Said to be redesigned for low maintenance and long service, the model 2000 G3 pump features a "bridge breaker" antibridging mechanism that runs independently of the pump's rotational speed. The result is optimized fluid feed control and, therefore, increased pumping efficiency.
Nanoform 15120, an addition to the ProtoComposites product line, is said to be the first composite stereolithography material to incorporate nanoparticle technology.
Simulating Underwater Shock Response The response of marine structures such as surface ships, submarines, and even offshore oil platforms to nearby non-contact underwater explosions is of considerable importance in their design.
Boasting a powerful magnetic shield, these low-profile DR331-7-8-9 Series surface-mount inductors provide EMI circuit protection for power supplies, instrumentation, and test equipment. Their small size makes them especially useful in portable equipment.
SlimStack connectors, featuring a 0.95-mm height, offer ultra low-profile stacking for tight packaging applications such as cell phones and PDAs. These 0.4-mm pitch surface-mount connectors come in single- and dual-row versions in circuit sizes from 7-80.
Approved for Class I and Class II applications, the ECM Series of single-output ac-dc, 40-60 watt power supplies is said to have the smallest footprint for units with these ratings. Suitable for industrial and medical use, both measure 2 x 4 in. with a 1.2 in. height.
Megaflux thin ring brushless torque motors promise high performance in precision positioning systems such as medical equipment and robotics. They are designed for direct-drive applications in large inertia or high torque load systems.
Q&A: The Nuances Of Drives It's surprisingly easy to overlook some of the most important features technology has to offer. To get readers the data they need, this article takes a look at the inner workings of today's ac drives.
The XH and XM Series are two new product families of data acquisition boards for the PXI platform. The XH Series is a high-speed board line, and the XM Series is a multifunction analog I/O board line. Pricing for the XM Series ranges from $795 to $1,295.
EEJ Series filtered power entry modules, which have current ratings from 1-20 amps, can be used in computer workstations, networking equipment, telecom-datacom equipment, test and measurement devices, and fitness equipment.
The extremely compact BMK ball monorail carriage boasts reduced height, length, and width to save space and allow lower profile stages with less mass. It's available in two sizes the BMK 15 and the BMK 20. Dimensions range from 24 to 28 mm in height, 34 to 44 mm in width, and 37 to 47.
A new line of aluminum liquid level gages can be used to view oil levels in hydraulic reservoirs, gearboxes, bearing housings, crankcases, transformers, and machinery oil reservoirs.
The Quarter-Bloc PVC True-Union ball valve for water and light chemical applications is NSF-61 approved and features all-thermoplastic construction with no metallic parts. The valve's flow characteristics benefit from a full orifice opening equal to the inside diameter of the connecting pipe.
The Mercury 1800 digital kit encoder is being billed as the smallest motion feedback optical encoder to provide 50-nanometer resolution directly from the sensor head.
The new Big Beam Sensor boasts a large field of view for measuring the width and height of solid and opaque targets. It's suitable where fast one-dimensional measurements are needed such as on a production line.
