Determining the connector to incorporate into your design is a matter of evaluating the application needs and the environment in which it will be used.

Start by asking yourself

  • What type of transmission do I need? Are your connection points needed for power, communication, signaling, or a combination?
  • How many contact points are needed?
  • What are the current requirements of the application?
  • Are there space constraints?
  • What is the wire termination method for the contact pins (spring, clamp, or screw)?
  • What are my environmental conditions?

Advances in technology are continually evolving and through our partnership with leading manufacturers like Amphenol we are delighted to pass these new innovations on to you.

Below are some recommended connector ranges to consider for your applications.

How do I protect my electronic devices from moisture?

Certain kinds of electronic devices called “Surface Mount Devices” or SMD’s are mounted on a circuit card by high temperature soldering. The body of the SMD is made from plastic that absorbs moisture from the air. When the case is heated during soldering, the moisture inside turns to steam and may break the device as the steam escapes. Keeping SMD’s dry before soldering means that the devices will not be damaged.

To protect your electronic devices protected from moisture, use moisture barrier bags with desiccant.

HOW TO USE DESICCANTS WITH MOISTURE BARRIER BAGS?

Desiccant is a drying agent that is used to absorb moisture from the air inside moisture barrier bags. Desiccant absorbs moisture vapor (humidity) from the air left inside that barrier bag after it has been sealed. Any moisture that penetrates the bag will also be absorbed. Desiccant remains dry to the touch even when it is fully saturated with moisture vapor.

HOW IS DESICCANT PURCHASED?

Desiccant is sold by the “Unit” or fractional Unit. One unit of desiccant will absorb a specific amount of moisture. A unit weighs about 28 grams or 1 ounce. The pouches of desiccant are placed into metal pails to keep the desiccant dry during shipping and storage.

HOW IS DESICCANT PACKAGED?

Desiccant is packaged in small sealed pouches made from a white plastic called “Tyvek”, or brown “Kraft” paper. Tyvek pouches are very clean and sulfur free. Kraft pouches are economical.

Why a static audit is vital for your production facility?

Static auditing is a process which involves assessing a production facility’s overall electrical performance. The long-term aim of the process is to identify any faults in the system which could affect the electrical current or required performance of the machines they are connected to.

Static auditing is a process which involves assessing a production facility’s overall electrical performance. The long-term aim of the process is to identify any faults in the system which could affect the electrical current or required performance of the machines they are connected to.

It is important that any threats to the performance of a machine are identified as quickly and as early as possible. Any major issues can put a strain on other electrical currents and make the whole mechanism less efficient. An auditor will check the system by looking primarily for static areas (where the electricity is at rest).

Static electricity usually caused when there is an imbalance between non-conductive insulators of electricity, becoming negatively or positively charged. Static control introduces a number of measures to help prevent this. Removing or neutralising static electricity is a common method of static control, as well as ensuring the electrics are well grounded so this acts as buffer.

Static electricity discharge can be highly dangerous in industries dealing with flammable substances. If a small electrical spark occurred here then this has the potential to ignite explosives mixtures.

Seeking professional advice to help you implement static control apparatus prevents the need to get someone in to regularly check the electrical conduction. This can save you money and time in the process, something which any business regardless of its size will appreciate.

Inelco Hunter Ltd can provide a full assessment of your facility and recommend devices to passively safeguard the work space from electrostatic discharge – protecting the instruments, and the employees from a potentially dangerous outcome.
