Feedback from the SAFA Symposium

Extech are regular attendees and exhibitors at the SAFA Symposium, often presenting a paper. In 2017, we decided not to present a paper, but we exhibited all our exciting new products & introduced our new partners.

The demo cameras (both digital & IR) from CorDEX http://www.cord-ex.com/, our newly signed partner, were a highlight and Extech have now increased their stock holding to 5 ToughPix cameras.

From MTL, we had a demo unit of the new IP camera (Ex ia IIB T4 Ga; Ex ia IIIC T135°C Da, Ex ia I Ma (M1 mining)) within the IS ethernet range  https://www.mtl-inst.com/products/cat/intrinsically_safe_ethernet

Lastly, the IS AEGEx Windows 10 tablet demo units also attracted attention. http://aegex.com/products/aegex10-intrinsically-safe-tablet/

Feedback from the AAF Exhibition

Extech were delighted to have UK visitors: John Hartley from Extronics, Dave Turner from Beka & Marcus Halliday from Cord-EX, on our stand at AAF 2017 http://www.reedexpoafrica.co.za/AfricaAutomationFair/. We were happy to reconnect with some of our existing customers as well as meet many new contacts & potential clients.

With demo units on the stand, the CorDEX cameras http://www.cord-ex.com/ (both digital & IR) stole the show (ok, on our stand!) with a huge amount of interest. Extech have now increased their stock holding to 5 ToughPix cameras, so our lead time is greatly improved.

Beka http://www.beka.co.uk/product_range.html also demonstrated their new range of displays & indicators with Dave on hand to answer any Beka related questions.

John Hartley had several lengthy discussions about Wifi, Rfid and tagging & tracking in hazardous areas with several interested parties.  Extech have now increased the range to include the Extronics Advance / Aeroscout Industrial offerings. http://www.extronics.com/
