    Electric Mobility Canada invites you to the 8th annual national event for electric vehicles, taking place in Markham, Ontario from May 29th to June 1st, 2017. The EV/ Conference and Trade Show is a highly respected event in the EV industry in Canada. Conference committees are working diligently to design a conference program that will bring the latest electric mobility technology trends to you.

    The theme for the 2017 conference is “Smart e-Mobility”: tomorrow’s electric drive will consider the whole EV ecosystem, including optimal utilization of EV fleets, connected cars, autonomous electric vehicles, smart homes, smart grids, microgrids, smart charging, battery technology and many more revolutionary breakthroughs in mobility.

    PowerStream (now Alectra Energy Solutions) is the conference host this year. For many years, PowerStream has been an innovative leader in electric mobility: back in 2011, PowerStream took ownership of the first two Nissan LEAF cars ever delivered in Canada. In August 2014, they were the first in North America to deploy Vehicle-to-Home technology. A few months later, they installed the first publicly accessible DC fast charger at their Vaughan office. Last year, PowerStream partnered with the City of Markham and Nissan to install Ontario’s first municipally owned DC fast charger in Markham.

    Industry 4.0 scenarios such as Predictive Maintenance are based on the provision of data and networked communication. For this to happen, IoT-compatible devices equipped with the necessary communication options are required. With its new IoT interface, Rittal is now laying the foundation for the optimal integration of cooling units and chillers in Industry 4.0 applications. This makes continuous communication from the sensor to the cloud possible, as well as connection to superordinate monitoring or energy management systems.

    TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, introduces the LUMAWISE Endurance N Enhanced base, creating a platform for customers’ rapid development and manufacture of NEMA/ANSI C136.41 compliant street and outdoor lighting control solutions.

    “With this new development, we are helping designers reduce risk in project schedules and cut the cost of design changes by providing a complete base that enables complex control node solutions, so designers can focus their efforts on value-adding innovations,” says Ben Nelson, TE business development manager.

    Megger now offers a new insulation and continuity tester designed specifically for the telecommunications and cable testing markets.  The MIT485/2TC-LG2 replaces Megger’s original MIT480 range tester.

    This handheld instrument features fixed test voltages of 50 V, 100 V, 250 V and 500 V, as well as variable test voltages from 10 V to 500 V. Insulation testing can be performed up to 100 GΩ at 500 V.  A gated access feature to 500 V prevents accidental application of high voltage to sensitive equipment.
