Heat shrink tubing
Capable of continuous operation in 500°F, PTFE 4:1 heat shrink tubing has a thin wall for installation over irregular shapes, fittings, and other protrusions. The tubing provides a non-stick surface and resists most chemicals, solvents, water, and acids. It's available in diameter sizes from 1.98 mm to 2 in. and can be supplied spooled or cut to length.
Made of steel with a black finish, the VPC3106 series 3-phase vertical power distribution units (PDU) provide 72A of output power at 120V single phase. The PDUs measure 68 in. tall without the mounting brackets and 70 in. tall with the standard brackets installed. They come with a 3-phase 120V/208V, 30A, NEMA L21-30P input power connector and a 15-ft power cable.
Arktite CSR interlocked receptacles are available fused or non-fused in 30A, 60A, and 100A versions. The receptacles feature a fiber-reinforced enclosure, a cover break line, and a direct-drive interlock. Epoxy-coated and made of cast aluminum, they're UL- and cUL-Listed and have a NEMA 4X watertight and IP66 rating.
Electrical calculation watch
Designed for electrical professionals, these analog watches are loaded with electrical information like Ohm's law, power equation formulas, and resistor band charts for AC or DC applications.

Gel-free optical cables
A gel-free optical cable design is now available in this manufacturer's ALTOS, SST-Ribbon, and FREEDM cable lines. Instead of gel, the cables are filled with dry waterblocking tapes and yarns that use super-absorbent polymer technology.
Corning Cable Systems
The Enterprise Device manager is a Web-based program that allows users to monitor and control hundreds of devices from a single location. It features real-time alarm monitoring; a Macromedia Flash interface; a hierarchy structure that groups the devices by location, type, or function; and reporting capability like event logs and inventory.

Port DeviceNet block
These blocks offer 14 DeviceNet nodes in footprints that are the same or smaller than existing 8-port blocks. When they're combined with ultra-thin DeviceNet cordsets, more connections can be put into a single trunk cable connection. The cordsets enable an M8 male connector to be connected to the passive network block with an M12 female connector for interfacing with DeviceNet field devices, which allows users to have a high-density intercom system without changing existing devices.
Designed for hazardous areas, SM series safety mats are pressure sensitive. The mats are custom-built to the exact dimensions required for installation and feature a non-slip, heavy-duty surface. They come with aluminum trim and can be secured to any floor with screws.
The R1L-E2 ohmmeter/bonding meter provides safe measurement of mechanical and electrical bonds in explosive environments. The meters have ATEX directive, UL, CSA, and CE markings.
Available in panel- or surface-mount models, the series 187 marine-rated thermal circuit breaker is a Type 3 manual reset style breaker with a switching function. It's available in ratings from 25A to 150A and features overall interrupt ratings of 5kA at 12V, 3kA at 24V, 2kA at 36V, and 1kA at 48V; 5/16-18 electrical termination studs, and mounting hole clearance for use with 5-mm or 10-32 screws.
Available in seven models, the EICP series Ethernet switches can be powered from wide-range, low-voltage AC or DC power sources. The switches come in copper and fiber models, and each port has an LED that shows link/activity/data rate by color. Eight auto-MDI/X ports are available on the EICP9-100T for attaching local devices or for use as an uplink port.
The LightSaver LS-301 is a ceiling-mount, low-voltage indoor photosensor that comes with infrared handheld remote controls. The photosensor works with a 0VDC to 10VDC electronic dimming ballast and features an internal photocell that reports daylight and electric light illuminance through a spectral curve that matches the photopic curve.
