The VRx precision voltage regulators from TSi Power Corporation are designed for outdoor use and suit applications including mobile phone cells, microwave relaying stations and remote telemetry amongst others. They are packaged in an IP65 (NEMA 44) housing making them washdown and corrosion resistant. They withstand stressing environmental conditions including ambient temperatures ranging from -20 to + 50°C, humidity to 90% and altitudes to 3300 m.
Swift Cable-Mate and Swift Cable-Buddy are suitable for trades personnel using electrical, pneumatic or hydraulic equipment, where having leads, hoses or lines on the ground can present a serious trip hazard. Swift Cable-Mates are relocatable combined with magnets, which hold up to 25 kg, in the vertical plane. These brackets can be utilised across various industrial, commercial and underground sites.
The EHP-50D isotropic field analyser is an improved version of the measuring probe for low-frequency electromagnetic fields from 5 Hz to 100 kHz, expanding the measuring range of the Narda wideband NBM-550 measuring set from 5 Hz to 60 GHz.
The LST-7 portable smaller-size lockout station can be used to carry lockout equipment around plants and workplaces. Made in Australia from high-visibility bright yellow ABS and HDPE plastics, the stations can also be wall mounted.
The NSW Government has recently mandated the installation of safety switches in most workplaces in an endeavour to protect workers against electric shocks.
The 381, 376, 375 and 374 current clamps can be used by technicians, working on hazardous equipment and high-voltage circuits, to complete their electrical test and measurement jobs safely and reduce their exposure to electrical shock.
Master Lock has launched a range of safety padlocks, hasps and lockout cables designed to fit smaller diameter lockout points.
An electrical industry association has supported the NSW Government’s recent decision to make safety switches compulsory in all workplaces.
The Sprecher + Schuh CSS7 safety relay and CAS7 safety contactor range features advanced safety and reliability with various contact configurations.
The padlock ‘differ’ recording database for the Iso-Lok range of lockout tagout (LOTO) products has been improved. The Iso-Lok padlock range is designed to uphold the integrity of the user’s LOTO safety system by guaranteeing that each padlock on any one site is unique - that each one differs from the others so that it can only be unlocked by the specific key meant for it. This is achieved by supplying each padlock with a distinct barrel which has a ‘differ’ (key) number associated with that barrel.
The IsolationPoint lockout procedure and management program uses a PDA to execute energy isolation procedures to provide accurate and efficient equipment lockout.
The frequency range of the AMB-8057 Area Monitors has been extended up to 7 GHz, enabling them to capture electromagnetic radiation emanating from WiMAX, Wi-Fi, WLAN and other wireless services, as well as from industrial controllers. These weatherproof monitors can be installed wherever there is a need to monitor and record potentially dangerous electromagnetic fields for long periods.
Two companies and a director were convicted over an incident where a young worker was electrocuted by overhead powerlines on a building site, in spite of warnings from the electricity utility.
Fluke IR windows can be used for safe, fast infrared inspections and reduce the time needed to conduct regular inspections. They can also enhance safety by avoiding exposure to live equipment and, additionally, fewer technicians are required to conduct inspections.
