(SE3 Series by Ruud Lighting) Circle 14

Three-phase voltage monitor accurately diagnoses unbalanced voltage flow. The monitor automatically senses connection to either 200V, 300V or 400V motors, and does not require a separate power source for operation. (Model 455 by SymCom) Circle 15

Hazardous-location ballasts are thermally protected to prevent explosions in challenging environments. This line of UL-approved ballasts carry the ‘HL’ mark, indicating that they will not cause hazardous conditions should the fixture become exposed to foreign particles or substances. (Robertson Worldwide) Circle 16

Analyzer transmitter for continuous emissions monitoring is offered in a compact unit. The small size of the monitoring device allows the system to be closer to the area it is monitoring, and is suitable for high-temperature operations. (CAT by Rosemount Analytical) Circle 17

Sensor array with load valve simultaneously measures the flow, pressure and temperature of mobile or stationary hydraulic systems and components. The load valve offers control of pressures up to 6,000 psi and allows the operator to simulate the load of multifunctional hydraulic systems. (Flo-tech) Circle 18

Smoke-control system helps limit the spread of smoke during fires in high-rises, malls, atriums and other large facilities. It works in unison and is compatible with most HVAC system configurations or building-management systems. The controller has the ability to control dedicated and nondedicated systems, and has been UL listed. (MXL by Siemens Cerberus Division) Circle 19

Metering faucet features solid brass construction and concealed adjustment control, making it able to withstand severe commercial or institutional applications. This faucet delivers a controlled flow rate for a preset period of time and offers an adjustable temperature control for water and energy savings. (SCOT by Symmons) Circle 20

LonTalk adapter connects any PC or laptop to a LonWorks BAS network via a USB port. By utilizing this device, it is possible to transform the computer into a LonWorks node, running the maintenance and monitoring application on the PC. (XLON by DH Electronics) Circle 21
