The Autonomous Car, Can Electronic Systems Defeat Human Error?

Though it seems like something totally unbelievable, a car that can take you where you want to go without your ever having to do anything more than tell it where to go, this “car of tomorrow” is already starting to become a reality.  Many major automotive companies are now offering cars with “driver assistance” as standard equipment.  These “cars of today” can help you with braking if they feel that you are closing on another vehicle too quickly, they […]

Our Metalized Textiles are used in Making “Healthy Clothing” as well as “Smart Clothing”!

Most of the time, I use this forum to write about the uses of V Technical Textiles, Inc.’s metalized textiles in reference to manufacturing and shielding concerns about RF and EMI interference generated by electronic products.  Our shielding material helps to mitigate RF/EM interference by blocking its transmission into the tight environment of electronic products to abate the interference that they produce and, at the same time, stop the RF and EM interference produced by the neighboring components from […]

Minimizing UV and RF Radiation Exposure, A Great Idea for Either End of the EMR Spectrum

UV Radiation
When I was a child fifty-five years ago, my mother often encouraged us to go outside and “get a nice healthy suntan”.  As time went on, we took it a step further and used tanning beds, as they provided the necessary UVA and UVB to get the tan.  Along the way, we also learned that there is an element of truth about being exposed to the sun being healthy for us.  Limited exposure to the sun gives the positive […]

Electronic Evidence-Secure in the Bag

It may seem strange that a textile company would be involved in Forensic Science, but it’s true!!  In today’s world, even the criminals (from “white collar” criminals to drug dealers) use computers, phones, and electronic devices to store information.  In many cases, this information can be used as key evidence in trials.  When these devices are seized with a warrant, they become part of the “Chain of Custody/Evidence”.  In legal context, this refers to the documentation or paper trail […]

RF EMI Shielding-Helping Our Systems Work Well Together

You know how it is in the workplace.  If one works in a “cubicle farm” with large open spaces and no privacy, all of the ambient noise created by co-workers makes it very hard for one to concentrate on the project at hand.  The noise and interference present in the environment make doing one’s best work much harder.  It’s nicer and more efficient to have a private office, protected from outside distraction by four walls, a ceiling, and a […]

Shielded Enclosure

Which Enclosure is Right for My Business?

Choosing the correct enclosure for your business depends on several factors:

 The size of the product(s) that is/are being tested.
 The types of tests and the tolerances/specifications required to do the testing  properly.
 The features that are required for access, ventilation, power, the “bells and whistles” that suit your individual needs.

The enclosure has to be large enough in size to accommodate the items being tested,  the instrumentation used to perform the testing, along with the number of personnel involve […]

Shielding Clothing

E-SMOG, I Can’t See It, but I Know It’s There. Should I be Afraid of It?

We live in a world full of e-smog, the term for ALL artificially produced electrical and magnetic fields as well as electromagnetic radiation.  For years, there have been concerns regarding the effects of RF and EMI on the human body.  With the proliferation of devices that emit RF/EMI radiation (cell/mobile telephoned, radar stations, cell phone towers, computers, high voltage lines, WiFi LANs, household appliances, electric motors and transformers), there is rising concern about the potential long term effects of […]
