Mouser Launches Harsh Environments Technology Site for Engineers To Quickly Drill Down to Technical Design Resources

(PresseBox) ( Maisach-Gernlinden, )
Mouser Electronics, Inc., a top design engineering resource and global distributor for semiconductors and electronic components, announced to the industry the launch of its new technology site on Mouser.com featuring Harsh Environments. The new site contains technical information that aids design engineers' thought process in developing and designing new solutions that meet the most stringent, rigorous operating conditions.

While electronic components are primarily designed for stable, controlled environments, the real world often dictates extreme conditions. For example, dust, water, and even corrosive atmospheres occasionally factor into the design and present other challenges that push components to the "Nth" degree.

The high temperature of downhole applications is a huge challenge to electronic components. Temperatures upwards of 200˚C are not uncommon and even exceed the melting point of some solders. Driven by our endless quest for natural resources and energy, it's an area that exemplifies continual advancement and remains a key focus for downhole engineers worldwide.

Other areas covered are the IP Code (IEC 60529) and NEMA Type Number (NEMA 250). These ratings designate the various types and degrees of protection afforded to electrical equipment by a housing or enclosure against water, dust, corrosive agents, and more. In addition, the site provides extra resources to help spearhead design development such as in-depth industry articles, white papers and a comprehensive library of technical resources that can be reviewed by topic or supplier. A Featured Products guide and user-friendly graphical interface are designed to speed navigation. Engineers can quickly navigate to products and information based on defined parameters and design requirements.

Kevin Hess, Mouser Vice President of Technical Marketing, adds, "The rationale behind our Technology sites is to educate, help narrow the list of products, and find the right products for their design projects. Applications that fall in the Harsh Environments category, especially downhole, require robust, reliable components capable of withstanding extreme temperatures, intense vibration, water, and more. Our goal is to help transform knowledge into design know-how - all with the simple click of a mouse."

With its broad product line and unsurpassed customer service, Mouser caters to design engineers and buyers by delivering What's Next in advanced technologies. Mouser offers customers 19 global support locations and stocks the world's widest selection of the latest semiconductors and electronic components for the newest design projects. Mouser Electronics' website is updated daily and searches more than 8.9 million products to locate over 3 million orderable part numbers available for easy online purchase. Mouser.com also houses an industry-first interactive catalog, data sheets, supplier-specific reference designs, application notes, technical design information, and engineering tools.
