Withstand Ratings and Lake Shore Electric Automatic Transfer Switches

Lake Shore Electric ATS

Interrupting ratings are the highest current at rated voltage that a device is intended to interrupt under standard test conditions. Withstand ratings are the highest current at rated voltage that a device is intended to carry under standard test conditions. When applied to automatic transfer switches, these ratings become the highest rated current that the transfer … Read more

PAL-AT provides precise leak detection for below-ground pipe systems

Perma-Pipe PAL-AT is a state of the art leak detection cable system that locates potential problems anywhere along a sensor string. The PAL-AT is often provided for secondary contained fuel-oil pipe systems, or any other application where quick and precise leak detection is required. Sensing cables are available to sense the presence of water-based and hydrocarbon-based liquids, or hydrocarbon-sensing only. PAL-AT sensing cables can be air-dried and re-used, are suitable for monitoring for the presence of corrosive chemicals.
