American Sensor Technologies, Inc. (‘AST’) has developed a superior quality, high-accuracy Solid State Pressure Switch for the measurement of gases and liquids compatible with stainless steel.

(PRWEB) February 23, 2022 -- Constructed of stainless steel, the rugged design of Model 1000 units make them ideal for industrial, hydraulic, refrigeration, off-road and agricultural applications such as boiler controls, HVAC, filtration, and pipeline gas instrumentation.

Offering excellent, long-term stability, Model 1000 pressure switches feature a compact design with excellent long-term stability. Its one-piece diaphragm is free of internal O-rings, welds or fill fluids, eliminating the chance of process contamination. A high level of EMI/RFI protection (100V/m) shields the units against electrical noise and interference. Heavy-duty relay contacts offer electrical isolation up to 500VDC. Model 1000 units also have wide operating temperature ranging from -40 to 85ºC (-40 to 185ºF).

The competitively priced Model 1000 offers a factory set switching point and hysteresis. Units offer switching capability of 1 amp @24V DC or 0.5 amps @ 125V AC, max. Open or closed output is provided, based on customer’s defined switching point. At lower currents, pressure switches exhibit a high switching cycle life of 2 million pressure cycles. Units are available in pressure ranges up to 10,000 psi

Brighton Hires Marketing Authority for RFID, B2B, Supply Chain Logistics and Warehousing Industries

Brighton, a full-service advertising, public relations and digital marketing agency, has hired Jane Allred, an acknowledged authority in marketing RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology and supply chain logistics. At Brighton, Allred will develop marketing strategies and programs for RFID, supply chain logistics, warehousing and cargo clients, and will spearhead the agency's new business efforts within those market segments.

(PRWEB) February 2, 2022 -- Brighton (www.brightondm.com) announced the appointment of Jane Allred, an acknowledged authority in marketing RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology and supply chain logistics, as senior vice president. Allred previously ran her own business-to-business technology marketing firm, Allred Marketing, Inc., based in Phoenix, AZ. She recently gained national recognition in the emerging RFID market by producing the RFID Knowledge Center for the Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA). The Center showcased at ProMat 2005, January 10-13, at Chicago’s McCormick Place South.

At Brighton, Allred will focus on development of marketing strategies and programs for supply chains logistics and RFID clients. By combining her technology expertise with Brighton’s traditional and innovative digital marketing capabilities, Allred will also spearhead Brighton’s business development efforts within those market segments.

“Logistics is important to commerce, and RFID represents one of the greatest technology shifts of the 21st Century” said Roger Yount, president of Brighton. “As businesses fully comprehend the benefits of RFID, we will be in a dynamic market position to serve the numerous segments of this emerging market. Jane is one of the best in the field.

RFID technology creates visibility of components and products throughout the supply chain, eliminating out-of-stock situations, theft, counterfeiting, spoilage, and excess inventory. Its adoption has been fueled by the initiatives of Wal-Mart, the Department of Defense, Proctor & Gamble, International Paper and others which have required some suppliers to be RFID compliant in 2005. It is viewed by many as the replacement for bar code technology.

Allred will remain in the Phoenix area, but spend significant time at client locations as well as Brighton’s St. Louis headquarters.

Intechra Makes Its Debut as Leading Tech Recycler; New Name for One of the Pioneers of Commercial Electronics Recycling

One of the pioneering companies in the business of commercial recycling of technology products is now Intechra, LLC, formerly known as Recycled Computers International, LLC and before that as Resource Concepts, Inc (RCI).

Carrollton, TX (PRWEB) January 24, 2022 -- One of the pioneering companies in the business of commercial recycling of technology products is now Intechra, LLC, formerly known as Recycled Computers International, LLC and before that as Resource Concepts, Inc (RCI).

Founded by entrepreneur Ray Chapman in 1987 as Resource Concepts, Inc., Intechra is now recognized as one of the leaders in the young and fast-growing industry. In Spring 2004, Chapman sold the company to a private investor group, led by Votum Capital, of Jackson, MS. The new owners renamed the company Recycled Computers International, LLC.

Board chairman Chip Slack said the new corporate identity is meant to suggest a new, bolder vision for the company, with a clear focus on integrity and technology. Slack said the company intends to set the industry standard for the integrity of its business processes, particularly data destruction, and integrity in its dealings with customers, vendors, employees and investors. He said the company also will expand its recycling and remarketing services.

In October, Intechra named Cindy Brannon, recruited from Hewlett Packard, as its new CEO. Brannon brings to Intechra more than 18 years of corporate management experience in the technology industry.

Housed in a state-of-the-art, 193,000 sq ft facility in Carrollton, TX, near Dallas, Intechra provides one-stop recycling services for both obsolete and remarketable computer equipment. Intechra’s services address the critical triangle of computer recycling and remarketing: Investment Recovery; Data Destruction and E-Waste Recycling with Environmental Liability Protection. It is one of the few companies in the industry that offers all three services at one location.

For data destruction, Intechra uses the Department of Defense standard method and other methods that ensure the original owner’s information is removed and rendered unrecoverable.

Intechra provides recycling services for major computer manufacturers such as Dell, Hewlett Packard, and Gateway, and to businesses such as banks, professional service firms, hospitals and manufacturing companies.

It sells refurbished and almost-new computers, peripherals, and spare parts through its retail division, Outlet Computer Store and OutletComputer.com, and through a vast network of dealers and distributors in the USA and in foreign markets. In fact, 70 per cent of the products handled by Intechra are remarketed. Intechra itself runs on refurbished computer equipment.

No Intechra products are shipped to foreign markets unless they are in good working condition, have resale value and the foreign brokers and dealers meet Intechra’s tough standards for remarketing. Proceeds from the sale of refurbished equipment are shared with the original owners or manufacturers.

Since the company’s founding, it has received eight patents on its end-of-life processing and has opened the door for new uses of recycled base materials. It has received numerous local, state, and national awards for its recycling achievements. It was one of the first recyclers to adopt the “Electronics Recycler’s Pledge of True Stewardship”. Recently, the Gartner Group named Intechra (previously Recycled Computers International) as one of the leading commercial recyclers for the technology industry in the U.S.
