Eirgrid, the Irish transmission system operator, has ordered a 500-megawatt (MW) transmission system using HVDC Light (high-voltage direct current), an ABB technology with environmental benefits that include neutral electromagnetic fields, oil-free cables, low electrical losses, and compact converter stations. The solution also provides features such as 'black start' capability, a way of restoring power after a blackout without the aid of external energy sources.
Klein Tools introduced its new line of ten flashlights (Cat. Nos. X3, X5, X7, X9, X11, X19, X21, X35, X44 and X79), with advanced technology LEDs that provide superior light.
