Standex-Meder Announces Online Magnet
Standex-Meder Electronics now offers an in-depth training module, Magnet Technology and Their Uses, suited for helping design
engineers explore what magnets are, what they do, and how they
are used in electronics design. Magnet usage is increasing in electronic applications because magnets can be used to switch reed
sensors using no power, a significant asset in today's energy-constrained world.
The magnet training module is supplied as part of Digi-Key's PTM
Online ...On Demand product training modules. The presentation
includes an audio narration along with diagrams and graphics that
aid the learning process. Conveniently divided into 37 short segments, the read-at-your-own-pace is perfect for busy design engineers who need to learn more about the many ways magnets are
being used in today's electronics designs.
Engineers can learn about the basics of magnetics and magnetic
properties, temperature effects and magnetic strength and size, and
how the Curie temperature affects switch design. Also covered is
practical information on the types of magnets available with a range
of magnetic fields, accompanied by charts and graphic aids, including information on the most popular magnets used in the electronics industry and their stability at high and low temperatures. Finally,
the training module delves deeply into how to use magnets in today's designs and provides detailed graphics on how magnets are
employed in reed relays and sensors, whose no-power attributes
make them extremely desirable in today's designs.
MagNet for SolidWorks Coming in 2014
Infolytica Corp. has announced that MagNet for SolidWorks, a
new software package, will be officially launched in 2014. SolidWorks
users who need to design and analyze electromagnetic or electromechanical devices can use this new tool directly in their preferred
SolidWorks is a
new product from
embeds an electromagnetic field
simulator as an
add-in to Solidworks 2013 or
later. It uses the
same 3D EM finite
element technology that is in the
company's MagNet 2D/3D simulation software.
The advantage is a device can be simulated and analyzed with Infolytica's electromagnetic solver technology directly in Solidworks'
native solid modeling system without any geometric translation or
model import. Using just one environment for modeling and design
is both convenient and more efficient for the user.
