When operating a diesel engine of a vehicle or marine vessel, there is a chance that uncontrolled acceleration may occur. Uncontrolled acceleration can be highly detrimental to the engine assembly, potentially leading to mechanical failure or accidents. With the use of a component known as an overspeed trip, diesel engines can be safer to operate with the restriction of acceleration, even in the case of a failed diesel engine governor.

Commonly referred to as a jumper cable, jumper wire, or jumper, jump wires are a type of electrical wiring or cabling used for interconnecting separate electrical components. Constructed with connector pins or “end connectors” at the end of each wire, jump wires utilize these parts to facilitate the connection between two points without the need for soldering. Available in a myriad of connector types to suit various electrical connections, jump wires can often be found as solid tip, crocodile clip, banana connector, registered jack, RCA connector, RF connector, and RF jumper cable types. For the best connection between the components of a breadboard, circuit board, equipment, and various other components, jump wires provide diverse solutions to electrical devices with flexibility.

The angle of attack indicator, or AOA, is a tool that provides a pilot with visual indications on generated wing lift during flight at a given airspeed or angle of bank. This is made possible through components that visualize and display safety margins above an aerodynamic stall, also known as the critical angle-of-attack. Affected only by airspeed and an aircraft's angle of bank to stall, the AOA does not change based on the vehicle's center of gravity, density, altitude, temperature, bank angle, or weight. Within this blog, we will discuss the many importances of angle-of-attack indicators for fixed-wing aircraft and why the parts that comprise them are important to maintaining flight safety.

Used for the application of reducing friction between two or more moving surfaces, lubricants such as grease act similarly to oil due to their properties. Although grease is coined as a general term, the actual material itself is composed of a varying range of base oils and additives. Semi-liquid in consistency, greases are typically composed of 80% to 90% base oils while thickening agents and additives are included in tandem to produce the quality and consistency that such lubricants are known for. Within this blog, we will discuss the purpose of greases, what they consist of, and how they are made.

An edge connector is a two-sided electrical connector used to connect two printed circuit boards with terminal edges. In computer hardware, it is very common to have a motherboard connect to an array of daughter boards or cards. The edge connector may also connect to a ribbon cable and then to another edge connector that connects to another circuit board.
