Worksurface PortalWorksurface Portal Makes "Dumb" Tables Smart

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. - The Wiremold Company has introduced a worksurface technology terminal that combines improved function and aesthetic appeal. The deQuorum™ Worksurface Portal is installed into existing conference tables, workstations, mobile teaming tables, or other worksurfaces. It makes "dumb" tables smart by providing ready access to power, voice, and data without the inconvenience of "pop-up" components or lids that must remain open during use.

The deQuorum Worksurface Portal offers ample space for electrical and communications connections and is designed so that wires and cables exit the device while the cover is closed and flush with the table. Sturdy, die cast cover and base provide extra durability and help ensure long service life. Covers are available in flat and contoured styles, including a recessed lid that accepts field-installed laminates or veneers. End-users may select from a variety of colors and finishes, including painting to match.  For more information visit

ACI Develops a low cost Enthalpy Transmitter

ACI Develops a low cost Enthalpy TransmitterACI has developed a low cost Enthalpy transmitter that converts a resistive type humidity sensor into a linear 2-wire, 4 to 40mA output signal. The current output will be proportional to a scale of 0 to 50 BTU’s and can be operated over a range of -40 to 140°F (40 to 60°C). The Enthalpy sensor is calibrated to the elevation of your choice. The Enthalpy transmitter uses a supply voltage of 24 to 36 VDC and has an accuracy of ± 1 BTU @ 77°F (25°C).

ACI uses an Advanced Ceramic Technology that enables the humidity sensor to recover fully from condensation and maintain its accuracy over a longer period of time than water-soluble polymer coated humidity sensors. All ACI enthalpy transmitters have a 2 year limited warranty.
