New partnership for toolkits and supplies J

TL, training provider for electrical apprenticeships, has announced a new partnership with electrical distributor, Edmundson Electrical, as

part of its annual free toolkit initiative. For the last four years, JTL has been distributing free toolkits to

apprentices who are on a qualifying apprenticeship. Edmundson Electrical will be providing the toolkits to apprentices up and down the country, to ensure that every electrical apprentice is equipped for the job in hand. JTL’s chief executive, Jon Graham, says: “Providing a free toolkit to


ean Well has launched its fanless solution-UHP series. Ever since the UHP-200/350/500/750/1000 series were released, Mean Well has

shipped over 350,000 units worldwide. Now, the company is expanding to higher power coverage by releasing

the 1500W UHP-1500. The fanless design solves customer headaches regarding fan failures caused by absorbing dust, and it can reduce the frequency and cost of device maintenance. The fanless design can also solve fan noise level issues, making it suitable for quiet environments. UHP-1500 is Mean Well’s conduction-cooled series of power supplies,

equipped with a communication function and built-in PMBus or CANBus. The communication protocols allow the power supply to be seamlessly integrated into high-end systems such as data centres, network equipment and charging systems. The power supply is also equipped with programmable voltage and current (PV/PC) functions, which allow the trimming of output voltage between 50-120 per cent and current between 20-100 per cent by an external DC control signal. The multitude of control protocol and functions allows the UHP-1500 to be suitable for powering all types of loads, including but not limited to, burn-in equipment, charging systems and laser apparatus. Other key features of the UHP-1500 include: compliance to the

EN60335-1 household safety standard; wide operating temperature range of –30°C to +70°C; and low-profile design with only 41mm height.

emtech Corporation has announced the release of its Smart Building Reference Kit, a collection of tools designed to accelerate the

development of smart building solutions based on LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol. The kit will allow users to monitor doors and windows, desk and room

presence, environmental conditions, and detect water intrusion. The kit comes complete with more than 20 sensors, two gateways and a global 4G hotspot for simplified setup. The portable nature of the kit allows users to move sensor locations to assess completeness of network coverage. “Semtech’s Smart Building Reference Kit will empower potential

customers to utilise LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol in the development of their own smart building applications,” said Byron BeMiller, director of vertical marketing for smart buildings in Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Customers will be able to quickly create simple smart building networks without needing to have extensive knowledge of IoT technologies. All tools included in the kit rely on readily accessible PC software.” Through the creation of a self-contained kit, Semtech aims to simplify

the testing of LoRa-based products in a smart building environment and continue to support LoRa-based developers and end users.


every electrical apprentice during their first year is fundamental to our aim of making every apprentice feel an important part of the profession. We are delighted to be working in partnership with Edmundson Electrical and look forward to developing a strategic relationship over the coming years. “We would like to thank SuperRod and Klein Tools for their support

over the past four years. Providing free toolkits has been an important part of our commitment to the sector.” Matt Ward, head of training and development at Edmundson says:

“We are delighted to be partnering with JTL on this initiative. Edmundson is very focussed on apprenticeships and we see this as a superb opportunity to invest in the industry’s future and support the JTL apprentices at the start of their careers. They are the electricians, and hopefully our customers, of tomorrow.”


Remote-controlled power supply P

uls Power has introduced its new DIN-Rail power supply

CP20.241-V1, featuring a remote-controlled ON/OFF feature. This allows system administrators

and building automation controllers to switch the power supply on or off by use of an external signal switch or transistor gate. This remote-control feature makes centralised control of multiple system components very simple to implement and provides a very efficient shut-down facility in the event of system failure or emergency. With a width of only 48mm, PULS has set a new standard in this power

class. The compact design of the CP20 units is made possible due to its efficiency of 95.6 per cent. The devices have been optimised not only for the highest possible peak efficiency at full load, but also provide excellent efficiencies with partial loads. High efficiency levels across the entire load range mean lower energy costs for the users in the usage phase and lower heat generated. The CP20 power supplies also raise the bar for reliability. The units can achieve a service lifetime of at least 94,000 hours at +40°C ambient temperature, 100 per cent load and 230VAC input. Typical applications for PULS DIN-Rail power supplies include: industrial

and process control, building automation, panel-building, test and measurement, instrumentation and communications systems.
