Connector and Coupling Options to Keep Conductors Dry

Electrical fittings are everywhere in home and business distribution systems – so much so, you might think they’re all interchangeable. But for contractors working in multiple indoor and outdoor locations, that’s not the case. Not all connectors or other fittings offer the same level of protection for the cabling running through them, which is why matching this hardware to its specific applications is so important.

May it be a light to you … when all other lights go out

If you're a J.R.R. Tolkien fan, you recognized that headline reference. Or if you're a movie buff and watched the Lord of the Rings trilogy, you're familiar with the little jar of liquid that lit up when you talked to it.

But in any case, if you're an electrician, you've been in dark places because of power outages or new construction.

I've been in my share of them, for sure.

Corrosion Resistance and Precise Casting Give Contractors Something to Zinc About

A number of materials can be used to manufacture electrical connectors and couplers, with steel and zinc leading the pack. Each material has its advantages that can make it more appropriate for specific applications, but it’s important to remember that all such fittings have to meet specific requirements to gain a UL listing. For example, die-cast zinc alloy offerings can add value where corrosion is a threat.

Addressable Detectors Help Limit the Nuisance of False Alarms

According to the National Fire Protection Association’s most recent numbers, up to 8 percent of all fire calls are the result of a false alarm. In 2018, that statistic translated into 2.8 million false alarm responses. Such events are both dangerous and expensive, and they are often caused by equipment failure rather than deliberate vandalism. Today’s addressable sensors and other initiating devices include self-monitoring capabilities that can help reduce false alarms and the aggravation and expense that go along with them.
Current Transformers – and How to Protect Them

Current Transformers – and How to Protect Them

Once upon a time, the only reason building codes addressed electrical metering was to enable local utility billing efforts. Today, though, metering is seen as a critical tool in efforts to boost our buildings’ energy efficiency. With the understanding that we can’t manage what we don’t measure, the latest energy standards are calling for greater use of submetering of individual building systems – and that means even greater use of current transformers (CTs).
