President Barack Obama's multi-billion dollar stimulus package for smart grid technologies is good news for start-up companies like Consert, which will soon launch a pilot project to demonstrate its energy management system that combines hardware and software designed to save consumers money and keep utilities operating effectively and efficiently.

Consert, Inc., based in Raleigh, N.C., provides a market-driven, incentive-based solution to utilities, residences and small businesses by which they can conserve energy, save money, eliminate the need for new construction of peak-consumption generator facilities and begin the transition to alternative, renewable energy sources. In addition to a patent-pending method to locate, measure, aggregate and verify carbon savings, a Consert smart grid can report and manage alternative energy sources which facilitates the installation of solar and wind generators as well as the adoption of plug-in hybrid vehicles.

Designed for production, Eraser's Model C200 Twin Blade Rotary Wire Stripper and Twister can process insulations such as Teflon, P.T.F.E., PVC, nylon, rubber, KEL-F and more from solid and stranded wires. The stripping head incorporates a pair of accurately adjustable tungsten carbide stripping blades. The blades are easily adjusted and remain on center. By reversing the belt, the unit may be operated with either clockwise or counterclockwise rotation. The slug may be left on the wire and removed later when terminated. Wire guides are not included and must be purchased separately.
