FasTest Introduces Revolutionary SMART Technology for CGA 580 Connector

SMART Technology CGA 580Minneapolis, MN—March 30, 2016—FasTest, Inc. introduces new SMART Technology for its standard CGA-580 connectors. The new technology provides operators with a visual verification that a positive connection has been made and that it is safe to begin the filling process. Each connector with SMART Technology is equipped with LED lights that changes color depending on the connector’s connection status: red – fully disconnected, orange – partially connected, green – fully connected.

FasTest’s SMART Technology is also easily integrated into automated or manual filling processes. Each connector uses an electrical output signal to relay connection status to a hub device that compiles the status of each individual connector. The hub device analyzes each input and only allows the operator to begin the filling process once all connections have been properly made. “We created this technology to make the filling process safer and more efficient for operators using our CGA connectors,” said Matthew Nolting, Compressed Gas National Sales Manager. “We believe our SMART technology will revolutionize the filling process and we look forward to continuing to incorporate the technology into our wide range of connectors for the gas filling industry.”
