2. Use solar-powered lights to avoid increased energy costs

Enjoy the look of string lights without the mess of electric cables or stress of increased energy costs.  LEDs typically stay illuminated between 8 and 12 hours, depending on lighting conditions. A built-in photo cell measures the amount of available sunlight. If it senses there is not much sunlight left, the string lights will automatically turn on. When ample light is detected, the string lights will automatically turn off.

The Fast, Safe and Easy Way to Feed Portable Generator Power to a Load Center

December 2, 2011 Leave a comment

Reliance Controls ProTran 30216A 6-Circuit Indoor Transfer Switch
The Pro/Tran 30216A indoor surface mount transfer switch is designed for fast installation in residential and commercial applications. The 18-inch flexible conduit whip attaches easily to the load center and all wires are clearly marked. Simply select the circuits needed in an emergency and connect them to the Pro/Tran wire leads.

Pro/Tran transfer switches feature a rugged powder-coated steel cabinet with six combination 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch knockouts, resettable branch rated circuit breakers and non-defeatable (break-before-make) double-throw switches.

Six Solid Reasons Why Pro/Tran is the Only Logical Choice

  • Low Cost: Surprisingly low. A fraction of the cost of a DPDT switch, sub-panel, power inlet, fittings, conduit, circuit breakers and wire. Pro/Tran transfer switches combine all these elements in a single, compact, ready-to-install unit.
  • Fast Installation: Extremely fast. That’s because every Pro/Tran transfer switch is completely pre-wired. Simply attach the conduit, mount the cabinet, make the necessary connections in the load center and it’s ready to use.
  • Safe operation: Ultimately safe. The double-throw, break-before-make switch action of each Pro/Tran circuit keeps the generator isolated from the utility at all times. This eliminates the danger of back feeding the utility and causing injury to repair crews as well as preventing utility power from feeding into the generator and causing damage or injury.
  • Easy to Use: Remarkably easy. Plug the generator cord into the Pro/Tran, or the optional power inlet box, start the generator and move the switches on the Pro/Tran from LINE to GEN. Now you have power to your critical circuits.
  • High Flexibility: Unusually high. Every indoor Pro/Tran model can be cord-connected or hardwired. All enclosures include six combination 1/2-inch and 3/4-inch knockouts and a wiring compartment with over 60 cubic inches of space. Models that include a power inlet on the front also include a cover for the power inlet opening that facilitates hardwiring. Models without a power inlet on the front include a covered opening that permits the installation of a power inlet for convenient cord connection. And by ordering the optional Flush Kit, every indoor surface mount unit can be easily flush mounted.
  • Exceptional Quality: Quite exceptional. Every Pro/Tran component is manufactured to exacting specifications and tested before assembly. Then each completed Pro/Tran is thoroughly tested before shipment from the factory. And this exceptional level of quality is backed by an exclusive two-year warranty.

Hobbes Innovation 256713D SMARTtone and SMARTprobe Network Installation Kit
The Hobbes Innovation SMARTone & SMARTprobe kit is a revolutionary network installation and trouble shooting tool, it goes entirely above and beyond the traditional methods to trace and identify cables. In the past, when using tone and probe tool you had to listen quite closely to identify the tone signals; it was easy to confuse the signal with surrounding noise making it difficult to be certain of the results.

The SMARTone & SMARTprobe uses advanced digital signal technology to trace and identify cables in high speed and high precision; avoiding noise and false signals.

It is a true breakthrough beyond traditional testing methods. The SMARTone and SMARTprobe kit is compatible with traditional analog tone generators. Finally, it is not only a digital Tone and Probe but also a cable tester; it can test cable continuity, telephone service/polarity, and even wire mapping.

Features:

  • Traces cables at a distance
  • Identifies cables in bundles or at patch panels
  • Sends digital/analog tones in two distinct modes: one note tone and two note tones
  • Receiving tone sensitivity level: 9 levels
  • LED Bar and speaker are used as indicators
  • Can use probe to trace traditional 1KHz analog tone
  • Cable map: pin to pin test for cable opened/shorted/reversed/ crossed/miss-wired
  • Telephone service and polarity test: +polarity; -polarity; ringing
  • Probe has an adjustable speaker volume level suitable for various work environments
  • Auto Power off and low battery indicator
  • Complied with IEEE802.3af standard
