HD Electric Co.’s TAG voltage detectors are designed to detect voltage on distribution and transmission systems. When in direct contact with an energized conductor, the TAG emits an audible and visual alarm to clearly warn the user if the conductor is energized. Unlike proximity type detectors, TAG voltage detectors will not give false indications due to nearby energized conductors. All TAG voltage detectors can be used in overhead applications with the standard overhead probes as well as in underground applications with the use of optional underground bushing probes. Features and benefits include a design to physically contact conductor under test, both audible and visual alarms, a lack of on/off or range selector switches (the detector is always on) and optional bushing probes for use in underground applications.
Thermal Imaging Camera
LumaSense Technologies has released its Mikron M7604F and M7604G thermal imaging cameras. The Mikron M7604 thermal imaging cameras are actually two cameras in one. In addition to low-temperature radiometric imaging in the 8 to 14 micron wavelength range, each camera has its own specialized bandpass filter that enables accurate imaging through flames or of glass surfaces. The M7604F (for through-flame imaging) and M7604G (for glass surface imaging) have this capability. The M7604 cameras include off-the-shelf batteries, IEEE 1394 (Firewire) capability, industry leading MikroSpec 4.0 image-processing software and many other unique features and accessories.
Telvent has launched its Enterprise License Agreement for Small Utilities program, a cost-effective ArcFM GIS licensing option for U.S. utilities with 100,000 combined meters or fewer. The ArcFM Solution is a complete utility geographic information system (GIS) application suite for maintaining facility asset information on the desktop and in the field. Utilities employ ArcFM products to support mapping, mobile viewing and editing, staking, design and network and outage management. Telvent’s Enterprise License Agreement for Small Utilities (ELA-SU) program complements the small utility ELA program recently launched by ESRI and gives cooperatives and municipals the ability to purchase both ELAs, one providing core technology and one providing a complete utility solution. The program allows small utilities to deploy more seats and additional ArcFM family products for less cost than standard per-seat and per-product licensing arrangements.
John Crane Power Transmission, a supplier of engineered sealing systems and associated products, has moved into its new power transmission manufacturing facility in Deer Park, Texas. Located at 1800 W. 13th St., this new 30,000-square-foot, fully integrated facility includes space for manufacturing, warehouse, customer service and engineering functions. Situated within Houston’s energy corridor just yards from Beltway 8 and other major interstate freeways, Deer Park was chosen as an ideal location for John Crane Power Transmission to serve its growing customer base. This facility replaces the company’s existing 16,000-square-foot facility at 2407 Albright St. in Houston. According to Steve Jadney, general manager with John Crane Power Transmission, the expanded facility was needed to meet market demand and growing sales for power transmission coupling products domestically and throughout the Americas. Two major product lines are manufactured and supported from the new facility: Metastream flexible stainless-steel disc couplings and Powerstream elastomeric couplings.
