Many electronic devices can make a business run more smoothly. This includes cash registers, security systems, landlines, and the internet. Although these might seem obvious, there are some less obvious electronic devices that could also be essential for business owners to have. These machines include laser coding, depaneling, and conformal coating equipment.
These types of electronic devices are used in a variety of manufacturing and production processes, including the warehousing of microscopic components like IC chips and resistors. The stock management errors are possible if these components are not clearly identified and visually examined. Installing handheld computers that connect information about the product to shelf information will ensure a smooth and error-free process and increase the speed of inspections and shipping.
Other important electronics for commercial use include power generators that are that supply electric energy, which convert DC electricity into other sources of power such as AC and diesel. These types of electronic machines are utilized for domestic and industrial use.
While none of them were computers in the sense of a computer however the practical knowledge gained from the development of business machines in the 19th century was instrumental in helping to create the foundations for modern computing. It was not until the mid-20th century that Alan Turing and others produced an operational machine that was capable of carrying out the logical functions. The machine, dubbed the Colossus was constructed at Bletchley Park with great secrecy to crack the codes and ciphers generated by German electromechanical devices, such as the Enigma and Geheimschreiber.
