Conveyor System Valve

The Series VFD poppet valve for zero pressure accumulation conveyor systems from SMC Corp. of America (Indianapolis) provides a coefficient of volume flow (Cv) of 0.10 with an operating pressure range of 0 to 72 psi to handle large pressure drops found on long conveyor runs. It is designed to be incorporated with a conveyor system’s control logic and sensors, controlling the air pressure used for roller actuation and roller braking to make for smoother product transfer.

Ball Lenses

Deposition Sciences, Santa Rosa, CA, has released Iso-SphereTM Antireflection (AR) Coated Ball Lenses for fiber optics, telecom, and datacom applications. The ball lenses are an optical method for collimating the output of an optical fiber or laser diode and can be used in fiber-to-fiber, diode-to-fiber, and fiber-to-detector coupling tasks. DSI’s IsoDynTM low-pressure chemical vapor deposition technology creates a uniformity of the AR coating, eliminating the need for orientation of the lens in the customer’s device.
