  • Patent number: 6125234
    Abstract: Electrical apparatus for thermal processing of food includes a casing which has a transparent portion for viewing the food disposed within the casing. At least one heating element is mounted within the casing for heating the food, the heating element including a heat resistant and mechanically rigid transparent first substrate having a first surface which faces the food and a second opposite facing surface. At least one electrical resistance element is disposed on the second surface, the at least one electrical resistance element being connected to a source of electrical current. At least one second transparent substrate is disposed adjacent the second surface, the at least one second transparent substrate including a transparent infrared reflective coating. Thus, the food disposed within the casing is viewable from the exterior of the casing through at least the first substrate while the food is being heated by the first substrate.

  • Patent number: 5939961
    Abstract: An electric locking device includes at least one main switch with a make contact, one secondary magnetic flexible leaf switch with a break contact, at least one auxiliary relay including at least one make contact, and an external control member comprising at least one permanent magnet. The main switch directly controls the relay coil after the secondary switch has been opened by the presence of a magnet in the control member, and the secondary switch, when it closes again, shorts the relay coil. This occurs when the control member and the magnet moves away. The assembly may be constructed such that the approach of the control member, by the presence of the magnet, first causes the opening of the secondary switch, then the closing of the main switch. The control member, during its retraction, releases the main switch that opens before the secondary switch closes.
