As the global market for wearable devices and particularly smart watches grows dramatically, Gore is continually developing advanced venting solutions to give your wearable technology the competitive edge. The new PE14 (Black) and PE15 (White) 5 bar Pressure Vents are the latest examples of that.
As you integrate more microphones, speakers and high-density batteries to your wearables, you face increased challenges with pressure equalization. These new pressure vents address that challenge head on with unparalleled airflow performance to ensure the reliability of your devices.
DEVELOP MORE RELIABLE 5 BAR MOBILE DEVICES WITH ALL THESE ADVANTAGES
Product Models PE14 and PE15 provide:
- UNPARALLELED AIRFLOW PERFORMANCE
- PE14 (Black): 175 ml/min/cm² @ 0.07 bar minimum airflow target
- PE15 (White): 235 ml/min/cm² @ 0.07 bar minimum airflow target
When a stealth pressure vent hole is needed, PE14 Pressure Vent offers 5 bar water resistance capability with black color membrane. When high airflow is critical in your design, you profit from higher airflow and design flexibility with PE15. That’s something other competitors don’t provide.
- DEEPER IMMERSION PROTECTION
Wearable devices can be protected from water in depths of 50 meters for 10 minutes.
- INDUSTRY LEADER
No company has been trusted more than Gore to supply microphones and pressure venting products for mobile electronics supply chains. With billions of these components sold, we have an unmatched track record for high quality supply chain solutions and superior technical service.
