As data center operation costs continue to skyrocket, data center managers have to ask the hard questions. Namely, how can stakeholders in this ever-growing industry maximize data center efficiency? Like any other massive operation, a data center is the sum of its parts – and the smallest parts are critical for an efficient operation. Are […]
You need a connector with zero room for error. Enter press-fit technology, which is becoming increasingly popular in the connector industry. But what is press-fit technology, and how can it revolutionize your understanding of connectors?
Industries like aerospace, medicine, and tech all have one thing in common: efficiency is the name of the game. Manufacturers are in the midst of an ongoing race to make the fastest, smallest, and most lightweight innovations – while also producing a completely reliable product again and again. Of course, highly efficient end products require […]
Although we might dream of traveling through space as quickly and conveniently as the Jetsons, space travel is currently expensive and restrictive, requiring fastidious work and highly efficient tools. Whether on earth or in space, maximizing efficiency in electrical systems starts at the component level. If each component is optimized for efficiency, the system ratings […]
Due to environmental concerns, advances in technology, and reduced costs, the demand for electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) is surging. In fact, according to Allied Market Research, the global EV battery market is projected to reach $84 billion by 2025. Not only can EVs help improve fuel economy and lower fuel costs, but also […]
Is it best to install hardwiring or use plug-and-play modular connectors? Whether they’re designing industrial machinery or consumer devices, many engineers confront this choice, and they’re increasingly choosing to switch from point-to-point wiring to connector-based cable assemblies. Not only has this strategy been found to lower costs and increase flexibility, but also it can boost […]
Electronics and water are not naturally compatible. The combination can produce inconvenient, frustrating, or even fatal consequences. Fortunately, engineers have devised ways of protecting electronics from liquids, moisture, and humidity to ensure their functionality and safety. For example, sealed connectors can safeguard connectivity solutions in environments that involve dripping or splashing water, high-pressure water jets, […]
