  • Publication number: 20240076875
    Abstract: A shingle coating asphalt composition is provided that is produced from a paving grade asphalt. The asphalt composition comprises a paving-grade asphalt that has been modified with one or more polymer additives; and a secondary additive comprising one or more of a viscosity reducing agent, a wax, a salt of a fatty acid ester, and an amide of a fatty acid. The shingle coating asphalt coating composition is used to make a shingle. The shingle includes a substrate, the asphalt, and roofing granules.

  • Patent number: 7423247
    Abstract: An automatic power control system provides a control signal that regulates the output power of at least one laser diode. Coarse adjustment of the control signal is provided by a first means, preferably a digital variable resistor, while fine adjustment and compensation is provided by a second means, preferably by a digital-to-analog converter that receives an input signal proportional to a sensed control system parameter. The control system includes an operational amplifier having a first input coupled to sense output power, and a second input coupled to a DAC to provide finer resolution control. Memory can store system parameter or system parameter variations that can be coupled to the DAC and/or variable resistor to enhance system stability over ambient variations.

  • Patent number: 6633104
    Abstract: An apparatus for estimating DC motor brush wear comprising: a wear element calculator adapted to calculate a plurality of wear elements from at least one environmental variable; a wear element multiplier adapted to multiply the wear elements by respective ones of a plurality of wear coefficients to yield a plurality of weighted wear elements; and a summer adapted to sum the weighted wear elements to yield a brush wear estimate.

  • Patent number: 5771925
    Abstract: The invention comprises a signaling device for a soap dispenser. The signalling device is mounted in the housing of the soap dispenser which has a pivotally mounted soap dispensing handle; and when pivotally moving the soap dispensing handle, the movement of the handle causes activation of the signalling device, immediately after dispensing the soap. The signalling device has an electrical circuit with a flexing panel which upon movement of the flexing panel by the engagement of the handle against the panel, it triggers an initial alarm or sound to signal to the operator that the timing interval for the operator to wash his hands with the dispensed soap has begun. The activated circuit thereafter counts a selected interval of time in seconds considered adequate for the operaor to thoroughly wash his hands; and at the end of that interval, the circuit sounds a second alarm or sound indicating that the washing time is over. The circuit then resets itself to repeat the sequence.

  • Patent number: 5742137
    Abstract: In a starter control system for an engine equipped with a starter motor, starter relay, ignition switch, and electronic control unit (ECU), a circuit and method whereby the ECU will deactivate the starter relay if the operator of a vehicle attempts to re-start the vehicle when the current engine speed is greater than the minimum engine running speed, under both initial starting and engine running conditions. The deactivation of the starter relay will prevent engagement of the pinion gear to the ring gear of the starter motor, potentially reducing wear on the starter motor, grinding of the pinion gear to the ring gear when engaging the gears at a high RPM, and noise to an operator of the vehicle.
