  • Patent number: 7837173
    Abstract: According to various exemplary embodiments, an apparatus is provided for mounting a rearview display and one or more electronic components in a vehicle. An example of the apparatus comprises an inside rearview assembly for mounting an electronic component near a windshield of a vehicle including a mirror and an adjustable support connected to the mirror. The rearview assembly also includes a bracket configured to mount on the windshield, including an attaching structure configured to attach the bracket to the windshield and a support frame coupled to the attaching structure. The support frame has a portion set off from the windshield to accommodate the electronic component between the windshield and the set off portion. The support frame is connected to the adjustable support.

  • Patent number: 4907490
    Abstract: Apparatus for controlling a vehicle climate control system having pneumatic passages provided with doors or baffles to regulate the flow of conditioned air to the passenger compartment. The passage or passages are selected by positioning a valve that couples a pneumatic source to one or more of the door or baffle operators. The position of the valve is determined by an electric motor that has applied thereto an energizing voltage from a control bridge circuit which also has applied thereto a feedback voltage which changes in response to operation of the motor. Movement of the valve to a selected position causes the feedback voltage to equal the energizing voltage, whereupon the motor is deenergized and movement of the valve terminates.

  • Patent number: 4660320
    Abstract: A tamper proof, non-spilling bait station for small rodents is provided with a generally pentagonal shape suitable for placement in a 90.degree. room corner. Two rodent entranceways located in two outer walls of the container provide rodent access to a single rodent passageway which extends generally around the inner periphery of the enclosure. The rodent passageway leads to a single bait containment chamber. The rodent entranceways are partially occluded by primary and secondary anti-contamination barriers while the rodent passageway is provided with a plurality of bait containment barriers which serve to minimize spillage or tracking of poisonous bait. A removable lid extends over the outer walls of the container thus enclosing the rodent passageway and bait containment chamber.

  • Patent number: 4550525
    Abstract: A tamper proof rodent baiting station is provided with a generally triangular shape, and rodent access entrances at two corners are connected via an entrance passageway along a first exterior wall. A central passageway is connecting to and extending from the entrance passageway towards the third corner, rodent bait retention areas are accessible from the central passageway, and rodent inaccessible openings are provided at the third corner, providing an apparent egress for rodents traveling along the central passageway.

  • Patent number: 4438584
    Abstract: A non-toxic adhesive trap for mice and insects using a pressure sensitive adhesive which is insensitive to normal heat variations in a room and will not bleed onto adjacent surfaces. A non-porous plastic tray has a central indentation into which molten material is poured which then thickens to provide a tacky layer which will trap, by self-adhesion, any vermin coming into contact therewith.

  • Patent number: 4310800
    Abstract: Digital frequency measuring circuitry is disclosed which includes a first shift register, the content of which is increased by a fixed amount at the beginning of each cycle of the input signal to be measured. Thereafter the content of the first register is caused to exponentially decay until the next input cycle is detected where the process is repeated. At the beginning of each cycle of the input signal, the content of the first register is transferred to a second or memory register where the data is used to drive a gage or other output device. To improve gage performance during low frequency input the memory register is also updated whenever the content of the first register is less than the content of the memory register. Also, if the input signal is removed any significant residual in the first register is eliminated by decrementing the first register to insure that the gage accurately represents the input condition.
