Out of MFP

• Maximize Faxing – Fax files directly to desktops on your network to improve productivity and enhance your ability to collaborate with colleagues on office projects. Desktop faxing also eliminates the need to produce a paper copy of a file or document just to run it through the fax machine to send it to someone outside your office. This saves valuable time and reduces paper waste.

• App it Up – Some MFPs now come equipped with cloud connectivity and app capabilities, allowing you to do a variety of things. Connect to your Google account or upload a file to your customer relationship management system by using simple, user-friendly apps at the MFP.

• Incorporate Vertical-specific Solutions – Many MFPs allow users to customize and enhance their devices for their specific industry. Solutions for education, healthcare, legal, government offices, and many more are available, helping to enhance security safeguards while controlling costs. For example, advanced education software allows teachers to print bubble sheet tests on demand and grade the exams in minutes. And highly secure healthcare software allows doctors to print prescriptions with anti-copy and anti-counterfeit features.

Few businesses have taken the necessary steps to ensure that their multifunction devices are optimized to work within their specific print and document environment. But, your MFP is more than a copier and printer. Learning more about how to maximize your MFPs functions and streamline your business processes will pay considerable dividends.

Wireless Barcode Scanners

Bluetooth Barcode Scanner – A bluetooth scanner is wireless again, but this time, it transmits scanned data back to a receiving cradle via bluetooth. The cradle is usually plugged into a host or P.C. Bluetooth scanners can also be paired with a laptops, tablets or smart phones.

Bluetooth scanners do vary in robustness, size and features. Some bluetooth barcode scanners can also store scanned data as well, giving it the functionality of a memory scanner as well.

APPLICATIONS – Point of sale, Inventory management, event management. Applications where you need mobility and not restricted by the length of cable that comes with a tethered scanner.

PDA Barcode Scanners (Batch) – A batch PDA Scanner is also wireless. However they have much more functionality than just a wireless barcode scanner. As mentioned earlier, wireless scanners can only capture the barcode #. Where a PDA scanner can capture the barcode # plus the quantity plus location ID # and much more.

A PDA barcode scanner that is batch, can only store the data within its memory. After the scanning is completed, you upload it back into excel, notepad or send back to an application via a cradle or direct cable.

APPLICATIONS – Stocktaking, asset management, event management. Basically any application where you need to capture multiple fields of information and that it’s not mission critical that the information collected, needs to be live and query a database.

PDA Barcode ScannersWi-Fi/3G – The last type of wireless PDA scanner is the type that has communications. Similar to the batch PDA scanners except they have the ability to communicate to a database live. Within warehousing and many applications within the four walls, PDA barcode scanners are very popular and communicate via Wi-Fi.

Outside the four walls, many wireless PDA scanners are communicating and using the cellular network via 3G.

APPLICATIONS – Warehousing, Inventory Control, Field Service, Logistics, Event Management. Any application where its mission critical that all information is live and querying a database is live for possible information coming back to the user.

About Print Management Solutions

Home printer just won’t cut it. It is not manufactured to handle high volumes of print runs. Keep in mind that a student or person who uses a printer at home only uses it occasionally. So to them, it is sufficient and appears to last long. For you that run a business such a printer won’t last long because it cannot cope with printing everyday throughout the year. It probably can’t hold a lot of paper anyway.

For a business, it is necessary to find a printer that can handle high print volumes and that is durable. Also, it is ideal to select a printer that has multi-functionality. A printer that can print, copy, scan and, possibly, fax is very useful to a business. We live in a modern age so a fax is probably not necessary but if you tend to receive and send documents daily, you will require a document scanner. You need to be able to quickly scan a document to your laptop so that you can email it. The same is applicable in the opposite sense, when you receive a document, you should be able to easily send it to print. While we’re on the modern age topic, everything is wireless in this era. If you are on the move and don’t tend to sit in one office all the time, for example perhaps you need to meet a client in the boardroom, then a wireless print management solution is an option. You need access to your printer from anywhere in your office building. If this is important to you, then it is advisable to select a printer that has WIFI capability.

The right printer for your business will be one that fits your needs. Work out beforehand how often you print, if you scan documents regularly, and how many documents you copy daily. Also consider if you send faxes often or if you scan and email documents instead. This will allow you to be informed when you are looking for a printer then you can zone in to the print management solution that offers the applications you need.

Cooling Fan Covers

Firstly, it is important to note that these fan covers can prevent damage to the fan itself. In an area that is unattended – or on the contrary is very busy – it is possible for fans to get damaged if they are left without any kind of protection. This can include certain items accidentally striking the fan when it is or is not operational.

If a fan were to become damaged, this could have negative consequences for the equipment that it is cooling and could result in costly replacements. Although fans are often made from sturdy materials, this is not always sufficient to mean that they will not break or become damaged to the point of less efficiency.

It is also important to note that the lack of a cover for your cooling fans for your electronics cabinet or other equipment can mean that damage is also more likely to occur to the electronics themselves. Although a fan can provide sufficient protection to a certain extent – especially if the fan is in operation – its efficiency as a barrier to the electronics is doubled by a fan cover.

Many fan covers take the form of aluminium spirals or plastic grids, and stop anything from striking the fan. This will therefore add an extra level of protection to all your electronics equipment too, safeguarding your expensive investments from damage.

In addition to providing protection for your equipment, another major advantage of covers for cooling fans for your electronics cabinet is that it can stop any accidents involving any other office equipment or workers.

Wires can easily become trapped in fans and therefore damaged, which can result in various severe consequences such as electrical fire or even electrocution. Covers will stop wires from being able to enter fans easily – or at all – therefore drastically reducing the risk. Indeed, installing these items can be a very reasonable precaution to take.

The covers will also stop people from injuring themselves too, as fans can all too easily hurt fingers that are touching the electronic equipment in question, Again, this can be a very reasonable step to take for any company or business owner looking to protect the health and safety of their staff.

Finally, another advantage of these fan covers is that they can be a very inexpensive insurance policy for the safety of both your electronic equipment and your staff. Many fans cover are available in bulk for very affordable prices, the cost of which far outweighs the cost of investing in new electronic equipment should it get damaged by accidents or by overheating.

These are just some of the reasons why covers for cooling fans for your electronics cabinet can be extremely beneficial. If you are considering investing in these items, it is strongly recommended to seek out a reputable supplier who will be able to advise you on the right product for your needs.

From covers for fan tray assemblies to large fan guards for large items of equipment, there is something available on the market to meet each and every need and requirement.

USB Type 3 Cable

It is much faster

The latest USB type C cable has the ability to operate at a very fast rate and therefore charge up external devices like smart phones or e-readers quickly. The fastest speed rates are achieved when the USB-C and USB 3.1 sockets are able to work in combination. A major reason for this is the ability to push up to 100W of power compared to the earlier standards that were limited to about 10W. A further benefit of the improved speed is the ability to complete file transfers from an external hard drive more quickly.

Greater versatility

The USB type C cable is extremely versatile and practical in many different situations. There is no need to use different plug and cable sizes for device like the laptop, smart phone or printer. Plus, it has the ability to take on several roles and complete multiple jobs at once. For instance, it has the ability to transfer data and charge a device at the same time. Other practical uses include the ability to hook up a laptop to an external screen.

A great plus of this connector having multiple functions is less need for multiple sockets on the laptop, which makes it possible to continue to build to lightweight and slim devices.

Information od CD Duplication

CD Duplication is the process of producing a copy of a CD master disc by “burning” audio or data information onto a blank CD Recordable disc (CD-R) using a laser. Although digital audio formats have become increasingly popular over the last decade the CD still holds more than half of the market share with regards to the number of audio albums sold.

Businesses offering a CD duplication service use duplication towers to produce many copies from a master CD. These duplication towers range in size from a unit holding 3 optical drives, similar to the unit found in a desktop PC, to much larger towers holding 4 or even 5 banks of 10 drives. Larger scale businesses that regularly carry out duplication for batches of 1000 or more CDs will have a suite containing many of these larger duplication towers connected in a daisy chain fashion using a firewire or high speed USB connection. Whatever the size of the suite, all of the drives will be connected to a central controlling master drive. The CD master containing the information to be copied onto all of the blank CDRs is placed into this master drive.

Obviously, when producing a batch of 1,000 or more CDs, the more towers there are available the faster the job can be completed. To aid with the speed of the process, a large scale operation will use an automated system for loading and unloading drives. Each tower will have 2 spindles located next to it. One spindle contains the blank CDRs waiting to be loaded into the towers and the other will be used to place the finished discs on as the burning process is completed. Initially all the tower drives will have their trays extended ready to receive a blank disc. An automated robotic arm will then lift the blank discs from the waiting spindle, using a rubber suction cup system to avoid potential damage to the disc top surface if it has been printed, and then load the discs into their trays.

Once the burning process is completed the drive trays open and the discs are removed, placed onto the completed disc spindle and are then replaced with fresh blank discs. The tower drives are all loaded and unloaded simultaneously by the automated system; a process that would take far longer to carry out by hand and which would be prone to potential human error as each disc would have to be unloaded and replaced individually. If the suite contains a hundred or more drives manual loading would be completely impractical not to mention tedious!

CD duplication suites require relatively little maintenance. There will be a dust extraction system in place which reduces the amount of dust floating around in the air and thus eliminating any risk of dust interfering with the process. The dust free atmosphere also ensures that the electronic systems last longer as most electronic failures happen due to heat build-up due to dust. Periodically, the optical drives will need to be replaced as the laser power output drops with age. This is important as a disc burnt with an ineffective laser may have a reduced readable life.

Audio CDs are created using the “Track at Once” recording mode which burns each track individually separated by a short gap, usually about 2 seconds.

Producing a Master – When considering mass duplication of audio CDs it is important to bear in mind that the end result will only ever be as good as the content of the master CD. Very often the artist will probably have spent many hours composing and recording music or spoken word tracks for the project and so it will be especially important to plan for and end up with the best possible master that project budget and time constraints will allow. It goes without question that the master CD needs to be a high quality disc.

Industrial Touch Panel

• Easy interface – With the absence of buttons and switches, there is a larger area for interface design. When setting up the programs or the software for the panel, people have a wider space and thus allowing people to use and view several widgets on a single screen.

• Fast sensing abilities – When a person uses the keyboard or the mouse to use the varied functions of the computer, it takes time for the computer to receive the command and act upon it. While a touch panel receives the commands faster with just a single touch.

• Resistant to natural conditions – Most industrial panels are exposed to the public where there are times people put in higher physical effort to operate the device or let the panel get exposed to weather conditions; it is at these times that the panels are resistive to such external changes. They are covered with necessary protection to make it resistant to external force.

• Cost effective – With most computer technologies opting for touch panels, it has become cheaper to manufacture them as compared to computers with keyboards and other components. It is cheap to purchase, install as well as saves up on money for the long term as it lasts longer that the other monitors.

Electronic Recycling

There will be a cleaner environment. Most electronic waste is being dumped or sent to landfills, which are becoming scarcer. Doing this occupies a lot of space and spreads harmful toxins by degrading the ground water. This makes a dangerous situation for humans, animals, and plant life. When you recycle your electronics, it saves space in your landfills and helps to prevent other areas of the land from becoming dumping grounds. Recycling will also prevent the toxins from causing environmental pollution.

There are also the health benefits of electronic recycling. Electronic products are manufactured from different types of gases and plastics along with harmful elements like lead. When people and businesses just dump their electronics these chemicals are released into the air and the earth. These chemicals not only pose a threat to the health of the people who dump the electronics but also to others who live near the dumping grounds and landfill.

Many of the electronics, especially computer hardware, has many things that can be re-utilized and some of them do not require any processing. Some big companies even have their own recycling facilities where all of the reusable material is put to good use after it is sorted out and the reset is disposed of properly. Apple is one of those big companies that do this. By doing this, the recycled parts that were taken out do not have to be manufactured again saving energy and resources to make a new part.

One of the best benefits of electronic recycling is that if these products are recycled companies will not have to manufacture most of the components in electronics from scratch. The downside of this is that there could be the loss of some jobs. By recycling electronics the production costs will be reduced making electronics more affordable to everyone. Eventually this will help the economy.
