MetConnect promotion T


o celebrate the benefits of combining its MetPak Pro and MetStream products, Gill Instruments Ltd,


which designs and manufactures meteorological equipment, has launched the MetConnect promotion, which runs for three months from 7 July. MetConnect is the


combination of MetPak Pro


and MetStream into one package, which provides the ability to link, bridge, store and stream data between devices. MetPak Pro is a professional


compact weather station, which includes four interface ports for connecting additional third-party sensors. It can be used for any weather monitoring application on land or sea. MetPak Pro comes with approvals, including IEC-60945 for marine environments and has


communications protocols including MODBUS. It provides exceptional quality


data and reliability suitable for professional reference quality measurements on six weather parameters (temperature, humidity, pressure, dew point, wind direction and wind speed). It allows users to connect and supply power to other sensors through a digital rain gauge input, sensitive PRT and analogue inputs.


MetStream is an intelligent


communications hub, which seamlessly connects to MetPak Pro, connecting data from sensors to the internet or any network with its Ethernet port or built in Wi-Fi. Launched earlier this year, MetStream is one of the first meteorological devices capable of sampling data from multiple customised sensors without the need for user programming. It streams data directly to any browser

Game-based safety simulation


The European launch of Marina Safety Awareness Training by MYMIC Global Ltd, a high- technology company specialising in game-based learning, simulations, modeling and computer visualisation solutions, took place at the recent Seawork International Exhibition. MYMIC, which develops a variety of safety training solutions and works closely with marinas across the United States and Canada, is now bringing its experience and technology to Europe. The product utilises 3D game-


based training to allow trainees to interact with a virtual marina. Faced with realistic scenarios, the trainee learns how to identify and deal with potential hazards. It includes an introduction to


the marina environment and a safety summary. Packages are available as bundles and they can be customised with modules of choice and company logos. All bundles support European Agency for Occupational Safety & Health Administration (EU- OSHA) compliance. Topics are wide-ranging and


cover areas such as dock hazards, fueling, electrical, hazcom signage, the PASS technique for fire extinguisher use, heat injuries, travel lift/forklift, dry stack storage, spill response, ladders/scaffolds, power tools, cold weather, power washing, painting and use of respirators.
