can choose to use the HS16 series in two through 11
positions depending on the needs of the application.
Rated up to 12A at 125 V ac or 6 A at 250 V ac, the HS16
Series' mechanical life is 15,000 operations minimum and electrical life is
7,500 operations minimum. The operating temperature range is -10 to +70C.
Terminals are solder lug and made of phosphor bronze material. The HS16 series
is cULus Recognized.
Design engineers can specify the HS16 Series rotaries with
knurled or D-flat shafts. Shafts are constructed of brass with nickel plating
and the cases are molded in phenolic resin material. Two different size knobs
constructed of phenolic resin are offered for use with the D-Flat shaft option.
These knobs are black with a white indicator line for setting positions.
Standard hardware provided with all devices includes hex
mounting nuts, a locking ring and a split lockwasher.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
