EasyHeat Sno*Melter Cable Kits, when embedded in concrete and under pavers in outdoor applications, are designed to prevent snow and ice buildup on the surface. They consist of a dual conductor heating cable that is connected to a power lead. The kit also includes 3″ long twist ties that are used for attaching heating cables to the welded wire mesh or rebar. EasyHeat Sno*Melter Cable Kits are available in sizes that cover from 10 square feet to 100 square feet with a single cable, and can be configured to fit walk, stair, entryway, and driveway shapes. Multiple cable kits can be combined to cover more substantial areas. Once the kit is selected, the contractor attaches the Sno*Melter cable to welded wire mesh or rebar with the included twist ties, hard wires the single end cold lead to a standard 208V or 240V power source, and finishes pouring or laying the surface material. The installation is completed by including an EasyHeat self-contained controller (sold separately) that begins the heating process whenever moisture is present and the temperature drops below 38°F. The dual element, fixed resistance cables are UL Listed, CSA certified, and pre-sized to fit square footage and layout requirements. Cable lengths are available up to 400′. Standard cold lead length is 20′.

Fully Automatic AED Plus® by ZOLL Medical Corporationfully automatic aed plus by zoll
The Fully Automatic AED Plus is a fully automatic automated external defibrillator (AED) with Real CPR Help®. This proprietary feedback technology can assist rescuers in providing manual CPR with real-time audible and visual feedback to help them achieve the proper depth and rate of CPR chest compressions. The unit provides all the same Full-Rescue features and benefits as the semiautomatic version of the AED Plus except that when the Fully Automatic AED Plus detects a shockable heart rhythm, it delivers the shock on its own, with no rescuer intervention required. No one needs to push a button. Once it prompts, “Don’t touch the patient,” and the heart analysis begins, if a shock is needed it will be delivered automatically after a brief verbal countdown.
