Product Innovations: May 2017 Issue
Processing Manufacturing Data Software
Seeq’s new R17 software is driven by input and use cases from customers. A key innovation in the release is support for visual analytics on data in any time reference for improved correlation analysis of historical data sets, monitoring support of incoming data and predictive analytics to anticipate future events and issues. R17 has interactive tools for batch analytics with reference lines, boundaries and cleansing data. Also, output may now be displayed in bar charts and histograms for improved visualizations.
Chemical Labeling Software

Loftware’s software features an intuitive new interface, which empowers business users to streamline the creation and management of labeling logic with easy drag-and-drop capabilities. Spectrum 3.0 also provides enhancements to Spectrum’s Application Architect, which enables users to create label related applications within Spectrum that streamline labeling and reduce the cost to create and maintain custom applications.
Risk Management Mobile App
Assessment, a new mobile application from Sphera, enables users of the Sphera Impact enterprise operational risk management solution to perform and synchronize event reporting, field observations and status updates. It also takes employees through the revision and approval workflows directly from their mobile devices regardless of their location. Using speech to text with the app, workers are able to record observations without having to type on their mobile device. Additionally, field employees can complement their reports with pictures or recorded videos and audio statements.
Fluid Injection Protection
PIRTEK’s 9030P fluid power glove protects hands against the hazards of fluid injection. This is ideal for those who work on or with equipment powered by hydraulic and other high-pressure systems. The glove protects from fluid injection injuries up to 10,150 PSI (700 bar). The gloves’ SuperFabric gives injection resistance from apertures ranging in size from .002” to .012” (0.05 to 0.3 mm) using standard hydraulic oil. Needlestick resistance grants protection in palm of the hand and fingers. Gloves are available in sizes ranging from medium to 2XL.
Bluetooth-Enabled Fixed Gas Detector
The Sensepoint XCL is a wall-mounted device that monitors for hazardous levels of specific gases such as carbon monoxide, ammonia or methane. When paired with a smartphone using a downloadable app, Honeywell’s Sensepoint allows a single installer to perform commissioning, maintenance and management of the detector without requiring a second worker in a control room. It also simplifies generating system reports needed for regulatory compliance.
