Proper RFI Management is Crucial, Wireless, the Internet of Things, and 5G depend on It!

Proper RFI Management is Crucial, Wireless, the Internet of Things (IOT) and 5G depend on it! Proper RFI Management is Crucial, Wireless, the IoT, and 5G depend on it.  All three of the above-mentioned systems operate in an RFI filled environment.  Due to the increase of the number of devices, there is more RFI in our environment than ever before.  Every electronic device emits RFI, the trick is to control it.  Think of the environment as an office full workers. ...

What can Metalized Textiles do for You? Your Imagination is the only Limit!

Since the founding of V Technical Textiles, Inc., it has been the world's single largest distributor of electrically conductive fabrics and notions.  Many people have no idea what metalized textiles are used for.  When they first came out, metalized textiles were used largely in electrical manufacturing in the aerospace, automotive, electronics industries as ESD carpeting, EMI shielded gaskets and quickly evolved into shielding materials in electronic devices to stop RF Interference from affecting the proper function of these sensitive...

RF Protective Suit, Protection for 5G Workers, Microwave Workers and Maintenance Personnel!

Most of us know that we are surrounded by RF radiation all of the time.  This radiation is of the non-ionizing variety, meaning that it lacks the energy to damage the DNA of a cell and cause mutations.  RF is routinely absorbed by the body and the effects of this absorption are called "thermal effects", basically much as a microwave oven can heat water, RF radiation can rapidly warm the body.  The eyes and the testes are most vulnerable...

5G-What’s the Latest Information on how it will Affect our Health?

The coming of 5G has had many people worried about "how will all of that RF radiation affect my health?" since its rollout in 2018.  The concern about cell phones in general and their radiation emission has increased over the years, as people spend more time on them and near them than ever before.  The FCC developed the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) in 1996, at a time when the cell phone was just a phone.  The SAR reflected the...

COVID-19 is NOT Finished with Us yet, Please Keep Your Masks and Your Distance!!

Many people are worried that the "second wave" of  COVID-19 has arrived with summer.  I tend to agree with Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has stated "we are still in the first wave of COVID-19".  People just got tired of making the effort that is necessary to keep the rate of the infection down to manageable levels for our medical system and assumed that "this crisis is over".   I believe that COVID-19 is going to take our country to...

Opening the Economy does NOT Mean All is Safe, Make Sure to Keep Your Guard Up!!

We might be on the verge of getting "life back to normal", the question is "what is normal now"?  I feel that life has changed for many of us, with new steps that are and should be becoming parts of our "new normal routine" to ensure that life continues to proceed smoothly.  Some segments of the population have jumped directly from social distancing and using precautionary measures to "stop the spread" to the illogical conclusion that "we're safe now,...

Masks by the Numbers-What do I Really Need in a Mask?

We all know that it is still smart for us to wear facial coverings or masks when we are out in the public, helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19 during this Social Distancing phase of the Pandemic, even though the basic restart of the economy has recently begun in some localities.  The questions are: Who should be wearing a mask, What type of mask should I be wearing, How do I choose a mask, How do I put...

Reopening America, How Will We Really Know when it’s Safe?

As we strive to outwait and outwit this virus, it seems that many people are losing their patience and saying "let the future be damned, let's get back to work or we will be ruined".  Certainly, the stresses of this pandemic have put several different types of pressures and stresses on Americans:  Financial, Depression, and Fear to mention a few.  The biggest one for many people seems to be financial.  We have had the great good fortune of a...

Back to School, New Rules for an Old Routine will be in Play this Year!

We live in interesting times, COVID-19 has turned our routines, our economy, and our lives upside down for the last two and a half months.  We are talking about "Re-Opening America" and "Getting things back to Normal" more and more each day.  One of the biggest concerns about reopening the economy is "how can the parents go back to work if the kids can't go back to school safely?"  The elephant in the room that no one is talking...

Medical Masks, We’ve Come a Long Way, but More Change is Needed Now!

The Bubonic Plague, which rolled over the world from China, the Middle East, Russia, and Europe was the deadliest epidemic in human history.  It claimed an estimated 150 million human lives.  It started in China and when the bacterium Yersinia pestis hitched a ride inside of fleas on rodents, and was transferred to humans via flea bites, leaving death and economic disaster in its wake.  The "Plague Doctors" who treated the infected people were well intentioned, but also completely...
