W. L. Gore & Associates (Elkton, MD) has
expanded its line of protective vents with
a new product specifically engineered to
increase the reliability of outdoor electronic
enclosures that are commonly exposed to
changing weather and environmental condi-
tions. The Series VE9 Adhesive Vent enables
outdoor electronic enclosures to be designed
with normal seals and gaskets, without the
need to upgrade. Features include:
A durable adhesive and all ePTFE
A UL-listed ePTFE membrane.
A typical airflow of 1150 ml/min/cm2.
Availability in various sizes.
Layer Coils for High Voltage Electronics
The Perfect-Layer Coil Series from Innovative Power (Menifee, CA)
is flexible and ideal for a range of applications. Features of the
