  • Publication number: 20160158485
    Abstract: A portable, lightweight, head-mounted light therapy device is disclosed. The device comprises an one or more selectable light sources, such as light emitting diodes (LEDs), to provide bright or dim red light, bright or dim white light, or a combination thereof, selectable by the user, for shining on the user's face and eyes. The device can be used for the treatment of light deficiency disorders or conditions and circadian rhythm disorders and disturbances.

  • Patent number: 8750484
    Abstract: A telecommunications system is disclosed that enables a telecommunications switch to be “user” programmable in the “field”—in contrast to only programmable by the manufacturer or third-party software company—with audio samples. Each audio sample is exemplar of a sound that might be encountered during or after the establishment of a telecommunications call that is handled by the telecommunications switch. In accordance with the illustrative embodiment, the audio samples are received by the telecommunications switch through one or more of the same ports that the telecommunications switch uses to route calls, in contrast to programs and program data that are received by the telecommunications switch through a programming port.

  • Publication number: 20140116029
    Abstract: An exhaust system (10) for a dual fuel engine, which engine is adapted to operate in a first mode in which the engine is fuelled entirely by a liquid fuel, and a second mode in which the engine is fuelled predominately by a gaseous fuel, the system comprising a first oxidation catalyst (22), a first temperature sensor (30) adapted to measure a core temperature of the first oxidation catalyst, and a controller (32) for controlling whether the engine operates in the first mode or the second mode, wherein the first temperature sensor is operatively connectable to the controller such that the controller prevents the engine from running in the second mode if the core temperature of the first oxidation catalyst is below a predetermined temperature.

  • Patent number: 8412439
    Abstract: A multi-mode engine system comprising a first mode in which the engine is fuelled substantially entirely by a first fuel, and a second mode in which the engine is fuelled substantially entirely by a second fuel, or by a mixture of the first and second fuels, the engine comprising: a first engine control unit (ECU) for controlling the flow of the first fuel into the engine when the engine is operating in the first mode; and a second ECU operatively connected to the first ECU; wherein the first ECU comprises: a signal receiver for receiving the first input signals, and an output for emitting a first output signal; and the second ECU being adapted to modify the first output signal when the engine is running in the second mode to produce a first modified signal and a second calculated signal.

  • Publication number: 20110288745
    Abstract: A multi-mode engine system comprising an engine adapted to operate in a plurality of different modes including a first mode in which the engine is fuelled substantially entirely by a first fuel, and a second mode in which the engine is fuelled substantially entirely by a second fuel, or by a mixture of the first and second fuels, the engine comprising: a first engine control unit (ECU) for controlling the flow of the first fuel into the engine when the engine is operating in the first mode; a plurality of first sensors operatively connected to the first ECU, each of which first sensors is adapted to sense a first variable, and to emit a first input signal dependent on a value of the sensed first variable; and a second ECU operatively connected to the first ECU; wherein the first ECU comprises: a signal receiver for receiving the first input signals, and an output for emitting a first output signal dependent on the first input signals, which first output signal determines the amount of first fuel supplied to t

  • Patent number: 7688850
    Abstract: A method is disclosed that enables a user to set their “away” or auto-reply messages for two or more communications services (e.g., e-mail, voice mail, etc.) in one action. Separate actions are required in the prior art to change each outgoing message for every distinct communication service. The illustrative embodiment of the present invention is a method that enables a user to change the auto-reply message for multiple communication services with less effort than was required for multiple services in the prior art. In accordance with the illustrative embodiment, a text auto-reply message intended for e-mail is automatically converted into an abbreviated form for instant messaging and wireless text services and into audio for services like telephony. Furthermore, the illustrative embodiment enables the automatic translation of messages into different natural languages, and can apply rules so that the resulting messages are used appropriately.

  • Patent number: 7052927
    Abstract: A PIN detector device (190) is fabricated on a substrate (10). The substrate (10) includes a handle wafer portion (208), an implanted oxide layer (206), a backside contact layer (204) and an active wafer portion (202). The substrate (10) serves as a foundation to increase stability and facilitate handling during fabrication of electrical circuitry (248) on a surface of the active wafer portion (202). After the electrical circuitry fabrication processing is substantially complete, the handle wafer portion (208) and implanted oxide layer (206) are removed to expose the implanted backside contact layer (204).

  • Publication number: 20050264144
    Abstract: An up-assist/soft close support mechanism for a cabinet door that opens by moving upwardly and then rearwardly to a partly horizontal position above the cabinet. The mechanism includes pairs of unequal length links on opposite end walls of the cabinet. One of those links is designed as a bell crank. A gas cylinder is coupled between one arm of the bell crank and the cabinet end wall, while the second arm of the bell crank is connected to the door. When a user begins to open the door, the gas cylinder exerts a turning movement about the bell crank which assists opening movement of the door. Conversely, when a user begins to close the door, the bell crank turns in the opposite direction and exerts a compressive force on the cylinder, providing a “soft close” function.
