  • Publication number: 20190354907
    Abstract: A system includes a server connected to a network. The server includes a data collection module, a database interaction module, and a predictive analysis module. The data collection module is configured to collect data, via the network, from one or more data sources, the data being related to food safety risk and sanitation compliance tracking of a food establishment. The database interaction module is configured to store, into a database, data collected by the data collection module and to retrieve data from the database. The predictive analysis module is configured to analyze data in the database and calculate, based on the analyzed data, a probability of the food establishment violating a health code.

  • Patent number: 5657254
    Abstract: A system including a plurality of gas flow control units in cabinets which are connected to distribute process gas, on demand, to a plurality of utilization locations known as "tool" locations in a semi-conductor manufacturing plant. Transducers are used in the system to measure pressures and other control parameters. Zero calibration of the transducers is provided by automatically subjecting each transducer to a reference computer routine to compute the difference between the standard value and the transducer output, and store the difference as an "offset" to correct the output of the transducer. Thus, re-calibration is performed simply and quickly, at a relatively low labor cost and with relatively little downtime for the system.

  • Patent number: 5497316
    Abstract: Gas flow control units in cabinet are connected to distribute process gas, on demand, to a plurality of utilization locations known as "tool" locations in a semi-conductor manufacturing plant. The flow control units are adapted to deliver process gas selectively from one of two supply tanks to any one or all of four different tool locations. Simple, fast, low-cost purging of the gas delivery conduits is provided to facilitate maintenance, gas cylinder changes, etc. Means are provided to enable pulse purging of the long gas delivery conduit from the cabinet to the tool when flow-through or other purging is not possible.

  • Patent number: 5220517
    Abstract: A plurality of gas flow control units in cabinets are connected to distribute process gas, on demand, to a plurality of utilization locations known as "tool" locations in a semi-conductor manufacturing plant. Each gas flow control unit is connected to a single tool interface controller over a single communications cable. The status and operational characteristics of the individual units are communicated through the tool interface controller to a supervisory control computer by means of polling. Each flow control cabinet has its own data processor, and can be operated alone. Also, the supervisory computer can be used to operate each cabinet, as well as to monitor operations of the system. Gas demand and other signals are communicated from each tool location to the control units through a single cable connected to the interface controller, thus reducing the original wiring cost.
