New Products Showcase: Part 1
HyPower Digger Derrick System
The Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference in Williamsburg, Va. provided an appropriate venue for the public launch of the new HyPower hybrid system adapted to a digger derrick. Terex Utilities introduced the latest addition to its extensive green product line in the form of a Commander 4047 derrick.
This latest product rounds out Terex Utilities' Plug-in Electric Hybrid line that has been optimized and built for the electric utility, tree care and telecommunications industries. The HyPower hybrid system, a patent-pending technology, allows the customer to save fuel and reduce emissions while allowing operators to function in a relatively quiet work environment.
The HyPower Digger Derrick product is cited to now gives customers the best platform to use when greening their fleet. Not only is the system capable of being retrofit onto existing chassis but, because it's non-intrusive to the OEM drive-line, customers can perform the jobs they've always done with their equipment such as towing pole trailers, reel trailers, and other tools and supplies to the job site.

New BURNDYWeld QIKLITE Exothermic Ignition System
BURNDY announces the BURNDYWeld QIKLITE battery operated ignition system for exothermic connections. This new system uses innovative technology combined with traditional features and benefits.
The BURNDY QIKLITE unit is the only remote exothermic system that guarantees ignition 100 percent of the time. The self-contained unit offers a built-in battery life indicator, 6-foot igniter cord, and separate buttons for power and ignition. Also, no starting powder is used with this system–so emissions are greatly reduced.
QIKLITE works with standard molds and weld metal, so contractors and installers can continue to use the same quality BURNDYWeld products and have the option of using a traditional flint igniter or the new QIKLITE system.

Large PVC Junction Boxes
One of the more innovative products now available from Midwest Plastic Fabricators is a line of NEMA 4X large dimension screw cover PVC junction boxes. A combination of modern UL listed materials and patented technology is combined for easy installation and reduced life cycle cost.
The large junction boxes are offered in sizes up to 48 inches to provide access for wire pulling and connection for conduit system and remote service equipment. The shoebox-style lid has a UL listed gasket and is attached with factory supplied stainless steel fasteners.
PVC offers less resistance than metal in cutting holes for conduit entrances. As non-conductive material, PVC also eliminates potential shock hazards. Its non-corrosive properties offer longer life and environmental integrity.
The manufacturing method uses CAD/CAM and CNC technology to make enclosures, cabinets and boxes for conduit and control systems. Materials are UL94V-0 flame rated, are tested to UL50 and are ETL listed.

Infrared Thermometer Brings Point and Shoot Simplicity to Temperature Measuring
IDEAL Industries Inc. brings enhanced safety to maintenance professionals with its infrared (IR) non-contact thermometer. Leveraging IR heat-sensing technology, the thermometer allows users to measure surface temperatures of live circuits, difficult-to-reach objects or moving parts from a comfortable distance to create a safer work environment. Regular monitoring of heat emitted from surfaces can prevent potential problems and failures.
Along with electrical troubleshooting and preventive maintenance applications, the thermometer is a very good solution in the HVAC, health and safety, food preparation and process control fields. To add to its versatility and value, a built-in socket supports Type K thermocouple probes, allowing obstructed areas to be reached.
In addition to its 12:1 distance-to-spot ratio, this point-and-shoot style thermometer features a wide temperature range of -76F to 932F (-60C to 500C) and a built-in laser pointer that identifies the center of the measurement area.
