LED vapor-tight fixture
The LED Vapor Tight (VT1/LV) fixture co-developed by NICOR and Shat-R-Shield was designed using thermally engineered polymers for corrosion and UV resistance in harsh environments able to withstand moisture, dust and salt spray. This high efficiency luminaire, weighing only 5 pounds, delivers over 100 lumens per watt and offers two packages with approximately 3500 and 7000 lumens. It’s ideal for use in marine facilities, natatoriums, industrial facilities, food processing plants, waste water treatment plants, cold storage, parking garages, wash down areas, tunnels and subways, construction sites, airports and other harsh environment applications. NICOR and Shat-R-Shield introduced the fixture at Lightfair 2015 and were awarded the highest recognition among industry peers as Most Innovative in its product category. Shat-R-Shield and NICOR
New line of drill drives, hammer drills and compact impacts
Milwaukee Tool introduced new M18 Fuel Drill Drivers, Hammer Drills and Compact Impacts in a much more compact size. The new M18 Fuel Drills offer 1,200 in-lbs of torque, while being one half-inch shorter and a half-pound lighter than other drills on the market. The new M18 Fuel drills, hammer drills and impacts will feature a new Powerstate Brushless Motor with higher grade magnets, which produces higher output power and speed under heavy load. In addition, Redlink Plus Intelligence has been upgraded with even better heat management capabilities to handle the higher power output of the motors. Milwaukee Tool
Miniature circuit breakers
The SU 200 M miniature circuit breaker (MCB) from ABB offers an extended rating of 40A at 277Y/480 volts AC to protect larger loads, a dual AC/DC rating to reduce the number of SKUs required for inventory and a more durable housing to help prevent damage during shipping and handling. Steve Eggert, product marketing specialist for MCBs at ABB, says the circuit breaker responds to customers' demands for higher amperage ratings and combined AC and DC ratings in one device.
Barrel pack system for metal-clad cable
The Metal Clad Cable Barrel Pack system is designed for contractors who need a large volume of the same cable on one project. Available in a range of cable types with steel or aluminum armor and lengths from 1,000 to 2,500 feet, Barrel Pack reduces scrap and handling compared to using individual coils in lengths that may not match the project requirement. Contractors get just the amount of cable they need for one area of the building or project and can then move the barrel easily to another area. Barrel Pack allows contractors to buy larger quantities and save any excess for use on other jobs. The easy-pull Metal Clad Barrel Pack, a 75-gallon fiber barrel rated for 400 pounds, is equipped with a lever-locking steel band lid and is easy to transport around the jobsite. Also included is a tripod/truck combination that allows contractors to move the cable easily, without having to pick up heavy coils and carry them from location to location.
AFC Cable Systems
The Electronic Marker System (EMS) Rope 7000 series uses propriety 3M path marking technology to deliver more accurate and more reliable tracking of underground plastic pipe and fiber optic conduit. Designed as a high-performance alternative to the current industry standard solution, the EMS Rope series is available for gas, telco and water utility applications. The EMS Rope, which can be easily installed alongside underground pipes, continues to transmit a signal, even in the event of a cut or removal of a segment.
Stainless steel strut
Calbond has added stainless strut to its product line, providing customers more options when assembling conduit systems in corrosive environments. This stainless steel strut is designed to provide superior corrosion protection and is manufactured in both type 304 and 316 and is available in slotted, back-to-back and solid. Applications include industries where corrosion and ease of assembly are major concerns. Calbond
Miniature circuit breakers
The GMB Series are UL489, AC miniature molded circuit breakers are designed to provide reliable protection for a wide range of applications including branch circuit protection of HACR equipment, power supplies, transformers, motors, receptacles and other equipment. One-, two-, and three-pole arrangements are available, ranging from 0.5A to 63A, with short circuit interrupt capacity of 10kA. The GMB Series circuit breakers are UL listed and conform to IEC standard EN-60947-2.
Ceiling fan boxes
Thomas & Betts has upgraded its Steel City Ceiling Fan Boxes to improve the speed and ease of installing ceiling fans and large fixtures. The ceiling fan boxes are available in multiple configurations to meet any installation requirements, including pan, shallow, deep and integral mounting bracket styles. They feature gold-finished no. 10 screws for easy identification as UL and NEC compliant for ceiling fan support. New-work bar hangers feature locating tabs to facilitate installation and a unique, arched profile for higher load ratings. The end plates include temporary fixing spikes for hands-free installation, and the telescoping bar expands to accommodate joists spaced from 16-24 inches. T&B
Fiber installation system
The ULTIMAZ P2P is designed to offer a stress-free installation system that reduces the rate of damaged fiber optic cable. Installation speeds up to 600FPM allows a six times faster rate compared to hand pulling. This installation device comes with a handheld or stand-mounted hybrid design that utilizes this pushing or “jetting method,” that combines a low strain pushing force with a high speed air stream along the microcable surface for round or flat drop cables with outer diameters of 3.0mm to 10.5mm. Drops may be pushed via compressed air, or bottled air may be introduced into the system for longer distances. Although designed for drops, some cable duct combinations can yield installation lengths near 3,000 feet.
