EasyHeat Sno Melter cables can either be attached via clips to your roof or strung through rebar and layered under hard surfaces like cement and asphalt to maintain a constant temperature above freezing.Handout photo/ HAROThat familiar refrain of winter is back. Do you hear it?Metal shovels scraping snow-covered driveways and sidewalks. The industrious whir of snow blowers. The grating sound of scrapers chiseling cars out from beneath layers of ice.Snow and ice removal can be back-breaking work. But a host of new tools aims to take the backache out of what can be the bane of many home and car owners' existence each winter."We all get caught like this," says Home Depot spokesman Dan White. "We know it's coming, but we wait until the last minute to get ready. ... If you've already got some of these things installed, they're going to save you a lot of headaches."SNOW-MELTING CABLESAmong the game-changing products in snow removal are cable kits that melt the white stuff off your roof, driveway or sidewalk.EasyHeat Sno Melter cables can be clipped to your roof, or strung through rebar and layered under hard surfaces like cement and asphalt to maintain a constant temperature above freezing."There's no need to shovel, snow blow or spread chemicals," says EasyHeat product manager Romy Sheynis.The roof cables provide an uninterrupted path for melting water to flow down into your gutters. Sidewalk kits cover areas up to 100 square feet with a single cable and must be installed by a professional contractor. A self-contained controller starts heating the surface whenever moisture is present and temperatures are below 38 degrees, according to EasyHeat.Snow mats that melt snow as it falls on your steps and sidewalk are also becoming popular, using similar technology, White says.HIGH-TECH SNOW BLOWERSCordless snow blowers are nothing new. But Snow Joe and Ryobi offer blowers that are both cordless and don't need gas -- a more environmentally friendly way to clear your sidewalk or driveway.The snow blowers are powered by a rechargeable lithium battery. After charging for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, they can run up to 40 minutes."Until now, homeowners faced a lot of intimidation with snow-removal equipment," says Joseph Cohen, Snow Joe's CEO. Battery-powered blowers, he says, "operate just as most electronics do today -- with a simple charge."Looking for something more traditional?Milwaukee-based Briggs & Stratton has introduced a serrated auger on its single-stage snow blowers this season. Called the "SnowShredder," it combines 14 serrated steel teeth with the reinforced rubber paddles typically found in single-stage blowers to give users the power of a two-stage blower and the manoeuvrability of a smaller machine.The new feature is available on the 922EXD and 1222EE models of Snapper, Simplicity and Briggs & Stratton single-stage snow blowers.SCRAPERSScraping snow and ice from your car is unpleasant enough, but in the dark? It can be hard and even dangerous.Enter the Icy Light, a snow scraper with a water-resistant flashlight in the handle. The brainchild of Washington state inventor Jeff Latham, Icy Light is powered by two AA batteries and comes in several colours.Sharper Image carries a heated scraper that melts away stubborn ice and snow after charging for a couple minutes in your car's 12-volt outlet. A built-in rubber squeegee wipes away any excess water, leaving you with a clear view. It also contains a light.Looking for something bigger? Snow Joe offers a snow broom with ice scraper that easily pushes heavy, wet snow off your car hood or roof without scraping the paint. The handle extends up to 49 inches.And in something that looks straight out of the Middle Ages, Bare Ground has an ice- and snow-melting torch that lets you blast away frozen spots with a propane-powered flame. Bonus? According to the listing on Wayfair, it's also great for weed removal in the summer.

What Are the Advantages of LED Light Source DLP Splicing Products
As a new large screen video technology, LED light source DLP splicing products have always been one of the key industrial innovations concerned by the industry. The adoption of sub era light source LED technology is not only a simple change in light source technology, but also will fundamentally change the practical performance of DLP splicing products, and even create many new application modes. So, what unexpected new surprises will the new LED light source DLP splicing bring to industry customers?Lower system cost of ownershipThe first significant change in the application of LED light source to DLP splicing wall products is that the cost of users is significantly reduced. Although the use of LED technology will increase the first investment of DLP splicing wall project by 30%, the service life of LED light source reaches 60000 hours, which is about 20 times that of traditional mercury lamp. In other words, the customer's lifetime hit on the DLP splicing wall will save at least 20 bulb replacement costs. This cost can not only offset the increase of DLP splicing unit cost caused by LED technology, but also "save a lot of investment".Another feature of LED light source technology is that the three primary colors emit light independently. This makes the DLP projection system no longer need the previous color wheel beam splitter. As a mechanical operation product, the maintenance and replacement frequency of color wheel is also an important part of customer cost. Although color wheel components are not the core consumables of DLP splicing wall, the economy of LED light source products without color wheel can not be ignored.The long-life LED light source also greatly reduces the maintenance frequency of DLP splicing wall. The annual maintenance quantity can be reduced by at least 50%. This will also serve as an important "money saving" node and become one of the important added values for customers to purchase LED light source products. In addition, as an efficient light source product, LED will also bring higher luminous efficiency and higher light utilization, thus reflecting another part of the "low-cost" characteristics of saving electricity.Higher system reliabilityLED light source products are solid-state cold light source products. The utility model has the advantages of high working efficiency, low heat generation and less accidental damage in solid state. The traditional mercury lamp light source has the same vulnerability as an ordinary electric bulb. Its product temperature is very high in the high-light working state, and it is more likely to be damaged, burned or burst due to accidents. The solid-state emission of LED light source significantly increases the stability of the light source itself.Different from traditional mercury lamp products, LED light source is driven by low-voltage DC pulse. The power supply part does not contain high voltage and high current components, so the service life and stability of the power supply are more controllable. Combined with the natural luminescence of the three primary colors of the LED light source, there is no need for mechanical color wheel components for light splitting, which makes the LED light source more stable than the traditional mercury lamp in terms of power supply, control and light splitting.The three primary colors of LED light source work independently, which also makes the whole machine can still display the picture in the lack of color even if a "bulb" fails. This is in sharp contrast to the situation that the traditional single lamp DLP splicing unit cannot work once the bulb is burned out. It can display without color, so that once the light source appears unexpectedly, the LED light source can minimize the loss of customers to the greatest extent, or even no loss. Compared with the simple single lamp DLP splicing unit, the reliability of LED light source products is closer to the dual lamp backup system.Green environmental protection and low carbonLED light source technology is a famous green environmental protection technology. The characteristics of its semiconductor process make it easier to control toxic metals. Unlike the traditional mercury lamp, once damaged, it is likely to cause the leakage of toxic elements in the internal mercury lamp. As a semiconductor element, LED light source can also be recycled, and important metal elements can be recycled in the smelting process again.In addition, LED light source products are also light source products with high luminous efficiency.Under the same brightness conditions, it has lower energy consumption. Moreover, the LED light source emits light in digital pulse mode with independent three primary colors. The LED light source works only when the DLP light valve chip DMD needs light of a certain color. This is quite different from the continuous ignition mode of the traditional mercury lamp. LED light source does not work continuously. It only makes valuable luminescence when needed, which also makes it better meet the needs of low-carbon and environmental protection for future economic development.Bright colors make the picture more gorgeous
