New Products for Electrical and Communications Systems


Telecommunications connectors
are said to achieve best-in-class optical performance, with a typical insertion loss as low as 0.1 dB. The product line enhancement also includes a new tool kit, which features lightweight, handheld tools, virtually zero set-up time and enables installation of a connector in less than one minute.

Transfer switches have been shown by independent testing to exceed IBC requirement by operating during a simulated severe seismic event. This is significant as the requirement only requires the transfer switch to operate before and after an event. IBC 2003 certification for severe seismic events is critical for states such as California, Washington, Nevada, Idaho and Colorado.
