External High-speed Backstop Clutch Tsubaki launched the BRUS Se- ries, an exter- nal high-speed backstop clutch line designed to replace the Falk BIF model back- stops, the com- pany reported. The line uses a unique felt ring seal and labyrinth body-seal design to prevent grease leaking or ingress of contaminants. The cam design provides non-rollover protection and lift-off opera- tion to ensure a low operating temperature and a long life, the company reported. The torque arm is designed to allow for reuse during maintenance. Remote Control for Hoists J.D. Neuhaus unveiled three remote-control solutions, the RC-X, RC-S, and RC-SP, each comprised of a transmitter and receiver and designed for integration with the company's air hoist or crane solutions. All components are housed in compact, shock-resistant glass-reinforced plastic casing rated at protection class IP65. A breathable mem- brane guides condensation away from the interior to the exterior. The receiver can be mounted directly on the hoist or the trolley, or individually at site. The design of the re- ceiver makes it suitable for hoists with low carrying capacity. The RC-X is designed for use in potentially explosive environments rated up to ATEX zone 2/22. UV-enhanced LED Lighting Matrix Design Group announced UVision, which combines LED and safe-spectrum UV in a mine-duty lighting system that delivers 50% brighter lighting and better illuminates refl ective materials, the com- pany reported. When installed on mobile equipment, UVision provides the operator with additional peripheral and enhanced direct illumination, the company report- ed. The lights fi t standard round enclo- sures. UVision can be integrated with machine control systems to provide en- hanced functionality, like automatic red reverse lighting, for about the same cost as traditional LED lights.
