SureStart Low Voltage Disconnect Switch
The Cole Hersee SureStart Low Voltage Disconnect (LVD) Switch electronically senses battery voltage and conserves starting power by disconnecting non-critical loads and by prolonging battery life by preventing battery damage due to excessive discharge. This switch is very useful for heavy-duty vehicles, as well as vehicles with ancillary on-board equipment–such as snowplows, hoists, pumps, floodlights, etc., as well as in-cab amenities such as A/C.
The SureStart LVD switch has a rating of 100A at 12V or 24 Vdc. Its service life exceeds 1,000,000 on/off cycles, and it also features a manual override function that allows users to connect or disconnect the switch when needed, regardless of voltage. The switch features a compact size (4.5" x 4" x 4.27") that makes it easy to install into a new or old vehicle. Unlike many voltage monitoring devices, the SureStart LVD switch does not require a separate solenoid to control high current–making it reliable and simple to install.
Cole Hersee's LVD Switch eliminates dead batteries by automatically disconnecting non-critical loads from a battery when the battery falls below a predefined threshold.

500 kV Digital Voltage Indicators
HD Electric Company's new DVI-500 digital voltage indicators are a new addition to the firm's digital voltage indicator line. The DVI is a direct contact, compact instrument designed to read the voltage on a conductor from 0.1 kV up to 500 kV line-to-ground and display the voltage on a large 3-digit, ultra-bright LED display.
The display is easy to read on the end of a long hotstick and can be used on overhead lines or in underground applications. The DVI-500T can also measure elbow test points. An audible indication is given when voltage is detected and allows the user to distinguish between nominal and induced voltages

Flex-angle Drill Completes Steep-angle Geothermal Loop Installations
Vermeer Corp. has introduced two new products designed specifically to assist with geothermal field loop installations. The Navigator D20x22FX Series II will be the industry's first flex-angle drill capable of drilling at any specified angle ranging from 18 to 90 degrees. It's engineered with input and feedback from contractors who specialize in geothermal loop system installations.
Capable of completing vertical and steep-angle geothermal loop installations, the Navigator D20x22FX Series II is also a fully functioning horizontal directional drill that can install horizontal loops as well as conventional utilities. This feature offers exceptional adaptability in meeting varying project specifications.
The Navigator D20x22FX Series II flex-angle drill comes equipped with an automated rod loader that is modeled after a conventional HDD rod loader with modifications to operate at the fully vertical position. This feature eliminates the need to manually handle each rod, enhancing productivity and operator safety. The auto-drill feature allows the operator to set thrust/pullback speed, pressure or rotation modes and revert back to original setting with the simple push of a button.
To complement the Navigator D20x22FX Series II, Vermeer has also introduced the GM30 grout mixer. The GM30 model will provide convenient and efficient mixing of grout for residential or commercial geothermal loop installations. The unit will be available with either single or dual tank configurations, as well as a centrifugal or high-pressure piston pump to meet the specific needs of contractors.
