Time to "Cut the Cord"... INTRODUCING A new wireless breakthrough that eliminates coil cords and retracting reels... MEL transmitter/receiver eliminates the need to hardwire a monitored edge sensor to the door operator. Attach MEL to currently Listed UL325 commercial door operators - when the edge sensor is activated, MEL sends a wireless signal to the operator to reverse. • MEL MONITORS: constantly for a loss of signal transmission or fault in the system • MEL IS UNIVERSAL: no separate module required Use with any monitored Sensing Edge Use with non-monitored ancillary Sensing Edges Use with nearly every commercial door operator P.O.

They have completely taken training and education to new level. From dealer accreditation to individual technician certifcation, one can learn the right way to operate a successful business and install or service virtually any product that is on the market today. We should all give ourselves a pat on the back. What we are doing is working. We are getting the message out and people are responding. Think back some years ago. Remember how we conducted training compared to what it is today. The changes are quite amazing if you ask me. On the job training remains to be very effective, but new resources that are available enhance and give credence to the importance of doing things the right way and above all, doing it in a way that is safe. Now that our economy is showing signs of recovery, we should be ready to reap the benefts. There are more new homes being built, and commercial construction is on its way back. Replacement doors will be in higher demand and residential and commercial customers will always have service and repair needs. It's time to really get excited about where we are heading. I for one could not be more optimistic about the next three to fve years. You could feel this optimism present at the 2013 IDAExpo. The doom and gloom has been replaced by excitement and promise for better days ahead. I'm sure that if you were in attendance, you no doubt feel the same way.
