FW Murphy OPL Series High Quality Pressure Swichgages®
“FW Murphy” is the result of one man's search for reliable and high quality engine protection along with customer focus and innovative ideas. While Frank W. "Pat" Murphy (brother of MurCal’s founder Art Murphy) was a sales manager for a major equipment distributor in the 1930's, he found that his customers' main complaint was "burned up" engines, so he decided to develop a simpler yet more effective "Safety Switch." Pat's idea, later renamed the Swichgage®, was to combine an indicating gage with a switch that would stop the engine when low oil pressure or high coolant temperature existed. It was a simple design, easy to understand – and it worked well.

J1939: A Common Language Across Manufacturers
J1939 is a set of standards defined by SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) for networking and communication in the commercial vehicle sector. They are used in heavy-duty vehicles such as trucks and buses, ships to ski lifts, mobile hydraulics, etc. The focal point of the application is the networking of the powertrain.
All About Contactors
When applying the control voltage on the coil leads a one and a two, a magnetic field will be generated, attracting the movable lion core towards the fixed core, so the movable contacts which are fixed to the movable core, will move as well towards the fixed contacts to make a contactor and allow the power lines to run to the load. If we interrupt the control voltage, supplying the coil, the magnetic field will disappear, and the fourth spring will push the movable parts back again to their original position that will interrupt the power going to the load.

How MurCal & Pacific Power Group solved an obsolete display issue for MTU owners
n 2012, MTU Solutions discontinued selling the HV1000-MTUJ. This Engine Display Model was designed for instrumentation and monitoring on electronically controlled engines communicating using SAE J1939 and NMEA 2000. It was a multifunction tool that enabled marine operators to view many different engine or transmission parameters and service codes and could support up to four engines. Unfortunately, when they stopped producing it, they left Boat/Yacht owners including the US Navy with no easy replacement offering.

All About Solenoids
The term solenoid was coined in 1823 by André-Marie Ampère, a French physicist, mathematician and lay catholic who was one of the founders of the science of classical electromagnetism, which he referred to as "electrodynamics". “Solen” in Greek means channel or pipe, which is why he named it Solenoid. Ampère was an autodidact and professor at the École polytechnique and Collège de France, as well as a member of the French Academy of Sciences. The ampere, a SI unit of electric current measurement, is named after him. The Eiffel Tower also features his name among its 72 inscriptions.
