Gear Keeper® Retractable Tool Lanyard Systems meet IAQG, NAFPI and NCATT Foreign Object Elimination (FOE) standards for securing loose tools

plaatjeAviation and aerospace safety engineers concerned with Foreign Object Elimination (FOE) can choose from an extensive array of Gear Keeper stock and custom tethering systems.

Virtually eliminating a tool left behind, aviation maintenance and repair service employees can use the tool and then let it go as it safely returns to Gear Keeper’s secure tool storage position.

A tool inadvertently left behind during a maintenance or repair service has the potential to bring down a plane. At best it can cause repairs, flight delays, plane changes and fuel inefficiencies. Internationally, Foreign Object Damage (FOD) costs the aviation industry about Euro,00 per year in direct and indirect costs. A recent Insight SRI survey4 indicated that 300 of the world’s largest airports, which collectively service about 55 million aircraft movements per year, have reported more than 60,000 FOD incidents. Fortunately, many of these instances can be virtually eliminated by a Gear Keeper retractable tool tethering system that will prevent anyone from leaving a tool behind.

Aviation and aerospace safety engineers concerned with Foreign Object Elimination (FOE) can choose from an extensive array of Gear Keeper stock and custom tethering systems. Manufactured in the U.S.A. by Hammerhead Industries, the Gear Keeper line of tool and instrument tethering systems is the world’s largest and most comprehensive. With over 3.000 different lanyards and retractable tethering configurations, a Gear Keeper system will fit virtually every aviation/aerospace tool or application.

The patented Gear Keeper Retractor is at the core of an extensive product line utilizing four different retractors from light to heavy duty. Each of the retractor mechanisms is engineered for retraction forces that are balanced for the weight of the tool being used. The result is effortless extension and retraction without arm strain or harmful “snap-back.” An employee can use the tool and then let it go as it safely and automatically returns to Gear Keeper’s secure tool position.

The modular Gear Keeper system has an impressive array of benefits and features including; lanyard lengths from 70 to 107 cm, patented self-flushing system (that clears sand and debris), salt-water proof, withstands high-temperature environments, keeps tools close to the body thereby avoiding potential entanglement issues and a ratcheting gear that minimizes lanyard length and arm strain. There is also a large selection of mounting options for attaching the lanyard to the user including a 360° Rotating Belt Clip Mount, Threaded Stud Mount, Heavy Duty Snap Clip Mount, Velcro Strap Mount and Epaulet Mount.

Butel Software, established in 1999 by Gommert Buijsen, is the leading manufacturer for scanner software in the world.
They produce software for Uniden-Bearcat models in Europe and USA, but also for brands like AOR, ICOM and others.

Avera is distributor of the complete range of scanner software made by Butel Software from The Netherlands.

Let us have a look at one of the most popular software programs sold now-a-days, the ARC125.

ARC125: The programming software for the (U)BC125 XLT scanners.

The UBC125XLT is a nice and compact scanner that can store up to 500 memory channels. To make it easy to program the 500 memories the ARC125 programming software was developed by Butel Software.

ARC125 has a very friendly spreadsheet like user interface. This makes it very easy to program new frequencies in the UBC125XLT scanner.

You can easily cut/copy/paste data. You can also import frequency data from any website using the intelligent ‘Paste frequencies’ option.

Channels can be inserted, deleted and sorted using the menu options. But you can also easily swap/copy/move entire banks.
You can store an unlimited number of frequency files.
Uploading to the scanner is fast and smooth using the USB port.

ARC125 comes with a driver for the European UBC125XLT and the US version BC125XLT. After installing the driver, ARC125 will automatically detect the (U)BC125 scanner. ARC125 is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8.
