Larson Electronics Introduces New Class 1 & 2 Division 1 & 2 LED Portable Tank Light
January 26, 2015
Larson Electronics has reported the release of an explosion proof LED tank light mounted to a portable wheelbarrow cart. According to a release from the Company, the EPL-16C-150LED-RT-3EX is rated Class 1 & 2 Division 1 & 2 and is a cart mounted explosion proof LED light that provides 10,000 square feet of work area coverage while producing 12,000 lumens of light from 150 watts. This portable LED cart light has a removable light head measuring 16" wide by 14" tall which allows the unit to fit through standard sized manholes or entry passages commonly found in the petrochemical and marine industries. It comes with a 3' extension pole, allowing operators to raise the height of the light when desired. This removable extension allows the unit to become a compact solution for storage and transporting.

Clocking energy-transfer rates in quantum dots
January 24, 2015
Massachusetts Institute of Technology has issued the following news release: Energy transfer in light-sensitive materials such as quantum dots is of interest for better solar cells, LEDs, and other devices. MIT chemistry graduate student A. Jolene Mork examines how fast energy transfers from one quantum dot to another, a phenomenon known as hopping. Mork is lead author of a Journal of Physical Chemistry paper that analyzed energy transfer in colloidal quantum dots. “It’s not looking at how far can an exciton go within a film; it is how fast does it transfer from one quantum dot to another,” she says. Mork is a fifth-year MIT graduate student in the lab of William A. Tisdale, the Charles and Hilda Roddey Career Development Professor in Chemical Engineering at MIT. A standard formula for calculating the rate of energy transfer for molecules, Förster theory, may be inadequate to explain excitons moving from one quantum dot to another, Mork’s study reveals. “The standard assumption is that it’s center-to-center distance that matters. So we think the edge-to-edge distance may also matter,” Mork says.

Casio Slim XJ-A247
January 22, 2015
The Casio Slim XJ-A247 ($1,209.99) is a lightweight data projector that includes some nifty features, such as a generous 2X zoom and standard Wi-Fi, with the adapter included. It uses Casio's hybrid LED-laser light engine, which has a light source that should last the lifetime of the projector. The XJ-A247 has solid data-image quality, and is a good choice if you don't include much video in your presentations. Design This WXGA (1,280-by-800) DLP projector is rated at 2,500 lumens. Its hybrid light engine produces red with LEDs, blue with lasers, and green by shining the blue laser light on a phosphor. Various optics direct the red, green, and blue light to the DLP chip, and out the front lens. The LED lamp is designed to last up to 20,000 hours, far longer than typical projector bulbs-and unlike most projector lamps, it's mercury-free.

OCO WiFi Cloud Camera
January 22, 2015
Adding round-the-clock video surveillance to your home used to be a costly proposition, but not any longer. Today's Wi-Fi-connected camerasprovide a relatively inexpensive way to monitor your home or business using your smartphone, and with productssuch as the Nest Dropcam Proand iON The Homeoffering cloud storage, it's easier than ever to roll back the clock to watch archived video. The OCO WiFi Cloud Camera($149) is the latest entrant in the growing Wi-Fi cloud camera market, and like the Dropcam and iON offerings it has motion and noise detection abilities. This puck-shaped camera delivers sharp, colorful video, installs in minutes, and offers multiple ways to view live video. That said, it tends to switch over to night vision mode before it actually gets dark, and there's no way to capture video without a cloud subscription.

D-Link Wireless AC Day/Night Camera With Color Night Vision (DCS-2136L)
January 22, 2015
Nearly all of today's wireless home connectedwebcamsuse multiple infrared LEDs to capture night vision video, but most of them only deliver it in black-and-white. Enter the D-Link Wireless AC Day/Night Camera With Color Night Vision (DCS-2136L), a 720p home security camera that uses a single white LED to capture full-color night vision video. At $324.99, this indoor Wi-Fi camera doesn't come cheap, but you get a lot for your money, including the latest wireless technology, onboard storage capabilities, and motion detection recording. However, it doesn't offer cloud-based video storage and its night vision color could use a little more pop. Design and Features The DCS-2136L looks like other D-Link Wi-Fi cameras we've reviewed, including the Day/Night Network Cloud Camera 1150 DCS-933Land the HD Wireless N Day/Night Outdoor Cloud Camera DCS-2330L. It measures 3.7 by 2.3 by 1.7 inches (HWD), and is supported by a round stand with a 2.5-inch mounting arm. The camera attaches to the arm with a ball-joint mechanism that lets you swivel and rotate the camera for optimal coverage.
