Pleora Technologies Expands Corporate Headquarters and Web Presence

Pleora Technologies, a leader in industrial video connectivity, has expanded its corporate headquarters and enhanced its web site to help serve the company's growing global customer base. Pleora's new headquarters is the company's most recent business expansion.

Pleora Technologies, a leader in industrial video connectivity, today announced that it is expanding its corporate headquarters and enhancing its web site to help serve the company's growing global customer base.


"Our business continues to grow at a rapid rate, with global systems and camera manufacturers deploying our video interface products in a widening range of end-applications," said George Chamberlain, President of Pleora Technologies. "We are now preparing for our next stage of growth, with a new headquarters and web site that reflects our broadening product portfolio. Expanding Pleora's team in Ottawa, and making it easier to access our online product information and resources, will ensure we continue to deliver innovative end-to-end solutions that help our customers shorten time-to-market, reduce risk, and lower costs."

Since being founded in 2000, Pleora has grown its Ottawa operations to approximately 55 staff. Relocating its corporate headquarters to 340 Terry Fox Drive, Pleora now occupies 15,000 square feet; an increase of approximately 30 percent compared with its previous location at 359 Terry Fox Drive. Pleora plans to lease an additional 7,500 square feet over the next five years, allowing the company to continue to grow its Ottawa-based engineering, support, sales, marketing and corporate staff.

Pleora's new headquarters is the company's most recent business expansion, following the opening of a Denmark sales office serving Europe and the Middle East, and the addition of a dedicated sales engineer in China. The company's Gigabit Ethernet (GigE)-based video interface products - including external frame grabbers and embedded hardware - are deployed globally in manufacturing, medical, defense, security and transportation applications that require high-speed, uncompressed video for real-time analysis.

Pleora's recently relaunched corporate web site, www.pleora.com, helps system and camera manufacturers more easily find the right product for their application requirements, and access engineering expertise and resources.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
