Motor circuit controller simplifies installations

The high-current-limiting and breaking capacities of the KT7 motor circuit controller have earned both UL and CSA's listing as a self-protected (Construction Type E) manual combination motor controller. This listing enables the KT7 to serve as short-circuit protection, overload protection and the motor disconnect on motor branch circuits, eliminating the need for more equipment. The Construction Type E rating also eliminates the NEC 430-53 rules involved in typical multi-motor applications. Panel design is simplified, and safely reduced in size. Sprecher + Schuh

Devices trace unenergized wires

Two Wire Tracker devices (GET-4110K and GET-4220) trace unenergized, installed wires or cables, and can distinguish between multiple wire terminations. Application-specific plugs are built into the transmitter to easily connect to coaxial cables, telephone wiring, Cat. 5 data cables, unenergized electrical wiring or automotive wiring. Additional features include an adjustable sensitivity control allowing for precise detection of multiple wires; detection of unshielded wires behind walls, floors and ceilings up to 12 inches; and a warbling tone to differentiate transmitter signal from other signals. A transmitter stores into the receiver for easy carrying. Gardner Bender
