MELTRIC’s Switch-Rated DS200 plug and receptacle has been upgraded to include horsepower (hp) ratings from 40-100, depending upon voltage.
The enhanced product also boasts a rating increase to 600VAC and a new 6-pilot configuration. The upgrades make the DS200 480 and 600VAC
100 hp configurations the most powerful switch-rated device in the industry.
The DS200 with hp and motor circuit switch ratings is now an NEC-compliant motor disconnect. The new ratings fill the gap between 75-100 hp where the NEC requires a specific hp-rated disconnect.
DS200 Switch-Rated plugs and receptacles feature MELTRIC’s spring-loaded, silver-nickel, butt-style contacts. The devices are built to withstand corrosive environments, while delivering exceptional performance and reliability. Receptacles include standard lockout holes for easy NFPA 70E lockout/ tagout compliance.

Improved Power modules and integration of ADMO light
The newest version of Test Universe 4.20, OMICRON’s solution for advanced settings-based protection testing, offers improved ease of use of the Power modules and the ribbon menu. Further customer requirements have been implemented and, with the integration of ADMO light, users can use the full functionality of ADMO in managing up to 50 assets.
Working with ramps in the Advanced Power module
The Advanced Power module’s input options for entering criteria for automatic ramp assessment have been extended and simplified. Additionally, the power view now displays the trip during ramping. The ribbon in all Distance and Power modules dynamically displays additional commands, providing a closer link between the different areas of the modules and improving usability.
Permanent ADMO light license
The “light” version provides the full ADMO standalone functionality, but for a limited number of assets. The intelligent data management software allows for central planning and management of all engineering, testing and maintenance activities. In addition to the 50 assets, the permanent license also covers the management of an unlimited number of test sets.
Available from July 2020.
17 March 2022 Lakewood Ranch, Florida – IRISS, the world leader in electrical maintenance safety devices and reliability technologies, has purchased the UK-based company, Safe-Connect. The announcement comes just six months after the two companies started a strategic distribution partnership.
Safe-Connect’s award-winning products join the IRISS ecosystem of reliability products and technologies to increase asset monitoring and inspection capabilities further. The thermochromic components in these products cause a color change based on temperature ranges, providing 24/7 safety monitoring to give a predictive warning on overheated equipment. In addition, the permanent quality of the change highlights possible issues in straight and non-continuous load applications, protecting against electrical fire or equipment failure.
IRISS will keep the name “Safe-Connect” for the product line, including ThermoClips, ThermoWraps, ThermoSpots, and ThermoSpot-Bs. These products complement the patented polymer-based IR windows as a visual indicator between IR inspections, mitigating the risk of costly operational interruptions. Thememory-effect technology records overtemperature issues in low/medium/high/varying voltage equipment.
“We are excited to add the Safe-Connect range of products to our current electrical maintenance safety devices. The patented color-lock technology used in safe-connect products adds a unique dimension of protection to electrical asset management, giving both a visual and historical reference to cables and
switches that are currently in an over-temperature condition or may have gone over-temperature between inspections. We are also pleased that the management team from Safe-Connect UK have joined the IRISS family to aid a smooth transition of the existing products and assist in developing new product solutions to add to our EMSD product offerings”, said IRISS Founder/CEO Martin Robinson.
For companies that want to protect their workers and assets, this announcement brings access to cost-effective strategies and operational solutions to safeguard operations and workers.

LED lighting manufacturer Evluma announces the launch of a new roadway lighting product RoadMaxTM. The RoadMax series will include three sizes: small, medium and large and a range of wattages designed to replace legacy HID 100w, 250w and 400w cobraheads. The first model in the series, the RoadMax RX1, with wattages ranging from 30W-70W and an estimated output range of 3,000 to 9,000 lumens, is estimated to start shipping at the end of April 2022.
This sleek and stylish luminaire was designed with RP-8-18 roadway requirements in mind. The unique optical design offers a combination of roadway performance and glare control unprecedented in the industry. “RoadMax is an advancement of Evluma’s reputation for low-glare, visually-pleasing outdoor lighting,” says Taisha Bezzo, National Sales Director. “RoadMax addresses contemporary concerns regarding disability glare and light trespass from roadway lighting while maintaining exceptional pole spacing.”
Multiple luminaire configurations for Type II, Type III and Type V, all with zero-uplight (U0), are offered. Additional features such as a field adjustable wattage selector (FAO), light trespass shields and a choice of photocontrol sockets are available. RoadMax can be customized to include Evluma’s Photocontrol FailsafeTM, a patented technology that solves photocontrol failures on street and area lights. Compatibility with ConnectLEDTM, Evluma’s Bluetooth app for wireless lighting controls, enables dimming and dimming schedules without the need for a network. Evluma’s comprehensive 10-year warranty and signature 20kV/10kA surge protection comes standard with every model.
Evluma will be showing the RoadMax at Lightfair 2022, Booth #2546.
