Chicagoland-Wisconsin ERA Hosts Educational Program

August 24th, 2018

 

The Chicagoland-Wisconsin Chapter of the Electronics Representatives Association (ERA) held an educational presentation and lunch on June 1, 2018, at Avnet Inc., in Hoffman Estates, Ill.

The event featured guest speaker Richard Greaves, senior partner at Empowering Systems. Greaves’ presentation, “Leverage the Latest Collaboration Tools,” discussed the latest collaboration tools and why Office 365 is a great platform for rep firms and all salespeople.

Chapter President Rick LaPiana of Cain-Forlaw Company said, “I am a strong believer that collaboration is key to efficiency and success in component sales, but I was not aware of all the tools, tips and tricks that Office 365 provides. Rich Greaves did a nice job illustrating the benefits at our June 1 chapter event. In fact, this meeting convinced me to move the entire company over to Microsoft 365. Everyone who attended, was pleased with the interaction and discussion at the event.”

Chapter Vice President, Fiscal & Legal, Kingsland Coombs, CPMR, CSP, of Control Sales Inc., who helped organize the event, added: “Rich was tasked with explaining and demonstrating for us the latest in collaboration software tools. He did a very fine job showing us the benefits of the Office 365 suite of products including the Microsoft Teams application. Since the presentation, our company has started to use Teams for file sharing, chatting and screen sharing. We are pleased with the results so far and thank Rich for the nudge we needed to get started!”

The chapter is planning more networking and educational events for the remainder of 2018. For more information, visit www.chiwisera.com.

C&K’s New KSC PF Switch is Compact, Water Resiliant and Potting Friendly

August 8th, 2018

The new KSC PF switch provides designers with a next-generation switch solution that is compact yet resilient to water ingression – and made to be potting friendly.

Features include:

  • Unique combination of a compact form factor (6.2 x 6.2 x 5.2mm)
  • IP67 sealed with life cycles up to 1,000,000
  • SMT soft actuator tactile switch with a potting friendly extended cage, which decreases potting level tolerance, enables faster production and increases quality. Potting is often necessary to ensure complete protection while a sealed switch is in use – but potting levels are typically difficult to control in production. In addition, the traditional method of using a flat switch top risks the possibility of potting moving inward and blocking the actuator. By incorporating an extended cage, this issue is avoided.
