    How Solenoids Help Improve Indoor Air Quality

    February 3, 2021

    Solenoid valves are electronic devices used to control the flow of gases or liquid through a system. The electromagnetic device replaces manual valves and allows users to automate their system. Solenoid valves can be used in indoor condenser systems to control the temperature while cooking. More advanced solenoid valve systems provide reliable airflow while reducing the humidity levels. Solenoids are used to control the indoor air quality in other spaces such as bathroom exhaust fans and specific electronics in designer kitchens. All these applications leverage the ability of solenoid valves to work in a wide range of condenser systems. Temperature … Continue reading How Solenoids Help Improve Indoor Air Quality

    Top 13 Ways Solenoids are Creating the Modern Home

    January 6, 2021

    A solenoid is a mechanical device that converts electric energy into mechanical energy. It consists of a coil, a housing, and a moveable device called an armature or a piston. When the device is switched on, magnetic fields activate the coil enabling it to draw in the armature. When power flows through the coil, it induces a strong flux that pulls the piston. The use of electromagnets allows the device to be switched on and off. Electromagnetic solenoids are ideal for making automatic valves and switches. Solenoids have many modern home applications ranging from washing machines to dryers, stoves, and … Continue reading Top 13 Ways Solenoids are Creating the Modern Home

    Case Study: Wearable Medical Devices

    August 5, 2020

    Wearable Medical Devices – Explaining When to use Printed Circuits Johnson Medtech developed a process to allow surface mount components to be applied to the polyester substrate to create a waterproof circuit, which resulted in an extremely thin and conformable product. When making a medical wearable with a large surface area, printed circuits are the natural choice for three reasons: The ability to print instructional graphics on the surface gives it the impression of it being a finished medical product without extensive coverings. Printed circuits are an additive process, where silver ink is applied to the polyester substrate. The subtractive … Continue reading Case Study: Wearable Medical Devices
