PACOR’s new insulating materials include aerogel, which performs in low, high, and dual temperature applications, and high temperature ceramic, which provides low thermal conductivity and heat storage. Other material options include foams, rubbers, and fiberglass. PACOR, Inc.
Two of the kits are multi-purpose, two are for general purpose and one is for flexible adhesive. Each kit includes a range of tools for accurate and stable adhesion such as a cartridge gun, static mixer and a surface preparation kit. Goodfellow Corp., http://www.goodfellow.
Real-Time Middleware works with unmanned autonomous vehicle (UAV) systems to provide real-time messaging and data distribution. It complies with Data Distribution Service (DDS) systems which allows applications to communicate through anonymous publish-subscribe messaging. RTI, www.rti.
The EC-8560/PXI-8565 PXI/CompactPCI controllers feature a ruggedized extension kit that can hold up to high temperatures and harsh vibrations and a shielded cable connection up to 7 m. It can be installed in a laptop for high mobility. ADLINK Technology, http://www.adlinktech.
Galvo mirrors can be used in applications such as scanners, bar code readers, remote sensors, marking systems, and laser light shows. They are made from BK-7, fused silica or silicon, and are able to attain reflectivity of 99.9%. Reynard Corp., www.reynardcorp.
The CellEvator mixer is powered by surface acoustic waves (SAW) mixing technology. It mixes samples from the bottom up with no adverse effects on cells. The mixer prevents drop-off of flow rates, and reduces clogging and cell necrosis. Advalytix, http://www.advalytix.
The DOH-20D portable microprocessor-based dissolved oxygen meter offers a large LCD display, automatic temperature compensation, memory storage and recall, low battery consumption indicator, and auto-shut off after ten minutes. Omega Engineering, http://www.omega.com/pptst/DOH-20D.
The AMESSeal Form-In-Place gasketing system offers beads with a height tolerance of ±.05mm that are applied in various sizes with height-to-width rations from 1:1.5 to 1:6. Also offers low compression forces and easy removal for recycling. AMES, www.amesrubber.
The Gen 2 compatible HARSH-TAG-150W contains a frequency of 866 MHz to 954 MHz, measures 148 x 33 x 15 mm and weighs 65 g. It has a range performance up to 5 m on non-metal and 2.5 m on metal. PREMO Corp. S. L., www.grupopremo.
The TPS 23S Thermopile Detector is packaged with IR transmissive window with an IR longpass filter with 5.5 ?m cut on wavelength. The A2TPMI 23S Thermopile Sensor requires only three pins: object output voltage, 5 V supply voltage and ground. PerkinElmer, Inc., http://www.perkinelmer.
Modern materials technology goes “nano” because the presence, or the implementation of, nanostructures in a material can dramatically change its properties. It thus offers a huge potential to tailor synthetic materials.
Indium8.9 solder paste is thermally stable and provides low voiding properties. It also offers soft and pliable post-reflow residues and wetting that improves first-pass yields and reduces field failures. Indium Corp., http://www.indium.
The FPB100 series flow sensor offers various output options including flow switch, multi-functional pulse divider, or a 4 to 20 mA signal. It installs into pipe sizes DN 15 to DN 200 and uses polypropylene or PVDF material. Omega Engineering, http://www.omega.com/pptst/FPB100.
The EcoSpin Magnetic Encoder has a depth of just 10 mm and a spacer strip to eliminate the need for a feeler gauge and makes installation/adjustment easy and quick. The device has no moving parts. Baumer Ltd., http://www.baumerelectric.
High-density software radio PMC features four 200 MHz 16-bit A/Ds and highly optimized Virtex-5 FPGA technology. It is arranged in four banks of 64 DDC channels, and each bank shares a decimation setting that ranges from 128 to 1024. Pentek, Inc., http://www.pentek.com/whatsnew/ViewRelease.
