  • Patent number: 10528720
    Abstract: A device may require one or more updates to its software. However, the device may be inaccessible due to a variety of circumstances. Troubleshooting the device may be difficult. Therefore, the device may be configured to automatically run a script after it has been validated to perform one or more functions on the control panel. In one embodiment, a method to automate a script on a device is described. The method may include searching an attached external storage device for a script, identifying a script based at least in part on the searching, validating the authenticity of the identified script, and executing, automatically, the validated script.

  • Patent number: 10387636
    Abstract: A control panel may prevent access to one or more aspects of the control panel based at least in part on one or more security parameters. The security parameters may include a default locked status and a takeover locked status. The default locked status may prevent a user or other personnel from accessing the software, code, or other intellectual property on the control panel while still allowing the user to interface with the security and/or automation system. The takeover locked status may prevent any access or use of the control panel. To protect the automation system and the automation system provider, it may be desired to use a unique identifier to unlock at least one or more aspects of the control panel. The unique identifier may be loaded onto an external storage device which the control panel may automatically recognize.

  • Patent number: 9761374
    Abstract: An epoxy resin composition is disclosed for joining dissimilar materials. The identified epoxy resin compositions can fee used to seal metallic and non-metallic components of a capacitor. Specifically the epoxy resin composition can be applied to joints between a non-metallic capacitor bushing and a metallic tank cover and metallic terminal cap. Once the epoxy resin composition is cored, it can provide a seal that can withstand the stresses and environmental conditions to which a capacitor is subjected.

  • Publication number: 20160260545
    Abstract: The disclosed concept relates to multi-layer dielectric film with nano- or micro-structured block copolymers, such as, but not limited to, di-block copolymers and tri-block copolymers, and, more particularly, to capacitors constructed from the film. More particularly, the disclosed concept provides the ability to tune or control one or more characteristics of the dielectric film and capacitors formed therefrom, by selecting and combining blocks that exhibit different electrical and/or mechanical properties.

  • Patent number: 8875745
    Abstract: A fabric for forming a fibrous paper web having an embossed surface is provided that includes at least longitudinal and transverse threads interwoven with one another in a weave repeat defining a machine side and a paper side. Some of the longitudinal threads form embossing threads having projecting paper side floats on the paper side of the fabric passing over more than one transverse thread. The fabric includes at least a first woven fabric layer forming the paper side on its outside and having longitudinal and transverse first threads interwoven with one another and a second woven fabric layer forming the machine side on its outside and having longitudinal and transverse second threads interwoven with one another. At least some of the longitudinal second threads form embossing threads, which penetrate the first woven fabric layer for forming the paper side floats and connect the two woven fabric layers.

  • Patent number: 8640741
    Abstract: A woven papermaker fabric having a first woven fabric layer made of first threads and having a second woven fabric layer made of second threads, the two woven fabric layers being connected by binder threads formed by structural second threads at binder points and having knuckles having peaks constituting a peak plane parallel to a paper side plane, and the first threads forming knuckles with concave inner bends, the points of which lying nearest to the paper side plane constituting an inner plane, wherein the tension of the first threads extending transversely to the binder threads is such that the peak plane is nearer to the paper side plane than the inner plane thereby causing lateral deflections of at least one of the first threads.

  • Patent number: 7733856
    Abstract: Path information is obtained in a VPLS-based network by generating special Layer 2 frames (referred to herein as “trace-request frames”), performing source MAC filtering to identify the trace-request frames, and generating a special frame (referred to herein as a “trace-reply frame”) when the source MAC filtering identifies a trace-request frame. Upon identifying a trace-request frame, path information is collected and embedded into the trace-reply frame. The trace-reply frame is then sent to the originating node where the path information is used to learn the path that the trace-request frame traversed. By sending multiple trace-request frames with different source MAC addresses, path information received from source MAC filtering at different nodes in the VPLS-based network can be collected and used to learn an entire path of interest.

  • Patent number: 7289498
    Abstract: A technique for classifying traffic at a network node involves programming a content addressable memory (CAM) array with multiple class-specific entries, where each of the class-specific entries has an associated traffic class, obtaining a protocol-independent key field from an incoming packet, and searching the programmed CAM array with the protocol-independent key field to identify an associated traffic class of the incoming packet. In another embodiment, each of the class-specific entries has an associated traffic distribution policy, which may be applied to an incoming packet.

  • Patent number: 7280472
    Abstract: Protection switching between primary and secondary paths in a packet-based network involves table entries that are pre-programmed with a primary path, a secondary path, and a value that identifies the primary path, referred to as a primary path identifier (PPI). When table entries are accessed to make forwarding decisions, the PPI is compared to a field that identifies that a particular path is down, referred to as a down path identifier (DPI). If the two fields match, (i.e., PPI=DPI), then the secondary path is selected instead of the primary path as the path on which the traffic should be forwarded.

  • Patent number: 6817651
    Abstract: A vehicle window seal assembly includes a division bar formed without structural metal and including one of an insert or an overlay layer of a relatively soft material. The division bar can be formed in an H configuration having an elastic hinge between a leg of the H profile and a cross piece. The division bar can also be formed to receive and engage the insert to locate sealing lips for contacting a moveable glass panel.
