    STid launches Spectre nano reader

    Our SPECTRE nano reader offers a faster entry/exit process and simple, hands-free use with top end-to-end security for hospitals, government agencies, universities and more.

    STid, creator of the world’s most awarded access control reader, announced today it has set a new standard in car park access control and simplified visitor management with its new SPECTRE nano reader. The multi-technology reader quickly recognizes employees, visitors, vendors, and their vehicles – simultaneously – for smooth, hands-free access control without compromising security.

    Easy to use, “all terrain” reader

    The next generation, hands-free reader increases speed of entry for anyone – or anything – on two feet, two wheels, four wheels or a whole fleet. It reads windshield tags, key fobs, cards, smartphones, or wearables using UHF and Bluetooth® to leverage end-user preferences for easier adoption. It is also part of the STid Mobile ID® ecosystem, which turns smartphones into virtual cards for both vehicle and pedestrian access control.

    Compatible with all access control systems worldwide, STid designed SPECTRE nano for easy integration regardless of managers’ tech expertise. The outside packaging is as rugged and durable as the technology to ensure the reader can stand up to harsh environments – everything from shock, heavy rain, and dust, to salt, frost, and fire. SPECTRE nano offers customized branding options to fit in at a bus station, corporate office, or private community, and is able for use in high-security industries. A cost-effective solution, the new reader can be installed and (almost) forgotten, with no maintenance or batteries required.

    “We’ve all experienced the long wait time to get in and out of parking garages trying to pay tolls or scan access badges, tolls or gates,” said Frederick Trujillo, U.S. operations manager, STid. “Our new SPECTRE nano reader solution offers a faster entry/exit process and simple, hands-free use with top end-to-end security for hospitals, government agencies, universities and more. Parking areas are especially vulnerable to theft, damage, vandalism and even acts of terrorism making improved access control critical.”

    Published

    on

    AerNos AerHome

    Many factors, including COVID-19, wildfires and other climate-related extreme weather, have raised awareness about indoor air and the health implications. We are leveraging our experience to help make people smarter about the air in their homes and keep their families healthy

    Air pollution is bad for our health and can be especially problematic for infants and young children contributing to asthma, autism, obesity, diabetes, ADHD and other mental health issues. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) describes indoor air pollution as the greatest environmental health risk to people.

    AerNos, a manufacturer of tiny, accurate nano gas sensors that detect multiple harmful gases in the air at parts-per-billion levels, believes knowing the quality of the air in your home has never been more important.

    This is why it is introducing AerHome, an indoor air quality monitor that will help people live healthier by making them smarter about their indoor air. It monitors Ozone, NO2, VOCs, PM10, 2.5 and 1.0, as well as temperature and humidity. It also includes a first ever replaceable sensor chip and remote updates for future enhancements. Not only does AerHome provide the data, but it shares expert insights to help people take targeted actions for a healthier home. Air quality readings, alerts, and history are delivered via a smartphone app.

    AerNos is partnering with the Sean Parker Allergy and Asthma Research Center at Stanford University to help them better understand the impact of breathing polluted air from wild fires on children in school and at home. The Center will provide AerHome devices to schools and families and use the data to develop recommendations to improve air quality and prevent disease to improve learning, decrease absenteeism, and ultimately decrease disparities in health outcomes.

    AerHome is launching today on Indiegogo with the opportunity to gift units for Stanford’s research in addition to purchasing AerHome units for the home.

    “While, AerNos has spent the past five years developing application-specific nano gas sensor modules for the B-B market, we are using our expertise to help people improve the air quality in their homes,” explained Sundip Doshi, founder and CEO. “Many factors, including COVID-19, wildfires and other climate-related extreme weather, have raised awareness about indoor air and the health implications. We are leveraging our experience to help make people smarter about the air in their homes and keep their families healthy.”

    on

    Powercast aims to save millions of one-time-use batteries from entering landfills yearly

    Powercast’s RF Wireless Power Technology Wins Global Sustainability Award for Reducing Battery Use, E-Waste

    We’re partnering with many manufacturers to create wirelessly rechargeable devices that keep batteries out of landfills. Charles Goetz, CEO of Powercast.

    The Business Intelligence Group today awarded Powercast with its Sustainability Initiative of the Year in the 2021 Sustainability Awards program. These awards honor those people, teams and organizations who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission.

    Powercast aims to make one-time-use batteries obsolete by working with electronic manufacturers to recharge batteries or replace them altogether with its over-the-air RF (radio frequency) wireless power technology. Many of today’s small electronic devices can be designed so they’re environmentally friendly, either with rechargeable batteries that can accept an RF wireless charge, or with no batteries that can be directly powered by RF power. A Powerharvester chip is embedded in devices to receive RF energy sent over the air from either a dedicated Powercast transmitter, or from industry-standard RFID readers. The Powerharvester then converts the RF to direct current (DC) to top off the battery or power the device.

    Powercast’s technology touches millions of users across 15+ industries, including automotive, consumer electronics, IoT, entertainment, retail, RFID, and sensors. The company’s collaborative approach and expertise in all aspects of product design, from vision through prototyping and commercialization, has resulted in dozens of applications and millions of units shipped.

    “We’re already partnering with many manufacturers to create wirelessly rechargeable devices that keep batteries out of landfills,” said Charles Goetz, CEO of Powercast. “But, we strive for the day where all devices will charge in the background when consumers enter their home, office or car, where they’ll never have to throw batteries away.”

    Powercast demonstrates how its technology can save time and money, and reduce battery waste, in its new retrofit video series, “Powered by Powercast.” In Episode One, Powercast created a wireless charging hand sanitizer station, which normally uses 4 C batteries. The company projects it could save hundreds of thousands of C batteries per year if adopted by a big box store. In Episode Three, Powercast created a wirelessly rechargeable Fluke Digital MultiMeter, a common diagnostic instrument used by engineers.

    About Powercast

    Learn about PI’s new high-performance, compact digital closed-loop piezo controller that’s cost effective too!

    Learn about PI’s new high-performance, compact digital closed-loop piezo controller that’s cost effective too!

    Based on 5 decades of piezo driver and motion controller expertise, PI’s digital piezo controller family grows again with the next generation E-709 closed-loop piezo controller and integrated driver, well suited for applications that require high performance motion with nanometer precision such as found in semiconductor surface metrology, autofocus systems, medical apparatus, laser-beam steering, 3D imaging, and multiphoton and confocal microscopy.

    Digital Controller with Fast Focus and Freeze, Automated Scans, Software Support

    The new E-709 compact digital piezo servo controller / amplifier and driver was designed providing 20kHz sampling rate, twice the power of its predecessor along with multiple times is positioning resolution. When used in image processing, scanning and microscopy applications, its advanced features such as high-performance linearization, high speed tracking, and PI’s unique F3 capability (Fast Focus & Freeze) come in handy. When used with a fast objective focusing motor such as the P-725, the autofocus drive can be bumplessly switched from an external (focus) sensor to the integrated position sensor inside the focusing stage. This feature allows for calibrated, precise, and highly stable motions on a nanometer scale, with respect to the focal plane.

    Software – Digital vs. Analog Closed-Loop Piezo Controllers

    The new E-709 compact digital piezo controller is supported by a comprehensive software package including drivers for LabVIEW, dynamic libraries for Windows and Linux, MATLAB, MetaMorph, µManager, etc. Despite all servo operations inside the controller are of digital nature, an additional analog control interface with high resolution A/D converters is included for ease of use with existing analog signals. Digital interfaces include USB, SPI, RS-232. Supported functions include Wave generator, data recorder, auto zero, and trigger I/O. The following article explains the difference between digital piezo servo controllers and analog piezo controllers.

    How to Find the Right Piezo Controller?

    Several application parameters should be considered when selecting the right closed-loop piezo controller for a specific nanopositioning or high-speed precision motion task. Examples are

    • Maximum required stroke / amplitude
    • Signal type (sinusoidal, triangular, trapezoidal, steps, …)
    • Frequency / duty cycle of the drive signal
    • Rise / fall time of steps
    • Operation time (Continuous 24/7, a few minutes or seconds at a time, …)

    To learn more on this subject, a selection guide on Piezo Controllers and Mechanisms is available.

    Safety Monitoring, Temperature Management

    Short-circuit proof, the E-709 provides safety and monitoring functionality with continuous input/output measurements as well as internal temperature. The driver is adaptable to a wide variety of operating conditions and temperature stable within 10 minutes of powering on.
