Lithium-Ion or Li-ion batteries have become a mainstay in the electronics world since their introduction in 1991. Due to their rechargeable, lightweight, and reliable nature, lithium-ion batteries are chosen to meet the power requirements of numerous devices, ranging from mobile phones to military and aerospace equipment, and more. Given their ubiquity in several industries, it is important for customers to understand the basic operating principles that govern lithium-ion batteries in case they decide to implement these devices in their work. In this blog, we will discuss all the nuances relating to lithium-ion batteries, including their chemical and physical characteristics, uses, and safety profiles.

HVAC systems, or Heat, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning systems, are a regular element of many modern buildings, allowing for a space to achieve optimal comfort as one can use the system to govern air quality, temperature, air flow, and relative humidity. While many are familiar with the temperature controls that many HVAC systems provide, features may go beyond temperature control with the ability to manage relative humidity. While humidity settings can bring more comfort, they can also protect a space from issues like mold growth and respiratory issues. Because of these various capabilities that modern HVAC systems offer, as well as how they can affect health and safety, it can be very useful to have a basic understanding of how they are designed and implemented within buildings.

After healthcare, manufacturing is ranked as the second most dangerous work environment, with countless risks of injury and death. In an attempt to lessen the hazards in the industry, limit switches gained popularity for safety regulation. Also known as travel switches, limit switches are electromechanical devices designed to cut power to stop the motor and activate the brake that halts the machinery when a specified limit is exceeded through physical force. These switches typically comprise an actuator mechanically linked to a set of contacts used to detect the measured objects, and they can be found in a vast array of devices. To further explore the functions and benefits of limit switches, this blog will examine their different types and how they work.

Aircraft that are able to conduct vertical take-off and landing are known as VTOLs, and they often come in the form of drones, helicopters, tiltrotor aircraft, and more. VTOL technology presents a major benefit to urban operations, allowing aircraft to fly in dense areas where a conventional fixed-wing model would be unsafe. Additionally, many proposed VTOLs for urban areas are to be electrically powered, making them eVTOL vehicles. In this blog, we will discuss eVTOLs and how they have the potential to radically change aviation.

In our modern world, we are often dependent on countless electronics that support our business endeavors, communication, personal lives, and much more. Despite our ability to effectively harness electricity for power, it remains a volatile force that can easily lead to damage and danger if not properly managed and controlled. While there are a number of ways in which we can better manage electricity for safety, one of the most simplistic and common solutions is to use grounding wires. As electrical protection is one of the most important elements of safety for any building, aircraft, automobile, or facility, it is highly beneficial to have a general understanding of grounding wires and how they benefit an electrical system.
