Central lighting inverter for hostile environments is claimed to be the only on-line unit of its kind designed to provide emergency power in remote outdoor locations, harsh weather and hostile environments. The unit features sealed maintenance-free batteries to power HID and incandescent and fluorescent lighting in capacities from 3 to 20 kVA, single phase. Optional monitor system is available for remote monitoring via phone, fax, e-mail, pager and modem. For more information about HEU from Crucial, click here .

Power-quality monitoring system allows users to specify the right instrumentation configuration for their specific application. Users have their choice of voltage, current and data acquisition modules to build from one to four virtual instruments in a single, compact, cost-effective format. By combining four modules in one instrument for applications that previously required two or more instruments, users can save money, prevent integration aggravation and gain physical space.

TVSS devices are featured in a CD-Rom that features a selection guide program to help engineers specify the correct surge protection device for specific applications. The guide includes product specifications and installation instructions in both Word and WordPerfect Formats. A spec writer program assists in creating a protection specification that meets NEMA LS-1 criteria and guidelines. For more about TVSS from Intermatic, click here .

Power and energy meters are panel-mounted and developed for worldwide use with universal mounting options (DIN or ANSI), universal wiring from 1p2w to 3p4w systems, and a universal AC/DC power supply. Voltage inputs are menu-selectable from 150 volts AC up to 600 volts AC. CT/PT ratios can be set from the front panel or with communications. For more about PR300 from Yokogawa, click here .
