Pneumatic Safety Panel
The Vertiguard Automated Barrier Panel from Frommelt Safety is a bottom-up pneumatic unit that provides physical separation between machine operators and manufacturing processes. An alternative to light curtains or area scanners, it’s suited for small interaction points with single or double robotic cells, part assembly and conveyor openings. The company recently expanded the panels to a standard size of 110” wide and 96” tall.
Heat Trace Cable For Long Pipelines
Chromalox’s Series Long Line Heat Trace Cable (SLL) is suited to extremely long pipelines where freeze protection and viscosity maintenance are major concerns. Capable of withstanding continuous exposure to temperatures up to 450 F, the product can be used for continuous circuit lengths up to 7000 feet, powered from a single source with output ranges up to 12 w/ft and voltages from 120 V to 600 V.
Emergency Lighting Inverter
The EON™ Model EL3 from Controlled Power Company is a centralized emergency lighting inverter available in 10 kW – 33 kW three-phase sizes. The self-testing, self-diagnostic inverter is UL 924-listed and meets NFPA 101, NFPA 111, NEC and IBC requirements. Key options include output distribution with either monitored or unmonitored circuit breakers, and remote communications via BACnet, Ethernet, MODBUS TCP or MODBUS RS485.

iPad Vibration Analysis With Temperature Info
GTI Spindle Technology, developer and creator of the iPad Vibration Analyzer, has integrated NODE THERMA technology into its VibePro and iVibraMeter applications. NODE THERMA is a Bluetooth temperature sensor that communicates wirelessly to the iPad Vibration Analyzer. VibePro provides vibration analysis tools on the iPad and now includes temperature readings. iVibraMeter allows technicians to certify machines, and now temperature is factored into that certification.

Shaft Grounding For Hazardous Gas Environments
According to Inpro/Seal, its CDR® XP is the only ATEX Certified shaft grounding solution for medium-voltage motors in hazardous gas environments. The solution safely diverts harmful shaft currents away from the bearings to ground, utilizing proprietary conductive filaments to provide a low-impedance path. The CDR XP is designed for use on ball-bearing and sleeve-bearing medium-voltage motors and is certified as a standalone device, eliminating the need to re-test for each motor configuration.

High-Efficiency Diesel-Drive Welders
Lincoln Electric’s high-efficiency Classic® 300 HE and SAE-300® HE diesel-engine drive welders combine the performance of traditional, pure DC generators with a rugged, robust design. According to the company, the units’ pure DC- generator welding output provides precise arc control for stick, TIG, MIG, flux-cored and gouging processes in demanding code applications. Both models deliver 3000 total watts of AC power from a 120V or 240V duplex receptacle.
