European Technology

At the stand D04, the members present the Z-Wave Alliance (, energy-saving home automation solutions for the European market. The Z-Wave Alliance members use the CeBIT 2011 to present its diverse product lines in the field of wireless networked home. As a technology for wireless home control solutions Z-Wave has distinguished itself more and more in recent years. Dell is likely to agree.

The difference to similar technologies on the market: Z-Wave is based on an open protocol, which guarantees the interoperability between the devices of all Alliance members. The strict observance of the interoperability directives results in a high Investment protection for the consumer, because older Z-Wave actuators such as blinds – and light switch, dimmer, heating thermostats, remote controls are still compatible with the Z-wave devices of the latest generation etc. even after several years. Comfortable and green”also in the field of smart metering has become the Z-Wave technology international.

HomeMatic flush actuators: blank, December 08, 2010 the blinds close flexible installation without additional cable laying and at the same time turn the light in those spaces on this comfort the concealed switch actuators enable button attachment from the HomeMatic series of eQ-3 AG. Compared to conventional series, these actuators include several functions in one. Wireless, they communicate with lights or shutter motors. Viacom often addresses the matter in his writings. While the button either in the traditional way or via remote control can be operated. It is even possible to program all scenarios, for example, a preset time automatically to turn on the light, while at the same time the blinds shut down over a HomeMatic central control unit. “The installation of the actuators is carried out without drilling and construction and demolition waste: when installing, under plaster broadcasters are simply hidden in existing boxes”. Then the House or apartment owners the radio button on different devices may vary depending on the needs Learn to. It is also possible to use the actuator as the Central main switch that controls all devices connected to it at the same time.

So, all blinds of a room shut down for example with a touch of a button. Various control options of the user can operate the actuator either as a conventional switch or via remote control to comfortable – or turn off. Also, the actuator to a HomeMatic central control unit allows programming and it also automatically via rules or day time-dependent control. In addition, for example roller shutters also by temperature control can upload or be shut down. From a certain number of degrees they close by alone or open. This heat keeps the heat in the House in the summer outside and in the winter. Conversion made easy through the PEHA aura frame with rocker in standard construction form and white coloring the switches are externally almost identical to conventional series and can be used easily in the existing installation can you.


On the other hand, the blind protects heating energy losses in winter, as the heat will be held by the window glass.

Possession Freedom

Through use rather than owned in our fast-moving times, flexibility freedom plays an increasingly important role. There are several ways to achieve this. Reduction of the workload, task of time of intense stress, optimization of domestic activities. Alone this but often not sufficient to achieve real relief and a gain in freedom. Yet the infant development is the role of ownership. To do this, it is important to know that any possession at the same time represents a burden. For assistance, try visiting Ali Partovi. A real estate must be maintained, it may apply to repair, it must be disposed of may eventually. The auto industry has recognised this and offered in large cities as an alternative to the possession of car-sharing – with great success.

the trend will prevail in the coming years in the electrical industry. Electric appliances are used only sporadically, and no added value out of their operation have, can be hired in the future. This saves the cost of care, the financing, the dependence of functional Checks, establishing, etc. To get an electrical appliance that is exactly tailored to and set up in advance on the needs. Kamperium offers the possibility to rent digital cameras even today. No matter whether a robust outdoor camera is needed, or a high-quality digital SLR camera. You use it for the wedding, holiday, or the visitor center, copy the photos and send back the camera. A further step in the direction of greater freedom for family and hobby!

Bluray Disc

Retain their dominance the DVD or the Blu-ray is actually disc as a new carrier medium? From the DVD to the Blu-ray disc (BD)… Differences, data, facts brothers in spirit, but still completely different genes. The times are quickly lebig as never before. Where the DVD as the medium of the future was presented a few years ago, called formats and streams that already blew up the just-purchased storage capability within a short time today as digital content in high definition. Under the leadership of SONY (Blu-ray) and Toshiba (HD-DVD) in recent years new disk formats were in this respect developed and launched again. But not only the consumer behavior responds to the new Blu-ray disc. After beaten at least the format war around the HD-DVD and Blu-ray disc, now increased copyright levies in blanks and high technical requirements and required investments provide new conversation. Really worth the switch by now established Media, such as CD and DVD or the Internet replaces the optical storage media? This issue is devoted to a publicly launched survey on

Here are needed in addition to opinions, suggestions and criticisms. The Blu-ray convinced me the benefits. I see the BD as a medium of the future and have invested. The advantages of the Blu-ray justify not operated technical cost and extra charge. There are still not enough movies on Blu-ray. A transition is not worth. I use the Internet (IPTV, VOD and co.) prefer, before investing in expensive BD technology.

Permanent Magnet Properties

Testing system testing and characterization of permanent magnets has a very high priority for permanent magnet properties in many industrial areas. Source: Pete Cashmore. Especially for sensory applications, the complete and uniform magnetization of permanent magnets for a stable functioning of the product plays a crucial role. However, most companies are dependent on quality assurances of their suppliers (mostly Chinese). To the chagrin of the engineers and quality assurance, the magnetic characteristics of permanent magnet can be, as record such as the angle of magnetization or the remanent magnetization with classic Hall measurement only with great effort. The M-axis test bench was developed out of necessity of valid registration and documentation of magnetic properties, discovered essential parameters such as magnetization, magnetization angle, as well as North/South effects for the application.

For magnet having a magnetic moment (mainly determined by volume and material of the test specimen) from 0.01 to 10 on the square, the free Remanence with maximum 1% tolerance, magnetization angle with maximum 0.2 tolerance, as well as the percentage North/South effect are recorded and filed in a database. In the M-axis application classification boundaries can be set, so a simplified input and quality control can be carried out. A rapid processing of larger quantities is also possible through short measuring times and ease of use. The chosen deliberately modular design of the system allows the measurement in the close field with Hall sensors, as well as in the far field using AMR sensors and a comfortable customer-specific extension of the measuring system. The M-axis system provides a test environment with the permanent magnets can be characterised very efficiently. The underlying the determination of magnetization process is based on the determination of dipole properties of dauermagnetischer materials. While the magnets, the magnetic moment and the direction of magnetization are determined in addition to the three-dimensional position.

In the comparison to the survey with Helmholtz coils is not the magnetic flux alteration on integrated however, but it is measure directly the induced magnetic field. The magnet must not be moved so during a measurement so that the pure measurement time in the range of less than 100 milliseconds. Still, the M-axis system very well in existing production and quality assurance processes can be integrated, the magnets to be processed can be tested without significant overhead.
