Milwaukee® M18™ XC5.0 Battery Delivers Game-Changing Performance

With the introduction of the new M18™ REDLITHIUM™ XC5.0 Extended Capacity Battery Pack in November 2014, Milwaukee will deliver up to 2.5X more run-time, 20% more power and 2X more life than standard Screen Shot 2014-10-07 at 4.05.54 PMlithium-ion batteries.

“It is not enough to increase Amp Hours and put a higher number on the side of the pack,” says Paul Fry, VP of Product Marketing for Milwaukee Tool. “While Amp Hours is one piece of the equation, this battery is a ground up redesign that delivers the best combination of cell selection, pack construction, and electronics to deliver maximum performance, durability and run-time.  As we continue to push the limits and bridge the gap between cordless and corded tools with game-changing new products, we will also continue to advance our battery pack development to keep up with the increased demands of the tools.”

The new M18™ XC5.0 battery will deliver more work per charge and more work over the life of the pack than any other 18V battery on the market. Upgrading to the new battery pack will instantly increase the run-time and durability of user’s current M18™ cordless tools.

Featuring a Milwaukee®-exclusive design, the pack is protected against harsh jobsite environments.  This protection routes water away from the electronics and out of the battery pack, extends run-time and life by minimizing heat, and prevents pack failures from vibration or drops.  This advanced design also allows the battery to operate in extreme cold weather conditions (below OoF/-18oC).

Managed by Milwaukee’s exclusive REDLINK™ Intelligence, the battery also features overload protection to prevent users from damaging their cordless power tools in heavy-duty situations, while the discharge protection prevents cell damage.

Available in November 2014, the new M18™ REDLITHIUM™ XC5.0 Battery will be sold as an accessory to the M18™ System, and will have full system compatibility with all 60+ M18™ cordless solutions.  Milwaukee® is committed to the ongoing development of this platform and will continue to provide innovative solutions that offer industry leading durability, performance and ergonomics.

Armstrong Fluid Technology Unveils ADEPT Pump Selection Software App for Mobile Devices

TORONTO- Armstrong Fluid Technology has enhanced its popular ADEPT Pump Selection Software with the release of a robust new app for iPad and other mobile devices. Designed to take mobile interface to a whole new level, the new ADEPT app allows engineers and end-users to quickly select a variety of intelligent HVAC product solutions from virtually anywhere in the world.

An innovative, intuitive screen design allows users to view line drawings, multi-curves, photos, voltage, motor size, seal operating limits, seal options, construction options and more than a dozen motor options.  ADEPT then lists the pumps that meet users’ specific criteria, as well as the key characteristics of each selection – such as ‘efficiency at average load’, ‘operating costs’ and ‘motor size’.

According to ADEPT Product Manager, Mohan Gulati, ADEPT is the most advanced selection software in the industry and offers features not available on other pump selection programs. ADEPT has been redesigned for each of the most popular browsers and mobile devices and features a native application for the iPad.

“ADEPT was created to interface with Armstrong’s innovative Design Envelope intelligent engineered fluid systems which help users design more energy-efficient buildings, significantly reduce their installation and operating costs, and gain a smaller footprint in the mechanical room,” Gulati summarized.

ADEPT complements Armstrong’s Design Envelope products, including commercial and residential pumps, Suction guides and Flo-Trex valves.
A video on ADEPT for iPhone is available here, as is a white paper comparing the benefits of ADEPT to other pump selection software programs.
