Precision Inc. – LLC Resonant Converters & Plumbing?

LLC Resonant Converters & Plumbing? Comparing electrical systems to plumbing is nothing new. Sure, one flows through closed circuits while the other flows out of faucets, but they are similar in a lot of ways. One of the similarities is the problems that can occur when a switch (or faucet) is closed abruptly. In poorly designed plumbing systems the sudden rise in pressure when a faucet is closed can cause a loud thump and eventually even damage the system. It’s called “water hammer,” and on a very small scale it’sRead More
Telaire / Amphenol T9602 Humidity & Temperature Sensor Available at CDI Telaire, a division of Amphenol Advanced Sensors introduced the T9602 Rugged Humidity and Temperature sensors.
