Re: electro magnet

Wayne, save yourself some trouble cleaning the magnets and put a plastic "tear away" sheet over the magnet befor you use it, then you can just peel away the plastic and keep your magnets from getting fouled with iron filings and such. Little bits of metal are almost impossible to remove once they ge...

Re: Emulate a Keyboard with a Notebook PC?

Micros are something I haven't worked with yet. Maybe some time down the road, but i appreciate the reply. I am leaning towards one of those roll up keyboards i can just throw in my case.

Have a great day, everyone,

To quote one of my favorite philosophers...."This is the kind of spontaneous publicity I need! My name in print! That really makes somebody! Things are going to start happening to me now!"


Congrats on being published, Cesear, I'll wait for my new issue and check it out.

Re: Emulate a Keyboard with a Notebook PC?

cpbiomed, did you come up with a solution? I have a similar problem with the x-ray systems I work on, although they are cabinet systems, not medical. I assume you are talking medical?

best regards,

USB to serial convertor with Windows Vista

Hi all, I use a USB to serial converter for programming a Uc based system. The problem I have is that when I plug into the USB, Windows assigns a com port, seemingly randomly each time I plug it in, which then forces me to guess which com port I'm working on. This creates all kinds of issues as my p...

Re: timed outlets anyone?

i have electronic delay switches on my bathroom fans, they fit in a standard wall box, and have about 5 different buttons you can push for on times from 5 minutes to 1 hour, or a constant on. Would be easy enough to put in a box and do what you want. I think they cost about 25 bucks at home depot. Tom

Re: New LCD TV

In my experience with digital x-ray equipment, we still recommend CRT monitors to our customers because of the problems listed above. The biggest issue we run is to is response time. The typical LCD monitor/tv has a response time of about 5ms. With our systems, the video card is outputting video fas...

Re: Lead acid desulfator circuit

Hmmm Its almost beginning to sound like ultrasonic cleaning in which the electrolyte would be the tank fluid and the plates are the object to be cleaned. Wonder if it would be possible to immerse an ultrasonic transducer directly into the electrolyte? Why not put the transducer in a water batch and ...

Re: Garmin GPS Nuvi 200W USB Connector Issue

Actually as far as I know there isn't a law against using a GPS on a commercial aircraft, these are rules enforced by individual carriers. Alaska Airline prohibits GPS use in flight, Southwest allows it. It works best to not have a destination input into the system though, because the system is cons...

Re: Dell 1800MP projector

I would look at heat issues, are all the fans working? Are the airways clean and unobstructed? If it was mine, I would "disassemble gently" to locate the problem. If you feel you are getting in too far, re-assemble and re- evaluate. Sure sounds like an over temp problem to me.
