American Superconductor Receives Wire Order for First Superconductor Power Cable to be Deployed in Korea's Commercial Grid

LS Cable to Manufacture and Install 22.9 Kilovolt Superconductor Power Cable System in Korea Electric Power Corporation's Grid Near Seoul

"With the ability to carry vast amounts of electricity in a small right of way, superconductor power cables will play a pivotal role in powering cities in Korea and around the world in the 21st Century," said Joon Hyung Cho, Executive Vice President of LS Cable's Technology Development Group. "We have chosen to work with AMSC on this landmark cable project based on the company's two decades of superconductor leadership, its contributions to LS Cable's past superconductor cable demonstrations and the strength of its new 344 superconductors. We see a billion-dollar opportunity for superconductor cable technology and believe our alliance with AMSC and KEPCO establishes a market leadership position for LS Cable."

Setra Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of pressure measurement devices, introduces the Model 269. The Model 269 is a very low differential pressure transducer offering enhanced accuracies including non-linearity of ±0.15% and ±0.35% full scale, terminal-based for improved resolution in critical environments.
The ultimate solution for in-situ pressure calibration, the Model 269 is provided with a removable process head, allowing for field certification without disturbing the process tubing. Simply detach the header (no need to cut tubing), plug in the Calibration Security Key and verify the performance with its "snap-back" zero/span feature. The product's installation is simplified with either the base mount or din rail easy mount design, along with a removable electrical terminal strip that makes wiring a breeze.
