Troubleshooting process loops in potentially explosive atmospheres

Tracking down problems within a process loop can be a difficult challenge in the best of environments.

Curb explosive potential with intrinsically safe tools

For those who work in industries where flammable materials are present—such as petrochemical and pharmaceutical plants, oil platforms, refineries, pipelines, and mining—the potential for an explosion is a daily reality

Test system takes measurement data from test tools to smart phones and the cloud

The largest suite of connected test tools in the world

Two-gas detection with one small, reliable monitor

New lightweight two-gas monitor offers more accurate alarms and minimizes maintenance with a two-year runtime.

How infrared inspection can enhance safety

By allowing technicians to effectively scan equipment, structures, and processes from a longer distance, without the need to make contact with the object being inspected, thermal imagers can help reduce exposure to hazards and in some cases eliminate the need to secure a hot work permit. This is especially helpful for electrical, process control, and building inspection applications.

Guide to digital multimeter safety

In a recent survey, more than 30% of electricians admitted to not using test tools accurately rated for their work environment. It’s the cold truth that a well-built digital multimeter will perform better in demanding conditions than a second-tier model. Not only will a top-tier tool be able to stand up to your work environment, but it will help keep you safe.
