Dia de los Muertos!
Here at BWI Eagle, we never miss a good opportunity to have some fun! We celebrated Halloween and Dia de los Muertos (the Mexican Day of the Dead holiday) with costumes, good food, and of course, lots of laughs.
Our neighbors from the business next door, Eagle Printery, joined us for lunch and helped us vote on the best costumes. Prizes were awarded to the winners in the following categories...
The winner for "Prettiest Costume" was Crystal with "Cleopatra".
The winner for "Scariest Costume" was Lauren with "Mad Scientist".
The winner for "Most Original Costume" was Char with "Operation Game". Char also won our Facebook Costume Contest!
And, the winner for "Best Overall Costume" was Rosie with "Bell Hop".
Congratulations to our winners!

We Did It! We Escaped!
We all like working together at BWI Eagle. And, we like playing together, too!
BWI employees and our guests got together for some after-hours fun earlier this month. We had a great time searching for clues, solving puzzles and racing against the clock at Mystery Mayhem Escapes.
The gang split into two teams. After some good-natured teasing and trash talking from both sides, "Team Alice" dived down the rabbit hole into Alice's Wonderscape. "Team Meat" was handcuffed in pairs before being thrown into the dark and sinister Butcher Shoppe. The timers were set and the race for survival (or bragging rights) was on!
Team Alice worked together like practiced professionals right from the start. Puzzles were solved and mysteries were revealed at a startling pace. Team Alice escaped the room with 5 minutes to spare!
Team Meat was off to a slow start, stumbling around in the dark, handcuffed together. Luckily, flashlights were soon found. The next lucky break was the discovery of handcuff keys. After everyone was uncuffed, they got down to business, and started making up for lost time. Team Meat finally broke out with only three minutes left on the clock!
After everyone was free (and Team Alice boasted about their win), we all gathered for a group photo before heading to My Brother's Place for dinner, a few drinks, and lots of laughs.

Did you know? You can customize your buttons on our remote controls? We'll print whatever you want on them, in your favorite colors, often at no extra cost. Because the printing is protected by the overlay it will not smear or fade over time. Ask about 'Custom Buttons' when you place your order.

Happy 60th Birthday, Rosie!
BWI Eagle celebrated another milestone birthday for one of our favorite people!
Rosie can almost always be found in the stockroom stocking shelves and managing inventory...
But, she took a break today to enjoy some cake and have a few laughs with her BWI Eagle coworkers to celebrate her birthday.
Fun fact about working at BWI Eagle: Everyone wears the birthday crown or birthday tiarra on their birthday. Everyone. No exceptions.

Happy 50th Birthday, John!
BWI Eagle is celebrating our Product Engineer John's 50th birthday today!
When he arrived at work this morning, John was greeted with an office full of birthday balloons and some good-hearted jokes at his expense. Good thing John has a good sense of humor about being "over the hill".
After putting up with our "old-man" jokes all day, we tried to make it up to John with some birthday cheese cake and a card signed by the entire BWI Eagle Team.
Happy Birthday, John!

Introducing Our Newly Redesigned Eagle/Optima Systems!
Our ever-popular Eagle and Optima product lines of Critical Speed Switches have been updated with some exciting new benefits.
Like our traditional models, the new Eagle and Optima units monitor speed and detect motion in all types of rotating electrical apparatus. The flexibility of one to three independent channels have always allowed for a variety of control functions to meet virtually any application requirement for under-speed or zero-speed detection from 6 RPM up to 800 RPM.
Some of the exciting advantages to our new design include:
- Fiberglass windowed NEMA 4 Enclosure – higher NEMA rating, now water tight, not prone to rust/corrosion like old NEMA 12 enclosure.
- All components sealed inside enclosure---window allows for visual confirmation of operation without having LED lights exposed to the elements.
- Same size enclosure for 1, 2 and now 3 channel units – same footprint means no more re-drilling if additional monitoring channels are required.
- All common speed ranges are included. On-board “DIP” switches allow 1 model to cover multiple application speeds.
- Speed calibration LEDS improved for easy setup at any speed.
- “First Out” capability now available in the 3-channel model.
