Electricity + Control

The latest Lancet Healthcare Access and Quality Index recently confirmed that South Africa’s healthcare ranks poorly, at 119 out of 195 countries in the world. With the misappropriation of funds, unaffordable medical aid rates and the generally abhorrent state of government hospitals (with some exceptions), it seems real transformation is required to save costs, increase efficiencies and improve patient care.

Mobile robotics in material handling and logistics will become a $75 billion market by 2027. It will then more than double by 2038. These staggering headline figures mask turbulent transformative change underneath: some technologies will rise and transform the fortunes of industries, fuelling growth rates far outpacing recent trends, whilst others will face with decay and obsolescence. We are at the beginning of the beginning of a transformative change, and the time to plan is now.

Energy companies will struggle to derive the maximum value from the Internet of Things (IoT) without access to radically improved, reliable, high-speed connectivity. This is according to independent research commissioned by Inmarsat, which found that while the overwhelming majority of energy companies are in the process of deploying or developing IoT solutions, low rates of connectivity are preventing them from realising the full benefits that IoT can deliver.

After almost 20 years of reliable service a Gasmet FTIR multigas analyser has been retired. The instrument, which is a Gasmet 9540 was purchased at the end of the last century by VTT, the Technical Research Centre of Finland. "We have utilised this analyser in a variety of research projects over the years and it has performed extremely well. However, some of the spare parts are no longer available so we have purchased a new Gas DX4000 as a replacement," comments Mari-Leena Koskinen-Soivi, a Research Scientist at VTT working in sustainable syngas R&D and analytics.

Great technological developments are borne out of the unique ideas of visionaries that carry these ideas into the future. Discover the Internet of Things with us.

DEHN Africa recently trained a number of local partners on the installation of the company’s high-voltage-resistant insulated (HVI) cable, in a two-day workshop which was run by the company’s technical director, Hano Oelofse.
