1000 Watts of Compact, Lightweight, High Reliability Power – CM1000S28 Design and Electrical Function

A vital component of every military electronics system is a power supply. Rugged high-performance power supplies are required in mission critical systems. Our power supply can function effectively in ground mobile, aircraft uninhabited transport, and naval unsheltered environments. In the past few years, customer’s demands of smaller solutions, the need for increased power solutions, and increased reliability have paved the path for tremendous improvements in the military power supply industry; therefore Abbott Technologies has developed the CM1000S28 to meet those needs. This white paper details the design and electrical function of the CM1000S28.

Achieve Better Process Controls with Light Cure Technology

In manufacturing, process controls are used to ensure that products are made to the highest standard possible. When effective procedures are laid out for each step in the manufacturing process, it's much easier to reduce the risk of damage, failure, and loss. Employees are able to understand what to do, when to do it, and how to do it well. Good process controls help a company turn out the best version of its product and have fewer headaches along the way. But some technologies lend themselves to smoother processes than others. Light-curable materials in the manufacturing process actually allow for better process controls than other adhesive options. This white paper shows the benefits of using them, and what those process controls look like.

Lubrication Considerations for Bearings

Bearings must be properly lubricated for optimized performance and long service lives, so choosing the correct lubrication is an integral consideration for engineers. AST Bearings’ tribological team has created this comprehensive whitepaper to best explain these lubrication considerations in rolling element bearings. The paper examines types of bearing lubricants (oil, grease and solid film), bearing lubrication methods, bearing lubrication shelf life, and a detailed table showing common bearing lubricants and properties.
