When Technology Goes Wrong
Digital technology is relied on more than ever, and is expected to work in the most hostile conditions and environments, including extreme heat in the firefighting industry and exposure to water in boats and military operations. When technology fails to live up to its duties, situations can quickly turn awry. To highlight the absolute importance of arming yourself with technology that’s robust, reliable and seriously resilient, we’ve come up with some scenarios where it pays to have quality on your side.
Today catering businesses do so much more than simply whip up a storm in the kitchen. Chefs, produce buyers, waiters and other staff rely on technology to keep things running smoothly, even when the kitchen is flat out chaotic. In amongst the madness it can be all too easy to spill food or drink onto technological devices, or accidently expose them to an open flame or white hot oven top. Not to mention the risk of deterioration from moisture, bacteria and germs. When devices are no longer functional kitchens can be thrown into turmoil. This is where waterproof membrane keypads and graphic overlays come in extremely useful.
Regardless of how sophisticated technology may be, most is unable to withstand extreme temperatures. When things heat up, it’s critical to have fire detection, fire alarm and fire extinguishing control panel products that are UL94 approved and able to endure the heat. Without them, equipment managers run the risk of faulty or damaged devices which could ultimately cost lives.
From the artic to the desert, today’s military personnel operate in a myriad of extreme environments. When it comes to technology, functionality can mean the difference between life and death. That’s why it’s critical for military recruits to arm themselves with reliable keypads, overlays and industrial graphic applications that are just as tough as their corps.
When it comes to disease control in the medical sphere it’s vital to keep equipment clean and sanitised at all times. Without UL approved antibacterial materials to encase devices, the risk of infections increases immensely.
The Harsh Climate Of The High Seas
With constant exposure to UV light and saltwater, marine climates are brutal on technology. From navigational systems to search and rescue equipment, it’s important to ensure that devices are fully functional at all times. Without reliable technology on-hand vessels put themselves at the mercy of the ocean, which can result in dire consequences.
Want to arm your operations with total functionality, regardless of the environment? We can help with a specialist range of ultra-robust concept-to-supply solutions for a diverse range of industrial sectors.
