  • Patent number: 11352762
    Abstract: A coupler assembly for rotatably coupling a moldboard of a grader machine includes a bracket, a beam, a pin, a retainer, and an apparatus. The bracket is adapted to support the moldboard. The beam extends from a circle member rotatably coupled relative to a drawbar of the grader machine. The pin is adapted to rotatably couple the bracket and the beam to each other. Further, the pin defines an end adapted to extend outwardly from an assembly of the bracket and the beam. The retainer is adapted to be engaged with the end to retain the pin with the assembly of the beam and the bracket. Moreover, the retainer defines at least one end portion extending outwardly from the end. The apparatus is adapted to be mounted around the pin at the end to shield the at least one end portion of the retainer extending outwardly from the end.

  • Publication number: 20220145479
    Abstract: Described herein are systems and methods for the management and control of electrolyte within confined electrochemical cells or groups (e.g. stacks) of connected electrochemical cells, for example, in an electrolyzer. Various embodiments of systems and methods provide for the elimination of parasitic conductive paths between cells, and/or precise passive control of fluid pressures within cells. In some embodiments, a fixed volume of electrolyte is substantially retained within each cell while efficiently collecting and removing produced gases or other products from the cell.

  • Publication number: 20220037028
    Abstract: A method to provide personalized data of a patient includes obtaining at least one first personal data for a non-modifiable risk factor, obtaining at least one second personal data for a modifiable risk factor, and normalizing the first and second data using a lookup table, said normalized data representing an increase or decrease versus a neutral value. The method also includes adding the normalized data representing a decrease to a positive parameter, adding the normalized data representing an increase to a negative parameter, displaying the positive and the negative parameters in two distinct colors in a pie shape, the surface of each pie being proportional to the value of each parameter, and displaying in association with the pie shape, the portion of the negative parameter that results from the second personal data.

  • Publication number: 20220024442
    Abstract: A vehicle includes an internal combustion engine, an electric machine, and a controller. The electric machine is rotatably coupled to the engine and is configured to deliver electrical power to electrical accessories. The controller is programmed to, in response to a control signal loss between the electric machine and the controller, limit torque output of electric machine to less than a torque threshold that corresponds to the power threshold. The controller is further programmed to, in response an accessory power demand being greater than the power threshold, control the engine to power the electric machine to increase the torque output of electric machine to greater than the torque threshold to meet the accessory power demand.
