New product datasheets on our website

Following several months of hard work, we’ve managed to implement a new system for the automated generation and updating of the datasheets of all the products we have on our website.

For customers and users of the Escubedo website, this development means datasheets with clearer and better organised information. By way of example, whereas until now the maximum current value was only available for references, it will now be shown for every finished product. Furthermore, the regulations fulfilled by the product in question will be displayed individually and more clearly. In order to make it more straightforward for users to read data, we’ve converted our old table of compatibilities into a list and given the graphs a less cluttered look.

Another development is that all our connectors will soon have their own datasheets.

Internally, the fact that product datasheets can be generated automatically and massively from our website database is a huge development that will save us a lot of time that can be devoted instead to providing our customers with even better service.

We’re currently in the process of updating our datasheets and hope to have them available for viewing and downloading within a few weeks.

 

Oxfam Trailwalker Girona 2018: challenge completed!

 

We’re very proud of the excellent work done by Rubén Sarabia, Joan Rota, Manu Cortés, Jordi Feliu, Josep Marín and Vanessa Roura (our team of walkers) and by Jordi Galí and Marta Tugas (our support team) in the Oxfam Trailwalker Girona 2018, which took place this weekend. At 10 am on Saturday, 230 teams set off from Olot, heading towards Sant Feliu de Guíxols along the Girona Narrow-Gauge Railway Route, with 209 teams reaching the finishing line. The challenge was to complete the 100-km route in less than 32 hours. The Escubedo team managed it with plenty of time to spare: it only needed 25 hours, 19 minutes and 30 seconds!

That means that the 1,500 euros raised will go towards projects such as installing a flexible device to bring clean, safe water to 134 families in a situation of emergency. The goal of the event this year is to provide 844 million people with easier access to drinking water so that they no longer have to walk several kilometres each day to obtain it. It’s a great charity project that has made participating in the challenge and all the preparation that has gone into it over the last few months very worthwhile. Congratulations colleagues!

We must mention the fact that one of the participant’s in this year’s Oxfam Trailwalker Girona tragically died of a heart attack. We’d like to offer our deepest sympathy to his family, friends and team-mates.
