Thermal Switches in Work Truck Applications

Harsh duty thermal switches like CPI’s have seen an evolution for over 70 years. Their tough operating capability and high degree of accuracy and dependability have made them ideal for military and tough commercial applications in aviation, construction, mining and… Continue reading Thermal Switches in Work Truck Applications

Renewable Energy Applications Use CPI Thermals

Lately it feels like there is a race between the widespread improvement and adoption of renewable energy sources, and the worst effects of a rapidly warming planet. We’re not there yet but the dedicated and intelligent work of so many… Continue reading Renewable Energy Applications Use CPI Thermals

Avionics Fire Detection Solved by CPI Thermal Switches

CPI Thermal Switches are solving fire and heat detection applications for a large variety of Military and Non-Military Applications.  Typically used for these applications is our Rod & Tube line of Thermal switches owing to several important operational characteristics. For… Continue reading Avionics Fire Detection Solved by CPI Thermal Switches

What “Oppenheimer” Missed about Hydrogen

In the movie “Oppenheimer” one of the key plot points is the discussion of the development of the hydrogen bomb vs. the original atomic bomb. While the atomic bomb operates on nuclear fission, the hydrogen bomb is both a fission… Continue reading What “Oppenheimer” Missed about Hydrogen

CPI Military Switching Products

CPI – Keeping Military Personnel Safe for almost 80 Years Unless you are a rabid CPI company history buff, (like us) you may not know that CPI’s original switch parts developed back in 1946, were thermal switches designed for transport… Continue reading CPI Military Switching Products

Versatile CPI Thermals Rack Up Design-In’s

There’s a reason why CPI Thermals feature so highly in so many Google search results for thermal switches. It seems even the artificially intelligent Google algorithm, has figured out that there aren’t many better results for “high temperature switches” or… Continue reading Versatile CPI Thermals Rack Up Design-In’s

Clean Technology for A Greener World

Progress toward lower carbon emissions, and greener power and transportation choices have created some amazing and exciting evolutions in technology. Green Technology goes alongside the concept of sustainability, which seeks to balance the efforts around protecting the environment, with a… Continue reading Clean Technology for A Greener World

Aircraft Fire Detection – Spot Fire detection Systems

For Aircraft and aviation related components, reliable high temperature detection is a key system for preventing a wide variety of in-flight system failures, or activating fail-safe mechanisms especially in so-called “spot-fire detection” applications. Indeed CPI’s X1 thermal switch is often… Continue reading Aircraft Fire Detection – Spot Fire detection Systems
