Where to store your passwords and how

Whether banking, shopping, mailing, streaming music or TV, forums or social networks – passwords are in demand almost everywhere. As secure as possible, of course. And in order to guarantee the highest possible level of confidence, i.e. confidentiality of your data, you should not only choose a password that is as secure as possible, but also a password that is as individual as possible for each individual account. But be careful! One thing should be clear to everyone: there is no one hundred percent guarantee of security. However, one can and should try to make the security layers around one’s own sensitive data as impenetrable as possible in order to get as close as possible to the optimal protection. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to do this.

TDLS8000: Maintenance-free, SIL2 certified and explosion-proof

In almost every chemical production plant, it is always necessary to store various substances in containers or tank farms. Depending on the chemical substance, this can from time to time result in an explosion hazard. For this reason, elementary protection against a possible explosion must be provided. In the best case scenario, this should be done in such a way that no explosive gas mixture can form in the gas phase of the container. In the age of ever-increasing safety requirements, a current safety assessment may make it necessary to actually record the oxygen content – especially if the device in question has been classified as a SIL (safety integrity level) application.  This is exactly where Yokogawa’s TDLS8000 laser comes into play.
