Columbia Lighting’s new Transition fixtures are enhanced with soft, matte white reflectors to provide uniform illumination and high visual comfort. The deep, sculpted look created by the balanced reflector lens compliments any space. Designed with precision optics and a custom-engineered polyester coating, Transition configurations achieve performance with efficiencies from 90–100%. The Transition family of fixtures feature three lamp sizes available in five different configurations offering maximum versatility in most applications. The completely recessed housing provides a clean, unobstructed ceiling line at mounting heights as low as 8 feet. Ideal for schools, medical facilities, and general public spaces, the fluorescents have an optional clear acrylic dust guard that pivots to close off the lamp compartment.
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.
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.
A new engine pre-heating system is available from Hotstart that offers energy-efficient heating for engines up to 20L displacement. The CTM features an integrated pump that circulates coolant throughout the engine and improves flow through exterior plumbing restrictions. Forced circulation delivers uniform heating and allows the heating element to energize less frequently than an equal wattage thermosiphon heater. This reduction extends heater element life and reduces energy use by up to 30%. Circulating the coolant eliminates hot spots in the cooling system and reduces outlet temperatures. With lower outlet temperatures than typical tank style heaters that rely on thermosiphon, heater hoses and engine seals last longer for overall improvement in heater reliability.
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 introduced the PIG Oil-Only Absorbent Mat with Color Flare Technology, specifically designed to change color to reveal light-colored oil leaks that are nearly invisible on standard absorbents. The Mat is composed of Oil-Only Mat and an outer spunbond layer that contains oil-indicating wax dots. For both indoor and outdoor use, the PIG Oil-Only Mat with Color Flare Technology is UV-resistant, repels water, and is impervious to rain and other wet conditions. For areas where equipment and machinery are stored outdoors, the Color Flare Technology provides an instant alert to problem leaks and drips.
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.
SMART BUILDING TECHNOLOGIES
Smart BT, along with YWire, a leader in environmentally friendly lighting control systems, offers a smart lighting solution that allows control and communication over existing electrical wiring. Customers can send messages to their building’s lighting grid to control on and off switching, adjust motion control and timer settings, and more—without installing new wires. This is the first lighting control solution that implements Broadband over Powerline data networks into building systems. This lighting technology has been proven in commercial, educational, healthcare, and industrial facilities, and will be of great value to government facilities in the federal “Smart Building” program.
