Montana Instruments Corporation announces the Cryostation Microscope, for high magnification physics experiments at 3 Kelvin!

Montana Instruments Corporation (Bozeman, MT), the world’s leading manufacturer of automated optical cryostats, announces the addition of the Microscope option to its closed cycle cryostat, the Cryostation™. Many low temperature material science experiments require high magnification optics to image the sample surface. Historically, this research has been limited to using objectives outside the vacuum space of the cryostats and dealing with the distortions of the vacuum window. This innovation allows user to position high quality optics near their sample without any intervening windows.

The system uses a 100X Zeiss quality objective with a working distance of 310 microns and a numerical aperture of 0.9, and can be outfitted with almost any vacuum compatible microscope objective.

A previous barrier to putting high quality objectives in the vacuum space of a low temperature system is that as a lens cools, its individual optical elements change shape, the optical performance degrades, and the lens may even crack. In order to prevent this damaging distortion, and to preserve the optical quality, a patent pending design maintains the lens at room temperature. By mounting the objective inside the temperature stabilized sample chamber, once the system reaches the target temperature, any drift due to temperature changes is eliminated.

The Cryostation has become a reliable workhorse for the low temperature research community. As a closed cycle cryostat, it doesn’t require costly helium for cooling, but uses a reliable refrigeration cycle cryocooler. The system is best known for its low vibrations of less than 5nm and its rock solid temperature stability of less than 10mK. Researchers appreciate the ease of access to their samples under test, both for setup and for optical access.

Pioneers in the world of cold science automation, Montana Instruments designs, manufactures, and supports cryostat systems around the world. Visit the company’s website at www.montanainstruments.com.

Lamp Post Electrical Supply The Best Of Stainless Steel Electrical Fittings

Lamp Post Electrical are pleased to supply electrical fitting of every shape and requirement for the electrical market place but it is particularly pleased to be able to supply the Nexus range of stainless steel switches and sockets for the household and commercial building electrical supply fittings. Stainless steel has many advantages over other materials and the Nexus range has given Lamp Post Electrical one of the best looking as well as one of the highest quality ranges of electrical fittings on the market today. The electrical engineer can be very happy to work with this range as it produces an excellent finish wherever it is used and they can be assured that the electrical integrity of the usage will be the typical top quality product produced by the Nexus range. The Nexus range of electrical switches and sockets are produced by BG which is one of the best United Kingdom manufacturers of electrical goods in the World with a history that goes back a long way. It is this vast experience that has produced such a fine range of electrical equipment for installation on a new build or a rewire of an existing building.

Lamp Post Electrical is also pleased to note the stainless steel range of Nexus electrical switches and sockets comes under the decorative range of electrical equipment and that this statement alone shows a change that has occurred over the past few years in the field of electrical fittings. The change to decorative fittings has come about with the ability to make metal clad switches and sockets securely and safely without any fear of electrocution or electrical shock. Up until this time the amount of decorative switches and sockets in comparison to the standard safety insulated switch or socket was very small, but now there is a vast array of electrical decorative fittings and there are very many more options open to the end user. Invariably in time gone by the only times electrical switches were changed was on a rewire operation but now Lamp Post Electrical notes that it is quite usual for a change of all electrical switches and sockets to be made throughout the building on a purely decorative or design change in the appearance of the building. This is driven heavily by interior design magazines and TV.

Lamp Post Electrical is delighted with the appearance of the Nexus Stainless Steel range of equipment, which has a sleek finish with a very slim stainless cover with rounded corners. All switches are of the typical metal faced, insulated rocker design but the rocker is a gently curved design, which looks good and operates efficiently and provides no opportunity of any ligature. The advantage of this range is that it can be used in a residential or commercial operation and will look equally good in both. Lamp Post Electrical – http://www.lamppostelectrical.co.uk – is pleased to note that at the present time the price of this range of electrical fittings is very low and the prices for a complete change of electrical switches and sockets throughout a property is quite affordable.

MK Electric Gives The Ultimate Consumer Unit Design

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies have built an excellent business by supplying first class electrical equipment, which will completely fit their customers requirements. This has been carried out by using manufacturers who not only supply excellent quality products but also supply good technical advice on the product and its usage. MK Electric is one supplier that fits all these requirements and they are able to supply some of the best consumer units on the market to the exact specification required by the customer.

One example is a standard consumer unit in the MK Electric range which is supplied by Lamp Post Electrical Supplies and this is the MK K7666SP 17th edition consumer unit with basically a 16 way dual RCD (Residual Current Device) set up. This unit can easily be supplied as a single consumer unit with MCB (Mini Circuit Breakers) chosen by the electrician or Lamp Post and MK can supply the advice for the complete specification. If Lamp Post are given the specification MK will design the consumer unit to meet that specification and build it especially within the day for supply by Lamp Post Electrical Supplies the next day. The consumer unit normally requires tailoring to the needs of each individual residence and whilst there are ways in which this can be done just to cover the regulations there are a great number of advantages in setting the systems so that they meet the users exact requirements.

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies can supply excellent advice along with a full range of equipment in the MK Electric Consumer unit range and they are proud to represent one of the major manufacturers of the electrical protection and power distribution systems. The MK K7666SP 17th edition consumer unit is a basic unit but the consumer unit can be used as a standard system with a dual RCD protection system covering a full range of MCBs but it is often better if some of the outlets are covered in different ways and Lamp Post Electrical Supplies can assist with all the requirements.

There is a superb range of MK Electric RCD systems that range from block units to individual circuit units. There are a range of RCBO units which usually control just one circuit. This is ideal for consumer units where the household or office want total protection but it really is essential for the individual circuits, which provide power to the safety or certain essential services. This is usually circuits such as fire and burglar alarms and equipment like freezers and refrigerators, which require secure power supplies wherever possible. There are RCBOs which can turn off with say a power cut and not turn back on when power is restored but in most cases these should be avoided in favour of the type that restore power to the circuit when power returns. There is also a range of DIN rail mounted time switches that can be fitted to meet specific remote power requirements.

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies is pleased to supply any of the MK range and if the item is not on the web site an email or a telephone call will resolve the problem.

Metal Black Nickel Electrical Sockets And Switches For A Perfect Finish

Electrical Counter is pleased to promote the BG Nexus range of electrical sockets and switches for use both in the house and in the office or work place. The company is particularly pleased to be able to stock a complete range of fittings than cover virtually every eventuality of usage. The BG Nexus range has been developed to provide a very attractive design finish that will stand out most impressively when fitted into the décor of the building. The Metal Black Nickel finish is a very subtle colour and whilst distinctive it is not an “In your face” finish and will tone into not only a modern finished building but will not be wasted in less contemporary surroundings. The finish of all the metal fascia’s is such that they are a polished smooth surface which gives very clean lines and simple finish and they all match a basic standard design with no sharp edges but all rounded corners and sides.

Electrical Counter notes that the system is an ideal one to be used where there is a requirement to keep the whole place clean and within the bounds. The materials of the metal surface are such that they retain their initial properties over a long period and do not deteriorate with time. They are simple and when cleaned with bacterial wipes will remove all bugs that may be transferred to them and they pick up less bugs in the first place as the smooth surface is less attractive to their collection. This makes them ideal for usage in the kitchen or office and they are quite acceptable in places where there is a serious chance of bug and disease transfer.

The full BG range of switches and sockets have allowed the BG Nexus brand to become a major range of products and Electrical Counter is delighted to be able to stock the full range available for delivery on an immediate call off basis. The Metal Black Nickel range is at present a most attractive range not only because of their design but also because of their price. At present Electrical Counter is pleased to be able to offer the whole range at vastly discounted prices, which makes their usage competitive with some of the cheapest models on sale. Some typical examples show the Metal Black Nickel dimmer switch on sale at £9.99 instead of the usual £31.51 whilst the simple Black Nickel light switch is on sale for £2.91 against a usual price of £14.41. The overall cost of the sockets and switches being in the range 25% to 33% of the original cost.

Electrical Counter have an excellent web site in which all the different ranges of Nexus metal switches can be seen and if there are any further queries the experience of a well trained staff is available by telephone to answer any queries. Electrical Counter pride themselves on the fact that whilst the internet warehouse provides good quality materials at cheap prices it has also retained the experience essential to run this business and to make sure that it is available to company employee and customer alike.

Stainless Steel Gets Switched On With The Electrical Counter

The market for electrical switches and sockets grows larger each day and it is now a possible to change the appearance of the electrical service systems within a house or office regularly without breaking the bank. Electrical Counter has developed a full market range of switches and sockets to meet what is likely to be an ever increasing market place. The company has developed their Internet marketing system to be able to supply the fullest range of electrical equipment at a moment’s notice off the shelf and Electrical Counter is pleased to be able to meet almost all requirements at a time to suit the customer. The electrical market demands instant attention with orders required tomorrow and quality of the highest order and safety standards to match. Electrical Counter can deal with all of these as a matter of routine and has also been able to develop prices which match any company and are usually cheaper. Some of the latest prices for switches and sockets are only 30% of what they were a short time ago.

The Stainless Steel range is one of the ranges that have gained from this reduction in prices and Electrical Counter is pleased to have been able to negotiate with their manufacturer’s rates, which are a great advantage to the industry, the customer and the supplier. The stainless steel ranges are quite interesting and do give a completely new outlook on the design and installation of the electrical service systems. The stainless can be of a brushed steel type of finish which looks good and lasts particularly well, it handles well and the fitting is easy and there is even a range of screwless face plates which have nothing to break the face plate but the rounded switch toggle. There is also stainless steel of a semi polished or plain finish, which again look good and provide a different appearance. The brushed steel switches are particularly good for their resilience as they will last for a long time without any deterioration. The attributes of stainless steel are many and obvious and now metals can be used safely in switches and sockets the options are endless.

Electrical Counter considers the stainless steel range as ideal for the office and workplace as the finished effect goes particularly well with the latest designs of the modern office. The Nexus Metal switches and sockets fit well into the dado rail system which allows the service to be placed just where required for easy access and shortest cable links. Appearance is everything these days and the quickest way to change the appearance in a building is to change the fitments that are present. The electrical service fitments from switches and sockets to data and telephone points are easy to change and these will make a great deal of difference to the overall view of the building. No decorating is required and the whole operation will be carried out in a very limited time but the results can be present for years to come.

The Electrical Counter Promote The Advantages Of Elnur Storage Heaters

The Electrical Counter have built up an excellent range of products to be supplied directly via the internet from their excellent web site, the base of the business is as the name suggests, anything that the electrical trade might require usually, off the shelf. If the product required is not obvious on the web site then an excellent call service will establish whether and when it can be delivered. This is certainly the case with the Elnur Storage Heaters, which The Electrical Counter company is very pleased to supply from its standard in-stock store. This resurgent business in storage heaters has developed because of the inspired development of the latest Elnur Storage Heaters. These Elnur Storage Heaters are now very efficient in energy usage from a low cost electrical source and they come in a range of sizes from 1.7KW to 3.4 KW power rating and also in a range of manual or automatic controls.

The Elnur Storage Heaters are of a superb slim line design that fit very well in any standard room and the small size of the units mean that they do not take up the whole of the wall space. The controls are easily accessible and the units acne work as a stand-alone unit or fixed to link in with other storage heaters as part of a fully controlled central heating system. The Electrical Counter is delighted with the quality of the Storage Heaters and the complete range of manual and automatic units that are available which enable the installer such a wide range of options. The safety systems are such that the Storage Heaters have automatic safety power cut outs when the grills, where the heat is released, are covered with clothes or other items. The Electrical Counter supply Storage Heaters where there is an automatic control system on the heat input to the heat sink so that just the right amount of heat is input into the storage heater for later usage. Elnur have developed the range of Storage Heaters to meet all occasions and the sophistication levels are now so good that they heat input on the best units is controlled so that it takes account of the weather so that heat is not wasted in periods of warm weather or left short in periods of excessive cold. If this is added to a full central control system the maximum flexibility in heating control is possible, Hyco Water Heaters are also another great addition to the system in order to maximise your homes overall efficiency.

The Electrical Counter is pleased to note that these units fit extremely well in conditions where there is a surfeit of electrical power from a solar panel system where the daytime electricity is basically the property of the householder during the day and hence is free.

The market is ever increasing and the boiler fuel systems are not only suffering price rises from the energy suppliers but things like gas checks are now advised annually for house owners and are imposed by law on the house rental business. The Electrical Counter notes that the costs of each system when all the equipment costs, energy costs and service costs are taken into account are very close. The Electrical Counter welcomes any enquiries on the use of Elnur Storage Heaters.
