US R & D reservoir electricity and transmission as one of the nanowires
University of Central Florida recently developed a set of rechargeable batteries and transmission as one of the nanowires. Increase in copper nanorods generated around the outer circle of thin plastic sheet and a metal sheath to wrap up, and finally with a special gel bond the layers together. Because nanowhisker insulated, so inside the conductive copper retention functions, the copper outer layer may also be stored electricity alone. The technology can be applied directly to the field of electric vehicles, space launch vehicles and portable electronic devices, which will help reduce the “weight” and reduce costs.
42 kinds of new cable installation tools come
US Southern Electric Wire & Cable Company (Southwire) introduced 42 kinds of new cable installation tools to meet the needs of custom installation. This VDV tools further complement its product range of low-voltage cable product line and related tools and equipment of lines. It is the kind of installation program based product development approach to improve the efficiency of on-site installation and cable products. The launch of the company’s 42 kinds of new cable installation tools include cable cutters, wire strippers, crimping machine, a line tool, cable inspection and testing and so on.
Copper refresh 100Gbps transfer rate record
Bell Labs realized using a single pair of copper wires within 70 meters 1Gbps symmetric transmission rate, and use double within 30 meters of copper wire to achieve transfer rates of 100Gbps, 100Gbps record refresh rate over copper. The resulting work is called XG-FAST technology is based on the extension G.fast technology. The technology to transmit frequency up to 500MHz, but closer than many shorter G.fast protocol standards, relatively high-speed transmission can only be achieved within a short distance. Fiber to the home can be used to improve internal transport home network, or to improve the transfer rate within the community. This year is expected to launch the official version of the technical standards.
South Africa developed a portable device to protect against shark submarine infringement
South Africa’s latest development of a new device shark pod can protect submarine cables, divers from shark attack. The device uses “shark in the deep sea can capture prey trace the current issue of the heart beat,” this feature, change the direction of the shark away near the current barrier that protects the basis not only harm sharks, seals, dolphins and other creatures on submarine cables, personal safety. It is reported that the device will be piloted in five months on undersea cables, the future will be more large-scale experiments. There are already companies began selling in Australia, which means a heavy submarine cable added protection, if successful, is expected in the global markets.
Smart Cable protection technology to reduce costs to increase reliability
Energy consulting and testing agency DNV GL publish intelligent cable protection solutions continuously monitor and detect the exact location of medium voltage (MV) power cable system failure. The program in real time up to date cable, reduce maintenance time and enhance medium voltage power cable system stability, and reduce overall service costs for utilities and industrial property owners.
