Commercial Kitchen Fires are no Joke

The kinds of kitchens that would require a thermal detector like CPI’s Rod & Tube series, are places that get very hot normally, like over a stove. The challenge for safety designers is letting things get hot, but not crazy… Continue reading Commercial Kitchen Fires are no Joke

Fire and Ice

For many of us the idea of fire and ice might conjure up memories of the first book in Game of Thrones. Throughout that tortured story, “winter is coming,” but the forces of dragon fire threaten to keep it at… Continue reading Fire and Ice

Work Truck Safety Switch Applications

With the 2024 work truck show in full swing, the broad category of “Work Trucks” or “vocational trucks” is very much on our minds. These trucks include vehicles from ambulances to class 8 heavy trucks weighing over 33,000 pounds .… Continue reading Work Truck Safety Switch Applications

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
