When constructing aircraft, rubber and sealant components are critical for ensuring that no fluids are able to enter or escape assemblies and structures. When sealing the fuel tank or similar structures, seals are implemented at the joints and rivets of the assembly in order to prevent leaking. As such materials are designed to withstand high amounts of heat, they provide ample protection for the aircraft throughout their service lives. Due to the importance that such aircraft sealant components play, understanding their functionality and how to properly install them can be useful for anyone operating or maintaining such assemblies.

A sensor is an electrical device used to detect and respond to a type of signal e.g. optical or electrical. The use of sensors has become the most common option in the measurement of voltage and current methods. This is due to the many advantages sensors have over traditional methods such as smaller size, lower weight, higher safety & accuracy, environmental friendliness, and their non-saturability. Thanks to sensors, it is possible to merge current and voltage measurement devices into a single unit with small and solid dimensions. This blog will focus on a specific type of sensor, the voltage sensor, as well as its types and applications.

DIN rails are an essential tool that only few are familiar with. If you are aware or know about what DINs are, you are likely among the experts working in the manufacturing or industrial sector. To elaborate on what they are, DINS basically stands for Deutsche Institut für Normung, which translates into English as ‘German Institute of Standards. They look like long metal strips that are made for fastening to electrical and industrial items that include but are not limited to terminal blocks, circuit breakers, actuators, power supplies, solenoids and others.

Choosing the right fiber jumpers for your fiber optic network is no simple task. The choice you make can affect a lot of things, like how quickly data is transmitted from point to point. A fiber jumper, also known as a patch cord, is a length of fiber cable that connects end devices or network hardware to a structured cabling system. The cable is terminated with LC, SC, MTRJ, or ST connectors at both ends. They are frequently used in cable television, optical switches, or other telecommunications equipment. Fiber jumpers are considered interconnect-style cabling. Their general characteristics include low insertion loss, high return loss, good repeatability, good interchange, and excellent environmental adaptability. Jumpers come in two configurations: simplex and duplex. The needs of your network will dictate which type you need.
