Ecopower The ecopower microCHP system produces heat while simultaneously creating electricity. Essentially it is an onsite power plant. While producing 13,000 to 47,000 BTUs per hour to heat water for space heating or domestic hot water, it also creates 1.2 to 4.4 kW of electricity. The electricity created is used onsite, reducing utility bills and reliance on the grid.Made in the US, the Marathon Engine is the prime energy source for ecopower. Clean-burning natural gas or propane contributes to long life (40,000+ hours) and thermal efficiency. www.ecopowermicrochp.com Russelectric Russelectric’s redesigned Medium-Voltage (5-15 kV) Circuit Breaker-Type AutomaticTransfer Switches and Bypass/Isolation Switches now have 20 to 50% smaller footprints than before. UL tested, listed, and labeled under UL 1008A, and suitable for use in legally required alternate power systems, these switches transfer electrical loads between preferred and alternate power sources through the carefully controlled opening and closing of circuit breakers. Switches can be configured for open- or closed-transition transfer, and though designed for unattended operation; they include controls for manually initiated operation. All switch functions are controlled by Russelectric’s powerful and versatile RPTCS programmable microprocessor-based control system. www.russelectric.com Elliott Group Elliott Group has been designing, manufacturing, and servicing steam turbines for more than a century.

Insulation can be added to meet energy codes when required. www.legacybuildingsolutions.com WATTSTOPPER WattStopper Wireless Receptacle Controls (WRC) elegantly extend occupancy-based lighting control to plug loads, helping specifiers and installers meet new ASHRAE 90.1 and Title 24 requirements to switch off selected receptacles. This simple, yet robust solution works with existing line voltage wiring, minimizing labor and material costs for retrofits or new construction. Wireless Receptacle Control transmitters are available to work with all WattStopper occupancy sensors, including Digital Lighting Management (DLM) sensors. The transmitters send occupancy status to 15- or 20-amp controlled receptacles available, and with one or two switched outlets. Controlled receptacles feature NEMA-approved labeling, and have feed-through capability for downstream control of additional outlets. www.wattstopper.com/products/plug-load-controls.aspx ESL POWER SYSTEMS INC. ESL’s 3-Way Manual Transfer Switch (TripleSwitch) provides a quick, safe method to lower load bank testing costs for a permanent generator or ATS system, and incorporates an integrated quick-connect solution for redundant (portable generator) power during permanent generator maintenance or during a power outage. This unique ESL design provides “no make or break under load” by incorporating three interlocked breakers and quick disconnects into a single piece of equipment, and it’s UL 1008 listed. www.manualtransferswitch.com ASCO POWER SWITCHING AND CONTROLS–EMERSON NETWORK POWER The Avtron LPH150 portable load bank is the new standard for multiple capacity load testing. Packaged in a rugged but compact enclosure, the LPH150 provides the largest kilowatt-loading profile available in the small portable load bank market. The LPH150 is rated for continuous operation and no cool down period is required after use. This flexible load bank can load a full 150 kW at both 240 and 480 VAC, 3 Phase, 60 Hz. The biggest advantage of the LPH150 is that it can load up to 115 kW at 208 VAC, 3 Phase, 60 Hz.
