  • What is the difference between a REL and a PEL?

    There is often confusion between exposure limits put out by different agencies even within the same administration. For example, here the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) establishes Recommended Exposure Limits (RELs) whereas the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issues Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs). Realizing the difference between the two is ...

  • Closer Look at the Capacity of SLA Batteries and Solar Energy Systems

    Sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries have a reputation for being durable when used to support portable electronic devices. They require minimal maintenance and offer leak-proof capabilities. But when used with solar energy systems, the units present issues that can hinder the potential and performance of the machines. For example, general purpose SLA batteries should not be deep cycled, as ...

  • What is a Spectrometer?

    The characteristics of a white LED light differs greatly, when compared to a yellow CFL. Without any special tools, one can see that the LED emits a clear white color, while the CFL generates yellow light. Going one step further, using a spectrometer, one will be able to “dissect” the light sources and see that they are composed of other colors in the visible light spectrum, such as ...
