Canadian Electrical Industry News Week

Rittal Systems Canada, the world’s largest and most trusted manufacturer of enclosures, climate control systems, power distribution and software solutions, was delighted to receive one of Electro-Federation Canada’s Marketing Awards in the under $50 million category, for the second year in a row.

An experienced and impartial panel of industry judges declared Rittal the winner of the Best Event & Trade Show Display Award, sponsored by Electrical Line, for the magnificent mobile Rittal Expo Vehicle (REV) which is the ideal mobile trade show vehicle to bring Rittal’s range of solutions to partners’ and customers’ doorsteps. The REV is a mobile showroom of Rittal innovations: enclosures, climate control, power distribution, software and systems, and IT infrastructure, so people everywhere can discover the fascinating world of Rittal at their doorsteps!

The magnificent Rittal Expo Vehicle was a brain-child of Rittal Canada. Prior to the REV Truck, Rittal was challenged with showcasing its market-leading solutions at various locations across Canada, due to the difficulty in transporting this heavy equipment, and aesthetically displaying it at industry events.

researched, analysed the market, and over several months, developed the concept for the REV which would become a mobile showcase of the latest and greatest 

solutions that Rittal had to offer.

Says Tim Rourke, President, Rittal Systems Ltd., “It’s been said that seeing is believing. But in this case, a Rittal Expo Vehicle (REV) is so much more. The REV is a mobile showroom home to an eye-opening spectrum of Rittal products for our audience to explore. It’s an opportunity to experience Rittal quality and innovation 

firsthand by opening, closing, and examining what Rittal has to offer. From enclosures to the latest in climate control, power distribution, software and systems, and IT infrastructure, our customers can discover that there’s more than rittal1.jpgmeets the eye when it comes to Rittal.”

A REV visit is an event not to be missed. There is a site where the audience can book their personal Rittal REV visit, and be prepared for the ride of their life: www.rittalREV.com

Cloud

There has been a lot of talk about cloud computing and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) models these days but both are relatively new to the lighting industry. Let’s take a look at what they are as well as their roles in commercial lighting.

What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of compute power, database storage, and applications via the Internet with pay-as-you-go or subscription-based pricing. Cloud computing means that instead of all the computer hardware, software, and data that you are using sitting somewhere inside your company’s network, it’s provided and managed for you as a service by another company and you access it over the Internet.

Lumens

This article is an excerpt from a technical brief, “Understanding LM-80, Lumen Maintenance, and LED Fixture Lifetime,” by Philips Color Kinetics.

Test results of lumen maintenance in conventional and LED light sources differ considerably. This is known as the lumen maintenance gap. These tests are performed to determine the useful life of a light source. But how do we compare lighting technologies satisfactorily if test results of a same designation do not mean the same thing? These lumen maintenance measurement distinctions are those we will examine in this article, as a clear understanding of this gap will have a significant impact on the installation, maintenance and replacement cost calculations of lighting products.

Not only does he know the electrical industry down to the most minute product and technological innovations, he is also a professional car racer on sabbatical, and someone very involved in his business community and personal life.
