Following on from exhibiting at recent shows, Olson Electronics has identifi ed a high demand from its customers for a particular accessory to incorporate with one of its most popular products. Olson has announced the introduction of The Retractor, which is a retracting option for its established range of suspended Power Distribution Units (PDUs). The Retractor is designed for industrial applications where a suspended, strong and compact PDU is required. This type of accessory can also be used in a wide range of different environments, such as hospitals, tyre shops, broadcasting buildings and workshops, among others. The Retractor option has been introduced to complement the strengths of the suspended PDUs. The Retractor allows the suspended unit to be lowered to the required working position, locked in place and then retracted back up when it is no longer in use. If the units are not required to retract, Olson also offers chain and standard cable, which can be cut to any length required. This has also proved a popular option for the company, particularly in the more industrial and heavy-duty environments. Turn to page 14 for full story.
