Fast-Curing Epoxy

A high-strength, fast-curing epoxy from Master Bond, Hackensack, NJ, is designed for use in the assembly of medical devices. EP3HTND-2Med Black fully meets USP Class VI specifications. This one-part system delivers superior resistance to a variety of sterilization methods such as chemical sterilants, EtO, radiation, and especially autoclaving. As a one-component system, it does not require any mixing and essentially has an unlimited working life at room temperature. This epoxy has a paste consistency and is formulated not to flow while curing. It cures within minutes when heated at 250–300 °F.

Solid-State SMD Fuse

Schurter, Santa Rosa, CA, has released a new SMD fuse, which was designed using solidstate, thin-film technology. The High Current Fuse (HCF) has a fast-reacting breaking capacity rated 1000 A at 125 VAC/125 VDC, over a current range of 5–15 A. It is especially suited for use where the reliable interrupt of high currents is critical and where robust and space saving fuse performance is required. The temperature range, from –50 to 125 °C, as well as a vibration resistance — tested up to 1600 g — make the HCF ideal for demanding highperformance applications.

Heat Sinks

Advanced Thermal Solutions (ATS), Norwood, MA, has released a family of heat sinks designed for systems with adequate airflow. The high aspect ratio design enables ATS Pin Fin heat sinks to provide low thermal resistance from base to fins in systems where the airflow measures 200+ linear feet per minute. The cross-cut design also allows the heat sinks to be effective in systems where the airflow is ambiguous. These high-efficiency platform products, made from extruded aluminum, are available in component sizes from 10 × 10 to 60 × 60 mm. Heat sink heights range from 2 to 25 mm.

Digital Micrometer

Mahr, Providence, RI, has launched a new digital micrometer. The Micromar 40 EWRi micrometer is the latest addition to the company’s family of integrated wireless products, which includes digital calipers, indicators, and depth gages. Measurement data is transferred to an i-Stick on a computer without any interfering data cables. For data acquisition, the user just takes a measurement, and the MarCom software transmits data directly into MS Excel or via a keyboard code into any Windows program or existing SPC application. The first digital micrometer has large 10 mm digits on a high contrast digital display, making for safe fatigue-free reading of the measured values.
