The new generation of wienet v3 Industrial routers have been designed for use in harsh environmental conditions with temperatures ranging from -40 °C to +75 °C. The input voltage range from 10 DC to 60 V DC also enables a PoE (Power over Ethernet) option.

Varilight’s market leading V-Pro LED dimmers series has been enhanced with new high power versions available across the range. The new dimmers are designed to control up to 30 dimmable LEDs with a maximum load rating for LED of 300W.

Lighting and wiring accessories manufacturer, Scolmore Group, has added to its popular Inceptor range of integrated LED Downlights, with a non-fire-rated version that provides contractors with a high-quality, cost-saving LED solution for lighting projects.

As network operators and consumers become more and more aware of the importance of the security of supply in electrical power systems, they are becoming increasingly interested in the continuous measurement of power quality. In order to identify problems at an early stage and to be able to take appropriate preventative measures, the first step is to use a suitable measuring system to closely analyse the supply system or technical equipment over a longer time period. Depending on the specific facility and application, the requirements to be met by a suitable measuring system are very varied and include a wide range of different measurement functions.

Formerly Borri, Power Control (PCL) has received a glowing review for its electrical expertise and high performance UPS solutions from one of the world’s largest travel sites.

Due to continued business expansion, the global travel review company recently replaced its 60kVA, end of life unit with the purchase of two Borri B8000FXS 20kVA UPS units, which are now handling added capacity the company’s newest facility.

Testing underground – and undersea – high-voltage power cables is always a challenging task and has often involved the use of huge lorry-mounted test sets. As Damon Mount of Megger explains, however, recent developments mean that much smaller, easily transportable test sets can now provide results that are accurate, detailed and dependable.
