Cooper Wiring Devices USB Charger Awarded Platinum Honors in EC&M's Product of the Year Competition

Cooper Wiring Devices, a leading electrical wiring device manufacturer for industrial, commercial and residential applications, has been honored with a Platinum Product of the Year award from Electrical Construction & Maintenance (EC&M) magazine. Its Combination USB Charger with Tamper Resistant Receptacle topped a list of more than 125 products to take home top honors.

The competition's 31 category winners were selected from a pool of more than 125 nominees. The final decision was made by an expert panel of ten judges representing electrical professionals from the engineering, contracting and plant facilities, and maintenance industries. Category winners were then featured on the EC&M website where readers voted to determine which products earned Platinum, Gold or Silver distinction in this year's awards.

Developed in response to the surge of consumer portable electronic devices that charge by means of a USB connection, Cooper Wiring Devices' Combination USB Charger with Tamper Resistant Receptacle is ideal for residential, commercial, educational, municipal and hospitality applications. The device provides a permanent and energy-efficient charging alternative to bulky adapters and computers. Compliant with the 2011 NEC®, the Receptacle's tamper resistant safety shutters also prevent the insertion of foreign objects.

"We are excited that the Combination USB Charger with Tamper Resistant Receptacle has been honored with a Platinum Product of the Year award in EC&M's 2012 competition," said Laura Ulz, President Cooper Wiring Devices. "Receiving this honor is further validation that our company remains committed to the continued development of innovative products."

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…
