The Importance Of EMI Suppression...

In any electronic device, it is critical to limit the electromagnetic interference (EMI) or noise within the device. This type of EMI suppression can be done through the use of EMI filters and also specific shields and actual designs of the electronic device itself. The use of EMI suppression filters will address the electromagnetic noise that is found when an electrical current passes through wiring in the circuitry of the device. Shields can be used actually to block the EMI, and usually both are found within devices to provide the best possible suppression and elimination of the problems that occur when electromagnetic noise is present. Why EMI Suppression is Essential When you think of the number of electronic devices we use in the same proximity to each other it is easy to see why suppression is essential. A cell phone that is exposed to even low levels of EMI will not be able to receive incoming calls, or will disconnect or have extremely poor reception and transmission. In the early days of the use of both computers and cell phones both these devices could interfere with each other, and other electronic systems, limiting the ability of either to receive or transmit any data. Also, EMI from other sources can impact any digital circuits on any device including switches, radio transmitters or any radio controlled devices. Types of Electromagnetic Noise Since any device running electricity through wiring will create some level of electromagnetic noise, knowing what devices need to have EMI suppression and which don’t is important. There are specific requirements on what type of circuits and systems need these EMI suppression filters built in to allow safe use of other devices. In essence, any electromagnetic noise that can cause harm and is an artificial...

Slatwall Panels – Instantly Upgrade Your Home or Retail Space...

We may not realize it, but Slatwall panels appear in our everyday lives and have been around for many years. They are often found as wall coverings and product displays in the retail industry, can make be used in a home garage to organize tools, gear, and equipment or in commercial showrooms to exhibit items. Metal panels are used for holding heavy items while designer panels can add elegance and style to a panel display. Features of Slatwall Panels They are typically made of medium density fiber board or particle board and may be either 4 feet wide by 8 feet in size or 8 feet wide by 4 feet in height. They feature horizontal grooves or slots machined into them or are fitted with plastic or aluminum inserts, which allow for quick and easy movement of slat wall display hooks and shelves, slat wall fixtures, and displays. Standard groove spacing is 3 inches on center although custom grooves can be made. You can choose from several types of finishes for your slat wall panels. One of them is paint, which can be done in a color to match the specific requirements of space. Another is a high-pressure laminate finish, which makes for an extremely durable panel, and is available in hundreds of colors. A melamine pressure laminate has the look of high priced laminate and is available in a variety of solid colors and wood grain finishes. Less expensive than a high-pressure laminate finish, it is the most cost effective of these types of panels. Another type of finish is a real wood veneer of birch, red oak or maple which may be finished with stain, lacquer or varnish. Finally, a laminated acrylic finish can be applied to give a mirror-like feel while...

Growing real estate market in Ghatkopar...

Ghatkopar has always been the unlikeliest of areas when it came to real estate and commercial growth in the past. All that looks set to change now with an increase in both rental and capital values to the tune of almost 50% in the area in recent times as per statistics. A large part of this growth has been centered on Ghatkopar West as opposed to the eastern flank of the locality. There are several options available if you wish to find an upcoming commercial project in Ghatkopar and this is mainly due to the proposed Andheri-Versova-Ghatkopar metro line that should be operational soon. The completion of this project will push capital values beyond belief! Values of commercial and residential property in the area should go up by 10-15% more in the next few months as well! This is why developers are eager to cash in on this sudden bonanza and are strategically locating projects in close proximity to the first ever metro railway link in Mumbai. This link will connect Andheri, Versova, Ghatkopar along with Azad Nagar, Airport Road, Chakala, Western Express Highway and Sakinaka. The Western and Eastern suburbs of Mumbai will also be well linked to each other post the completion of this project. This is why you will find many an upcoming commercial project in Ghatkopar being located as close as possible to the metro network. This link will boost connectivity hugely in the area and has already boosted the residential and commercial realty market in the Ghatkopar West area hugely in comparison to yesteryears. Travelling time between Ghatkopar and Versova will go down to 20 minutes only as this link has already started proving. This has a direct impact on the overall livability quotient of Ghatkopar West and hence...

Reuse, Renew with Eco Friendly Glass Bottles...

Water is an essential ingredient of all living creatures. Today, water is a portable, on-the-go fluid product. Everywhere you turn people are sporting their water bottles. Consumers understand the benefits of hydrating with water. If you take a look around you, most people are drinking from plastic bottles. Metal and stainless steel water vessels have been added to the mix. The water bottle is our 21st century accessory and most of the packaging is plastic. Ditch the Plastic But there is a movement to reverse the number of plastics by switching to Eco friendly glass bottles. Over the last decade, the desire to reduce our carbon footprint and green our living space have pushed manufacturers to clean up the containers used to sell water. The environmental impact of millions of plastic bottles resting in landfills with the life expectancy of “an eternity” is daunting, but that’s not the only reason to remove plastics. Bisphenol A or BPA for short is an industrial chemical used in the commercial packaging of our food and water. The 1960’s Revisited BPA is applied to produce certain plastics and resins going back to the 1960’s. BPA shows up in polycarbonate plastics which are produced by commercial manufacturing to package foods and beverages. Epoxy resins are used to line metal products such as food cans, bottle tops and water supply lines. Scientists suggest that these commercial plastics and resins leach BPA under certain conditions. Further studies suggest possible health side effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports that low levels of BPA are safe based on a review of hundreds of studies but their research is still on-going. Renew, Reuse & Recycle What can I...

Fortunately, if you know what you are looking for and the requirements you should have, it is not hard to find the perfect solar landscape lighting kit to cheerfully illuminate your outdoor area. Why Choose Solar? There are many reasons why people choose to use solar instead of electricity to light their homes and yards. -No Electricity Bill – One of the main reasons why people enjoy using solar power is that the cost of electricity can be frustratingly high. Solar power is a cost effective alternative because you don’t have to pay any electricity bills. -Environmentally Friendly – Perhaps the biggest reason why people convert to solar power is that it is a much more environmentally friendly option than other power sources such as electricity. The process of creating and using solar power involves generating usable, clean energy with the rays of the sun. -Increased Safety – Having electric outdoor lights poses a danger of electrocution, especially to young children and animals. Using long extension cords can also cause people to trip and hurt themselves, or for children and animals to become tangled up or strangled. What to Look For in Solar Landscape Lighting Kits When considering which of the many solar landscape lighting kits available you should buy and set up in your outdoor area, you should make sure the one you buy will fit in with the design scheme of not only your garden, lawn, or other outdoor space, but also the look of the outside of...
