EmersonEmerson’s new Greenlee phase sequence and motor rotation indicator (5124) is backed by a manufacturer’s lifetime limited warranty, electrical contractors, HVAC/IR and industrial maintenance technicians can use one device to identify motor rotation direction and clockwise or counterclockwise wiring configuration in a three-phase power source — safeguarding to ensure proper installation. The phase sequence and motor rotation indicator is now available.

The new phase sequence and motor rotation indicator is rated CAT III 600V and is CE, CETLUS certified. The phase sequence indicators illuminate when three phase power is detected and phase sequence orientation for three-phase power sources and industrial equipment is identified.  A non-contact motor rotation feature determines the rotation of a running single-phase or three-phase motor and illuminates clockwise or counterclockwise motor rotation LED indicators to detect incorrect wiring and help prevent damage to industrial equipment. The new Phase Sequence and Motor Rotation Indicator features tri-colored banana leads, alligator clips, soft carrying case and a durable over molded holster protecting the meter from debris and damage.

“Motor rotation detection is critical when working on industrial equipment such as motors, compressors and generators,” says Katey Earley, Product Specialist for Greenlee, Emerson. “If not done properly, maintenance or repairs could result in expensive, complicated or permanent damage.”

PolycarbonateElectronic waste is a huge issue, with Statista estimating nearly 50 million metric tons were generated globally last year alone.* Some of the materials traditionally used in LED lamp and luminaire components contribute to e-waste, and the industry is seeking more sustainable material alternatives. Thermally conductive (TC) polycarbonates, like those from Covestro, can replace aluminum in heat sinks, providing just such a replacement option. (The back enclosure of the A.L.P. Lighting Recruit wall mount fixture, shown in photo, is injection moulded from Makrolon TC polycarbonate.)

White PaperBy Steven Carlini, Schneider Electric

Internet use is trending towards bandwidth-intensive content and an increasing number of attached “things.” At the same time, mobile telecom networks and data networks are converging into a cloud computing architecture. To support needs today and tomorrow, computing power and storage is being inserted out on the network edge in order to lower data transport time and increase availability. Edge computing places data acquisition and control functions, storage of high bandwidth content, and applications closer to the end user. This white paper explains the drivers of edge computing and explores the various types of edge computing available.

Project DotWhether sitting in a second-floor meeting space, or entering the lobby, it’s impossible not to notice the playful lighting fixtures at Dot Foods, Inc. At night, even passers-by can enjoy the circular fixtures that are visible through the two-storey pane glass windows of its Mt. Sterling, Illinois location.

Dot Foods is the largest food industry redistributor in the U.S. and has been expanding and renovating throughout its headquarters over a couple of years. The main lobby area is the latest to get an upgrade, and as the first point of contact for many entering the facility it had to leave an instant impression.
