The design, development and delivery of affordable magnetic components is a complex process. The design development process begins once performance requirements are specified. Upon design approval, the procurement of materials for a prototype build is initiated. During this stage, specifications are not final and options remain open for cost-effective production. Specifications must be reviewed and design trade-offs evaluated to ensure that the technical requirements are economically attainable with consideration given to performance and tolerance in relation to affordable cost.
Image-based ID readers stand poised to replace laser scanners in several industries. Thanks to advances in microprocessors, imaging sensors and decoding algorithms, ID readers have become not only more affordable, but also more powerful. Download this white paper to learn how today’s most advanced ID readers have overcome the technical and economic hurdles to offer a more attractive alternative to laser scanners as well as how to choose the right image-based ID reader for your application.
Significant changes are happening to European environmental regulations. While there has been a great deal of discussion and debate over the past few years, in June 2011 the European Union issued Directive 2011/65/ EU on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The new directive recasts Directive 2002/95/EC, and has come to be known in the industry as the RoHS Recast. While many of these changes seem confusing, compliance will be mandatory for any company that hopes to sell into that territory. This paper seeks to cut through the complications and lay a foundation that is easy to understand.
