UPS management software monitors and manages UPS systems for workstations, servers, networks, data centers and facilities. One application includes automatic model detection, sequential shutdown, stealth mode operation and a cost calculator. The other is enterprise-wide UPS monitoring software that allows administrators to monitor multiple UPS and other power components. (LanSafe and PowerVision by Eaton) www.powerware.com #9

Ballast checker tool identifies ballast type to confirm ballast status and pinpoint lighting upgrade opportunities. When pointed at a fixture, the device turns green if the light source is powered by a high-frequency electronic ballast, orange if it’s powered by a magnetic ballast. It can also be used to verify that a fixture has been installed with an electronic ballast post-installation. (Ballast Checker by Advance) www.ballastchecker.com #10

Fire-rated poke-throughs install in a 4-in. core hole. The FRPTs include a “step-down” feature, enabling wiring, installation and removal, if necessary, from the floor above. Also included on the model is a subplate that incorporates two rectangular openings with up to six-port multi-service or 12-port all-communication service for power and/or data.
