Garden Light LED Expands Micro Max Lighting Series with Stunning New Beam Variations

TAMPA, Fla. -- Garden Light LED announces their Micro Series fixtures designed to project powerful light from a small source in areas like stairs and steps, discrete overhangs, handrails, trees, potted plants, water features, and garden landscapes. Available in five different beam patterns, the Micro Series fixtures are miniature, measuring only 1.3 inches (w) x 1.5 inches (l) x 0.5 inches (h) - smaller than a matchbook.

The Owl projects a long, oblong beam pattern, while the Tiger Eye produces a rectangular beam, the Ram provides a V-shaped beam, and the Rock projects its beam forward and down. The original Micro Max provides a standard flood output.

Garden Light LED will be holding a live informational webinar this Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at 2 p.m. ET on the Micro Series variations. Register here: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/5378575999249640717

To ensure precision and consistency in production, they are manufactured using CNC machining - a process that relies on computer-controlled machines in the fabrication of components.

All five Micro Series fixtures are IP68-rated - meaning they are dust-tight and can be immersed in water.

Bonsi Inc Launches New Gen Cordless Blender That Connects to RTIC, Yeti, Hydro Flask Bottles

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Bonsi Inc, a premier manufacturer and retailer of superior small appliances, introduces a new generation of cordless blenders that gives you the power of a traditional blender on the go. Bonsi Blend launch's on Indiegogo on the 26th of January. Bonsi Blend connects directly to RTIC®, Yeti®, and Hydro Flask® bottles*. A 25-Volt power pack providing 750-watts of peak power and up to 30 blends per charge.

The Bonsi Story

Bonsi, Inc was founded in April of 2020 by David and Gifty Haight to create consumer products to revolutionize their markets. The question that brought this about was remarkably simple. Gifty called David to see if he could help find a cordless blender with a stainless-steel insulated cup. Gifty wanted something she could take to the gym or work that would keep her drinks cold for hours. After days of searching, they were unable to find what they wanted. They also realized that the blender market had not changed in decades. All the cool technology now available wasn't being used.

After careful thought and consideration, they decided to start Bonsi, Inc. to develop their version of what a blender should be. It needed to integrate all the relevant, current technology to create a powerful, compact, eco-friendly product made with high-quality parts and be easy to use. They knew this would require sacrifice, risk, and months of effort. And they would need to do all of this during a worldwide pandemic and at a time of unprecedented political turmoil. But it had to be done - people deserved a product that would help them live better and simpler lives.

After months of research, endless phone calls, design work, and putting together the best possible team, Bonsi Blend was born. Like the bonsai tree, Bonsi Blend is small, powerful, sturdy, beautiful, and made to last. Because "Deep in Bonsi Inc's core values, is to only create the best products possible, so that's what we did," said David Haight, CEO and Co-Founder.

Bonsi Blend was developed with only the best parts available:

* A 25-Volt Bonsi Power Pack, made from the highest quality lithium-ion batteries, delivers 750 watts of peak power. Easily as powerful as a home blender, Bonsi Blend will give you up to 30 blends per charge.

* The best brushless motor gives it a peak efficiency of 85%, creating a quieter blender.

* Integrated safety technology ensures that the blades won't turn without a cup attached and stop if the blender tips over.

* A USB-C, PD 3.0-Rapid Charger gives it the fastest possible charging speeds.

* Data transfer options allow it to receive remote firmware updates. All you need is a cable to connect the USB-C connector to a computer.

* A rugged, flex-rigid PCB board built to last for years.

* A sliding touch sensor to make operating it intuitive, easy, and simple.

* It was purposely built without a plastic blending vessel. "Let's face it; there are enough plastic bottles in the world," said David Haight, CEO and Co-Founder. Instead, Bonsi Blend attaches to cups already in the market - RTIC® Bottles, Yeti® Bottles, and Hydro Flask® wide-mouth bottles, giving people the choice of brand, color, and bottle size.

As with any new venture, there was a great deal to be endured by everyone involved. With a 3-year-old boy, plus the cost of developing Bonsi Blend, it was not an easy task. David had to travel a lot for work and the development of Bonsi Blend. Gifty worked in the medical field during Covid, picking up extra shifts when she could, while raising their son, Nathan.

As with anything in life, struggle, determination, and sacrifice are part of what makes something great. Bonsi Blend is an extraordinary product, forged with determination and sacrifice, that will revolutionize how blenders are made. Bonsi shows the world that if you have the will to do something, anything is possible.

Gifty and David look forward to sharing Bonsi Blend with the world and sharing the love one blend at a time.

"Bonsi Blend is a product that will change people's lives for the better. It is easy to use, high quality, and built to last. Now people can have the power of a home blender in the palm of their hand," says Gifty Haight, VP & Co-Founder.

Olea Kiosks, Inc. Announces Manufacturing Expansion, Engineering Growth

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Olea Kiosks®, Inc., a visionary provider of self-service kiosk solutions, today announced expansion of its manufacturing and engineering capacity in Los Angeles, Calif. This expansion enables Olea to continue to grow its customer base, partnerships, and OEM relationships to provide faster time to market and greater operational agility.

Going from 48,000 square feet to more than 80,000 square feet, this investment allows Olea to grow its manufacturing volume in its current site and move test and assembly to the new facility next door. The company has also brought on additional engineering design resources and further invested in its data-driven approach to scale and automate internal processes.

Following the completion of site improvements in Q1, this expansion will also provide more floor space to stock additional items giving the company greater capacity to shorten turn-around times on its most popular kiosks.

"This is an exciting new chapter for Olea Kiosks and a considerable progression in our strategic journey," said Frank Olea, Chief Executive Officer. "As a domestic supplier, we've prevailed in an extremely challenging competitive environment. With our universal models, custom designs, and OEM business, we want to further scale for production, field deployment, and support to provide increased value to our strategic partners and produce superior solutions for our customers while serving as a preferred supplier and employer for decades to come. This also gives us some additional space for more exciting changes later this year... more on that to come," added Olea.

Many kiosk suppliers manufacture overseas, and while that can appear to deliver cost savings, it's often in exchange for time-to-market, lack of control, inconvenience, and quality. With the addition of four new products over the last 18 months and just as many in 2021, Olea Kiosks® will further expand its rich and diverse self-service kiosk solution portfolio.

About Olea Kiosks®, Inc.

Olea Kiosks Inc., is a self-service kiosk solution provider for the attractions and entertainment, healthcare and hospitality industries. Its technologically advanced, in-house manufacturing, design, and innovation have made it an industry leader.

ViewTech Borescopes Reports Strong 2020 4th Quarter

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- ViewTech Borescopes concluded 2020 with a 4th quarter, year-over-year, gain in sales. Two organizations that finalized their calendar year by adding a ViewTech VJ-3 video borescope to their maintenance and inspection protocols were a direct steam injection company and an oriented strand board manufacturer.

When the global headquarters for a direct steam injection (DSI) manufacturer sought a way to visually inspect extremely small internal passages throughout their hydro heating, steam heating, and industrialized products technology, an inquiry was placed with ViewTech Borescopes. After a brief conversation with an inspection borescope expert, it was determined the VJ-3 2.8mm x 1.0-meter video borescope would be best suited to access the DSI inspection areas described.

An advantage when considering ViewTech Borescopes remote visual inspection (RVI) video borescope technology is their free trial opportunity. During a no-cost, demo period, their DSI Quality Assurance Manager was able to inspect more than a dozen parts during a small portion of a workday. As a result, the management team, along with President and CEO, approved a year-end capital expenditure, making the VJ-3 video borescope their inspection tool.

Another demo offer that resulted in a VJ-3 video borescope being added to an inspection toolbox was with the world's largest producer of oriented strand board (OSB). While searching inspection scopes to use in conjunction with a vibration monitoring system, an inquiry was placed with ViewTech Borescopes and a VJ-3 6.0mm x 1.5-meter Dual Camera was shipped to trial. While inspecting boiler tubes, conveyors, gear boxes, and equipment throughout one of their Southeast OSB production plant and mills, they decided to purchase the inspection demo unit they were currently utilizing onsite.

VJ-3 Video Borescope

The VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope is a NDT instrument used for the RVI of machinery, equipment, and components. The VJ-3 facilitates the visual recording and photo documentation of inspection and components in areas that are otherwise inaccessible or require great effort and expense to access directly. The VJ-3 video borescope consists of two modules integrated into one system: an insertion tube with distally mounted camera/LEDs, and the base unit with a control panel, LCD monitor, power source, and all necessary circuitry.

About ViewTech Borescopes

ViewTech Borescopes, founded as RF System Lab in 2008, is North America's #1 seller of video borescopes. Their first product, the VJ borescope, set a new standard for portability, ergonomics, and ease-of-use, with its industry-first mechanical, joystick-controlled articulation.

New Carbon Dioxide Monitors Combat Virus Indoors and Meet California Compliance Monitoring Requirements

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- As more and more businesses, schools and other public indoor spaces prepare to open up, they're working to not only be effective, but compliant too. Forensics Detectors works to solve both challenges with the recent launch of its first carbon dioxide (CO2) monitors for COVID-19 preparedness planning. These monitors are specifically designed for indoor spaces such as classrooms, gyms and offices. They're also compliant with the California Assembly Bill AB 841 CO2 monitoring requirements which mandates CO2 indoor air quality monitoring to reduce COVID-19 transmission and infection risk.

The bill requires classrooms to monitor CO2 and provide an alert when the carbon dioxide levels in the classroom have exceeded 1,100 ppm. Forensics Detectors has two new carbon dioxide monitors that fit the bill - two versions of Model C02000 - a USB charger version and a direct plug-in version.

"Carbon Dioxide monitoring is becoming an imperative part of COVID-19 preparedness planning," Dr. Koz, founder and chief engineer, Forensics Detectors, says. "CO2 is exhaled with aerosols containing pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2 from COVID-19 infected people and can be used as a proxy of virus concentrations in the indoor air as shown by the University of Colorado and Harvard School of Public Health."

The CO2000 USB charger version uses a generic USB cable for power and battery recharge. This version is great for mobile battery operation. The CO2000 wall plug-in version plugs directly into a wall power outlet and operates from 110V, so users can simply plug it in and forget about it. If the indoor level of CO2 exceeds 1100 ppm, an LED alarm will sound.

About Forensics Detectors

Since he was 10-years old, founder and chief engineer of Forensics Detectors, Dr. Koz, had an interest in electronic systems. He studied electronic engineering in college and was invited to become a technical member of the graduate Sensor Technology Laboratory at RMIT University. During his tenure, he designed and developed smoke analyzers, infra-red gas and toxic gas sensors and interlock systems. He continued to invent many sensors and systems during his Ph.D. studies until his next breakthrough - the world's first vehicle carbon monoxide sensor system to prevent driver fatigue and suicides.

During his doctoral studies, he traveled around the world three times presenting his inventions and ideas at international conferences and to private industry. He received scholarships and awards for his work developing alcohol breathalyzers, combustion analyzers and ozone sensors.

He met his wife on a conference trip to Greece and the couple soon settled in Los Angeles where he accepted a position as an engineering professor at UCLA. While there, he developed and commercialized nanotechnology for sensing, communications and computing working closely with the U.S. semiconductor and defense industries.

Dr. Koz became a sought-after expert consultant for legal cases involving toxic gas detection and learned that there was an open niche for products that could prevent toxic gas exposure injuries. As a result, in 2017, he established Forensics Detectors to offer consumers affordable and innovative gas detectors, meters and analyzers.

Today, the company designs, develops, manufactures and sources products that meet strict technical requirements.

Kiosk Manufacturer Association Announces PCI Compliance for Unattended Self-Service Kiosks

WESTMINSTER, Colo. -- The Kiosk Manufacturer Association (KMA), the leading unattended self-service kiosk association established in 1995, today announced the launch of new initiatives in the PCI Compliance space for unattended self-service kiosks. Those initiatives include providing content for the PCI Perspectives Blog, creating a SIG or Special Interest Group on PCI SSC for unattended and semi-attended transaction, as well as new guidepost content from our sponsors and members outlining best practices.

The kiosk association has a standing PCI Compliance committee and a Slack-based working group (free to join). Members include

OTI Global, Unattended Card Payments (UCP), Datacap Systems, Ingenico, KioWare, Olea Kiosks, Lilitab and Self-Service Networks who provide Cash2Card Giftwise.

"The pandemic is fundamentally altering the relationship that business and customer have had historically. Rather than the conventional 'push' from storefront to customer, the ratio of customers 'pulling' from business is rapidly increasing. Online mechanisms are no longer optional but instead, mandatory," says association spokesman, Craig Keefner. "Contactless and touchless are the new cornerstones. Shortening those transaction timeframes whether Drive-Thru or Text-to-pay are the new base metrics."

The pandemic impact on the currencies and payment methods involved in today's secure transaction has also expanded. Cash2Card deployments are rising and instead of the old Redbox DVDs at McDonalds you may soon have a new Bitcoin ATM Kiosks.

Technologies emerging and in-use include conversational artificial intelligence (AI) and all types of visual recognition systems (automobile license and facial examples given).

McGregor Pedals Introduces the Crunch Plus Overdrive

VANCOUVER, BC, Canada -- Boutique pedal company McGregor Pedals has launched its second pedal: The Crunch Plus overdrive. It follows on the heels of the McGregor's debut pedal, the Crunch Transparent Overdrive, a single-channel, low-gain overdrive pedal for guitar and bass, released in December 2019.

Designed and built by Garth Heslop, the brand new Crunch Plus pedal starts where the Crunch leaves off, building on the same circuit by adding a third gain stage and a second clipping stage. Beginning with the gain at minimum, the Crunch Plus pedal is similar to the Crunch Transparent Overdrive on 3/4 gain with a bit of an edge.

It never loses that edge as you bring up the gain. The Crunch Plus takes it to the next level while still maintaining the transparency you would expect from a McGregor Pedals overdrive pedal and is suitable for both guitar and bass.

See the Crunch Plus demo video here: https://youtu.be/8JEC1qE3i8Q

The Crunch Plus has a straightforward control set:
* Gain: This controls the amount of gain driving the pedal's hard clipping. Minimum setting is similar to the Crunch Transparent Overdrive on 3/4 gain with a bit of an edge. The Crunch Plus pedal never loses that edge, it builds on it as you bring up the gain.
* Tone: A mid-range control that works very much like the tone control on most guitars.
* Vol: This Attenuates the amplified and clipped signal after it leaves the tone filter.
* Trimpot on side of pedal (unmarked) controls LED Brightness: As someone who plays daytime outdoor shows, Garth Heslop wanted a super bright LED; however, this made it horrible to use in any other situation. The added trimpot allows you to vary the LED Brightness from dark stage to bright sun. Please make the adjustment gently using a jeweler's screwdriver.

Key Crunch Plus features:
* Hand soldered in Vancouver, Canada
* High grade components picked for their superior sound and response
* True bypass with soft-click switch
* Standard 9-volt DC center-negative power operation (no battery compartment)
* Top-mounted audio jacks and power input to help with packed pedal boards

The Crunch Drive is priced at $210 and can be purchased directly from the McGregor Pedals online store via https://www.mcgregorpedals.com/.

ViewTech Borescopes Gains Sales as Inspection Scope Demand Growth Continues

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- As countless industries have faced an economic crunch during the 2020 global pandemic, ViewTech Borescopes no-cost, no-obligation demo offer has allowed businesses to experience how a high-quality inspection video borescope can reduce inspection times, while improving inspection processes. Two of ViewTech Borescopes newest clients acquired during November business trialed the VJ-3 video borescope prior to ownership.

When the world's largest food packaging company needed to replace their weld and pipe quality inspection tools, ViewTech Borescopes was contacted. With their Midwest facility taking part in ViewTech's no-cost, no-obligation demo offer, the welding and quality assurance team quickly gained confidence in the industrial grade equipment investment. During the demo of a VJ-3 Dual Camera 6.0mm x 1.5-meter, it was determined that a longer insertion tube would be required and a total of five VJ-3 Dual Camera video borescopes with 3-meter insertion tubes were purchased and shipped. ViewTech VJ-3 video borescopes are now completing all weld integrity and foreign object debris (FOD) inspections.

A global fiber, resin, and intermediates company took advantage of ViewTech's demo opportunity when one of their current inspection scopes required an expensive repair. With a VJ-3 3.9mm x 3.0-meter shipped to a Canadian production facility; they began field testing the video borescope between two different departments. Impressed by the performance of the VJ-3, along with ViewTech Borescopes lowest lifetime ownership and repair costs, the demo video borescope on site was purchased to continue remote visual inspections (RVI) and nondestructive testing (NDT).

The VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope is a NDT instrument used for the RVI of machinery, equipment, and components. The VJ-3 facilitates the visual recording and photo documentation of inspection and components in areas that are otherwise inaccessible or require great effort and expense to access directly.

ViewTech Borescopes Exhibiting at 2020 NAAA Ag Aviation Expo

TRAVERSE City, Mich. -- ViewTech Borescopes will go back to exhibiting in-person for the first time since COVID-19 halted tradeshows. The 2020 National Agricultural Aviation Association Expo will be taking place December 7 - 10 at the Savannah Convention Center in Savannah, Georgia. ViewTech Senior Sales Consultant, Zach Wessels, will have several VJ-3 video borescopes on display for Ag Aviation Expo attendees, including the VJ-3 dual camera video borescope.

ViewTech Borescopes has been an exhibitor during the world's largest agricultural aviation convention and tradeshow since 2015. During the Ag Aviation Expo, ViewTech has been able to connect with ag pilots, aircraft maintenance technicians, and aerial application businesses.

This year ViewTech will have the following VJ-3 video borescope models available for attendees to trial at NAAA Ag Aviation Expo booth #424: the VJ-3 2.8mm, VJ-3 3.9mm, and VJ-3 6.0mm dual camera.

"Our VJ-3 video borescopes are so intuitive; they get put to use with hardly any learning curve," said Wessels. "The newest video borescope we offer, the VJ-3 dual camera, features both a forward-facing and 90-degree side-view camera. Inspectors will be able to capture images and videos at both camera angles by simply pushing a button."

With a large percentage of ViewTech's clientele based in the aviation and aerospace industries, they are consistently informed that the VJ-3 video borescope performs the heavy lifting for 99% of their clients' inspections, many of which entail viewing inside of critical components. By providing the best borescope option for their budget, ViewTech Borescopes have been saving companies time and money on their preventative maintenance and MRO inspections.

VJ-3 Video Borescope

The VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope is a nondestructive visual testing instrument used for the remote visual inspection of machinery, equipment, and components. The VJ-3 facilitates the visual recording and photo documentation of an inspection and components in areas that are otherwise inaccessible or require great effort and expense to access directly. The VJ-3 consists of two modules integrated into one system: an insertion tube with distally mounted camera/LEDs, and the base unit with control panel, LCD monitor, power source and all necessary circuitry.
