The surface mount sensors have a downward looking sensor and the end mount sensors include downward and upward looking sensors.

Low-temperature/Water-tight Versions – The HBA WASP2 sensor is also available in low-temperature/water-tight versions to support freezer applications and wet location applications. This special version of the sensor modules and lenses are IP65-compliant.

A final push downward of the slide opens the air gap switch for a positive off. Available in white, ivory and light almond, the 600 Watt, 120 Volt slide dimmer features a thin heat-sink design for low-profile installation.

Also available in white, ivory and light almond with a thin heat-sink low-profile design, the new Hubbell TradeSELECT Omni slide dimmer provides precise control over the full range of dimming. The 600 Watt, 120 Volt Omni slide dimmer features an on/off button integrated into the slide. An additional 3-way lead enables single-pole or 3-way capability in a single device for reduced inventory.

The new Hubbell tradeSELECT rotary fan speed controller is a step up from basic 3-speed controllers. Available in white, ivory and light almond, the rotary fan speed dial provides 100% variable control of fan speed to provide more precise airflow for a given environment, enabling better interior airflow management.

Hubbell Ultra High-Density FCR Series Fiber Enclosures

Hubbell Premise Wiring is pleased to introduce a new optical fiber enclosure that offers a 144-port configuration in a 1U space for ultra high-density data center applications.

Part of Hubbell’s FCR Series enclosures, the new 1U high-density fiber enclosure features a three-drawer ultra compact design that provides a flexible, scalable and reconfigurable interconnect apparatus for a wide range of fiber distribution applications. Each drawer accepts four ultra compact 12-port LC to MPO cassette modules that enable channeling of network traffic into small diameter (3.0 mm) 12-fiber cables to minimize congestion, while providing scalability to 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet applications through standard MPO backplane connections.

“Today’s storage area networks, advanced fiber interconnections and high-density fiber switches in the data center require space-saving solutions to accommodate maximum fiber ports in a 1U space without compromising accessibility,” according to Jon Lutzen, Senior Product Manager of Optical Fiber Systems. “Hubbell’s new high-density 1U fiber enclosure is the perfect solution to provide density and consolidation, with a simple plug-and-play design for rapid deployment and timely network start-up.”

Available in gray or black, Hubbell’s new high-density 1U fiber enclosure fits easily into 19-inch or 23-inch racks and cabinets. Typical applications require only one enclosure per rack, allowing maximum space for active equipment. The compact LC to MPO cassettes and 12-fiber MPO cords are available in OM3 and OM4 grade multimode, and singlemode optical fibers to support the full range of current and future optical network applications.

Phoenix Contact Diode Power Supplies

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Phoenix Contact’s new Quint Diode power supplies are designed for redundant applications that require isolation and N+1 redundancy. Versions are available for use in both 12-24 V DC and 48 V DC operations.

The power supplies’ housings are made of extruded aluminum for improved cooling and longer service life. This also decreases the heat load in cabinets.

The Quint Diodes use MOSFETs, rather than Schottky or silicon diodes used in most redundant power supplies. These MOSFETs are up to 70 percent more efficient than standard diode components. This limits the effect of a diode module on the load of the power supplies.

The Quint Diodes carry UL 508 Listing as well as Class I, Division 2 Listing, making them well suited for installation in critical process industry applications.
