J4 Ball Switch For Robust Position Sensing

For many applications, standard garden variety ball switches won’t cut it. In fact, even Google is confused about ball switches, conflating them with tilt switches that happen to use a floating ball in their implementation. But engineers know, that’s not… Continue reading J4 Ball Switch For Robust Position Sensing

RPG Helicopter Defense.

As one of the workhorse helicopter assets of allied military’s around the world, the Chinook CH-47 and variants carry more cargo and soldiers into battle than any other flying aircraft. It is known as a “battlefield multiplier” and its importance… Continue reading RPG Helicopter Defense.

More Unique Marine Applications for CPI Switches

CPI Waterproof switches are seeing more and more niche applications where a robust switch with appropriate mounting hardware can be used in an environment that puts electrical controls in close proximity to water. Seacock Position Monitor No one would argue… Continue reading More Unique Marine Applications for CPI Switches

CPI Limit Switches – Climbing that Mounting

Designers looking for a robust waterproof limit switch, will almost certainly run across our switches at some point. It’s that “all roads lead to Rome” thing. Sometimes however, its not just the stainless steel, high electromechanical endurance aspect of our… Continue reading CPI Limit Switches – Climbing that Mounting

Why Intrinsic Safety Ratings Matter

As any manufacturer of hydraulic cylinders, or linear position sensors will tell you, achieving intrinsic safety ratings of ATEX, or IECEx (European) isn’t easy.  And it isn’t cheap. But it is important and if you are considering ways to maximize… Continue reading Why Intrinsic Safety Ratings Matter

CPI’s Active RPG Defense System for the US Military

While CPI is certainly well known for its Waterproof Switches and Linear Position Sensors, lesser known are certain patents and intellectual property that CPI regularly develops.  One of the most exciting ideas has to be CPI’s RPG Active Defense System… Continue reading CPI’s Active RPG Defense System for the US Military

CPI Thermal Switches Are Heating Up

The vast majority of thermal switch applications we get have to do with keeping things from getting too hot. Just a few examples of this include: Gally fire detection Avionics Bay Over Temperature Brake over temperature warnings Hydraulic fluid temperature… Continue reading CPI Thermal Switches Are Heating Up
