You get out some books, and head into your workshop, only to realize you are missing the certain Siemens breakers that you need to finish the job.

Maintaining a house is not as easy a task as it once was. The modern handy man must be knowledgeable in both the practices of a carpenter and an electrician if he really wants to be self-reliable. Don’t over pay the professionals, just do it yourself!

Some Different Uses for GPS

Posted by: publisher  :  Category: Technology

The term GPS has become synonymous with tracking packages, getting directions, and is a military buzzword in this day and age; but what does Global Positioning System actually mean? GPS is in its most simple form a satellite that can pinpoint the location of a specific object using dedicated satellites that are orbiting the Earth and can respond to GPS signals and receivers on the ground. Whether it be GPS tracking of a package or shipment or satellite tracking for the military on enemy installations or troops, the use of GPS has never been more prolific or more important than right now.

Another great use of GPS in the modern age is Lojack, a vehicle recovery system that helps protect owners of automobiles from having their cars stolen. Often sold as an aftermarket feature or something to help entice potential buyers to buy a new vehicle, the Lojack system has a 90% in saving stolen cars and returning them. The way this system works is that the Lojack system transmits a silent radio system that can be tracked by various crime stopping services and databases. Then, once a Lojack car has been reported missing, these centers begin searching all available frequencies for the frequency of the stolen vehicle. This is just one of the many practical uses that GPS has in the modern world, and truly has expanded remarkably beyond the simple idea of giving accurate directions to any location on Earth.

An Introduction To Modules

Posted by: admin  :  Category: Technology

If you are working in the world of modules, you need to understand what they are and how to use them. Modules create generic components and plug-ins for input and output transmissions. Pluggable optical modules transmit and receive signals. They are physical form factors developed under a specific guideline put forth by the MSA document standards. There are a few different types of optical transceiver modules. Input modules, output modules and database modules. Each one provides different functions and acts differently. Input modules offer ways to enumerate and retrieve attributes. Output modules allow data to be stored and show transactions like semantics. Database modules enclose different devices for various database management systems.

Input modules are basically a drop-in replacement and are modeled after request attributes. Input modules have two additional attributes, the request object and configuration object. The configuration object is used for complex instructions in the input module.

Output modules are also modeled after request attributes, and as with input modules a request object and configuration object is the main difference. They provide you with a way to set an attribute to a value. Output modules are also different in that they show transactional behavior.

Database modules contain information on how to retrieve a value for an auto increment column and is typically called Auto Increment module. You can obtain the value before inserting a row as part of the SQL. Currently database modules support database management systems, HSQL, MySQL and Informix.

If you are purchasing and not writing your own modules there are a couple different types you want to be aware of.

Cisco SFP modules and Xenpak modules are a couple examples. Both transmit and receive optical signals and are known as pluggable optical transceivers. Each is developed and defined by the Multi-Source Agreement standards. They tend to be grouped into transmission speeds. Some support rates of 1Gpbs and some support rates of up to 10Gpbs.Cisco SFP modules are known as the new generation version of small form factor pluggable. They use a smaller type of interface and have a smaller body. The transition rates for these modules are about 100 Mbps up to 4+Gpbs. These modules are hot pluggable and are easy to change and maintain compared to traditional optical interface modules. Xenpak modules are a pluggable optical transceiver. This module was developed with the Mulit-Source agreement and is the biggest in 10g fiber transceiver modules. You can purchase them in copper line, single mode optical fiber line, and multimode optical fiber line. A normal copper line module spans 15 meters. Multimode modules come in examples such as 10gb-LX4, 10gb-LRM, and 10gb-SR.

Whatever modules you are working with, writing or purchasing, you should understand what each one does and how to use them. Seeking professional assistance is always helpful. If you are purchasing modules from a vendor, be sure they understand the technology and are experienced in using them. Their help will be vital when you have questions about the modules you are purchasing.
