  • Publication number: 20200233450
    Abstract: Systems and apparatuses include a control circuit and a switching circuit. The control circuit is structured to communicate with a real-time-clock battery and to selectively communicate with a vehicle battery. The control circuit is structured in an OFF arrangement when a wake supply voltage is received from the vehicle battery and in an ON arrangement when no wake supply voltage is received. The switching circuit is structured to provide communication between the real-time-clock battery and a real-time-clock power pin of a controller with a voltage drop of about 0.1 volts or less when the control circuit is in the ON arrangement and to inhibit communication between the real-time-clock battery and the real-time-clock power pin when the control circuit is in the OFF arrangement.

  • Patent number: 10434207
    Abstract: Sterilization apparatus comprising a sterilization instrument configured to be inserted through the instrument channel of a surgical scoping device and a withdrawal device for withdrawing the sterilization instrument from the instrument channel at a predetermined rate. The sterilization instrument comprises an elongate probe having a probe tip with a first electrode and a second electrode arranged to produce an electric field from received RF and/or microwave frequency EM energy. In operation the instrument may disinfect an inner surface of the instrument channel by emitting energy while being withdrawn through the channel.

  • Patent number: 6010362
    Abstract: A board mount for an electrical transformer is provided by a unitary body having a wire termination section and a boardlock. The body is mountable to a transformer bobbin with an end of a transformer wire being terminated in the wire termination section and with the boardlock extending externally of the bobbin. The transformer can be electrically and mechanically mated with a circuit board by inserting the boardlock into a hole in the circuit board.
