  • New Hubbell LED Blocks Harmful Blue Light

    While LED lighting is all the rage across a number of industries, for years some industries have been “singing the blues” when it comes to LEDs.

    That’s because almost all existing LED lighting creates harmful blue-spectrum light that can result in photochemical degradation and photo-oxidization. Pharmaceutical and semiconductors manufacturers, for example, cannot expose many of their products during manufacture to harmful blue-spectrum light.

  • Cord Grips Give Power Cables Some Needed Support

    While most of us are used to shin-high or lower electrical outlets, industrial plants often use ceiling- or wall-mounted buses for power distribution. These systems can keep power connections flexible as manufacturing floors are rearranged, but they also can add stress to power cables if their connection to an overhead outlet is the only thing holding them in place. Cord support grips address this problem by taking stress off the cable and helping to maximize uptime and minimize equipment damage.

  • Energy Efficient Lighting – Control Systems

    In a previous article, we talked about energy efficient lighting with regards to incandescents and other sources of illumination. Even though they cost a little more to acquire, LEDs are more energy efficient. And, that means saving money on utility bills as well.

    But, the type of lamp or fixture isn't the only factor when it comes to energy efficient lighting. It's not just what you use, but how you use it. Lighting automation, often integrated into a so-called "smart" building, can save even more energy.
