  • Publication number: 20200166395
    Abstract: A system (800) for minimizing a crest in a multi-tone drive signal in a vibratory meter (5) is provided. The system (800) includes a drive signal generator (810) configured to generate the multi-tone drive signal for the vibratory meter (5) and a drive signal detector (820). The drive signal detector (820) is configured to receive the multi-tone drive signal, determine a first maximum amplitude of the multi-tone drive signal having a component at a first phase, determine a second maximum amplitude of the multi-tone drive signal having the component at a second phase, and compare the first maximum amplitude and the second maximum amplitude.

  • Patent number: 10569413
    Abstract: An exoskeleton includes a first link that pivots in a transverse plane about a first vertical axis and a second link that pivots in a transverse plane about a second vertical axis. The second link is coupled to the first link. An arm support assembly is coupled to the second link and pivots about a horizontal axis. The arm support assembly includes a spring that generates an assistive torque that counteracts gravity. The arm support assembly provides the assistive torque to an arm of a wearer to support the arm of the wearer. The arm support assembly further includes a cam profile and a cam follower. Contact between the spring, cam follower and cam profile determines an amount of the assistive force provided by the arm support assembly. A cuff is coupled to the arm support assembly and the arm of the wearer.

  • Publication number: 20200042479
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods implementing a hardware queue management device for reducing inter-core data transfer overhead by offloading request management and data coherency tasks from the CPU cores. The apparatus include multi-core processors, a shared L3 or last-level cache (“LLC”), and a hardware queue management device to receive, store, and process inter-core data transfer requests. The hardware queue management device further comprises a resource management system to control the rate in which the cores may submit requests to reduce core stalls and dropped requests. Additionally, software instructions are introduced to optimize communication between the cores and the queue management device.

  • Publication number: 20190352096
    Abstract: A delivery chute for use on a concrete mixer truck has automated systems to allow for repositioning and reconfiguration without requiring an operator to manipulate components. The chute is configured to have multiple segments that can be folded/nested with one another for transport and can be positioned in an extended configuration thereby forming a continuous delivery surface for purposes of delivering concrete to a desired location. Powered mechanisms are used to reposition these segments, thus eliminating the need for operators to handle chute segments at all. A control system is provided to coordinate operation of components so proper sequences are followed during folding, unfolding, raising, lowering and swinging operations. An operator can control each of these operations using a remote control, having single buttons to carry out specific operations.

  • Publication number: 20190328923
    Abstract: An odor neutralizer, for placement on upward facing indoor air intake louvers of a “mini-split” or other ductless air conditioner, comprises a cylindrical container housing an evaporable odor neutralizing gel, and having rows of holes in the container covered by flexible strips that can be removed to expose the evaporable gel to air flowing into the intake louvers. The ends of the cylindrical container are closed by end caps shaped to raise the cylindrical container so that it does not block the louvers and so that it does not roll on the louvered surface of the air conditioner.

  • Patent number: 10066359
    Abstract: A coupler device for coupling an attachment to a mechanical arm of a machine or vehicle, comprising a main hitch body (2), an actuator (3) mounted to the main hitch body (2) and moveable relative to the main hitch body (2) and a front locking mechanism. The front locking mechanism comprises a first locking member (4) adapted to be pivoted by operation of the actuator (3) from an open position to a closed position to engage with a first pin or other means of an attachment to secure the attachment to the mechanical arm and a second locking member (6) provided on the main hitch body which is adapted to mount the actuator to the main hitch body when the first locking member is in its closed position such that the main hitch body prevents the first locking member (4) from pivoting into its open position.

  • Publication number: 20180222451
    Abstract: An onboard washing system provides the ability to wash specific areas at the rear of a concrete truck, without requiring an operator to climb a ladder or climb on the truck. Certain specified areas which are traditionally difficult to wash, including the inside of the charge hopper, the interior portions of the discharge chute, and rear portions of the mixing drum structure, can now be washed in an automated and efficient manner. The truck-mounted washing system has components which are specifically positioned to cause washing fluid (water) to be sprayed or directed toward predetermined areas in an efficient and effective manner. The system also includes hand-held washing wands or washing mechanisms, which allow an operator to easily reach additional zones or additional areas at the rear of the truck, which are lower. Most significantly, the truck-mounted wash systems and the hand-held nozzle systems (wand) are all operable while an operator remains on the ground.
