cean Optics has expanded its Spark spectral sensor range with the addition of the Spark-DET-VIS. The most versatile of the Spark line of spectral sensors, the tiny sensor-only version weighs less than 1g, making it the smallest spectral device on the market. While optical technology advances have shrunk instrument size, the Spark-DET-VIS still delivers full spectral measurements over the visible wavelength range of 380-700 nm. The low-cost Spark-DET-VIS measures simple absorbance, fluorescence and emissive colour. Its ultra-compact size is ideal for high volume integration into the custom electronics of a wide range of portable and Internet- enabled sensing devices for environmental, food, agriculture, biomedical and quality control applications.

he winter months bring adverse weather conditions and reduced daylight hours, staying visible whilst working in poorly lit conditions

is paramount to worker safety. To help reduce the risk of accidents or injury to workers, safety experts Arco, has launched its ‘Be Safe Be Seen’ campaign, highlighting a range of Hi Vis hazardwear which will assist employers in improving the visibility of their employees. Wearing the correct Hi Vis hazardwear is a simple, cost-effective solution to ensuring that workers remain visible in any working conditions. The fluorescent material that HiVis garments are made from provide day time visibility, whilst the reflective bands around the chest, arms or legs provide night time reflectivity, resulting in 24 hour visibility. Arco offers a comprehensive range of HiVis hazardwear to suit all budgets from Arco Essentials through to GORE-TEX® Garments, which have all been tested to meet relevant EN Standards.

Schoeller Allibert improves attached lid container design


choeller Allibert has developed two new Kaiman attached lid containers (ALCs) to be the most secure tamper-evident containers on the market providing our customers with unrivalled protection from opportunist theft. Stacking securely when loaded and nesting when empty, they also help to reduce transport costs, speed handling operations and eliminate packaging waste. The new 54 and 65 litre Kaiman models have enhanced security features.

These include the introduction of Separate legal-for-trade cable

lengths are also available in the 6-wire configuration for added flexibility, which can reduce the cost of installation, without affecting the class accuracy of the load cell.

innovative teeth on the lid, which interlock with the container base to prevent lids from being prised open when closed, and fitted with tamper-evident security seals. The new Kaiman ALCs are 10% lighter than existing models, reducing fuel costs and improving carbon footprint. In addition to the lightweight properties, the 54 and 65 litre ALCs stack seven high and carry a 25Kg unit load.
