Greening your building – a competitive imperative
last month’s Green Real Estate forum in Toronto, it quickly became
clear that green buildings are no longer a niche market. Greening your
building is becoming a strategic imperative – to keep tenants and/or
employees happy and in your facilities. The question now is only, at
what sort of pace will that strategic change occur? How soon will it
affect your ability to keep the businesses and employees you need to

Absopulse's HBL 1K Series
Absopulse Electronics' HBL 1K Series is a heavy-duty power supply
designed for industrial and other harsh-environments. This AC/DC unit
utilizes field-proven full-bridge topology to deliver up to 1000W
output power from a compact 210 x 66 x 351 mm chassis. This unit
provides standard outputs of 24V, 28V, 48V, or 56V and accepts inputs
of 115 or 230Vac, with voltage selection by internal jumper. It also
accepts 250Vdc (190 to 370Vdc range).
The HBL 1K is ruggedly constructed, with additional
ruggedizing and conformal coating available for operation in extreme
environments. It is conduction cooled via a base-plate, with cooling
also provided by natural air convection. The unit is filtered to meet
EN55022 Class A as a minimum and is designed to meet EN 60950 and
related standards. Featuring full electronic protection and low output
noise, this chassis-mount design is optimized for low component count
and high efficiency.
||WAGO's New 3-Phase Power Measurement Module
WAGO Corporation's new, 750-493 3-Phase Power Measurement Module
integrates comprehensive monitoring of a power supply network with the
connectivity of an I/O system. At just 12 mm wide, the high-density,
6-channel 750-493 represents a cost- and space-effective solution to
power system supply management.
While most competitive power measurement modules are
stand-alone units relying on proprietary connectivity to external
devices, the 750-493 is a component of a remote I/O or distributed
control system. Thus, it is compatible with 16 different fieldbus
networks (including Ethernet, Profibus, Modbus, and DeviceNet) and the
300+ digital, analog, and special function modules found in the
WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM, making it flexible and efficient to analyze and
distribute power supply data. When one or more 750-493 modules are
connected to a WAGO controller, the solution can be programmed with
WAGO-I/O-PRO CAA for data logging, time stamping and historical
