PEC – RV Style Potentiometers- Friday, September 27, 2013

Precision Electronics Corporation (PEC) manufactures high-quality industrial and military potentiometers. PEC is able to custom-tailor electrical and physical characteristics to meet your needs without sacrificing quality. For this reason; PEC potentiometers can be found in aerospace, telecommunications and industrial applications. Moreover, PEC products have appeared on the US Government’s Qualified Products List for the past 30 years.

PEC offers several different series of RV style potentiometers. Each PEC RV style potentiometer is manufactured from a hot molded carbon element, comes with a stainless steel shaft and meets or exceeds MIL-R-94. For applications that require a low profile potentiometer, PEC offers their Mil Style RV5. For applications that require a rugged potentiometer, you can choose PEC’s Mil Style RV8. Finally, if high reliability in a compact size is required, PEC offers their Mil Style RV6.

Thermal Imaging Infrared Cameras – FLIR- Friday, September 27, 2013

With an increased demand for infrared products across a growing number of markets, FLIR has become a world leader in the design and manufacturing of Thermal Imaging Infrared Cameras. Today, FLIR’s thermal imaging products can be found in commercial, industrial and government markets.

Thermal Imaging Infrared Cameras:

A Thermal Imaging Infrared Camera renders infrared radiation as visible light, which allows its user to see areas of heat through various barriers. Thermal Imaging Infrared Cameras are rugged and are constructed to be heat and water resistant. Many Thermal Imaging Infrared Cameras are handheld, however, they may also be mounted to helmets or various equipment; providing the user with a portable and manageable field device.

Who uses FLIR cameras and where?

Commercial applications: FLIR’s thermal night vision cameras may be used for individual consumers, first responders, firefighters, security professionals and OEM’s.

Industrial applications: FLIR’s infrared cameras can be used for building diagnostics, research and development, gas detection, furnace or boiler inspection and other electro-mechanical imaging purposes.

Government systems: FLIR’s thermal imaging cameras may be used surveillance, threat detection, radiation detection, explosives and narcotics detection, perimeter intrusion detection and field-based chemical analysis.

Micropac- Friday, September 27, 2013

Founded in 1963, Micropac Industries is a diversified, high technology company specializing in high reliability microcircuit multi-chip modules, Hall Effect devices and optoelectronic components/assemblies. Micropac develops and manufactures complete custom designs to meet specific customer applications. For over 50 years, Micropac has served commercial, industrial, military/aerospace and medical industries.

In June 2013, Micropac introduced a new family of Isolated Solid State Industrial Power Controllers (IPC01). Their new isolated controllers combine the functionality of a solid state relay, resettable circuit breaker, and output status monitor all in one convenient panel mount package. This new packaging allows a system integrator to “Switch, Protect and Manage” equipment in a more efficient and cost effective manner.

Micropac’s family of IPC’s offer DC operation up to 400V and 10Amps, AC operation up to 280V and 10Amps, operating temperature between -40°C and +85°C, and short circuit and overload protection.

When designing a new application or redesigning a current application, the Micropac IPC provides the highest level of overload protection, remote power switching and output status reporting; all in one compact, safe and reliable package.
