Designed for easier integration into small (up to 2l) outdoor electronic enclosures, W. L. Gore & Associates has announced the compact, low-profile GORE PolyVent XS. It was developed to meet the growing need to design increasingly-complex electronics into ever-smaller, ever-lighter outdoor enclosures and to more easily integrate robust venting performance that protects device reliability and longevity in the face of harsh environmental conditions.
John Zhao, Product Line Manager, W. L. Gore & Associates, commented: “At Gore, we focus on a product’s ‘fitness for use’ in a given application. And GORE PolyVent XS is truly an excellent fit for small enclosures. It packs a high level of performance into a very compact vent design, to reliably protect the integrity of enclosures with up to 2l volume. The GORE PolyVent XS is also well-suited for applications requiring a venting solution that will not compromise the overall design.”
Enhanced design options and easy integration
The compact, low-profile GORE PolyVent XS offers engineers more design options, because it optimises three critical dimensions:
Robust performance to rigorous standards
Despite its compact size, the GORE PolyVent XS offers notable advantages in the field – all designed to help small outdoor enclosures withstand harsh environmental conditions:
"With GORE PolyVent XS, reliability is assured, because the quality is built in. Each vent is laser-marked, and individually inspected before shipment, so customers can have 100% product traceability and full confidence in our venting performance,” added Boris Su, Technical Manager, W. L. Gore & Associates.
