Lighting timer

This new unit turns outdoor lighting on at dusk and off at midnight. The off time can be adjusted for as many as 2 hr before or after midnight. It automatically tracks the dusk and dawn times as they vary with the seasons to determine midnight each day, corrects for daylight saving time, and resets its timer after power outages.

Insulation tester

The model 5060 digital/analog megohmmeter provides insulation measurements to 10,000 Giga-ohm. Test results include dielectric absorption ratio, polarization index, dielectric discharge, capacitance, leakage current, and user-programmed test voltages and run times. It has an RS-232 interface and permits storage results in files specific to the device under test. Users can generate automatic reports of test results and computer configuration options via direct connection through a PC.

Aisle lighting

The AL/ZAL series of aisle lights is designed to evenly illuminate both tall, vertical surfaces and traffic areas down below. The fixtures are also designed for sites where items are stored in multilevel shelving racks, such as warehouses and big-box retailers. The lights' beam illuminates the faces of high-stacked boxes, while also providing uniform light at lower levels.

Motion detector

The VideoJet 400 motion detector reduces false alarms by clearly identifying potential threats. For example, the user can restrict alarm response to motion in one direction, allowing the system to ignore people leaving the building but trigger an alarm or recording while someone is entering.

Indoor/outdoor UPS

The SteadyStream UPS system provides 30-sec ride-through protection at 100% load, and up to 60-sec protection for partial loads. Loads are transferred in 2 ms to 4 ms. It's self-contained for indoor or outdoor use.

Voltage indicator

The SP-0252 has an increased voltage and frequency operating range of 120VAC to 575VAC, 50/60/400Hz. The epoxy encapsulated enclosure features two flashing LEDs for each of its four detectors to advise the observer if voltage is present without the aid of additional equipment. Three of the detectors monitor phase-to-phase voltage and the fourth monitors ground.

Metal-oxide varistors

Composed of a metal-oxide varistor and built-in visual and remote indicators, the TPMOV offers built-in thermal protection with no fault current-level limitations. When its energy rating is exceeded, the varistor disconnects from system power, protecting itself and surrounding components from damage. The new models are rated to withstand 40kA of 8/20ms surge current with available maximum continuing operating voltage ratings from 150VAC to 600VAC.

Circuit breaker receptacles

Russellstoll UniGard IEC 309 circuit breaker interlocked receptacles are available in all standard voltage polarizations. A UL 489 molded-case circuit breaker provides branch circuit protection in the mechanically interlocked receptacles, eliminating the need to stock fuses. The safety interlocks suit chemical, food-processing, beverage, and bottling plants, as well as machinery and construction settings.

PDA software

This software allows field service workers to use a PDA to create a work order on-site. The PDA-created work order, which interfaces with T-Bill time-and-material billing software, can be transmitted to the home office wirelessly, or downloaded via a cradle that interfaces with an office computer. The software can capture the signature of a customer on-site, which can then be used on the invoice to show the customer's payables department who signed for the work.

Lamp fixture

The Vision Bollard series of pathway luminaires features a fully concealed lamp and reflector system that achieves IES cutoff classification for glare-free illumination. The cast aluminum base has two built-in leveling vials for proper alignment and easy installation. The lamps are available in compact fluorescent, high-pressure sodium, incandescent, and metal halide models.

Thermographic camera

The ThermaCam P60 IR system allows thermographers to determine the relative severity of problems and make informed decisions about the true operating condition of electrical and mechanical systems and processes. The palm-sized P60 works with reporting and database software to automate the process of collecting, reporting, and achieving infrared images and inspection information. It has thermal sensitivity at 50/60 Hz from 0.06°C to 30°C.

Scanning system

The Scan-to-CAD Version 5.0 scanning system consists of a 40-in.-wide monochrome scanner with scanning, indexing, intelligent raster editing, and network viewing software. Users can scan and index in one step for easy retrieval. The raster images can be edited using the same method employed for editing vector images. The search and replace capabilities recognize arbitrary raster symbols and match them against predefined templates.
