  • Patent number: 10351019
    Abstract: An actuator assembly for moving a vehicle seat on a track includes an actuation cable having a first end and a second end, an actuation gear unit having an output gear with a spool feature attached to the first end of the actuation cable, a first biasing member, and an actuator in communication with the actuation gear unit. The output gear rotates about a first axis, the actuation cable partially windable upon the spool feature. Characteristically, the actuator when actuated rotates the actuation gear unit to wind the actuation cable onto the spool feature thereby retracting the actuation cable from a first position to a second position. Advantageously, the first biasing member biases the actuation gear unit to move the actuation cable from the second position to the first position.

  • Patent number: 10341420
    Abstract: Approaches are described for a client (e.g., an application executing on a computing device) requiring a particular storage format to provide information describing its storage format to a service, such as a multi-tenant computing environment. The service contains data that the client desires to acquire, but in various embodiments, the data on the service is in a different storage format than the format required by the client. The service receives the information describing the storage format and processes the data accordingly, and then provides the processed data to the client in the format required by the client.

  • Patent number: 10146454
    Abstract: A method is provided for performance by an I/O Coordination module of a computing device operating as a data storage system in order to obtain and process physical extent mappings in the context of an XCOPY Lite or XCOPY type operation. The method involves breaking down the source region into physical source extents with reference to a container filesystem representing the logical volume of the source as a file. The I/O Coordination module is then able to separately process each of these physical source extents and also obtain its corresponding physical destination extents with reference to the container filesystem, which also represents the logical volume of the destination as a file. The I/O Coordination module is then able to cause integrated copy commands to be issued to an underlying physical storage driver. An apparatus, system, and computer program product for performing a similar method are also provided.

  • Patent number: 8443648
    Abstract: A continuous emissions monitoring system is in fluid communication with a flue stack conducting exhaust gas from a combustion source. The continuous emissions monitor system comprises an analyzer for measuring concentrations of an analyte present in the exhaust gas. A probe is in fluid communication with the flue stack to acquire a sample of exhaust gas from the flue stack. The probe is also in fluid communication with and located upstream of the analyzer. The probe tends to remove analyte from the sample. A calibration checking system is in fluid communication with the probe. The calibration checking system includes a source that provides a flow of a known concentration of calibration material to be measured by the analyzer. The calibration material is the same as the analyte. A humidifier is associated with the source to provide moisture to a flow of calibration material.

  • Patent number: 8317759
    Abstract: An infusion set for subcutaneous delivery of an infusant. The infusion set may include a base removably attachable to an infusion site and a connector temporarily lockable to the base. The connector can engage the base in a plurality of orientations. The connector locks into the base after at least partial rotation of the connector about the base. The connector may include flexible arms which unlock the connector from the base. The base includes a cannula for insertion through the infusion site. The connector includes a tubing for passing the infusant. The infusant is subcutaneously passable from the tubing through the cannula when the connector is attached to the base. The infusion set may also include a hub removably attachable to the base that includes a needle that extends through the base and the cannula and a guard removably attachable to the base opposite the hub for surrounding the needle.

  • Patent number: 8316196
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer readable media for improving synchronization performance after partially completed writes are disclosed. According to one aspect, a method for improving synchronization performance after partially completed writes includes receiving, from a requesting entity, data to be written to storage. The data to be written is sent to each of a plurality of data storage entities, including a primary data storage entity and at least one secondary data storage entity for providing a duplicate of the primary data storage entity. For each of the plurality of data storage entities, the portion of the data that was stored to the respective data storage entity is determined.

  • Patent number: 7607670
    Abstract: Provided are wedging and clamping mechanisms for securing an axle to a suspension member. The suspension member has a integral axle shell for seating the axle to be attached. An axle wedging shell is provided which mates to the axle shell via aligning angled grooves and flanges which, as the flanges are forced into the grooves, creates a significant clamping force trapping the axle in place. The orientation and placement of angled grooves and flanges varies through several embodiments. Some embodiments alternately use a retention plate. Adhesive may be applied to the axle and the inner surfaces of the axle shell and wedge member to limit axle twist or rotation.
