If you are in the market for a device that performs a job important to your industry, but cannot afford the high costs of new equipment or custom building a device, then consider a refurbished Technical Device. A refurbished version of any of our devices is made with new precision-engineered parts and is tested to stringent performance standards. Refurbished items are tested for both function and quality by both the manufacturer and a qualified outside third party. All refurbished models carry a limited lifetime warranty. Read on for a general description of all our products, services and parts.
A device driver is a piece of software written to interact with a specific device. Drivers are essential for hardware devices to interact with software applications. In the computer industry, drivers are used to communicating between various hardware components. For example, a device driver would allow a keyboard to detect when a mouse is placed in front of it, or a digital camera to detect movement. Thus, drivers provide a method for interaction between hardware and software, enabling you to do things like control a digital camera from your laptop, or use a handheld GPS device without getting lost in a foreign city.
The technical writing industry is particularly vulnerable to product obsolescence. Thus, technical communications firms often need to maintain a close relationship with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), as well as with service providers, consumers, and governments. As a technical writer who creates technical writing articles about products and other topics related to your clients’ products, it is essential that you are aware of technical issues that may arise in the future. To this end, a number of companies will test your articles before publishing them. In many cases, you will receive a final copy of your article and will be given an unconditional copy permit to distribute the article free of charge. This is a crucial aspect of good quality technical communication work.
Another aspect of good technical writing involves accurate and precise descriptions. No matter how complicated a technological item or application may be, detailed descriptions of the most minute details are required. In fact, the majority of people who are searching for information online have a very limited understanding of technical terms and terminology, so inaccurate and ambiguous descriptions are a major turnoff. Detailed descriptions should provide sufficient information for a reader to determine the functionality of a device or software application and should avoid describing an item in general terms. Technical writing is generally not limited to describing specific functions or features, but should instead focus on providing clear and concise descriptions of technical topics.
As an example, if you were writing a technical description of a piece of hardware, such as a laser printer, you would likely want to describe each of its component parts and their functions. However, if you were to simply list the device’s physical characteristics, you might overlook important factors such as its construction (i.e., is it plastic or metal), its internal components (i.e., what parts are present on the board, what types of wires are connecting each component, etc.) and its networking capabilities (i.e., is the cable attached to the printer card in the correct position?). By providing your readers with detailed descriptions that accurately portray your technical topic, you will gain credibility and more useful feedback.
Finally, another key characteristic of good technical writing is to provide clear, precise, unambiguous, and complete technical descriptions. For example, if you were describing the operation of a laser printer to a computer, you would most likely want to begin your description with an explanation of how the device works, perhaps with a few examples of its uses. Following this would be more useful information, such as how the printer actually operates, how it works with ink cartridges and how the color range of the printer’s laser is adjusted. When writing technical descriptions of products and applications, clear and precise descriptions of component parts, functions, and networking capabilities are critical to ensuring that the end product receives the proper amount of attention and that the system or application meets the specific needs and requirements.
