Need to install a Biometric Fingerprint Door Lock?

ML10 biometric fingerprint door lock is a Smart lock with embedded fingerprint recognition technology is easy to program and install, as no wiring is required. It’s a plug ‘n play replacement to your old “lock & key” door knob. Registering users with their fingerprints is also quick and easy. Each ML10 door lock can store and recognize up to 40 users. The ML10-B operates the very same way as does our ML10 (fingerprint door lock). However, this ML10-B version is additionally equipped with built-in Bluetooth technology that allows for remote control capability.

ML10’s next generation fingerprint recognition technology means authorized users never have to worry about accidental lockout because ML10 requires no keys nor codes which can be forgotten or lost. Users simply touch the fingerprint sensor to open the door. It is extremely secure, as authorized users don’t share their key or code because their fingerprint becomes their key and code! ML10 users’ registration data remains safely stored in the device, even in the event of a total power outage, so there is never a need to re-enroll users. And, there’s no need to change the locks when a previously authorized user is no longer permitted door access.

Ideal for residential and small business applications, the ML10’s door handle, latch and strike are reversible for either left or right-handed preference. Its Do-it-Yourself design makes upgrading to ML10 swift and simple. Powered by four AA alkaline batteries, the ML10 signals an audible warning when it’s time to replace the batteries. And, in the unlikely event of a total power loss, ML10 can still be operated manually by a traditional metal key which ships along with the ML10 and instructional guide.

How to test the attenuation of Fiber Optic Cable

I got tired of all the wizards and scientist over explaining every detail when it comes to testing fiber, so I grabbed a light source and power meter out of inventory and made a fiber link with a couple of wall mount boxes so I can easily show you how to do it.

Here’s some words from the manufacture regarding this fiber test kit – The Silicon ZOOM II / Dual OWL 850 Test Kit is ideal for LAN managers and installers who need to do simple attenuation tests on their multimode networks.

The Silicon ZOOM II (Zeroed Output Optical Meter) is an economical fiber optic power meter designed to provide accurate testing of multimode fiber cables at 850nm wavelength. The 4-digit 7-segment LCD display shows power readings with a resolution of 0.01dB, power units in dBm, dB, or uW, and battery power level. The Silicon ZOOM II comes configured with a 2.5mm universal port for connection to SC, ST, and other connector types that have a 2.5mm ferrule.

These are in stock, order it online at Discount-Low-Voltage.com

A new way to Data Center, install the DAMAC Structure

Traditional data centers are built from the ground up by anchoring cabinets and racks to the floor then adding aisle containment, cable routing and overhead power distribution. The process is time and labor intensive, with each phase typically handled by a different contractor.

With DAMAC Structures, we handle the entire process, from design and manufacturing through onsite assembly. As a result, DAMAC Structures can be up and running in 75 percent less time than a traditional facility.

Let’s take a look at a set up from our YouTube channel.

Other benefits include:

  • Flexibility. Seismic anchoring, aisle containment, cable routing and the overhead busway are independent of the racks and the room itself. Racks can easily be moved or added, and the whole system reconfigured as needed.
  • Versatility. The system can be designed to any specifications and accommodate any size server cabinet or rack, including racks from third-party vendors.
  • Consistency. DAMAC Structures enable you to develop a corporate standard for the data center infrastructure, streamlining moves, adds, changes and management.
  • Reduced building requirements. Because the DAMAC Structure supports the aisle-containment, cable routing and overhead busway components, your building’s ceiling system doesn’t have to.
  • Fewer connections. One power connection, one data in-feed and one cooling inlet will support the DAMAC Structure.
  • Power and cooling efficiency. The defined footprint of a DAMAC Structure enables you to optimize power and cooling.
  • Staged buildouts. DAMAC Structures can be installed as “pods” and expanded or reconfigured as needed.

With DAMAC Structures, you gain all the benefits of an agile, cost-optimized data center infrastructure without the need for complex, multiphase construction projects. Let us put the benefits of DAMAC Structures to work in your facility. For more information contact Discount-Low-Voltage.com

How and why to keep Fiber Optic Connectors clean

When dealing with fiber optic networks, it is important to know that cleaning is a key factor to keep dirt and contamination from blocking the critical light path on a fiber. Dirt and contaminates contribute to 50-80% of all fiber issues, causing networks to start dropping packets or go down all together. Keeping your connections clean keeps your network running as well as:

  • Ensure connector integrity – crucial for reliable network performance
  • Extends the life of connectors – dirt causes connector damage
  • Minimizes troubleshooting network issues – cleaning eliminates a majority of connection issues

Let’s check out a couple of easy to use products by AFL from our YouTube channel.
