Acoustic Micro Imaging System inspects IGBT modules.

January 21, 2015

Featuring fully automated design, C-SAM® Model DF2400Z images and analyzes voids and other structural defects of power IGBT modules. Inverted transducer, placed beneath module, prevents water from reaching module circuitry. Once recipe for scanning has been defined, factory automation interface controls operation with no need for human attention. Because imaging is typically carried out before encapsulation, acoustic images reveal what type of rework is needed on rejects. Read More

Mini-Split Installation Support Tool reduces labor requirements.

January 20, 2015

Supporting up to 100 lb, Mighty Bracket™ fits most mini-split sizes and enables hands-free, single-person installation of evaporator coil. Reusable bracket, constructed of ABS plastic, hooks onto both tabs of mini-split wall mounting plate in <1 min and holds mini-split evaporator coil for electrical, refrigeration line, and condensate drain pump/hose connections. Due to 20 in. long support arms, evaporator coils can be temporarily angled away from wall at 23° to 45° for back panel access. Read More

Hyperpolarizer Upgrade Kit doubles polarization levels.

January 19, 2015

Available to owners of 9800 Series Polarean Xenon Hyperpolarizers, Upgrade Kit enables users to consistently reach polarization levels of 20–25%. Hyperpolarization technology produces hyperpolarized inert xenon gas, used in conjunction with standard MRI imaging to create high resolution 3-D images of human lung. Higher levels of polarization can reduce amount of Xenon to be inhaled, without compromising image quality, which is especially important in pediatric studies. Read More
