Applied Analytics, Inc. has unveiled the ePurge X, the company's latest innovation in air-purging electronic enclosures.
The new device differs from conventional purge controllers as it is entirely solid state and more aligned with the design of AAI’s automated process analysers. AAI plans to release the ePurge to distributors and the general public in March.
Yoav Barshad, President of AAI drew attention to the cost-savings involved. He remarked, "In an industry of safety devices that have no inherent return on investment, we are offering a product that can pay for itself within five years in utility savings alone."
Meanwhile, Andy Burgess, Senior Mechanical Engineer with the firm focused on the aesthetics. He described, "When you glance through the brochure, you’ll immediately notice the form factor. The ePurge X has an ultra-slim profile that barely protrudes from the surface of the enclosure. It also has half as many components to install as the purges that are currently available.”
Burgess added, "We were compelled to develop the ePurge X when we could not find a purge solution for our own analyzer enclosures that didn’t compromise the original system’s form factor or complicate installation. There must be many manufacturers that, like AAI, carry high expectations for safety components. We are our own customer, and we witness the ePurge X exceed those expectations each day of production.”
A new generation radio-frequency Power Processing Unit (PPU) for the VASIMR® engine, built by Canada-based Aethera Technologies Ltd., has completed a series of full power acceptance tests at Ad Astra Rocket Company’s Texas facility near Houston.
