Helps design engineers understand how to use magnets in electronics applications
Cincinnati, OH – Jauary 13, 2014 — Standex Electronics, a leading manufacturer of precise, reliable, and long-lasting sensors and magnetic components worldwide, now offers an in-depth training module, Magnet Technology and their Uses, ideal for helping design engineers explore what magnets are, what they do, and how they are used in electronics design. Magnet usage is increasing in electronic applications because magnets can be used to switch reed sensors using no power, a significant asset in today’s energy-constrained world.
The magnet training module is supplied as part of Digi-Key’s PTM Online … On Demand® product training modules. The easy to use presentation includes an audio narration along with simple diagrams and graphics that aid the learning process. Conveniently divided into 37 short segments, the read-at-your-own-pace is perfect for busy design engineers who need to learn more about the many ways magnets are being used in today’s electronics designs.
Engineers can learn about the basics of magnetics and magnetic properties, temperature effects and magnetic strength and size, and how the Curie temperature affects switch design. Also covered is practical information on the types of magnets available with a range of magnetic fields, accompanied by charts and graphic aids, including information on the most popular magnets used in the electronics industry and their stability at high and low temperatures. Finally, the training module delves deeply into how to use magnets in today’s designs and provides detailed graphics on how magnets are employed in reed relays and sensors, whose no-power attributes make them extremely desirable in today’s designs.
