Klein® Tools Expands Its Test & Measurement Accessories Line with Universal Premium Silicone Test Lead Set

Silicone-insulated leads perform better in extreme temperatures

June 24, 2014 (Lincolnshire, IL) - Klein Tools (http://www.kleintools.com), for professionals since 1857, expands its Test & Measurement accessories product line with a new Universal Premium Silicone Test Lead Set. These silicone-insulated test leads withstand more extreme temperatures - up to 2X the operating temperature range - than PVC test leads. In addition, the more durable banana plug and probe strain reliefs as well as the built-in wear indicator on probe wires, make these leads tougher and more reliable than regular test lead.


"With the frigid temperatures we have experienced over the past few seasons, a more resilient test lead set is a requirement in any tradesmans tool bag," states Sean OFlaherty, senior product manager of Test & Measurement at Klein Tools. "By utilizing Kleins new Universal Premium Silicone Test Lead Set, with twice the operating temperature range of PVC test leads, you can get the job done in environments with extreme temperatures, particularly when working outdoors in severely cold weather."

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.
