Compact dc/dc power supply modules for use in PC/104 embedded systems accept input voltages from 8 to 30V dc, making them compatible with both 12- and 24-V systems. Output power is provided directly onto the bus connectors, and on an auxiliary connector for external tapping. The family includes a model with two RS232/422/485 serial ports, eliminating the need for additional external boards.

Spring-loaded thermoplastic check valves leverage Viton seals and are assembled in sizes up to 4 inches with socket, threaded, or flanged connections. Rated at 150 psi, the opening pressure of the valve is adjustable without the need for tools across a range of 2 to 15 psi. Since the valves are thermoplastic, no painting or coating is necessary to protect the unit.

The Smoothline impeller, for use in dual-impeller turbine agitators, has a design that reportedly prevents media entrapment when used in food processing and pharmaceutical applications. It features FDA-approved Teflon gaskets between every joint, and polished-surface finishes to roughness values as fine as 4 to 7 µinches RA. This design disassembles to pass through manways on process vessels. Once inside, it reassembles with a non-metallic strap wrench.

The Integral Series® combines a pump and integrated brushless dc drive technology into a single, compact unit. The system is constructed with the drive stator interacting directly with the pump. The drive stator operates the pump electromagnetically, with no moving parts or direct contact with the internal pumping components. In addition, the drive control electronics have been removed from the drive stator assembly and can be supplied on a separate circuit board or integrated into an existing circuit board.
