Minneapolis, MN, December 19, 2005 — Minco, a designer and manufacturer of critical components for critical applications, today launched two design kits, one for Flexible Heaters and one for Non-invasive Sensors, to meet a growing need from engineers to “self educate” early in the product development process.
Minco created the design kits to act as an instructional tutorial to provide engineers with a structured way to experiment, prototype and learn about Minco’s technology and benefits.
“Minco is focused on providing design engineers with solutions, not just products. These kits act as a first step for design engineers to test Minco heaters and sensors and ultimately find a solution to their application or problem,” said Brian Williams, Heaters Division Marketing Manager, Minco.
The Flexible Heaters Prototype Design Kit includes 12 flexible heaters of various shapes and sizes in polyimide and silicone rubber insulation. The heater kit also comes with a 100 ohm platinum RTD (resistance temperature detector) sensor and PSA and Silicone RTV adhesive. Just as valuable is the Design Guide Booklet that features a start-up guide, many pages of technical specifications and applications ideas, and whitepapers for education and prototyping techniques.
The Non-invasive Sensors Design Kit comes with five Thermal-Ribbon, Thermal-Tab, and Bolt-on RTDs that allow engineers to accurately sense temperature in places where they otherwise would have to drill or tap a sensor. The kit also includes a miniature TempTran™ temperature transmitter with 4-20 mA output and silicone stretch tape. The Design Guide Booklet also contains a start-up guide, technical specifications and whitepapers.
“Minco realizes that OEM engineers possess a need to teach themselves about technology and address product design concerns in the research and specification phases of the buying process,” said Marty Knutson, Sensors Division Marketing Manager, Minco. “The Flexible Heaters and Non-invasive Sensors Design Kits demonstrate Minco’s anticipation of that need.”
