Neutral grounding resistors are available in a NEMA 3R enclosure with standard features such as a solid-steel cross-kinked one-piece top, a top ventilating screen, stand-off insulators and high-quality stainless-steel resistor elements, either stamped grid, edgewound or wirewound. Optional features include powder coat finish, a stainless steel enclosure, elevating stands and a current transformer. For more about neutral grounding resistors from Post Glover, click here .

Fiber-optic indoor and indoor/outdoor interlocking cable

is an aluminum armored design that is said to eliminate the need for inner duct or conduit with a smaller crush resistant pathway for improved design flexibility and lower installed cost. The product is used within buildings to provide high-density connectivity and ease of installation. For more about Opti-Core cable from Panduit, click here .

Busway system is a modular overhead high-density electrical distribution system designed for the higher load requirements of industrial and high-tech applications. The new system was developed to extend the manufacturer’s maximum busway size from 225 to 400 amps, as a response to the growing power needs of labs, data centers and other mission-critical facilities.
