At Mouser, we realize the one component that’s always in short supply is time, and that’s exactly what our newest PKC delivers – a quicker, in-depth, more user-friendly lighting resource.” Mouser’s lighting PKC application training site is a comprehensive resource center spanning three areas: products, applications and design engineering resources. The Lighting Product Selector Guide is arranged into five main product categories with a graphical interface to speed navigation. Engineers can quickly narrow in on a set of products based on defined parameters/engineering standards geared to their specific design needs. To experience this new graphical interface, visit Applications Guide assists design engineers in finding products tailored for a particular end equipment lighting application such as high bay lighting or MR16 replacement. This guide navigates by block diagram, which provides a higher system level view. In addition, the site features a Resource Guide – containing videos, selection guides, white papers, application notes, key industry trends, plus other helpful design sources to help fast track the overall design process.Arranged neatly into defined categories, information can be quickly referenced by supplier or topic.
