Remote monitor units
Global Monitoring reintroduced its GMU 8100 Remote Monitor under its Messenger brand of remote monitoring units.
The remote monotirs are land-line based, using common telephone lines that are ideal for use in applications where other networks are not readily available or in remote, unattended facilities. The monitor also supports OEM vendors needing to monitor third-party services at customer locations without tapping into customer communication networks.

W.L. Gore & Associates’ Portable Electronic Vents group designed the GAW113 acoustic vent to provide dust and splash protection for acoustic opening in portable electronic devices such as scanners, two-way radios, tablet and laptop PCs.
The vents are made to protect acoustic openings with a barrier against dust, dirt and various liquids while equalizing pressure and minimizing transmission loss and attenuation in sealed acoustic devices. The vents are a proprietary non-woven composite material that adheres to the acoustic openings and has a thickness of 0.47 mm.
