With this in mind, here are three common security systems for retail stores.

Recording: With a CCTV setup (see example here), you can record every transaction that occurs in the store. This is ideal as you can provide the police and insurance companies with proof of the incident. Not only that, if you have a well-placed camera, potential robbers will notice and avoid your store.

How Shaft Grounding Systems Protect Ships From Corrosion And Rust

One of the biggest problems any ship can face while sailing on the open seas is rust and corrosion. Problems in the ship’s hull or propeller can spell disaster if not found in time. To guard against this happening, most of today’s ships have shaft grounding systems to protect them against rust and corrosion.

When a turning propeller shaft from a ship is insulated from the ship’s hull by oil film from its bearings, this can help accelerate corrosion on the ship. Using non-metallic bearing materials in the tail shaft can also contribute to this problem, because it allows for an electrical potential to be measured between the turning propeller shaft and the hull. Another issue comes into play when ships have a cathodic protection system...

Impressed Current Cathodic Protection

ICCP uses sacrificial metal and a DC power source to protect important metal from corrosion on large-scale projects, such as ocean pipelines and offshore platforms.

What is Cathodic Protection? 

Cathodic protection (CP) refers to a series of techniques for preventing electrolytic corrosion of metal. Since it is the electric current in the water that causes the corrosion, the essential idea of CP is to use a sacrificial anode, causing the metal to protect to act as the cathode. The self-contained sacrificial anode is the most basic kind of CP and often found in heat exchangers and similar devices.

Creative Uses For Your Personal GPS System

Your personal Global Positioning System can be an extremely handy device to have with you when you leave your home. Additionally, you can have a great deal of fun with them if you are the creative type, and you possess a little bit of “know-how”.
