Voltage logger captures short-term events

The Model L215 dSimple Logger ata logger captures such short-term events as sags, swells and dropouts. The logger samples the input 10 times per second and only stores the data when an alarm threshold is crossed, thus maximizing use of memory. The 65,000-point storage capacity provides enough memory to store more than 1,000 events. A Windows-based software package is included. AEMC Instruments

Tool speeds datacom wire stripping

The Roto-Spin tool simplifies and speeds stripping of round communication cables including fiber-optic, Cat. 5 and datacom. Suitable for stripping electric cable as well, the lightweight hand tool features a swiveling blade to ring and straight cut cable jackets from 0.16 in. to 60 in. diameter in one easy operation. An innovative rotating cam is used to precisely set blade penetration. An adjustable stop with scales in inches and millimeters allows cables to be stripped to the same length every time. A clamping “V” with two positions accepts large and small diameter cables. Cutting blades are easily replaced with blade storage provided in the cable stop. Once the tool is adjusted, the cable is inserted to the stop; the tool is then rotated and pulled. The jacket can be easily peeled off. The blade rotates on itself thanks to a friction-free precision ball bearing. Seatek

HID metal-halide ballasts provide dual-wattage lamp operation

The e-Vision family of electronic ballasts operate low-wattage metal-halide (MH) high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps. The Initial e-Vision offering includes two ballast models that cover operation of 35W, 50W, 70W and 100W metal-halide lamps. The ballast features dual-wattage lamp operation and Illellivolt, which allows the ballast to operate with any nominal input voltage from 120V to 277V, 50Hz or 60Hz, helping fixture manufacturers cover voltage applications with far fewer stock-keeping units (SKUs).
