Onset Publishes White Paper on Choosing Building Occupancy Data Loggers

"Choosing Occupancy and Light On/Off Data Loggers - 5 Important Considerations."

BOURNE, Mass.Addressing lighting use in existing buildings is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to reduce energy costs. Portable occupancy and light on/off data loggers are ideal tools for collecting room occupancy and lighting data needed to determine where to implement permanent changes that lead to energy efficiency and significant potential cost savings.


Onset (http://www.onsetcomp.com), a leading supplier of data loggers, has published a new white paper entitled, "Choosing Occupancy and Light On/Off Data Loggers - 5 Important Considerations."

Aimed at facility managers, energy auditors, lighting contractors, and others, the white paper explains how building occupancy and light use data can help convince decision-makers that lighting retrofit projects are worthwhile. It also describes important features to consider when choosing a data logger, including calibration, logger accuracy and range, speed of deployment, and time-saving software.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
