The AV-D30 Dynamic
Mounting Arm provides integrated positioning technology that enables the arm to
function efficiently in applications needing a stable solution (i.e.,
transportation, industrial machinery, medical touch screens).The positioning
features full tilt, swivel and swing out adjustments, and the arm can withstand
touch forces, vibration and heavy loading. Precisely controlled operating
efforts in the joints mean the display will not drift. It holds in every
position, stays where the operator puts it and does not require user tightening
or loosening for adjustment. The AV-D30 also features integrated wire
management covers that eliminate the cumbersome threading process. The
AV arm folds within 50 mm of the wall
and uses minimal space in a stored position, which provides design engineers
with great flexibility. Its compact size makes it ideal for any area where
space is at a premium. The AV-D30 is compliant with the VESA standard for 12 to
23 inch monitors, comes fully adjusted for minimal installation time and can be
customized to a user's precise operating effort. Its range of swivel motion can
be restricted to prevent collision with nearby objects or to restrict viewing
locations, and its long cycle life ensures reliability and reduced maintenance
costs. The integrated positioning technology of the AV-D30 is unique and
enables the arm to function in locations where competing mounts simply would
not work. Its smooth, fluid operation is user intuitive with a "grab and move"
operation. The display will not drift and easily withstands operators' hands,
intense vibration and dynamic loading. The AV-D30 can be easily repositioned
without tightening or loosening. Without the need for adjustment, maintenance
or service, the AV-D30 addresses user dissatisfaction with underperforming
mounts on the market.
During a teardown of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show in Schaumburg, Ill., an engineer showed this "inflammatory" video about the dangers of maliciously mishandling lithium-ion batteries.
The Window Watcher stops the burglar before he does damage or enters the house. House alarm service companies set off alarms and call the service only after the burglar has damaged and entered the house.
