BPM Microsystem’s Flashstream offers flash programming of NAND and NOR flash memory at speeds as low as 2.5 percent over the theoretical programming minimum. The company’s Vector Engine uses a proprietary co-processor design to hardware accelerate flash memory waveforms during the programming cycle. Faster speeds are achieved through synchronous operations that eliminate the dead times when the DUT waits on the programmer. The result is
Watlow’s patent pending E-SAFE II hybrid power switch provides reliable and accurate power switching for the foodservice industry. The E-SAFE II is fully RoHS compliant by design and mercury-free.

Reciprocating Machinery Protector for Continuous Vibration Monitoring and Protection of Reciprocating CompressorsAugust 1, 2007 10:33 am | Comments
The IMI Sensors Division of PCB Piezotronics’ Model 649A01 Reciprocating Machinery Protector (RMP) uses next-generation impact monitoring technology. This two-wire, loop-powered, 4-20 mA transmitter detects impacts from mechanical shock events, which typically occur in or near a machine’s cylinder assembly. This technology is appropriate on reciprocating machinery where these high frequency impacts are often overlooked, or when trending overall vibration levels. The hermetically sealed design can be easily interfaced with existing alarm, control and monitoring systems such as PLCs, DCSs and SCADA systems.
