EPDT's July 2018 issue cover

This month’s issue – both in print and online – contains features on enclosure technologies and mil/aero applications. Our cover story explains how companies can minimise additional testing when commercialising products for the military market.

Throughout our Enclosures focus, we consider the merits of selecting an enclosure early in the design process (p10); we explore the options for customising standard enclosures (p15); and we discuss how the MicroTCA open standard COTS platform provides a compelling embedded system solution for demanding applications (p21).

In our Military & aerospace section, we look at how the latest regulators can help designers of military power supplies meet new performance goals (p6); we examine the use of VR in the aerospace manufacturing sector design process (p12); we review how a new radiation-hardened quad power supply sequencer can be used to enable fault proof sequencing of complex multi-rail power systems for spacecraft (p18); and lastly, we explain how technological advances are influencing the design of batteries in military devices (p27).

We also include a case study on how an electronics housing manufacturer uses a production planning and control system at the heart of its complex manufacturing operations (p28). For T&M, we review investment in the test & measurement sector (p31), as well as include a round-up of NIWeek (p33). And last – but not least! – Mark Gradwell’s STEM column discusses diversity in UK engineering (p38).

As always, we hope you enjoy the issue – and are just an email away!
