Formula E Racing Cars
When it comes to cars, it’s all about constant improvement: going just a bit faster and a bit farther by using energy more efficiently than before. It’s an idea that has governed the automotive industry since the first combustion engines were invented.
But that was over a hundred years ago. Combustion engines – that is, engines fueled by gasoline, diesel, propane, etc – are now starting to gain a reputation as heavy on pollution, a drain on finite resources, and incompatible with a true long-term plan for global transportation.
But what is the alternative?
Making A Better Tractor Cable
Trucking can be a tough business – whether you’re dealing with thousands of miles of highways, extreme temperatures, dirt and dust, or just the wear and tear of years of service, it’s important to make sure all the parts of your tractor and trailer are working properly. And if those parts aren’t built to suit the job, they’re not going to last very long at all.
At 3-Ci, we realized this very quickly, and wondered what we could do to help. After all, some of the most important – and sensitive – parts of the entire system are the electronic cables that connect the tractor to the trailer. Besides powering the lights, they also control the brakes and signals…so it’s imperative that they work just as well at the end of the trip as they did at the beginning!
Molded, Non-Molded, And Strain Relief Assemblies
Cables are something so ubiquitous that we hardly even stop to think about how they’re made – or how they’re designed to last. It may seem as simple as tossing a bunch of wires together and attaching them to a Connector, but there’s much more to it than that! There are all kinds of techniques we use at 3-CI to prevent breakage, to ensure safety, and to enhance reliability of the transferred signals within.
