newGear BRUTUS™ DESIGNED TO WITHSTAND VIBRATION, WIND WHIPPING, SEVERE APPLICATIONS EYE LIGHTING, A LEADING manufacturer of HID lamps based near Cleveland, introduces the BRUTUS family of Pulse Start Metal Halide lamps; the first MH lamp designed with four extra heavy duty braces to prevent weld, electrical and arc-tube failures caused by shock and vibration. Commercial, industrial and utility customers will experience reduced maintenance costs and long lamp life with BRUTUS MH Lamps. EYE has conducted drop-tests, 7G tests, and severe vibration tests and found that Brutus keeps burning while other models fail. BRUTUS is designed for severe applications such as high mast, bridges, tunnels, parking lots, roadways, roadway construction, prisons, mining, docks and refineries, because standard metal halide lamps often fail in these rough service conditions. For example, in bridge lighting applications, fixtures can be exposed to simultaneous, multiple sources of vibration and shock caused by wind-whipping, heavy truck traffic and train crossing resulting in severe vibration. Customers have become accustomed to short life spans in these applications, but BRUTUS now offers service life typical of standard MH lamps. BRUTUS is currently available in 250W, 320W, 350W, and 400W models.

The single-beam FlowScout 600 acoustic flow meter is capable of reaching up to 110 meters in range with an accuracy of up to 0.5% +/- 2.0 mm/s. The operating frequency of the FlowScout 600 system is 600 kHz. The standard depth rating of the system is 100 meters. The FlowQuest system is typically used to precisely measure water velocities in water channels and rivers. It can be easily installed on an irrigation channel bank, a bridge abutment, or a river bank. LinkQuest has invested extensively in state-of-the-art R&D and production technologies to reduce the overall system cost, and has ensured high cost effectiveness of the FlowScout 600 system for very large scale deployments for water resource management and environmental monitoring. With its highly competitive cost and high accuracy, the FlowScout 600 system is a perfect choice for longterm real-time monitoring of water flow and velocities in water channels, rivers, ports, harbors and estuaries.
