Arc Flash Protection System
The TVOC-2 from ABB’s Low Voltage Products division is a new generation of the company’s Arc Guard System™ that provides enhanced arc flash protection. It detects faults in low- and medium-voltage switchgear and disconnects power provided to the arc within 30 to 50 milliseconds. TVOC-2 is now UL-listed, and when installed with ABB’s Emax circuit breakers, carries a functional safety rating of SIL-2 that confirms the product has achieved the standard required to protect both humans and equipment.

Laser Alignment In Explosive Environs
LUDECA has introduced what it says is the first wireless module certified for laser alignment of machinery in explosive environments. The unit operates with the OPTALIGN smart EX or ROTALIGN smart EX laser shaft alignment systems by PRUEFTECHNIK. Measurement data is transferred between the measurement sensor and alignment computer using the ATEX/IECEx-certified EX RF module, which makes alignment jobs easier and more convenient without compromising operator safety. According to LUDECA, it and PRUEFTECHNIK are the only companies currently offering this capability for equipment alignment in the types of explosive atmospheres that can be found in petrochemical, mining and other process operations.

Environmentally Friendly Removal Of Limescale
ScaleBlaster notes that its environmentally friendly product can eliminate limescale deposits in pipes, cooling towers, boilers and numerous other applications. An integrated circuitry system produces a complex modulating frequency waveform that hits the resonant frequency of calcium molecules, causing them to lose their adhesive properties. Existing scale is removed without the need of chemicals, salt or maintenance.
