What are Smart Poles?

Smart Poles are equipped with either an electronic charging station and a sensor to identify whether parking spaces are vacant or full, an air-quality sensor as well as one that can be used as an emergency contact for stressed citizens, or a WLAN router which provides access to high-speed internet. The Latest Smart Poles are also equipped with a big screen that displays the air quality information and provides drivers with information about available parking spaces, and general information for the public.

Every one of the Smart Pole configurations has been carefully selected to bring greater digitalization, sustainability, and mobility to our streets. For instance, with the growing amount of countries seeking to end fossil-fuelled car sales, for now, however, the Smart Pole’s sensor for air quality is a crucial element in alerting vulnerable citizens about traffic pollution.

Enhancing and Supporting City Services by using Smart Poles

One possible starting point to implement smart city technology is the street lights poles. Light firm Signify has recently revealed the introduction of the BrightSites intelligent poles which makes use of the city’s street light infrastructure to offer important wireless connections including 4G LTE, 5G Wi-Fi LoRa, and Sigfox. With smart poles’ wireless networking capability, BrightSites can support a broad range of IoT applications, while also providing controlled, energy-efficient LED lighting.

Smart poles, including BrightSites, are powered by small-cell base stations located inside the pole. Since they operate within the city’s street lighting infrastructure smart poles enable city planners to increase the urban network’s capacity and coverage at their speed without causing disruption.

What are ESD Flooring and Antistatic Flooring?

In any setting moving people and objects can create constant dangers of electrostatic discharge from a variety of sources. ESD flooring, sometimes called floor coverings for static, are an all-encompassing term that refers to flooring systems and flooring materials that have been designed to be used in ESD-sensitive areas.

Requirements for An ESD Flooring System

  1. A) The flooring system is not able to produce the triboelectric charge
  2. B) The ESD flooring system offers an easy route to the ground to facilitate dispersing the static generated charge.
  3. C) Technical Specification for ESD Flooring to ensure product quality and conformity

Defines ESD flooring: “An ESD flooring system is an outlet for electric static charge (known as BVG or Body Voltage Generator accumulation in a person due to moving across an area) to be discharged to a specified grounded location.” – The PI Industrial

Surfaces with Anti-Static Specifications

Certain types of surfaces such as vinyl floors or concrete can provide anti-static properties if they are placed under proper conditions, making them might be considered to be anti-static flooring. However, untreated floors or even floors with the static coating (see below) are not able to provide controlled dissipation or grounding of triboelectric charge. Thus, the difference in antistatic floors or ESD flooring is important. Insulative materials aren’t considered anti-static.

What’s Antistatic Flooring?

Anti-static flooring minimizes, eliminates, or stops the accumulation in static electric charge. So, ESD flooring systems fit in this category, however, they are not interchangeable. Although some materials help reduce charge accumulation when used as flooring, specific flooring systems that use static control require an electrical connection so that charges can be dispersed safely.



What You Need to Know About Dental Crowns

A dental crown is made of different materials such as cement, resin, ceramics, porcelain and other precious metals, such as gold, copper and other metals. Each material is unique and has its own advantages. This replacement of artificial teeth is used to correct dental anomalies.

A dental crown can be very effective when the health of the patient’s gums is good. This custom dental lid meet the needs of patients. Crowns can be made of different materials in their preparation. The materials commonly used for crowns, range from resin, ceramics, gold and other metals, which makes dental crowns expensive.

How do dental crowns fit?

Dental crown placement is a three-stage process. First, it involves anesthetizing the gums, teeth and surrounding tissue, followed by trimming the selected gear. Trimming dental work done in such a way so that accurate and precise crown fits over the teeth were broken.

Second, the dental impression is taken to where the crown should be made. Using a dental putty impression is taken and sent to a dental laboratory. Until the desired permanent crown is prepared, a temporary crown is made with plastic or metal and cemented on teeth.

Finally, a custom-made crown is made with the desired material and stays on top of the tooth using a dental adhesive. The whole procedure takes a few visits to the dentist. However, recent advances in dental technology have been helping dentists to make their own crowns and fix it in one visit to the dentist.
