Circle 250Billing software
The T&M Billing software package includes built-in material pricing that can be updated instantaneously using the company's e-catalogs. Users can store information about materials, labor, and tools for later generation and assignment of work orders. The program will then generate invoices that include a description of the job performed, materials used, labor hours, and amount owed. The software is PDA-compatible.
Circle 251Dimming ballast
The Mark X Powerline dimming ballast is designed for the operation of 32W or 42W triple compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). The ballast will also provide one-lamp operation of 57W and 70W triple CFLs. The units provide programmed-start operation for optimized lamp life in frequent-starting conditions. It will also provide lamp ignition at any light setting, including the 5% dim level. In addition, its ability to operate above 40kHz minimizes the risk of interference problems.
