New Products for Power Quality and Reliability

02/27/2007


Battery-based energy-storage system is designed for use with UPS systems, emergency lighting and backup power applications. Nickel metal hydride technology eliminates need for dedicated ventilation or support systems, with a smaller footprint that could reduce space needs by up to 50%. Units are designed for single- or multiple-battery installation into standard 19-in. racks in seismic or non-seismic configurations. For more about the NiGUARD system from Cobasys, click here .

Surge suppression CD-ROM is designed to help engineers, contractors and end users assess surge suppression needs and specify appropriate protection. Q&A-based format aids selection process among manufacturer's product line, based on both load level and criticality. Interactive, isokeuronic map helps users determine lightning-strike susceptibility, and product specifications and installation instructions are available in Word and WordPerfect formats. A spec-writer program also is included. To secure a free copy of the Intermatic TVSS CD-Rom Version 1.5, send an e-mail to Mike Boyd at mboyd@intermatic.com . or call 800-391-4555.

Insulation testers conform to IEC 1010-2 for Category IV 600-volt applications, with displays showing both measurement result and actual test voltage simultaneously. Product series designed for test voltages from 10 volts to 1000 volts, with 1-volt measurement increments possible from 10 volts to 100 volts for low-voltage applications. Insulation resistance measurement range extends from 20 gigohms to 200 gigohms. A free calibration certificate is included with each unit. For more about the MIT400 series from Megger, click here .

Power management software for Microsoft Vista gives users information on parameters such as power consumption and remaining battery life of UPS systems. The application includes an intuitive screen that displays remaining battery backup time available. This real-time indicator works in conjunction with a power consumption sensor that detects how much of the UPS rated power is being used by connected equipment.
