  • Patent number: 8278875
    Abstract: A safety supervisory module (SSM) of an electric vehicle charging station that controls flow of current from the electric vehicle charging station to an electric vehicle. The SSM includes a set of two or more processors to control operation of a contactor control circuitry of the SSM to open and close a set of contacts of a set of power supply lines to control flow of current from the charging station to an electric vehicle. Each processor independently determines whether an unsafe condition exists and asserts a relay enable signal to the contactor control circuitry only when an unsafe condition does not exist.

  • Patent number: 5905200
    Abstract: Detection of the flow of a fluid, and also measurement of the flow of a fluid, is provided by feeding the fluid flow through a cylindrical chamber to form a cyclonic circulation of the fluid in the chamber. A movable member is moved by the fluid flow. As one example a ball rotates around the inside of the chamber and the passage of the ball detected, at a particular position. An alternative is an annular member also rotated. There can be an optical detection or electronic detection. Output signal can be generated by the movement. Such signals can be processed to give flow rates. The chamber is positioned in a by-pass flow line, with the flow rate of the by-pass related to the total flow.

  • Patent number: 5575072
    Abstract: This invention relates to a sight targeting and range finding device which permits the bow to be aligned properly to a destined target. The bow sight-range finder device can be programmed by the user to select the proper targeting marker for a given distance and also allow selection of range finder markers that can be programmed to be used in conjunction with the targeting markers. When the range finder is used by the archer, the site targeting markers are automatically positioned. The bow sight includes a control which provides interface between the bow sight electronic circuitry and the archers fingers on the hand holding the bow.
