High-Speed CANbus Cables


Raychem CANbus (Controller Area Network) cables cater to a variety of harsh environments, these high-speed copper cables offer a ruggedized means of transmitting data at speeds up to 1 Mb/s.

The high performance 120Ω twisted pair cables are available in constructions that meet SAE J1939 and SAE J1939-11 and -15 requirements for use in military ground vehicles. With operating temperatures ranging from minus 65°C to 200°C (depending on construction), TE’s Raychem CANBus cables are also available in constructions designed for use in aerospace applications, as well as marine applications.


Waterproof Touchscreen Monitor


The SRMHTWP-15 Series Sunlight Readable waterproof panel-mount touch screen monitors are designed to operate in direct bright sunlight, or in other high ambient-light conditions. They utilize state-of-the-art LED backlights to produce over 1,500 nits of brightness (vs. 250-300 nits for standard monitors). The 5-wire resistive touch screen can be activated by almost any object – gloved finger, stylus, pen, etc. The P-Cap version provides 10-simultaneous touch points, and can be activated via exposed finger or thin latex or cotton gloves.

They are ideal for wash-down environments or where liquids, steam or moisture may damage standard monitors. The SRMHTWP-15 Series is perfect for use in a wide range of industrial, marine, military, manufacturing, inspection, advertising and transportation applications where viewability in direct, bright sunlight is crucial.


Corrosion Analysis Software


Larkton CM corrosion rate estimation and materials selection software applies reanalysed models and experimental data for CO2 – H2S corrosion, and reviewed industry experience and inspection information. The development team also revisited the business processes and needs of corrosion and materials engineers in this new industrial era focusing on efficiency and productivity improvement.

Larkton CM software gives consistent outputs when tested against legacy corrosion models using the same limited inputs. However, it also offers the option of inputting more detailed data for deeper analysis and greater accuracy. Materials selection options are provided for a wide range of the components used in facilities, pipelines and wells to give a comprehensive output, including material choices for downhole equipment.
