For… Continue reading Avionics Fire Detection Solved by CPI Thermal Switches
Every day in the US, you’ll see outriggers used in thousands of vehicle applications. Sometimes referred to as “stabilizers,” these small but powerful hydraulic systems do exactly that: provide stability and compensation for abnormal or uncentered loads during performance of… Continue reading Outstanding Outriggers use CPI
Military hardware never stops evolving, because threats never stop evolving. Yet proven technology like CPI thermal and waterproof switches continue to be designed into modern hardware. It comes back to survivability and endurance, and we pretty much own that. Whether… Continue reading CPI Switches Help Military Vehicles Survive
In the world of work trucks, there are literally hundreds of applications for lifts of some kind. These can be either hydraulic or electric and can be found on everything from your commonly used forklift, to scissor lifts, to liftgates… Continue reading CPI is Giving Work Trucks a Lift
Putting a precision linear sensor into a subsea environment is one of the most difficult challenges in the sensing world. Sensors produce signals and they are inherently electronics-based devices. Liquid immersion is the enemy of all things electronic, including conductors,… Continue reading Precision Under Pressure: Subsea Linear Sensors and their Engineering
To understand the unique product line that has evolved at CPI you’d have to understand the history under which that happened. Like many US companies, CPI has a rich and long history which we are proud of and which informs… Continue reading CPI History is a USA Success Story
