Route Optimization

Telogis Inc. announced the release of Telogis Route 3.0, a new version of the software-as-a-service multi-vehicle route optimization application featuring a new patent-pending “Advanced Territories” technology. Advanced Territories allows companies to give geographic-centric routes to drivers without limiting routing options to those boundaries. Built off the infrastructure of the Telogis Cloud, Telogis Route 3.0 is driven by massive computing power that offers greater response speed and functionality than competitive route optimization systems.

Aluminum Crimper

BURNDY, a manufacturer and provider of electrical connector solutions and application tooling, announced release of the MRC840AL tool designed specifically for use on aluminum BURNDY HYLUG (type YA-A) and HYLINK (type YS-A) terminals and splices ranging from #8–4/0 AWG. Features heat-treated steel jaws to reduce jaw buckling and misalignment under heavy loading. Plated jaws provide enhanced corrosion resistance. Crimper has rotatable, color-coded die wheel marked with conductor size.


Wireless Transfer

Telit Wireless Solutions Inc., a specialist in machine-to-machine (m2M) technology, launched a new module featuring wireless M-bus transfer technology in October 2011. The new ME50-169 module features 169 MHz suited for smart gas, water, heating or electricity meters. These smart meters automatically transmit consumption data to the utility companies, which increases the accuracy and transparency of bills, offers better customer service and helps improve energy efficiency. Telit’s ME50-169 modules are compliant to the latest wireless M-bus standard and are fully devoted to metering in the 169 MHz band. 169 MHz provides a much higher performance in terms of range than 868 or even 433 MHz.
