FLIR Systems recently announced the availability of the Extech DV690, its first non-contact high voltage detector with a detection range of up to 69,000 volts (69 kV). The industrial-grade DV690 provides early warning alerts of energized electrical components for utility lineworkers, telecommunications installers, first responders, search and rescue teams, and tree removal services.

The DV690 features five flexible mounting options: handheld, around the neck, clipped to a belt, strapped to an arm, or attached to a universal spline hot stick. The three handsfree possibilities allow the most optimal operation to efficiently and carefully complete a job. Using a hot stick creates a safer distance to target, extending operator reach. The DV690 also features a bright LED alarm and 106 decibels (dB) buzzer to notify users of the presence of dangerous voltage adding another layer of protection in hazardous conditions. 

Built with a durable IP54 housing, protected from dust intrusion and water spray, and drop tested to 4 ft (1.2 m), the DV690 performs reliably in harsh environments. Additionally, the built-in safety test function assures operators the unit is in proper working condition for rapid deployment. 

Offered with a 2-year warranty, the Extech DV690 is available globally today for $299.99 through Extech.com and authorized dealers. The complete DV690 kit includes a hard-carrying case, safety break-away lanyard, arm strap, water resistant soft pouch, universal hot stick adapter, and 3x AA batteries.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
