Series Card Key Switch from WattStopper
turns electrical circuits on or off when a card key or HS-FOB Key Fob is
inserted or removed from its slot. More code compliant than a simple master
wall switch, the HS Card Key Switch ensures that lights are off when the room
is vacant. The attractive, low profile switch features a backlit card key slot
to provide visibility in darkened rooms and a 30-second egress time delay.
Plus, the HS Series Card Key Switch is available in five decorator colors and one,
two or three gang switch plate covers.
The HS-100 is a low voltage unit with a normally open and
normally closed isolated relay, allowing it to interface with third-party
energy and lighting management control systems. The HS-150 is a line voltage unit
that serves as a master switch for a single guest room circuit. Both can use
the same card key that unlocks the door and are compliant with current
requirements in both the IECC and ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
