AFL has used this week’s BICSI Winter Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, FL, to launch the ASCEND family of fiber housings, cassettes, and assemblies for high-density data center applications. The ASCEND line offers flexibility, functionality, and ease-of-use, AFL says. The ASCEND fiber housings come in 1RU, 2RU, and 4RU sizes to serve requirements for up to 144, 288, and 576 fibers, respectively. The housings’ front and back doors are hinged on the bottom, and back of the housing cover is removable for better access to fiber-optic connector interfaces. Routing rings at the front of the trays makes routing patch cords, easy, secure, and organized, AFL asserts. The cassettes that populate these housings are designed to offer a wide range of options, according to AFL. These include BASE-8 to BASE-24 for both single-mode fiber and multi-mode fiber applications. These include applications ranging from patch-thr...

Often a cause for confusion, we often debate over what to opt for, an air cooler

Often a cause for confusion, we often debate over what to opt for, an air cooler or an air conditioner. Selecting the right one is vital for your home. With the summer heat providing no respite, here, we break it down for you – Is Air Cooler the more fitting choice or an air conditioner? An air cooler cools the air through the process of evaporation. It works on the principle of enthalpy, i.e., water absorbs a proportionately larger quantity of heat in order to evaporate. In dry environments, cooling of air via evaporation also has the benefit of conditioning the air with added moisture, ensuring your comfort. An air conditioner treats the air in an enclosed area through refrigeration. Here, hot air is taken, replacing it with cooler air. The whole process is referred to as HVAC, which is heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. It is done by altering the properties of air in a closed-door space and cooling the air within by changing the temperature. When it comes to this, an air cooler is definitely lighter on the pocket than an AC. Although both more or less serve the same purpose, an Air conditioner is priced relatively higher. This is including the initial set-up c...

WHO is calling on countries and partners to increase action to protect people from exposure to tobacco. “Every year, tobacco kills at least 8 million people. Millions more live with lung cancer, tuberculosis, asthma or chronic lung disease caused by tobacco,” said WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. “...

As popularity increases, YouPower strives for inclusion through spin

SOPH CHARRONAbby Okin ’20 leads a spin class last Tuesday, one of two weekly sessions she teaches as a YouPower instructor. This is Okin’s third semester teaching YouPower classes. Hidden among the grey folds of the Freeman International Center — a bunker-like building known for its brutalist exterior — the YouPower spinning studio might just be a quintessential “diamond in the rough.” The blacked-out 1500 square foot studio has everything you’d expect in a fully-functioning “soul-cycle”-esque pain-cave: riders in bright lycra uniforms, massive speakers, racks of spin shoes, colored dumbbells, folded towels, floor candles, and, in the middle of it all, 22 well-oiled spin bikes. “Once you get to the studio, the instructors do everything,” said YouPower co-president Anna Hubbell ’19.5, who teaches classes on Monday afternoons and Tuesday mornings. YouPower offers over 19 cumulative hours of instructor-led spin sessions every week, an activity that promises enough EDM and sweat to last you the entire semester. However, the YouPower of today is unlike what is used to be. The idea to turn the Freeman International Center space into a spin studio was conjured after the organization’s ...

Sponsored Article: Modular Cooling Tower Technology Gains Traction with Building Owners and Energy Managers

New modular cooling tower configurations are worthy of serious consideration for commercial HVAC as well as industrial applications. These large, efficient structures can nearly triple cooling capacity compared to typical single-cell, factory-assembled cooling towers, while using substantially less fan power to drive energy savings. Both crossflow and counterflow tower designs achieve a low measurable drift rate – down to 0.0005 percent of circulating water flow, and minimize piping and electrical connections. The entire installation process is shortened dramatically because delivery lead times are 60 percent shorter and field assembly is completed 80 percent faster compared with field-erected towers. An example of new modularization technology is the Marley® NC Everest® Cooling Tower. It provides up to 50 percent more cooling capacity per cell and uses up to 35 percent less fan power per ton of cooling compared with other factory-assembled crossflow single-cell towers. The crossflow configuration offers several advantages, including easier access to the tower interior and mechanical components. It also permits “variable flow” operation, which reduces water flow rates and energy...
