Axis Q6155-E PTZ Dome Network Camera
Axis Communications launched a range of cameras last month that offer “faster and more accurate autofocus even in the most challenging lighting conditions”. The AXIS Q6155-E PTZ Dome Network Camera features laser focus technology and provides high-quality images, and the company says the collection is “valuable in situations when people or objects need to be identified quickly and precisely”. The camera features HDTV 1080p resolution and Sharpdome, a technology that allows monitoring of objects up to 20° above the horizon. www.axis.com
Florence Water Heaters
The new glass-lined and enamel-coated Florence water heaters guarantee a heating cycle of around two hours and 18 minutes, making hot water available for approximately three hours. Its dry block heater and magnesium rod is 27% larger than that used for any other water heaters in the market, guaranteeing a longer life span for the tank and heater. These factors ensure the rate of pressure is doubled – with minimal energy consumption. The inner tank comprises three layers, including an aircraft-grade special manganese alloy steel with less than 0.12% carbon content. An ultra-fine enamel powder gives the heater a finer and smoother porcelain finish. www.aldanube.com
Triple H LED
Hubbell Industrial Lighting launched the Triple H LED highbay/lowbay in October. The new LED is a high-ambient, high-output, and high-efficacy fixture capable of 148 lumens per watt and a scalable light output of 15,000 to 60,000 lumens. The Triple H LED highbay/lowbay is built to operate in temperatures up to 65°C, and the fixture does not fold back output at extreme temperatures – a common occurrence in industrial facilities. Hubbell Lighting studies show energy consumption can be reduced by 60% through the use of the new fixtures, whilst also mitigating the need for maintenance. www.hubbellindustrial.com
