New Products From Wet Circuits, Arecont Vision, Apple
Water-resistant power strip, AV10015 10 megapixel camera, all-in-one iMac.
The water-resistant design and protective materials of the Wet Circuits power strip allow for continued indoor/outdoor use and protection against rain, snow or an accidental coffee spill. The unit’s smart fuse and circuit breaker sense excess overheating (231-249 degrees Fahrenheit) and discontinue any electric charge to prevent fires. Sticking foreign objects in the outlet won’t cause electric shock, thanks to the “Touch Protection” feature. Electric power is only conducted when a proper plug is completely inserted into the outlet. www.wetcircuits.com
On the Scene
The Arecont Vision AV10015 10 megapixel camera is one-third the size and half the weight of the company’s previous model. The camera provides 3,648x2,752-pixel (10 megapixel) images at 7 frames per second (fps) and 1,920x1,080-pixel (1080p) at 30 fps. The units are powered via power over Ethernet to eliminate the need for localized power supplies. The binning mode in the day/night version of the camera offers increased sensitivity and better low-light performance. www.arecontvision.com
