Made from hardened steel, they are equipped with an integrated ratchet that allows the tools to open only when the crimping process has been completed.
The LS-301 dimming photosensor features a sliding setpoint control algorithm that allows the controller to compensate for the disparate spatial distribution of daylight and electric light. Able to control standard 0VCD to 10VDC electronic dimming ballasts, adjustments are made using an intuitive remote control. An optional occupant remote control permits the automatic lighting level to be temporarily overridden without changing the setpoints.
The Fluke 113 utility multimeter features a low-impedance measurement function that allows users to simultaneously test for voltage or continuity.

This Type 4X stainless steel wall-mount enclosure features a white polyester powder finish inside and out to reduce solar radiation and keep internal temperatures up to 10° lower that traditional stainless steel enclosures in identical environments, according to the company. The single-door enclosure also features continuously welded, ground smooth seams (with no holes or knockouts), and its data pocket is constructed of high-impact thermoplastic. In addition, the unit includes the company's Type 316L stainless steel small Powerglide Padlocking Handle with internal 3-point latching.
The Evolution Series of poke-thru devices features a flush, all-metal cover assembly with spring-loaded slide cable egress doors. In addition, the devices use 6-in. and 8-in. holes that allow them to be recessed below a finished floor level. The 8AT model uses an 8-in. core hole and provides up to four gangs of power, communication, and/or A/V capability. The 6AT model is designed for a 6-in. core hole and provides up to 2½ gangs of power, communication, and/or A/V capability. This model is also available as a furniture feed device. UL fire classified, both models maintain the fire rating of the floor slab for up to 2 hr.
The 920XC handheld OTDR performs cable acceptance testing measuring loss and distance to all events on the fiber span (connectors and splices) as well as span loss. Measurement results can be transferred to a PC for documentation of cable acceptance testing. In addition, the instrument's auto test mode allows users to connect the fiber and automatically get the distance to the fiber fault. Other product features include a protective rubber boot and a sealed membrane panel run/stop button. Menu functions for settings and trace store and recall are also available.
