1. Solar Installation Solutions
Bridgeport’s Mighty-Seal 250-RT2XL fittings solve a
problem: Many nonmetallic combiner boxes—an integral
part of most PV installations—have a wall thickness in
excess of 3⁄ 8˝, not leaving enough threads on raintight
connectors to attach to these thicker walls. Mighty-Seal
250-RT2XL fittings provide enough threads on their
raintight connectors to attach to the thicker walls and
even have enough threads left over for a grounding bushing, if required. Learn more at bptfittings.com.
2. Drop-In Floor Box Kit
Arlington’s brass or nickel-plated metal covers are
designed for time-saving and a neat, flush installation. The
covers feature gasketed lids that seat into a low-profile,
.04˝-thick, plated steel flange that sits flush with the floor
to prevent trip hazard. Learn more at aifittings.com.
3. Lightweight Series of Tools
Burndy’s redesigned Patriot In-Line series of tools meets
the growing market need for a smaller, lighter, and more
ergonomic In-Line tool platform. The PATMD-LW series
weighs just 6. 7 lbs., is only 18. 7˝ high, is powered by Makita
lithium-ion batteries, and accepts multiple Makita battery
platforms. Learn more at burndy.com.
4. Battery-Powered Cable Tray Cutter
Legrand’s second-generation Cablocut battery-powered
cable tray cutter easily slices steel and stainless steel cable
management trays up to 6mm in diameter. Using it in place
of a manual cutting tool allows electrical contractors to
trim overhead cable management systems to specification
faster, according to the company. Learn more at legrand.us.
5. HomeKit-Enabled A19 Full-Color Light Bulb
Ledvance’s HomeKit-enabled SYLVANIA Smart+ A19 full-color light bulb can be controlled via Siri and Apple’s Home
app and doesn’t need a separate hub or smart socket or
need a WiFi router to function: Just screw the Bluetooth-enabled bulb into a lamp and sync it with the Home app on
any Apple device. Learn more at sylvania.com.
