  • Patent number: 10712234
    Abstract: A system and method capable of detecting damage in a belt before catastrophic failure of the belt occurs. The system includes a belt having at least a first conductive component and/or at least a first dielectric component, and one or more pulleys to which the belt is mounted. At least a first of the pulleys has at least one conductive component that, in combination with the first conductive component or the first dielectric component of the belt, defines an electrical element. At least a portion of the electrical element is located within the belt so as to be physically responsive to transitory and permanent distortions of the belt resulting from extrinsic and/or intrinsic sources. Electrical potential is applied through the electrical element so as to generate an electrical signal from the electrical element corresponding to a physical response of the belt to a transitory and/or permanent distortion.

  • Patent number: 10359579
    Abstract: A connector comprising: (a) a housing defining a plurality of openings, a portion of the openings being peripheral openings and at least one of the openings being an interior opening; and (b) at least two retainer components defining a plurality of retainer openings which align with the plurality of openings, each of the retainer components defining a periphery and a portion of the plurality of retainer openings, and being configured with an accessway from the periphery to each of the portion of the plurality of retainer openings to allow passage of a cable therethrough.

  • Patent number: 8896207
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a fluorescent light fixture assembly including a ballast and a novel lighting element that includes an array of LEDs and at least one converter module that enables the existing ballast providing an AC power input to supply DC power to the LED array. The lighting element includes a body that contains the LED array and the converter modules and shares the configuration of the lighting element that is to be retrofitted. The lighting element receives power from the pre-existing ballast, wherein the converter module provides a constant current source to power the LED array. Thus, the lighting element, including the converter module, replaces the conventional fluorescent light tube in a cost-effective retrofit manner with the existing ballast.

  • Publication number: 20120293996
    Abstract: An LED lighting element is configured to receive electrical power from a fluorescent lighting fixture ballast. The LED lighting element includes a base and a light engine coupled to the base. The light engine includes at least one LED. An end cap is coupled to the base and defines an enclosed chamber. A converter module is housed within the enclosed chamber and is electrically coupled to the light engine. The converter module is configured to convert AC power from the fluorescent lighting fixture ballast to DC power for powering the at least one LED.
