Altronic has completed field trials of the CD200D Digital Ignition System. Designed for universal application on virtually any medium- or high-speed gas engine, the 12-24 VDC-powered CD200D is available in eight, 12, and 16 output configurations. The CD200D is a camshaft-triggered device, but is uniquely capable of accepting angular position inputs from either a camshaft-mounted magnet disc and Hall-effect pickup, or through a magnetic pickup monitoring position holes drilled into the engine camshaft. Housed in a cast aluminum enclosure, the CD200D is suitable for direct engine mounting. Manual, one-step, and 4-20mA-driven timing control adjustment is resident in all systems, as are LED-based operating diagnostics.
ComRent offers convenient load banking services through 15 regional offices and inventory centers throughout North America. The company owns and maintains a fleet of 2,000+ load banks in the country, all major voltages and up to 50+ MW capacity. Among its fleet are medium-voltage “direct connect” 5-MW load banks (CR922); transformers are not required. The CR922s have been engineered to meet the testing requirements of medium-voltage generators at a power factor of 1.0 and are exclusively available through ComRent.
Crestchic USA offers a complete line of compact, portable load bank modules built in sizes up to 6.25 MVA (5,000 kW) resistive/reactive and reactive only. These modules can be linked to provide capacities up to 60 MW or more. They’re designed for easy shipment and can be used to test critical systems and components such as: emergency standby/prime power, generators, turbines, large UPS systems, ship board generators, large switch-gear components, Power Distribution Units, and more.

Large organizations with more sophisticated energy information needs can use EnergyCAP Enterprise.
EVANS COOLING SYSTEMS
Evans Cooling Systems has a patented technology for a waterless engine coolant, providing superior benefits for generator engines that are not found with traditional water-based engine coolants. Its waterless coolant is a permanent coolant lasting the life of an engine, eliminating the need for periodic generator coolant change-outs. Evans HDTC has the capacity to safely operate at higher temperatures, providing uninterrupted power, and protects the engine at temperatures well above the boiling point of water. The waterless formula avoids corrosion, decreasing maintenance costs. Evans HDTC is a safe, environmentally friendly alternative to water-based coolants.
Faronics Power Save delivers desktop computer energy management that doesn’t interfere with user or IT needs. It keeps computers running when users need them, accurately determines when computers are inactive so that they can be powered down, and can prove its return-on-investment through savings reports. Faronics Power Save is the computer energy management solution that analyzes CPU, disk, keyboard, mouse, network, and application activity before taking power management actions. It is an energy- and money-saving solution for both Windows and Mac computers.
Guascor Power, formally known as Guascor S.A., part of the Guascor Group, has developed three new series of engines: the SFGM for propane and natural gas, and the HGM series engines using the Miller cycle. The SFGM series utilizes the current configuration, but, with the incorporation of the Miller cycle, Guascor can achieve higher power ratings and better efficiencies. Utilizing this technology, Guascor has also developed the SFGM propane engine series. The HGM series or High Efficiency series is a completely new engine that Guascor developed with the support of AVL, also utilizing the Miller cycle. This series has electrical efficiencies above 40%, and NOx emissions at or below 250 mg Nm3.
Lectrus recently completed a unique custom metal enclosure at Cooper Nuclear Station (CNS), Nebraska Public Power District’s largest single unit electrical power generation station. CNS commissioned Interstate Power Systems—who in turn contracted with the Lectrus South Dakota Operation—to build a large, two-piece sound-attenuated metal enclosure for a backup diesel generator, switchgear, and associated electrical equipment. The new diesel generator will supplement the station’s two emergency diesel generators already in service. Lectrus specializes in the design and construction of robust electrical enclosures that house and protect power distribution and generation equipment.
MOSEBACH MANUFACTURING CO.
Mosebach Manufacturing Company specializes in AC and DC Load Banks of any size, both portable and stationary, and all voltages and frequencies are available. The company specializes in dynamic braking resistors, dynamic braking systems, high-power resistors, neutral grounding resistors, and electric heaters. Mosebach custom builds products, and other types of load banks are available as well.
NEW PIG CORP.
New Pig Corporation has recently introduced the PIG Oil-Only Absorbent Valve Wrap to soak up nuisance drips and leaks in valves, flanges, and other oddly shaped pipe components—indoors or out. Quick and easy to install, the PIG Oil-Only Valve Wrap features polyethylene drawstrings on each end that hold the Wrap in place. Two sheets of highly absorbent PIG Mat absorb and retain oils and oil-based liquids while the Wrap’s clear poly backing helps prevent absorbed liquids from leaking through. The PIG Oil-Only Valve Wrap is UV-resistant up to one year.
SCHWEITZER ENGINEERING LABORATORIES INC.
Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories Inc. (SEL) introduces the SEL-3025 SCADA Shield, the latest addition to SEL’s security solutions lineup. The SEL-3025 economically adds strong access controls to serial and modem communications links without disturbing existing configurations or equipment upgrades. The new product utilizes powerful AES-128/256 and SHA-1/256 to encrypt and authenticate byte-oriented serial communications links with the Secure SCADA Communications Protocol. With its remote management functionality and wide range of application support, the SEL-3025 is flexible and easy to use.
Transcube introduces the 100TCG to its line of transportable fuel tanks. The new double-walled tank offers a special total containment design to eliminate the risk of spills and contamination. With a capacity of 2,450 gallons, the 100TCG is ideal for feeding large portable generators and many other applications that require a larger supply of diesel. The tank is designed with an inner fuel container enclosed within a steel-constructed, weatherproof outer wall that ensures 110% integral secondary containment—in contrast to traditional tanks that require a separate containment pan. All fill ports, pumps, fittings, and connections are housed within a full-height cabinet.
