  • Patent number: 11349861
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to monitoring network traffic using network monitoring computers (NMCs). Metrics may be determined based on monitoring network traffic associated with a plurality of entities each associated with a profile that includes the metrics for each entity. Beaconing metrics associated with beaconing activity may be determined based on the metrics. The profile of each entity may be compared with the beaconing metrics to determine the entities that may be engaged in beaconing activity. The entities may be characterized based on beaconing activity such that the beaconing activity includes communication with endpoints associated with the third parties, employing communication protocols associated with the third-parties, or exchanging payloads consistent with the beaconing activity. Reports that include information associated with the entities and its beaconing activity may be generated.

  • Publication number: 20170190086
    Abstract: An edge-gated injection molding apparatus is disclosed having an injection manifold assembly for distributing a melt stream of moldable material to a plurality of mold cavities aligned on opposing sides of the injection manifold assembly. The injection manifold assembly includes a plurality of melt outlets with each melt outlet being in fluid communication with a respective mold cavity, and a plurality of biasing components disposed along a centerline of the injection manifold assembly. A nozzle seal is disposed between each injection manifold assembly melt outlet and its corresponding mold cavity, with an upstream end of the nozzle seal being slidably disposed against its respective melt outlet. Each biasing component is disposed between a pair of melt outlets and corresponding nozzle seals for biasing the melt outlets and nozzle seals outward from the centerline of the injection manifold assembly toward their respective mold cavities and applying a preload thereto.

  • Patent number: 9693915
    Abstract: A person support apparatus comprises a lower frame, a support, and an upper frame. The support is coupled to the lower frame. The upper frame has a head section and a foot section and defines a longitudinal axis passing through the head section and the foot section and a lateral axis substantially perpendicular to the longitudinal axis. The upper frame includes a tilt mechanism pivotably coupling the upper frame to the support. The tilt mechanism includes a base and a rocker nested within the base. The base and the rocker are pivotable with respect to one another about a pivot axis that passes through the base and the rocker and is substantially parallel the longitudinal axis. The upper frame is pivotable about the pivot axis with respect to the lower frame.
