  • Publication number: 20200357252
    Abstract: A security tag includes a tag body and a cooperating tack assembly having a tack head and an elongated pin extending from the tack head, with the pin being insertable into the tag body to secure an article therebetween. One or more electronic components and associated electrical circuits, including wireless communications modules and various types of sensors, are disposed in both the tack head and tag body. The tack head includes a battery and an energy harvesting circuit. The tack head pin has one or more discrete conductive segments which, when the pin is inserted into the tag body, electrically couple with electrical circuits disposed in the tag body, thus allowing the components in the tag body to be powered at least in part by the battery and/or the energy harvesting circuit disposed in the tack head. Methods for operating the tag to perform security functions are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 9797663
    Abstract: The invention relates to a heat exchanger comprising a casing (2) inside which is housed, and fastened by brazing, a heat exchange assembly (3) comprising a stack of heat exchange plates, each plate (4) having at least one edge (14) for brazing to the casing (2). The heat exchanger is characterized by the fact that it includes means, called unfastening means (20, 21, 22, 23), designed to prevent the casing from being brazed to at least a portion of the edge (14) of at least one end plate (4E) of the stack (3). By virtue of the invention, the heat exchanger is more flexible and absorbs thermal stresses better.

  • Publication number: 20130284409
    Abstract: The invention relates to a heat exchanger for the exchange of heat between first and second fluids. The heat exchanger includes first circulation canals for the circulation of the first fluid in a first direction of circulation (D1), and second circulation canals for the circulation of the second fluid, and perturbation walls arranged in the second circulation canals for the second fluid and having perturbators that perturb the flow of the second fluid. The perturbation walls respectively have at least one dividing rib. The at least one rib extends in a second direction (D2) substantially perpendicular to the first direction in which the first fluid circulates, and over a predefined distance of the wall that is less than the total width of the wall in the second direction, so as to define at least two circulation passes for the second fluid substantially perpendicular to the circulation of the first fluid.
