  • Publication number: 20190143161
    Abstract: A fire protection system comprising at least one sprinkler, a source of pressurized water, a piping network connecting at least one sprinkler to the source of pressurized water, and a nitrogen generator coupled to the sprinkler system. The nitrogen generator may be a nitrogen membrane system or a nitrogen pressure swing adsorption system. The present systems and methods reduce or nearly eliminate corrosion that typically affects conventional fire protection systems, such as caused by oxygen and microbial systems, which can deteriorate or compromise function. Initial, repeated, or continuous displacement of oxygen with nitrogen in the fire protection system significantly reduces or eliminates corrosion.

  • Patent number: 9081265
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for providing a decentralized intelligent nodal lighting system. The intelligent nodal lighting system may be controlled using a wireless protocol, such as Wi-Fi, and each lighting node in the system may have its own independent Wi-Fi address and may receive, store, and interpret commands from a wirelessly connected controller. Each intelligent light node may contain a CPU and memory for storing and interpreting commands from the controller to achieve a desired light color, intensity, or quality. In some embodiments, individual lighting nodes may be dynamically added or removed from the lighting system without interrupting the system's operation.

  • Patent number: 7936128
    Abstract: A high intensity discharge lamp includes an arc tube with a chemical fill, capillaries extended from the arc tube, electrodes fed through the capillaries into the arc tube, and a frit seal that seals the capillaries, where the frit seal includes silica (SiO2) in a range of more than 0 wt % to less than 5 wt %, alumina (Al2O3), and one of dysprosia (Dy2O3) and yttrium oxide (Y2O3). This frit seal material can withstand a higher operating temperature so that the length of the capillaries can be reduced compared to those sealed with conventional frit seal material.

  • Patent number: 6292485
    Abstract: A system for downloading a software image to a SONET network element which eliminates the need for a separate overhead channel for this purpose. The system conveys the software image using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) over the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), over the Internet Protocol (IP), using ATM. The disclosed system enables ATM cells carrying the software image to be received over a SONET ring connected to the device. The disclosed system uses permanent virtual circuits (PVCs) between network elements over which the software image may be transported. In a first embodiment, the PVCs form a star of logical connections with remote network elements to which software image files may be downloaded from a “gateway” network element. The gateway network element is a network element communicative with a central management station, which provides data to be downloaded to the remote network elements.
