Specialist lacquers like conformal coatings are used throughout the Automation and Drives Sector

Until recently conformal coatings were only used for safety critical areas such as aerospace and military applications. However, with the increase in sophistication of automation and the introduction of control drive technologies into new, emerging markets, this has led to the reliability of the electronics and the systems to be examined.

Over a very short period in time we now find that automation and control drive systems must now operate in increasingly demanding environments. These hazardous environments include high humidity and temperature, chemically corrosive atmospheres and very high levels of particulate contamination. But, the electronics must still function perfectly well within these environments without significant failure in the long term.

About Dr Lee Hitchens

Dr Hitchens has been working in the electronics industry and the area of conformal coatings for over 25 years in various areas including sales and technical support. He has also been training people for almost the same amount of time in all areas of conformal coating whether that is materials & equipment selection, process development or troubleshooting to help them solve their particular problem. Recently, he decided that the industry needed a specific place where all of the useful knowledge on conformal coatings could be collated for users to find easily and use in their own production process. So, Nexus was born and he began the Nexus eBook project.
