PRODUCTS building technology EDITORS' CHOICE Smaller-footprint switches Transfer, bypass switches: * Medium voltage (5 to 15 kV) * Smaller footprint than earlier versions * RPTCS control system Medium-voltage (5 to 15 kV) circuit breaker-type automatic transfer switches and bypass/isolation switches have 20% to 50% smaller footprints than earlier versions. UL tested, listed, and labeled under UL 1008A and suitable for use in legally required alternate power systems, the switches transfer electrical loads between preferred and alternate power sources through controlled opening and closing of circuit breakers. Switches can be configured for open- or closed-transition transfer. Designed for unattended operation, they include controls for manually initiated operation. Switch functions are controlled by the company's RPTCS programmable microprocessor-based control system and meet or exceed IEEE, NEMA, and ANSI standards. Russelectric, Hingham, MA Circle 93 Paralleling system IP/analog keyboard SPC-7000 IP/analog hybrid keyboard controller for IP and analog PTZ cameras, recorders, and network software provides a versatile solution for migration from analog to IP-based surveillance systems. Incorporating a keyboard and joystick controls and used with the company's SmartViewer surveillance software and SSM video-management platform, the solutions increase the controller's flexibility by ensuring it is compatible with DVRs and NVRs in addition to camera control. Hanwha Techwin America, Ridgefi eld Park, NJ Circle 94 Series 300 generator paralleling system is a pre-packaged, transfer-switch-based power system for paralleling generators. For load management for mid-tier installations, the system parallels 2 to 4 gen-set installations and manages 4 to 8 transfer switch load blocks. The UL 891-listed compact system enables managing generators by runtime usage, assigned priority, or load requirement. It also includes the ability to distribute power by load prioritization and to control load bus optimization, generator load demand, and generator power metering. The Series 300 is available from 208 to 600 V. ASCO Power Technologies, Florham Park, NJ Circle 95 Cyber-secure IP video solution Genetec Inc. and SecureXperts have collaborated on an IP video solution said to be resilient against unauthorized access, malware, brute-force cracking, and other exploit techniques. The system uses Credentialed High Assurance Video Encryption (CHAVE) technology to reportedly provide highly secure identification and authentication through multi-factor smart-card credentials. CHAVE-enabled cameras meet Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 140-2 Level 3 certified encryption standards.
