3 Solutions to Increase Maintenance Safety & Efficiency

3 Solutions to Increase Maintenance Safety & Efficiency

10-15% of fatal workplace accidents occur during maintenance operations according to EU-OSHA. Occupational diseases and health problems such as asbestosis, cancer, hearing problems and musculoskeletal disorders are also more prevalent among workers involved in maintenance activities. Brady proposes 3 solutions to help make maintenance safer and more efficient.

Professional safety printers: print self-adhesive safety signs and instructional labels and apply them to machinery before they are serviced. Optimally...

See with more sensitivity from farther away

See with more sensitivity from farther away

Flir System cooled midwave infrared (MWIR) cameras have long held a tactical advantage over uncooled longwave infrared (LWIR) cameras in many airborne and ground-based missions.

While cooled MWIR cameras are highly sensitive, they are also larger, heavier, require more power, and cost more than uncooled LWIR cameras. Recent advancements in High Operating Temperature (HOT) MWIR technology open up new possibilities.

Safeguarding Staff from Carbon Monoxide Leaks

Safeguarding Staff from Carbon Monoxide Leaks

The FLIR GF346 Optical Gas Imaging Camera is designed to detect even the smallest Carbon Monoxide (CO) leaks. Able to scan large areas rapidly and pinpoint leaks in real time, the GF346 is ideal for monitoring plants where it is difficult to reach components with contact measurement tools such as gas sniffers. Using a FLIR GF346 safeguards personnel from the dangers of Carbon Monoxide poisoning, reduces repair downtime and provides verification of the process. And above all it is exceptionally safe, allowing potentially dangerous...

Sensata Launches New Low Noise Solid State Relays

Sensata Launches New Low Noise Solid State Relays

Sensata Technologies announced the availability of the new Low Noise (LN) series of panel mounted solid state relays designed for use in a wide range of consumer and industrial systems and products where precise power control, long life, reliability and reduced levels of electromagnetic noise are required.

Instead of using moving components as mechanical power relays do, solid state relays rely on silicon-controlled rectifier technology which allows SSRs to provide quieter operation (no clicking), longer life, as well as more precise switching control.
