Clamp meters

The Fluke 353 and Fluke 355 true-rms clamp meters measure up to 2,000A of DC and 1,400A of AC current and have a 600V CAT IV and 1,000 CAT III rating. In addition, the meters feature a mode for measuring inrush current. The Fluke 355 measures voltage to 1,000VDC and 600VAC and resistance to 400 kΩ with a continuity beeper, allowing users to perform multiple tests with only one tool. Both meters include a backlit display as well as a display-hold feature to capture readings. They also measure frequency up to 1 kHz for troubleshooting applications, feature min, max, and AVG functions for analyzing readings, and a low-pass filter.

Tension ties/tools

Pan-Steel stainless steel retained tension ties and tools are available in standard, light heavy, and heavy cross-sections with two design options. The MRT Series clamp design provides tight fastening of rigid materials in high vibration and harsh environments. For fluid applications, the MRS Series' 360° seal design eliminates gaps under the head of the tie. Both styles feature a self-locking cable tie design that locks into place at any length along the tie body. In addition, retained tension tools feature a robust tie tensioning mechanism and a smooth cut-off.

UL-listed Amp-Trap 2000 A4BQ 100-600A fuses are for applications that require Class L fuse dimensions with ampere ratings of less than 601. Suitable for branch circuit protection, the fuses are designed for one-way interchangeability, meaning a Class L fuse of any lower ampere rating can be substituted for a given Class L fuse. In addition, the devices provide overcurrent protection for service entrance equipment, large motors, feeders, and other circuits. According to the company, the fuses also reduce the magnitude and duration of faults.

Servo motors

Capable of delivering peak torques of up to 33.63 lb-in., the BSM R-Series of brushless AC servo motors is packaged in 1.6-in.2 and 2.4-in.2 bodies. In addition, users can choose from one or two winding stacks, offering a selection of continuous stall torque ratings that span 1.4 lb-in. to 11.24 lb-in. and peak torques from 4.25 lb-in. to 33.63 lb-in. The smallest one-stack motor measures 1.6 in.2 × 2.32 in. long and weighs 0.88 lb. Power and feedback connections to the motors are made by long flying leads. Users can also specify motors with a resolver or 2,000 PPR encoder fitted for positional feedback.

Resistive load banks

These custom-built AC-DC resistive load banks are enclosed in a rack mount/bench top chassis from 25W to 30kW in a single chassis. If needed, three of the 30kW loads can be combined to create a 90kW load. According to the company, all load requirements can be accommodated, including AC, DC, single-phase and 3-phase, 1% or 5% resistor tolerances, power factor loads configured with remote or manual operation, multiple input, control, meters, or any other customer option.

Low-voltage switchgear

Entellisys 4.0 low-voltage switchgear's new high-resistant ground fault (HRGF) feature identifies the location of the feeder breaker circuit where the ground fault exists with no added hardware. In addition, the switchgear's architecture minimizes wiring and shipping split terminations by reducing the amount of wiring in equipment — in some cases up to 70%, according to the company. The company says it has streamlined the remote communication integration process to use one interface for the entire lineup.

PoE range extender

The BWRE-100 Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) range extender is designed for use in wireless LANs (WLANs). When used with the company's wireless solution, the device injects a re-energized signal between the wireless switch and the access point (AP) using bi-directional input and output ports located on the extender. According to the company, this enables users to install the APs at a distance of up to 200 m from the wireless switch using Cat. 5e, Cat. 6, or 10G cable. Installation options include horizontal shelf or vertical wall mount.
