New Products for Electrical Systems


Two-compartment recessed floor boxes provide power and communications services in open spaces or directly to a workstation as a furniture feed box. The floor box can be installed in either concrete or wood floors. A lightweight slab-on-grade version features a fusion-bonded epoxy finish that is applied to the standard steel box, which eliminates the need for a costlier cast iron box.

Medium-voltage adjustable-speed drives are specifically designed for outdoor mounting in remote locations or where a building does not exist. This drive is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, such as heat and direct sun, by incorporating a unique enclosure design and power section topology. The device is two enclosure types married together. The transformer section is convection cooled. There are no moving parts, and heat is eliminated through passive vents at the top of the drive. The inverter section is forced-air-cooled and only uses non-CFC cooling components. For more about MTX drives from Toshiba, click here .

Mini cable manager for tight spaces and small cable runs is a hand bendable cable conveyance that can mount to any surface (horizontal, vertical or angled).Built-in mounting rings are spaced to accommodate common stud spacing. It is an ideal cable conveyance for residential, audio/visual, sound/security, office environments, hospitals, and schools. For more about Snake Race from Snake Tray, click here .

Energy-efficient low-voltage transformers are designed to reduce energy consumption and costs for end users, while also addressing the impending federal government mandate requiring that all transformers manufactured after Jan. 1, 2007, meet new standards for increased energy efficiency.
