New Fluke laser levels provide precise reference points
luke has introduced Fluke Laser Levels, a new line of professional-grade, precision tools that are designed to survive a one metre drop and keep working.
The Fluke Laser Level family includes:
• Fluke-3PR (red laser) and Fluke-3PG (green laser) Point Laser Levels— self-levelling, three-point laser levels for fast, accurate layout of reference points.
• Fluke-180LR and Fluke-180LG Line Laser Levels— self-levelling, horizontal- and vertical-cross line laser levels for rapid, accurate (3mm at 10 metres) levelling and layout.
• Fluke-LDR and Fluke-LDG Laser Line Detectors — laser line detectors for use in high ambient light settings with visual and audible indicators for ease of use.
• Fluke-180LR System and Fluke-180LG Systems — comprehensive self-levelling, horizontal- and vertical-cross line laser level systems that include laser line detector and detector bracket for use in high ambient light settings.

llis has launched an online learning platform aimed at enhancing both professional development and the understanding of cable cleats around the world. The world’s leading cable cleat manufacturer has taken its UK accredited Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course – Cable cleats: a device for short circuit protection – online so that it can be used by engineering professionals, wherever they are in the world, as part of their on-going programme of career development and learning. Phil Goddard, Ellis’ specification manager,
said: “Our CPD
programme has been running for a number of years and to date we’ve clocked up thousands of miles presenting the course hundreds of times.”
Ellis’ e-learning platform has been designed to provide technical insight and guidance.

£5m Science Centre Goes Green with CP Electronics
environmentally friendly science centre, teaching block and café, thanks in part to the contribution of CP Electronics. The £5m green Science Centre at Barton Peveril Sixth
Form College in Eastleigh, Hampshire, has three storeys and includes nine state-of-the-art laboratories and preparation rooms for the study of biology, chemistry and physics. There is also classroom space, a café and extensive private study areas. The centre was formally opened in December 2015 by Professor Joanna Haigh of Imperial College London, who is
Co-Director of The Grantham Institute for Climate Change. This was particularly appropriate, given that the building was specifically designed to be environmentally friendly.

SWA’s Firefly Fire Safety Clips win 8 awards!
BB has launched a Lunch ‘n’ Learn training session designed to offer a short introduction to harmonics and their effects. Ideal for people with a basic knowledge of electrical installations, the sessions last no longer than 45 minutes and can be held at customer premises or at an ABB facility.
WA’s Firefly Cable Clips have been awarded eight Warrington Fire Safety Certificates for their BS7671 Amendment 3 compliant range of clips.
The Certificates represent a major coup for Firefly as their entire range of inside/outside trunking clips are now proven.
SWA’s Firefly Cable Clips are a unique, spring-
loaded design which embed tighter into substructure as a fire takes hold, making the risk of overhead cables falling almost impossible.
tests at Warrington in July using Prysmian Plus fire alarm cable,
the clips stayed in place as
temperatures reached 930ºC for 120 minute duration. The comprehensive test includes a shock and water spray test.
