Test facility benefits from new safety tester

  The UK office of TÜV SÜD, a global testing, certification, inspection and training provider, has replaced its older testers with the HAL 103 multi-function safety tester from Clare, represented in South Africa by Test Instruments Africa (TIA). This instrument, which complies to the EN 50191 standard on test environments, performs earth bond, AC/DC high […]

Silicone hybrid optics reduce glare

Bathrooms, warehouses and factories are challenging environments for lighting. Luminaires must withstand the heat and moisture without failing while providing an adequate amount of good quality light. The design of Ledil’s new Saga silicone hybrid optic rises to these challenges. A hyper-reflecting frame catches light spill from the silicone TIR lens and recycles it to […]

Longer LED lifetime even at 135°C

  Excessive heat generation is one of the main reasons why LEDs fail. With the Oslon Square, Osram Opto Semiconductors presents an LED able to withstand high ambient temperatures particularly well. To ensure that the colours of several LEDs in a luminaire remain uniform even at higher temperatures, they are measured and binned at 85°C, […]

Encapsulated area lights for industrial use

  Banner Engineering announces its WLA series of encapsulated area lights. Designed for use in industrial environments, these powerful LED lights are completely encapsulated in optically clear polyurethane, enhancing chemical compatibility and increasing their resistance to shock and vibrations. These are rugged, high intensity lights ideal for machine lighting, visual inspection stations and general industrial […]

Printed linear motors launched

  The new UPL series printed linear motors from INA Drives and Mechatronics (IDAM) offer high cost and energy efficiency. The innovative manufacturing technology works by printing the coils of the motor layer by layer and is the reason for these motors’ outstanding performance. The coils are produced in a multi-layer design based on conventional […]

Flameproof system for underground use

  The Ezesafe flameproof lighting system from Electron Diagnostics & Systems for use on Zone 1 underground walkways, conveyors, and roadways, offers a versatile, four-way junction box and large main supply compartment. Maintenance is simple and quick – a simple twist disengages the ballast and lamp from the main supply. The ballast in this system […]

Modular motor control, power distribution

  The Elsteel Techno Module motor control and power distribution system is a patented, fully modular product which can be built in 200 mm increments in all directions, precisely to clients’ design preference, without any limitations. Confusion exists about which panel board and switchgear to use to comply with the prescriptions of IEC 61439. The […]

Vryburg gets LED street lighting

Beka Schréder’s Ledlume-midi 117 W streetlight luminaires provide the lighting for the main street of Naledi (formerly Vryburg) in the North West Province. The company was awarded the contract to replace the existing 250 W HPS luminaires with the LED luminaires. These luminaires were chosen for their ability to maintain the correct lighting level and […]

Terminal blocks with surge protection

Dehn’s Dehnconnect SD2 surge arresters are designed as space-saving terminal blocks with a width of 6 mm. These terminal blocks with integrated surge protection have a modular disconnect function which allows the user to interrupt the signal circuit for maintenance work. An integrated module ejector disconnects the signal circuit from terminal equipment. The disconnection module […]

High-definition dome positioning system

Schneider Electric has announced the South African launch of its new Pelco Spectra high-definition (HD) 1080 dome positioning system. The new system features a clearer image with stronger resolution, without sacrificing low-light or programmable performance. The line has been a cornerstone of security applications for nearly 20 years, delivering unparalleled reliability, drive/control technology and image […]
