AlphaWire’s new ThermoThin Hook-Up Wire

AlphaWire’s new ThermoThin Hook-Up Wire delivers outstanding high temperature performance in an ultra-thin package

Now Available at Aerco

ECA Fluoropolymer insulation; exceptionally wide temperature range; suits oil and gas, chemical, medical, military and other applications

Exceptionally thin and lightweight, Alpha Wire’s new ThermoThin Hook-Up Wire offers outstanding performance for a wide range of demanding applications and environments. ThermoThin is now available from Aerco, the distributor and stockist of electrical and electronic components servicing hi-rel markets. ThermoThin Hook-Up Wire delivers 600V performance across an exceptionally wide temperature range of -150degC to +300degC, and is well suited for applications where premium performance must be matched with space and weight savings. Strategic industries for ThermoThin include medical devices, semiconductor production, geothermal energy generation, energy production, military equipment and the oil and gas industry.  For military use, ThermoThin is suitable for applications where MIL-W-16878/4/5/6 type wires have been specified, but where a Mil Spec rating is not actually required.

ThermoThin Hook-Up Wire features ECA fluoropolymer insulation, a new material that combines the beneficial properties of perfluoroplastics while maintaining operational performance under extreme temperatures and harsh environmental conditions. ECA has excellent dielectric properties making ThermoThin resilient, as well as ultra-thin and light weight.  ThermoThin has similar characteristics to PTFE hookup wire but in a thinner and therefore far lighter form, saving space and weight. ThermoThin also boasts outstanding UV, chemical and water resistance, while its abrasion resistance is comparable to PTFE.  One stark difference between PTFE and the ECA material is ThermoThin’s ability to run longer continuous lengths. 1000 feet of PTFE typically consists of three separate pieces while ThermoThin can run for 5000 continuous feet.

ThermoThin Hook-Up Wire features nickel-plated copper conductor wire in sizes 36 to 16 AWG. In sizes 30 AWG to16 AWG it is approved to UL AWM 11540, UL 80degC Oil, UL Gas Res, horizontal flame and CE approved.  36 – 32 AWG sizes are CE approved.  It has Reach approval and is RoHS compliant. ThermoThin Hook-Up Wire is available in black, white, red, blue, green, orange, yellow, brown, violet, and slate with additional colours available on request and is in stock now at Aerco.

Growing your fan base

Failure to provide adequate cooling for an enclosure is in many instances to plan for the electrical equipment or electronics it contains to fail, with resultant cost, labour and replacement equipment implications.  Overheating can be prevented with the addition of the correct fan and with careful selection, this adds little to the overall cost. Aerco distributes fans from ADDA, Etri, Sofasco, Delta, Torin-Sifan, Comair Rotron and many others, and offers no-obligation technical advice on the best products for your application and budget.   Jason Slaughter takes a look at a selection.

For a high airflow, competitively-priced solution, the Sofasco D17051V12-HBL axial fan in a 172 x 51mm frame size is suitable for cooling many types of enclosures.  With a maximum airflow capability of 103 litres/sec (220CFM), this rugged fan features a die-cast aluminium frame, a plastic (UL94V-0) impeller and a high performance dual ball-bearing system, and is used extensively in cooling UPS systems, commercial refrigeration units and other demanding applications in the medical, telecommunication, commercial, military aviation and aerospace industries.

As well as standard axial and centrifugal design fans, many other airflow designs are available from the world’s leading fan manufacturers to meet a huge variety of applications.  Fans and fan accessories now include backward curve motorised impellers, frameless fans, tangential cross-flow blowers, flat blowers, chip coolers, CPU coolers and combined heat pipes and fan assemblies.   There have been developments and improvements to bearings – ball bearings are often the most costly component in a fan, and different types of bearing are now available from most manufacturers. In addition to conventional ball and sleeve bearing fans, some use both within the same fan assembly.  Different types of impeller are now in common use, including sickle blade, paddle blade and static outlet blade fans.

Well-known in the electronic thermal management field, particularly in the IT industry, ADDA has developed its GP Series for modern, densely packed electronics enclosures.  A high performance DC fan that delivers high airflow against high system pressure, this highly-efficient venturi design is combined with a motor delivering up to 12,000 rev/min to provide airflow up to 103 litres/sec (220 CFM).  Seven frame sizes and three supply voltages (12VDC, 24VDC and 48VDC) give 30 different combinations for design flexibility.  This series also has a quality ball bearing system, and is a cost-effective answer to cooling requirements providing maximum heat dissipation with minimum power consumption and low operating noise levels.

For enclosed electronics and equipment, Delta, the world’s largest manufacturer of fans and fan components, offers many thermal solutions based on DC brushless fan technology, to offer the maximum operating performance, with reduced downtime and optimal thermal protection.  The AFB Range of axial fans is often used for telecommunications racking, and is available in sizes from 40mm x 40mm up to 172mm x 172mm.  Varying voltages from 5VDC to 48VDC are available across the range, with airflows starting at 6 CFM up to 290 CFM.  Delta has also just announced a new line of EC (Electronically Commutated) fans, which are eco-friendly and use DC technology in AC format for AC applications.  These offer high efficiency for energy saving, combined with low vibration and low noise.

Winter Woes

Two planes on a runway in the snowYou may be familiar with the film, “Planes Trains and Automobiles”, a movie starring the great Steve Martin and the late, great, John Candy. This film follows the adventures and misadventures of Steve Martin’s character as he struggles to get home for the Thanksgiving Holiday, initially hindered, but eventually helped by John Candy’s character.

This film is almost a documentary. At the end of November, the transport system of the USA goes into meltdown as everyone tries to get home for the holiday. Planes fill up with passengers, and freight tends to be pushed onto the back burner, causing delays in deliveries.

Then, we have Christmas. Obstructing the US Mail is a Federal Offence, punishable by imprisonment. I have known Freight Consignments to be taken off Aircraft to be replaced by Christmas Cards, and it is a very brave and foolish Cargo Master who objects.

And if that isn’t bad enough, we have the weather. Warm, moist air is drawn up from the Gulf of Mexico, and slams into Arctic blasts from the north, creating super cells that dump huge amounts of snow on the Eastern Seaboard, that take days to clear, exacerbating existing delays in the shipment of goods.

So, as we move into winter, if you are sourcing goods from the USA, it is a wise virgin who keeps her lamp trimmed, or in this case, it is a Wise buyer who gets his order in early.

If you have a requirement for December or January, or even February, call us now to discuss scheduled deliveries. Better that your goods are on our shelves rather than sitting on the tarmac in New Jersey. It’s all about flattening the curves.
