Introduced in Las Vegas, the Heat Sheet temperature demo card vibrantly changes color when it encounters heat. The economically-priced HS2050 can be added to a sales demonstration to provide a dynamic visual presentation of a window's heat-blocking ability, the supplier explains. Used in combination with the supplier's heat lamp, heat will pass through an inefficient window or glass unit to change the color of the demo sheet. However, no color change occurs when the demo card is placed in front of an energy efficient window or glass unit. Measuring about 6 x 4 inches, the sheet can be easily added to EDTM's sales demonstration kits.
EDTM also showed its updated SP1065 Digital Solar Power Meter and SP2065 Solar Transmission and Power Meter, used in the sales kits of many window and window film organizations. The most noticeable improvement is an embossed style of power switch that creates a smooth front surface and provides a sleeker appearance. The change in power switch style is accompanied by an auto-power off circuit that will turn the meter off after a period of inactivity. This will help extend the life of the batteries. Meters can now also provide measurements in Btu/hr*ft2 or W/m2. A simple algorithm is included in the new instruments to allow the customer to choose their unit of measure. An optional new stand can is also available.
