New GE White Paper Makes the Case for Upgrading Legacy Power Systems at Telecommunications Central Offices; GE's White Paper Examines Migration Strategy for Switch Mode Rectifiers
September 15, 2014
As today's telecommunications central office operations cope with increasing demand for wireless and 4G bandwidth, engineers face the difficult and costly decision to maintain, upgrade or replace their existing DC power plant systems. A new white paper from GE's Critical Power business (NYSE: GE) provides migration strategies and a total cost of ownership model that help guide telecom central offices in improving their power operations. "It's not uncommon for telecommunications central office operations to have decades-old low-efficiency, ferro-resonant rectifiers providing power conversion and back up for their critical operations," according to white paper author Vito Savino, product line leader, DC power systems, GE's Critical Power business. "If you were managing an e-commerce, banking or any other mission-critical information technology operation, would you bet the business on a 15-year-old power system?"

AXIe Consortium Announces a New AXIe Specification for Low-Cost Instrumentation and Switching
September 15, 2014
The AXIe Consortium announced a new specification, AXIe-0, suitable for low-cost instrumentation and switching. Titled "Low Cost Instrument and Switch Architecture," AXIe-0 retains the module size and board area of the current AXIe-1 Base Architecture, while delivering a cost effective platform for vendors and users not needing the full capability of AXIe-1. Von Campbell, Chairman of the AXIe Consortium and R&D Manager at Keysight Technologies, said, "The AXIe-0 specification is part of the ongoing efforts of the Consortium to broaden the use of AXIe. This new low cost instrument and switch architecture enhances cost effectiveness and improves ease of implementation for vendors wanting to take advantage AXIe's space, power, and form factor for products that don't require the high speed data infrastructure. These products include electronic switching, loads, frequency converters, and a wide set of custom functionality designed by system integrators."

Water purifier made from foil chip packets and glass tube might save lives in PNG
January 01, 1970
Adelaide engineering students have developed a simple water treatment system using foil chip packets and glass tubing, hoping they can save lives in the developing world. Globally, polluted water is blamed for an estimated 1.5 million deaths annually. John Fenech from the support agency ChildFund said contaminated water was a serious issue in Papua New Guinea, where the simple device was now on trial. "At the moment we're seeing about two-thirds of the population without access to proper safe, clean drinking water," he said.
