WEEC 2012 - Measurement and Verification Panelboard

Until now, monitoring capabilities were only available at the panel level, preventing accurate branch circuit pin-pointing of energy waste, but the MVP's ability to monitor energy usage by plug load, circuit, zone, space, or complete lighting system, allows facility managers to isolate energy use with improved precision. The MVP family of products provides savings by controlling lights and also provides a total infrastructure for measuring and verifying the performance of all lighting energy conservation measures. Facility managers can observe breaker status, system operation, or make configuration changes with user-friendly software.

Push-In Relay Test - Lifting Free Weights - Phoenix Contact

PLC PT Relays equipped with our spring-cage, push-in termination technology have a reliable, long-lasting connection ideal for high-vibration applications. The retention force is five times the IEC requirement. Terminations are made by simply pushing the wire into the PT terminal, using very little force. No specialized tools are required, which helps reduce installation time and costs. The PT relays ensure faster wiring, up to 60% faster than the screw termination style. To disconnect the wire, simply insert a screwdriver into the orange release key, push and release the wire. Our push-in technology creates a high degree of usability and includes a wide range of connections; from 26 AWG to 14 AWG wire sizes.

We have created a series of videos, putting this push-in termination technology to the test. In this video, you can see us using our PT relays to lift free weights. This test helps to prove that our PLC PT relays can stand up to retention force and offer a reliable, long-lasting connections with no backing out.

Klein Tools Distance Meter Video

Klein Tools' VDV Distance Meter (Cat. No. VDV501-089) measures voice, data, video, doorbell, siamese, lamp-wire and NM cables up to 1,500 feet. It has six pre-programmed nominal cable length constants for RG59, RG6 and RG11 coaxial as well as Cat3, Cat5e and Cat6 twisted pair. In addition, the VDV Distance Meter lets the user adjust the capacitance/foot constant based on the cable being tested. This tester also ensures compliance and identifies cable runs outside specification. The fault finder feature determines if a cable run is broken or damaged. Furthermore, the VDV Distance Meter saves time and increases efficiencies by measuring cable remaining in a box or on a reel as well as facilitating estimates and billing jobs correctly.To learn more, visit

Universal Conduit Elbow by Thomas & Betts

In most applications, the LU can replace the LL, LR, LB and C conduit bodies. The patent-pending, unique and innovative design of the Universal Conduit Elbow provides an angled covered port, allowing it to be flipped over and used as an LL, LR or LB, while providing easy access against walls and ceilings. The LU was specifically designed to have more volume, allowing a 40 percent wire fill and preventing the conduit system from being de-rated, a problem common with other conduit bodies. The LU can be used to replace the C conduit body when code requires an inspection port after a 90-degree bend. Simply use the LU to replace the 90 and the C and it will provide the bend and inspection port all in one part.

Aside from its universality, the LU Elbow offers additional benefits. The LU enables electricians to run fiber optic cable in a 3⁄4-inch system—and maintain cable bend radius—instead of in a 2-inch system, and it is resistant to both internal and external corrosion with quality BlueKote® four-layer protection. Look for it soon in stainless steel and aluminum. Because the radius of the LU Elbow is the same as the bent conduit, it makes pulling wires hassle-free.

QUINT "ORing" Redundancy Module for Redundant DIN rail DC Power Supplie...

The QUINT ORing redundancy module from Phoenix Contact is a perfect solution for machine building or the process industry. The QUINT ORing uses Auto Current Balancing (ACB) technology to ensure that redundant DIN rail DC power supplies are load-sharing evenly, which results in these power supplies being balanced. ACB technology - coupled with load current monitoring, remote diagnostics and visual indications - ensures maximum reliability in redundant power systems.

ACB technology automatically and symmetrically distributes the load current without regard to effects, such as temperature drift. With a balanced current draw, lifetime expectancy of each power supply may double. The Quint ORing redundancy module displays the status of the load sharing, generating an alarm in cases when the module nears a critical state or the redundancy is defeated.

Solar Car Charger Panel Tracks The Sun

WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- The summer of 2012 has been scorching hot. The heat at times has been practically unbearable. In Monday's Extra Mile report, there is one advantage to the rays emitting from the sun these days: free energy for electric vehicles.
If you drive along Route 355 in Bethesda, you may have noticed tall, futuristic looking panels high in the sky along the road. They're called solar car chargers, giving electric vehicle owners a way to refuel cars with clean energy . . .

See the article and more at

Below is a bit of information from the manufacturer, Advanced Technology and Research Corporation at

The Solar Car Charger incorporates a 1,410 watt sun tracking array to supplement electric vehicle charging requirements. Standard Level II Car Chargers are mounted to the base of the tracking pole and conveniently situated to service two vehicles at once.

Sun Tracking provides up to 30% more power which is converted to AC and fed into the utility grid for generation credit. Car chargers are similarly connected to the local power grid and maintain 100% availability.

The solar power production and power suppied to EV's is monitored for a complete energy system accounting and analysis and it is available to the owner over the internet.

How to Assemble Rhino-Hide® 49 Series Connectors by Leviton

For use on land-based oil drilling rigs and other high-amperage power distribution applications.

Rhino-Hide single pole connectors and receptacles are designed to deliver up to 1,000 Volts AC or DC and up to 1,135 Amps of continuous power under the most extreme conditions with cables ranging in size from 313 MCM to 777 MCM.

Rhino-Hide connectors include a male or female contact with a high performance thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) insulator and dust cap. Choose male contacts for the power side of the circuit or female contacts for the motor load side of the circuit. To prevent separation of the connectors, in-line couplers are available.

Features and Benefits
•Color-coded connector insulator for quick, visual identification of circuit and phase connections.
•Ideal for replacement; connectors mate with other manufacturers' high-amperage single pole connectors and receptacles for fast, easy change-out.
•UV stable, high performance TPV insulators resist fading and cracking for greater service life.
•Contacts machined from high conductivity copper alloy and silver-plated for corrosion resistance and superior conductivity.
•Color-coded, metal in-line coupler prevents separation of connectors.
Panel Mounted Receptacles
Rhino-Hide receptacles are available in male or female versions, with bus bar termination. Insulators are molded in a high performance TPV insulator and are protected by a powder coated metal housing and TPV dust cap. A clevis pin (included) and padlock shackle secure the plug into the receptacle.

Bus bars are available with single or double holes and each is compatible with the full cable range, 313 MCM to 777 MCM. Choose male bus bar for the power side of the circuit or a female bus bar for the motor load side of the circuit. Receptacle housings are available in two styles: one for standard applications and one for applications requiring mounting of multiple receptacles in very close proximity.

Features and Benefits
•Color-coded receptacle housing and bus bar insulator for quick, visual identification of circuit and phase connections.
•Ideal for replacement; receptacles mate with other manufacturers' high-amperage single pole connectors and receptacles for fast, easy change-out.
•The high performance TPV bus bar insulator resists cracking for greater service life.
Couplers, dust caps, ground pins and replacement parts such as contacts, insulators and housings are available for both connectors and panel mounted receptacles.
