  • Brazing a steel coupler and a steel wire [IH]
    Induction heating enabled the brazing process to be completed within 30 seconds. The client was using a torch, and induction offers superior repeatability with no open flame and delivering heat only where it's required...

  • Design / Installation Notes: Shortwave Emitters (.pdf)
    losses as is the case with medium wave (open wire, metal sheath).
  • Electrical Specifications: Float Assemblies with SPDT Switches and Temperature Switches (.pdf)
    Each switch wire group, will be separated and marked for easy identification. Assemblies with SPST and SPDT in the same sensor will typically follow standard color code unless customer specifies differently. Use an ohmmeter ONLY to check switch operations. Switch open resistance will be infinite
  • Medical Device Link .
    Offering whip-free characteristics, cabling for medical wire features an open-center working channel with an inside diameter ranging from 0.007 to 0.045 in. and an outside diameter from 0.011 to 0.085 in. The Helical Hollow Strand cable can also be supplied in smaller-diameter versions
  • Sensor Sense: Intelligent inductive sensors
    The actuator sensor interface (AS-Interface) is a simple two-wire network that replaces traditional sensor wiring architectures. Actuator Sensor Interface (AS-i) networks use a special two-conductor yellow cable to carry both power and data to network devices such as sensors, analog inputs
  • Medical Device Link .
    Read Part 1 of this article. Insulated microdiameter wire designs can be manufactured reliably down to sizes of around 0.001 in. (0.026 mm). Most applications currently use diameters within the range of 0.0025 -0.0075 in. (0.064 -0.192 mm). The pressure to reduce these sizes, as with most
  • Computer Power User Article - Uncross Those Wires
    The inside of the Apple Power Mac G5 is as clean and sleek as the outside, thanks in part to great wire management. Passionate PC enthusiasts are a finicky bunch, especially when it comes to their computers. They like things done a certain way, and nothing else will do. Take us, for example
  • Banging out tiny parts
    , and heads, even letters and logos. Cold forming takes wire from a coil and cuts it to precise lengths. Multiple blows by a series of dies and punches then shape the wire into a finished product in one machine cycle. Parts with high levels of precision and complexity are possible. For instance
  • SMAs don't like it hot
    for actuators. One SMA alloy called Flexinol from Dynalloy Inc., Costa Mesa, Calif., is a nickel-titanium wire that shrinks between 2 and 5% of its overall length when heated to an activation temperature of between 70 or 90C, depending on diameter. Contraction force scales with cross-sectional area, which
  • LED s Shine On
    by transients and surges. An LED is essentially a P-N junction diode built to emit light when forward biased. A major cause of electrical opens in an LED is thermomechanical stress on the wire bonds. Another cause of LED failure is electrostatic-discharge (ESD) events or surges induced by nearby lightning
  • Synchronization
    converters: 1) single wire, 2) capacitor coupling to external clock, and 3) direct drive of the SYNC input by an open drain MOSFET.
  • Back To The Future: Is Retro a thing of the past?
    Concept car designers go back to the future with by-wire controls, asymmetry, solar power, and plenty of high-tech gewgaws. I've got nothing against retro as my wardrobe, '97 Camry, and beard readily testify. Still, I'm pleased that this year's concepts are mostly forward-thinking
  • Talk this way
    on version provides incremental data via analog sin/cos signals. Hiperface is an asynchronous protocol that provides both analog and digital signals. BiSS is a bidirectional synchronous protocol that sends data on one wire pair and clock signals on the other. There are a wide range of choices
