CorrBlock is a time-release, biodegradable cor- rosion inhibitor block for water treatment industries. It is designed for open loop recirculating cooling
systems and waste water systems.
The block is formulated using renewable soy-bean-based wax and proven Vapor phase Corrosion
Inhibitor (VpCI) technology. The inhibitors in
CorrBlock provide mul-timetal protection and
are excellent replacement for chromates, nitrites, and other types of restricted corrosion inhibitors. The VpCIs form a strong
monomolecular layer on metal surfaces that protect
in all three phases - liquid, vapor, and the vapor-liquid
interface. CorrBlock eliminates the need for dosing
pumps and tanks for conventional liquid inhibitors as
well as protects tools, workpiece, and metalworking
machines during downtime.

Solar inverter diode
Cree Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) has demonstrated that its best-in-class SiC MOSFET and diode technologies enable previously unattainable levels of power density in string solar inverter products, yielding
greater than 99.1 percent at peak levels at one-ffth
the average size and weight of today’s silicon-based
Cree’s systems engineering team designed a
proof-of-concept 50k W string solar inverter that exhibits a remarkable 50 percent reduction in power loss and operates
at three to fve times the switching
frequency that conventional silicon
technology can currently achieve.
The combination of these two factors drastically reduces both the size and weight of
the inverter’s cooling system, as well as its fltering
components, which translates into a unit-cost reduction approaching 15 percent.
Additional applications that have been proven
to beneft from Cree SiC technology include: industrial power supplies, induction heating units, battery
charging stations, wind turbine converters, and traction inverters, amongst others.

Power management company Eaton an- nounced the launch of the technologically
advanced XP500 family of industrial touch-panel
personal computers (PCs). The powerful, multi-touch, low-maintenance touch screen allows
the user to pinch, zoom, rotate, scroll and fnger
swipe, just like a smartphone or tablet. Openness,
sturdiness and ease of use are all packed into a
premium, slim design.
Eaton developed the XP500 family especially
to meet the requirements of plant engineers and
machine builders. All solid-state memory and a
fanless design means there are no moving parts
that could compromise reliability in industrial
They are designed for
use in harsh
including hazardous UL/cUL Class I Division 2
applications, and can be connected to standard
control systems via two independent Ethernet
interfaces, as well as by its RS-485 and RS-232
All XP500 panel PCs can be easily integrated
thanks to their fully open PC design, high reliability, and fexible confgurability provided by
the Windows Embedded Standard 7 operating
system. XP500 PCs are available with widescreen
sizes of 10. 1 inches, 15. 6 inches and 21. 5 inches.

3G/LTE/Wi-Fi/GPS Omnidirectional Antenna-
Designed for M2M communications such as
remote monitoring in the oil and gas/utilities industries. The Omnidirectional Antenna is perfect
for space-constrained or budget-conscious users
because it provides multi-frequency coverage in a
small form factor. It includes three 13 pigtails; one
dedicated to GPS for communicating location; one
to the Wi-Fi 2. 4 GHz frequency band for communications with local terminals and radios; and one to
the LTE frequency bands for backhaul to the network. TESSCO No. 512336.

Variable wire resistors
for voltage adjustment
The VRH320 Variable Wire Wound Resistor has a wide range of applications for voltage
and current adjustment including industrial machinery RPM adjustment, instruments, automated
control installations, load simulation and educational modelling.
The VRH320 has been ergonomically designed
to enable simple and accurate adjustments by
use of its top mounted slider. It is encapsulated in
an IP20 rated lacquered metal casing which has
dimensions of 446mm x 93mm x 160mm.
There are six resistance values available in this
range encompassing 10 to 10K. Key specifca-tions of the ARCOL VRH320 include a 320VA continual loading with a 640VA overload capability
for a period of 15mins. As with all ARCOL products
the VRH320 is RoHS compliant.
