23.11.2023Modern, environmentally friendly energy alternatives from wind, solar, hydropower and tidal shifting are developing rapidly and constantly presenting engineers with new challenges. We'll show you how artificial intelligence, machine learning and the Internet of Thought are shaping the clean energy of the future.
14.02.2024In the medical technology sector networked medtech devices with an increasing number of smart sensors will dominate the scene. The strictest regulations and the highest level of failure protection set the path that the products and components used must follow. Miniaturization, data transfer rates and electromagnetic radiation are the explicit requirements to which board-to-board connectors are exposed. For hardware developers these are criteria that have a decisive influence on device design.
August, PeitingFor the sixth time, the Bavarian connector manufacturer ept GmbH has achieved an excellent result in the customer satisfaction survey conducted by market researchers Bishop & Associates. In the overall European ranking, ept takes second place and thus continues to improve its score compared to the 2019 result.
25.07.2023Plating coated with gold is still the number one choice in situations where a connector needs to be fully reliable over the long term – even under demanding operating and environmental conditions. However, the performance required in many applications can also be achieved with a coating system that does the job with a lower gold content.
02.08.2023Industrially manufactured goods are being put to the test more and more. In addition to high quality standards and compliance with technical specifications, the environmental compatibility of all elements of the supply chain is becoming increasingly important. And the connector market is no exception. ept GmbH traditionally coordinates all production and supply processes in such a way that, in addition to the highest level of quality, all conceivable sustainably oriented corporate management criteria come into play.
25.03.2022Battery management systems and power electronics play a key role in electromobility because they connect different components in electric vehicles. Connectors are what provide the connection function within inverters. These are needed to control and transmit signals, data, and high currents reliably, safely, quickly, and without losses despite demanding operating conditions. To do this, the connectors have to meet a number of requirements in terms of temperature resistance, compactness, and flexibility, as well as performance and robustness.
27.06.2023Increased electrical costs due to the electromobility transition, autonomous driving, and infotainment systems with high-definition 4K resolution call for new electrical system architectures in automotive engineering. The traditional decentralized electrical system architecture is reaching its limits due to its complexity and the high-speed properties required for it. ept offers the right board-to-board connectors to meet these challenges.
