manufactures another young career


able cleat manufacturer and industry innovator, Ellis Patents has once again demonstrated its commitment

to developing young careers in North Yorkshire by taking on a new apprentice mechanical engineer. Adam Sweeting (18) joins from Scarborough University

Technical College and is the latest in a long line of apprentices taken on by the Rillington-based manufacturer. At present virtually 20 per cent of its 50 strong workforce started as apprentices – including all five members of its full-time tool room and metal work teams. Danny Macfarlane, managing director of Ellis Patents,

said: “We have a rich tradition of bringing on apprentices and are extremely proud of just how many have stayed and built their careers with us.” Adam is doing his apprenticeship through Malton-

based Derwent Training Association, which has close associations with Ellis Patents – with both Danny Macfarlane and chairman, Richard Shaw on its board. “As a business we are viewed in two very distinct ways,” added Danny.

ur new addition to the Lighting Connection range, Klik Black, provides the installation and

aesthetic benefits that specifiers are seeking in open ceiling applications. Capitalising on all the features of the Klik 4 Range, Klik Black aims to offer contractors with an extended application range to conform to project requirements.

Established as a market leader in plug and play

lighting connection, Hager has recently launched Klik Black – an extension to their staple lighting connection range, Klik. While mirroring all the features and benefits of Klik 4 Pin, Klik Black provides installers with a low visibility solution that’s ideal for open or semi open ceiling applications.

The new addition offers installers and building

managers with a wider application selection to accommodate project specifications. Klik Black aims to blend seamlessly into dark settings where darker products are used, thus hiding in plain sight.

“We frequently received requests from our customers that showed a strong need for a low visibility

lighting connection system. We listened to the needs of our customers and developed a solution that incorporated all the benefits of our Klik range while also encompassing a design suited for open celling applications.” said Product Manager, John Appleton.

Products included in the Klik Black range: • Marshalling boxes • Pluggable ceiling roses • Klik 4 pin plugs & sockets • Occupancy sensors

Ideal for a commercial or retail setting, Klik Black delivers compliance of the necessary BS Standards for

lighting connection and electrical safety. With its plugs, sockets, PCR, marshalling boxes and even its matching sensors, Klik Black will not only save time on-site, but contractors can remain confident that they are installing a secure and aesthetically pleasing solution.

Hager New, efficient AC/DC mA Current

Transformer for Electric Vehicle Charging B

ender has developed a new, compact, PCB mount mA current transformer for use in electric vehicle

charging applications. The CTBC17 is designed for use in e-mobility

infrastructure and AC charge station designs to monitor leakage currents in mode three electric vehicle charging. It is suited to AC/DC residual current measurement,

identifying AC and DC residual (ear th fault) currents in combination with charge controllers CC612, CC613 and residual current measurement devices RCMB104 and RDC104. This new current transformer is practical and more cost

effective for integrators to use and install into charging solutions. It measures currents in accordance with IEC 62752 and 62955, ensuring safe, compliant charging. It is supplied as either direct PCB mount or cable

harness connection - with optional connecting cable available in various lengths when supplied for use with a charge controller.

Technical features: • Suitable for AC/DC sensitive residual current measurement and monitoring

• Fully equivalent to the older model W15BS measuring current transformer

• Cost-effective PCB variant for PCB mounting • Internal diameter 17 mm, suited for the use of supply lines with a large conductor cross section

• Connecting cable available in lengths: 180, 325 and 1470mm • Integrated shielding of CT to avoid external interference • Suitable for AC and DC fault current monitoring in charging mode 3 in combination with CC612, CC613, and RDC104-4 and RCMB104-4

• Rated voltage/current: 230 V/80 A (single-phase) and 400 V/32 A (three-phase)
