Future-Proofing for Years to Come
| By Accutronics Ltd.
The importance of fitting the right type of battery in certain devices is something we can’t stress enough, no matter how often we bring it up. The variety of batteries available can sometimes make it very challenging for a design engineer to choose the best option. In fact, the creativity of some battery solutions has impressed even us, here at Accutronics. For example, last year a team from the Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineering Fair created the world’s first battery made entirely of Brussels sprouts.

Safety in Medical Electrical Equipment Starts with the Power Input
| By SCHURTER
Electrical equipment used in medical technology must not place patients or medical staff in danger. This, in turn, requires that designing safe equipment starts at the point where the power is supplied. Power connectors and power entry modules with or without a power-line filter must fulfill the requirements of the base standard for medical electrical equipment, IEC/UL 60601-1.

Leakage Currents in Fault-Current Protected Environments
| By SCHURTER
To provide for improved protection of operating personnel, residual current operated circuit breakers are seeing increased use in electrical installations. These, however, often trip unnecessarily due to leakage currents caused by electrical systems. The results are machine downtime and costs that can otherwise be prevented with design consideration to high leakage currents and targeted countermeasures.

Ceramic: A High-Performance Material with Enormous Potential for Design Appeal
| By SCHURTER
Ceramic components are used increasingly in the design of equipment and machines. These components often go unnoticed, working somewhere in the background. While understated, ceramic is not only extremely rugged but also visually attractive. It stands out as the elite choice, when it comes to demand for design appeal. One example of such a component is a pushbutton ceramic switch made by Swiss company SCHURTER.
