    Nora Lighting expands its low profile, surface-mounted Opal LED Series with the new AC Opal. The AC Opal does not require a driver and mounts easily over a standard J-Box, even pancake-type fixture boxes in retrofits or new construction.

    AC Opal measures just 7/8” deep by 7 ¼” wide. The low profile is ideal for bathrooms, laundries, utility areas, pantries, closets, showers and more. The fixture is dimmable and produces even illumination with 1050 lumen (15W) at 90+CRI.  A white polymer lens diffuser eliminates LED diode images.

    The family of Push-in CAGE CLAMP® PCB Terminal Block complete the roll out of the new additions to WAGO solutions. This new family is composed of three series (2624, 2626, 2636) offering streamlined, compact connections for all wire types. Solid and ferruled wires can be directly pushed in for connection, while tool-actuated termination is available parallel to the conductor entry for stranded wire and for the release of all wire types. These PCB terminal blocks are perfect for panel feed through applications because operation and wire entry are from the same plane.

    Real estate in industrial and factory buildings is nearly always at a premium, so instead of using expensive space unnecessarily, Hammond Manufacturing offers a range of three sizes of fold down shelves. FDS Series shelves can be mounted either to the internal or external surface of the door or to the side of a cabinet. The shelves, rated at 100 lbs capacity, lock solidly up into the horizontal position when required and then fold down out of the way to save floor space when they are not needed.

    A new 200 W LED driver from the ADVANCED range – a high-performance component for high-bay industrial luminaires – has been added to Tridonic’s industrial portfolio. The 0-10 V dimmable driver cannot fail to impress thanks to its unniversal input voltage range, IP 67 protection and high temperature resistance.
