RadioShack- Audio Video Electronics



Some things you can find there -CB & Ham radios, Walkie-talkie (GMRS/FRS) radios and Shortwave & multiband radios



The company was started as Radio Shack in 1921 in Boston, Massachusetts, by two brothers, Theodore and Milton Deutschmann, who wanted to provide equipment for the cutting-edge field of amateur, or ham radio.



Theodore and Milton Deutschmann opened a one-store retail and mail-order operation in the heart of downtown Boston. They chose the name, "Radio Shack," which was a term for the small, wooden structure that housed a ship's radio equipment. The Deutschmanns thought the name was appropriate for a store that would supply the needs of radio officers aboard ships, as well as "ham" radio operators.

This Safety Trip Alarm performs as a logic solver and acts on potentially hazardous process conditions; warns of unwanted process conditions; provides emergency shutdown; or provides on/off control in Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) and traditional alarm trip applications.



Safety Instrumented Systems - Moore Industries



The STA features a metal, RFI/EMI resistant housing with display that snaps onto standard DIN-style rails.



A Safety Instrumented System (SIS) is defi ned as an instrumented system used to implement one or more Safety Instrumented Functions (SIF). A SIS is composed of any combination of sensors, logic solvers (such as the STA) and fi nal elements.
