  • Patent number: 4604504
    Abstract: There are three spring blades held in working relationship to a camstack which provide the making of two different and distinct circuits simultaneously by substantially simultaneously closing electrical contacts carried by the blade. Of the three blades a lower level blade engages cam contours of the camstack, a middle level blade includes a follower which engages a hub portion of the camstack, while the upper level blade extends freely above the middle blade.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 4567654
    Abstract: A bussing block has wafers stacked one on top of the other and includes apertures which are in alignment with each other. Buss bars are carried on the wafers and have apertures aligned with the apertures in the wafers. Electrically insulating collars extend from selected ones of the wafer apertures so that when electrical terminals are inserted through all of the aligned apertures of the wafers and buss bars, the electrical terminals will be electrically isolated from the buss bars by the collars.

  • Patent number: 4531028
    Abstract: Switches are fixed relative to a camstack for cam actuation and include two individual blades the free ends of which are biased toward the camstack. One of the blades engages the cams to actuate it relative to the other. The free end of the other blade rides on a pivotally mounted carriage which is biased by the hub of the camstack to reference the blade to the hub. The carriage includes individual cam followers which are flexible and which engage the hub to be flexed by the hub. Walls extend from the individual followers between adjacent sets of blades to prevent arcing between adjacent sets of electrical contacts. A third blade also rides on the carriage to be biased by the hub. The third blade provides another switching function.

  • Patent number: 4497986
    Abstract: A timing mechanism has a rotating camstack which opens and closes electrical contacts that are carried by electrical contact blades which are actuated by the camstack. One of the two cooperating electrical contact blades is also actuated by a first sliding member that is manually operated by an actuator to open and close a circuit to a main power supply. Manual rotation of the camstack to set a program is prevented when the circuit to the main power supply is closed by a second sliding member that is simultaneously operated off the same actuator. A step in a cam associated with the electrical contact blade to the main power supply opens the circuit to the main power supply when there is a malfunction.

  • Patent number: 4346270
    Abstract: A digital clock is coupled to a cam means of a timing mechanism so that the clock can indicate the time remaining of a cycle provided by the cam means. One of the display wheels of the clock is intermittently rotated through the stored energy of a torsion spring, the energy being stored when the wheel is prevented from rotating by a slider which engages the wheel. A second display wheel is intermittently rotated as the first wheel is rotated through a geneva gear system which couples the two wheels together.

  • Patent number: 4152954
    Abstract: A coupling means coupling a motor to a series of teeth coupled to a cam means includes a no-back pawl mounted in and carried by a plate, a drive pawl slideably carried by the no-back pawl, aligned apertures in each of the pawls, and a gear means coupled to the motor and having a hub portion extending through the apertures with a drive portion eccentric to the rotational axis of the hub and engaging the drive pawl.
