You could turn ON or OFF any device at home or anywhere by remote control for safety or conveniences. Such devices include your gate or garage door; lights, car amp., and any gadget you could think of. There some equipment you better control from a long distance depending on the coverage distance of the remote control. The more powerful is the WiFi remote control using mobile phone. Our focus is to make remote control light switch to control a light or many in private or public buildings.
There are many wireless lamp switches at very good prices however they have limited range compared to what you want. Therefore, if you want to make remote control light switch from about 100-200 feet away, a sure-bet is to use a wireless remote control light switch. It has relays in the receiver board equal to the number of lights (or group) you would like to control. It is suitable to control other devices like garage doors, window blinds and many devices you may think of.
Make Remote Control Light Switch with WiFi or Bluetooth
Other version of this wireless module employs WiFi or Bluetooth technology which helps you whether you want to turn on your furnace from your mobile phone when coming home from work or have your lights turn on at dusk or off at dawn, and lots more. The control board contained a relay or more which couples by wireless to the remote switch. Relay has sets of normally opened or normally closed contact which is simply to close or open a contact. And, when you understand how it works, configure and connect properly to your device, then it will bid your command at will. See below in the video a demonstration of how to use the wireless remote control switch.
Additional advantage of smart home WiFi switch include the ability to turn ON or Off devices using your phone from anywhere and it’s not restricted to a particular distance range.
Anesthesia system also known as anesthesia workstation consists of the ‘anesthesia machine’, ventilator and breathing system. Others are scavenging system and monitors. Further to these, you may add drug delivery system, suction machine and data management system.
The anesthesia machine
Anesthesia machines comes in variety of shapes and sizes. Anesthetic machine use and working principles is the same with different machines. However, added features from manufacturers separate between each type. Apart from this, parts may differ by shape and size but still call by the same name. For example, Vapourizer. check vaporizer for Boyle’s anesthetic machine which is different from draeger.
Because of danger of electrostatic discharge, body of anesthetic machine and accessories are produced with anti static material.
Anesthetic Machine Parts
Anesthetic machine parts include but not limited to the following: Rotameters or flow meters, vaporizing bottles also known as vaporizer and oxygen gas. Others are anesthetic vapor, nitrogen supply, carbon dioxide supply and breathing circuit accessories. Further are oxygen flush, cylinder yokes, soda lime canister, sensors and gas regulators.
The Anesthesia Machine CWM-301C
The anesthesia ventilator uses a pneumatically-operated electronic control mode, a 10.1-inch color LCD display that monitors various breathing parameters.
It is suitable for the medical department to perform circulatory tightness, semi-closed, semi-open inhalation anesthesia, controlled or assisted breathing, and monitoring and display of patient’s ventilation parameters.
High precision evaporator with precise concentration control. Advanced temperature, flow and pressure compensation techniques are used.There are various evaporators such as enflurane, isoflurane, and sevoflurane.

What an advantage it is to get free lights for your comfort at night? There are many ways to light your corridor at night but not without a cost. The cost of this solar-powered outdoor lights is the initial cost to purchase the item. Then the cost of exposing the solar panel/lantern to sun’s rays during the day.
If you’re not tight on a budget, you could have a central solar system installation for your facility. for more information on that go to solar panel installation with everything ready-made.However, if you just need to light few bulbs at night then you can choose to buy some of the single standalone unit.
Any solar system consists of solar panel, batteries and battery charger. Others are charge regulator for fairly large to very large installation, low voltage battery disconnect and of course the load. The load in this case is the bulb.
This product may not require a charge regulator because it use low power. At the same time, it is a complete product. However, you can go smart when you combine the tiny solar panels in parallel like say six for example for more power output.
Design method for solar outdoor light varies. A design make use of a single cell (battery) which supply high frequency pulse current to a powerful LED bulb. It has the same result on the LED as a dc supply with the advantage that it uses half of the power. The battery and charger are inside the base/handle of the bulb. You can use any of two options to charge the bulb, either from mains electric grid power or pure sunlight.
In the design for this solar-powered outdoor lights, they make provision for rainy and brighter days. The solar panel has enough solar cells to provide enough charging when sun is not bright.
Definitions of Anesthetizing Location What is an anesthetizing location? An anesthetizing location is an area of the hospital. This area assigned by the hospital for the normal administration of an inhalation anesthetic agent. And in most cases, this refers only to operating rooms and delivery rooms. What is the meaning of non flammable location? As the…
You can turn on any lights be it at home, in a machine, or vehicle by using the ‘regular switch’ but sometimes for some reasons you don’t want the full beam of light therefore, you use the dimmer switch unit so you can go from high beam to low beam and vice versa. Regular switch simply provide two switching levels ON or OFF.
Sometimes the arrangement is three positions, that is, high, low and off. However some applications demand smooth control of light intensity between low and high. In this case intensity is continuously variable using any of different variations and technique used for dimmer. There are different Variations of Dimmer Switch including:
A dimmer is actually power control device. It will work with incandescent and LED lights, and DC motors; also heating elements such as power control of heating devices like heating element in Water Bath, Incubator, and hot air oven/sterilizers. However there are design variations and degree of complexities. Simple dimmer do not give smooth control but it does work. One good thing about this is that it is durable and sustainable. Precision not seriously but it is accurate.
Dimmer Switch is used in:
Light intensity control for ophthalmic equipment like microscope: ophthalmoscope, slit lamp, bipolar coagulation diathermy etc.
Light intensity control for homes and apartment
Could be adapted to speed control of small electric motors
How do I make a simple Dimmer switch?
The simplest dimmer switch is a variable resistor also commonly called rheostat. However, rheostat wastes lot of power as heat, hence it is good where power loss is not important. You achieve control by varying the resistancebetween the light and the power supplies. When using variable resistor in a circuit to vary brightness of a light bulb, you make the resistance greater when you want a dimming experience.
At the same time, you make the resistance smaller when you want a brighter light setting. You increase resistance by increasing the length of the path of resistive material through which the electrons have to flow. Meanwhile, you decrease resistance by decreasing the length of the path.
A solenoid water control valve is an electromagnetic device. It function to open or close access to water flow. We can use to open or close access to any fluid such as a gas or oil etc. The video below demonstrates different component within a typical solenoid valve.

Any current carrying coil will produce a magnetic field. This exert a mechanical force of attraction or repulsion on any magnetic object. It produce the same effect like a permanent magnet. However, in this case it is an electromagnet because it become a magnet through a current carrying coil. That is, the field could be made to turn ON or OFF as desired by switching the current through the coil ON or OFF signal. This magnetic effect find applications in magnetic relay, solenoid and some other types of transducers.
What is a solenoid valve?
A solenoid is a device that produces mechanical motion when a current carrying conductor coil receives electric current. The movable portion of a solenoid is the armature. A relay is a solenoid set up to activate switch contacts. This occur when its coil receives electric current. The minimum amount of coil current to actuate a solenoid or or relay from its “normal” (de-energized) position is Pull-In current. Drop-out current is the maximum coil current below which an energized relay will return to its “normal” state. See how a solenoid valve works.
Armature is the movable magnetic object, and you can move most armatures with either direct current (DC) or alternating current (AC) energizing the coil. The polarity of the magnetic field is not important for the purpose of attracting an armature. Therefore. you can use solenoids to open door latches by electrical means, open or shut valves, move robotic limbs, and even actuate electric switch mechanisms. Like a relay, a solenoid valve may be normally open or normally closed.
However, signal to energize the solenoid valve could come from a remote switch or another transducer. This may be light sensing, heat sensing or pressure. Others are magnetic sensing, or whatever we desire as our signal source.

A continuous flow anesthetic machine is most commonly used in advanced countries of the world. Although its used in many developing countries too. Its purpose is to deliver accurate and continuous supply of oxygen, nitrous and any other medical gases. In the flow, the oxygen mixes with accurate concentrated anesthetic vapor such as halothane or isoflurane. Further, the mixture is delivering to the patient at a reduced and save pressure through gas regulators and flow meters. However, some anesthetic machine includes ventilator, suction, and patient monitors.
Best Anesthetic Machine
It’s nice buying new machine which is affordable compared to used ones. Sometimes, refurbished are not proper and you are unsure of its status. Especially for life saving device like anesthetic machines. Anesthetic machines and ventilator just like other medical equipment are sensitive. Therefore, requires standards especially the vaporizer, rotameter also known as flow meter.
Components which causes anesthetic machine failure include the gas regulators/and gauges requires competent personnel to carry out proper standard tests and calibration. This at most obviously out of reach in most developing countries. You need equipment sources with warranty and maintenance plan. Be it new or refurbished equipment, the margin in price are usually very small. I always recommend new equipment to my clients. You can choose between branded and generic machine and each of them have merits and demerits. Do you need good quality anesthetic machine with ventilator and patent monitor backed with technical and users level training? Contact us for more information.
Anesthetic Machine Failure
Anesthetic machine failure include leakages which are the most common problem with all appliances using air and gas and anesthetic machines and Ventilator are no exceptions. These happen through the joints, and fittings; also through the gas pressure reducing valve (regulators) or the flow meters and this is usually as a result of aged O –rings, ruptured rubber, corrugated tubing and host of many others. However it is imperative to test and confirm there is no leakage of gas be it nitrous, oxygen, air and the anesthetic vapors.
Precautions Handling Anesthetic Equipment
Ensure NO OIL or Grease to avoid fire or explosion
Tight-to-tight! Do not over-tight screws, bolts and nuts to avoid breakage because tubing, piping, nuts and screws are essentially copper and or brass materials.

Design Engineers, electrical and electronic technicians and craftsmen all use electronic symbol and components. They use them at one time or the other. The engineer use them as materials for his/her design work. Meanwhile, in time of electrical installation, fabrication, or troubleshooting, all the professionals make use of them.
Electronic circuit symbols are symbolic representation of electrical and electronic components in a circuit or schematic diagram. Combination of components in a circuit and how they relate to each other determines how the circuit function. Meanwhile, position of a component symbols be it parallel or series with others determines its function. However, if you know how, you can fashion out a wiring diagram from circuit and vice versa.
Printed Circuit Board (PCB) and wiring installation is a product of circuits/schematic diagram.
How to read and interpret a schematic diagram
To read a circuit, you begin to trace from the left side of the board. But you need to identify power source and switch from other components and how they interconnect. Reading and translating wiring diagram is a skill in troubleshooting. However, if you can read, understand and interpret a diagram, you can easily identify and isolate problem areas in equipment and appliances.
To acquire the skill is not difficult, all you need to do is to identify each component, know all about each component, understand how one component relates to the other. Meanwhile, understand basic parallel connection, series connection and series-parallel circuittheory. Listed below are examples electrical electronic components symbols.
Example electronic components and symbols listed are Transformer, Headphone, diodes, transistor, resistor and lots more.
