  • Patent number: 10481663
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing the operation of Power Supply Units (PSUs) are described. In some embodiments, a method may include: identifying a mismatch between a first Power Supply Unit (PSU) and a second PSU in an Information Handling System (IHS), disabling the first PSU, determining that a voltage at an input line of the first PSU follows a predetermined pattern while the first PSU receives a secondary bias from the second PSU, and enabling the first PSU.

  • Patent number: 7194893
    Abstract: A method and sensor or sensor subsystem permit improved evaporative leak detection in an automotive fuel system. The sensor or sensor subsystem computes temperature-compensated pressure values, thereby eliminating or reducing false positive or other adverse results triggered by temperature changes in the fuel tank. The temperature-compensated pressure measurement is then available for drawing an inference regarding the existence of a leak with reduced or eliminated false detection arising as a result of temperature fluctuations.

  • Patent number: 7044111
    Abstract: A purge valve for an evaporative emission control system. The purge valve includes an actuator, a valve body, and a valve closure member disposed in the valve body. The actuator is disposed along a longitudinal axis, and includes an electromagnetic coil having a hollow core extending along the longitudinal axis, a stator disposed in the hollow core, and a permanent magnet armature disposed proximate the stator. The valve body is disposed proximate the actuator, and defines a flow passage extending along the longitudinal axis. When the coil is unenergized, the permanent magnet armature is magnetically attracted to the stator, and the valve closure member is spaced from the armature by a lost motion distance.

  • Patent number: 6640620
    Abstract: A leak detection monitor (22; 222) for an on-board evaporative emission leak detection system that detects leakage from an evaporative emission space of a fuel system of an automotive vehicle. One embodiment (22) utilizes engine intake system vacuum to vent the evaporative emission space to atmosphere when the engine is running; another (222), an electromagnet actuator (270, 280). Venting ceases when the engine is shut off. Changes in vapor pressure in the evaporative emission space are monitored over time by electric devices (74; 282) after the engine has been shut off to distinguish between a gross leak, a small leak smaller than a gross leak, and a leak that is at most smaller than a small leak.

  • Patent number: 6484555
    Abstract: A method of calibrating an integrated pressure management apparatus having a chamber with an interior volume varying in response to fluid pressure in the chamber. A diaphragm partially defining the chamber is displaceable between first and second configurations in response to fluid pressure variations around a certain pressure level. A resilient element applies a force biasing the diaphragm a first configuration and a switch is actuated by the diaphragm in the second configuration. The method includes connecting the chamber to a pressure source at a known pressure level, and adjusting resilient element such that the switch is actuated at the known pressure level.
