Wind turbines present some of the most challenging environments for electrical and electronic installations. Often subject to extremely high humidity levels, high temperatures and vibration, these installations require specialised protection measures above and beyond what would normally be needed under less aggressive conditions. This was the case recently,...

A compressed gas spray duster, otherwise known as an ‘airduster’, has a wide variety of uses in many different areas of industry and at home. Airdusters effectively offer a quick solution to remove any airborne contamination from areas of electrical and electronic equipment that are either too fragile to be manually cleaned or too difficult to reach. You might...

This is a question that is often asked throughout the electronics industry and Like any good engineering answer, it depends… on the degree of environmental protection required. The first thing to consider is often the design of any housing within which the PCB will be enclosed. If an assembly is enclosed in a housing which is designed to be the primary...

Electronics for military applications are expected to operate first-time, every time in some of the most hostile and demanding environments. Military programmes are often designed to run over several decades, with hardware likely to be updated several times over the programme's duration. Similarly, most aerospace electronics will be compromised by harsh...
