Stop traveling on site for support! Let’s stay Cosy!

Stop traveling on site for support! Let’s stay Cosy!

The eWON Cosy is an industrial VPN router designed to offer easy remote access, across the Internet, to machines and installations on customer sites or in the field. With the eWON Cosy, OEMs and System Integrators can troubleshoot machines remotely without going on site, drastically reducing support costs.

Why eWON Cosy is your best choice for Remote Access?

FIREWALL FRIENDLY
The eWON Cosy uses an outbound connection across the factory LAN (HTTPS port 443 or UDP 1194). This makes the eWON Cosy to be isolated from Internet by working with private IP address,...

Immediate Quantification of Gas Leaks

Immediate Quantification of Gas Leaks

FLIR Systems announces new Quantitative Optical Gas Imaging (qOGI) technology, developed in conjunction with Providence Photonics, that was designed to work exclusively with its GF-Series cameras. qOGI represents a major advance in the world of optical gas imaging because it eliminates the need for secondary sampling devices to quantify gas emissions.

Using a Providence Photonics’ QL320™ in conjunction with a FLIR GFx320 or FLIR GF320 camera, surveyors can now measure mass leak rates (lb/h or g/h) or volumetric leak rates (cc/min or L/min) for most hydrocarbons.

Interchangeable Lens OGI Cameras Enhance Leak Detection

Interchangeable Lens OGI Cameras Enhance Leak Detection

FLIR Systems GF-series Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras are now available with interchangeable 24-degree, 14.5-degree and 6-degree lenses. This new flexibility has been introduced to maximise the gas leak finding capabilities of these popular cameras. Available as standard on all new GF320 Series and other related cameras, all existing GF Series OGI cameras returned to FLIR systems for general maintenance can be retrofitted with the interchangeable lens capability free of charge.

Create Compliant, Safe & Efficient Workplaces

Create Compliant, Safe & Efficient Workplaces

Use durable pipe markers, safety signs, CLP-labels and area marking from BRADY. Align with International Directives and national legislation, prevent accidents by communicating important safety information when and where co-workers need to see it, and identify areas in line with 5S and lean manufacturing for more efficiency.

Avoid collisions between pedestrians, forklifts and other vehicles by clearly marking traffic lanes. Let employees and first responders know which pipes or chemical containers have a dangerous content and implement prohibition, warning, mandatory, evacuation and fire...

Rotary Pressure Valve

Rotary Pressure Valve

The Rotary Pressure Valve is a variant of the Rotary Valve and is designed for process applications where the treated product is particularly aggressive, not compatible with the material used for the construction of the sealing element (seal) in the presence of solvents during the cycle or during the wash cycle (CIP / SIP).

The valve is made of a monoblock body where the interceptor element is held in place thanks to suitable plastic material holders (FDA), which keep the rotor centered on the valve body.

This variant is not different from the main features of the Rotary Valve as,...

Tailored Asset & Component Labels

Tailored Asset & Component Labels

Asset and component traceability, from production to maintenance and even spare part service contracts, becomes easier because more information can be printed in a legible way on durable labels. This can also result in better compliance with legal requirements such as UL certification, safety standards and environmental responsibilities. 

Brady’s asset and component labels can be created with the highest flexibility.
This includes:
-    small prints of text in every language, symbols and special characters
-    improved serialisation...

16 Visuals to Increase Safety and Efficiency

16 Visuals to Increase Safety and Efficiency

Imagine a world without any sign and think about how quickly we would get lost, how chaotic traffic would become, how much time you would lose, and how many accidents  this would result in. Signalling makes safe and efficient, also in the workplace.

Did you know 75% of knowledge is gained through visuals?

Signalling can help you to:

• prevent accidents

• gain time

• be compliant with legislation

• quickly follow up on safety audits

• match industry best practices

• visualise machine operating instructions
