Vivarium SensorBAPI's new Vivarium Sensor is now available

Cross Plains, WI. -- The Vivarium Room sensor is a room sensor which provides both humidity and temperature measurement. This unit has been designed for washdown or wipedown areas where the unit will be exposed to high moisture levels. The transmitter circuitry and sensing elements* have been protected from moisture by encapsulating them with BAPI's specially formulated epoxy. To further protect the unit, etched Teflon leadwires are used and twist-on sealant filled connectors are provided for all terminations.

*Note: The humidity sensor cannot be encapsulated since it is an active sensor (it must be exposed to the moisture in the air in order to measure the relative humidity), so it may need to be replaced periodically.

EIM Miniature HubEIM Miniature Hub Combines Cost and Convenience

Downers Grove, Illinois Contemporary ControlsŇ DIN-rail EIM miniature repeating hub in the CTRLinkÔ family saves space and money for the user in building automation applications. Model EIM4-10T is classified as a compact, four-port Industrial Ethernet hub, capable of increasing network distances beyond the 100-meter limit of the 10BASE-T specification. One port can be used as an uplink port to connect two hubs together; thereby, eliminating a crossover cable. It supports the signaling requirements of 10BASE-T while conforming to the standards for IEEE 802.3 repeater units.

EIS Miniature SwitchEIS Miniature Switch Delivers Affordable Ethernet in a Compact Size

Contemporary ControlsŇ EIS miniature switching hub in the CTRLinkÔ family features a breakthrough in switch technology. The EISM5-100/T is designed for control panels where space is at a premium. It combines reliability and flexibility with increased network performance, all with cost-savings in mind for building automation applications such as environmental control.

The EISM5-100/T is designated as a five-port Industrial Ethernet switching hub, comparable in function and capabilities to its larger EIS8-100T counterpart. One port can be used as an uplink port to connect two hubs together; thereby, eliminating the need for a crossover cable. Similar to other switches, it segments the Ethernet network into five separate collision domains, acting as a bridge to increase network diameter.

Media ConvertersMedia Converters Prove a Trouble-Free and Cost-Effective Approach for Adding Fiber to Networks

Contemporary ControlsŇ Industrial Ethernet Media Converters in the CTRLinkÔ  family are the perfect solution for building automation networking needs, requiring conversion between copper to fiber media. Appearing as transparent devices, media converters prove a trouble-free and cost-effective approach for these industrial applications.
