Part of the CADWELD® PLUS system from ERICO, the electronic control unit is a small, hand-held, battery-powered ignition tool that helps simplify the welded connection process. The CADWELD PLUS system eliminates the need for starting material and flint igniters by utilizing an electronic ignition. Two field-replaceable leads in lengths of 6 ft (1.8 m) or 15 ft (4.6 m) offer increased flexibility and versatility in hard-to-reach areas. This CE/UL® Recognized battery-powered ignition system is designed for 600 connections with one set of eight standard AA batteries (included) and requires no special batteries or chargers.

The CADWELD PLUS control unit initiates the reaction of the CADWELD PLUS welding material cup. The standard unit includes a 6 ft (1.8 m) high temperature control unit lead. The lead attaches to the ignition strip on the welding material cup using a custom, purpose-designed termination clip. After the termination clip is installed on the ignition strip, the installer pushes and holds the ignition button to start a charging and discharging sequence. Within a few seconds, the control unit sends a predetermined voltage to the ignition strip and the reaction is initiated. As the “ready” light is flashing during the first few seconds, the installer can release the button to prevent the ignition.

The Spy Pig Tracker is an electronic pig locating system that will locate your pigs wherever they go - through gathering lines, mainline transmission lines, municipal gas, water and waste water lines, refinery and other industrial piping.

Using strong low frequency signals the Pig Tracker system gives you a more reliable signal life. Depending on the model, the Pig Trackers signal can be received for up to 500 hours. It operates on standard batteries - readily available from retail stores. No recharger is necessary.

The Pig Tracker system consists of a cylindrical transmitter which travels with the pig, and a hand-held pick up wand and receiver that receive the signals and inform the operator of the transmitter / pigs location.
