  • Patent number: 10623975
    Abstract: An embedded modem for an unattended host device that provides improved cellular communications capabilities to the unattended host device. The embedded modem detects the occurrence of a signal effectiveness event reflective of the reliability of a cellular communication session, and upon detecting the occurrence of a signal effectiveness event, issues commands to improve the reliability of the cellular communications. The signal effectiveness event data can be communicated by the embedded modem on channel that is different from a channel provided for the host device to communicate its own data with an associated remote computer system.

  • Publication number: 20200018126
    Abstract: An assembly for a torque-transmitting connection in an inner pipe string of a dual-member drill string is formed from a collar, a retaining ring, and an inner pipe member. An endless internal groove having adjacent shallow and deep sections is formed in the collar. Formed in the inner pipe member, an external grooved region is situated in adjacent relationship with the internal groove. The retaining ring, situated within the grooves, resists disconnection of the collar from the inner pipe member. When the assembly is subjected to an axial force that might otherwise tend to pull it apart, the retaining ring resists the tendency by wedging between the bottom of the shallow section of the internal groove and the crest of the external groove.

  • Patent number: 10487595
    Abstract: An assembly for a torque-transmitting connection in an inner pipe string of a dual-member drill string is formed from a collar, a retaining ring, and an inner pipe member. An endless internal groove having adjacent shallow and deep sections is formed in the collar. Formed in the inner pipe member, an endless external groove is situated in concentric relationship with the internal groove. The retaining ring, situated within the grooves, resists disconnection of the collar from the inner pipe member. When the assembly is subjected to an axial force that might otherwise tend to pull it apart, the retaining ring resists the tendency by wedging between the bottom of the shallow section of the internal groove and the crest of the external groove.

  • Publication number: 20160355941
    Abstract: Electric potential, current density, agitation, and deposition rate are controlled to deposit metal alloys, such as tin based solder alloys or magnetic alloys, with minimal variations in the weight ratios of alloying metals at different locations within the deposited metal alloy feature. Alternative embodiments include processes that form metal alloy features wherein the variation in weight ratio of alloying metals within the feature is not necessarily minimized, but is controlled to provide a desired variation. In addition to metal alloys, alternative embodiments include processes for improving the deposition of single metal features.

  • Publication number: 20080090220
    Abstract: A multimedia reproduction system comprises a computing subsystem operably connected to and controlling one or more of video, audio, and olfactory subsystems. The system accepts user input and adapts a multimedia presentation in response thereto. The subsystems are easily separable and configured in carrying cases that protect them during transport. The subsystems easily connect (physically and electronically) to each other upon delivery to form a system that presents 3-D, high definition video, surround-sound audio, and even scents from local and/or remote sources.

  • Patent number: 6602059
    Abstract: The present invention provides an electrical submersible pump assembly having a submersible pump, a submersible electrical motor drivingly connected to the pump, and a seal assembly disposed between the submersible pump and the motor. The seal assembly is generally of tubular construction and provides fluid communication between the seal assembly cavity and the motor, such fluid communication being in a circuitous path effecting gravity segregation of contaminants including particulate solids in wellbore fluids. The seal assembly thereby controls and minimizes migration of the contaminants into the body of the seal section and on into the motor.
