The Wire Processing Technology Expo is always a great place to see new products, and the 2016 show was no exception. When visiting our vendors, we were almost overwhelmed by sea of new parts, however there were a few that stood out from the pack.
Last week, Waytek attended the National Electrical Wire Processing Technology Expo in Milwaukee, WI. As always, it was a great opportunity to network, catch some seminars and see some familiar faces.

So many of our vendors produce such high-quality educational videos that we have decided to start featuring our favorites.
Sometimes you need the most advanced gear out there, other times you just need to get the job done for the lowest price available.

Modern commercial vehicles have more auxiliary units drawing battery power than ever before. In the past, when vehicles were powered off, all electrical loads were also, but many of today's commercial trucks require electricity full time, especially those with sleeper cabs.
For this reason, low voltage demands are a greater concern of fleet managers than ever before, as the increased loads can cause stalls and breakdowns at unexpected moments, costing time and money for fleets.
Enter battery management to the rescue. Learn what components you need to keep from draining batteries and stalling vehicles.
