The Arrow Hart brand of Cooper Wiring Devices launched ArrowLink SPD modular device connectors. They employ a direct connection to the building wire, thereby taking pigtailing out of the installation process. Available in leaded and non-leaded versions, the company boasts these connectors can reduce installation time by 30-60%. Meantime, clearly marked, consistent configurations minimize the risk of miswiring.COOPER WIRING DEVICES
Coleman Cable introduced an updated line of locking extension cords that keep tools plugged in; when connected to a tool or other electrical devices, these cords provide a positive lock that can be disengaged only when the user chooses. The locking extension cords are ideal for jobsites, workshops and outdoor everyday use. The UL listed extension cords have a durable SJTW jacket that resists moisture, abrasion and prolonged exposure to the elements. They are available in 14 and 12 gauge, and in 50-ft and 100-ft lengths.COLEMAN CABLE INC.
Cooper B-Line announced the release of its fully flexible and configurable cable management system for its access cabinet platforms. This solution provides vertical, horizontal and front-to-rear cable containment options to meet common datacom application demands for both single-bay and ganged cabinets. The cable containment solution manages intercabinet patching and cross connects for structured cabling within EIA-310-D-compliant 19-in. access cabinet platforms. The cabinets themselves feature open architecture construction with no corner posts; the cable management system can, in turn, span between ganged cabinets to fully maximize all available space. Multiple wire lances and a twist-and-lock cable arm mounting option provide additional internal cable management. Components ship pre-assembled for onsite mounting to existing access cabinets or can be factory configured on new ones. A range of accessories and configurations are available.COOPER B-LINE

Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures, manufacturer of fiberglass enclosure products, introduced the NW-Series bonded window enclosures in eight standard sizes. (However, Stahlin is capable of creating any modified N-Series enclosure up to a 41 x 33) The enclosures meet NEMA 250 Type 1, 3R, 4X and 12 standards, feature a temperature range from -76ºF to 266ºF and provide a UL 94-5V flammability rating. The enclosures also feature SolarGuard: a patented, non-haloginated fiberglass system that helps the enclosure retain its gloss and colour.STAHLIN

Appleton Electric has introduced a hybrid version of its XP explosionproof circuit breaker panelboard. By combining IEC technology and CEC/NEC standards in a single design, Appleton feels it has created a panelboard that is ideal for virtually any hazardous industrial location where flammable gasses or vapours are present—especially when used in the protection of lighting and heat tracing circuits. The hybrid XP incorporates a factory-sealed, cast explosionproof enclosure to house the arcing breakers, and a stainless steel terminal enclosure for field terminations. Factory sealing eliminates the need for field wiring and sealing fittings. Incoming/outgoing electrical connections are made in the stainless steel enclosure to secure DIN Rail mounting terminal blocks. Conduit or cable entries are created onsite by using a sheet steel hole punch. Available voltage configurations are 120/240, 120/208, 277/480 or 347/600. The XP hybrid is rated for the Class I, Division 2, Groups B, C, D; and Class I, Zone 1 and 2; and AEx de/Ex de IIB+ H2, T6. Other third-party approvals include NEMA/EEMAC: 3, 4, 4X, 7BCD, 9EFG, 12; and IP66.APPLETON
Storm Copper Components—a manufacturer of copper electrical connectors—has published “Guide to Flexible Electric Connectors”, which is available as a free download from the company’s website. The guide explains how flexible electrical connectors (also called flex braid or flexible jumpers) can solve high-voltage connectivity problems created by vibration from generators, turbines and transformers. In addition to the causes and effects of vibration, the guide simplifies the process of selecting the proper flexible copper electrical connector by offering flex braid specs and purchasing tips.CLICK HERE for the guide.STORM COPPER COMPONENTS

April 26, 2010Legrand/Wiremold’s Evolution work surface portals provide table-top access to electrical, voice/data/video, and audio services. The company says these portals differ from many table-top products in that their covers can fully close, even when equipment is plugged in and being used. The cover assembly features two spring-loaded slide cable egress doors that provide access without using flip lids, doors or pop-ups. Power receptacles and VDV connections are mounted below the table surface, protecting connections and minimizing obstructions on the table surface. The portals are available in 6-in. or 8-in. sizes; other options include surface- or flush-style, and cord-ended or hard-wired versions. Solid, die-cast aluminum covers feature powder-coated colours: Nickel, Bronze, Brass, Grey and Black.LEGRAND/WIREMOLD
April 26, 2010Berk-Tek (a Nexans company) introduced its new 10G limited distance (LD) UTP cable, which features a reduction, says the company, in the cable diameter versus existing Cat 6A UTP cables (0.265-in. diameter). The cable is designed to support IEEE 802.3an 10GBase-T to a maximum distance of 60 metres, specifically in high-density applications like data centres. Berk-Tek 10G LD meets all IEEE 802.3an channel performance requirements when terminated with Cat 6A connectivity; it also meets all TIA-568-C.2 internal requirements for Cat 6A component compliance (500 MHz) at these distances.BERK-TEK
April 26, 2010{mosimage}General Cable has re-engineered its NextGen brand line of 50 micron multimode fiber to include ClearCurve glass technology from Corning.
