What Is SMT Assembly?
As today’s electronics designs become smaller and more complex, more engineers are relying on ...
Matric has won awards for maintaining on-time delivery. The award qualifications include:
If you would like more information about how a full-service contract manufacturer can augment the abilities of your company and your equipment in the transportation industry, fill out the form, let us know how we can help, and we will send you more information on what Matric can do for you.
Almost every industry uses instrumentation equipment for precise measurements of variables like temperature, pressure, and time.
Behind these critical instrumentations are fundamental design principles that ensure safe usage and accurate results each time.
Whether it's integrated GPS, weather monitoring software, or lane keep assist, most of us put our lives in the hands of transportation electronics.
These electronics should meet Intrinsically Safe (IS) standards. IS products allow for safe operation in hazardous environments by limiting the amount of electrical and thermal energy available for ignition.
Put simply, intrinsically safe products don't require enough electricity and don't produce enough heat to ignite while in use.
Electronics that meet intrinsically safe standards will prevent:
As the transportation industry advances, the increase in technological integrations means more breakdowns and shutdowns. Some systems even 5 to 10 years old can be rendered obsolete as more modern and advanced technology is adopted.
As integrated components become outdated and break down, remanufacturing is a cost-effective solution for companies that may not have the funding or time for an entire overhaul project.
Remanufacturers find creative ways to bring existing boards back to life.
Aftermarket services, much like remanufacturing, allow ECMs to preserve current equipment while saving on costly redesigns. Aftermarket services include:
Your aftermarket services provider should keep your PCBs clear of dust and grime in order to reduce the risk of fire.
Routine testing and inspection services can help prevent machinery malfunction and full system or line breakdowns.
Skilled technicians are able to service electronic products down to the component level using through-holes or simultaneous multi-threading.
To avoid obsolescence and potential incompatibility risks, aftermarket services providers keep extensive logs of all changes and updates made to your equipment. This ensures pinpoint accuracy when trouble shooting for problems.
