Reel-O-Matic has introduced new mobile combo units that will roll through a standard 36-inch entry door and make pulling wire from parallel reels easier. These combo units are available in all traditional and custom parallel-reel configurations. The stands are fitted with polyurethane coated locking casters. Both the reels and stands are heavy-duty quality.
Protection Testing Library
The new OMICRON PTL (protection testing library) provides test templates for a wide range of protection relays. These templates contain customizable test plans covering all important protection functions and XRIO converters for modeling the relay in the test software. Using the PTL allows considerable time savings as test plans and nominal characteristics do not have to be created from scratch. The PTL is continuously updated and extended by OMICRON experts. The number of relays in the library is constantly growing and has now surpassed 250. In addition to digital multifunctional protection relays, PTL also supports automated testing of many single-function relays.
Foster Transformer introduces a line of isolation transformers suitable for step-up, step-down and 1:1 voltage applications. An electrostatic shield between the primary and secondary windings enhances safety and provides suppression of transients and electrical noise. When used in a 1:1 configuration, these isolation transformers protect sensitive electrical equipment installed in electrically noisy environments. When used as step-down transformers, they allow equipment designed to operate from a 120V power source to operate in areas where the voltage is nominally 208V or 240V. When wired for step-up operation, these transformers allow equipment designed for 208V or 240V operation to operate from 120V service.
