Our company supplied, manufactured, installed and programmed the Temperature Control System inside an electrical box with an integrated HMI screen, PLC and temperature sensors of the Japanese House IDEC Izumi. See below the relevant video from the show “With Virtue & Courage” (Me areti kai tolmi) that was aired on 26/03/2023.


RAFI expands MICON 5 micro-switch series

Alt text

With the MICON 5 S, MICON 5 SL, and MICON 5 SAFETY series, RAFI has launched a new generation of robust, ultra-small tactile switches. The extremely compact micro-switches measure just 5.1 x 6.4 x 3.85 mm. Thanks to their optimized sealing system, they achieve IP67 degree of protection and can therefore be installed on PCBs protected by casting, painting, or nanocoating. The extreme temperature resistance from -40°C to +125°C meets current automotive industry standards. High-quality gold contacts ensure permanent switching reliability. The micro-switches are available for operating forces of 1.5 N to 8 N as well as in the extremely long-life MICON 5 SL version. With an operating life of up to ten million actuation cycles, the SL switches are designed for tough applications, e.g. in joysticks and other control devices subject to high stress. The third option in the range is an enhanced-safety version. With identical dimensions, the MICON 5 SAFETY series incorporates two potential-free, separate NC and NO contacts. Due to the two-channel contact system, these models are ideal for safety-critical applications that meet the functional safety requirements of IEC 61508, DIN EN ISO 13849, IEC 62061, IEC 60601, DIN EN ISO 25119, DIN EN 50128, or ISO 26262. Characteristic of all MICON 5 variants is their distinctive tactile feedback. The model series are available with SMT and in some versions THT. The media-resistant design makes them ideal for automated PCB assembly and sealing. There is also an extensive range of accessories with compatible plungers, keycaps, and illumination solutions for all use cases.

Challenges of EMC Compliance

Alt text

As the number of electronics in regular use at any given time continues to increase, so does the likelihood that interference will occur

Meanwhile, our dependence on electronics and the need for them to function properly only increases as well – hence the necessity of carefully addressing EMC compliance. Challenges of EMC Compliance gives a detailed overview of EMC issues and how to solve them.
