How to Prepare for Obsolesence

"Obsolescence is inevitable and the only way to manage it cost effectively is to put a plan in place . Think of it as a preventive maintenance program for products," as stated by Myron Pugh, vice president and engineering director of Foliage, in the most recent issue of Control Engineering. At OTEK we took obsolescence into consideration with our new product lines. Our new NTM and UPM series use multi-vendor sourcing to reduce obsolescence.

Looking for a Loop Powered Digital LED Indicator?

The 4-20mA current loop has proven to be a simple, effective, and reliable means of transmitting electronic signals and power on a single pair of wires. Since current is constant for all points in a loop, current loops can transmit lossless signals over kilometers of wiring. Large facilities have widely adopted the 4-20mA signal as a primary means of data transmission to ensure signal integrity.

Evolving LED Technology has Rendered the LCD Obsolete

Digital Panel Meter (DPM) users have always had a difficult choice to make when it comes to their display. While having options available to the industry is necessary, it also creates a complex decision making process.
