The 32nd Middle East Electricity Exhibition, which will run till February 14, is the biggest ever staged featuring over 850 regional and international exhibitors from more than 52 countries.

Some of the exhibiting companies are providing DEWA, SEWA and ADEWA and other governmental departments with various equipment such as cables, wires, lighting systems, hardware items used for transmission lines and conductors. The exhibition features the thermal imaging by infra-red cameras. Through this imaging device which reads the surface temperature a predictive maintenance can be applied to detect any faults in substations, power plants, switchers and wherever there are electrical connections. This predictive device can prevent any black out. It can also prove popular on buildings to check if the cold emitted by the air-conditioner Is kept inside. This can help keep heavy utility bills away.

Also on display were the solar panels to gain electricity out of the sunlight with no pollution. If this system is used in the grid connected areas it can reduce carbon dioxide pollution because it is an emission free electrical generator and environment friendly.

The solar system can be helpful as well in bringing electricity into rural areas to run telecommunication and any kind of connection without any grid.

Those panels can also be used in farms for water pumping.

Some companies are exhibiting their optical fibre equipment and fittings which may be wrapped around the cable to prevent any loss of electricity.

A device also on display is the spacer damper, an anti vibration device which prevents power failure in addition to transmission lines hardware and accessories, lighting armature, wall lamps, cable supports, TM series actuator, generators and devices based on Power Line Communication Technology.
