Ames OSRAM and Spanish electronic equipment manufacturer P4Q launched a digital lateral tomography (LFT) reader
Ames OSRAM (stock code of Swiss Stock Exchange: AMS), the world’s leading optical solution supplier, announced that with the support of Ames OSRAM, the Spanish ODM (original design manufacturer) P4Q has successfully developed a repeatable LFT (lateral flow tests) reader, which can be mass produced. Based on advanced optical semiconductor technology, P4Q’s new qassay LFT reader can help medical diagnostic equipment brand manufacturers create readable and accurate LFT analyzer products and win market opportunities.
The qassay LFT reader uses the as7341l spectral sensor of Ames OSRAM to read the detection line on the standard lateral chromatographic detection or fluorescence detection. The test paper consists of white LW q38e LED or Su eblp51 VA UVA LED is illuminated, and both LEDs are from Ames OSRAM. The filter technology and led of the spectral sensor make the LFT analyzer more reliable, more accurate and faster to read the test results.
Frederic Valentin, vice president of sales in Europe, Middle East and Africa of Ames OSRAM, said: “digital LFT has a wide range of applications, from pregnancy test stick to cholesterol level measurement. P4Q’s qassay LFT solution meets the needs of these application scenarios, enabling customers to use Ames OSRAM’s technology to digitize their products.”
Circuit breaker pushed by GE for gas insulated substation
Ge renewable power grid solutions (nyse-ge) launched the world’s first 420 kV, 63 Ka G 3 gas insulated substation (GIS) circuit breaker, which is a historic milestone prototype in the power industry. At a recent virtual round table, G3 circuit breakers were presented to a group of leading transmission utilities from all over Europe. The performance achieved by the prototype means that the industry will soon have a viable alternative to high-voltage products without SF 6. GE’s 420 kV all G3 gas insulated substation (GIS), including G3 circuit breakers, is expected to be commercially available in 2023.
Circuit breaker is a critical protection device for any substation. It is mainly used to cut off or redirect power through another path in case of grid problems. This new circuit breaker relies on GE’s game changing G 3 (pronounced “g” -cubed) gas insulation and switching technology. G 3 technology enables Ge to manufacture electrical equipment with the same high performance and compact size as traditional SF 6 product 2, while reducing the impact of gas CO 2 e by 99%.
“The development of the Ge 420 kV G 3 circuit breaker is a historic milestone in the power industry because it will enable utility companies to accelerate the decarbonization of their power grids. Until today, at the 420 kV level (the highest voltage level in Europe) There is no viable alternative to SF 6 in GIS. This means that G3 technology can also be applied to all existing main voltage levels in the world. According to our roadmap, we are proud to be at the forefront of creating a cleaner grid and are currently developing other types of G3 circuit breakers, “said Vera Silva, chief technology officer of Ge grid solutions.
