Variable frequency drive offers system integrators a compact and slim motor drive alternative. The small-horsepower model is being launched with a rating of 0.25 to 3 hp. The drive is intended for various applications, including pumps, fans, powered roof ventilators, and heat exchangers. For more information about the ACS55 from ABB, click here .
Industrial batteries are lead-acid type, available in more than 75 models, with outputs of 4-, 6-, 12-, and 24-V in capacities ranging of 1.2 to 230 amp-hours. Available in six different terminal types, batteries also are offered with flame-retardant cases as well as high-power options on select models that provide 15% more capacity than their standard counterparts.

Web-enabled Ethernet communications card option for power meters, designed to optimize the monitoring of electrical installations in industrial, commercial, or critical power environments, offers fast access to a meter’s three-phase energy and power quality data using a standard Web browser, e-mail, or power and energy-management software. Facility and operations personnel can use the power meters to help reduce energy-related costs and avoid power disturbances or other conditions that put equipment and productivity at risk.
