VdS Certified Smoke Detector

Smoke detectors by ELV: the danger a step advance blank, August 25, 2009 in Germany fires killed more than 500 people come each year. The majority of them die of smoke inhalation. Additional annual consequences of fire outbreaks in the private sector: about 5,000 injured, and property damage of over a billion euros.

Smoke detectors can save lives in such situations has been proven and prescribed therefore even increasingly in residential buildings. With the intelligent smoke detectors RM 100 and the smoke detector BidCoS ELV with extremely long battery life offers maximum security with reliable alarm system in case of danger. A smoke detector can run its life-saving function at any time, is a high battery life of crucial importance. And if the Exchange is necessary, replacement batteries must be immediately and readily available. Therefore, ELV uses no rare Special batteries, but three all available standard AA batteries. It does not as usual for smoke detectors use more expensive 9-V block batteries, resulting in a more efficient operation with a long battery life. Battery life is virtually as long as the stock of appropriate batteries without using it is in use as a single detector at least seven, and depending on the quality of the batteries up to ten years Another important criterion in the choice of a suitable electronic Lifesaver\”represents the quality. The smoke detector by ELV have tested brand quality and are already after the new VdS guideline for radio smoke detectors as well as compliance with the new European device DIN EN14604. The easy-to-install devices suitable for use in new and existing buildings. Based on the photoelectric scattered light principle, the smoke detector monitors the room to smoke. Thus, an incipient fire is at an early stage recognized and warned in good time before the dangerous smoke gases.

Intensity

The exercise is based on muscle activity, which is determined by the consumption of oxygen and energy expenditure. The more energy expenditure and oxygen consumption requires a physical activity, the more intense this may be considered. Obviously, it’s not the same give a comfortable ride through the park to run a marathon.To measure the intensity of an exercise we take for reference the maximum aerobic capacity or maximum volume of oxygen (VO2), which would be the maximum amount of oxygen that is capable of using our body to conduct an intense physical exercise. There are two key factors that determine the amount of oxygen used for our tissues: the amount of air that can get our lungs and the speed at which this comes to fabrics, ie the rate at which the heart beats. So, when the lungs have a maximum amount of air that can be taken from the atmosphere, the amount of oxygen coming really determined by the variation in heart rate. A more heart rate reaches more oxygen to tissues, and therefore will be the largest volume of oxygen. The heart rate is a parameter easy to determine, because just taking the pulse. So, we can substitute for the VO2 max heart rate (FCM), which would be the maximum limit to which we should be beating heart before the physical realization of an effort to stay within safety limits. The FCM is very easy to calculate. Suffice it to detract from the age of 220 years. Example: a person of fifty years will be as FCM of 220-50 = 170.The intensity of an exercise could be classified as follows:In people with diabetes the type of exercise recommended for moderate to serious, that is, between 60% and 80% of the FCM, starting with lower values and rising gradually as the subject is going to have practiced in the exercise. To calculate it we see an example:Diabetic for 50 years with 70 pulses at rest:220-50 = 170and # 160;; In this result it left the pulsations at rest: 170 -70 = 100.60% would be 100 x 0.60 = 60 This result is that we have the margin of increase in heart rate. As the frequency at rest was 70, then 70 60 = 130, which would limit the pulse.The limit for this guy to do physical exercise would be 130 beats per minute, should not exceed this heart rate low risk of complications arising from the exercise. When the subject already has the habit of getting exercise, you can upload up to 80%, to give a limit of 80 70 = 150 beats per minute. The diabetic can have alteration of the nerves that depend on the autonomic nervous system, responsible among other things set the pace at which the heart beats. To avoid complications arising from this fact, it is advisable to start with the physical exercise levels even under the FCM, about 40%, and go climbing gradually to reach the minimum 60% limit at which the physical activity begins to be really effective. In the previous example, would be 110 beats per minute. The intelligencer / Wheeling News-Register McMECHEN – Andrew Kordack calls himself “Mr. the way to get easy is simple Gadget, but not because he’s handy around the house. It is because he has a heart machine running 24 hours a day. Palatka Daily News (ARA) – Everyone knows that exercise is good. Doctors have told us for years that exercise can help us waste, look better, feel better and even sleep better. is the way to go However, the performance sounds like work, and many of us that we simply do not have time to get more work for our daily lives.

Out came clearly structured jobs, a higher well-being of employees as guarantee, such as a higher efficiency. Also Ulrich Baur, Director of the data center, is convinced that the new premises: with the consolidation of the areas we create overlooking our customers the basis for a process – and communication-optimal work environment in a room as well as a presentation enabled environment, that is up to date. Basis for each refactoring is a photorealistic 3-d program, which developed the company itself. Using this program, each room can be redesigned in a very short time.

Here, interested parties can try out advance once all functions of a data center. Not only an alarm scenario can be experienced live there. On the program are also testing a person sheath and the views of sophisticated monitoring systems. The cube technology offered by JST, or rear-projection technology, combines projectors and projection in a device. A light engine is built into the housing of the cube-shaped cubes. These projects the images on a mirror, which is also installed in the Interior of the cube. The mirror in turn forwards the image on the inside of the screen, which abgiebt the image on the front of the cube. The projection operation takes place in the Interior of the cube, so in a dark, closed housing. So have little light loss of images thrown in at the front and are therefore high contrast and brilliant as the projections of ordinary projectors.

Image Scanner

WideTEK large format scanners now faster the fast and high resolution large format scanner is a reliable solution for demanding users in architectural and engineering firms, of cartography, GIS systems and for copy service providers. The device produces sharp scans from templates with a width up to 36 inches (915 mm) in an optical resolution of 1200 x 600 dpi. Due to higher scanning speed, scan processes can be shortened by scanning through the process up to the digital image output by up to 20 percent. A factor that saves tremendous labor costs in particular at scan service providers”, emphasizes Thomas Ingendoh, Managing Director of image access. The devices are suitable for all users, which place emphasis on the quality scan in addition to the scanning speed”. In addition to the savings from labor costs, low maintenance requirements is a further positive aspect. This is among other things by the dustproof encapsulated camera technology with patented stitching procedure, the LED lighting (life of 50,000 hours) and allows the small number of wear parts. The user controls the scanner either with a standard Internet browser through the Web-based user interface or via the integrated touch screen. With a monitor (option) directly connected to the scanner, the device can be operated completely independent of PC. After scanning, you can change the user image parameters such as color, brightness, contrast, etc.. The effects are immediately displayed on the screen. The template must not be rescanned. Thanks to walk-up scanning, the user sends the scan from the scanner directly to any destination in the network (E.g., target directory, FTP-server or network printer).
