Since the company was founded in 1920, there are few products Carling Technologies hasn't turned "ON" and fewer industries that haven't turned to Carling for solutions. With ISO and TS registered manufacturing facilities and technical sales offices worldwide, Carling ranks among the world's largest manufacturers ofcircuit breakers, switches, power distribution units, digital switching systems and electronic controls. Carlingis continuously forging a tradition of leadership in quality and product innovation to meet the demands of today’s fastest growing industries.
Whenever we hear the word “Tornado” we think of destruction and catastrophe. But, to one man it meant, “How can I generate power with that?” It makes sense. Most large scale power generation methods, directly or indirectly involve rotating parts and tornadoes possess a huge amount of rotational kinetic energy. So if we could create a tornado and harness its kinetic energy, it would effectively provide us with a clean source of energy (provided that it is controlled). Generally tornadoes are caused by the presence of a large temperature gradient present in the atmosphere.
A long time ago machines and computers were invented to reduce manual efforts and time so as to perform the tasks efficiently. After a lot of growth and development in the field, we have finally come to a stage where almost everyone has access to technology. However, this is actually just a beginning because the upcoming advancement is going to take a much bigger and better shape in the form of Artificial Intelligence.
Although AI is a branch of computer science, today there’s no field which is left unaffected by this technology. The aim is to teach the machines to think intelligently just the way humans do.
Photodetectors have a wide role to play in almost all basic electronic project these days. These photodetectors are mostly used for sensing the presence or absence of any object. The photo-based equipment or devices can be classified into three categories - the photovoltaic devices, photoconductive devices, and the photoemission devices. However, in this blog, we will only talk about photovoltaic devices. Moving over to the photovoltaic cells, these are most commonly known as solar cells. Derived from silicon, these have the ability to bring out the voltage in light’s presence. The amount of voltage produced by them mainly depends on the material that is used for making solar cells. A silicon-based solar cell can give you 0.5 volts of potential difference in direct sunlight. When this solar cell is connected with a closed circuit than the flow of current takes place through the circuit. The quantity of current generated by the solar cell is determined by surface areas of the solar cell.
Eryk.io is a personal blog which deals with home automation and Internet of Things. In series of experiments, an attempt was made to write a software based on an RGB led strip with Wi-Fi controller. It contains a chip called ESP8266 chip, which can be hacked and one can write its own software for it.
There are pins available on this board to reprogram the device if you are really not comfortable with the setup and don’t want to connect to the Wi-Fi network of this controller every time or want to change the color. Further, for the casing, a small circuit board that includes the ESP8266 chip, is available.
In this series of tutorials till now, we have worked on single side and two sided Printed circuit boards. Now let’s learn about multi layer PCBs.
Multi layer PCB contains at least three layers and above for example: 4, 6, 8, 16…..64- layers. Multi layer PCBs are especially used in case of the over loaded weight and volume. Apart from that these are mainly used in professional electronic equipment circuit designing and in complex circuits like military equipment, computers, mobiles, etc.
We all know that LDR (light dependent resistor) can be used as one of the most suitable light intensity detector because of its working principle. It works on the principle of photoconductivity. It’s made up of such material whose conductivity varies as per light falls on it. As more light falls on it, more number of photon strikes. The kinetic energy of photons is given to electrons - that makes more number of free electrons – that leads to an increase in conductivity of the device. Thus as light intensity increases, the conductivity increases (resistance decreases) and vice versa. So, the change in the resistance of LDR can be the measurement of the amount of falling light.
A smart city is the foundation for a smarter world. But what is smart city. What are we expecting from a smart city and how would it be to live in a smart city. The question are simple but answer to those are complicated. Let’s try to understand the answer in a simple way.
A smart city is an urban settlement with optimized, smartly managed and properly connected resources. A smart city present all its resources in a well-organized manner. A smart city combine technology, luxury and power consumption to make life much smoother and easier. Smart city install sensor based nodes at every possible corner of the city so as to get the update from everywhere through IoT.
