Current Direction Feature and Accessories Enable Cable Identification in Congested Areas
Radiodetection’s advanced current direction (CD) feature, provided by the RD8000PDL Multifunction Pipe and Cable Locator and the TX-10 transmitter, enables operators to trace their target utility. CD accessories increase the feature’s effectiveness, making it easier for operators to pick a target line from among a group of bunched or parallel utilities.
The CD transmitter clamp is used to induce the CD signal onto the target utility when direct connection isn’t possible, convenient or permitted. Users can also use the clamp to induce low frequency signals onto cables for ordinary location work.
Once a CD signal has been applied to a target line, an operator can use the CD stethoscope to identify it among a number of parallel or bunched utilities by applying the stethoscope to each in turn. The stethoscope and the RD8000PDL visually alert the operator when it is on to the target line.

Optically Clear, Highly Flexible Epoxy Cures at Room Temperature
For applications where highly flexible, impact resistant bonds are required, Master Bond developed Polymer System EP37-3FLF. This optically clear, two component epoxy has high resistance to cryogenic temperatures and severe thermal cycling. Its low exotherm also makes it a very good potting, encapsulating and casting system, especially where wider cross section thicknesses are specified. Its combination of properties allows it to cure without stressing delicate electronic components.
Serviceable over the range of 4K to 250F, EP37-3FLF cures at room temperature in two to three days or faster at elevated temperatures. The epoxy offers a convenient, non-critical, one to one mix ratio by weight or volume, and a low mixed viscosity of 1,400 to 1,500 cps. In addition, users can work with a 100 gram mass of the adhesive at room temperature for up to 90 minutes.

Transportable Fuel Tanks Are Department of Transportation Approved
Offering a high level of environmental compliance, Transcube’s line of transportable fuel tanks are Department of Transportation (DOT) approved for road transportation and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 142 certified for safe diesel fuel storage. The double-walled tanks provide 110-percent secondary containment of the inner container’s total capacity to eliminate the risk of spills and contamination, making them very useful for equipment and power rental fleets, fuel suppliers and end users.
Internally baffled to prevent the surge of fuel during transport, Transcube tanks have DOT approval for transportation of diesel fuel, unlike traditional fuel tanks that are not designed for traveling on the road. This gives the units the versatility to be deployed to remote locations while full of fuel as well as the ability to be removed from a site with fuel still inside.
Transcube models include the 05TCG, 10TCG, 20TCG and 30TCG, offering capacities of 132, 264, 528 and 792 gallons, respectively. The tanks are designed with an inner fuel container and an outer wall that provides 110-percent integral secondary containment, in contrast to traditional tanks that require a separate containment pan.

Thermal Imaging Line Expanded With Higher Resolution HeatSeeker 160 Camera
IDEAL Industries’ HeatSeeker 160 thermal imaging camera is for electricians and maintenance engineers who need a highly accurate, easy-to-use troubleshooting solution at a price they can afford.
The IDEAL HeatSeeker 160 features a Class II laser and delivers a higher resolution thermal image (160 x 120, 19,200 pixels) and a two-megapixel visual image for ultra-sharp images in a wide temperature range of 14F to 482F with an industry standard accuracy of plus/minus 2C. Designed for non-contact preventive maintenance, it identifies potential problems before they occur by detecting hot spots on motors, switch gear, processing pipes, compressors and fuse panels.
Key to the success of the HeatSeeker 160 is that it is fully radiometric, meaning it will capture temperature measurements over the entire image. Four cursors, moveable anywhere on the live 3.5-inch LCD screen, can be selected to identify the hottest and coldest temperatures in real time.
To precisely locate problem areas and give the user a better frame of reference, images can be graphically displayed in adjustable blends of the actual photographic image and the thermal image from 100 percent thermal to 100 percent visual.

PD Cable Monitor Adds Continuous Testing of Medium and High Voltage Cables
EA Technology has a developed a new system that continuously monitors partial discharge (PD) activity in all types of live MV/HV cables up to 2.5 miles in length. Called the PD Cable Monitor, it uses radio frequency current transformer (RFCT) sensors that plug into the company’s existing UltraTEV Monitor and displays PD activity as picocoulombs (pC). It also functions as an alarm system, automatically alerting operators if PD activity reaches critical levels in any cable being monitored.
The PD Cable Monitor adds a sixth measurement capability to the UltraTEV Monitor, which already features five sensor technologies for measuring PD activity in switchgear and transformers, together with the environmental conditions which influence it: ultrasonic, transient earth voltagesm (TEV), relative humidity, atmospheric pressure and temperature.
The PD Cable Monitor is offered for purchase as an add-on module for the UltraTEV Monitor or can be deployed as part of a field service by EA Technology technicians. It can be installed permanently or for short periods.
The standard package provides users with a real-time graphical display of PD activity on the UltraTEV Monitor’s web-enabled hub, using a variety of parameters, including severity, magnitude and pulse count.
