Extech’s RC200 is a small, hand-held tool with selectable auto-/manual-ranging for measuring AC/DC voltage, capacitance, resistance, continuity and diode function in circuit. For one-handed operation, squeeze the tweezers around a surface-mount component or test point for automatic component identification and testing. For ease of use, says Extech, the RC200 comes with an adjustment dial that allows you to optimize the tweezers’ spacing. The RC200 adds versatility with tips that can be removed and swapped with a test leads adaptor for voltage readings up to 600V. (Appeared EBMag August 2010, Products)EXTECH
16 February 2010Ideal Industries’ VDV Pro cable tester features a bright, backlit full dot-matrix screen that, making it easy to read in low-light environments. Ergonomically designed for hand-held use, the tester allows technicians to quickly check the integrity of virtually any cable found in a residential or commercial VDV installation, including telephone, data network, and video/security alarm. The Pro has integrated RJ11/12, RJ45 and coax F-connector interfaces, while accessories enable the unit to support BNC and RCA connectors. An integrated tone generator offers four analogue tones to locate and isolate wire pairs.IDEAL INDUSTRIES
16 February 2010Exfo has implemented EtherSAM (an ethernet service testing methodology based on the ITU-T Y.156sam standard) into its ethernet testing products. Exfo says widely used standards, such as RFC 2544, are no longer adequate to fully validate service-level agreements (SLA). To address the limitations of current test methods, the ITU has introduced a new draft test standard: ITU-T Y.156sam. Exfo’s EtherSAM executes the complete ITU-T Y.156sam test with bidirectional measurements. Key SLA parameters are measured independently in each test direction.EXFO
16 February 2010 Exfo says its Brix System for network service assurance now supports active/passive monitoring for wireless networks utilizing long-term evolution (LTE) standards. Built on a distributed and scalable architecture, the LTE monitoring solution focuses on end-to-end QoS and QoE monitoring, enabling service providers to monitor their LTE network at multiple service delivery layers including control, data and service planes. By combining this service assurance solution with Exfo’s portfolio of equipment, the company says it now offers a single-source solution that can help improve quality of service while reducing capital and operational expenses.EXFO

Telatemp has developed a pistol-grip IR thermometer with a built-in laser pointer for accurate aiming. Applications include plant maintenance of rotary equipment, testing for hot spots on electrical panels, and more. A large backlit LCD display makes measurement in dark or low-light conditions simple. Basic accuracy is ±2ºF over a range of 0° to 600°F (the units can switch between metric and imperial). The fixed emissivity (0.95) covers 90% of surface temperature measurement applications, and audible and visible over-range indicators are standard.TELATEMP
AEMC’s Simple Logger II Model L404 is a four-channel event data logger; event data is stored only as the event occurs. It works with dry contact closure or 0-3 and 0-5vDC logic levels. An internal memory allows storing over 50,000 events; measurement scaling is user programmable. A series of front panel LEDs provide a quick status of the logger’s state and memory use. DataView application software is included, providing real-time viewing of measurement data, even while recording. Instrument configuration, data storage and report generation from a pre-defined template or operator custom designed templates are also standard features.AEMC
Siemens Energy & Automation has expanded its residential line of combination type arc fault circuit interrupters (CAFCIs) to include an Intelli-Arc diagnostic tool. The company claims the new tool makes it easier to troubleshoot AFCI circuits by improving troubleshooting accuracy and reducing the number of visits to the problem site. The diagnostic tool can be used with any circuit breaker, regardless of brand. The device also provides information such as the type and magnitude of the fault, and indicates how close an event is to causing an AFCI to trip.SIEMENS ENERGY & AUTOMATION
Milwaukee unveiled the 2276-21 M12 cordless laser Temp-Gun thermometer, which runs on the Li-ion system and is specifically tailored for electricians. The unit can safely measure temperatures between -40ºF to 1472°F, with a 40:1 distance-to-spot ratio. The thermometer was designed with embedded non-contact voltage detection and LED lights; it boasts a pistol grip, as well as over-moulding for increased durability and grip.CLICK HERE for VIDEOMILWAUKEE
Milwaukee introduced a voltage detector with worklight; it runs on AAA batteries and doubles as a mini-flashlight. The 3.5-in. long detector provides a range of 90-600vAC, and will attach to the mainframe of the Milwaukee laser temp-gun and digital multimeter to increase their usability.CLICK HERE for VIDEOMILWAUKEE
Milwaukee introduced clamp meters to its line of test & measurement products, with a feature set specifically tailored to electricians (and HVAC/R technicians). The 2237-20 boasts embedded non-contact voltage detection and LED worklights, frequency and true-rms measurements. The meter has a 1.3-in. jaw opening for large conductors, a thin jaw profile for tight spaces and a high-contrast, white-on-black display. Rated Cat III 600V.
