ASA Electronics

ASA Electronics seven-inch digital wireless observation system features WiSight™ technology, which helps to eliminate dangerous blind spots and visibility limitations often encountered while out on the road.

The seven-inch screen provides viewers with a sharp, vivid picture of a vehicle’s surroundings, allowing the driver to safely perform many driving maneuvers such as reversing, merging, or changing lanes.

Wilcox

Wilcox updated kitting option for its Mini-Cutting Torch, the DOD-DHS kit, includes multiple bottles with everything needed to begin torching right out of the case. The DOD-DHS torch kit comes standard with 95Ci and 285Ci bottles but is modular and customizable with the ability to change out for any combination of bottles offered by Wilcox, making it versatile and adaptable to any mission requirements. The Mini-Cutting Torch uses fuel rods promoted by pure oxygen to cut through metal, concrete, and other materials. The Mini-Cutting Torch uses Wilcox’s HellBoy™ Torch Handle that allows the operator to precisely control the O2 flow using a thumb wheel control. The handle stays cool to the touch and has a trigger safety lock to prevent accidental operation. Several safety features are included on the Mini Cutting Torch including an O2 pressure relief valve, which protects the cylinder manifold, and an O2 Burst Disk, which prevents the cylinder itself from being overpressurized during charging. www.wilcoxind.com, 603-431-1331
