  • Patent number: 8716915
    Abstract: This invention relates to the construction of stators for use in electric motors. A stator for an electric motor comprises an elongate tubular body defining a central cavity in which a rotor can be located, the body defining a series of axial slots extending parallel to the body axis and a series of electrical conductors extending along the channels to form electrical windings, wherein the body is formed from at least two part-circular segments of substantially the same length, the segments together defining the central cavity.

  • Publication number: 20120066634
    Abstract: In at least some embodiments, a web browser user interface is designed to enable site branding and functionality. Specifically, websites can provide content that can be utilized in a control layout area near the top of the web browser user interface to reinforce branding through the use of color and/or a site-provided icon, termed a “favicon” that serves dual roles as a branding instrumentality and a site's home button. Further, in at least some embodiments, branding can be reinforced through the use of a site-associated color that is utilized for rendering one or more web browser navigation controls.
