Hornet 1LED 12V ATEX is the solution when you need to use the lowest available voltage.
Enerpac has introduced the SafeT Torque Lock, an innovative and user-friendly safety tool that transforms Enerpac square drive torque wrenches allowing hands-free bolting operation. The SafeT Torque Lock improves worker safety by minimising exposure to pinch points and high-pressure hydraulic connections. It can also be used in any orientation including inverted positions, thus reducing the possibility of tool slippage and operator fatigue.
WorkSpace, a division of IT specialists, Emtec Corporation, has just launched the WorkSafe Safe Spacer™ wearable social distance monitor. The ground-breaking device, which has been developed in conjunction with IK Multimedia, helps users maintain a safe social distance in the workplace and alerts wearers when other units come within two metres with light, vibration and sound.
In April 2020, Devon-based company Emtec, began looking at solutions to get people safely back to work during the pandemic. “That’s why we decided to partner with IK Multimedia’s decades of expertise in electronic and wireless product development in the creation of the Safe Spacer™,” comments Emtec’s Co-Founder and CEO, Martin Wedge.
Webtec has a developed a new run-time meter which is ideal for construction and agricultural machinery where specialist hydraulic attachments can be centrally owned and rented on a ‘time-used’ basis. The RFS200 also ensures that owners can conduct maintenance on a time-used basis, rather than machine hours, thus allowing for more astute and cost-effective management of hydraulic system health.
Atexxo Manufacturing has released an Apple iPhone 11 which is suitable for use in Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous locations. The explosion proof iPhones are originally manufactured by Apple then converted and certified according to ATEX and IECEx by Atexxo Manufacturing. This makes the ATEX and IECEx smartphones suited for safe use in gas/vapour Zone 1 and zone 2 hazardous areas. Sim-card can be installed by the end-user themselves.
Global LED lighting specialist Glamox has published a new online application guide for offshore wind installations, as well as a new brochure for the offshore wind energy sector.
Offshore wind energy will continue to play a key role in energy transition and the world’s ongoing journey to Net Zero. Many oil & gas companies and their contractors are already embracing offshore wind and the benefits it can provide.
Clear communications at any times is particularly important for lone workers in hazardous areas. To secure their safety and optimal working conditions ECOM Instruments, a Pepperl+Fuchs brand, offers a wireless Bluetooth remote speaker microphone with an operating time up to 78 hours beside the wired RSM-Ex 01.
The RSM-Ex 01 BT Z0 comes with an IP65/67 rating and a built-in noise reduction function. It produces clear, high-volume audio up to 103 dB. The remote speaker microphone is extremely robust and yet very flat and ergonomic to wear on the body. It is intuitive and easy to use, even when wearing gloves. The built-in BT Interface allows a connection to industrial BT devices like Radios, Tablets and Smartphones, and of course to current and future ECOM products.
