  • Patent number: 11974410
    Abstract: Aspects discussed herein include an electronic device and an associated connector interface. The electronic device comprises an enclosure that defines an internal volume, a plurality of external surfaces, and a recess from an external surface of the plurality of external surfaces. The recess has circumferential slot(s) extending to the external surface and that receive flange(s) of an external connector. The electronic device further comprises a connector interface connected with one or more electronic components disposed in the internal volume. The connector interface comprises first conductor(s) that are exposed at the recess. While the flange(s) are received in the circumferential slot(s), rotation of the external connector causes the flange(s) to slide within the circumferential slot(s) into a retained position, in which second conductor(s) of the external connector, having a fixed disposition relative to the flange(s), are connected to the first conductor(s).

  • Publication number: 20240003749
    Abstract: An electronic device is described to monitor a temperature of an ambient environment. The electronic device comprises an enclosure that defines an internal volume and a plurality of external surfaces. The enclosure comprises a thermal member exposed to the ambient environment at an opening defined through a first external surface. The thermal member has a greater thermal conductivity than other portions of the enclosure, which have a greater transmissibility of wireless signals than the thermal member. The plurality of external surfaces and the thermal member are disposed to prevent liquids from entering the internal volume. The electronic device further comprises a temperature sensor disposed in the internal volume, thermally contacted with the thermal member, and connected with wireless transmitter circuitry to wirelessly transmit measurements of the temperature of the ambient environment.

  • Publication number: 20230114770
    Abstract: A process for producing a silver-based epoxidation catalyst, comprising i) impregnating a particulate porous refractory support with a first aqueous silver impregnation solution comprising silver ions and an aminic complexing agent selected from amines, alkanolamines and amino acids; ii) converting at least part of the silver ions impregnated on the refractory support to metallic silver by heating while directing a stream of a first gas over the impregnated refractory support to obtain an intermediate catalyst, wherein the first gas comprises at least 5 vol.
