Energy management; Ohmite Manufacturing, a provider of thermal solutions and resistors for high current, high voltage, and high-energy applications, adds a new non-inductive option to their Maxi-Mox series of thick-film axial terminal resistors. This alternative to the standard configuration is ideal for high frequency applications and controls.

These applications include high voltage power supplies, power distribution, medical instrumentation, and avionics in addition to other industrial applications that require high power for high voltage switching and high voltage current limiting. To provide the flexibility to meet the needs of these projects, Maxi-Mox offers a resistance range of 250 ohms to 1 Teraohm.

Other features of Ohmite’s series include: a voltage rating of up to 50 kilovolts, a power rating of up to 12.5 watts, and RoHS compliant construction. Maxi-Mox resistors come standard with a durable epoxy coating, with an optional silicone coating to tolerate extremely high or low temperature environments.

For help deciding which options are right for a specific application, contact Ohmite¹s customer support team. The company has over 80 years of experience working alongside clients to tailor electrical components to the precise needs of any circuit.

How to deploy mobile forms + devices to speed up field service processes & reporting

Overcoming the pain points associated with any process is much simpler and more cost effective than you think. This webinar will detail the benefits of switching to mobile forms for field data collection and reporting.
 
We'll examine real use cases and ROI of integrating mobile forms within a given field service process, including for work orders, inspections, checklists and proposals.
 
A quick AT&T Mobile Forms demo will reveal the feature rich, user-friendly nature of the solution. You'll see why it’s a must-deploy to speed up data collection, eliminate invoicing/data entry lags and auto-generate/deliver insightful reports.
