    Fulham Introduces New LED Exit Signs Designed for Outdoor and Wet Applications

  • May 03, 2017

    Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, has added two new Wet Location LED Exit Signs to its FireHorse emergency lighting product line. The new, UL 924-listed products feature slim enclosures that are resistant to non-hazardous dust environments, corrosive atmospheres, hose-down water spray, or splashing water.

    The FHEX26 Wet Location LED Exit Sign features energy-saving LEDs with a maintenance-free NiCd battery that provides 90 minutes of emergency lighting. The sign is double-sided and housed in a 12.625-inch by 8.125-inch corrosion and impact-resistant thermoplastic casing.

    The FHEC34 Wet Location LED Exit Sign/Emergency Light Combo Unit is a double-faced LED exit sign in a compact enclosure that measures 12.563 inches wide by 8.063 inches high. It features two 3.6V, 1.17W weatherproof plastic lamp heads to provide egress path lighting in case of power failure. The lamps provide a maximum initial light output of 170.6 lumens, and during emergency operation, the unit relies on a NiCd battery to deliver 90 minutes of emergency illumination.

    “Our new series of FireHorse wet location emergency lights are designed to provide LED energy savings and offer a compact design so they can be installed almost anywhere, which simplifies inventory for both installers and wholesalers,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. “They also have remote capable versions, which means that our FHEM12RH remote heads lights can be added for higher output. We see a big demand for these in hospitals, schools, office buildings, and other applications where exterior emergency signs are needed, or where signs need to be waterproof to withstand sprinkler systems and other environmental hazards.”

    The new FireHorse Wet Location LED Exit Signs are available with either red or green lettering. Remote capable versions provide up to 3W of power for 90 minutes to run additional lamp heads. Both signs are designed for 120/277VAC input, and come with a five-year warranty.
    Fulham’s line of FireHorse emergency lighting units are available from Fulham locations worldwide. For more information, visit www.fulham.com.

    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.

    Despite the rise in Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone systems, many technicians and installers are not aware of how to troubleshoot network performance issues to ensure VoIP quality, says IDEAL Networks.

    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.
