  • Patent number: 5152599
    Abstract: A contact strip lighting system for vehicular truck bodies, semi-trailer or trailer truck bodies and other installations where a plurality of lights are to be connected to a power source. The contact strip lighting system of this invention includes a laminated contact tape which consists of an inner or bottom layer having adhesive material for attachment to a truck body or other mounting surface and being constructed of insulating material to insulate an encapsulated conductor strip from the mounting surface. An intermediate layer is in the form of a single flat metallic conductor strip insulated between the bottom layer and top layer of the laminated strip. An outer or top layer is constructed of insulating material and is used to insulate the conductor strip and provided with a reflective outer surface to enable approaching vehicle operators to more readily see the truck body when the contact strip is attached thereto.

  • Patent number: 5151933
    Abstract: A key telephone system with a re-dialing feature has a memory with two memory areas. One of the two memory areas is provided for an outside-line call, and the other is provided for an internal-line call to a particular extension. Each memory area memorizes a dialed number therein and replaces a number of the last intended call, previously present in the memory area, with the most recently dialed number. A re-dialing push-button automatically retrieves the number of a last intended outside-line call, memorized in the outside-line memory area, when actuated following a selection of an outside-line call, or the number of a last intended inside-line call to a particular extension, memorized in the extension memory area, when actuated following a selection of an internal-line call to a particular extension.

  • Patent number: 5150843
    Abstract: Apparatus for processing solid waste includes a chamber for receiving the waste, which may be any contaminated or non-contaminated waste including paper, plastics, cloth, metal and hospital sharps, and a ram for forcing the waste, to which germicide may be added, into contact with a plurality of cutting heads. The cutting heads which shred, shear and cut the waste are each mounted on an elongated rotating shaft. Each cutting head includes a plurality of parallel cutting blades separated by spacers. Adjacent cutting heads mesh together so that cutting blades of one cutting head interdigitate with spacers of an adjacent cutting head. A pair of curved doors close the chamber closely adjacent the cutting heads while the waste is being cut, and are opened for releasing the cut waste. The doors include elongated parallel grooves alternately for receiving the cutting edges of the cutting blades and for receiving the spacers.

  • Patent number: 5151617
    Abstract: A superconducting logic circuit is configured by using two kinds of input-output type quantum flux parametrons (QFP), that is, a periodically excited input-output type QFP and an arbitrarily excited input-output type QFP. The periodically excited QFP is excited by periodically varying exciting magnetic flux to amplify a binary magnetic flux. The arbitrarily excited QFP is excited by magnetic flux output signals of upstream QFPs.

  • Patent number: 5148753
    Abstract: A transit system is disclosed having a guideway, with the primary of a linear induction motor located at spaced intervals therealong. A train of vehicles is positioned to travel along the guideway and includes the secondary of the linear induction motor. The secondary extends along and between the vehicles in spaced relation with respect to the primary so as to encounter a magnetic field emanating from the primary to cause a thrust to be generated in the secondary. The secondary thereby provides an even distribution of the thrust along the frame, while reducing the loss of power when the train encounters corners and hills.
