  • Patent number: 4472022
    Abstract: A vortex flowmeter including a single optical fiber into one end of which a light signal can be transmitted from a source to the other fiber end where it is vortex modulated. Modulated light at the other end is then reflected to a receiver back along the same optical fiber. Relative movement between the other fiber end and a reflector serves to modulate the light signal. Embodiments are disclosed in which the other fiber end moves and the reflector is stationary. In the alternative case, the other fiber end is stationary and the reflector moves.

  • Patent number: 4467232
    Abstract: A DC machine (motor, etc.) with permanent field magnets arranged in the stator frame and designed as shells. The shell of each pole structure consists of two or more annular segments arranged one behind the other in the axial direction and staggered with respect to one another in the circumferential direction. The staggered arrangement reduces the excitation flux area between the poles and, thus, diminishes the detent torque of the rotor.

  • Patent number: 4466695
    Abstract: An electro-optical arrangement for transmitting signal data as modulated light energy across a rotating annular interface. The modulated light beams according to the system are projected axially within an annular cavity and thence outward through a redundant window arrangement. Another annular member rotatable with respect to the first one includes a plurality of closer-spaced but narrower second windows and a light-to-electric transducer associated with each second window. The spacing of the second windows is such that there is always light communication between the first and second window groups. The system is particularly adapted to digital modulation of the light energy.

  • Patent number: 4463326
    Abstract: A microwave combiner/divider circuit instrumented in stripline medium and therefore planar in form. Circuit traces are produced by etching of a standard microwave printed circuit board having a conductive ground plane or base plate and a layer of low-loss insulation over which a copper layer is provided. A common signal port feeds a division point through a capacitive stub and a two-stage, ring-type impedance matching circuit. The multiple circuit traces emanating from the division point are arranged so that N individual branch ports are connected thereto. The stripline circuitry between the division point and the branch ports provide compensation for phase reversal. Resistors for branch port isolation connected within the stripline circuitry such that for equal loads or equal power sources connected to the branch ports (divider or combiner applications, respectively) zero currents flow in these resistors and they are therefore not required to provide a large power dissipating capability.

  • Patent number: 4446744
    Abstract: An ultrasonic flowmeter arrangement has a pair of electroacoustic transmit/receive transducers located in opposite walls of a pipe, the transducers being longitudinally displaced and facing one another, thus forming a bidirectional transmission path oblique to the direction of fluid flow in the pipe. Each transducer is driven by a voltage controlled oscillator operating sometimes at nominally the same frequency. In one case the oscillator outputs are divided down separately to provide two different transmission frequencies. Filters apply to phase comparison means corresponding transmitted and received frequencies. The outputs of the phase comparison means provide feedback control signals for the oscillators. The oscillator outputs are fed to a mixing means to derive a difference frequency signal as a measure of the rate of fluid flow in the pipe.

  • Patent number: 4441372
    Abstract: An elongate body extends as a bar across a fluid flow passage and has a vortex shedding tapered head portion pointing upstream and a tail portion downstream of the head. The head has an axial length equal to or less than half the head width. The tail has a width less than head width throughout its length. A sensor is arranged downstream of the head. For example, the sensor may be in the tail portion of the body such as to sense the vortices produced alternately on the side surfaces. The frequency output of the sensor is proportional to the relative speed between the elongate body and the fluid. The arrangement can be used as a fluid flowmeter or a ship's log.

  • Patent number: 4428695
    Abstract: A cartridge which contains two spools. The supply spool has wound about it a printing ribbon and the take-up spool being used for wrapping the used ribbon. The cartridge has a ribbon exit at one location and a ribbon entry at a remote location to define a path for the ribbon to pass therealong. Two drive gears are engaged with each other and a pressure roller. The drive gears are located and their lower portions are configured to engage the respective drive shafts of various printers. When the first drive gear is driven by a printer, the second gear, which includes the drive wheel, rotates in the opposite direction of the drive shaft of the printer. When the second gear is driven, the integral drive wheel rotates in the same direction as the drive shaft of the printer. The pressure roller is provided with internal flexible spokes, or springs, and provides a self-adjusting bias against the drive wheel to drive the ribbon and provides an extremely efficient pinching action.
