The annual SPS IPC Drives show in Germany is probably the world’s largest exhibition dedicated to

The annual SPS IPC Drives show in Germany is probably the world’s largest exhibition dedicated to developments in automation. We look at some of the highlights from the most recent event, held last November. The SPS IPC Drives show which took place last November in Nuremberg, Germany, was the last ever with that name. When the exhibition returns later this year, marking its 30th anniversary, it will be known simply as SPS. While the original name was derived from the German equivalent of PLC, SPS will in future stand for Smart Production Solutions. The organisers argue that a “hardware-centric” name such as SPS IPC Drives “no longer reflects the true core of current and future automation technology” which is shifting to software-based function blocks distributed across a wide range of hardware components. The final event under the old name attracted 1,630 exhibitors and 65,700 visitors to Nuremberg. There were 30 fewer exhibitors and 4,564 fewer visitors than the record numbers achieved at the 2017 show – perhaps reflecting the downturn in the German manufacturing sector. One of the dominant themes at the 2018 event was TSN (Time Sensitive Networking). Suppliers were falling ove...

Isolating CBD Oil from Cannabis via Short-Path Distillation

Cannabidiol is of particular interest in the medical community today, with many studies showing its efficacy in the treatment of epilepsy. A broad spectrum of pre-clinical research in other fields further suggests that CBD has therapeutic potential for many other conditions and health complaints. As public and medical interest in the compound increases, so does the need for an effective method of isolating it. In this article, we examine methods for extracting and isolating CBD from cannabis plants and discuss the important role of short path distillation in obtaining high purity CBD. Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is one of many cannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis plant. The compound has found recent popularity after several studies have indicated its potential for the treatment of numerous medical conditions. CBD’s potential to treat epilepsy is of particular interest, but recent evidence suggests it may exhibit useful analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipsychotic effects suitable for the treatment of a broad range of conditions. In 2018, the World Health Organisation published a critical review of cannabidiol. The review noted that CBD has been demonstrated as ...

Peloton, Mirror, Tonal: What you get for the price of a smart home gym

It is perhaps not recommended that you gift your selfie-videoing wife a Peloton for Christmas, if she seems to be scared of such a gift. (Yes, this is a reference to the maligned recent bike ad that drove down Peloton shares.) But if you can afford pricey boutique fitness classes such as Orangetheory and Soul Cycle, it actually could be a good idea to invest inhigh-tech home gym equipment for your exercise-enthused family this holiday season.  I crunched some numbers. If you go to a boutique gym three times a week (because everyone thinks they will go that much when pricing out subscriptions) for three years, it would cost you as much – or more – than a smart home gym. Consider: Soul Cycle, the popular indoor cycling class, would set you back around $10,500 over three years. Barry’s Bootcamp, approximately $11,250. At treadmill fitness studio Mile High run club, that would be more than $6,500. For Orangetheory, that’s roughly $5,600, and yoga studio Y7 could be close to $5,400, depending on which location you frequent. And if you consider that home gyms don’t require parking, transportation, locker room changes and malodor (other than your own), the scary price...

High-wattage USB-C batteries can keep your laptop charged on the go

Portable batteries have become more stylish, cheaper, smaller, and faster at charging your tech. More improvements are on the way, thanks to gallium nitride (GaN), a more space- and energy-efficient alternative to silicon that can already be found in a few wall chargers. Nice as these advancements are, they mostly impact devices with small batteries. Wall chargers aren’t much help if you’re on the go. As more laptops and other high-powered devices adopt USB-C and move away from proprietary charging plugs, there’s an opportunity for big, powerful batteries that can augment your power adapters, and ideally, let you charge multiple devices at the same time. And now, a number of options are hitting the market aimed squarely at doing just that. We have tested a few models that are available now, as well as some that are coming out soon. The list includes Zendure’s SuperTank, Sanho’s HyperJuice, and J-Go Tech’s Tanker Elite and Tanker Xtreme. They all have a few things in common: they aren’t small or lightweight, so your bag will gain more than a few ounces if you stick one inside. Each of these batteries has USB-C Power Delivery ports capable of delivering at least 65W of power (and ...

Your computer is an important energy consumer in your home. Can you save energy when using

Your computer is an important energy consumer in your home. Can you save energy when using it? This article offers a few tips. You only know how much electricity you use if you have a way to measure it. And only if you measure it can you minimize its use. A voltmeter gives you this ability. You can buy one for only $25 US at Amazon. You plug the voltmeter into the wall socket, then plug the device you want to measure into the voltmeter. To measure how much electricity all your computer equipment uses, plug it all into a power strip, and plug the power strip into the voltmeter. If you’re like me, when you get your new voltmeter you’ll run around the house and measure the power consumption of everything in sight. You’ll quickly find ways to minimize your use of electricity, powering off some appliances and using others less. With your computer you’ll discover: It’s tough to generalize about computer power consumption because it varies so widely. (That’s why you bought the voltmeter!) Most desktop computer systems consume between 70 and 200 watts while in use, while laptops often burn between 15 and 60 watts. Both figures include typical LCD displays. View this power consumption ch...
