    Which is Better, Electric Hoist or Air Hoist?

    Air hoists (also known as pneumatic hoists) and electric hoists are two types of lifting equipment with different power sources.
    Pneumatic hoists utilize air pressure as their power source and typically comprise pneumatic motors, wire ropes, lifting mechanisms, and operating control systems. They are characterized by their simple structure, safety, reliability, and stable operation. These hoists are suitable for special environments such as those with explosion hazards or in damp and corrosive conditions. They find wide application in handling and lifting operations in factories, warehouses, ports, and other locations.
    Electric hoists, on the other hand, are powered by electric motors and usually consist of electric motors, wire ropes, lifting mechanisms, control systems, and safety protection devices. They are known for their compact size, light weight, and ease of operation. Electric hoists are extensively used in handling and lifting operations across various settings such as factories, warehouses, and docks, and they are adaptable to diverse working environments.

    What is an Air Hoist?

    Air hoists, or pneumatic hoists, are ideal explosion-proof lifting equipment, mainly used in high-explosive dust environments such as petroleum, chemical, coal mines, textiles, and other situations where explosion-proof requirements are needed. As an upgraded alternative to electric hoists, air hoists operate efficiently with minimal energy consumption, requiring only compressed air at a specified pressure for operation. Air hoists are equipped with air-cut protection, which ensures that the workpiece does not descend or fall in case of sudden loss of air pressure. Additionally, these hoists can be paired with various non-standard lifting fixtures to accommodate workpieces of different shapes. They can also be used in conjunction with jib cranes or guide rails for mobility, making them essential tools for promoting safety and cost-effectiveness in industrial operations. ATO Automation Store offers air chain hoists with specifications ranging from 300 lb 10 ft to 2000 lb 20 ft, providing flexibility to meet diverse lifting needs.

    Difference between Active Buzzer and Passive Buzzer

    Buzzers are divided into active buzzers and passive buzzers. The "source" here does not refer to the power supply, but the oscillation source. Active buzzers have oscillation sources, while passive buzzers do not. The differences between them also include: different working principles, different appearances, different prices, different test sounds and multimeter resistance measurements, different requirements for input signals, different DC voltage tests, and different applicable scenarios. Next, ATO Automation Store will explain in detail for you.

    How to Use the Motor Alarm?

    Motor alarm is a type of sound and light alarm, also known as vibration alarm, which is a sound signal generator, mainly used for alarm, prompt and other occasions. It uses the built-in motor to remind the user that there is an abnormal situation in the device or room. It is usually composed of components such as batteries, circuit boards, vibration motors, etc.

    What are Types of Motor Alarms?

    An alarm is an electronic product that reminds or warns us in the form of sound, light, air pressure, etc. that we should take certain actions to prevent the consequences of an event. Alarms are divided into motor alarms and electronic alarms. This blog will introduce motor alarms in detail. A motor alarm is a special alarm directly driven by an electric motor. It converts electrical energy into mechanical energy to make a loud sound. It is usually composed of a motor, a rotor, a circuit board, and a housing. ATO's motor alarm types include wind screw motor alarms, explosion-proof motor alarms, and motor driven siren alarms. 

    Electronic Ballast Price List

    An electronic ballast is an electronic device that regulates the current used in electronic equipment for fluorescent and other gas discharge lamps.

    Inkjet Printer Price List

    An inkjet printer is a printing device that sprays colored liquid ink onto printing paper. It has one or more printing nozzles for printing ink of different colors. The technologies used in inkjet printers include bubble technology and thermal responsive inkjet technology. During the printing process, the nozzle quickly sweeps over the printing paper, spraying countless small ink droplets to form the pixels in the image. Generally speaking, the more nozzles there are, the faster the printing speed. Different colored ink droplets fall on the same point, forming different complex colors. Using a microscope, it can be observed that the areas where both yellow and blue purple ink are sprayed simultaneously appear green, so we can assume that the printed base color is formed in the inkjet coating layer
