Wherever electronic devices are used, and networks are created, plug connectors are in use. Connectors and connectors must therefore meet different requirements: Reliability, robustness and durability are relevant prerequisites for high safety and economic effectiveness. What types are there, and what influences must they withstand?
To prevent electronic components from being damaged by electrostatic discharges, targeted ESD protection measures are necessary in the workplace. But which measures are really effective? In this article, you will find everything you need to know about ESD protection in the workplace - from the right clothing and suitable tools to optimal room design.
A soldering station is a special version of a soldering iron. Soldering stations usually consist of three components: a power supply unit, the so-called soldering iron unit and the soldering iron. Before you buy a soldering station, you should think about modes of operation, specific characteristics and the different types, as well as necessary accessories. We have answered the most important questions and made specific recommendations on the subject of soldering stations.
