Harger Lightning & Groundings Ultraweld® UltraShot® Is Re-defining the Exothermic Process

Harger Lightning & Groundings Ultraweld® UltraShot® is re-defining the exothermic process. UltraShot® utilizes a copper container that is consumed along with the weld metal providing for a superior exothermic connection. UltraShot® is fired by an electronic ignition system which consists of a long lasting rechargeable battery controller. This unique ignition system features a six foot cord that allows the user to maintain a safe distance from the reaction. Several advantages of using UltraShot® over conventional processes are labor savings up to 50%, less misfires and less smoke, safer to use and extended mold life. As compared to another product on the market, the long lasting rechargeable battery life is equal to using 84,000 AA batteries! Thats a lot of batteries to put in a land fill. There is also less waste from not using plastic weld metal containers and the product is shipped in bio-degradable cardboard boxes.

Hubbell-Automation New High Bay Motion Sensor

Hubbell Building Automation, Inc. Announces HBA WASP2™
Fluorescent High Bay Occupancy Sensor Product Line

January 2011 – Austin, TX – Hubbell Building Automation, an industry leader in the development of cutting edge occupancy sensing technologies and products, announced today the release of the HBA WASP2 Fluorescent High Bay sensor product line.

Designed specifically for high mounting applications such as warehouses, distribution centers, and similar facilities, the HBA WASP2 sensors provide significant energy savings in addition to those typically associated with T5, T5HO and T8 fluorescent fixtures. By using this new sensor, facilities with fluorescent fixtures can expect an additional energy savings from 50 to 90%.

The new HBA WASP2 sensors provide the same key features as its predecessor – single and dual relay versions, easy to configure daylight sensors, and HBA’s exclusive Smart Cycling™ technology that maximizes lamp and ballast life by ensuring that all lamps received even burn time. New enhancements include:

Improved Design – The sensor now comes in two separately orderable components: sensor modules available in low voltage and line voltage versions, and easy to install interchangeable lens options for area and aisle applications.

Surface Mount Versions – In addition to the end mount version which easily mounts directly to fixtures through an extended ½ -inch chase nipple, HBA WASP2 now includes a surface mount version.

Built-In Daylight Sensor – To take advantage of the natural daylight in a controlled area, all models of the HBA WASP2 sensor feature a built-in photo-sensor to override lights off when there is sufficient ambient light. 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.

Building Automation System Integration – All low voltage HBA WASP2 sensors include an isolated relay with N/O and N/C outputs for easy integration with HVAC or Building Automation Systems.

Hubbell Wiring Systems New Lighting Dimmers and Fan Speed Controllers

Shelton, Conn. – Hubbell Wiring Systems is pleased to announce that it has added three new tradeSELECT® control devices to its comprehensive line of incandescent dimmers and fan speed controllers. Each device is designed to provide precise control with a special purpose in mind, while offering an aesthetically-pleasing look to compliment any d├ęcor.

A cost-effective option for today’s modern interiors, the new Hubbell TradeSELECT slide lighting dimmer provides a full range of dimming with slide activation—the slide easily slides up to brighten and down to dim. 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.

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.
