  • Patent number: 10708388
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for defining an action node series at a database system are described. In some examples, the workflow may include one or more nodes are associated with an action. When executed, the workflow may produce an outcome based on the occurrence of an event or parameter associated with the one or more nodes. In some examples, the workflow may include one or more branch nodes. A branch node may include logic such that, when the workflow is executed, the logic selects a particular workflow path that includes its own specific nodes. The path may be selected based on the occurrence of an event or a value of one or more parameters. Thus, when a workflow including one or more branch nodes is executed, the outcome of the workflow may be based on the occurrence of the event or the value of the parameter.

  • Publication number: 20200182945
    Abstract: A system for use with an electric machine is provided. The system includes a processor and a memory comprising a set of memory modules, which, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to perform certain operations. The operations include receiving operational data from the electric machine, and generating, based on the operational data, a first set of diagnostic data, by executing a first memory module from the set of memory modules. The operations further include generating, based on the operational data, a second set of diagnostic data, by executing a second memory module from the set of memory modules, the second memory module including a set of parameters associated with a diagnostics model of the electric machine. Furthermore, the operations include effecting, based on the operational data, the first set of diagnostic data, and the second set of diagnostic data, a change in at least one parameter.

  • Patent number: 10529213
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a first signal indicating a first movement in first predefined zone at a first time. A first activation signal is communicated to cause a first light source in the first predefined zone to be activated and provide downward illumination in the first predefined zone. A second activation signal is communicated to cause a second light source that in a second predefined zone to be activated and provide downward illumination in the second predefined zone. Responsive to an absence of receiving a second signal indicating a second/return movement in the first predefined zone at or before a second time that is after the first time, an alarm signal is transmitted that is indicative of an occurrence of a potential non-normal event.

  • Patent number: 10143763
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are an apparatus, method and system for storing perishable items that degrade in the presence of oxygen and/or humidity and that are frequently accessed by a consumer. The apparatus comprises an openable insulated vessel with precisely controlled internal temperature and humidity, which becomes airtight when closed, and a corona ozone generator with an oxygen gas feed tank and fan within the insulated airtight enclosure, which converts ambient oxygen trapped within the airtight enclosure into ozone by circulating the enclosed volume of air through the corona ozone generator after the vessel is opened and then closed. Also disclosed is a refrigerated embodiment of the apparatus, which may be self-contained and transportable. The apparatus is network connected to allow for remote control and monitoring and sends alerts to web applications or mobile applications when monitored parameters substantially vary from their settings.

  • Patent number: 9986753
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are an apparatus, method and system for drying and/or curing perishable items that degrade in the presence of oxygen and/or humidity. The apparatus comprises a treatment chamber and an exposure chamber, which are connected by insulated conduits. The connected chambers create an airtight enclosure that confines an airtight volume of air. The treatment chamber comprises an UV light array, which converts ambient oxygen trapped within the airtight enclosure into ozone, and an air conditioning unit that precisely controls the internal temperature and humidity. The exposure chamber receives the perishable items and comprises fans that circulate the treated volume of air through the conduits and around the UV light array and perishable items to optimize drying and/or curing. The apparatus is network connected to allow for remote control and monitoring and sends alerts to web applications or mobile applications when monitored parameters substantially vary from their settings.
