AFL is launching a High Temperature Universal Compound (HiTUC) that can be used as a filler compound on high-temp compression accessories and pad-to-pad connections. Spartanburg, SC (PRWEB) March 27, 2014 AFL is launching a High Temperature Universal Compound (HiTUC) that can be used as a filler compound on high-temp compression accessories and pad-to-pad connections. Designed to withstand the increased operating temperatures of high temperature/low sag conductors, HiTUC is ideal for dead...

Race Car Drivers Use Sophisticated Wiring Techniques For Satellites In Competions
2013-08-06 08:45:56

ESA Thanks to advanced electrical wiring developed for space, some racing drivers are now steering sleeker and potentially faster cars in competitions here on Earth. Sophisticated wiring techniques developed for ESA satellites are now used in Formula One cars, improving their performance and weight. "We identified a need in the space marketplace, where wiring needs to be robust, flexible, lightweight and able to withstand large forces," said Terry McManus, project manager for...

Wires That Stretch Eight Times Their Original Length Created Using Liquid Metal
2012-12-18 13:56:39

North Carolina State University [ Watch The Video ] Researchers from North Carolina State University have created conductive wires that can be stretched up to eight times their original length while still functioning. The wires can be used for everything from headphones to phone chargers, and hold potential for use in electronic textiles. To make the wires, researchers start with a thin tube made of an extremely elastic polymer and then fill the tube with a liquid metal alloy of...

Chongqing Electric Power Corporation has become the second major utility in the People's Republic of China to install the 3M Aluminum Conductor Composite Reinforced (3M ACCR) to boost transmission capacity on a key line without the need to build larger transmission towers. The utility says it needed extra capacity to meet anticipated heavy power demand for the summer Olympics in Beijing and did not have time to construct new towers. This installation will serve more than a half-million...

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- An experimental mystery -- the origin of the insulating state in a class of materials known as doped Mott insulators -- has been solved by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The solution helps explain the bizarre behavior of doped Mott insulators, such as high-temperature copper-oxide superconductors. In a paper published in the Nov. 2 issue of the journal Physical Review Letters, physics professor Philip Phillips and graduate student Ting-Pong...
