Harsh environments similar to those found in water and wastewater facilities can affect the ability of an electrical enclosure to protect the controls contained within, leading to a multitude of problems.
Installing a fan to ventilate an electrical enclosure may seem to some as simply just another cost to cut.
Identifying possible causes for failure, and the prevention thereof, is critical for systems in aerospace and defence applications, particularly where extreme shock and vibration are prevalent, as well heat, dust, moisture or chemicals.
3D printing has come a long way in a short time, aided in no small measure by the capabilities of UV and EB curing. Here, Mark Macaré reviews the current status in the dynamic 3D printing market.
Modern FPGA-based designs use an increasing amount of intellectual property (IP), both in variety and number of instances.
The avionics industry has become an important factor in the global economy and flying a natural part of modern life.
IET announced it will be launching the update to the Wiring Regulations BS 7671:2008 in January 2015.
Protecting electronics and batteries in hybrid and electric vehicles is an increasing challenge for carmakers. OEMs and suppliers need to find a way to handle the pressure in electronic housings and venting is increasingly important, explains Robert Chamberlain, WL Gore.
Over the years, the IPC have made efforts to fix the disconnect between design and manufacture. This is why the current CID and CID+ programs have an emphasis on DFX.
