NKK Switches' G Series
rocker and toggle switches are PCB-mounted and feature NKK's
Sliding Twin Crossbar (STC) contacts for logic-level
switching. Combined with a miniature size and 0.25 gm, these
toggle and rocker switches are well-suited for rugged applications where panel
space is at a premium or where high-density mounting is required.
These devices are process sealed for automated processing
techniques, including flux-cleaning procedures. In addition, the STC contacts
self-clean with every actuation.
Each G Series switch can be specified in a single or double
pole configuration (SPDT or DPDT). Five different circuit combinations are also
available, including momentary and maintained options with up to three actuator
positions each. PC terminal-style mounting can be specified in straight, right
angle or vertical mount for toggle switches, and straight PC or right angle
mount for rocker versions.
Additional options include rocker caps that can be ordered
in standard colors of red, black or white. Custom colors are available upon
Terminal spacing of G Series devices is 2.54 x 2.54 mm,
conforming to standard PCB grid layout. These switches are rated at 0.4VA
maximum @ 28V ac/dc maximum.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
