Accelix is an open cloud platform that connects maintenance software, equipment, and critical plant systems. It
integrates the company's portfolio of wireless tools and
condition-monitoring sensors with the eMaint CMMS
and shares information with enterprise solutions of
choice. The platform reportedly will aid maintenance
teams access the benefit of connected equipment, tools,
measurement data, and software systems by eliminating
common barriers many users face in implementing a
comprehensive, affordable reliability program.
A line of gear motors based on the company's
Sigma-7 servo motors provides precise servo
motion to a wider variety of automation applications, especially to uses that require high torque
at low output speeds. A new set of gearheads is
designed to pair precisely with every servo motor
in the line, creating solutions from 50 W to 15 kW.
Five gear ratios are available, from 3/1 to 50/1.

The Allen-Bradley Guardmaster Lifeline 5 cable-pull switch is a solid-state, E-stop
that uses a microprocessor-based technology. The switch's solid-state operation provides
an electronic, rope-monitoring system to compensate for thermal expansion and cable
sag. The switch provides constant access to the E-stop function, stopping a machine
hazard with a pull of the attached cable. LED indicators assist in cable tensioning for
precise setup while providing switch status and diagnostics during operation.
