EPLAN Pro Panel offers specific 3D functionalities to define electrical and fluid engineering mounting layouts. The module starts with the brand-new 3D technology of the EPLAN Platform und facilitates a design process across various disciplines based on a common database.

EPLAN Pro Panel can be used to produce standardised mounting and production drawings quickly and easily with associative model views. It offers all necessary functions for populating mounting panels or defining power units and valve blocks, based on EPLAN Electric P8 or EPLAN Fluid. Online access to all the devices in the design, the EPLAN parts management, and the EPLAN Data Portal is included. The project design approach can be chosen freely. For example, the mounting layout can be planned flexibly even before a schematic exists. The user can, if necessary, start with populating a mounting panel and design the schematic afterwards.

Unipower Corporation has announced a new series of rack-mount AC PDUs (Power Distribution Units) that will find wide applications in mission critical networks. The Vigilant Series are 1U high and designed for 19in. rack systems and capable of providing AC power distribution at the rack or system level.

Each Vigilant PDU is capable of providing local True RMS Current Metering with a front panel LED. Remote Total Power Monitoring is also provided using software included for this purpose.

In normal operation these PDUs provide distribution for up to 8 AC loads through IEC (230VAC nominal) or NEMA (120VAC nominal) connectors. Remote Power On/Off with sequencing can be user defined to sequence equipment turn-off and turn-on.

Other system features of the Vigilant PDUs are remote individual outlet control, user-definable alarm thresholds and the ability to set-up remote “Event Alerts” via E-mail or SNMP Alarm Traps as well as providing local audible alarm.

“These Smart PDUs provide capabilities needed in today’s sophisticated networks and allow our power customers the ability to one-stop shop for all their power needs,” said
Nigel Frey – Unipower

All Unipower Corporation Vigilant Series PDU models meet the requirements of all relevant safety standards including UL60950-1, CSA22.2 No. 60950-1 and EN60950-1 are also UL Listed and are RoHS compliant.  Product is currently available from UNIPOWER Corporation’s factories located in the U.K. and the U.S.

Finder has announced additions to its 18 Series of PIR motion detectors supporting a variety of interior energy saving schemes.  The compact 18.21 and 18.31 variants will meet the needs of higher ceiling, higher load switching applications and those requiring direct interface to a PLC or BMS.

Recess mounted, the flush fitting 18.31 suits suspended or plasterboard ceilings while the 18.21 is a low profile PIR for hard surface mounting.  Providing a 10 amp rated normally open volt free output, the detectors will switch loads at any voltage and are not restricted to 230VAC mains tasks.  24V ac/dc supply versions are also available for applications without a mains supply or where safe, low voltage operation is required.

With a 110º wide sensing angle and a reach of 2.8m, the 18.21-0300 and 18.31-0300 PIRs will handle all types of regular ceiling height applications.  For high bay or extended ceiling height duties, the 18.31-0031 PIR variant offers a much longer sensing range of up to 8m.

The Finder PIRs also offer an adjustable light threshold setting allowing operation to be varied according to ambient light conditions.  In addition, an enhanced light-on time adjustment of up to 35 minutes makes the PIRs well suited to HID lamp applications, which for reasons of preserving lamp life, place a restriction on the number of starts per hour.

Seaward has upgraded its specialist portable appliance testing (PAT) data management program for use with large corporate databases and health and safety systems.

Compatible with all makes of PAT tester‚ the PATGuard Elite SQL is designed for those using large advanced database formats such as Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server.

Intended for organisations and service companies that carry out electrical safety testing of appliances on a regular basis, the new extensive PATGuard Elite SQL program accommodates everything from downloading test results to test records and report and certificate printing to e-mail alerts for planning re-tests.

The latest version 2.2 of the software enables much larger PAT results systems to be set up and enables test records to be easily incorporated in existing company SQL databases.

If you are looking for an intelligent access control system then look no further than the enhanced Fortessa PC Based Access Control range by AVS – a solution that will give you control over who has access to your building from one central, controlling computer.

To assist customers and help simplify the understanding of ATEX (European Directive relating to Hazardous Area Installations) Hazardous Area Equipment has launched a new A6, full-colour application guide.

The Deeter Group, market leaders in the design, development and manufacture of electronic sensors and control systems, announces the launch of its ground breaking Wireless Sensor System for industrial measurement and control.

At the centre of the Deeter Wireless Sensor System is the simple-to-use Base Station designed to receive data from remote wireless devices such as the Deeter Liquid Vertical Sensor (LVCS-RF) or Wireless Sender. The base station converts remote sensor input signals into industry standard process outputs and acts as the coordinator for an IEEE 802.15.4 wireless sensor network. It operates on one of 16 radio frequency channels available in the 2.4GHz ISM band. The high power transceiver can achieve a range of greater than 1km, subject to local environmental factors. The internationally recognised IEEE 802.15.4 protocol allows several wireless sensor networks to share the same wireless spectrum without interference.

A new range of lightweight carry cases and back packs for the easy and convenient transportation of medical device analysers and simulators from site-to-site are available from Rigel Medical.

The CT Analyzer from Omicron provides fast and cost-effective testing and verification of current transformers for protection and metering applications. It automatically determines all relevant current transformer values and compares the results with the selected IEC or IEEE standard.

The very small and lightweight (< 8kg) device offers an outstanding accuracy of 0.02 % in ratio and 1 min in phase angle deviation, making it the most suitable mobile test device for testing CTs up to accuracy class 0.1.

The latest version of the CT Analyzer has been improved with new hardware accessories and software functions

Residual magnetism measurement
The latest measurement function of the CT Analyzer - the RemAlyzer - allows current transformers to be tested for residual magnetism.

Residual magnetism can occur when current transformers are confronted with very high AC currents or DC offset during fault conditions. Core saturation effects caused by residual magnetism may lead to incorrect operation of the protection relays.

Testing of multi-ratio CTs
The CT Analyzer can be extended by the CT SB2 switch box, enabling testing of current transformers with multiple taps, without the need for rewiring. The CT SB2 is a standalone unit, which can be attached to the CT Analyzer. It provides simple, color-coded, six-channel connection possibilities, guaranteeing convenient wiring and avoiding time-consuming and error-prone reconnection.

Due to its wide functionality range and easy handling the CT Analyzer is the ideal solution for on-site testing and calibration of single and multi-tap current transformers for protection and metering purposes.
