Automated Software Enables CISPR-Compliant Real-Time Emission Measurements

first_imgThe new TDEMI EMI Receiver Family from Gauss Instruments’ provides a huge fully CISPR compliant real-time bandwidth that speeds up measurements and reduces the measurement uncertainty significantly – both at the same time. By using Gauss’ full automation software suite EMI64k, the test procedures can be configured according to the CISPR 16-2-3 standard for the FFT-based measuring instruments. In comparison to the previously done pre-scan and final measurement strategy, the overall test quality can be significantly increased whereas the testing times are reduced by orders of magnitudes.In the past, to reduce test times a pre and final scan test procedure was usually conducted. During the pre-scan procedure, which is just a quick overview measurement by the way, the critical frequencies with maximum emissions are going to be identified. Afterwards detecting these critical frequencies the final measurement is carried out then in the single frequency mode with much longer dwell times now to achieve a more accurate result.Now, Gauss Instruments has introduced a novel real-time scanning feature for their TDEMI X test receiver series providing several Gigahertz of real-time bandwidth (Option QCDSP-UG, UFSPA-UG). Thus the final maximization can be performed at all frequencies simultaneously in just one step. By using the newly designed very powerful hardware module, such measurements across several GHz can be performed in the real-time spectrum analyzer mode. For example in the frequency range from 1 GHz to 18 GHz all frequency points can be directly measured with a very high resolution in time and the result can be maximized instantaneously.Over the entire frequency range the results are displayed in real-time. The detectors peak, average, and RMS are available in this mode. Further the video bandwidths, which are required according to the standards, can be applied. Of course all the measurements according to the standards CISPR 16-1-1, MIL 461, DO 160 as well as many other national and international standards are fully covered.For the very first time, a typical emission measurement in the range of 1 GHz up to 18 GHz the full frequency range is scanned in real-time now by testing with the TDEMI X test receiver of Gauss. The DUT is rotated in just one continuous movement and the angular position as well as the maximum level of emission is recorded. All the requirements of the standards CISPR 16-2-3 as well as the ANSI and FCC standards are fulfilled by the TDEMI X receiver.This allows making EMC testing more sustainable. For example, it is possible to create an entire database and documentation with radiation patterns, test procedures, and casing construction but also many more information. New product developments and designs can be tested right from the beginning to make sure all the required limits are fulfilled. This saves time and money in development and design process but also in the final market certification process. Of course the EMI64k is not limited only to CISPR applications, but also measurements according to FCC and ANSI or MIL-461 and DO-160 standards are also applicable as well. An overview is shown in the figure (Fig B) given as a screenshot of the graphical user interface.The TDEMI receiver families provide the perfect match for all kind of tests and applications. Starting from pre-compliance, ultra compact and mobile receives up to high-end EMI test solutions with up to 685 MHz real-time bandwidth, 40 GHz real-time scanning as well as the lowest noise floor available in the receiver and real-time analyzer market.Due to the modular architecture of their TDEMI EMI receiver as well as the automation software suite EMI64k, Gauss Instruments provide an optimum and cost effective software solution tailored to user requirements. Also upgrades to fulfill extended or new upcoming requirements are possible any time later on.last_img read more

Leafs get some payback to start KIJHL season; off to Okanagan for two-game road swing

first_imgThe Nelson Leafs got some payback, albeit a season later, when the Green and White picked up two points in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League standings after the Kelowna Chiefs were caught using an ineligible person on opening day of the current campaign.The Chiefs were penalized two points for having an ineligible trainer on the roster and improving Nelson’s record to 3-1 record to start the season.“(Kelowna) played a someone not approved by Hockey Canada Registry,” KIJHL president Bill Ohlhausen told The Nelson Daily Friday.“And they (Kelowna) lost points.”The Chiefs opened the season by scoring a 3-0 shutout on the score sheet over the Leafs.Kelowna iced the same lineup the next night, but lost 3-2 to the Nitehawks in Beaver Valley.Leaf brass know full well what the Chiefs are going through after coach and GM Dave McLellan was suspended for a month last season for using an ineligible player for the nine games.Nelson also had eight points stripped from the season record. It was the second time during the season the Leafs were penalized for using an ineligible player.However, Ohlhausen said there would be no suspensions of coaches or fines to the teams this season after Hockey Canada insisted the KIJHL revert to its disciplinary rules.“(Hockey Canada) wanted us to return to their rule,” Ohlhausen explained.“If a teams uses an ineligible player, they lose the points regardless of the score.”Ohlhausen is hopeful news of Kelowna’s demise will send ripple affects through the league and its coaches and manager.“I hope so,” Ohlhausen said before heading off to the Eddie Mountain Division to take in games in Golden and Fernie this weekend.“I don’t like taking points away from the teams because it’s not the kids making the mistakes, it’s the team officials. The players don’t know who is listed on the roster, only coaches and manager know that.”The extra two points moves Nelson to within two points of division leading Beaver Valley and Castlegar — both tied for top spot in the Neil Murdoch Division with eight points.Nelson travels to the Okanagan this weekend with stops Friday in Princeton, against the Posse, and Saturday, in Osoyoos, against the Coyotes.Both teams are starting the season slow with Princeton sporting a 3-2 record in five games and Osoyoos batting .500 with a 1-1-0-0-1 mark.BLUELINES: There’s not much to report on the player from for Nelson. Leaf brass has invited a few new players into camp, but did not make any changes to the roster last week. . . . Forward Jordan Davie leads Nelson in scoring with four goals. Davie is tied with Brendan Smith in points, each with four. . . . Leaf netminder Joseph Barton leads the goaltenders with two wins in two games. . . . Next home game for Nelson is Friday, October 2 when Beaver Valley Nitehawks invade the NDCC Arena. Game time is 7 p.m. . . . The Hawks host Columbia Valley Friday before traveling to Castlegar Sunday at 1 p.m. for a Murdoch Showdown against the Rebels. Grand Forks host Kelowna Saturday before travelling to Spokane to face the Braves Sunday.last_img read more

Tit for tat politics

first_imgDear Editor,How do the politicians in APNU/AFC defend the indefensible? Why seek to seize assets legitimately owned in some cases or controlled by the PPP/C or their representatives or supporters? When these assets amount to a drop in the ocean compared to the other resources and assets available for ownership, control and management by APNU/AFC in the ocean of Guyana. ExxonMobil’s findings included. These actions were not part of the platform that APNU/AFC promised pre-election, yet here we are acting as if we are two nations with two destinies. Why do our politicians have to inflict deep and unnecessary divisions amongst the Guyanese people? Does this not take us backwards to intense hatred and an urge to rebel against a fairly elected coalition Government?The PPP/C was duly elected and used their tenure of office to not only contribute to the development of Guyana, providing a period of economic growth never seen in Guyana’s history; even as the hierarchy of the party and major supporters used the government structure to enrich themselves, politically speaking there is nothing unusual about their conduct.Machiavelli noted that “A ruler never lacks legitimate reasons to break his promise” and indeed the APNU/AFC can find multiple legitimate reasons to seize Red House from PPP/C, but is this action good of Guyana – with the resulting animus, vendetta mentality, and pillarizing of racism; this is clearly not the route to take.As much as I supported APNU/AFC pre-election, my groundings with brothers and supporters of PPP/C has grown post-elections, as acts of folly and hypocrisy have obtained far too frequently from the Coalition. It is always easier to meet with the Opposition than those who carry the titles. One of the great mistakes of the populace is to judge politicians by their intentions rather than their results – with apologies to Milton Friedman.Invariably in politics, friends become pawns, mere creatures to manipulate and use whenever convenient. Politicians tend to have interests only and those who occupy the halls of power – often believe the titles they carry represent a divine right to rule with hubris, insolence, arrogance and the gravy of egotism. Of course, there is a timeline to all this pomposity…Now here we are in 2017 – with Red House under threat of seizure; Properties in Sparendaam mostly owned by PPP/C members are being targeted for re-pricing; sugar estates being unjustifiably placed on the chopping block for auction or divestment; leadership in the National Assembly seemingly hell-bent on suspending an attorney over tablets or tattle; skilled technocrats fleeing from Guyana; the NICIL no-case; these backward-looking stratagems are so damaging to the Guyanese psyche that one sees only self-destruction ahead.We are damning our country to failure. The party in power should be seeking with all hands-on deck to find ways to continue the development of Guyana and avoid the futile, backward, and dangerous practice of focusing on the rear-view mirror, while trying to go forward. Doing so will only lead to more divisions, divisiveness and vendettas when the other party inevitably takes power. Those in power tend to think it will last forever or deceive themselves into believing it will be so; history has exposed this fallacy. Even the blemished Trump will not prosecute or persecute Mrs Clinton. Let bygones be bygones… let sleeping dogs lie… let all things past, pass… Why spend much needed resources, energy and human capital to undo our heritage, instead we should work to replicate, increase, improve and perfect numerous assets in other locations, using the vast resources available for development in the ocean of Guyana.“Nothing can destroy a government more quickly than its failure to observe its own laws, or worse, its disregard of the charter of its own existence” – US Supreme Court Justice Tom C Clark.Sincerely,Nigel Hindslast_img read more

Wrangler teaches reptile safety

first_imgBut she’d rather not do that, she said. “They have just as much right being out here as we do,” she said. “We talk about how terrible they are, but they do a service to nature. I don’t know how much of a service we do.” In his speech to a few dozen visitors to the nature center Saturday, Heermann explained that snakes usually live out their lives within 50 yards of their birth place. Female rattlers give birth to 15-35 offspring, so if one rattler is found in a backyard there will usually be more nearby, Heermann said. A backyard swimming pool can attract a rattler because the snakes seek water, and they are good swimmers. Heermann cautioned that everyone should be on the lookout for rattlers and keep a safe distance from them. A rattlesnake will never chase after someone, he said. Heermann used two rattlesnakes in his demonstration. One was a fat, gentle snake that was used to being handled and is fed only dead animals. The other one, a more recent acquisition for Heermann, rattled violently and coiled up, ready to strike. “I guess rattlesnakes are like some people,” Heermann said. “Some of them are not so nice.” [email protected] (661) 257-5253 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! NEWHALL – With a rattlesnake curling toward him at the end of a hand-held pole, Hugo Heermann held the deadly creature’s tail and explained its behavior to a crowd of onlookers. The poisonous snake was just trying to get a good whiff of his hand, Heermann told visitors to the New Leash on Life Animal Rescue on Saturday. “He’s not being aggressive at all; he’s just trying to see what his surroundings are,” said Heermann, a veteran snake handler who has never been bitten by a rattler. Making his case that they, too, can avoid getting bitten – even in a place full of rattlesnakes like the Santa Clarita Valley – Heermann encouraged listeners to avoid panicking around any rattlesnakes they might encounter. He let a couple of volunteers use the pole to pick up rattlesnakes from the tile floor of the rescue center. Heermann also talked about the snake rescues he performs, picking up the reptiles from backyards and releasing them back into the wild. Santa Clarita residents can expect rattlesnakes to be slithering all over the place in the coming months as drought-like conditions force the reptiles to venture farther for water, Heermann said. Santa Clarita resident Carol Riggins, a dog trainer, said she has already killed five rattlesnakes so far this year. Riggins said she creeps up on rattlers with a shovel and chops off their heads. last_img read more

H-A-P-P-Y? New survey wants to know how happy we are in Donegal

first_imgHow happy are we in Donegal? That’s the question that a new survey being undertaken by Donegal County Council’s Research and Policy Unit is trying to answer.This survey, known as the Donegal Happiness Survey is being undertaken on behalf of the Donegal Local Community Development Committee (LCDC).They want to find out how residents in County Donegal rate their quality of life, their satisfaction levels with existing services, their links to their surrounding community and their expectations for their futures. Speaking this week, Cllr. Martin McDermott Chair of the Donegal Local Community Development Committee said that he is hoping that as many people as possible will take part in this survey.“We are keen to hear from all parts of Donegal and from people of different ages, backgrounds and interests about what is important to them and how they would rate their quality of life in Donegal” said Cllr. McDermott.Members of Cara House Letterkenny with Susan McCauley and Martin McBride from Donegal Local Development Committee getting ready for the Donegal Happiness Survey.He added “this survey will be carried out on an annual basis and it will provide an important benchmark on the quality of life that currently exists across different rural and urban locations in the county. The findings will help us inform future plans and policies of the Donegal LCDC and all the agencies and partner organisations involved with the committee”.Donegal LCDC is made up of elected members, council officials, representatives from state agencies, private and community & voluntary sector and is responsible for the 6 year Local Economic and Community Plan and coordinating local and community development activity in Donegal. This survey will be live from Monday 22 to Sunday 28 October, 2018 and can be completed online at or can also be filled out in written form with questionnaires available at a number of outlets around the county including Council offices, Libraries and Community Centres.#HappinessSurveyDonegalH-A-P-P-Y?
