  • Patent number: 9640964
    Abstract: A duplex electrical connector constructed of two body portions with internal bores. The body portions easily assemble and disassemble in a sliding manner, the direction of the assembly and disassembly being substantially at right angles to the axes of the internal bores. A front connector body includes a leading end and a trailing end with a lip, a trailing flange, and a bottom periphery. A tab with an aperture therein extends from the top lip. A rear connector body includes a leading end with a front extension, a boss, a trailing end, and two internal bores extending from the trailing end to the leading end. Sliding assembly of the connector bodies enables minimizing the size of the connector bodies for reducing unit production costs while enabling easy disassembly of the two connector body portions for inspection of internal cable connections.

  • Publication number: 20170110993
    Abstract: A torque monitoring system includes a rotatable measurement interface and a stationary data receiver. The measurement interface is configured to be attached to a rotatable shaft. The measurement interface includes a strain gauge, a processor, and a near field communication (NFC) transceiver coil. The stationary data receiver is stationary with respect to the rotating shaft. The stationary data receiver includes a processor and an NFC transceiver coil. The rotatable measurement interface receives operating power via its NFC transceiver coil that is derived from a radio signal wirelessly transmitted by the NFC transceiver coil in the stationary data receiver. The processor in the rotatable measurement interface is configured to receive strain gauge signals from the strain gauge indicative of torque on the rotatable shaft and wirelessly transmit digital data indicative of the strain gauge signals through the NFC transceiver coils to the processor in the stationary data receiver.

  • Publication number: 20170089189
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed herein that include providing an active torsion damper control system that includes a rotatable component (206) and a rotatable measurement interface (302) disposed on the rotatable component, the rotatable measurement interface having at least one torsional strain gauge configured to measure a strain of the rotatable component, a torque management (306) computer configured to determine a resonant frequency of the rotatable component and a corrective torque needed to be applied to the rotatable component to excite the resonant frequency as a function of the measured strain, and a correction motor (308) configured to impart the corrective torque on the rotatable component.

  • Publication number: 20170081770
    Abstract: Methods and systems for electrochemically producing at least one product are disclosed. In some embodiments, the systems include a membraneless electrochemical flow-through reactor. A pair of porous electrodes configured at an angle to each other is disposed within the reactor in a channel of flowing electrolyte including a target reactant. As the electrolyte stream flows through the porous electrodes, a voltage is applied across the electrodes, resulting in the generation of a catholyte effluent stream and an anolyte effluent stream Gaseous and/or liquid products may then be separated from these streams. The membraneless electrochemical flow-through reactor is an easy to design and assemble apparatus for a variety of electrochemical processes.

  • Publication number: 20070008239
    Abstract: Various new and non-obvious systems and methods are disclosed for interaction between a primary and a secondary display on a portable electronic device. When an event is received at the electronic device, the secondary screen reflects a portion of information about the event. The primary screen is synchronized with the secondary screen such that when the primary screen is accessed (such as by opening a clamshell lid) it reflects the information shown on the secondary screen, as well as potentially adding more information.

  • Publication number: 20070008289
    Abstract: A keyboard has a middle region that has upward longitudinal slopes rising to upper planes on both sides of the middle region. An alphanumeric section disposed in the keyboard housing generally in the middle region. The keyboard includes a first wing section and the second wing section in which each can be disposed at height of the keyboard housing at the upper plane. In one aspect, the alphanumeric section may be disposed below the height of the first and second wing section, and the alphanumeric section is laterally disposed between the first medial section and the second media section.

  • Publication number: 20050213717
    Abstract: A method and system for scenario synchronizing in a communication device allows a user to complete a task initiated or prompted from a secondary display on a primary display. The secondary display provides quick access to useful information such as time, date, battery life, signal strength, new messages and calendar reminders. When the communication device (e.g., a clamshell flip-style device) is opened to access the primary display, a user need not navigate to the specific application to complete the initiated task.

  • Publication number: 20050190196
    Abstract: A method and system for using a color scheme to communicate information associated with an event and related to the integration of software and hardware of a computing device creates a seamless user experience. A hardware element of the computing device is illuminated based on a color scheme associated with a corresponding software element. The color scheme may communicate information related to a functional feature of the computing device, personal preferences or brand extension.

  • Patent number: 6875092
    Abstract: In accordance with certain aspects of the invention, an exemplary claim can define the steps of providing a rotating mount for the initially cast prosthesis in association with a numerically or computer controlled grinding machine. The grinding wheel is rotatably supported so that the wheel can translate vertically and axially relative to the axis of the workpiece, and can pivot in a plane generally parallel to the axis of the workpiece. In one step, the stem of the workpiece is rotated as the grinding wheel is held in position substantially perpendicular to the axis of the stem. The grinding wheel is then retracted and repositioned along the length of the stem through a series of successive positions. At each position, the grinding wheel is rotated in contact with the rotating workpiece. Once the grinding wheel is positioned at the transition region, the workpiece is preferably rotated through 180° on both sides of the transition region.
