Lite-Lok 495 is a UV light curable adhesive designed for the structural bonding of plastics and the sealing of plastic assemblies. Resistant to carpet and floor cleaning solutions, it is suitable for acrylics, polycarbonate, PVC, and other plastics. Samples are available. Permabond, 10 Finderne Ave.
The M5, billed as the smallest sensor connector, is the key element of a new sensor/connector/cabling solution for production lines and OEM production machinery designs. Both 4 and 5 mm sensors incorporating the M5 meet IP67 specs, have an LED built into the barrel, and are made of stainless steel.
A line of fully connectorized communication cords can be used in harsh environments. Originally designed for military use, the cords are manufactured with a polyurethane jacket and come pre-assembled with all appropriate contacts and connectors for assembly into communications devices.
The QVE00033 transmissive switch has a small size, a surface-mount package, and the performance to make it suitable for non-contact switching applications in disk drives, card detectors, mice and trackballs, and motors and motion controllers.
A new system combination consists of the TLL tension load cell and the PHM-100 portable hand-held transducer indicator. This system is suitable for a variety of industrial and OEM force measurement and weighing applications. The PHM-100 has a peak hold feature that captures at less than 1 msec.
The C-OK45-DL Series flowmeter uses the pelton wheel principle to measure the flow of water and other low viscosity liquids. Liquid passes through a nozzle at the inlet of the flow body and is directed onto a flat blade pelton turbine.
The GTC-M Series of rear-release connectors is suitable for applications that require heavy-duty connections including railway, mass transit, commercial, and geophysical uses.
The SP1421 Push Pull solenoid is designed for demanding push or pull applications such as printers, electronic locks, parking meters, vending machines, dispensing equipment, safes, cash drawers, and similar applications requiring compact design and rugged construction.
A new slide is designed specifically for heavy electronic enclosure applications. Designated the 3507, it offers full extension with 2 in. of over travel and accommodates 4U and 8U rack-mountable chassis. The full ball bearing slide measures 0.5 in. wide and 2.03 in. high.
The SG-10 Series of external gear pumps is designed to meet the demand for higher capacity and pressure. The units have capacities in the 12 to 60 gpm flow range and are rated to 500 psi on typical industrial applications but can be applied up to 2,500 psi on other applications.
The Model 8412 piezoelectric accelerometer is a self-contained vibration measuring system with a built-in amplifier within its housing. Offering wide frequency response, it is designed for the measurement of medium level, broadband frequency vibrations.
Featuring surface-mount technology, the RM21 Series is a high-performance size 21 modular encoder with a small axial length of 0.84 in. maximum. A single push on the patented slide lock mechanism results in the modular encoder being aligned, centered, and gapped for maximum performance.
The T4011 heavy-duty safety interlock switch is available with a manual latch release mechanism. The match mechanism locks the actuator in the switch until the release button is pulled, allowing the actuator to be removed from the switch.
The Model 382285 dual tracking dc power supply provides the capabilities of two units combined into one. The voltage and current outputs are simultaneously or independently adjustable. The unit provides four modes of operation. They include tracking, independent, series, and parallel.
