Thermal Orion Fans Offers 1U High Six-Position Short Fan Tray Orion Fans has strengthened its AC fan tray product offering with the development of the six-position, 1U high OA600ST fan tray. The short fan tray features a 2M-length power cord for North American NEMA 5-15P or IEC320-C14 connection, protected lighted rocker switch and a resettable circuit breaker for protection. The OA600ST series six-position fan tray has sealed ball-bearing fans and installs in any standard 19 inch rack. Designed for a variety of racks and enclosure applications including industrial control cabinets and network system enclosures, the 1U high OA600ST series is a price-competitive six-position fan tray for the market. Available in 115 VAC and 230 VAC versions, the OA600ST series achieves airflows up to 620 CFM and a noise-level of 56 dB. With an operating temperature range of -40°C to 75°C and a power rating of 90 W, the OA600ST series fan tray has a life expectancy of 60,000 hours at 25°C. The steel fan trays feature a black electro deposit finish, and are ready for insertion into any 19 inch rack. Fluke Releases TiX Series Infrared Cameras Fluke Corp. has launched its highest resolution infrared camera ever, the Fluke TiX series infrared cameras. The TiX1000 (with 1,024 by 768 resolution), TiX660 and TiX640 (both 640 by 480) feature up to ten times the on-camera pixels as are available on standard 320 by 240 cameras and a large 5.6-inch articulating display to help identify issues while still in the field. The TiX Expert series delivers detailed image quality, the most advanced focusing options available on one infrared camera, and the versatility to capture accurate measurements from targets that are challenging, dangerous, or moving too fast. The SuperResolution mode feature on the TiX1000 and TiX660 cameras increase image resolution, when viewed in the included SmartView software, four times more than what you get on camera. For example, SuperResolution reveals HD quality in the TiX1000 images with 3.1 million pixels. The TiX660 SuperResolution images have 1.2 million pixels. This higher resolution helps better identify potential issues that might have been missed with other infrared cameras. The TiX series can also be sub-windowed to 240 Hz frame rate to capture and analyze sudden temperature changes that occur within a second for advanced research and development applications. With eight lens options (two telephoto, two wide angle, three macro and one standard), the TiX series can also capture images from very close up to long range to meet a wide variety of applications. The TiX series cameras feature advanced focus options for consistently in-focus images. The EverSharp multifocal recording mode utilizes the focus motor to capture multiple images from varying focal distances with the push of a button. Using advanced algorithms, Fluke SmartView software combines the images taken 24 Winter 2014 * www.ElectronicsProtectionMagazine.com from multiple focal distances and creates an image that sharpens the detail of not just the initial focal point, but the elements around the focal point, providing an in-focus image for objects at different distances. This along with LaserSharp Auto Focus, auto focus, and manual focus provides a variety of methods to capture consistently in-focus images. TiX series Infrared Cameras are part of the Fluke Connect system, which allows technicians to wirelessly transmit measurement data from their test tools to their smart phones and tablets for secure storage on the cloud and universal team access from the field. With Fluke Connect, teams can access past infrared inspections on the go and look at trends over time. The Fluke Connect app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Minkels Introduces its Free Standing Cold Corridor for Modular Aisle Containment Minkels has launched the Free Standing Cold Corridor. The ultra-modular aisle containment design has been developed for both corporate and commercial data centers. The self-supporting construction offers a pay-as-you-grow model for energy-efficient separation of hot and cold air flows, eliminating the need for an initial investment in racks. The Minkels Free Standing Cold Corridor is a fully self-supporting aisle containment design. It allows isolated corridors to be created without data centre racks. The solution is modular and therefore flexible concept for keeping hot and cold airflows separate. The method is energetically efficient. From the moment it is implemented, the Free Standing Cold Corridor offers the same level of energy efficiency as a standard Cold Corridor design with data center racks. The aisle containment design is a modular one consisting only of wall panels, roof panels and doors, offering corporate and commercial data centers a pay-as-you-grow model that provides energy efficiency at low startup costs (CAPEX). The far-reaching modularity in the structural details allows the Free Standing Cold Corridor to offer complete flexibility in terms of the racks and the equipment actually placed inside, including storage and network equipment. Minkels' Free Standing Cold Corridor is compatible with the Minkels Next Generation Cold Corridor, an aisle containment solution that does use racks to support the structure. The benefit of this is that all the optional add-on modules of the Next Generation Cold Corridor can be integrated seamlessly with the Free Standing Cold Corridor. Honeywell's Advanced Materials Help Moble Devices Dissipate Heat Honeywell Electronic Materials advanced materials are being integrated into the production of tablets and smartphones, helping them stay cool and perform better. Leading mobile electronics manufacturers are using Honeywell's thermal interface materials (TIMs) to dissipate the heat produced by increasingly powerful chips at the heart of these devices. If not managed properly, the heat can lead to performance issues and even cause the devices to stop performing altogether. "End users demand a lot from their devices and our materials help manufacturers manage heat that can threaten performance http://www.ElectronicsProtectionMagazine.com
