Ultimate Comfort, Durability and Ease of Care
New garments offer features like underarm vents, nano fluid repellency technology and a flex waistband aim to meet the needs of today's transportation personnel.
T2TM Shirts and Tek2 Shirts and Trousers are engineered to meet the demands of today's working men and women. These garments include features to enhance performance and comfort.
The T2 Shirt features include: flex underarm vent which allows for body heat ventilation and increased mobility, comfort poly-cotton twill fabric that delivers lightweight, soft feel while maintaining durability and ease of care, nano moisture wicking technology to permanently pull perspiration away from your skin, and stitched in creases for a professional appearance. Long and short-sleeve styles are available in a variety of colors and it is also available in Ladies Choice patterns.
The Tek2 Shirt features include the flex underarm vent, nano fluid repellency technology, long and short sleeves and also extra-long shirt tails to keep shirts tucked in.
Tek2 Trousers features include a new covert waistband that provides up to 3 inches of additional room, double hook and eye waist closure to prevent waistband roll over, triple-stitched crotch to prevent seam separation, nano fluid repellency technology, durable poly-cotton stretch twill weave, and available in Ladies Choice patterns.
The Elbeco Transportation Catalog features a full complement of uniform quality shirts and trousers available to men and women who work within the public and private transportation industry and free copies will be available in the booth.
Passengers Have Three Dimensions — IRIS Has 3D
Iris-GmbH Infrared & Intelligent Sensors have made significant research and development efforts to accommodate the fact that passengers have three dimensions. The solution is "IRMA Matrix."
The new IRMA Matrix automatic passenger counter (APC) system makes use of the modern "Time-of-Flight (TOF)" technology. TOF is utilizing the speed of light and breaking new ground in terms of extending the infrared sensor technology toward the third dimension. Infrared light is sent out by the sensor, reflected by the passengers and detected by the sensor. The speed of the light, i.e., the run time from sensor to object and back to sensor, is used to measure the distance between sensor and detection object. Since the speed of light is a constant and thus a very robust measurement, the IRMA Matrix sensor system is not affected by temperature, brightness, moisture, sun/shade contrast or condition of the background (reflecting or non-reflecting surfaces). Consequently, IRMA Matrix is immune against influences and/or changes of the environs.
The IRMA Matrix sensor makes use of infrared LEDs. It uses the phase difference between the transmitted and reflected/decoded signals and the runtime of the signals to calculate the distance between sensor and detection objects. A matrix of 500 image points is provided to scan the door area. By measuring the distance for each individual pixel of the image, the IRMA Matrix sensor enables the provision of true three-dimensional images in real time. The high number of image points allows for extreme high count accuracy. Distinction between passengers and objects — recognition of wheelchairs, strollers etc. — will be possible in the near future. Individual body characteristics can be taken into account and individual persons are detected even when boarding or alighting in tightly packed crowds or when boarding and de-boarding simultaneously.
The Simple and Cost-Effective Way to Make Wheels Safe
Conventional wheel nuts used on heavy vehicles loosen. This unfortunate and long-standing truth has resulted in wheels dislodging and causing accidents involving property damage, personal injuries and, in the worst case, fatalities. Productivity, delivery efficiency and operating costs are negatively affected. The new Nord-Lock wheel nut eliminates unintentional loosening of wheel nuts, the main cause of wheel loss. Based on proven wedge-locking technology, the Nord-Lock wheel nut is designed for both on- and off-road vehicles. It suits standard flat-faced steel rims, M22x1.5 studs and is easy to install. The Nord-Lock wheel nut is available this spring.
