  • Publication number: 20150365492
    Abstract: An industrial automation component may receive identification information associated with a user of the industrial automation component and determine whether a profile that corresponds to the identification information exists in a database. When the profile does not exist, the industrial automation component may receive a graphical interface template configured to be displayed on a graphical user interface (GUI) associated with the industrial automation component, one or more parameter names configured to associate one or more measurements acquired by the industrial automation component, pre-load information comprising data configured to enable the industrial automation component to operate, or any combination thereof. The industrial automation component may then and generate a user interface view for the GUI based on the graphical interface template, the parameter names, the pre-load information, or any combination thereof.

  • Publication number: 20150362916
    Abstract: An industrial automation component may receive design information associated with an arrangement of one or more industrial automation components in an industrial automation system and identify a first portion of the industrial automation components in the industrial automation system that is unable to interface with a second portion of industrial automation components based on the design information. The industrial automation component may then generate a list of industrial automation components based on the first portion of the industrial automation components and the second portion of industrial automation components, wherein each of the list of industrial automation components is configured to translate a first set of data associated with the first portion of the industrial automation components to a second set of data configured to be at least partly interpretable by the second portion of industrial automation components.

  • Publication number: 20150335988
    Abstract: Second Chance Blackjack is a side bet that is played with a regular blackjack game. It gives the player a second chance to win after his 12-16 hand loses against a dealer 2-6 up card. The player wagers the optional side bet before the hand starts. If he loses his main bet with a 12-16 total against a dealer 2-6 up card, the second chance player then uses a community card. If this 2nd chance hand beats the dealer hand, the side bet pays 20:1. If the 2nd chance hand loses to the dealer, the side bet loses; if it pushes with the dealer, the side bet pushes. Otherwise, the side bet pushes for any normal main hand win or push, and loses for any normal loss.

  • Patent number: 9159532
    Abstract: The invention refers to a method and a charged particle beam device for analyzing an object using a charged particle beam interacting with the object. The object comprises a sample embedded in a resin. Interaction radiation in the form of cathodoluminescence light is detected for identifying areas in which the resin is arranged and in which the sample is arranged. Interaction particles are detected to identify particles within the resin and the sample for further analysis by using EDX analysis.

  • Publication number: 20150152445
    Abstract: The invention provides a recombinant, acetogenic, carboxydotrophic bacterium that lacks secondary alcohol dehydrogenase or comprises an inactivated secondary alcohol dehydrogenase. The inactivated secondary alcohol dehydrogenase may be encoded by a secondary alcohol dehydrogenase gene comprising an inactivating mutation that reduces the ability of the bacterium to convert acetone to isopropanol and to convert methyl ethyl ketone to 2-butanol. Since a bacterium that lacks secondary alcohol dehydrogenase or comprises an inactivated secondary alcohol dehydrogenase accumulates carbonyl-containing compounds, the invention also provides a method of producing carbonyl-containing compounds, such as acetone and methyl ethyl ketone.
