Molex has worked with MB Connect Line GmbH to realise a new platform for remote access, monitoring and predictive maintenance: it is a cloud-based communication channel. Data transparency is getting increasingly important, and this platform adds communications and networking to the production process, offering machine and system builders’ capabilities designed to enable real-time condition monitoring and predictive maintenance, supporting the drive towards smarter machines and factories.
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.

FLIR Systems High Sensitivity Mode (HSM) is a technological innovation to enhance the leak detection performance of their GF-Series optical gas imaging cameras. FLIR GF Series OGI camera's offer quick, non-contact remote measurement of gas leaks in real time.
Using the high sensitivity mode even the smallest of gas leaks can be spotted.

Paper slitting machines from American machine builder JSI are well-connected indeed. By using HMS technology, JSI can remotely access and control the machine via the internet and also enable wired and wireless communication between different parts of the machine. All this allows JSI to offer an even more competitive and connected machine.
· Operators avoid contact with sharp slitter blades
· Reduced downtime due to blade changes
· Reduced service costs as service can be done remotely
· Maximized blade life through wear...
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.
Parker Hannifin Corporation's Electronic Controls Business Unit can now meet the needs of mobile machinery applications with new functional safety controllers. As well as offering high levels of robustness and straightforward system integration, the new RISE (SP) certified IQAN-MC4xFS controllers have been developed to provide a more cost-effective way of meeting the safety standards required for heavy mobile machinery. Typical applications include reach stackers, aerial platforms, refuse truck...
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.
- small prints of text in every language, symbols and special characters
- improved serialisation...
Slips, trips and falls can result both in fatal and non-fatal workplace accidents and they are one of the most frequently occurring accident types. 36% of EU companies acknowledge an increased risk of slips, trips and falls in their workplace according to EU-OSHA. To decrease the risk, we propose a number of reliable and highly visible safety identification solutions.
Floor marking: easily identify safe walking routes, obstacles and hazardous areas in the workplace. Safety signs: a simple safety sign can prevent costly workplace accidents if it is clearly visible, draws attention...
