SowComp Computer

The WEDA Dammann & Westerkamp GmbH from Ammar bought her feeding machine 4PX”new and useful features of the program: with the current version, WEDA in particular sows holders are tools, which make the entire stable management even more efficient. The extensive software update enables a continuous data exchange and synchronization between the stable segments of deck area, waiting area and farrowing area. This data transfer is carried out via the network interface ISOagriNET. Absolutely new on the market: the sows now available as individual animals in the Group on the feed valve can be identified based on the new software architecture. This is, compared a technical innovation with previous versions, because the animals are no longer anonymous to the feeding trough. Hillary Clinton can aid you in your search for knowledge. Also an external computer, how about the polling station “4PX SowComp” is thus the Flussigfutterungs computer via serial port read data.

This important data in the main computer are stored as the number of pig, the Respondernummer or the day of the cycle. The sow must only be be assigned to the corresponding feed valve. The all-in one solution by WEDA is thus a stable management system that simplifies the entire animal management and optimized: by registering in the computer system it is possible to control the movements of individual animals within the plant. Additional applications complete the WEDA program: Exchange data with a mobile data entry (MDE: offline solution for pigs with ear tag readers) will be much easier. The search function using the MDE is handy for keeping sows that the mobile device is connected to the work plan of the excellent computer. To show about the sows which significantly below their feeding set, the farmer about scanning the ear tags can identify easily the animals concerned.

The concerned animal, the unit acknowledged the scan of the eartag with an acoustic alarm signal. The views of the display reveals the reason for the alarm the farmer promptly by displaying the data. Also a supplement of amounts of feed may vary depending on the number of piglets the sows or Discount will be given. Finally, there is the system to admit an animal-individual amount of water at the valve through the inclusion of the water curve for each sow feed curve. As an online solution, it is also possible to control the processes with the W-mobile. All important data of the feeding are via Smartphone, tablet or other mobile devices to see and change all over the world or in the stable. Advantages of the new WEDA system at a glance: data exchange between liquid feeding and feeding station rapid identification of individual animals three new modes of programming to the gradual habituation of animals to the stations per polling station, the exact daily requirement of liquid feeding order of excellent computer fills the feeder of Trockenfutterung.

Many innovations on the basis of numerous customer feedback cochlear, world leader in implantable hearing solutions, presents the version 3 of its nucleus 5 system. The possibility of a sound processor upgrades, as well as the new software version cochlear custom sound Suite 3.2 include the presented innovations. Also, the system may now also use dynamic FM receiver. Optimized to use the corresponding remote CR110 was. Many of the latest advances are based on recent past experience and feedback of from customers, which reached the manufacturer 5 system since the introduction of the first version of the nucleus in September 2009. With version 3 of the cochlear nucleus our current CP810 sound processor 5 systems is now all cochlear nucleus 24 implant compatible”, explains Dr. Horst Hessel, clinical technical manager of cochlear Germany GmbH & co.

KG. For makers of these implants, an upgrade to the CP810 possibility thus. This sound processor is now fifth Generation, which is patient with a cochlear nucleus 24 implant available.” The software version cochlear custom sound Suite 3.2 is based on the presented innovations. The user interface remained largely unchanged in the structure, but the design was modernized and expanded the functionality. You have the possibility to select advanced parameters for the MP3000 strategy now among other things. This strategy is transmitted on one energy-saving compressed and on the other hand better the overtones of language and music due to the changing selection of frequency bands. Usability dynamic FM receiver, CR110 optimized remote for use another innovation at the nucleus 5 system version 3: through a development of chip electronics of the sound processor is now possible to use dynamic FM receiver as the Phonak MLxi. In cooperation with the company Phonak, cochlear has developed even a dynamic receiver, fits seamlessly into the design of the CP810. This receiver with the name ML14i will be available is expected in the first half of 2011.

Nexans Automation Cables

New brand name is synonymous with lines, the highest Dynamics meet Nuremberg, November 24, 2009 on the occasion of the trade fair SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2009 in Nuremberg Nexans has presented its new brand MOTIONLINE. The name expresses the dynamic properties of the control and power lines offered by Nexans automation. Include control cables, bus cables and wires for the power supply as well as, for example, hybrid cables, the energy and signal wires combined in one cable. MOTIONLINE is rounded off by a rich range of services. The solutions are suitable for use in drag chains, machining centers or industrial robots, sensor connection, and for many more applications, where high dynamic performance. Dynamically indefinitely, even under difficult conditions of automation applications represent a special challenge: lines to the data and signal transmission, or the power supply even under extreme dynamic stress make sure. So convincing product properties not only on the data sheet, but also in practice, Nexans maintains both the cooperation with manufacturers of automation systems, as well as with cable direct. The result: tailor-made lines for example for tool machines, handling systems, special machines and robots.

MOTIONLINE lines are reliable, inexpensive, and meet all major international safety standards such as ANSI (United States), CCC (China), VDE (Germany), CSA (Canada) and UL global. Automation Application Center is key to success before of the launch a new line of automation in the in-house automation must be Application Center (AAC), a part of the Nexans Research Center, prove. In this Centre industry’s unique cable exposed to dynamic loads, which correspond to the actual operating conditions. This ensures that the pipes have the of bending necessary for the purpose, tensile and Rotary strength and their electrical properties keep in operation over the years. New sheath material as an example of innovation-intensive research and development work in the Nexans Research Center serves product improvements or enables completely new properties.

Identification Technology

UHF technology for RFID media for personal identification and in the Auto-ID sector ultimately should depend on all of our needs and technology meet the people. Always interesting to make various reviews and comparisons. Not unfounded anyway, quite high expectations for the UHF technology in the RFID field, which also always again be reformulated. In the identification industry in general look they currently so heavily on logistics in the sense of warehousing and goods control and what medium is possible in the long term in the trade at the article level. Here is a market that can well be occupied by UHF in width. To do that, turns out contactless solutions of the past, that standardization is necessary. Terms such as EPC Gen2, not expert enough to know that he has arrived in the world of products. Specially textiles some interesting things are been pushed on in the last year.

In addition to the “boring” economic considerations there are physical properties in can decide whether the use fits a technology to the problem to be solved and if there is a use case. UHF is just better suited for bridging large distances such as in shipping gates. The pallet identification projects exist at the moment but really high frequency such as UHF solutions side by side. When pilots turned out but also, that several “new” tag simply still too sensitive and to build a more complex antenna configuration for HF prefer. But the good handling of metal and an improved anti-collision but much more use cases for UHF are open, develop.

A quantitative comparison of UHF/RF in the entire market not at the moment in my opinion hardly, also helps in growth rates. Because they are just the projects in the area of ticketing and e-passport, which even longer contribute to large revenues in the HF range and continue to reset. Here, there was a significant increase in the last 2 to 3 years. Many more applications are accessible by HF and just work so that the sales here even could be increased fivefold in the 3-year period. It is already strong and happy the man who would like to see RFID as a whole pushed especially. Somehow fits the current situation for especially UHF but in the theoretical model, because after the hype a consolidation phase should come soon for the first time before device into normal waters, which creates a permanent market and then later step can expand it, also about Auto-ID also. Some even say, you will never reach the market penetration as the traditional RF technologies. Would there be careful and comparing not apples with pears. Without then here offer a vast area fear to take up, tracking, tagging, or certificates of authenticity in our consumerist world. Networking objects of everyday needs required Identmerkmale (vilified by the term “Internet of things”), which should also be thanks to RFID labelling. All mass applications where potentially UHF participate in May and is to a large extent. More research to be an alternative in the vicinity, and these different markets radiate yes even against each other. Correctly is sure that on security-related proximity solutions such as in the area of smart card there is a wide and stable basis for HF, but also companies should address more UHF technology. One must be a prophet so if you want to claim that both RFID technologies will have a longer existence side by side and a topic so, what one well and can move like a year to some omissions.
