AUTOMATED BLINDS. BLINDS
Automated blinds. Exterior plastic shutter.
- Convert (a process or facility) to largely automatic operation
- operated by automation; "an automated stoker"
- (automation) the act of implementing the control of equipment with advanced technology; usually involving electronic hardware; "automation replaces human workers by machines"
- Automation is the use of control systems and information technologies reducing the need for human intervention.
- Confuse or overawe someone with something difficult to understand
- Deprive (someone) of understanding, judgment, or perception
- Cause (someone) to be unable to see, permanently or temporarily
- window coverings, especially vertical blinds, wood blinds, roller blinds, pleated blinds
- The blinds are forced bets posted by players to the left of the dealer button in flop-style poker games. The number of blinds is usually two, but can be one or three.
- A window blind is a type of window covering which is made with slats of fabric, wood, plastic or metal that adjust by rotating from an open position to a closed position by allowing slats to overlap. A roller blind does not have slats but comprises a single piece of material.
Daylighting in the Tropics: Daylight Availability, Sky Luminance Distribition, Daylight Application with Automated Blind
Residential and commercial buildings share about 55% of the world electrical energy consumption. Proper use of daylight reduces energy for lighting and air- conditioning. Due to the luminosity of sky, daylighting offers a great potential for application in tropical region. However, daylighting in the tropics under the constraints of requirement of energy conservation, visual comfort, and varying skylight and sunlight faces a real challenge that still awaits satisfactory solutions. This research addresses investigating tropical daylight and its illuminance through window. Measurements at a daylight station in Bangkok, Thailand, were compiled for a priori knowledge of the availability of tropical daylight and sky luminance distributions. This study also examines a means of automated blind to bring daylight into building interior to illuminate at appropriate level as much space as possible with consideration of indoor daylight quality. Energy savings of the system is assessed through model simulation and physical experimentation. This book should be useful for researchers in daylight research group and professionals in sustainable building design community.
One of Royster's ex-roles was that of Administrative Officer at the Census Office in Hillington Industrial Estate, a 50s style ex-Rolls Royce dominated estate between Glasgow & Paisley with a touch of the original Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here cover about it. Local station: Hillington West. Hillington East was where I would alight for early Huxley rehearsals at Laura's 1930s four-in-a-block flat in the summer of 89, all allotments and gardens sheds: it felt like the 50s. There was a similar vintage aura about the Census office: this was back in the last days of mainly pre-automated clerical working in a structure that housed upwards of one and a half thousand of us. As there were so many bods there, statistics dictated it was always at least one person's birthday. Desk were accordingly festooned with balloons which, again according to the laws of statistical probability, were always popping and causing dyspraxic havoc to my nervous system. All human life was there, I guess albeit striplit and soul-churningly dull - apart the inevitable gossipy rumours and the Friday afternoons when a tangible rush of pheromones pervaded the hall.
I'd rise from my skylit attic bedsit, catch the subway from Kelvinbridge to Govan and from Govan catch the bus to work, the sky still black and the surrounding city sleek in the seven forty-five darkness. "The river of coloured lights, black stuff the city rests its jewels on" (Quote. Douglas Dunn) had yet to change to lifeblood-sapped grey line. Seven forty-five darkness is a great time and place to listen to music (which flowed back then from on a standard issue Walkman). Sometimes I'd listen to my attic room home demos of the period, wishing they'd somehow capture the sound of the city in the way it seemed to me records on the breakfast show could as I listened at low volume in the attic room, getting ready.
A favourite of mine at the time was Kym Sims' eerie yet functional Too Blind To See It which to me was hewn from the stone-clad fabric of urban life, the minimalist organ burble (overlaid on the sparest, least glossy, house piano possible) charged with an ancient Telstarred electricity akin to that harnessed by Tubeway Army's Are "Friends" Electric?
It spoke to me of ethereal drone of Edwardian redbrick substations as they loom up through the foggy ruins of time, to quote a phrase, on the 2 a.m. drunken walk home as mail trains still rumbled under London and their big brothers still ran through the night, rattling on through the works of W.H. Auden, Ronnie Biggs & the late great James Brown. Though not as resplendent as the Royal Mail livery, the bus to Hillington was tall and imposing, its outside painted red, its inside sort of wood-finished with metal bits fastened on. These were the days before FirstBus decided to base its corporate design on the inner city shellsuit and interiors were moulded purple plastic.
The bus station was adjacent to the Pearce Institute where the Huxleys used to rehearse and Brechins' bar (known for some reason as ateh Black Man and occupying the ground floor of a former temperance hall) where we occasionally repaired afterwards. The big red bus was warm enough inside but shuddered mechanically towards Hillington Industrial Estate past the 1910 redbrick Kvaerner Govan shipyard (formerly Fairfields, owned by William Pearce, the husband of the "PI"'s founder ), On wintry starts, I'd see the Elder Park pond looking lightly frosted on grass and ground around with the Elder Park library, opened by andrew Carnegie in 1903, standing proudly behind it. Not far from here stood a pub I'd visit towards the end of the decade where IRA pictures andposters lined the walls, one of which was signed by three terrorists including the killer, in the Maze prison, of a loyalist paramiltary called Billy Wright. Such is Glasgow. We cruised past the old-fashioned Belisha beacons at the corner of the exotically named Aboukir Street, past the vehicle-swallowing mouth of the Clyde Tunnel -opened by the Queen the day that I was born; past the vast Southern General Hospital, sprawling on the left. Though partially modernised, the greater part of could stand in on film with minimum dressing as a War Hospital (either World War) or sunny Sunday morning marching grounds, replete with its barracks-style elevations, running tracks, posh-school clock towers and outhouses like vintage farm buildings.via the White Horse distillery with its appropriately equine statue galloping static at its entrance. These were typically chilly mornings where the fumes from a newly-lit cigarette seem positive and life-affirming, everything around me appeared to be in its rightful place till slowly the bracing briskness would dissipate as the gigantic strip-lit ex-factory loomed and the growing of the grey light unveiled all my usual imperfections. For a magical half hour, though, this was a world shorn of daily underachievement, this was a function metropolis,
The Incra LS Positioner comes with lots of Lexan ruler strips that automate positioning of the fence, making proper dovetailing a piece of measure-free cake. However, you still have to think a little bit. I didn't. These half-blind dovetails came out pretty well, really, except they're out of phase by half a dovetail. If I'd simply made the A and B cuts (as per the DOVN Lexan ruler) on opposite pieces, the boards would meet on their top and bottom edges cleanly, and the gaps you see here would be hidden inside, where they belong. Yet another thing I'll know to look for, and think about next time.
Something else I did was use some wide stock - about 8" - and make a cut with the Incra Miter 5000 sled, such that I could get a nice square check with the Woodpeckers 6" clamping square (CNC machined to perfection), and after a few tests, found out I'd had things set already to perfectly square, and fixed the tools on the gauge back to reflect this. I still don't have that thing exactly where I want it, but at least all my stock cuts for the day were wonderfully, trustably, automatically square.
