Surge protector tells electricians when it's spent

The Smart Module surge protectors for low-voltage applications allows for snap-in, non-hard-wiring installation. An indicator light tells service technicians and end-users when it needs replacing, after the unit has sacrificed itself to protect other devices. The module can be replaced, without tools or test equipment. The protector is for security, life safety and low-voltage applications. The module can be removed and replaced easily, without troubleshooting or testing. This reduces the chance of incorrect wiring. Ditek

Power transformer employs circular process

The O-Core toroidal power transformer core employs a process patented by Nippon Core. It uses a silicon steel strip, gradually pointed towards the end, replacing the constant width strip used in traditional toroidal transformer cores. As a result, the cross section of the O-core is circular like an O-ring, rather than square or rectangular, like the traditional toroidal core. Alpha-Core Inc.
