Programmable alarm trips

The SPA2 programmable current/voltage and RTD/thermocouple limit alarm trips are FM approved and provide on/off control, warn of trouble, and provide for emergency shutdown by sending up to four relay outputs when a monitored process signal falls outside a user-selectable high or low limit. Available models accept input signals from transmitters, temperature sensors, resistance and potentiometer devices, and direct millivolt sources. In addition, they feature 20-bit input resolution and a metal, RFI-resistant, DIN-mount housing. A large, five-digit process and status readout shows the process variable, output, or toggles between the two in selectable engineering units.

Adjustable-speed drive

The MTX NEMA 3R MV outdoor medium voltage ASD is designed for outdoor mounting in remote locations or where a building doesn't exist. The unit consists of two enclosure types married together. The transformer section is convection cooled. There are no moving parts, and heat is eliminated through passive vents at the top of the drive. The inverter section is forced-air cooled and only uses non-CFC cooling components.

Daylighting controller

The LS-101 single zone controller switches lights off and on when light levels detected by the unit's internal light sensor fall above or below factory- or user-defined setpoints. According to the company, it is the only stand-alone daylighting control device to feature a digital display. Certified to meet California's Title 24 requirements, it requires minimal adjustment at startup, as factory-set parameters are appropriate for many applications. Depending on placement, the controller can function in a closed-loop or an open-loop system, sensing either a combination of electric and daylight contribution or daylight only.

Voltage tester

The VoltAware noncontact voltage tester offers a Cat. IV 1,000V rating and continuous battery self-testing with an ergonomic, over-molded cushion grip. Able to fit in a shirt pocket, the voltage tester alerts electricians of an energized circuit at outlets, switches, and electrical panels without requiring contact with a bare conductor. If voltage from 50VAC to 1,000VAC is detected, the device instantly emits a loud beep, and its high-intensity LED light switches from green to flashing red. In sound-sensitive environments, the audible signal can be turned off without compromising operator safety.
