How Added Electronics Improve Your Cable Assembly Design

Written by Epec Engineered Technologies
Posted on April 9, 2018 at 12:42 PM

As custom manufactured cable assemblies have grown in complexity, it has become far more common to see various electronics integrated directly into the finished design. The inclusion of electronics into a cable assembly design can consist of adding a switch, PCB, LED, or a multitude of other components. Once added, these components offer a much higher level of sophistication to the cable assembly while allowing the included electronics the ability to withstand a much more rugged working environment.

PCB Conformal Coating With Battery Packs

Written by Epec Engineered Technologies
Posted on November 20, 2017 at 3:03 PM

It is important to be aware that certain applications will have battery packs that may be exposed to corrosive elements such as acidic, salt, and on occasion conductive substances and fluids. Over time this type of exposure can slowly corrode the PCBA, components, and solder joints. This type of corrosion can cause premature failure, short circuits, and or dangerous conditions that could lead to fire or even an explosion.

RMA Process and Root Cause Analysis in Manufacturing

Written by Epec Engineered Technologies
Posted on May 11, 2017 at 12:34 PM

We find that return merchandise authorizations (RMAs) are a powerful statement of a customer’s level of dissatisfaction. RMAs can offer evidence if a manufacturing process fell short of its goal, there was a lack of communication throughout processes, or even misdiagnosed a problem. In any case, we stand behind our product and are ready to support our customer.
