A look at what’s new in the market


Cabling for Tough Spaces-Industrial Video & Control Co. (IVC) and Rockbestos-Surprenant Cable Corporation (RSCC) released a networked video solution for hazardous areas. RSCC's Gardex(r) CAT5e is designed for Ethernet communication and Class I Div 1 applications. The cable, tested with IVC cameras up to a distance of 600 feet, is designed for use in extreme temperatures. Its continuously-welded aluminum armoring reduces installation costs by negating the need for conduit.

Housings for Access Control-RS2 Technologies expanded its NCL line of rugged, NEMA approved enclosures. Joining the original 18 x 15 x 4-inch NCLSM enclosure are: NCL-12SM; the NCL-8-SPWSM; and the NCL-12-WMSSM.

Good Things in Small Packages-IndigoVision launched the Compact NVR-AS 3000, a Linux-based standalone device that delivers a powerful recording solution in a compact unit with a very small footprint. It can record and playback 20 MPEG-4 and H.264 video and audio streams simultaneously with a choice of a 500MB or 1TB removable disk.

Control at the Hinge-All Metric Small Parts (aMsp) now offers their MLAT08MTH130B series of viscous dampened hinges, designed to have higher torque, by using a newly developed rotary mechanism. Typical applications include appliances, medical instruments, telecommunication devices, storage cases, audio-visual devices, and more.

This Will Hold Your Literature-Premier Mounts' clip-on brochure holder, the PSD-DBH, for their dual- and single-pole carts and stands, is designed to withstand tough handling and day-to-day use in the rental & staging and exhibit markets. The brochure holder uses a dual- or single-support clamp that can be quickly mounted at any height along the cart or stand poles.

More Rooftop Support For You-ERICO expanded its CADDY(r) PYRAMID line to include three new series of rooftop supports: the CADDY(r) PYRAMID EZ Series Adjustable-Height Tool-Free Rooftop Pipe Supports; the CADDY(r) PYRAMID ST Series Strut-based Thermoplastic Supports (pictured); and the CADDY(r) PYRAMID RL Series Roller-based Thermoplastic Supports. The CADDY PYRAMID line of rooftop pipe supports offers superior load capacity and helps reduce installation time by replacing slow, heavy and labor-intensive methods to support pipe, conduit, duct, cable tray and equipment.

Software Gets Interactive-The Secure Trax(tm) PLUS from G4S is a fully interactive software platform designed to detect, alert, dispatch, respond and verify events in real time. Connecting security officers, the command center and the enterprise's customized, secure business intelligence portal together, the system eliminates paperwork and provides historical performance data to enable security resources to be assigned based on business intelligence and trend analysis.
