  • Patent number: 9873063
    Abstract: A throw toy includes a generally disc-shaped elastomeric base having a central hub and a skirt encircling and extending outwardly from the central hub. A plurality of projecting fingers extend away from a first surface of the base for stabilizing the throw toy in flight. The base may be biased to a semi-spherical shape when stationary, and may be folded into a ball prior to being thrown, but flattens in flight.

  • Patent number: 9316551
    Abstract: This disclosure provides example methods, devices and systems associated with a torque-insensitive header assembly. In one embodiment, a method comprises receiving, by a sensor, from an aperture defined by a shell, an environmental condition, wherein the sensor is coupled to a header and the header is coupled to the shell such that the sensor is isolated from a torque stress applied to the shell; measuring, by the sensor, the environmental condition to determine an environmental condition signal; and outputting, from the sensor, the environmental condition signal.

  • Patent number: 9205511
    Abstract: An improved header assembly and corresponding port assembly comprising a tensioning member, wherein the tensioning member is isolated and separate from the weld portion and is adapted to place a threaded portion between the header assembly and port assembly in tension and maintain such tension, and thus relieve tension from the weld, before and after welding, thereby increasing the lifespan of the header and port assemblies.

  • Patent number: 8913999
    Abstract: First party geolocation data is obtained along with data indicating one or more contact parties associated with the first party. A relevant contact party radius from the geolocation of the first party is defined such that any contact parties within the relevant contact party radius are considered relevant contact parties with respect to the first party. Contact party geolocation data indicating the geolocation of at least one of the contact parties is then obtained. The first party geolocation data and the contact party geolocation data is then analyzed to identify any relevant contact parties within the relevant contact party radius. When a relevant contact party is identified, contact data for the identified relevant contact party is obtained and/or accessed and provided to one or more applications associated with the first party computing system.

  • Patent number: 8800376
    Abstract: There is disclosed a high pressure sensing header which is relatively insensitive to mounting torque. The header generally includes an outer torque isolating shell which has a “C” shaped cross section with the cylindrical shell surrounding an inner “H” section header. The inner “H” section header has a thick diaphragm and is at least partially surrounded by the torque isolating shell. In this manner, when the header is installed, the installation force is absorbed by the outer shell and there is relatively no installation force or torque exhibited by the inner “H” section which will respond only to stress due to pressure.

  • Patent number: 8635915
    Abstract: There is disclosed a high pressure sensing header which is relatively insensitive to mounting torque. The header comprises an outer torque isolating shell which surrounds an inner “H” section header. The inner “H” section header has a thick diaphragm and is surrounded by the torque isolating shell which is secured to the “H” section header at a peripheral flange of the “H” section header. In this manner when the header is installed, the installation force is absorbed by the outer shell and there is no installation force or torque exhibited by the inner “H” section which will respond only to stress due to pressure. The torque isolating shell also contains a top surface which has a counterbore that accommodates a crush ring. When the unit is installed, the crush ring is crushed against an installation wall to enable the inner header to receive pressure without experiencing significant installation force.

  • Patent number: 8561470
    Abstract: A single pressure sensing capsule has a reference pressure ported to the rear side of a silicon sensing die. The front side of the silicon sensing die receives a main pressure at another port. The difference between the main and reference pressure results in the sensor providing an differential pressure output. The reference pressure or main pressure may be derived from a pump pressure which is being monitored. The pump pressure output is subjected to a pump ripple or a sinusoidally varying pressure. In order to compensate for pump ripple, a coiled tube or an adjustable dampening chamber comprising a spiral inlet tube and a volume cavity can be used. The tube length is selected to suppress the pump ripple as applied to the sensor die. In this manner, the pump ripple cannot cause resonance which would result in pressure amplification and which pressure amplification would destroy the sensor.

  • Publication number: 20130233087
    Abstract: A pressure transducer assembly, and a method of making the same, comprising a header having a first connection portion; a port having a corresponding second connection portion, wherein the first connection portion of the header is attached to the second connection portion of the port to create a header-port interface; and an integral back up ring defined in one of the header and port, wherein the integral back up ring is separated from the header-port interface by a cavity. The first connection portion of the header is attached to the second connection portion of the port by a full penetration weld and the integral back up ring is adapted to block the full penetration weld from damaging the header and thus minimize, if not eliminate, crack propagation.
