Optimizing an Electromechanical Device with Multidimensional Analysis Software

Modern CAE software allows engineers to investigate a multitude of design variations that could not possibly be considered using conventional physical prototypes. In this paper we will first illustrate parametric methods for automatically creating virtual prototypes of electromechanical actuators (in our case simple electromagnetic solenoids) using the AMPERES and MAGNETO programs from INTEGRATED Engineering Software. We will then use a specific case study to show how the Tecplot Chorus program can assist in determining optimal design choices.

Reliability Testing of GORE® Protective Vents in LED Luminaires

Outdoor lighting systems are designed with sealed housings to protect against environmental contaminants. Atmospheric conditions such as temperature shifts and relative humidity present challenges to the reliability of outdoor luminaires. Changes in ambient temperatures can lead to significant pressure differentials. Over time, pressure on the enclosure seals can cause them to fail and allow contamination and/or water to breach the enclosure. This shortens the life of the luminaire by damaging the wiring, leads and other electronics of the power supply driver and the LEDs. The moisture also reduces light efficiency and can cause condensation to form on the lenses and reflectors.
