To answer this question, you first need to know what an IP69K package is. The (IEC) developed its IEC 60529 rating system to define different degrees of protection (i.e., ingress protection (IP)) for enclosures. The most recent version is IEC 60529:1989+AMD1:1999+AMD2:2013 CSV, Consolidated version, Degrees of protection provided by enclosures (IP Code). It costs hundreds […]

Temperature is the most frequently measured real-world variables, and despite its age, the thermocouples are still among the most-used temperature sensors. They are used in test and measurement equipment, instrumentation, and even in standard home ovens due to their low cost, reliability, simplicity, and ability to measure into the hundreds of degrees. What is a […]

“Passives” in general within the electronics community are devices that do not drive or transmit power or signals. Passives do not control electricity directly and do not require external power sources to accomplish control of an electrical signal. Examples of passive components are resistors (R), capacitors (C), inductors (L), transformers, antennas, potentiometers (variable resistors), diodes […]
