  • Publication number: 20200327469
    Abstract: A system, methods, and apparatus for point-in-time requirement tracking are disclosed. In an example embodiment, requirements for a project are stored in a database communicatively coupled to a server, the requirements including at least a first requirement stored in a first record and a second requirement stored in a second record. The server receives changes to the first requirement and the second requirement during the edit session and stores the changed first requirement to a third record and the changed second requirements to a fourth record. The server then provides the first and third records to a client device so that the client device can concurrently display the first requirement as specified in the first record and the first requirement as specified in the third record.

  • Publication number: 20200214704
    Abstract: A powered handle for a surgical stapler can have a drive system including an electric motor. The powered handle can include a manual articulation mechanism to articulate a jaw assembly coupled to a reload shaft connected to the handle. The manual articulation mechanism can include a ball screw mechanism that translates an articulation member responsive to rotation of an articulation knob. The articulation mechanism includes a release function that allows the jaw assembly to return to a longitudinally centered orientation. The powered handle includes a battery pack serving as a power supply for the drive system. A control system can control actuation of the motor based on user inputs and operating parameters of the stapler. The powered handle can include a manual return mechanism.

  • Patent number: 10566786
    Abstract: The present invention is concerned with a fault current enhancement for triggering a protection device, such as a fuse or circuit breaker or protection relay used in protecting a distribution line of a power distribution network in an efficient and economical way. An Induction Machine (IM) is operated in parallel with an energy source connected to the distribution line via a Power Electronics (PE) interface, to provide a fault current characteristic of the composite PE interface and IM similar to that of a synchronous generator. Comparable fault currents enable a same protection device to be provided for protecting the distribution line irrespective of a kind of interface used to source energy to the distribution line.

  • Publication number: 20190352623
    Abstract: Provided herein are substantially non-luminescent peptide/polypeptide tags that are inserted internally within a protein of interest or between N-terminal and C-terminal peptides/polypeptides. Interaction of the internally-inserted tag with a complement polypeptide/peptide that is also substantially non-luminescent results in the formation a bioluminescent reporter complex.
