A. O. Smith introduced the Product Preservers™ Powered Anode System. The new anodes, which are designed to provide maintenance-free protection for all water types, are available as an upgrade to replace the sacrificial anodes that come as industry standard equipment on tank-style heaters.
Kohler is introducing three new industrial light commercial generator models for stationary emergency applications. The Kohler 25CCL, 30CCL, and 36CCL are 60-Hz generators, which can be fueled by either natural gas or liquid propane and integrate the Kohler APM402 controller as well as a Kohler 2.2-liter turbocharged engine. According to officials, the new generators provide advanced voltage and frequency regulation along with ultra-low levels of harmonic distortion for power quality and enhanced protection for sensitive, valuable electronics.
Seresco USA Inc. has introduced the Natatorium Ventilation (NV)-Series. The company says it is the industry’s most efficient and non-compressorized ventilation system for conditioning natatorium environments with outdoor air and heat recovery, but without compromising IAQ.
Power management company Eaton announced the launch of its heavy duty safety switches with surge protection, the latest in its portfolio of switching devices. Combining Eaton’s safety switches with integrated surge protective devices (SPD) courtesy of the Eaton SP1 and CVX series, the company said this packaged solution provides endusers with better performance than externally mounted devices, resulting in a completely wired, UL®-listed solution and better protection for connected equipment.
Para Systems Inc. has released the Minuteman Entrust LCD Series of UPSs. The company says this new line of uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) offers complete power protection designed to protect valuable equipment.
On Demand Standby generators require electrical protection against potential faults and damage. Selecting the appropriate protective devices and functions often requires striking a balance between protection and continuity of operation. Code requirements for emergency systems and health care facilities, or parallel operation with the utility, can add another layer of complexity to this topic.
