About 30% smaller than the company’s PolyVent Snap-Fit product family, the new PolyVent Compact Series is easier to integrate into even the smallest housings. It provides a higher level of protection for sensitive components like sensors, motors and control units, while offering reliable and rapid pressure equalization. The combination of protection and pressure equalization is due to an enhanced microporous GORE membrane that breathes to allow airflow, yet blocks entry of water and contaminants.

Only 14.3mm in diameter, the smaller vent has a low installed-height of only 3.45mm, making less external protrusion and less vulnerability to mechanical impacts or steam-jets. Often, no protective wall is needed, so housing design is simplified, development is less costly, and the enclosure more readily fits into the tightest under-hood spaces. The smaller total vent height (only 8.9mm) provides more flexibility in component layout, and facilitates heat transfer from printed circuit boards to the housing exterior.

The enhanced oleophobic GORE membrane design provides about 30% better WEP (Water Entry Pressure) resistance, yet with the same airflow and chemical resistance as the PolyVent Standard and High Temperature Series.
