Megger (Norristown, PA) now offers a
handheld, high current micro-ohmmeter
that delivers up to 240 A of current. The new
MOM2 is ideal for testing busbar and cable
joints as well as carrying out contact resistance measurements on low-, medium-, and
high-voltage circuit breakers. Features of the
lightweight, versatile MOM2 include:
• DualGround testing for circuit breakers,
allowing both sides of a circuit breaker to
be earthed while testing and eliminating
potential hazards from induced voltages.
• A rugged design, making it optimal for work in the field.
• The ability to operate from rechargeable batteries that give
over 2,000 measurements per charge, meaning this high
current micro-ohmmeter can be used to carry out a full day’s
testing in locations where no power supply is available.
• Ultra-capacitor technology, which generates high output
current and achieves its unique combination of size, weight,
The ELECT XL150 all-electric tube bender from BLM GROUP USA (Wixom, MI)
brings advanced levels of accuracy and productivity to the bending of tubes up to six
inches in diameter. The unit can handle difficult applications with little or no straight
between bends, or where tight radius bends are required. The ELECT XL150 boasts an
array of productivity and accuracy enhancing features, including:
• Precise control and positioning of its electric axes, ensuring that optimum working
parameters can be reproduced exactly, without reliance on operator expertise.
• Multi-stack tooling (up to eight stacks), allowing several bend tools to be pre-mounted to minimize tool changeover.
• A direct gearbox drive within the compact head assembly, which gives the ELECT XL150 much greater clearance around the
bend head area. The machine also combines conventional and variable radius bends in the same automatic bend cycle.
Safe Drum Lifter
The Morse (East Syracuse, NY)
86-SS below-the-hook drum lifter is a
high performance option in the drum
lifter line. Model 86-SS in 304
stainless steel is ideal for food,
pharmaceutical, and other
applications where cleanliness
and wash down are essential.
• More corrosion resistance than non-stainless
• An important design
advantage where the
drum is supported below
by two bars, and secured
around the girth by a
positive grip cinch chain
with a ratchet mechanism,
making it a safety-con-
scious hoist attachment.

Inverter Scroll Compressor
Danfoss (Baltimore, MD) has announced it will extend its inverter scroll
compressor range VZH in 2014 to include three new models. The variable
speed VZH compressors provide superior efficiency at part-load condi-
tions, can improve efficiency by more than 30 percent compared to fixed-
speed compressors, and offer precise cooling capabilities. The new invert-
er scroll compressor range VZH will introduce cooling capacities between
4 and 6.5TR with a single compressor, and up to 13 tons with a
manifold configuration. With a permanent magnet motor
and patented Danfoss Intermediate Discharge Valves (IDV),
which can help improve part-load efficiency by up to 24
percent, the new variable speed compressor range VZH will
facilitate efficiency ratings up to 21 IEER
and can modulate from 15 to 100 RPS.
Additionally, a pre-qualified package,
including the Danfoss inverter scroll
compressor VZH and drive optimized
to work together, is fully integrated to
save time in unit development, ensure
a more reliable solution to improve
product time to market, and enhance
overall system efficiency.
DC-Com Chain Hoist Range
The Demag (Wetter, Germany)
DC-Com chain hoist range, which can
be supplied in four sizes for loads
weighing from 80 to 2,000 kg, offers
double the service life, increased duty
factor, and higher resistance to temperature. The enhancements of these
successful chain hoists, which are used
all over the world, have led to a new
FEM classification. This has resulted in a
doubling of their service life, since all five sizes
are now classified in the next highest group of
mechanisms according to FEM rule 9.511. At the
same time, the duty factor has been increased by
50 percent for units as of size 2, i.e. for all types
that have a load capacity of 160 kg and higher.
These characteristics also apply to applications
in higher ambient temperatures. There are no
restrictions for the duty factor at temperatures up
to 45 oC. Demag DC-Com chain hoists can also
be used at ambient temperatures up to 60 oC,
thus offering customers even more benefits.
