Converting motors from DC to AC is a painless process," explained Alan Jones from APDS
APDS measured the power consumption of the pumps over 24 hours and analysis showed that using a variable speed drive to achieve a speed reduction of only 6% would reduce energy consumption, and therefore, operational costs by some 17%.
Alan Jones of APDS says: "The drives have been running for eight months now and Ginsters are set to achieve a one year payback on the application.
NGS's "Dual Bioagent Autonomous Networked Detectors (D-BAND)" program combines APDS
technology with PCR for rapid, multiplexed microfluidic analysis.
According to Azure, the parallel hybrid drive and APDS
systems will be delivered in mid-2005.
The lack of communication was attributed to the absence of a link between the HE Humvee's power train and APDS.
A second-generation APDS now being tested at Aberdeen does have a communication link so that the vehicle can better respond to the power demands of APDS.
Recognizing similar conditions and trends as the Savings & Loan challenges, APDS
decided to reintroduce the concept as a creative option for saving foreclosure ravaged neighborhoods.
In receiving the NSP funds, APDS
works with Fulton County to identify foreclosed homes, make any needed repairs or rehabilitation, and sell the homes at affordable prices to homebuyers.
With 20 years experience revitalizing neighborhoods, APDS
is a national firm offering services to assist a range of clients rebuild challenged communities.
Professionals in both the housing and real estate industry are scratching their heads trying to find answers," said Vaughn Irons, Chief Executive Officer of APDS

was formed to address the needs of local governments and housing community activists in their effort to "jump start" and revitalize communities hardest hit by massive foreclosures and the depressed economy.
