  • Patent number: 7275694
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a portable bar code reading device that generates electronic representations of a substrate having a bar code symbol disposed thereon. A portable bar code reading device according to the invention can incorporate a solid state image sensor and can generate first and second electronic representations. The first and second electronic representations generated by a portable bar code reading device in one embodiment represent first and second regions of the substrate that are of different sizes. A portable bar code reading device having a memory and a trigger can be configured to attempt to decode a bar code symbol by processing of an electronic representation and further can be configured so that the first and second electronic representations are stored into the memory after a single depressing of the trigger.

  • Patent number: 7186127
    Abstract: An integrated seal assembly and a connector incorporating the seal assembly for connecting a coaxial cable to an externally threaded port. The seal assembly includes a bellows-type seal having an elastically deformable tubular body and a plurality of sealing surfaces, and an integral joint-section intermediate an anterior end and a posterior end that assists in the axial deformation of the seal in response to axially-directed force. One of the sealing surfaces is made to engage a corresponding surface of an internally threaded nut. The nut and attached seal form an integral seal assembly. A coaxial cable connector includes a connector body. One end of the body attaches a coaxial cable, the seal assembly being rotatably attached to the other end. The connector is engagable with an externally threaded port via the internally threaded nut component of the connector.

  • Patent number: 7174716
    Abstract: A machine designed as a centrifugal compressor is applied as an organic rankine cycle turbine by operating the machine in reverse. In order to accommodate the higher pressures when operating as a turbine, a suitable refrigerant is chosen such that the pressures and temperatures are maintained within established limits. Such an adaptation of existing, relatively inexpensive equipment to an application that may be otherwise uneconomical, allows for the convenient and economical use of energy that would be otherwise lost by waste heat to the atmosphere.

  • Patent number: PP17646
    Abstract: A distinct female cultivar of Salix purpurea×Salix miyabeana named ‘Millbrook’, characterized by rapid stem growth producing 9% more woody biomass than one of its parents (‘SX64’) and 2% more biomass than a current production cultivar (‘SV1’). ‘Millbrook’ produced greater than 2-fold more stem biomass than two other current production cultivars, ‘SX67’ and ‘SX61’. ‘Millbrook’ can be planted from dormant stem cuttings, produces multiple stems after coppice, and the stem biomass can be harvested when the plant is dormant. In the spring following harvest, the plant will re-sprout very vigorously, producing new stems that can be harvested after two to four years of growth. This harvest cycle can be repeated several times. The stem biomass can be chipped and burned as a source of renewable energy, generating heat and/or electricity. ‘Millbrook’ displays a low incidence of rust disease.
