Keep The Light On - Power Protection Systems

Written by oneself on 10:28 AM

Since there is such danger in variable electrical current, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) have been developed to cover various types and levels of protection for electrical equipment. While these devices are still rather expensive, new developments have recently brought their cost within the reach of smaller companies and even some private residences.

The least expensive, but also least efficient, of the UPS systems is the "off-line" power back-up. These contain a storage battery that can produce the required voltage for a period of up to a half an hour. These units are directly plugged into the standard electrical system where they passively monitor the flow and can detect a power loss and activate within four to twenty-five milliseconds of detection.

The most effective for systems that are critically sensitive to power fluctuations or outages is the double conversion online UPS. These expensive but effective devices are used extensively in industry and computer server environments. One major difference is that in the online system, the batteries are never disengaged from the flow but are continually used and recharged during normal usage. Thus when a spike or fluctuation occurs, there are no relays that have to be engaged. The modulation sensors will maintain a steady electrical supply to the equipment.

There are industry specific devices that function differently from the standard UPS's. The telecommunications industry for example, almost exclusively uses direct current (DC) systems. This low voltage application is easier to use and install as there are fewer safety regulations required in its use. Research into using these systems for protecting computer data centers continues although the power requirements for such systems create additional problems with excessive heat creation in the current units.

There are many more types of power system protection devices for both industrial and hoe appliance applications. With some personal uninterruptible power supply systems providing protection with as little as five hundred watts there is no reason ever to risk you electronic equipment again.

How To Install Outdoor Fiber Optic Cables In Underground Ducts And Innerducts

Written by oneself on 10:24 AM

:: Duct/Innerduct materials and colors:

Fiber ducts are usually made from HDPE (high-density polyethylene), PVC or other compound. They are usually in black or gray. Fiber innerduct is usually orange or yellow.

:: Why usually fiber ducts and innerducts are corrugated?

Fiber ducts and innerducts are corrugated to provide the following benefits:

1. Decreasing pulling tensions during installation

2. Very flexible and can be used in installation locations where many turns are involved

3. After installation, corrugated innerduct should be left for a day to allow the innerduct to retreat back into the duct through its corrugated spring action

:: The use of pulling tape

Fiber optic cable pulling tape is preinstalled in fiber duct and innerduct in the factory. This saves significant time during the installation process. Duct and innerduct can also be pre-lubricated in the factory, thus significantly reduces pulling tensions.

:: Never bend over its minimum bend radius

Just like fiber optic cable, fiber duct and innerduct also have a minimum bend radius spec. Never ever should the duct or innerduct be bent tighter than its minimum bend radius.

:: What is supported radius?

The supported radius is the minimum bend radius when the duct is bent around a supporting structure such as in another duct or on a reel.

:: What is unsupported radius?

The unsupported radius is the minimum bend radius when the duct has no supporting structure in the bend.

:: Benefits of using fiber duct

Fiber duct protects the fiber cable and also provides an opportunity for future cable access and expansion. Fiber optic cable can be pulling into existing duct. The duct should usually be oversized to allow future cables be pulled in.

:: Benefits of using fiber innerduct

Fiber innerduct provides protection for the fiber cable from being disturbed by other companies' cable installation operation. It also provides extra protection from the environment. Or fiber innerduct can be used in old duct installation.

:: Things to keep in mind

1. Install end plugs

After the fiber optic cable is installed into a duct or innerduct, end plugs should be installed to provide a water seal. No debris should be able to enter the duct or innerduct, and watertight should always be maintained for the duct or innerduct.

2. Duct and innerduct should be properly sized for future expansion possibility

As always, planning for future expansion is crucial for real successful projects. A maximum of 40% fill ratio is a good practice to follow. The duct size should be increased for long installation lengths with many turns. A larger duct can help to reduce cable-pulling tensions. Standard duct sizes vary from 3 to 8 inch ID and innerduct sizes vary from 0.75 to 2 inch.

:: The benefit of using duct lubricant

Duct lubricant can significantly reduce the cable's coefficient of friction, thus lessening the pulling tension during cable pulling process. This is especially important in long cable duct pulls and pulls with many turns.

Duct lubricant spillage should be cleaned up as soon as possible to prevent accident since it is very slippery. Manufactures' recommended procedure for cleaning lubricant provides good instruction on how to do the cleaning.

ASUS Striker Extreme - CPU INIT Error

Written by oneself on 6:14 AM

by: Brian Walker

I guess there are plenty of people out there who have purchased the ASUS Striker Extreme motherboard and are now disappointed with their choice and definitely frustrated with ASUS. Those where my feelings, too.

After wasting tens of hours on internet searching and many more on clearing my mobo's CMOS, I think I found out the solution, which I would share with all the folks out there who experience the same issues.

If you get the CPU INIT error message and you try to clear the CMOS, but the mobo seems dead, then probably your problem is your memory's voltage.

Briefly, my mobo seemed dead, with no beeping, no posting. The only thing I could see was the CPU INIT message on the mobo's LCD. However, the CPU fan together with all the mobo's leds where on, which means that there was voltage across it. I tried all the possible ways of clearing the CMOS, with and without cards, swapping memory stick or sticks and so on, but with no results.

Your mobo is most likely fine if the CPU fan works and here is the way to bring it back to life.

First of all you need to have a low specification RAM, running on probably 667 MHz, but the most important of all is the memory voltage. The memory needs to run with 1.8 Volts. The OCZ 9200 I got uses 2.3 Volts for operating, which is far away from 1.8 Volts. Note that the default settings for the memory voltage on your BIOS is set to AUTO, which is actually 1.8 Volts. This is probably the reason that you cannot clear your CMOS with high data rate modules, as all of them use higher voltage than that.

Step 1

Remove all the power cords including the 24-pin ATX connector (EATXPWR) and maybe the 2×4 (8-pin EPS) or 1×4 ATX12V connector (the one which powers up the CPU and is located just next to it).

Step 2

Remove all the cards including your graphics card

Step 3

Place only one Memory Stick at the last slot (the one further from CPU).

Step 4

Clear your CMOS.

Extreme Procedure to Reset CMOS.01 - Take out the power cord. All this must be done without the power connected.
02 - Put the jumper "CLRTC" (above the CLR_CMOS button) from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3.
03 - Push the reset button "CLR_CMOS" in. (Battery is now disconnected normally).
04 - Take out the cmos battery and leave it like that for at least 3 hours. (This is to be sure).
05 - After 3 hours put the battery back in.
06 - Push again the the reset button out.
07 - Replace the jumper back to it's original place. Pins 1-2
08 - Put back in the power cord and turn on the power.
09 - When booting, scream very hard "YES" and quickly push the "Delete" to get into bios.
10 - Flash the new bios with the floppy and you should hopefully be fine.
11 - When all works, connect everything and starting having fun with your system.

Step 5

Put the graphics card on.

Step 6

Connect all the power cables, including the 24-pin ATX connector (EATXPWR) and the 2×4 (8-pin EPS) or 1×4 ATX12V connector.

Step 7

Power UP

You should now hear the desired BEEP and the motherboard should normally post. If everything works fine, shut down your PC, remove the low performance memory stick and install the high rate memories. During the posting enter the BIOS and change the memory voltage from AUTO to the appropriate value.

Please note that, if you do not have the newest BIOS version you should do so as soon as possible. My BIOS version is currently 1102, which is the latest. If you notice on the BIOS updates, there are many memory combatibility issues fixed on each updated version. Therefore the very first thing when you bring the motherboard in life is to update the BIOS keeping the low performance memory and then install the high data rate memory sticks.

In case that you have any query about the process mentioned in this post or you did not eventually brought your motherboard back to life, please feel free to leave your message here.

You can also leave a message to let other people know what you have experienced and of course whether this trick worked for you or not.

Evolution of Monitors

Written by oneself on 6:07 AM

By Manjula Dinesh

People often are used to upgrade their office and home PCs. A few people upgrade their PCs by exchanging the old one for the new one. A few people prefer just upgrading the outdated parts. One good example is the monitor.

The two different monitor technologies are CRTs and the LCDs. CRTs use the cathode ray tubes and are so hazardous to the human health. They cause headaches due to a high refresh rate. These operate at very high voltages and can persist long even after the power is turned off. It consumes more electricity than an LCD screen.

It even emits a small amount of X-rays which can cause severe side effects when exposed continuously. The only advantage the CRT has over the LCD is the resolution and the price.

But if you can buy a refurbished LCD, It can beat the cost of a CRT monitor. The LCDs consume less electricity and are less hazardous to our eyes and do not emit X-rays. The image is very sharp, thanks to the liquid crystal display technology.

LCD monitors contains two sheets of polarizing element filled with liquid crystal solution in between. When current is passed through the liquid solution, it causes the crystals to align so that light can't pass between them. Each crystal acts as shutter letting light to pass through them and blocking the light.

When human health is given the priority LCDs have the upper end and when price and the resolution is given importance the CRTs emerge as the victors. Its all up to you to pick the one you need.

High Def DVD Technology Has Risks To Backers

Written by oneself on 6:03 AM

Toshiba and Sony have a lot riding on their high def DVD technology, and that's why the two have been in such a fierce battle to dominate the market for this technology. Both of these two electronics giants have their own high def DVD formats. Both of these formats can be used to store and retrieve an entire full length HDTV movie on a normal sized optical disc. And neither of the two formats can be played on the other's players.

Generally, it's agreed that only one of the two high def DVD formats can survive this format war, but there are two other outcomes that aren't discussed as often. The first outcome, one that's fairly likely actually, is that both formats will survive the war and will both exist side by side for the lifetime of the technology. The other outcome, which is also conceivable, is that both of these formats will be defeated by some other technology.

First, the scenario where both formats exist side by side. This would come about because of third party technology that could make the distinction between the two formats irrelevant. There are already technologies like this in existence. One is the dual format disc on which a movie title, in both formats, is encoded onto a single disc. As the standard way to release discs, people would be able to buy high def discs without any thought as to which type of player they own. Another solution comes in the form of a dual format player. These devices are also already in existence, but are presently so expensive that it makes more sense to buy a player for each of the two formats- it would be cheaper.

There are lots of new technologies on the horizon that could also bring about the demise of both formats. One of the more likely ones is high capacity hard drive technology. With hard drives larger than a terabyte already available, and improved video compression technology, it may soon be possible to buy portable hard drives preloaded with an abundance of movies. These movies could be unlocked for viewing one by one in exchange for paying a small fee, which would reduce the upfront cost while allowing consumers to avoid the inconvenience of downloading the movies off of the Internet. Of course, these hard drives could have space reserved for the storage of recently released movies that could be downloaded off of the Internet as well.

Another interesting possibility is that HDTV could soon be obsolete, and therefore HDTV DVD's would become obsolete as well. One of the technologies that could replace HDTV is 3D TV. Of course, any kind of 3D TV of the future probably will have HDTV resolutions, but the extra amount of data required to render a three dimensional image would exceed the storage capabilities of even high def DVD's. Perhaps HDTV DVD technology could still be used for short format 3D HDTV, but it would hardly be sufficient for full length titles in the new format.

With these and other new technologies on the horizon, putting a lot of resources into high def DVD technology is a risky proposition indeed.

Mobile Wireless Router Spotlight: WiFlyer Mobile

Written by oneself on 8:07 AM

By: Dean Forster

With the introduction of wireless networks, people find it easier to install and configure a network. However, until a few years back, if you wanted to connect to the Internet or to connect to a network, you had to plug in a network cable and were restricted to stay near a UPT cable plug. If you wanted to move around, there were very difficult and expensive solutions. Engineers have developed a series of wireless devices able to transmit data around a building, but at very low speeds and huge costs. When the wi-fi standards had been established, people and organizations were given the opportunity to connect with one another without using any wires at all, at convenient costs and a decent connection speed in the same time. The technologies have evolved significantly. There are many devices that are wi-fi compatible that allow you to access the Internet from wi-fi spots and wireless networks: laptops, PDAs and 3g phones are just some of the mobile devices incorporating wireless chips. In fact, the networks have evolved so quickly, that they offer speeds similar to broadband connections.

Wireless equipment manufacturers design devices that are more and more advanced and this can be seen in their size. A mobile wireless router can be the size of a PDA. The WiFlyer router is a powerful device allowing you to set a wireless network in no time and to configure and secure it easily. You can connect between them all sorts of wi-fi compatible devices, such as modern laptops, video phones supporting wi-fi technologies and USB or PCI wireless network cards.

The WiFlyer mobile wireless router supports the latest 802.11 standards, the 802.11b and the 802.11g specifications. This translates to a speed of over 54Mbs and it is able to send and receive data for a radius of up to 200 ft (at these distances it supports a speed of over 11Mbs). If you are interested in securing your wireless network, the WiFlyer mobile wireless router supports 128-bit WEP protection to make sure no one accesses your network unauthorized. The WiFlyer is relatively simple to install and configure. All you have to do is to connect it to the main internet connection and it will automatically configure itself with the required settings. It also supports dial-up connections and it is able to share the available internet connection between several devices. It comes with an external power adapter, but it very compact (in fact it is smaller than the router itself), making the device a truly portable unit. In independent reviews, the WiFlyer mobile wireless router was able to send and receive data through concrete walls inside a bureau office, making it a viable solution for businesses and private networks.

O2 Mobile Broadband - of networks and not-great business decisions

Written by oneself on 7:17 AM

by Mark Bonnett

O2 were the last network to get into the world of mobile broadband. Maybe they didn't quite realise how important it would be? Either way, their offering hasn't been greeted with open arms, but with hoots of derision. Read on to find out why!

Mobile broadband - background info

What O2 seemed to have not picked up that quickly, is how important mobile broadband is, and will continue to be in future. But first, an explanation may be in order. What is mobile broadband, after all? Well, to put it simply, mobile broadband is broadband internet access while you're mobile, while you're out and about, and not tied to a desk. And no, that DOESN'T mean it uses WiFi. Far from it... and in fact, there's a very real possibility that mobile broadband will replace WiFi altogether!

The reason it's taking off in such a big way is two-fold. Well, actually, on reflection, it's three-fold. Oh ok, go on, then, four-fold. First, it really is MOBILE broadband, as you can take it anywhere with you, and use wherever mobiles phones get a signal. Second, it's fast, hitting speeds of up to 7.2Mbps, depending on network and coverage, making it faster than the average home broadband connection. Third, it's very, very, very easy to set up, since the installation, in all cases, involves nothing more complicated than pushing a USB plug in, and clicking 'yes'. Finally, it's great value for money, with the cheapest tariffs coming in at around the £10-15.

O2 Mobile Broadband - why it can't handle the competition

And now, we come to O2's mobile broadband offering. Sure, it's not bad in terms of speed, despite O2 having earlier limited customers' 3G and HSDPA speeds on their mobile phones to a fraction of the speed they should be. But there are two big problems with the offering, which mean that it won't be a big hit with the public.

First up is the simple fact that... well, if you want O2 mobile broadband, you'll only be able to get it if you already have an O2 mobile phone! Which limits their potential customers, and, to me, doesn't make a great deals of sense, if they want to push mobile broadband to a wider market. The other crucial flaw, though, is the price, coming in at a minimum of £20 per month, more than any other network. Which is a shame, but I guess it goes to show... O2 may be good at mobile phones, but they seem to be absolute drawers at mobile broadband.
