For electric cars, a new home charging station

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Leviton, a global manufacturer of electrical devices, unveiled the latest entry to its Evr-Green line of residential, commercial and public electric vehicle charging systems – the Evr-Green 320 Level 2 Home Charging Station. 

The new device provides up to 32 amps at 240 volts AC (7.7 kW output) – reducing the charge time of any SAE J1772 compatible electric vehicle by seven percent when compared to leading competitors. The charging station has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the next generation electric vehicles with larger on-board chargers, enabling consumers to “future-proof” their charging needs.

Designed and assembled in the United States, the Evr-Green 320 Level 2 Home Charging Station includes a three-year limited warranty, and as with the entire Evr-Green line, complies with all industry safety and performance standards, including the current National Electrical Code. 

The device’s weatherproof NEMA Type 4 steel enclosure installs in a cord connected installation when used with a Pre-Wire Installation Kit or can be converted to a hard-wired installation if required. The charging station is also available with either an 18- or 25-foot charging cable which provides more flexibility for mounting locations.

Awesome, now here's a product
Awesome, now here's a product for a product that nobody seems to want or be able to afford. Unless they plan on marketing exclusively to the federal government or retailers in California, I'm thinking the charger is not exactly going to be a "best seller." Until the automobile manufacturers can come up with affordable battery powered vehicles (and I drive a truck so I'm not just talking about "Volt" size vehicles)this is a non starter. Oh, and since a large portion of the electricity in this country is produced from coal fired plants, which this administration plans to make impossible to operate, the cost of electricity will be rising. How's that hopey changey thing workin for ya?

Hardware Show puts spotlight on innovation

BY HBSDEALER Staff

In the tradition of encouraging innovation, The National Hardware Show will give credit where credit is due through a series of awards ceremonies recognizing the best of the best in product design and innovation.

"New products are a vital part of keeping the industry moving forward and they are also a vital part of the offering at the National Hardware Show," says Sonya Ruff Jarvis, vice president of attendee programs for the National Hardware Show, which will be held May 1-3 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. "While it’s always nice to see the industry’s innovators get recognized for their hard work with awards, these kinds of award programs are also a vitally important part of the industry’s channel partners communicating with one another."

New in 2012 will be The Pitch Tank, part of the new Innovation Station area, dedicated to showcasing new home improvement products, ideas and inventions. The Pitch Tank was created to allow everyday entrepreneurs and inventors a chance to give their "pitches," or presentations, to a seasoned team of product development executives and marketers, led by well-known entrepreneur Kevin Harrington, who also appears as one of the "sharks" on TV’s popular "Shark Tank." Select products from the Pitch Tank will be recognized during a special presentation on the NRHA Village Stage.

Other product-related awards programs scheduled to take place at the 2012 National Hardware Show include:

• The NRHA Packaging & Merchandising Awards. This award program, conducted by the North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA), recognizes the industry’s finest product packaging and merchandising.

Building materials help boost U.S. exports

BY HBSDEALER Staff

U.S. containerized exports rose 9.6% in February in year-over-year figures, with the total February volume estimated at 1,014,176 TEUs Strong gains in building materials, paper and paperboard, and refrigerated foods were helped by the depreciation of the U.S. dollar, according to an analysis by The Journal of Commerce/PIERS.

In terms of TEUs, paper and paperboard showed the greatest gains, but building materials grew by 280%  over January 2012.  

"The foreign exchange value of the U.S. dollar against a broad basket of currencies was down on January 31 by 2% over the value of Dec. 30, 2011," said Mario Moreno, economist for The Journal of Commerce/PIERS. "Manufacturing activity in China has been in contraction for four consecutive months, yet U.S. exports of key raw materials such as paper and paperboard and raw cotton increased sharply, suggesting factory output will rebound soon."

Northeast Asia held its position as the top destination for U.S. containerized exports, growing 12% year-over-year, accounting for 45.3% of total export volume. Exports to the Caribbean climbed 49% and shipments to North Europe rebounded at 19%. Mediterranean volumes, however, fell 18%.
