Analog Megohmmeter from BD Loops
BD Loops now offers its megohmmeter in an affordable analog
option designed with installers in mind. A megohmmeter
is the only meter than can test for the most common loop
issue − a nick in the insulation causing the loop to short to
ground. This analog megohmmeter gives installers more
information than the more common light-up ones. Its pin will
point to the megohm reading, giving a number to track and
monitor to determine if the loop is shorting to ground.
Atlanta Drive Systems Offers Integrated Direct-Mount Racks
Atlanta Drive Systems offers a range of integrated
racks that mount directly to most standard linear guide
rails, eliminating the need for additional machining
and alignment, thus saving time and money. Compact,
performance-optimized designs can be easily achieved
with these racks.
Electricity Generating Systems From Energy Intelligence
Energy Intelligence has developed technology that
generates clean energy at high-traffic locations, such as
parking garages and toll booths, from the motion of vehicles.
The ultra-compact system lays flat on top of the road where
vehicles are required to slow down. When vehicles drive
over it, they compress embedded hydraulic channels,
generating electricity to power nearby equipment such as
lights, cameras, displays and gates. The system also is smart:
With embedded sensors and wireless controls, it provides
site managers with energy data, as well as insights about
traffic patterns and vehicles types.
FlareAlert Battery-Powered Emergency LED Beacon Kits
FlareAlert introduces its Emergency LED Beacon Kits, which are
designed for professional firefighters, law enforcement, and military,
as well as personal emergency use. Unlike incendiary strike flares,
These beacons are personally and environmentally safe to use.
Fujitsu Releases Ultra-Low-Profile Thermal Printer Series
Fujitsu Components America has released one of its smallest 24V
thermal printer mechanism series, the FTP-6xGMCL. The
printers are targeted to OEMs developing
compact self-service solutions for industrial,
retail and transportation industries. They
are ideal for generating receipts, tickets
or labels in space-restricted, self-service
applications, such as ATMs and POS systems.
ICES Launches Advanced Intelligent Camera Technology
Imperial Civil Enforcement Solutions has launched a major
advance for automatically identifying and recording parking
contraventions. ScanSmarti capitalizes on the company’s
Rialto software and the smartphone’s integrated camera
to enable complete streets or carparks to be scanned by
a patrolling enforcement officer. There’s no need to enter
registration numbers individually and manually. It benefits
from a real-time interface with the “back office” processing
system and any cashless parking system.
Linear Motion Stages from Primatics
The PCL65 Series from Primatics are value-priced, high-precision linear
motion stages. A backlash-free, precision-ground, ball-screw
drivetrain provides precise positioning over travels from
50 to 600mm. Its NEMA23 motor mount supports
common servo or stepper motors. The series is designed
for applications such as precision assembly, inspection
and material handling. They can be used individually or
directly stacked for XY configurations.
