  • Patent number: 10648798
    Abstract: A device for projecting a time variable optical pattern onto an object that is to be measured in three dimensions, the device comprising a frame for an optical pattern; a light source with optional illumination optics; and imaging optics, wherein the optical pattern is on slide that is attached to a movement mechanism that moves the optical pattern relative to the optional illumination optics and/or relative to the imaging optics, wherein the movement mechanism causes a movement of the optical pattern in a slide plane that is oriented orthogonal to an optical axis of the imaging optics.

  • Publication number: 20200140236
    Abstract: A method of lifting a rotor of a wind turbine, the rotor having a center of gravity and including a hub and first, second, and third blades projecting outwardly from the hub at locations circumferentially distributed thereabout, includes positioning first and second slings around the first and second blades, respectively, to define first and second lifting zones delineating a lifting envelope, wherein the lifting envelope encompasses the center of gravity. The method also includes lifting the rotor above a surface via the first and second slings wherein the rotor is in one of a substantially horizontal or substantially vertical orientation, with the aid of at least one of the first and second slings while continuing to fully support the rotor by the first and second slings.

  • Patent number: 10644417
    Abstract: A coaxial cable connector for attachment to an end of a coaxial cable is disclosed. The coaxial cable connector includes a rotatable body segment having a body wall with an outer surface and an inner surface defining a width of the body wall. The body wall has a radial dimension which varies along a perimeter of the rotatable body segment. The inner surface defines a longitudinal opening extending between a forward end of the rotatable body segment and a rearward end of the rotatable body segment. A post positions proximal the forward end of the rotatable body segment. The post has a first end and a second end with a bore extending therebetween. The post is rotationally stationary with respect to the rotatable body segment. A coupling member positions proximal to the first end of the post. The rotatable body segment is rotated to close the coaxial cable connector.

  • Patent number: 10374368
    Abstract: A coaxial cable connector for attachment to an end of a coaxial cable is disclosed. The coaxial cable connector has a body having a forward end and a rearward end. An internal surface extends between the forward end and the rearward end defining a longitudinal opening and with a cable receiving area proximal the rearward end and a jacket stop proximal the forward end. A post is positioned in the body proximal the forward end and has a first end and a second end with a bore extending therebetween. An insulator is movably disposed in the bore of the post and has a through-passage and a movement limiter. A gripping member is disposed within the longitudinal opening of the body proximal the rearward end and provides a gripping action as the gripping member axially moves toward the forward end of the body.

  • Patent number: 10218132
    Abstract: A post-less, self-gripping coaxial cable connector for tool-less attachment to an end of a coaxial cable is disclosed. The coaxial cable connector has a body having a forward end and a rearward end and a longitudinal opening. A retainer positioned in the body has a forward section, a rearward section, and a bore. A ring is movably disposed in the retainer. A gripping member having at least one spring finger is friction fit to the body and is radially inwardly biased in a predisposed orientation. The ring has a pusher feature configured to axially move the ring upon force being applied to the pusher feature by a coaxial cable received by the body causing the gripping member to engage the jacket of the coaxial cable when the coaxial cable is installed in the coaxial cable connector.

  • Patent number: 8986044
    Abstract: A coaxial cable connector comprising a coupler, a body, a shell, a ferrule, and a compression ring is disclosed. The ferrule is disposed adjacent to the body and has a plurality of fingers with inwardly directed barbs and a channel with a wall having an inwardly facing surface with inner projections. The compression ring is disposed within the shell and engages the rear end of the ferrule. Advancing the shell toward the coupler causes the compression ring to drive the rear portion of the ferrule inwardly. This causes the plurality of fingers to flex inwardly toward the coaxial cable forcing the barbs against the coaxial cable. This also causes the compression ring to provide a biasing force against the channel forcing the inner projections of the inwardly facing surface of the wall to bite into the coaxial cable.

  • Patent number: 7730700
    Abstract: The invention is a combination of a short ground sensor arm mounted close to the cutter bar and a longer rod mounted towards the rear of the header. The short front sensor and long rear sensor are connected by a linkage which translates motions from either sensor to the other sensor. A second linkage translates the motions of both sensors rearward to a protected area under the header which contains the potentiometer. This configuration transmits useful ground position signals to the header height controller in both low and high cutting heights. The invention advantageously reduces the likelihood of damage to the short front sensor when the machine is reversed since the longer rear sensor arm pulls the shorter forward sensor arm up by means of the linkage to a position where damage is unlikely.

  • Patent number: 7690945
    Abstract: A coaxial cable connector is provided for attachment to a corrugated coaxial cable. The coaxial cable connector includes a clamping member with at least two projections configured to engage the outer corrugated conductor where the corrugated conductor has a diameter that is the smallest. The coaxial cable connector also includes seals to protect the coaxial cable connector from the elements. An alternative embodiment includes a third projection to engage the outer corrugated conductor to provide support for the coaxial cable.
