New Products for Power Quality and Reliability

Testing tools, surge suppression devices and lightning protection equipment


Testing tools
are presented in a new online catalog that includes product information divided into sections for commercial electricians, industrial electricians and HVAC/IAQ technicians, or viewers can navigate by product categories including digital multimeters, electrical testers, earth ground testers and power quality analyzers.

Surge protection device
(SPD) features a monolithic metal oxide varistor (MOV) design that provides protection by eliminating thermal disconnect mechanisms. Combined with its ability to be directly connected to main power lines or via the bus bars after the main circuit breaker, the SPD is said to be an ideal protection solution for mission critical government and defense facilities, including homeland security systems, civil aviation systems, radar systems, surveillance systems, and communication and data centers.

Lightning protection equipment catalog includes grounding and bonding, Ultraweld exothermic welding products, lightning protection equipment, ground testing equipment, AC and RF surge suppression, and telecommunications products. The catalog also has a technical support section complete with specifications, and two indexes (part number and key word) for ease in locating products. The catalog is available in either a perfect-bound paper version or a CD-ROM format. The CD catalog includes links to AutoCAD detail drawings showing typical lightning protection and grounding applications. For more about the catalog from Harger, click here .

Digital multi-measurement device measures and monitors the electrical values primarily on switchboards, while providing energy metering and management for electricity, water and gas. It also remotely controls and commands equipment with the correct add-on modules installed. The device offers pushbutton access to data, allowing users to reach any measurement without pressing any button more than four times. A backlit LCD display guarantees clear visibility, and an ASIC chip ensures superior accuracy levels. For more about DIRIS from Ferraz Shawmut, click here .
