  • Publication number: 20190204795
    Abstract: A system selectively activates and deactivates delivery of power to a device by a power outlet using a pulsed sequence of on commands delivered at randomized intervals. The on commands may be sent by any number of sending devices. So long as a receiving device continues to receive on signals from any sending device on a selected channel, the receiving device will remain switched on and deliver power from the power outlet to a connected load. If the receiving device either (a) receives an off signal on the selected channel, or (b) stops receiving on signals on the selected channel for a timeout period, the receiving device will switch off and stop delivering power to the connected load.

  • Patent number: 9452007
    Abstract: A cannulated driver includes a handle, a barrel coupled to the handle, and a drive tip coupled to the barrel and having an outer surface and an engagement end that engages within a head of a cannulated screw. The driver is configured to removably retain a corresponding cannulated screw onto the driver. The drive tip includes a passageway disposed generally in a radial direction with respect to the driver's longitudinal axis. An engagement pin is movably mounted for travel in the passageway between an extended position wherein an exposable end of the pin protrudes radially beyond the outer surface of the drive tip and a retracted position wherein the pin does not thus protrude. In the extended position, the exposable end of the pin protrudes into a corresponding recess in the head of a special cannulated screw to removably retain the screw onto the driver.
