What is POWERWALL? Do we need a powerwall?

No Comments

Have you heard about Powerwall? When I first heard/read about it, I have no clue what it is. I read more about it from their website. Then I found the answer.

So, what is a Powerwall?

My understanding… It is a huge computer screen, bigger than any monitor that I have seen before. It cannot be positioned on a table. It can only be fixed on a wall. Hence, any data interpretation/analysis that requires huge display can be easily monitored via the Powerwall.

The actual detail about Powerwall is as follows:

The powerwall has a large rear projection surface of 5.20 m x 2.15 m which is illuminated by 8 networked and synchronised projectors. Thanks to the high resolution of 4640 x 1920 pixels and the soft-edge blending that provides an overall picture with no overlapping, it is possible to picture large quantities of data down to an extreme level of detail.


For us chemical engineer, is Powerwall relevant for us?

I believe it is especially when massive data interpretation and analysis are involved. Also when there are several pages of data, it ease data comparison and analysis. Information that need to be zoomed, can also be viewed clearly as the screen is massively huge. Don’t you agree with me?

How to Spec Lighting for Sight Glass Applications

No Comments

This new white paper from L.J. Star explains how to specify lighting for sight glass applications. It covers the surprising relationship between voltage and wattage, how to mitigate heat concerns, the relationship between reflectors and bulb position, and the difference between foot-candles, lumens, and lux.

Handy reference charts give the recommended distances for different types of explosion-proof and non-explosion-proof lights.
