  • Publication number: 20150146018
    Abstract: Wireless camera tags, inventory management systems with wireless camera tags, and methods for making and methods for using wireless camera tags are disclosed. A wireless camera tag is disclosed for a camera system with a mounting rail having one or more electrical conductors connected to a power source. The camera tag includes an outer housing for mounting to the mounting rail proximate the electrical conductors. A digital camera for generating image data signals is attached to the outer housing. An inductor coil is attached to the outer housing and electrically connected to the digital camera. The inductor coil inductively couples power from the electrical conductors of the mounting rail and transmits the power to the digital camera. The inductor coil may comprise an air core coil. The camera tag may further include a rectifier circuit, and a capacitor connected in parallel to the inductor coil to form a resonant circuit.

  • Patent number: 8506089
    Abstract: An apparatus for preventing bird collisions with a window including a UV light source, a mask, and a first lens configured to direct UV light from the UV light source through the mask. The mask is at least partially transparent to UV light and includes a pattern that is at least partially opaque to UV light. The UV light passing through the mask contains the pattern. The pattern-containing UV light is projected onto a pane of glass to form a UV image visible to birds corresponding to the pattern on the pane. The image is configured to deter birds from flying into the pane of glass.

  • Publication number: 20130174730
    Abstract: An energy recovery ventilator system includes a belt partially located in each of a first chamber and a second chamber. First and second desiccant units are positioned on the belt. At least some of the first desiccant units are in the first chamber at a first relative humidity, causing air received in the first chamber to achieve a first air humidity. At least some of the second desiccant units are in the second chamber at a second relative humidity, the second relative humidity being caused by the air received in the first chamber. The second relative humidity is modified to the first relative humidity by air passing through the second chamber, the air achieving a second air humidity. A controller causes the belt to move second desiccant units from the second chamber to the first chamber when the first air humidity fails to comply with a specific air humidity.

  • Patent number: 6295212
    Abstract: A power supply system includes an a-c. power source and an off-line power supply for storing energy from the a-c. power source during first selected time intervals and converting at least a portion of the stored energy to a d-c. output during second selected time intervals. A diode or other switch disconnects the off-line power supply from the a-c. power source during the second selected time intervals to reduce conducted EMI. The first and second selected time intervals are preferably synchronized to the frequency of the a-c. power source.

  • Patent number: 6271807
    Abstract: A product information display system has electronic display tags for displaying pricing and product information for products in stores or warehouses. The electronic display tags are electromagnetically coupled to a conductor. A control circuit is used to generate an information signal which contains a tag address and related data. A modulator circuit modulates an a-c. power signal with the information signal and applies it to the conductor for transmission to the display tags. Each of the display tags is equipped with a coil that is electromagnetically coupled to the conductor for picking up the signals carried by the conductor. A demodulator is used to demodulate the signal picked up by the coil to obtain the original information signal. Each of the display tags is provided with a manually operated switch for initializing the tags with initial addresses transmitted by the conductor.
