  • Publication number: 20220267610
    Abstract: Compositions are described for protecting a metal surface against corrosion. The composition includes a corrosion-inhibiting particle. The corrosion inhibiting particle may be usable in an epoxy resin-based coating or an olefin resin-based coating. The particle may include a core and a protectant. The core may include a water soluble corrosion inhibitor. The protectant may be disposed on at least a portion of a surface of the core and may be covalently or ionically bonded to a thiol group of the corrosion inhibitor. The protectant may be configured to reduce reaction between the core and the epoxy resin or the olefin resin. Methods of making the compositions are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11375146
    Abstract: Amplitude-modulated (AM) signals spanning a spatial wide area can be efficiently detected using a slowly scanning optical system. The system decouples the AM carrier from the AM signal bandwidth (or carrier uncertainty), enabling Nyquist sampling of only the information-bearing AM signal (or the known frequency bandwidth). The system includes a staring sensor with N pixels (e.g., N>106) that searches for a sinusoidal frequency of unknown phase and frequency, perhaps constrained to a particular band by a priori information about the signal. Counters in the sensor pixels mix the detected signals with local oscillators to down-convert the signal of interest, e.g., to a baseband frequency. The counters store the down-converted signal for read out at a rate lower than the Nyquist rate of AM signal. The counts can be shifted among pixels synchronously with the optical line-of-sight for scanning operation.

  • Publication number: 20070044441
    Abstract: An engine intake air filter with a captive tooless fastener for securing the engine intake air filter. The tooless fastener comprises a shaft and an associated body. The body has two arms oriented about 180° from one another. The shaft is threaded through a sealing washer and an aperture in an closed end cap of the air filter. The shaft expanded or a component secured to the shaft such that the shaft cannot be removed from the end cap. The body has a threaded inner diameter that mates with a threaded portion of a central shaft in an air filter housing. The arms of the body are rotated to screw the fastener and the shaft of the housing together. When tightened, the aperture is closed by the sealing washer. To remove the air filter, arms are rotated in the reverse direction and the fastener is unscrewed from the shaft of the housing. In this loosened position the shaft floats in the aperture. A person in the field can insert his or her fingers under the arms.

  • Patent number: 6862732
    Abstract: A data processing system that enables event modules to transmit event data to a module capable of processing the event data, generating a response, and when required producing a response profile to be sent to a location. The response is produced by the system executing one or more scripts to perform processing and gather data from processing modules. As the response is being generated by the execution of the script, the scripts self-modify based upon the data gathered. The system recognizes the necessary changes and dynamically generates a response to the changes. If the response profile must be transmitted to another location, the response profile will be in a format that the receiving location will recognize.

  • Patent number: 6297725
    Abstract: A keyless locking mechanism is activated by a remote unit which transmits coded signals to an electromechanical door lock device. The electromechanical device components are configured for secure mounting within the void or hollow portions of existing door locking apparatus. A sensor in the outer doorknob receives and forwards the coded signals to a processor which compares them with a predetermined stored signal. If an acceptable comparison is made, the processor generates control signals for the device, which acts solely along the locking axis to enable or disable the door locking assembly. The coded signals include two separate signals which are transmitted in segments interleaved with one another. The first signal includes an entrance code, while the second signal provides information concerning the frequency over which the next segments will be transmitted. The processor uses the second signal information to tune the receiver.

  • Patent number: 5933086
    Abstract: A keyless locking mechanism for use in a door or the like. An operator activates the system by means of a portable remote handheld controller or a remote keypad unit, which transmit coded signals to an electronically controlled, electromechanical door lock device. The electronic and electromechanical device components are configured for secure mounting within the void or hollow portions of existing door locking apparatus, such as within the hollow interior doorknob, or hollow cylindrical sleeve latch actuators, or beneath the interior rose or escutcheon plates. A sensor or receiver/antenna mounted within the outer doorknob receives and forwards the coded signals to a processor which compares them with a predetermined stored signal. If an acceptable comparison is made, the processor generates control signals for the electromechanical device, which acts solely along or about the locking axis to enable or disable the door locking assembly, according to the command initiated by the operator.
