The new Ti90 and Ti95 Infrared Cameras with wireless connectivity are ideal for maintenance, troubleshooting, and HVACR technicians, electricians, and facility managers needing to collaborate/share measurements. The cameras deliver quality spatial resolution to conduct infrared inspections from a safer distance without compromising accuracy. The large 3.5-in. color LCD screen has adjustable brightness for easy viewing. A removable eight GB SD memory card or a eight GB wireless SD card is included, making camera-sharing simple. AutoBlend™ and Picture-in-Picture modes are available in the included SmartView® reporting software to easily perform analysis and image adjustments/enhancements. —Fluke Corp.
The Gems XM/XT series are cost-effective, single-float transmitters, designed to provide high-accuracy continuous fluid-level monitoring within smaller, more compact tank environments. The fluid level transmitters are constructed from plastic parts compatible with a variety of chemicals. Designed to serve as effective drop-in replacements using existing tank fittings, they feature 0.14-in. (3.5 mm) resolution; an indicating length to 14-in. (35.5 cm); and a stem length to 20-in. (50.8 cm). The units are available in several mountings and float materials. —Gem Sensors & Controls
Go to Greenheck’s website for a new series of short instructional videos designed to help contractors and facility managers handle common maintenance issues found with HVAC equipment. The video, “How to Adjust Isolators,” shows different types of isolators, lists the tools needed for isolator adjustment, and demonstrates the step-by-step process of adjusting a free-standing fan isolator. To view the video, visit www.greenheck.com and click on the Library link found on the home page navigation bar. Then click on videos. —Greenheck
Johnson Controls expands its line of low-torque actuators with two new models designed to reduce installation costs. The M9104-AGP includes a differential pressure sensor for exhaust or dual-duct VAV applications. It provides high-accuracy flow measurement and reduces installation costs by self-detecting positive or negative pressure on the VAV box. M9104-IUA features line voltage floating controls. Where codes permit, it can be mounted on dampers or valves avoiding the need for transformers. —Johnson Controls
TORAD’s Spool Compressor technology features a simple rotary design with four main components: rotor, main housing, vane, and bearing housing. Unlike scroll and screw compressors employing complex geometries, the components are manufactured using lower cost capital equipment and easily scaled for larger sizes. The design provides advantages in capacity density and variable speed operation, used for refrigerant compression across a broad range of applications and capacities. —Torad Engineering
The new TDWLB pressure/temperature sensor is powered with a coin-cell battery, controlled with a smartphone app, and certified as Bluetooth®smart. Developed for home automation, industrial, marine, and commercial applications, it uses a patent-pending design and proprietary digital circuitry for high-energy efficiency, providing 18- to 24-month battery life and redundant sensing. The app lets users name each sensor one time securely, then program setpoints/alarms for multiple sensors, monitor readings, and graph activity over time. The U.S.-made sensor is available in two different compensated accuracies of 1 percent and 0.25 percent and is designed for intermittent, rather than dynamic, machine-control applications. The sensor produces a high-resolution signal without analog-variability or noise in the circuit, is EMI/RFI protected. —Transducers Direct
BIM (Building Information Modeling) content for heat-tracing solutions is a comprehensive suite of new tools —including BIM families and the Raychem Trace-It Revit add-in— for winter safety applications and hot water maintenance. With this content, architects, engineers, contractors, and building owners can easily incorporate heat-tracing content into their building models to optimize efficiencies and performance. —Pentair Technical Solutions
Siemens introduces the PM240-2 power modules with 230V 3-phase line supply units, for use with Sinamics G120 motion control drives. With a smaller footprint and higher power density than the current PM240 generation, required cabinet size is reduced. Features include a variable-speed fan, quick-connect connectors on the motor and cable sides, and removable terminals for line supply, motor, and braking resistors. Options include braking resistors, input reactors, output reactors, and sine-wave filters. —Siemens
An ASSE 1070-2004 code-compliant mixing valve has been added to the AccuMix series of electric tankless water heaters. The heaters feature a mixing valve and circuit board calibrated to prevent issues during installation.
