  • Patent number: 10482794
    Abstract: A self-laminating rotating cable marker label is constructed of a transparent film having a first adhesive area, an adhesive-free smooth area, and a second adhesive area. A print-on area forms one side of the transparent film, the print-on area adapted to receive indicia identifying the cable about which the marker label is applied. A perforation extends across the transparent film providing a line of separation of the transparent film. When wrapped around a cable, the second adhesive area overlies the print-on area such that the cable identifying indicia is visible through the transparent second adhesive area. As the transparent film is wrapped around the cable, the first adhesive area adheres to the cable. The remainder of the transparent film is rotated, breaking the perforation, whereby the smooth area of the film in contact with the cable provides smooth rotation of the label around the cable.

  • Patent number: 7840573
    Abstract: A trusted relabeler system and software is provided that allows for the simultaneous reclassification of multiple files to multiple classification labels (security domains or computer networks) through automation of the multi-person review process. Roles, used to break down the requirements of the multi-person review process, dictate what specific function a user can perform. There are three roles used: Submitter, Processor, and Reviewer. Users are assigned one or more roles and a set of source and destination classification labels inside the security policy of a specific user that are bounded (restricted) by the clearance (maximum classification) assigned to a user on the trusted operating system on which the trusted relabeler system is implemented. The bundled documents to be reclassified are virus scanned, file typed, and searched for “dirty words” indicative of a particular classification level. Files are upgraded or downgraded only if all processes are completed successfully.

  • Patent number: 7268092
    Abstract: A composite part made from a sheet molding compound is disclosed as having improved characteristics over traditional sheet molding compound composite parts. The fibrous material is introduced as a veil layer adjacent a paste layer, the veil flows well during the molding process. The improved flow and surface characteristics of a composite part are attributed to the elongation of the veil during molding and to the improved filling capabilities.

  • Publication number: 20040187864
    Abstract: An inhalation device and method to deliver a pre-selected dose of medication to a user. The inhalation device comprises an enclosure having an inhalation tube. The inhalation tube has an inlet end and an outlet end. A medication dispenser is coupled to the enclosure and is in communication with the inhalation tube. A sensor is mounted in the enclosure with at least a portion of the sensor extending into the inhalation tube. The sensor has a characteristic of responding in proportion to speed of gas flowing in a given direction within the inhalation tube. An electrical circuit is coupled to the sensor and medication dispenser and is configured to trigger the medication dispenser wherein a dose of medication is expelled into the inhalation tube upon receipt of a signal from the sensor at a predetermined gas flow speed in the inhalation tube.
