The systems that we utilize everyday for the transportation of gas, water, and other fluids are often complex networks, requiring components to manage, regulate, and direct the flow of such fluids within a system. The solenoid valve is a component that fulfills this role, acting as an automatically operated valve that benefits a variety of industries, equipment, and applications. As solenoids serve as a major facet of modern mechanics, it is important to understand what they are, as well as their different types.

You are probably more than familiar with USB cables as they are in use throughout the tech world. Less common, but equally effective, is the FireWire. A FireWire is a cable used a method of high-speed communication between two separate computers or between a computer and a peripheral. In technology, a peripheral is an external device that provides input or output for the computer to which it is connected. FireWire is also used in transferring information between digital devices such as audio and video equipment. This blog will provide further information on what FireWire cables are, how they work, where they differ from normal USB cables, and how to decide which cabling device is more effective for you.
