Introduction:

06/27/2005


Welcome to this year’s introductory, and hopefully, annual presentation of Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s “Perfect 10” Awards—a two-part product-of-the-year competition in which a selection of this year’s new products has been
chosen by a panel of expert judges for ultimate consideration by CSE's readers to

determine award winners (see Editor's Viewpoint, p. 7, for more details on the process).

In the following eight pages, we present the finalists, listed by category, for HVAC, controls/building automation, plumbing, fire protection, communications/security, electrical, power generation/emergency power and lighting. Our judges have narrowed contest entrants to three finalists per category. We now ask you to take the voting card following page 18, and in the allotted space on the ballot, enter the number of the finalist you feel is the best submission in each category. Please note that for purposes of the competition, motors and drives have been combined with the general electrical category, so please only vote in the electrical box. Also, upon completion of your review, please vote for an overall winner.

We will tabulate your votes and present the results in the November issue of CSE.
