Enclosed disconnect switches are offered in fusible and non-fusible versions. The non-fused type can be used to comply with NEC Article 430, which requires a disconnect switch to be provided within 15 ft. of the sight of a motor to ensure a safe means of disconnection and lockout capability. Up to 400 amps, the fusible type disconnects both the line and load sides of the fuses using two double...


Enclosed disconnect switches are offered in fusible and non-fusible versions. The non-fused type can be used to comply with NEC Article 430, which requires a disconnect switch to be provided within 15 ft. of the sight of a motor to ensure a safe means of disconnection and lockout capability. Up to 400 amps, the fusible type disconnects both the line and load sides of the fuses using two double-breaking contacts per pole. This isolates the fuses in the “off” position by separating the fuse from applied voltage. (by Ferraz Shawmut) Input #1 at

Rack-based UPS is designed for high-powered blade servers and high-density computing environments. The scalable three-phase system is the latestin the manufacturer's series of rack-based solutions. Users can expand an implementation from 12 kW to 60 kW in a single 19-in. enclosure by plugging in additional parallel modules. (BladeUPS by Eaton Powerware) #2

Mini dome camera is for round-the-clock surveillance of indoor locations such as retail outlets, malls and grocery stores. The camera features a 1/3-in. CCD (768 x 494) with 10-bit DSP, 3-axis adjustable capability (350° pan, 146° tilt), and a tamper-resistant lockable cover. The camera mounts directly or in standard electrical junction boxes with just two simple connections. (IK-DF02A by Toshiba) #3

Large-diameter ball valve is offered in 2-1/2-, 3- and 4-in. sizes. Available with pneumatic or electric actuation, the valve is suitable for use across a broad spectrum of applications including industrial water treatment, swimming pools, aquariums, water parks, waste water technology, potable water treatment, chemical distribution, electroplating and power plants. It is available in five materials: Polypropylene, PVC, CPVC, ABS and PVDF. (Type 546 by GF Piping) #4

Absorptive sound walls are a noise-mitigation tool for HVAC that have an NRC of 1.05 per ASTM Test Method C423-90a, and an STC of 33 per ASTM Test Method E90-90 and E413-87. The system can be designed for any configuration and for all wind loads. All structural steel is custom-fabricated and all welding conforms to American Welding Society D1.5. (LSE System by Sound Fighter) #5

Cascading sequencer enhancement to boiler series is now standard on 1.5 million- to 2 million-BTU models. The device eliminates the cost and set-up requirements of a separate third-party sequencer for installations of up to eight units. The internal sequencer simplifies creation of a cascading “lead/lag” system, in which the lead boiler or water heater controls the rotating operation and firing rate of up to seven additional units. (Power-Fin by Lochinvar) #6

Load indicators are designed to work seamlessly with patented capacitive sensors. The products provide several key features that are intended to make it easy for users to build a load measurement system. The units accepts input from up to four load sensors and digitizeanalog signals using 21-bit ADCs. They automatically sums loads from all connected sensors and lets users “tare” values from a set pre-load. (DS2100 by Loadstar) #7

Emergency lighting control allows users to leverage the use of occupancy sensors and time-scheduled systems by having devices control emergency lighting in tandem with non-emergency lighting. Wiring options accommodate a variety of control needs and input for remote control. An integral test button facilitates testing required by codes. (ELCU-100 by Watt Stopper) #8

Airflow monitoring station is suited to HVAC applications where flow verification is required for proper balancing, improving air quality and controlling industrial process. The system uses multiple pressure taps located on the fan inlet venture to accurately measure flow without the pressure drop and efficiencyloss associated with traditional flow probe monitors. (Sure-Aire by Greenheck) #9

Wireless controls for pools and spas can transform a traditional mechanical time switch into a more convenient and flexible wireless unit. The unit gives users the ability to control five circuits and up to three valve actuators. (I-Wave by Intermatic) #10

Water coolers are vandal-resistant and designed both for indoor and outdoor use. The units meet adult and child ADA requirements and feature a 16-gauge galvanized frame and a 20-gauge 300 series steel cabinet. Vandal-resistant features include a chrome-plated, one-piece bubbler, a self-closing single-action mechanical pushbutton and pinned torx screws. (by Elkay) #11

Lavatory faucets with extended length handles are designed to bring controls closer to the user. Center-set, single-hole-mount faucets feature heavy-duty all-cast brass bodies with 6-in. extended reach handles. Ceramic disk cartridges are maintenance-free. The models also feature temperature indicator and 2.2 gpm aerators. (by Moen Commercial) #12

Hygro-thermometer is suited to HVAC/R installation and repair and mold inspection and remediation. The device features 2% RH accuracy and a RH response time of less than 30 seconds. (RH490 by Extech) #13
