  • Benefits of Vacuum Insulation Panels - Panasonic Industrial Devices
    February 04, 2015
       Thermal insulation is used to maintain proper temperature control and reduce the transfer of thermal energy between objects and spaces. Maintaining temperature levels without some degree of heat loss is impossible, however, vacuum insulation panels can significantly reduce the effects of thermal transfer.
  • AC Servo Motors Get Faster - And Smarter - Panasonic Industrial Automation
    January 28, 2015
    AC servo systems have long been the workhorses of industrial automation, but it’s time to start thinking of them as thoroughbreds. 
  • Increasing Load Capacity in PhotoMOS® Relays - Panasonic Industrial Devices
    January 21, 2015
    PhotoMOS® Optically-Isolated Relays are quite different from standard electromechanical relays and have a variety of applications including test and measurement equipment, industrial control, and security. PhotoMOS Relays inherently have a limited DC load, however, by changing the output terminal connections, 6-Pin DIP and SOP type PhotoMOS Relays can withstand a higher load capacity.

    If you’ve spent any time looking for the right connector to use in a smart phone or other mobile device, you might believe that all fine-pitch, low-profile connectors are created equal. But they’re not. In spite of similarities in package size and pitch, at least on their datasheets, these connectors differ in subtle ways that can affect their reliability during the assembly process and in use. Here are the key technical factors to consider when looking for a reliable connector for use in mobile devices:
