Average Effluent Biological Oxygen Demand

Average Effluent Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD5) is the BOD5 concentration of wastewater after it is treated and is leaving a Wastewater Treatment Plant. The concentration should be an average concentration, estimated over a 12-month period. BOD is the measure of the amount of oxygen required by bacteria for stabilizing material that can be decomposed under aerobic conditions. BOD5 is a commonly used determinant of the organic strength of a waste, recording the oxygen demand over a five-day period.

Average Influent Biological Oxygen Demand

Average Influent Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD5) is the BOD5 concentration of wastewater when it is entering a Wastewater Treatment Plant to be treated. The concentration should be an average concentration, estimated over a 12-month period. BOD is the measure of the amount of oxygen required by bacteria for stabilizing material that can be decomposed under aerobic conditions. BOD5 is a commonly used determinant of the organic strength of a waste, recording the oxygen demand over a five day period.

Batch A multi-port charger, such as a universal AA battery charger, that charges batteries in batches (i.e., groups of batteries charged in series). For the purposes of this specification, each of these batches shall be treated as a discrete battery pack.1 View N/A
Battery Charger Type

A device intended to replenish the charge in a rechargeable battery. A battery charger connects to the mains at the power input and connects to the battery at the output. The charger may be comprised of multiple components, in more than one enclosure, and may be fully or partially contained in the Battery Operated End-use Product.

Battery charging system A combination of a Battery Charger and a detachable or integral Battery that is designed to power a Battery Operated End-use Product. View N/A
Battery operated end use product A cordless product or appliance fully powered by the battery at least part of the time. View N/A
Blade system A system comprised of a blade chassis and one or more removable blade servers and/or other units (e.g., blade storage, blade network equipment). Blade systems provide a scalable means for combining multiple blade server or storage units in a single enclosure, and are designed to allow service technicians to easily add or replace (hot-swap) blades in the field.

Bottle type A bottle or reservoir supplies water to the water cooler. View N/A
Broadband modem A device that transmits and receives digitally-modulated analog signals over a wired or optical network as its primary function. The Broadband Modem category does not include devices with integrated Router, Switch, or Access Point functionality. View N/A
Buffered DDR channel Channel or Memory Port connecting a Memory Controller to a defined number of memory devices (e.g. DIMMs) in a computer server. A typical computer server may contain multiple Memory Controllers, which may in turn support one or more Buffered DDR Channels. As such, each Buffered DDR Channel serves only a fraction of the total addressable memory space in a computer server. View N/A
