New Products Showcase: Part 2
Loader and Backhoe Product Line Updated
Case Construction Equipment has launched a complete update of its loader/backhoe product line, introducing four new N Series loader/backhoe models. The company describes the N Series as "stronger everywhere," unveiling dramatic increases in backhoe breakout force and lift, along with increased loader breakout force, lift and reach. The new machines also provide substantially improved visibility and operator comfort.
The new Case 580N, 580 Super N, 580 Super N Wide Track and 590 Super N loader/backhoes replace the company's M Series 3 product line. The new machines all feature 4.5-liter, turbocharged engines, ranging from 79 hp in the 580N to 108 hp in the 590SN. The N Series was engineered from the ground up, it's reported.
Power Lift, a new N Series feature, channels the hydraulic power directly to the boom with the touch of a button. As a result, backhoe lifting capabilities are cited to outperform competitive models by as much as 39 percent-while running at low engine rpms.
In addition, a new fabricated boom design increases strength while maintaining the over-center design. Backhoe bucket pins are larger and stronger to accommodate the improved lift capacities.

Swap: the New Spectacle-to-Goggle Eyewear That Does the Work of Both
Gateway Safety introduces Swap, a protective eyewear solution that features two products in one: a safety spectacle and a safety goggle. Swap comes with temples for use as safety glasses as well as a head strap to make it a safety goggle. Ideal for workers who perform a variety of tasks throughout the day, Swap is a cost-effective option that easily can be turned from spectacle to goggle by swapping the temples and head strap with a simple snap.
Sleek and lightweight, Swap eyewear combines all-day comfort with the all-around impact protection of a one-piece polycarbonate lens. The two-color temples are rubberized for all day comfort, and the head strap is fully adjustable to fit any size head. The Swap frame itself is fully lined with soft, smooth foam that blocks dust and debris. Venting channels minimize fogging and help maintain a clear field of vision. These features help increase compliance, reducing the likelihood of injuries that can happen if safety eyewear is even briefly removed.

Dual-line Intelligent Panel Meters
Davis Instruments now offers the latest in two-line intelligent panel meter technology. Used to display temperature, dc current, voltage or process signals from level transmitters, pressure sensors and more, the Red Lion's PAX2A is designed for applications in which two parameters need to be visualized at the same time.
The unit's main LCD offers three programmable colors-red, orange and green-so users can easily identify process control variables. The input, total, min, max or set points can be displayed on the 0.7-inch high, six-digit display. The color change can be tied to the set points that will provide a visual display of changing conditions in the application. The second display line, a 0.35-inch high, nine-digit, green LCD, offers the same programmability. The nine-digit display allows for totalizing application that easily exceeds the normal six-digit displays. In addition to the dual displays, the meter offers a three-digit programmable mnemonic cue, allowing users to add identification to the display value.

Wide Lens LED Rocker Switch Provides High Visibility, Durability, Safety
Cole Hersee Co., a manufacturer of heavy-duty electrical and digital products for the vehicle industry, introduces its newly engineered LED Rocker Switch for electrical applications. Engineered with safety as a top priority, this low current input membrane switch is compatible with microprocessor-based electrical/electronic systems and offers high visibility and durability, no matter the time of day or weather condition.
The LED Rocker Switch is unique in that the wide, wrap-around green and yellow colored lenses are working parts of the actuator rather than separate components inserted into the actuator. This significantly increases the chance of seeing the illumination when viewed from an oblique angle, from a distance or in the bright sunlight-decreasing risks on-site.
This switch will conveniently snap into standard panel holes. Custom order pilot lights for 24V switches are available.
