Smoke detector

Acclimate Plus is a multi-criteria technology smoke detector that balances stability and early warning to maximize fire detection while rejecting unwanted nuisance alarms. Proprietary technology allows it to respond to a broad range of fires. Its dual-stage drift compensation feature reduces maintenance by notifying the control panel when dust buildup requires attention. Its smoke detection sensitivity increases with heat, eliminating the need to set sensitivity levels at the panel.

Pocket-sized infrared thermometer

The model 403265 infrared thermometer features a built-in laser pointer to improve aim. Infrared readings range from — 4°F to 1,022°F with 1° resolution. The readings display on a 3 ½ digit backlit LCD. An audible alarm sounds when temperature exceeds the programmable high and low setpoints. Emissivity is adjustable from 0.1 to 1.0. Features include auto hold, narrow field of view, and auto power off.

Industrial fluorescent fixtures

The HBS100 series of fluorescent fixtures provides the clean white light of today's high intensity, narrow diameter fluorescent lamps in a design that evenly distributes light from the source to the work surface. It provides consistent illumination over its 20,000-hr life and eliminates shadows on high warehouse shelves by lighting horizontally and vertically.

Ground-fault detector

The Resilient remotely measures load voltage and detects leakage current between 2mA and 300mA. It supports 110V to 480VAC on circuits to 50A. Ground-fault detectors, lighting sensors, and power meters transmit their data via power line carrier to a data logger, which preprocesses the data and relays it to a server via landline, wireless, or Ethernet communications media.

Addressable fire alarm control panel

The FireSeeker model FS-100 is a small fire alarm system designed for standalone applications in small- to medium-sized facilities. It supports a series of photoelectric, thermal, and photo/thermal combination detectors developed for the system. As many as 60 addressable inputs are available on the unit. Operating controls and indicators are secured behind a locked door.

Optical beam smoke detector

Combining an infrared transmitter and receiver in one unit, Fireray Reflective needs less cabling than two-part detectors. The unit projects an infrared beam onto a small reflector on the opposite wall. The transmitter/receiver analyzes the returned beam for smoke presence. Automatic drift compensation prevents unwanted alarms caused by dust or slight building movement. It can distinguish between obstructions like smoke and flying insects.

Lighting streamers

Heavy-duty lighting streamers provide temporary overhead lighting for indoor and outdoor applications. Sockets spaced at 10 ft with a 5-ft lead and tail are molded in solid Hypalon rubber and attached to a heavy-duty SOW-A cable. A rubber O ring forms a watertight seal around each lamp neck, to eliminate problems associated with oil, dirt, and moisture. Optional heavy-duty guards provide protection for streamer sockets and are available in red, vinyl-coated steel or crushproof clear lexan.

Motor drive

The Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 7000 “A” Frame air-cooled medium-voltage drive uses symmetrical gate commutated thyristors, which lower conduction and switching losses, reduce total component count, and increase reliability. It features sensorless-vector control, which provides the kind of torque seen in DC drives. It maintains near unity power factor and produces sinusoidal voltage and current waveforms, eliminating the need for an inverter-duty motor.

Security system

VIDOS provides video monitoring, alarm management, recording functions, and automatic camera switching. It supports a hardware receiver connection, Windows, and Linux. All relevant maps and alarm plans are automatically called up whenever an alarm is triggered. It can process as many as 16 video signals at once and records all relevant data to its hard drive. It also allows several users access to the same picture data simultaneously.

Circuit breaker monitoring device

The OPTImizer+ issues alarms and supplies a data history of breaker operations. It helps extend the life of power circuit breakers by quantifying a breaker's operating characteristic and providing alarming and trending as programmed by the operator. It has field-adjustable data collection parameters and an optional protocol converter for communications. Installation is noninvasive.

Floodlights for flagpoles

The PM series of parabolic medium floodlights illuminates flags displayed at heights as high as 25 ft. The PN series of parabolic narrow floodlights provides an even narrower beam and projects light a greater distance with more intensity — for flags flown at the same height. The L Series, which includes rectangular versions of these fixtures, provides the same illumination in lower wattages.
