Chain drives are assemblies that may be found in a number of systems and settings, and they are designed for the means of transferring mechanical power between spaces. For example, chain drives are often found in bicycles and cars alike, allowing for generated power to be transferred to the wheels so that they spin and move. Despite this common use, chain drive applications spread much further than automobiles, regularly being situated within industrial machinery and more.

Whether you are plugging in a laptop to a wall outlet for charging or are inserting a USB cable into a computer, you may have noticed the commonality of a large, nondescript cylinder that is located close to the connecting end of the cable. While you may not have thought much about the cylinder common to cables, it serves a very important role in connections and transfers. Known as ferrite cores, beads, or chokes, these cylinders are relied on for EMI management across a number of devices. While ferrite cores may play a diverse set of roles based on the application, this blog will be concerned with the operations of ferrite cores when they are specifically found on electronic cables.

As an element used for EMI protection, a ferrite core serves as a lowpass filter to guard a device. In a standard circuit, capacitors will operate as open when frequencies are low, while high frequencies will have them function as shorts. With consideration to Kirchoff’s voltage law, the total voltage of the loop will be equal to the sum of the drop across each component. It is important to know that both capacitors and inductors have a value known as capacitive reactance which is a counterpart to real number resistance. By adding resistance and reactance together as vectors, one will find the impedance value.

In 2020, the global aircraft brake system market was valued at $10.52 billion, and today, it is projected to reach $16.95 billion by 2030. Perhaps, it would have seen a greater increase had it not been for the significant impact COVID-19 has had on the market in the last two years. The COVID-19 pandemic brought about numerous challenges for the aircraft brake system industry, such as logistical challenges, and an unprecedented supply-demand gap, among others. Currently, the industry is playing catch up as it continues to combat the challenges of aircraft brake systems for fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft.

Aircraft are composed of countless components, many of which must be secured with fasteners. For years, the aerospace fastener industry has continually developed new and stronger variations that can increase aircraft performance. As such, there are numerous types of standard fasteners, such as nuts, screws, rivets, bolts, pins, and collars. Since they are subjected to extreme environmental conditions like high pressures and high temperatures, they must be designed to withstand such environments.

While nearly everyone enjoys the safety associated with a properly functioning circuit breaker, many are unaware of this device's critical function in an electrical circuit. First introduced to the commercial market in the 1930s, circuit breakers are not a new technology. In fact, the general functionality and design remain very similar to the early iterations of the 1900s. In this blog, we will discuss the configuration, types, and function of modern circuit breakers and how they play an essential role in keeping homes and businesses safe.

Since the advent of powered flight, various types of aircraft have come about to fulfill particular needs and applications. While there are a wide variety of aircraft types available on the market, almost all can be categorized into one of two groups, those of which are fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. As the two types of aircraft widely differ in their design, method of flight, and general applicational use, it can be highly beneficial to have a basic understanding of each.

Large aircraft are typically equipped with multiple electrical power sources as they necessitate extremely reliable power distribution systems. One type of power source that is often implemented is an AC generator. Most aircraft have two or more main AC generators controlled by aircraft turbine engines, and one backup AC generator. Other power sources implemented in large aircraft include DC systems as well as an aircraft battery to provide emergency power in the case of multiple failures.
