Wireless Current Sensor RIBXJF-ENFunctional Devices, Inc. is pleased to announce our new Wireless Current Sensor RIBXJF-EN

This split core fixed current sensor will sense current from 3-150 Amps from a load and in turn will transmit a wireless signal using Enocean’s wireless technology. One of Functional Devices’ wireless relay/repeaters will receive the transmission and will switch the load up to 20 Amps. This is a perfect “interlocking load” solution. This wireless interlocking solution is designed to save time and cost of hard wiring. Providing cost effective resource saving and innovative solutions is integral to Functional Devices’ effort to provide “green” solutions to building managers. Second generation versions will include combining the wireless relay and current sensor in one plenum rated housing to provide a device that can be installed remotely giving status of the load back to a controller as well as handling the switching.   For more information visit for detailed product information go to

IndigoVision launches a low-cost IP-CCTV Video WallIndigoVision launches a low-cost IP-CCTV Video Wall

IndigoVision, the leading manufacturer of complete end-to-end IP security solutions, has released Video Wall software that allows professional fully-featured IP-CCTV control room video walls to be built to any size, at a fraction of the cost of other dedicated display products. Based on ‘Control Center’, the company’s Security Management Software, video walls can be constructed with complete scalability using any PC monitor type (CRT, LCD and plasma), with standard or High Definition wide-screen format. The video wall is driven using slave ‘Control Center’ workstations, each of which manages up to 4 monitors. Up to 98 slaves can be controlled over the IP network from an unlimited number of master ‘Control Center’ workstations. Each monitor can display up to 25 video panes, allowing video walls with up to 9,800 panes to be constructed. For more information visit

WattStopper publishes new Digital Lighting Management catalog

SANTA CLARA, CA November 2009 – WattStopper has published a comprehensive catalog for its new Digital Lighting Management product line. Digital Lighting Management (DLM) is an all-digital suite of plug-together lighting controls that automatically configure to the most energy-efficient sequence of operation based on which system components are installed. The result is that DLM meets and exceeds energy code requirements, saves more energy than conventional controls, and provides an unprecedented return on investment for both new construction and retrofit projects. The catalog offers an introduction to the DLM line as well as application guidance for several common building space types. The application section focuses on space types, such as private offices, that are found in nearly every type of non-residential facility and provides DLM solutions that scale from basic code compliance to beyond code energy performance. These applications illustrate how users can build incrementally on the initial DLM investment to boost both energy savings and return on investment (ROI). The product catalog also includes individual cut sheets for every DLM product, including room controllers, occupancy sensors, personal controls including digital wall switches and handheld remotes, daylighting sensors, configuration tools, and accessories. The catalog is available in both print and electronic editions.  For more information visit

EtherCAT® BoxBeckhoff Releases Flexible EtherCAT® Box I/O with Switchable Inputs and Outputs

Multi-Trak™ Model 670S Large Duct and Stack High-Performance Multi-Point Mass Flow

Sierra's Multi-Trak™ Model 670S is an advanced state-of-the-art instrument for measuring mass flow rates in very large ducts or stacks that have non-uniform velocity profiles, high turn-down requirements, dirty gas streams, wide temperature ranges and fast velocity and temperature changes. The Multi-Trak™ dynamically compensates for changes in the flow profile by using up to four independent mass flow sensing points to measure the instantaneous average gas mass flow velocity. The Multi-Trak™ is commonly used in petrochemical refining, coal-fired electric power generation, steel manufacturing and many other industrial processes that face the challenge of accurate and repeatable gas mass flow measurement in very large pipes or ducts.  For more information visit
