Ground tester detects reliable ground connections. The lightweight device features a 3-pole fall-of-potential and 2-pole ground resistance and is capable of capturing values with the push of a single button. The ground tester has automatic noise voltage detection and alerts the user to measurements outside of an adjustable limit setting. (1621 Earth Ground tester by Fluke) www.fluke.com #21

Fuse modules are ideal with 45 mm. wide IEC contactors and replacement circuit breakers in motor starters for superior short-circuit current ratings. The modules include an auxiliary contact option for user protection, compact busbars for line side terminations, IP20 protection and open fuse indicator lights, which meet UL512 requirements. The device is applicable to circuits as large as 600 volts and it can be padlocked in the open position with a 0.25-in. shank diameter. (Ultrasafe™ by Ferraz Shawmut) www.ferrazshawmut.com #22

Ballast line expands to include fluorescent, compact fluorescent, plastic sign and HID ballasts. The catalog includes specification sheets, wiring and case diagrams, cross-referencing by ballast and lamp types and product codes. The line offers a range of options for lighting applications including T5, T5/HO, T8, T12, T12/HO, Circline, CFL and HID lamps. The line offers low total harmonic distortion and includes multi-volt ballasts that utilize a single power lead that requires no additional wiring.

Lighting controls e-book includes occupancy sensors, lighting control panels and daylighting controls. The catalogue is downloadable and allows readers to share information with colleagues by sending links to the publication. The e-book also is available in print form and provides information about product installation and setup through the utilization of wiring diagrams and technical schematics. The service and resource section describes educational programs, seminars and design services. (Product Selection Guide by Watt Stopper/Legrand) www.wattstopper.com #24

Lighting control system provides an efficient and cost-effective alternative for HID lamp lighting applications that previously required fluorescent lighting in order to achieve energy savings. The lighting control reduces energy costs for HID lighting fixtures by 25% to 33%. The model enables automatic control, manual control and remote control for high-performance lighting.(VB400 by IEPC Corp.) www.iepc.cc #25

Protection system controls medium to large-sized AC generators. The device allows the monitoring of instabilities in the power systems and sees how instabilities are affecting the points of generation. The system supports accumulated over- and under-frequency protection that monitors the amount of time a generator has been running at off-nominal frequencies and then triggers alarms. (G60 Generator Protection System by GEMultilin) www.GEMultilin.com #26

Wireless mesh sensor network features a system that eliminates interference from RF sources while minimizing power consumption. The device is designed to switch RF channels and avoid the sources of other RF interference. The wireless network also features open architecture and can adapt to other industry protocols based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. The sensors in the device are battery powered with long MTBF and the router/repeaters are line-powered modules that extend the range of the network and provide alternate routing paths.

Ethernet network interface unit facilitates remote access to a commercial building's lighting control network. The unit monitors the status of lighting loads, makes changes to the control system and overrides lights remotely. It also is able to bridge various lighting control systems that are on the same network. The device comes in sizes as small as 2.83 in. x 2.65 in. (Clipsal www.squaredlightingcontrol.com #28
