- Published: May 13, 2018
Abicor Binzel has released the new EWR 2 / EWR 2 Net Gas Management System.
First debuted last year at Essen, EWR 2 is the evolution of Binzel’s original Electronic Welding Regulator, now with network-compatible software integration for gas use monitoring and measuring in real time.
EWR 2 is Binzel’s first product designed and built for Industry 4.0. With an Ethernet and CAN interface connection, EWR 2 is capable of connecting to any business‘s local area network to perform data logging of gas usage for manufacturers over any period of time and have its parameters adjusted remotely. A single software program can access and monitor gas usage for any number of EWR 2 gas management system units.
EWR 2 utilizes quick action frequency valves to regulate the flow of gas in relation to the weld current. Gas savings with the EWR 2 still achieve the same 60 per cent potential as the first iteration of EWR, in addition to an improved display screen and the internet compatibility features.
