  • Publication number: 20240143603
    Abstract: A service intelligence system is disclosed. The service intelligence system receives a search query, identifies anomalous machine codes for a machine associated with the search query, selects one or more historical data elements based on a similarity score between the identified anomalous machine codes and machine codes associated with the one or more historical data elements, ranks the one or more historical data elements based on the similarity score, selects a predetermined number of the one or more historical data elements based on descending rank order, and provides at least one corrective action or at least one part replacement associated with the tag for each of the predetermined number of highest ranked historical data elements in response to the search query. The machine codes are identified for a predetermined time period and each of the one or more historical data elements is associated with a tag.

  • Publication number: 20240028905
    Abstract: Thus, the present disclosure is directed to systems and methods for training neural networks using a tensor that includes a plurality of FP16 values and a plurality of bits that define an exponent shared by some or all of the FP16 values included in the tensor. The FP16 values may include IEEE 754 format 16-bit floating point values and the tensor may include a plurality of bits defining the shared exponent. The tensor may include a shared exponent and FP16 values that include a variable bit-length mantissa and a variable bit-length exponent that may be dynamically set by processor circuitry. The tensor may include a shared exponent and FP16 values that include a variable bit-length mantissa; a variable bit-length exponent that may be dynamically set by processor circuitry; and a shared exponent switch set by the processor circuitry to selectively combine the FP16 value exponent with the shared exponent.

  • Patent number: 11717780
    Abstract: The addition of a medial longitudinal score line (hinge point) along the longitudinal channels of the filter frame allows for thinner media and/or collapsing the frame on itself which will reduce scrap, save space and save tremendously on shipping costs. The additional score line can be a cut score, skip score, crush score or liquid line. The collapsed filter frame expands upon sliding into the channels of the filter frame media holder whereby the filter frame expands and widens to fit the filter assembly.

  • Publication number: 20220107859
    Abstract: A root cause associated with an anomalous event in a device is determined. A method includes retrieving one or more event records associated with the device from a database. The method further includes determining a risk category associated with the one or more event records based on information present in the one or more event records. The risk category indicates a risk associated with a functioning of the device. Additionally, the method includes determining a priority associated with each of the one or more event records based on a baseline associated with the one or more event records. The baseline is defined based on a set of events that occur during a normal functioning of the device. The method includes determining the root cause associated with the anomalous event in the device based on the risk category and the priority associated with the event records.

  • Patent number: 11227383
    Abstract: A system, device, and method for inspecting the cosmetic and operational features of electronic devices, including computing and telecommunications devices. The cosmetic inspection system includes an image capture unit for capturing the images of the electronic devices, and a user interface for processing the captured images and providing relevant information to the user of the system. Images of the external components such as external casing materials or touch screens of electronic devices are captured and the cosmetic inspection system uses baseline images to make determinations to identify defective components of the electronic devices. Based on these determinations, the system may conclude which, if any, replacement components of the devices are needed to restore the electronic device. In one embodiment, a user of the system may then be provided with information through a user interface about defective components and options for ordering replacement components.

  • Publication number: 20210095645
    Abstract: An integrated energy system includes a nuclear thermal plant situated on a nuclear site. The nuclear thermal plant produces thermal energy that is transported to a thermal energy storage system located outside the nuclear site. The thermal storage system is thermally coupled to a power generation system which is also remote to the nuclear site. By this arrangement, the nuclear thermal plant is isolated and decoupled from the power generation system. The nuclear thermal plant may supply thermal energy upwards of 800° C. or more to be stored at the thermal energy storage system until needed such as for industrial heat, power generation, or other uses. The thermal storage system is source agnostic, and one or more additional thermal energy generators, such as additional nuclear reactors, solar thermal plants, or other thermal energy generators can be coupled to a common thermal storage system and power generation system.

  • Publication number: 20210041095
    Abstract: A luminaire includes a bracket having a first side and a second side, a light source connected to the first side of the bracket, and a driver connected to the second side of the bracket. A luminaire housing may contain the light source and be mounted to the first side of the bracket, wherein the first side of the bracket is capable of blocking heat generated within the luminaire housing from reaching the driver. The luminaire housing may include a heatsink to direct heat generated within the luminaire housing away from the luminaire housing, and the bracket is located between the heatsink and the driver. The driver may include a driver casing having an inner surface removably fastened to the second side of the bracket.

  • Patent number: 10907810
    Abstract: An assembly for mounting light fixtures to a light tower includes an upper portion and a lower clamping portion. One of these components may be an L-shaped stationary portion, and the other may be a sliding portion. One or more of the portions have mounting holes adapted to receive fasteners that couple the light fixture to the assembly. The portions may be clamped together in use to provide a clamping force around the light tower to secure the light to the tower.

  • Patent number: 10801708
    Abstract: This document describes a mounting structure that is used to pivotally mount and orient a lighting device with respect to a support structure. The light fixture includes an interface plate having at least one tilt aperture. Each tilt aperture corresponds to a tilt angle of the light fixture. The mounting structure includes a mounting slot for engaging with a mounting element of the interface plate, along with a semi-circular slot that overlaps the at least one tilt aperture when the light fixture is pivotally mounted on the mounting structure. The mounting structure also includes a fastening device that, when routed through the semi-circular slot for insertion into the tilt aperture, orients the light fixture pivotally mounted on the mounting structure at a tilt angle. The fastening device is lockably engaged within the semi-circular slot at a position corresponding to the tilt angle.
