The necessary blending of different coloured products can then be accomplished in-line, eliminating the need for off-line storage. Conventionally, colours are injected into the extruder barrel to ensure good mixing but this results in very slow transitions when the colour is changed, leading to considerable waste before a correctly coloured new product emerges.
Meanwhile, you can take advantage of the faster speeds and ever higher capacities of the wide range of off-line storage devices, whether it is network, desktop, mobile or USB key.
When it comes to high end workstations or high-performance, cost-effective storage for near-line and off-line storage, SATA offers what storage managers need to manage their company's information.
Archived content can be stored in the repository or be moved to an off-line storage medium.
Its features include integration with existing or newly acquired PACS resources; working directly with digital modalities to capture, store and archive image data in non-PACS environments; association of patient images and document EMRs; maintenance of all relevant files online; automatic migration of infrequently accessed data to near- or off-line storage per administrator-defined policies; search and location of specific patient records in near- or off-line storage without migrating data back to online storage resources until files are opened; and retrieval of requested files from near-line storage typically in a matter of seconds and from off-line storage in the minutes it takes to load media into an autochanger.
AMASS provides users with enormous storage capacity and cost savings with the look and feel of a hard disk, transforming devices typically considered "off-line storage" into truly online direct-access mass storage.
The unit also provides recorded video activity scanning and video motion detection; tamperproof video records with video authentication; ATM and POS data integration; and fault-tolerant off-line storage for long-term video archiving.
Multiple methods and product types can be set up and run in minutes with different output options, such as HPLC, UV or off-line storage. Accessories include sonication and the EasyFill Sample Collection Module for the automatic collection and storage of processed samples.
Due to inadequate filtration & carbon treatment, the solution must be periodically transferred to an off-line storage tank and the process tank must then be cleaned.
Excess flows can be retained in storage tanks, in deep large-diameter storage tunnels, or in off-line storage basins, but a low-cost alternative is to employ the unused capacity of existing sewer lines.
This file may be copied with an integral compact flash card writer for off-line storage. The device features 0.02 sensitivity with high-quantum efficiency, a -40[degrees]C to 900[degrees]C thermal dynamic range (with an option of 2,000[degrees]C), 14-bit capability, data output via IEEE 1394 Fire Wire PC interface, and a hand-held mouse controller.
