Relays instruct electrical or electronic devices and machines to activate or deactivate when prompted by a user. Generally, we depend on relays to activate numerous appliances, machinery, and equipment, ranging from motor vehicles to conveyor belts. Time delay relays in particular, have a time delay mechanism built in.

When you are working with an exhaust system or another similar assembly that takes advantage of interconnected parts, it can be quite useful to understand how attachment is being done so that any replacement or repair is conducted properly. In many cases, exhaust systems will either utilize exhaust clamps or welding to keep parts together, and understanding the difference between both methods is important as they serve varying roles and present different pros and cons. As such, we will discuss exhaust clamps and welds in this blog, allowing you to better make a decision based on your application or situation.

A typical aircraft jet engine consists of many different parts, each serving a distinct role that allows for overall operations to be carried out with ease. O-rings are a small, yet important, element of jet engines, coming in the form of ring-shaped, elastomeric mechanical seals that are compressed between components for the means of preventing leaks. O-rings can come in many shapes and types, allowing them to be implemented in systems where they prevent the leaking of oil, water, sewage, and other various fluids. In this blog, we will discuss the application of O-rings for jet engines specifically, allowing you to better understand how they aid in upholding operations.

Compressors are instrumental pieces of equipment used in several industries to increase the pressure of a fluid. This fluid is most commonly a gas, such as oxygen, nitrogen, and methane. These versatile devices come in a variety of designs and can be scaled to meet the needs of numerous applications, both large and small. At the simplest level, compressors are a type of turbomachinery, and much of their functioning will be familiar to those involved with turbines. Further, a solid understanding of the operating principles of a compressor will aid in the comprehension of similar turbomachinery. In this blog, we will focus on the nuances associated with centrifugal compressors, including their design, operating principle, and applications.

Keeping dust out of a reciprocating engine is a critical part of maintaining its functions, as even a tablespoon of dust in an engine can cause internal wear to the extent that a premature overhaul is required. Air contaminants are extremely abrasive to many parts of an engine, such as reciprocating engine cylinder walls and piston ring faces, so it is important to employ the use of a proper filter to prevent extensive damage and costs. Therefore, this blog will delve into the functions and types of various inlet air filters for your aircraft engine.

If you have any experience with electronic device design, you're likely aware of the importance of heat sinks. If not, it is critical to understand where heat comes from at the board level. In an electronic device, electricity doesn't always flow through the various components at a steady rate. Instead, it often meets several elements that produce resistance, and as this occurs, the excess energy is released in the form of heat. Since personal computers and other devices constantly move electricity around, they are capable of generating substantial amounts of heat, which could potentially damage associated components. To prevent this, designers incorporate heat sinks, which are specialized components used to keep the device cool.

An RF signal, or radio frequency signal, is one that is transmitted as a radio wave with a frequency between the range of 20 kHz to 300 GHz. RF signals are the backbone of countless communication applications and some medicinal equipment, and they may also serve various measurement operations as well. Despite their importance, RF signals have the chance of being reflected back from open-ended or unused ports, potentially posing an issue for some applications and processes. To prevent such problems from occurring, RF terminators are used.

Unlike conventional automobiles with combustion engines that have long supported driving operations, electric vehicles take advantage of powerful lithium batteries that supply the energy and power necessary for standard operations. For a lithium battery to optimally supply automobile systems with the correct range of voltage and current, they utilize what is known as a battery management system (BMS). In this blog, we will discuss battery management systems and their functionalities, allowing you to better understand their importance for EVs.

When one is connecting various electrical systems and wires together, it is crucial that optimal organization is upheld for ease of maintenance, the rapid replacement of parts, and increased safety. One of the most widely practiced methods of interconnecting two or more wires is to use a terminal block, that of which is a connector capable of clamping conducting strips for the organization of wiring. As a terminal block can allow for multiple outgoing wires to join together with a singular incoming wire, such components can be highly useful. In this blog, we will discuss the functionality of terminal blocks, their most common types, and their applications for the benefit of your part procural needs.
