Alarms

Alarms and it’s types 

               Alarms are used to alert people to potential danger. However, they are useless if people don’t recognize the alarm and know what it means. They should know how to respond to a particular alarm. Whether it is a family function, a school, or a place of business, an alarm should be in place to alert people. These days, most alarms are electronic in nature and it helps to understand their components and functionality. In this article we will look at that and also some types of alarms.

Components of alarms:

Electronic alarm systems are made up of components designed to detect, determine and deter threatening situations.

  • Motion Sensors:

    They can detect movement in a room or a corridor.

  • Glass Break Detectors:

    They are designed to constantly listen for the sound of breaking glass. When it detects the sound pattern caused by shattering glass, it sends an electronic signal to the alarm control panel.

 TYPES OF ALARMS

  1. Carbon Monoxide Alarms

Carbon monoxide is an odourless, invisible gas that can lead to poisoning. These alarms use electro-chemical sensing technology to alert you.

  1. Burglary

A thief breaks the glass of your shop! Instantly a high pitched wail sounds in the air! Almost every house or shop abroad has burglar alarms. Unfortunately, the practise is not very common here in India.

  1. Fire

Smoke and fire alarms warn people of the presence of fire in a building. Some alarms have the feature of alerting the nearest fire department. Many places, such as schools and college dormitories, perform drills to practice what to do in case of a fire alarm.

  1. Flood

It has nothing to do with warning you of the infamous Mumbai floods. Water damage from a faulty water heater can be just as damaging to a home as a fire. Flood alarms sense the presence of water and can be programmed to shut the water off when it is nearing a flood zone.

  1. Weather Alarms

U.S faces tornadoes, hurricanes and horrific forest fires every year. It is extremely important to be able to recognize alarms that warn of severe weather. Many cities have public alarm systems that sound informing people to take shelter. The National Weather Service issues severe weather warnings through television and radio broadcasting systems.

        We’ve all seen Charlie’s Angels break into top security vaults and moving out with groundbreaking pieces of technology. They protect our life and our property!

Top Management Colleges in India

Earthquakes

Earthquakes: Fun Facts

You must’ve seen videos of buildings shaking and objects rattling when an earthquake occurs. But do you know what an earthquake is? In this article let’s discover what are earthquakes phenomena actually all about.

The earth is covered by tectonic plates which are floating land masses. When the plates shift, seismic waves travel through the earth causing earthquakes.

Earthquakes

Earthquakes

Let’s look at some facts about earthquakes:

  • The most powerful earthquake ever recorded was in Valdivia, Chile. It had a magnitude of 9.5!
  • Earthquake prone countries like Japan build houses that react well to earthquakes. Good engineering practices can help stop buildings collapsing when an earthquake occurs.
  • San Francisco is moving toward Los Angeles at the rate of 2 inches per year — the same pace as the growth of your fingernails! The cities will meet in several million years!
  • You’d think that the Himalayas would be becoming shorter due to global warming. Contrarily, they are growing taller! The Indian plate pushes against the Eurasia plate making the Himalayas increase in height. Mountaineers will have to climb for longer to reach the peak in a few hundred years.
  • The epicentre is the point on the surface directly above where the earthquake originated.
  • Seismometers measure the magnitude of earthquakes.
  • There are about 500,000 earthquakes a year around the world.
  • A city in Chile moved 10 feet when the massive 8.8 magnitude earthquake struck on 27th Feb 2010! The tear in Earth’s crust shifted the city of Concepción 10 feet to the west.
  • Earth’s bulge was trimmed a little by the 2004 Indonesian earthquake of magnitude 9.0! Earth’s midsection bulges as compared to the measurement from pole-to-pole. The huge land displacement caused a small reduction in the bulge.
  • The Pacific Ring of Fire is the most geologically active region of Earth.
  • Quakes on one side of Earth can affect the other side! Seismologists studying the massive 2004 earthquake found that the quake had weakened at least a portion of California’s famed San Andreas Fault.
  • The earthquake that hit the Tohoku region of Japan had a magnitude of 9.0 and killed over 15000 people!
  • The deadliest earthquake ever struck in Shansi, China killing 830,000 people!
Earthquakes

Earthquakes

It is an earthquake that is thought to have caused the December 26, 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.It is thought to have had the the energy of 23,000 Hiroshima-type atomic bombs!! The rupture was more than 600 miles long. It displaced the seafloor by yards. Trillions of tons of rock moved, causing the massive earthquake.

Earthquakes are equally deadly and awe inspiring. We see the real power of nature.
