Dickson Means Data.
And we mean business too. We know that products, processes, buildings, and monitoring application is vital to your business. For that reason, Dickson has been designing and manufacturing reliable data logging devices for over 80 years and continues to do so today.
Zero and Span Adjustments & Calibrations.
When Dickson is calibrating a data logger or chart recorder we can make one of two adjustments: Zero and Span adjustments. So, what are the differences between the two?
A Zero adjustment is making the same change across the entire scale. For example, if you adjust -10 degrees up two degrees then you are also adjusting 78 up two degrees. Zero adjustments are good if your device is always used at a specific tem -perature (like in a freezer). This process allows the device to be extremely accurate
at a given point. The downside of this process is that if a unit is out of the stated accuracy at -10, but not 78 then the same change is made across the entire scale, thus bringing the 78 out of its stated accuracy.
The solution for this situation is a Span adjustment. A span calibration consists of precise adjustments at multiple points. This means that if -10 is reading 2 degrees off and 78 is only reading ½ a degree off then -10 will be adjusted by 2 degrees and 78 will be adjusted by only ½ a degree. This will ensure the device is within it’s stated accuracy across the entire scale, but may not be as accurate at a given point as a Zero adjustment. Span calibrations are ideal when you are monitoring temperatures that vary across the entire scale, for example, monitoring a freezing and thawing cycle.

عزا رئيس لجنة تجار المواشي في غرفة جدة سليمان الجابري، ارتفاع أسعار اللحوم الحمراء إلى عدم وجود دعم للأغنام من قبل الحكومة، وقال لـ«الحياة»،: «إن أسعار الأغنام غالية من بلد المنشأ وليس لنا علاقة بزيادة أسعارها، إذ إن هذا الغلاء عالمي، والأسعار تزيد كل يوم».
وأضاف: «الحكومة قامت بدعم الأعلاف والشعير وغيرها، إلا الأغنام لم يتم دعمها، ونقوم بالاستيراد من الكويت لأن الحكومة الكويتية تدعم الأغنام، ويتم الاستيراد حالياً من السودان والصومال، ولا توجد دول غيرهما يتم الاستيراد منهما في الوقت الحالي».
من جانبه، أكد رئيس مجلس إدارة مجموعة شركات أبناء عبدالله العلي المنجم، علي بن عبدالله المنجم، ارتفاع أسعار اللحوم المجمدة من بلد المصدر مثل البرازيل وغيرها من الدول الأخرى، وقال: «إننا نعمل على استيراد اللحوم المجمدة من جميع الدول، ونحرص على جودة ونوعية اللحوم التي نستوردها، ولكن الارتفاع الحاصل في الأسعار عالمي».

ATHENS — An emergency meeting of European leaders in Brussels on Thursday to discuss another
Greek bailout will decide the future of the euro. If they do what they have done so often since the
crisis first began in Greece some 18 months ago, they will simply have kicked the can down the road.
Contagion is almost inevitable. A problem that began in the periphery has now moved to the center,
and while Spain and Italy have been the most shaken, other nations will almost surely be affected in
