How to Prevent Bed Sores With Medical Beds

Posted by Amie Sedlock on May 4, 2016 10:30:00 AM

They form when a person lays still for too long limiting the blood and air flow to certain area of the skin.  As the epidermis breaks down it opens to expose the flesh below which is then easily infected.  Ask a nurse how challenging it is caring for someone with bed sores.

How To Know The Difference Between Open Loop And Closed Loop Blowers

Posted by Amie Sedlock on Apr 4, 2016 10:30:00 AM

What's The Difference Between Open Loop Blowers and Closed Loop Blowers?

What's the difference between open loop control and closed loop control? Simple, it's like driving a car. When you are driving your car, you give the car more gas to go up a hill, and less gas when going down a hill. In this example, you are changing the amount of gas that is propelling the car up or down the hill. This example can be applied to open loop control in blowers. When you add resistance to the blower it will work to 100% of the voltage provided. In other words, it will max out the current limit to provide 100% of the voltage input into the system.
