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,...

High Sensitivity Gas Leak Visualisation

High Sensitivity Gas Leak Visualisation

FLIR Systems GFx320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera offers quick, non-contact measurement of gas leaks in real time. Using its unique High Sensitivity Mode the camera is able to set a new superior standard for gas leak detection performance. High Sensitivity Mode is based upon an image subtraction video processing technique that effectively enhances the thermal sensitivity of the camera. The HSM feature subtracts a percentage of individual pixel signals from frames in the video stream from the subsequent frames, thus enhancing the differences between frames, which make leaks stand out more clearly...

Always connected, always sharp

Always connected, always sharp

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.

Main benefits:
· 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...

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...

Durably Identify Pipes in Any Facility Anywhere

Durably Identify Pipes in Any Facility Anywhere

Clearly visible and legible pipe markers that indicate pipe contents and flow direction can increase efficiency for maintenance crews in finding the pipes that need servicing and the valves they need to shut down. Next to increasing efficiency, pipe markers help to avoid accidents by warning employees, contractors and first responders for dangerous pipe contents.  Brady’s pipe markers are offered in any colour combination to achieve compliance with every plant's pipe marking standard. Industries can choose the quality level they need, the colours, messages and symbols to be printed on the...

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,...
