  • Patent number: 7923412
    Abstract: A dye ink or a pigmented ink application process using, for example, any one of flexographic printing, flood coating, tinting, or other suitable technique or process to add a colored area adjacent to a thermal ink layer of a thermal material is disclosed. The colored area provides a background color, such that upon application of the heat source, a thermal image appears as being imaged onto the colored area. The process can be used to make heat activated direct thermal labels or thermal paper rolls, including cash register-type rolls, poster printer format rolls, etc. The process permits a thermal material including a thermal ink layer to be produced in various colors in relatively small print runs using conventional equipment.

  • Patent number: 7852997
    Abstract: A URL adapter for a Web browser that enables the integration of telephone numbers into a web browser's address line for parsing as a URI. The URL adapter bypasses traditional search hook functions to identify potential telephone numbers. The URL adapter has access to a name server for translating names entered into the browser into telephone numbers. The URL adapter can also parse Web pages to self-identify telephone numbers.

  • Patent number: 7775712
    Abstract: A modified grid cabinet or “bucky” assembly intended for use with a digital imaging system and dimensioned and structured to retrofit a conventional film type x-ray device originally intended for use in combination with a conventional film bucky. The bucky assembly includes a frame having an at least partially hollow interior and a tray movably connected to the frame and slidably positionable between an outwardly extending open position and an inwardly disposed closed position. The tray is structured to support and position a digital sensor into an imaging position relative to the operative image capturing components of the digital imaging system. The tray includes a retaining assembly disposed and structured to removably retain the digital sensor in any a plurality of operative orientations including a portrait orientation and a landscape orientation.

  • Patent number: 7635450
    Abstract: A system for disinfecting a fluid containing microorganisms or chemical contaminants includes a plurality of photocatalyst surfaces secured to a solid surface upon which a fluid to be disinfected contacts. A structure for removing a portion of the photogenerated electrons is in electrical contact with the photocatalyst layer, wherein an electron-hole recombination rate involving the photogenerated electrons and holes is reduced, thus increasing the removal rate of microorganisms or chemical contaminants from the fluid. The system can include a source of photons having a wavelength corresponding to a band gap energy of the photocatalyst to illuminate the photocatalyst layer. The invention can be used in air supply registers of a heating, ventilating and air conditioning system, or in air ducts, or used to disinfect wall coverings, floor coverings, envelopes, packages, and clothing articles.

  • Patent number: 7525297
    Abstract: An impedance-compensated current transformer comprising a primary winding, a power source electrically coupled through the primary winding; a secondary winding magnetically coupled to the first primary winding, the secondary winding having a secondary winding impedance and a secondary winding resistance; and an impedance-compensation circuit electrically coupled across the secondary winding; wherein the impedance-compensation circuit actively reflects to the secondary winding a virtual impedance which is equal in magnitude and opposite in polarity to the secondary winding impedance.

  • Patent number: 7364440
    Abstract: An electrical connector for providing a watertight electrical connection between a flat, single or multi-traced, rigid and/or flexible printed circuit and a separate electronics unit. The electrical connector is comprised of a plug having one or more keyhole-shaped slots which serve to mechanically secure the connection between the one or more traces of the circuit and one or more fixed pins on the body of the separate electronics unit. The plug is placed over the one or more pins such that the pins are inserted up through the wider portion of the slots and in a push or pull action, the pins are slid into the narrower portion of the slot such that the pins are locked into place. The conductive traces are then secured into contact with the electrical contacts of the separate electronics device.
