Miniaturized JEN COLOR color sensor module for backlighting applications Jena the MAZeT GmbH, product and Designhaus for colour – and Spektralsensorik, expanded its extensive range of highly accurate solutions for the control of LEDs, as well as special developments for the light control. The leading provider of true color sensors, and sensor modules for the first time shows the newly developed true color sensor TIAM3 with integrated signal processing. He distinguishes itself by 4 programmable amplifier channels and the true color sensor. Compared to the ancestor type TIAM2 is the TIAM3 in a flat 33% housing. The low overall height and the integrated signal processing establish optimal conditions for use for the RGB-LED backlighting in flat panel displays. In contrast to color sensors with polymer filter coatings, the TIAM3 is characterized by a high long term stability of the spectral filter properties and low temperature sensitivity. The spectral properties of the filter curves are optimally tailored to the requirements of an eye-specific LED color control. The sum of the properties of the smallest size, spectral characteristics and signal processing recommend this component for precision-controlled backlights of flat screens. In particular displays for photo and image editing, for medical diagnostic imaging or for high-quality multimedia displays require these properties of the backlight.

Piezoantriebs

The focusing speed is the most critical factor in the screening, because often the effects to be examined are time-dependent. Also the irradiation of fluorescent tracer is toxic to cells, and in an automated handling process, the requirement is for high throughput of samples. Depth effects can be observed fine adjustment of the focus for the three-dimensional imaging in this way. The adjustment of the focus on different levels of virtually cut the sample. The piezo drive allows you as a keen eye on operations within the sample. Responsiveness and settling times are again in the range of few milliseconds. A measurement is possible due to the high speed stability during movement.

The confocal microscopy is used to generate a three-dimensional image of a sample. Here, images of the sample in different focal planes are created and assembled by software. The entitlement to the resolution of the Z drive to adjust the focal plane are very high here, positioning accuracies in the range of a few 10 nanometers are required. Classic stepper motor drives are neither fast nor accurate enough here. PIFOC Piezo Z-drives: The imaging optics or the trial must be moved for lens, lens turret or sample holder for focus tasks and the adjustment of the focal plane. PIFOC Z-drives for the lens can be built very small and stiff. You therefore have faster response times, better governance and are accurate at large travel paths.

Another advantage is that the sample does not move during focusing and thus despite the quick response of the Piezos, remains undisturbed. The movement of the sample is however, not weakening the image in phase contrast microscopy (differential interference contrast microscopy, DIC). Also, Piezo-Z-drives for the sample due to their small size can be integrated in the motorized XY sample scanner, the as a system component of the microscope there is already common. The adaptation effort can thus minimized, lenses can be used flexibly. Customized PIFOC lens drives but move as the entire revolver or move a DIC Prism with highly specialised applications require appropriate solutions. Many microscope manufacturers already offer a wide range of equipment and accessories for the various microscopy techniques system integration. Sample scanner in the XY include level and Z rough shoots for the imaging optics that achieve accuracies in the range of microns with the usual stepper drives. Piezobasierte Z-drives for fast focusing are, however, rare to find standard accessories on the microscope manufacturers; These must usually be retrofitted. The task of the manufacturer of piezo drive systems is also to adapt lens Positioners for lens sizes. Piezo Z-drives for samples of physics instruments (PI) with travel strokes from 0.1 to 0.5 mm Watch XY-scanner without adapter in March-houses. Sample holder can be used Z adjuster for slides and micro titer plates of March homes directly in the piezo. The still low overall height of the built-in XY-Z system allows the use under common microscopes. Also the control of the Piezoantriebs must be easily integrated. This is a fast control via analogue signals. Alternative commanding via digital interfaces is implemented via software drivers. Piezo-Z-drives represent a possibility of easy-to-integrate, to adjust lens and sample relatively to each other. While a resolution can be achieved by a few nanometers for travel paths of up to 0.5 mm. The response times are just a few milliseconds.

ROWA automatisierungssysteme GmbH has the Karlsruhe administrative court on the legality of the use of the Advisory on September 26, 2008 and output terminals visavia decided by a pharmacy in Mannheim. The Court did not allow currently still the visavia, because some few, rather formal legal aspects visavia are not yet sufficiently by the consulting and distribution terminals. The Karlsruhe Administrative Court’s decision is not yet final and is Baden-Wurttemberg are checked in the next instance from the administrative court their correctness. Also, the Verwaltungsgericht Karlsruhe saw the need to such a review because the appeal was expressly permitted. Although many good reasons that the concern shown by the Administrative Court in Karlsruhe upheld, ROWA on behalf of pharmacies and the will to serving patients and customers as far as possible of the consulting and distribution terminals visavia adjustments. This should cause that also in accordance with the preliminary view of the Verwaltungsgericht Karlsruhe operate of the visavia is further possible.

Can the cards help in the decision-making process? Some refer to the Tarot as superstition and mischief, others had almost supernatural experiences with this technique of divination. The fact is that the art of the delve, Minchiate also called, according to the tradition, in the seventh century dates back and helped people to analyze past, present, and future of life on the basis of Tarot-or ordinary playing cards and to predict the future of the faith after also. Nowadays various providers offer the Cartomancy free of charge or at a certain rate in person or online at. While many different methods and patterns of interpretation have been developed over time. How are maps created? One or more questions are the starting point for the Tarot of the one who allows to lay the cards.

The question can be general or relate to a specific situation. In the Tarot, the diviner can rely on different techniques. Also the deck can be to Tarot, Angel -, Gypsy – or simple Skat cards Act. A particular characteristic is attributed to each of the cards in the interpretation. “” “” Especially the Tarot cards are meaningful with symbols such as the hermit,”justice”, the ruler”the force”, the lovers’ other images, making statements about our feelings, actions, decisions, and tasks. A single card not used in the Tarot but still as prediction.

The interpretation of the cards is rather in their entirety, and also the position of each icon plays a major role. The psychics using certain Legetechniken, where certain patterns and maps positions may represent, for example, past, present and future. Unconscious knowledge belief in the truth in the cards underlies the assumption that people also have the rational limits of time and space of an unconscious knowledge. The cards and the consciousness of applicant are also not independently, but about the General reason connected to each other. Therefore, maps and issues affect one another. Often the questioner receives as a response through the cards that already existed in his higher consciousness and only front had to run him. The Cartomancy considered psychological method to obtain a better understanding of the unconscious of the people already in its early stages. Who helps Cartomancy? Tarot might help in any circumstances and for any person, to see current issues and problems from a new perspective and unconscious responses to come. To make to successfully place the cards, people must be only open to unconscious and spiritual processes. The Tarot may be a help at a crossroads in the professional or love life, help to uncover unconscious problems from the past or a way white for general questions about the future. Interested parties must lie down not even the cards, but let make this a professional card reader. Many offer free of charge the Cartomancy for example online. The questioner can it relax, lean back and trust with an open mind on the answers in the cards.

2013 Actively, actively counteract the shortage of personnel manager with employee retention and members of the management team of that put the right course for the future to worry about the issue of staff retention. You actively counteract the skills shortage in the company through systematic staff retention. Decision makers in Bavaria have opportunity to learn all about it at a trade seminar in Munich in June 2013. Employee retention is the second most important topic for the personnel work in 2013 in Germany, Austria and in the Switzerland immediately after the establishment of a positive corporate culture. The current HR report 2012/2013 comes to this conclusion. For this study, the Institute for employment and employability (IBE) on behalf of the recruitment specialist of Hays surveyed 714 decision-makers from companies in these three countries. Shortage in Bavaria and nationwide in Germany reported the Federal Agency for work in a staff bottleneck analysis regularly, in which sectors and regions shortage There is.

In Bavaria and other Western provinces, the skills shortage, according to the BA analysis by June 2012 concerned particularly the electrical sector, IT Careers, as well as the companies operating in the fields of mechanical and automotive engineering, Mechatronics and energy. In these industries, particularly specialized professionals, especially engineers are missing in Bavaria and most other western Lander. Health and nursing professions labour, shortages even nationwide in search of doctors, the BA analysis based on simple numbers shows. Digression: special case doctors not a defect, but a distribution problem already 27.06.2011 in an article in the German medical journal before a looming shortage of physicians in Bavaria, despite rising number of doctors warned. One was an increase of part-time workers and doctors, who rather go on maternity leave than their male counterparts. On the other hand is already foreseeable that E.g. for the estimated 4,600 established general practitioners, the 2020 retirement will go, about 1,400 successor are missing.

New ECO climbing forest sets standards in terms of durability and AMSTERDAM of experience of nature, Netherlands. With the completion of the Simia climbing forest, Wekerom, the Dutch specialist of Skywalker adventure builders has emphasized strongly its role as one of the most innovative manufacturers of climbing parks in Europe. One of our was main effort to give people with disabilities, who find themselves excluded at the moment unfortunately in many cases still by the possibility to actively take part in climbing activities, this possibility in the future ‘, says Frank Bookelmann, the initiator of the forest rope park project in Wekerom. ‘ In this respect, we have deliberately engaged Skywalker with the construction. The company is its contemporaries in terms of reliability, durability and natural friendliness of its products far ahead. And Skywalker have already show their readiness during the first preliminary talks, to enter fully into the project as a partner.’ Ewout van Voorst, the C.o.o.

of Skywalker B.V..,. explains: ‘ Simia is just like our company a company for the social aspects play an important role, which socially committed in this context and which will also appeal to people with physical disabilities or learning difficulties. Both our corporate social responsibility very seriously.’ Willeke Lagerweij, co-owner of Simia, added: ‘Skywalker is to our knowledge the only manufacturer of climbing park, invested a lot of time and resources in innovative product development,’ adds Willeke Lagerweij, the co-owner of Simia. ‘ Tags such as durability and natural compatibility are pure lip service or commercial gimmicks for many companies. Skywalker however translates both into practice. Still, we have examined critically the designs presented by Skywalker from two points of view. Tree experts say guarantees developed by Skywalker and anchoring technology for climbing courses used permanent tree health.’ ‘ Our concepts meet the highest European safety standards’, van Voorst continues. ‘ The Simia project is now the fourth of our climbing forest projects, which was equipped with the Edelrid smart belay climbing safety system, to the visitors to allow 100% climbing safety without limiting the fun-factor.’ Simia is the newest natural climbing facility in the Netherlands and will be opened this years in phases since mid-April.
