GE Industrial, Sensing, offers GearTrak™, a wireless equipment health monitoring system. The stand-alone package is designed to simplify the task of monitoring temperature and other measurement parameters. Typical applications include monitoring pump temperatures and water level or flow. The system consists of three components: a wireless sensor module that sends measurement data over the 300MHz ISM radio frequency band to a repeater; a repeater that relays the sensor data to the base station using the 900MHz ISM frequency; and software that enables the user to view, trend, and alarm the measurements for proactive control.

Schonstedt recently announced a new entry in its line of underground utility locators, the XTpc. The lightweight, portable locator has a pistol-gripped receiver that weighs 2.5 pounds and is “holsterable” - it’s easy to carry on the provided tool belt but extends to a full 26” when in use. The transmitter is about the size of a large candy bar and can be carried in a shirt pocket. Receiver batteries last as long as 18 hours when used intermittently and the rechargeable (NiMH) transmitter operates for eight continuous hours on one charge.

The Enviropod™ catch basin insert is a low-cost stormwater treatment solution. It removes a significant portion of trash, debris and other pollutants from water entering the storm drain, and is installed in catch basins and curb inlets. Using passive screening, the system can be customized to meet site-specific requirements with several available mesh screens and oil-absorbent media. It is effective as a pretreatment device for use in conjunction with other stormwater treatment systems such as hydrodynamic devices, filtration systems, ponds, swales and wetlands.
