Dr. Larry Explains Key Design-In Points for Basic Switch Components
MINNEAPOLIS, September 14, 2009 - Honeywell Sensing and Control (NYSE: HON) has added a new video to its library of Dr. Larry informational videos on its website (www.honeywell.com/sensing ). The new video on MICRO SWITCH(TM) technology demonstrates how basic switches work, and what to look for in a high-quality electromechanical switch.
"Honeywell owns MICRO SWITCH(TM) technology and has been working with our customers who design it into thousands of applications for over 75 years," said Dr. Larry Goldstein, chief technology officer of Honeywell Sensing and Control. "It's important to speak engineer-to-engineer and explain the key aspects of deploying this technology."
MICRO SWITCH(TM) products have provided generations of manufacturers and design engineers superior operating characteristics, long mechanical life, and absolute dependability in closing and opening electrical circuits. The nine-minute video allows engineers worldwide to learn about basic switches, potential applications of the technology, and what to look for when designing basic switches into applications. Viewers may also pose questions to Dr. Larry directly from the site.
About Honeywell's MICRO SWITCH(TM) Technology
Invented in 1932, MICRO SWITCH(TM) technology helped to supercharge the race to miniaturization and high performance in electronics. Prior to its debut, no switching mechanism had its strength, repeatability, reliability, high current capacity, small size, or weight. While modern technology has improved some of the materials used in MICRO SWITCH(TM) devices, most of the initial design has remained unchanged, enabling the advancement and affordability of many of today's modern machines and appliances.
