  • Patent number: 11569719
    Abstract: An electric motor for an appliance includes a rotor coupled with a drive shaft. The rotor includes a plurality of rotor magnets that each define a magnet assembly including a plurality of magnet portions having different magnet pole orientations. A stator is in electromagnetic communication with the rotor. A gap is defined between the stator and the rotor. The stator comprises a stator core. A plurality of stator poles define the gap. Stator magnets are positioned within the stator core and are located to partially define the gap. Each stator magnet defines a pair of flux paths that extend around an outer perimeter of the stator magnet and onto the gap. The different magnet pole orientations of the plurality of rotor magnets operate to direct an effective magnetic flux toward the gap.

  • Publication number: 20220147789
    Abstract: A mechanical energy-based self-powering counting system is provided. The system includes an electromagnetic power generator, a count measuring circuit, a count energy supply circuit, a controller and a wireless transmission module. The electromagnetic power generator is driven by an external device and produces an electric signal and outputs the electric signal to the controller after passing it through the count measuring circuit. The controller processes the received signal, updates a count according to certain programming rules and sends data to the wireless transmission module. The energy from the electromagnetic power generator flowing through the count measuring circuit can supply power to the controller. An energy storage module in the count energy supply circuit performs voltage feedback on the controller. The controller monitors the voltage of the energy storage module to control whether it enters a charging state.

  • Publication number: 20220121620
    Abstract: A system clock is protected by limiting clock changes, change frequency, and calculating skew. System and secure clocks are initialized to a same time. First and second thresholds are set. The first threshold corresponds to an alert and the second threshold corresponds to an action. At a time interval at which the secure clock is to be updated, a skew is calculated between the system and secure clocks, and a cumulative skew is calculated. Upon a determination that the cumulative skew has reached the first threshold, but not the second threshold, the alert is triggered while deletions of files having retention locks that have expired according to the system clock are allowed to continue. Upon a determination that the cumulative skew has reached the second threshold, the action is triggered. The action includes blocking the deletions of files having retention locks that have expired according to the system clock.
