  • Patent number: 8336398
    Abstract: A pipe connection includes a main body, an inner sleeve, a water inlet connector, a water outlet connector, a circuit board, a control panel, at least one battery, a magnetically activated detector, an impeller, and a magnetic member. In operation, when the water flows through the impeller, the impeller is rotated, and the magnetic member is moved to pass by the detector intermittently so that the detector can transmit a detected signal to the circuit board which can calculate the rotation speed of the magnetic member so as to obtain the water flow rate. Thus, the pipe connection can calculate and indicate the water flow rate in the pipe so that when the flow rate of the output water from the pipe reaches a preset value, the user can shut the water flow to regulate and save the water flow.

  • Patent number: 8324790
    Abstract: A high illumination LED bulb includes a transparent lamp holder and a transparent reflective envelope having an inner face coated with a reflective membrane having light transmittance characteristic. A chamber is defined between the transparent lamp holder and the transparent reflective envelope and receives an actuator, a radiator and a light emitting module electrically connected to the actuator. The light emitting module includes a substrate disposed on the radiator and at least one LED disposed on the substrate. Light radiated from the LED is transmitted to produce superior projection beam by the transparent reflective envelope and reflected to produce inferior projection beam by the reflective membrane.
