Narrow-beam spotlight bulb
LED High-Power PAR30: This general-purpose bulb is made up of five 3Watt, high-power LEDs and replaces filament-based PAR30 bulbs, combining advanced LED technologies, standard ac voltages, 26mm Edison screw-in base, and light-optimizing design, producing 367 lumens or 2,938cd total end foot candles. The 15-degree narrow-beam PAR30A LED bulb runs on a voltage range of 85V to 260V ac current. Other voltages like 12Vac or dc are optionally available. The Ledtronics PAR30A-style lamp is a direct screw-in replacement for up to 75W PAR30 incandescent or halogen bulbs, but has a maximum power draw of only 9.5W.
Truck Bed U-Lock: Master Lock's Truck Bed U-Lock locking system safely secures virtually anything you can carry in a pick-up truck’s cargo area. The Truck Bed U-Lock is designed to deter grab-and-go theft of valuable items as well as constant shifting of objects being hauled. Anchored by a weather proof lock and cable system, the U-Lock is a semi-permanent device whose locking body swivels 190 degrees and it fits into most pick-up truck bed stack hole pockets without any drilling. It is constructed of a hardened steel shackle with a lock body, has a key cover to protect it from the elements and uses Mast Lock’s patented Python-style cylinder which allows the cylinder to be changed to make keyed alike sets for use with multiple Truck Bed U-Locks.
Embedded USB to serial adapter
Sealink/PC.SC, Sealink+2/PC.SC: Sealink/PC.SC (one-port) and Sealink+2/PC.SC (two-port) embedded USB-to-serial adapter with a PC bracket can be used for adding serial ports to any PC using the computer's internal USB connection. The serial ports are software configurable for RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485, which eliminates the need for an external converter and provides a clean, professional installation. All configuration and electrical interface selections are handled through the driver software, so it is not necessary to shut down the computer or open the system enclosure to set jumpers or dipswitches. Additionally, the devices maintain their electrical interface settings in hardware, allowing the host computer to be repaired or upgraded without reconfiguring the serial ports.
FM modulation and AF spectrum analyzer
Microgen TS9080: The TS9080 FM modulation and AF spectrum analyzer has been designed for precision monitoring of FM radio broadcasts. Connected to a standard Windows PC via a USB port, its user-friendly interface displays all modulation data on screen for analysis. The enclosure is a custom-designed dual-chamber aluminum extrusion. Audio outputs are provided for headphone or loudspeaker monitoring, with full RBDS decoding available and live off-air data recording. Broadcast data is automatically logged with the included Ilog software. Remote control is possible with simple text file commands allowing the unit to be controlled from third party software applications. Unique to this class of product is a FFT spectrum analyzer.
PC backup device
Clickfree Traveler: As light as a pen and the size of a credit card, the flash-based Traveler slips easily into a wallet, allowing business travelers, photographers, music lovers and others to carry up to 64GBs of data in their hip pocket or purse. Despite its small size, the Traveler includes an auto-launch feature, so there is no need to install or configure software. Just insert the Traveler's USB plug into a PC, and Clickfree does the rest, searching, copying and organizing more than 400 file types of digital data including documents (Word, Excel, Power Point), Outlook e-mail and contacts, photos, video, music, and even favorite websites.
