Distribution Inc.'s Powerwave Bus System is a flexible overhead power
distribution system that minimizes the costs and coordination for computer
server adds and changes in a data center or commercial environment. All systems
are available with PDI's patented Branch Circuit Monitoring System (BCMS) that
gathers and reports loads at the branch circuit level for all tap off boxes to
the building management system via Modbus RTU.
Powerwave Bus System was designed specifically for data center applications.
PDI has subjected this product to the rigors of the UL / ETL testing. The
Powerwave system also offers communications through the BCMS intelligent
monitoring systems which allows for instantaneous reporting and management of a
myriad of power quality parameters,
including amperage, voltage, power factor, and kWH.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
