Westermo Teleindustri AB

Viper series

The Viper is a family of M12 ultra slim rugged Ethernet switches designed for applications with severe operating conditions and extreme environments. A MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) calculated to more than a 100 years, makes these units ideal for situations where mechanical stress, moisture, condensation, dirt or continuous vibrations could adversely affect the function of standard Ethernet switches.


The need for high density and modular connectors in the aeronautics market

In order to reduce the weight and to optimise information processing, the architecture of onboard electronic calculators has evolved from control units dedicated to a single function (integration of sensor signals, data fusion, image processing, etc.), to a multifunctional control unit. Connectors had to be adapted.

Ingersoll Rand

Introducing 100% inline pneumatic control

This new control handle from Ingersoll Rand is intended for use in the easy handling of loads from 5 to 225kg. Used with Ingersoll Rand’s standard range of pneumatic load balancers, it is the only model on the market that is completely pneumatic, so doesn’t require any electric power supply. It gives the user an acute sense of control, with ergonomic positioning of the load, which allows increased productivity.


Introducing CIAT’s Climaciat Air Compact range

CIAT’s new air handling unit, Climaciat Air Compact, is only 40cm thick. This means it can easily be placed in very tight spaces – on either ceilings or walls. With pressures from 100 to 1000Pa, and airflow from 1500 to 6000 m3/h, the unit has hundreds of variants, made from standard components.



FREE COOLING is an optional module for AQUACIAT cooling units to reduce the consumption of energy in offices in the winter. Unlike previous solutions, FREE COOLING is totally integrated in the cooling unit and is delivered pre-configured and installed. Installers have simply to make a single electrical and hydraulic connection for the assembly. In relation to previous solutions, AQUACIAT FREE COOLING allows a gain of 25 to 40% of floor area. Intended for 185 to 485 kW AQUACIAT cooling units, it produces energy savings of 20 to 50% in relation to a conventional configuration with a single cooling unit.


AQUACIAT CALEO: the refurbishment solution suitable for both large homes and small commercial premises

With power ratings up to 50kw and the production of hot water at 65°C, the Aquaciat Caleo range is the first European solution for refurbishing large buildings, small hotels and light industries. Energy savings of around 50% are achievable in refurbishment, thanks to the heat pumps now available in these markets. Aquaciat Caleo allows the replacement of conventional heating, while keeping existing radiators, to manage the production of clean hot water or to heat swimming pools.
