H2gO Water Purifier
Aqua Research’s H2gO Purifier is a handheld, 3-ounce device that makes water safe to drink with only 2 button clicks. The purifier never needs replacement parts and was designed for extreme environments. The water treatment device is ideal for campers, travelers, and natural disasters. For a limited time, the water purifier is also available at the company’s Indiegogo campaign.
According to the World Health Organization, over 3.4 million people die each year from waterborne disease. Water disinfection is one of the most effective interventions to save lives, but a large proportion of people in poor economies stop disinfecting due to complexity and on-going cost. In contrast, the H2gO Purifier is sustainable even for people at the poverty line because it is both simple to use and free to operate.
The H2gO Purifier works by converting a few grains of common salt to a powerful disinfecting solution in a matter of seconds. It treats 1 to 20 liters of water at a time. It’s driven by a cell phone battery that can be charged by the integrated solar panel or USB, able to treat 300 liters of water per charge. Only one hour of sunlight makes over 1 gallon of safe water. There is even an LED flashlight for night-time operation.

Select Fabricators, Inc.
Select-A-Shield RF EMI Shielded tents are used for everything from pre-compliance testing to secure communications. To assure shielding effectiveness during entry and exit, Select Fabricators, Inc. has developed a vestibule for its Select-A-Shield walk-in enclosures. With most walk-in enclosures, opening the door can immediately degrade shielding effectiveness resulting in possible data capture compromise or data corruption. With the addition of the Select-A-Shield vestibule, which is integral to the enclosure, the shielding environment is kept intact for consistent shielding performance.
In a typical 9’ wide, x 12’ length Select-A-Shield tent, the vestibule is situated in the right-hand front corner. 3’ x 4’, in size, the vestibule provides entry for personnel via a separate single door double magnet (patent pending) closure system which opens out. The vestibule has its own separate conductive floor, door,and inner walls apart from the tent itself which allows maximum isolation for continuous testing or examination. The door opening to the main compartment opens inwards, making entry and exit easier.
Select-A-Shield RF EMI shielded enclosures with vestibules typically include a white ESD liner and ventilation. “Ventilation is necessary when people occupy a RF EMI shielded tent”, stated Lynne Woodworth, chief development officer at SELECT, “SELECT’s fan and vent system is RF EMI shielded to preserve the shielding effectiveness of the structure. The white ESD liner not only protects against static, it also helps technicians read and record data against a neutral, brighter background.”
Select-A-Shield RF / EMI enclosures are constructed with RoHS compliant, durable, lightweight, Silver/Copper/Nickel, Nova Select fabric, SELECT’s proprietary highly conductive material. Shielding effectiveness for a vestibule measures -73 dB with both doors closed at 916 Mhz. A double wall RF EMI shielding tent with ESD liner yields an average SE of -78 dB average from 150 kHz to 18 GHz without the vestibule.
“We developed this US-based fabric to yield high conductivity for the widest range of applications,” said Woodworth. “We’ve done everything from die-cut parts to a shielded enclosure large enough to hold a tractor. The possibility to design shielding that assures RF EMI isolation from off-the shelf standard configurations to custom designs is what drives SELECT.”
Select-A-Shield RF EMI products are ideal for numerous applications including wireless device development and testing, secure communications, satellite communications testing and isolation, EMC pre-compliance, medical and aerospace equipment shielding, cellular and computer forensics, and RFID shielding for commercial and industrial settings. Because Select-A-Shield products can be customized to almost any size and option configuration, application suitability is endless.
