The latest products from around the industry
The MikroScan 7400 thermal camera can be used for standard predictive maintenance monitoring of electrical cabinets, motors, and bearings. The camera features three selectable temperature ranges and is built around a high-resolution (320 × 240 pixels) microbolometer that resolves an area smaller than a tenth of a square inch at 6 ft. It also captures simultaneous visual images with on-board voice annotation. In addition to its on-board image storage capability, the camera can output real-time video in “S” format and NTSC/PAL.
The StorageMaster HD rolling work benches feature the company's patented Watchman IV single-lock deadbolt system. Available in six models, each rolling work bench features a recessed lock housing to prevent the use of bolt cutters, pry bars, and hack saws from potential thieves. The product line's one-lock system is designed to eliminate downtime in replacing additional locks, and both the worktop and cabinet bottom are made of 7-gauge steel. All models have a load capacity up to 2,700 lbs and a drawer capacity up to 100 lbs.
The 5000 Series of analog meters is designed to be cost-effective. Requiring no power, these meters are available in custom scales and will monitor from PLC or transducer. Featuring dust-resistant construction, the units are made with UL 94V material and offer ordered-to-fit mounting studs at no extra cost. All models are 2,600Vrms with 90° rotation and meet ANSI specifications C39.1.

This family of 5kV and 10kV insulation testers includes three analog/digital models. The base model has five pre-programmed test voltages and measures to 15 TΩ on the digital scale. The next model features all the capability of the base mode plus a pass/fail alarm, data storage and downloading, and the ability to step up the voltage in 10V increments from 50V to 1,000V and in 25V increments beyond 1,000V. The top-of-the-line model includes all the capabilities of the other two plus a 10,000V range — and the ability to measure to 35 TΩ on the digital scale.
This company's new tapping tool product line includes three new Cushion-Grip triple taps and one new Cushion-Grip six-in-one tap. All four tapping tools form new threads, reform burred or damaged threads, clean out obstructions, and automatically re-thread to the next larger size if threads are stripped. Each triple tap tool accommodates three tap sizes, and the six-in-one tap tool accommodates six tap sizes.
The Plug & Play OSP system is designed to allow for quicker and more cost-effective installations in the outside plant local area network (LAN). The system includes an optical cable pre-installed with network access points at customer-specified intervals and a tethered, environmentally hardened MT connector. Compatible with both below-ground and aerial applications, it features MT network access points attached to a flat drop tether cable that is terminated with an MT connector.

Lighting control module
The ECS BACnet interface module is designed to integrate the company's ECS lighting control system with any BACnet-compatible building automation system, including HVAC, security, and fire. The interface module allows the building lighting system to operate autonomously, while sharing operational parameters with BACnet-compatible clients via BACnet/IP. The integrated building automation system can be managed and controlled in real time over the Internet.
The 2880B dual display, 51,000 count hand-held digital multimeter features true rms AC volts and amps capability. Useful for troubleshooting complex electrical and electronic circuits, the DMM includes a five-digit LCD for both primary and secondary displays, a 21-segment analog bar graph, and an automatic polarity indicator. It measures resistance up to 50MΩ, conductance up to 50nS with 0.01nS resolution, capacitance up to 100mF, and frequency up to 20 MHz, with AC volts measurement.
Double-throw safety switch
The Cutler-Hammer brand Quick-Connect double-throw safety switch is designed to provide a safe and efficient way to connect mobile generators or portable equipment rated from 30A to 800A to a facility's electrical system. The safety switch is a manual device consisting of two interlocked switches that cannot be on at the same time. The switches are vertically oriented — the upper switch is the “normal” switch, and the lower switch is the “backup power” switch.
These side-mount kits for the company's Cabinet Coolers are designed to provide convenient mounting to the side of an electrical enclosure for applications where top mounting is not possible due to limited space. The kits are suitable for use on large or small electrical enclosures with Cabinet Coolers that have cooling capacities up to 2,800 Btu/hr. Their applications include programmable controllers, variable-frequency drives, industrial computers, motor controls, microprocessors, and robotics.
The Q-Tie is a patented cable tie featuring an open lock head and an advanced track system. Designed for quick and easy installation, the cable tie's top-loading system enables blind mounting. Its pre-lock system allows for temporary mounting before the tie is locked into place.
Blunt-tip safety blades
These bi-metal blunt-tip safety blades are made using a patented welding process that fuses together two different types of steel. The blades can bend without breaking because of the flexible spring steel used to form the backing material. Their edges are formed from high-speed steel, and they feature a 90° blade junction to reduce the risk of accidental puncture wounds. The blades are configured with the industry standard two-notch design, which will fit most utility knives.
The HDR heavy-duty relay is a panel relay that exceeds the new UL508 requirements for controlling electronic ballast lighting loads. Included with all of the company's lighting control panels, the relay features heavy-duty contacts made with special alloys to mitigate the negative effects of inrush currents and is rated up to 300,000 cycles. It also features a mechanically latching contact design to ensure the lighting remains on during a power outage.
Test terminal blocks
The WTL 4/2 STB disconnect test terminal blocks make it possible to open the bus bar in the terminal and for the adapter to make contact with a single action, assuring continuous operation of the circuit during the test procedure. With this disconnect test terminal block, the order in which disconnect and contact is made is determined by the length of the color-coded plastic log on the test adapters. It features a touch-safe design, and its combination-foot makes it suitable for TS-32 and TS-35 DIN rail mounting.
The Allen-Bradley Powermonitor 1000 is a power monitoring device that profiles a plant's energy consumption and usage data, providing manufacturers with information to better control and optimize energy costs. This power monitor is designed for basic applications, such as load profiling and cost allocation. It can be scaled to provide advanced capabilities, including wiring diagnostics, historical trending, and advanced networking. The monitor is available in five models — two transducers and three energy monitors — with features and price points addressing a wide range of requirements.
Load control device
The E-Mon D-Mon Class 3000 meter is now offered with a load control option designed to operate at user-selectable high and low set points. By proper selection of the high kW limit set point, the Class 3000 meter can be used to decrease electrical demand peaks by shedding loads or activating a local generator. The low kW limit set point allows the load to be returned to normal operating power independently as pre-set parameters are met. Load control functions are programmed via four buttons located inside the meter enclosure. A three-screw removable terminal block allows for connection to the controlled load.
