  • Patent number: 11369751
    Abstract: In one aspect, a safety pen needle assembly is provided herein which includes a hub with a needle fixed to the hub, the needle having a distal end, formed for insertion into a patient, and a proximal end. The assembly further includes a shield and a biasing member disposed between the hub and the shield configured to urge the shield distally. A protrusion extends from at least one of the hub and the shield with a channel being formed in at least the other of the hub and the shield. The channel is formed to accommodate the protrusion. The shield is movable from a first position to a second position. In the first position, the shield is spaced from the distal end of the needle such that the distal end of the needle is exposed. In the second position, the shield covers the distal end of the needle. The channel guides the protrusion as the shield moves from the first position to the second position. With this arrangement, a shield may be directed to move in a desired path with stability.

  • Patent number: 8289146
    Abstract: A monitoring system for a NAC (Notification Appliance Circuit) is provided. The monitoring system includes a system controller, and a NAC comprised of one or more notification appliances that may be in a series. The NAC and its appliances may be operatively coupled to the system controller. The system controller is operable to determine whether a notification appliance has sufficient voltage at a low voltage operation. The system controller may control the voltage to the NAC in order to provide power to simulate operation of the NAC using battery power. A voltage may be measured during the simulation (such as at one end of the NAC). The measured voltage may be compared with a predetermined minimum operating voltage for the notification appliance. Based on the comparison, it may be determined whether the one or more appliances on the NAC may operate properly when the NAC is operated using battery power.

  • Patent number: 8209410
    Abstract: A system and method for monitoring the storage estate of an organization using an interactive website that is configured to produce and display a novel set of key performance indicators (KPIs) related to the storage estate, including KPIs related to data collected from at least one of storage area network data and network attached storage data. In one embodiment, the novel set of KPIs includes one or more of protection efficiency, application efficiency, and snapshot overhead, where protection efficiency is calculated as a ratio of logical addressable data storage volume to total physical volume of data storage for storage area network data of the organization, application efficiency is calculated as a fraction of disk storage allocated to end user devices that is actually used by the end user devices for storage area network data, and snapshot overhead is calculated as a ratio of a volume of storage allocated for replicated copies of data to allocated storage for network attached storage data.
