Sorensen SG Series Ensures Reliable Testing for Auto Parts

Posted by Bill Martin on Aug 28, 2017 10:31:27 AM

One of the big challenges when designing and manufacturing auto parts is ensuring that they operate reliably in very hot environments, such as Dubai, where the high temperature can easily reach 40˚C. Of course, they must also operate reliably in very cold environments, such as Siberia, where the thermometer can drop to -40˚C or below. You certainly don't want parts to fail when you're zipping down the road at 200 km/hr. because they can't take the heat (or the cold).

Choose the Right Gauge Wire Size for Your Application

Posted by Bill Martin on Jun 8, 2017 3:26:21 PM

When installing an AMETEK Programmable Power power source, you must properly size the wires you use to connect the AC input power to the power source and the AC or DC output to the load. Selecting the right size gauge wire will ensure that your power source will operate efficiently and reliably.

3 Ways Modern Power Supplies Reduce Test Costs

Posted by Bill Martin on May 24, 2017 10:57:33 AM

Test costs can add considerably to overall manufacturing costs, especially when extensive testing is required. That's why it's important to keep test costs to a minimum. Reduced test costs translate to lower manufacturing costs. Modern power supplies, such as California Instruments' Asterion Series, have several features that can help you reduce test costs:

Electronic Load Selection: Volts, Amps, and Model Numbers

Posted by Bill Martin on May 15, 2017 12:43:05 PM

Often the selection of programmable power supplies is based upon how high a voltage it can produce or how much current it can source. When selecting an electronic load, however, you need to consider not only volts and amps, but power as well. For example, the SLH-500-6-1800 has a maximum input voltage of 500 VDC and a maximum input current of 6 Arms, but that doesn't mean that it can accommodate these voltages and currents under all conditions.
