wireless

Go Wireless!

Welcome to world of Wireless Technology! In this blog we will understand types of wireless technology and their applications.

There are three types of Wireless technology:

  1. Zigbee
  2. 2.4 GHz based wireless
  3. GSM/GPRS based wireless

Zigbee based wireless technology

Zigbee is used to create personal area network in 10 to 100 meter line of site connection. In this technology very low power is required. Battery life is long compare to other two. Zigbee is mostly used in home automation where distance is very low. Speed of Zigbee is 250 kbps defined

  • General Applications of Zigbee :
  1. Industrial equipment that requires low rate wireless data transfer
  2. Wireless light switches
  3. Electrical within home displays
  4. Traffic management system
  • Advantages :Simpler and less expensive ,Low power consumption & Easy to install

2.4 gHz based wireless technology

2.4GHz wireless network is used for most of industrial application in which distance is in kilo meters but not more then 3 km. It requires more power to send data than Zigbee. It is work on 2.4 GHz free band in India. This technology can send & receive data up to 3 km with high gain antenna. It must require line of site connectivity.

  • General Application of 2.4 GHz technology
  1. Water level transmitters
  2. Temperature transmitters
  3. Wireless energy monitoring system
  4. Data transmission between to place in plants.
  5. To create a long distance network in plants.
  • Advantages : Long distance communication,No additional cost after installation,Low maintenance cost compare to wired network

GSM/GPRS based wireless technology

This technology is used for very long distance data transmission. In this technology, there is no limitation of distance only requirement of GSM or GPRS network. It can send & receive a data on any network. In GSM/GPRS devices requires internet network to send & receive data from any location

  • General Application of GSM/GPRS technology
  1. Water distribution system over a city or state which can be connected by central location through GSM/GPRS
  2. Send & Receive analog or digital data of industrial plant to central control room
  3. In Tank farm automation
  4. Liquid level transmission in big refineries
  5. Process data transmission in big plants
  • Advantage : No limitation of distance

Gas Turbine Technology

Gas turbine engines power most commercial flights operating today. Yet many people are ignorant of the cutting-edge technologies used in the creation and operation of these engines.
Advancements in engineering have led to the development of gas turbines in the early 1900s, and turbines began to be used for stationary electric power generation in the late 1930s. Turbines revolutionized airplane propulsion in the 1940s, and in the 1990s through today have been a popular for new power generation plants in the United States.
Gas turbines produce high-quality exhaust heat that can be used in CHP (Combined Heat & Power) configurations to reach overall system efficiencies (electricity and useful thermal energy) of 70 to 80 percent. By the early 1980s, the efficiency and reliability of smaller gas turbines (1 to 40 MW) had progressed sufficiently to be an attractive choice for industrial and large institutional users for CHP applications.
The Mini Gas Turbine Power System from Turbine technologies is a self-contained jet engine laboratory featuring the purpose built SR-30 Turbojet engine. All aspects of gas turbine theory, fluids and thermodynamics can be simply demonstrated and readily explored.

Engineering Lab Equipment From “Art To Part” With In-House Capabilities
Turbine Technologies prides itself in its in-house capability to take ideas from “art to part”. Engineers and craftsmen utilize a number of software tools to create first article virtual prototypes. These electronic design concepts are transformed into production models via our on-site rapid prototyping lab, 5-axis CNC machines, super alloy vacuum investment casting foundry, and numerous other supporting elements.
ADVANCETECH is an authorized distributor for Turbine technologies Pvt. Ltd. For more information, regarding the Gas Turbine Products, please visit http://advancetech.in/education/aerodynamics-lab/gas-turbines

SIP

Now Its Time to SIP Technology!

SIP

What is SIP?

SIP : The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is a signaling communications protocol, broadly used  for controlling multimedia communication sessions such as voice  and video calls over Internet Protocol (IP) network.

The protocol defines the messages that are sent between endpoints, which direct establishment, termination and other essential components of a call. SIP can be used for creating, modifying and terminating sessions comprising of one or several media streams.

Basically, SIP is a text-based protocol with syntax similar to that of HTTP. There are two different types of SIP messages: requests and responses. The first line of a request has a method, defining the nature of the request, and a Request-URI, indicating where the request should be sent. The first line of a response has a response code.

Dealer boards use IP LAN/WAN infrastructures to provide greater flexibility of deployment options in combination with SIP.

They are designed to leverage industry standard protocols and to ensure an easy integration with your company’s IT solution providers and Administrative TDM or SIP Telephony infrastructures (PBX, IP PBX)

It has moved from a “hardware only” design to a combination of software and hardware components, facilitating platform upgrades and support.

Dealer Boards with SIP technology use multicast technologies to optimize bandwidth and offers three typical architectures: standalone, datacentre and remote, which can be simplified and combined.

So upgrade your Trading Floors with SIP based Dealer boards! And move ahead with the technology!

nuclear science

Nuclear Science experiments now can be taught in engineering Institutes!

Nuclear Engineering has begun to arise as a key discipline and world is looking towards it. The research in fission and fusion is growing with fresh efforts towards the development of advance technologies. India has set a target to achieve more than 20000 MWe in Nuclear power by 2020. In this field India is self-reliant. The recent interest of other nations to have nuclear agreements stems from the fact that today India is considered as a fully developed nuclear power. With nuclear renaissance taking place, other countries need skilled manpower to build and operate nuclear power plants.

With nuclear renaissance taking place, other countries need skilled manpower to build and operate nuclear power plants.

Engineering Institutes and colleges are also revamping their Nuclear Physics Labs with latest advanced nuclear physics laboratory kits. Before a decade ago, demonstrating Nuclear physics experiments in engineering labs was not possible.

Now, CANBERRA has introduced Basic and advanced lab kits which had made this possible.

ADVANCETECH is an authorized distributor for company named CANBERRA. CANBERRA has been serving the nuclear community for over four decades. The company is the leading provider of innovative and cost-effective nuclear measurement solutions used to maintain safety of personnel, assess the health of nuclear facilities and safeguard the public and the environment.
