Considerations With ESD Testing Equipment

When testing for ESD or electrostatic discharge, specific types of tests will need to be completed based on the end use of the device or component. The electrostatic discharge is a strong instant electric current that moves between two objects. These objects have a different electrical potential to allow the current to

The Importance Of Gage Pressure Measurement

There are different options for measuring pressure. Absolute pressure is going to be a measurement that is referenced against a perfect vacuum. Gage pressure is measured or referenced against the ambient air pressure. In other words, the gage pressure measurement will be the absolute pressure (referenced against a vacuum), minus the surrounding

The Industrial Electric Motor – Small, Simple Yet Powerful

Electrical motors are everywhere these days and have been around since the mid 19th Century. But did you know these motors work on a simple principle of magnetism created by electricity, or electromagnetism? Let’s look back at how the industrial electric motor got its start and into the roots of the basic

Electrocueticals – A Peek into the Not So Distant Future of Medicine

You have probably heard (and perhaps experienced) electric muscle stimulation therapy. By connecting an electric current to the skin (through electrodes) muscles can be directly stimulated without receiving a signal from the brain. This technique is often used in physical therapy and can provide relief from muscle problems and exercise muscles in
