Even so we felt it necessary to add more detailed descriptive passages about products and technologies, which expanded the original focus on mostly data tables and diagrams, we continue to keep the name Data Book. We updated and re-wrote most chapters for the third edition but changed to a slightly larger format of the book in order to improve its ease of use. We also expanded and updated the references at the end of each chapter which are meant to aid those readers who want to benefit from more and deeper detailed published resources.
The third edition was published in English in 2010 under the name AMI DODUCO. Since later in that year our company is owned by the investment groups Tinicum Capital Partners II and JP Asia Partners and again is registered under the former name of DODUCO, however using a new corporate identity and image. This event served as the reason to again revise the Data Book and publish the latest version under the well known corporate name of DODUCO.
This new DODUCO Data Book again is meant to be a handy reference and data source for all those who need to work in the field of electrical contacts and their applications. It can however not be a full substitute for personal discussions with experts in electrical contact technology. For such technical exchanges we offer the direct expertise and advice from our application engineers and research and development staff who are ready to answer your questions.
Please challenge us with your unique problems or special requests; because our world is the World of Electrical Contacts.
