  • Publication number: 20200056921
    Abstract: A hub, sight glass column and bottom sediment and water bowl are described. The hub is adapted to interconnect multiple machine fluid equipment to a single port on a machine. The hub is provided with an adjustable fitting connectable to a housing, and recessed within the hub. The sight glass column is configured to be indirectly attachable to a machine via a machine connector such that machine fluid is transferable from the machine to the sight glass column. The sight glass column further has a remote sensing port, and a lockable oil level ring. The bottom sediment and water bowl has a conically shaped bottom to direct fluid to a drain valve, and an indicator located on an upper tip of the drain valve. The indicator is configured to provide information with respect to one or more contaminant or property of machine fluid within the bottom sediment and water bowl.

  • Patent number: 10553212
    Abstract: A vehicle-based remote control system and method are provided herein. A first in-vehicle device and a second in-vehicle device are provided. The second in-vehicle device includes a user-input mechanism having at least one actuatable member, and a controller programmed to respond to input from the user-input mechanism. Upon actuation of the at least one actuatable member, the controller prompts the first in-vehicle device to transmit a pre-recorded user voice command assigned to the at least one actuatable member. The pre-recorded user voice command is transmitted to a server. The server processes the pre-recorded user voice command and generates a command for executing an action specified by the pre-recorded user voice command. The command is executed by one or more smart devices located remotely from a vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20190378560
    Abstract: A memory system includes dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) components that include interconnected and redundant component data interfaces. The redundant interfaces facilitate memory interconnect topologies that accommodate considerably more DRAM components per memory channel than do traditional memory systems, and thus offer considerably more memory capacity per channel, without concomitant reductions in signaling speeds. Each DRAM component includes multiplexers that allow either of the data interfaces to write data to or read data from a common set of memory banks, and to selectively relay write and read data to and from other components, bypassing the local banks. Delay elements can impose selected read/write delays to align read and write transactions from and to disparate DRAM components.

  • Publication number: 20190350868
    Abstract: Oral dosage forms containing an opioid antagonist in a sequestered form are described. The opioid antagonist is sequestered such that it is not released or substantially not released in the gastrointestinal tract from the dosage form which is administered orally intact. However, when the dosage form is chewed, crushed, heated or dissolved in a solvent, and then administered orally, intranasally, parenterally or sublingually, the opioid antagonist is released and at least partially blocks effects of the opioid agonist.

  • Publication number: 20190342325
    Abstract: There are provided systems and methods for managing network vulnerability scanning to avoid interference and disruption of network operations. In one form, the system includes: a network of computing devices; a network vulnerability scanner for evaluating insecurity and vulnerability of the network; a network traffic monitor for measuring the volume of network traffic at a certain time; and a scanning scheduler that includes scanning blackout events limiting operation of the scanner. Each blackout event includes an event name, a country or region for the blackout, a blackout start time and end time, and a blackout type that may include a level of the blackout and an authorization required for the network scan to proceed. In the system, a control circuit controls operation of the scanner; interrupts, delays, or cancels a network scan when the network traffic exceeds a certain threshold; and enforces blackout events according to the scanning scheduler.

  • Publication number: 20190339659
    Abstract: Situational-awareness controllers and methods to increase situational-awareness for an actor associated with a triggering event are described. An example method includes in response to receiving a notification of a triggering event generated by at least one sensor, a computing device accessing information that includes related to an actor associated with the triggering event. The computing device correlates the information to a compilation of historical information by (i) determining whether the actor's location is associated with one or more safety events stored as part of the compilation of historical information and (ii) determining a risk level of the actor based on whether the one or more associated safety events occurred within a predetermined range of time from the time associated with the triggering event. The computing device generates a command based on a result of the correlating and sends the command to at least one controllable device.
