  • Patent number: 8348457
    Abstract: In a lighting device, a first LED is formed by sealing a blue LED element by a first resin, the first resin having a first phosphor included in the first resin so as to raise a correlation color temperature of an emitted light color; and a second LED is formed by sealing a blue LED element by a second resin, the second resin having a second phosphor included in the second resin so as to lower a correlation color temperature of an emitted light color. The lighting device emits light from white light of a color having a first correlation color temperature to white light of a color having a second correlation color temperature, and the first correlation color temperature is higher than the second correlation color temperature. Consequently, various tones of white light can be more easily adjusted and controlled over a long period.

  • Patent number: 8347669
    Abstract: A securing mechanism cooperating with a device that is to be secured, having a closing part, which can be slipped onto a free end region of the device. Locking elements are rotatably mounted in the closing part and engage into an annular groove of the device by an engaging element to lock it, except in one defined position of rotation. An adjusting member engages in an end region of the locking elements accessible from outside. A spring presses the locking element against a contact area of the closing part in the direction of the axis of rotation thereof forming a brake. A catching structure provided with a plurality of catching points is disposed on an annular surface of the locking elements. A catching element engages into the catching points when the respective locking element is rotated, at least when the closing part is tilted.

  • Patent number: 8349773
    Abstract: In a slide member in which an overlay is provided on a slide receiving surface of a base member, the overlay is formed by attaching a mixed solid lubricant on the slide receiving surface of the base member. The mixed solid lubricant is made by mixing a large amount of hydrogen containing solid lubricant which contains a large amount of hydrogen, and a small amount of hydrogen containing solid lubricant which contains a smaller hydrogen amount than the large amount of hydrogen containing lubricant. Thereby, a lubricant absence region where the solid lubricant is absent in a thickness direction is formed on the slide receiving surface of the base member after sliding, and an oxidized portion where the base member is oxidized is formed in the lubricant absence region.

  • Patent number: 8351167
    Abstract: A current limiting device (30, 40, 50, 60) comprising for each phase of an AC supply a closed magnetic core (31) of reduced volume and mass having first and second pairs of opposing limbs (32a, 32b; 33a, 33b), and at least one AC coil (35a, 35b) enclosing opposing limbs (33a, 33b) of the magnetic core (31) and adapted for series connection with a load. A superconducting DC bias coil (34) encloses a limb) (32a, 32b) of the magnetic core (31) for saturating each of the opposing limbs (33a, 33b) in opposite directions by the bias coil (34). Under fault conditions, the AC flux in at least one limb counteracts the DC bias flux, bringing the limb out of saturation. Preferably, current is reduced in the DC bias coils thus bringing both opposing limbs of the core out of saturation.

  • Patent number: 8349189
    Abstract: Method for the preparation of at least one compound with biological properties from blood, where said method is performed in sealed tubes at a pressure below atmospheric pressure, thereby reducing or preventing the bacterial contamination of the compound through handling. The method comprises the repetition, for as many times as is required, of the following steps: connecting a second container that is vacuum-sealed to an extraction device connected in turn to a first container that contains blood separated into fractions, waiting for a period of time until the required fraction(s) is/are transferred, and removing said second container, with it thus being possible to obtain several second containers with different compounds for different medical applications including biological therapies. The steps may be performed in a closed system, without removing the caps of the containers, or alternatively the first container may be opened prior to the introduction of the extraction device.

  • Patent number: 8339636
    Abstract: The respective jobs of copying, printing, scanning, and faxing processed by an integrated application are unitarily divided into four job steps. A package of function modules selectively used in the respective jobs is classified into four groups of input, create, edit, and output function modules according to the division. A data format is unified into bitmap by a create function module, and the bitmap data is processed by an edit function module for pagination or aggregation, etc. In response to receiving setting information and a job code, a job controlling module creates job step control blocks and writes the information therein to create a job. Each of job step controlling (JSC) modules to starts a function module for each page, and after the completion thereof, creates a thread control block for the next downstream side JSC module.
