  • Publication number: 20200224844
    Abstract: A lamp assembly for a vehicle comprising a housing, a reflector mounted in the housing, a light source, a printed circuit board or PCB mounted on a heatsink of the lamp assembly and coupled to the light source to control operation of the light source. The PCB has a first connector for coupling to a second connector comprising a body having a plurality of resilient or elastic arms that each have a detent for locking the connector to the component and retain electrical contact with the PCB. The wall of the heatsink defines an aperture for receiving the second connector and provides a locking surface that deflects the arms towards the body while engaging and cooperating with the detents to lock the connector to the PCB. The free end of the arms extend beyond the mounting wall and are actuated to unlock the connector from the PCB.

  • Publication number: 20200062501
    Abstract: A configurable cryogenic storage device has a freezer and a rack carrier positioned inside of the freezer. The freezer includes a bearing and a drive shaft though the freezer, the drive shaft being coupled to the rack carrier inside the freezer and adapted to be coupled to a motor assembly. The rack carrier rests on the bearing in a manual rotation configuration and hangs from the drive shaft when the motor is connected. Coupling the drive shaft to the motor assembly lifts the rack carrier and decouples the bearing and enables automated rotation of the rack carrier by the motor. The rack carrier includes rack-mounting features holding a plurality of sample storage racks. The sample storage racks hang from the rack carrier and the rack-mounting features precisely position the end of each sample storage rack.

  • Publication number: 20190367831
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to methods and compositions for making bio-based, biodegradable, and non-bioaccumulating lubricating base oils generated by esterifying alkoxylated polyols (average alkoxylation ?3) with long-chain (?C14) saturated and unsaturated fatty acids (FA) or fatty acids modified using industry recognized techniques.

  • Publication number: 20190357558
    Abstract: Certain characteristics of esterified propoxylated glycerol compositions and reduced-fat food products prepared therefrom may be modified and improved by combining such esterified propoxylated glycerol compositions with particular triglyceride compositions having higher melting points, wherein the melting and crystallization properties of each component are taken into account when selecting them for combination. For instance, EPG-based confectionary products having reduced issues with slump, blocking and demolding may be prepared by incorporating such a higher melting triglyceride composition, without compromising the organoleptic qualities of the resulting confectionary.

  • Publication number: 20190336854
    Abstract: Acquiring an interactive digital content item including a plurality of content portions includes receiving a first set of the content portions that is less than an entirety of the content portions. A partial functionality version of the interactive digital content item is presented using the first set of content portions. A second set of the content portions is received while the partial functionality version of the interactive digital content item is presented. Functionality is added to the partial functionality version of the interactive digital content item using the second set of content portions without interrupting presentation of the partial functionality version of the interactive digital content item.

  • Publication number: 20190332152
    Abstract: A universal serial bus (USB) hub includes detection circuits for a D? and a D+ connection of a USB port and a control circuit. The control circuit is configured to disable, detection circuits, respective impedances. After disabling the respective impedances, the USB hub is further configured to detect, at the detection circuits, respective values from the D+ connection and the D? connection. The USB hub is further configured to, based upon the respective values, switch the USB port between a device port configuration and a host port configuration.

  • Patent number: 10218964
    Abstract: A dimensioning system that analyzes a distance map for null-data pixels to provide feedback is disclosed. Null-data pixels correspond to missing range data and having too many in a distance map may lead to dimensioning errors. Providing feedback based on the number of null-data pixels helps a user understand and adapt to different dimensioning conditions, promotes accuracy, and facilitates handheld applications.

  • Patent number: 10060729
    Abstract: A handheld dimensioner with a user interface configured to present a quality indicator is disclosed. The handheld dimensioner is configured to capture three-dimensional (3D) data and assess the three-dimensional-data's quality. Based on this quality, a quality indicator may be generated and presented to a user via the user interface. This process may be repeated while the user repositions the handheld dimensioner. In this way, the user may use the quality indicators generated at different positions to find an optimal position for a particular dimension measurement.
