G1 SCBA Breathing Apparatus

The new, G1 SCBA is a revolutionary, self-contained, breathing apparatus, that when worn by first responders, provides breathable air in structure fires and other immediately dangerous to life or health (IDLH) atmospheres. The G1 SCBA includes several patent pending enhanced safety features such as: a “central power” feature that charges the entire unit from a single battery; 360-degree “buddy lights” that provide visible indicators of critical air supply data from any angle; and improved voice amplification communications. By eliminating electronics from the face piece and integrating them into other parts of the system, the cost of the face piece is significantly reduced, allowing it to be personal-issue. The rest of the highly advanced system can be shared by firefighters between shifts. Built with integrated technology for future expansion, the G1 SCBA includes Bluetooth, RFID and more.

Demag V-type Crane

The Demag V-type Crane is an overhead traveling bridge crane. This is a machine that is used for transporting heavy loads in the vertical and horizontal directions in production bays and outside areas. The V-type Crane physically supports workers by the use of motors and facilitates the handling of heavy and sensitive goods. This overhead traveling crane is designed like a bridge and runs on travel wheels on two, crane runways. Virtually all sectors of trade and industry use overhead traveling cranes to stage and handle goods as well as to supply companies and, ultimately, the population. The goal of the team was to take a completely fresh approach to the product and design a high-performance crane that helps the operator to work safely, efficiently and precisely with a lower weight and longer service life.

The maintenance-free, lithium-ion battery saves weight and allows a compact construction style. The resource-conserving eco-efficiency mode ensures sustainable and economical operation, increasing the battery run time by around 40 percent. The Kärcher color-coding arranges the control elements and increases user safety.

The MINI Z system from AS&E is the world’s first, handheld, Z Backscatter X-ray imaging system. It provides effective detection of organic threats, contraband and explosives for public safety; customs and border enforcement; and security officials. The compact, single-sided device is used to scan objects in hard-to-reach areas to screen items ranging from suspicious bags—to walls, furniture, small boats, aircraft, vehicle tires and car interiors. The MINI Z uses the same technology found in top-selling X-ray inspection systems in vehicles—yet has been miniaturized for handheld use. Using AS&E’s signature Z Backscatter technology, the MINI Z system produces a real-time image of the scan target, highlighting organic materials that other X-ray systems can miss.
