We had another successful stand at the ECANZ Electrical Trade Show in Christchurch on July 29th. A highlight was the prize draw in which Rick Rawlings of Link Systems (2001) Ltd won a Sonel MPI-520 electrical installation tester (you can view the brochure from our Sonel page and contact us for more information on our Contact Us page). Rick said that he was extremely pleased as it will be particularly useful in testing his installations of alternative power equipment.

This week we have had Anthony Mayo (Regional Sales Manager) over from ERICO to impart his expertise on their lightning protection, surge protection, earthing, bonding, flexible braids etc. Included has been presentations to electrical consultants and Cadweld demonstrations. This has been an excellent opportunity for engineers to try their hand at the practical side of performing a Cadweld connection. We are planning more next month in Wellington and Christchurch, so if you would like to take up this opportunity for expert advice please contact Richard Walker in the Wellington office (email and phone are on our Contact Us page).

15-16 May 2014

This year Enertec again had a trade stand at the popular RFUANZ conference held at Te Papa.

Due to their exposure and remote locations, telecommunications sites are at higher than average risk to lightning damage so particular attention should be paid to good earthing, bonding, surge protection and direct strike practices.

Here Richard awaits the next visitor during a brief lull.

Enertec Power Solutions Ltd took part in ECANZ Electrical Trade Show in Christchurch on 18 July 2013.

As every year we displayed ERITECH lightning, surge and transient protection, and earthing/grounding products as well as uninterruptible power supplies. The new exhibits on our stand this year were SONEL test and measurement instruments and CapTech power factor correction solutions.

We have had a lot of interest from the trade show visitors and exhibitors in our new product ranges. The thermal imaging camera and power quality analyser from SONEL were creating a lot of attention. Also, John Piovesan from CapTech was very busy with enquiries about the power factor correction system and capacitors that CapTech supplies.

It was also a great opportunity to catch up with friends from within the industry and exchange the latest news.

If you missed us this year, we will be exhibiting at the ECANZ Electrical Trade Show next year, so we hope to see you there.

Two Waikato men were struck by lightning following severe thunderstorms across the region yesterday.

The men, aged 26 and 23, were struck in two separate incidents, but both survived.

Weather Watch tracked 1214 lightning strikes over the upper North Island to 8pm last night, of which 500 occured in and around Hamilton.

Damon Waters, 26, was on his sister's horse stud in Cambridge when he was hit by forked lightning about 3pm. Mr Waters said he felt a bolt run through his body before he was paralysed. "It was just a blur, then I hit the ground."

He started convulsing and heard screems from his sister and her friend who were nearby.

A short while later, he got back on his feet and hobbled back to the house before he was driven to Waikato Hospital.

He said he suffered a "freaky" looking burn on his left shoulder, and felt tight and stiff in his legs.

Mr Waters said a horse on the opposite side of the paddock was struck at the same time as him and died.

There were no details on the 23-yesr-old man but it is known he also survived a strike.
