  • Publication number: 20200215213
    Abstract: A control panel having a variety of potential applications that utilize ultraviolet-C (UV-C) light as a means of disinfection. In one embodiment, a human/machine interface (HMI) panel, such as a touchscreen or keypad uses a dynamically moveable multi-reflector assembly using UV-C light to disinfect its touch surfaces. The goal of integrating UV-C disinfection with an HMI works to provide a safe and effective dose of UV-C light to the panel's surface for the purpose of reducing the number of active pathogens.

  • Publication number: 20080061558
    Abstract: A hydro-generation system includes housing having a passageway, a turbine nozzle, a rotor and a stator. The rotor includes a plurality of turbine blades and a permanent magnet. A flow of liquid may enter the passageway and be directed by the turbine nozzle to the turbine blades to induce rotation. The stator is position within the permanent magnet such that rotation of the permanent magnet induces the production of the electrical energy in the stator. The flow of liquid may flow through the housing and out of the hydro-generation system.

  • Publication number: 20070145909
    Abstract: An inductively powered gas discharge lamp assembly having a secondary circuit with starter circuitry that provides pre-heating when power is supplied to the secondary circuit at a pre-heat frequency and that provides normal operation when power is supplied to the secondary circuit at an operating frequency. In one embodiment, the starter circuitry includes a pre-heat capacitor connected between the lamp electrodes and an operating capacitor located between the secondary coil and the lamp. The pre-heat capacitor is selected so that the electrical flow path through the pre-heat capacitor has a lesser impedance than the electrical flow path through the gas of the lamp when power is applied to the secondary circuit at the pre-heat frequency, and so that the electrical flow path through the pre-heat capacitor has a greater impedance than the electrical flow path through the gas when power is applied the operating frequency.
