  • Publication number: 20210011794
    Abstract: In an exemplary embodiment, computer circuitry determines term characterization values for terms in computer performance logs and generates vectors that indicate the term characterization values. The computer circuitry determines vector similarity scores for these vectors. The computer circuitry aggregates the computer performance logs into aggregated logs based on the vector similarity scores. The computer circuitry selects rare logs from these aggregated logs and obtains computer performance anomaly labels for the rare logs. The computer circuitry matches new computer performance logs with the rare logs to detect the labeled computer performance anomalies.

  • Patent number: 10890474
    Abstract: A fluid monitoring module includes a flow sensing device and a controller disposed in an enclosure. The flow sensing device includes a body including an inlet port, an outlet port, an upstream sensor port, a downstream sensor port, and a flow passage disposed between the inlet port and the outlet port, and between the upstream sensor port and the downstream sensor port. A first fluid sensor is assembled with the upstream sensor port, and a second fluid sensor is assembled with the downstream sensor port. The controller is in circuit communication with the first and second fluid sensors for receiving at least one of pressure indicating signals and temperature indicating signals from each of the first and second fluid sensors, and for measuring fluid data based on the received signals.

  • Publication number: 20200391874
    Abstract: A method for managing icing conditions on a rotary aircraft via one or more ice protection controllers. The method includes steps for receiving an icing condition signal from an icing rate sensor at an ice protection controller, determining, in response to the icing condition signal, a de-icing signal based at least in part a liquid water content (LWC). The method further includes steps for transmitting, via a digital communication bus disposed in at least part of a slip ring assembly, the de-icing signal to a upper distributor to cause the upper distributor to transmit power to one or more heating elements for a respective rotor blade.

  • Patent number: 10853796
    Abstract: Techniques are described for automatically presenting workflow(s) in an application based at least partly on detected signal(s). A radio-frequency signal may be emitted from a transceiver included in, attached to, or otherwise associated with a payment card. The signal may be received by a transceiver of a user device when the card is in proximity to the device and, in response, an application may launch a workflow including one or more pages of content in the application. The launched workflow may include functionality for activating a payment card, based on a determination that the card is not yet activated. The launched workflow may also include functionality for viewing account information, based on a determination that the card is already activated.

  • Publication number: 20200373622
    Abstract: Electrolyte solutions including at least one anhydrous fluoride salt and at least one non-aqueous solvent are presented. The fluoride salt includes an organic cation having a charge center (e.g., N, P, S, or O) that does not possess a carbon in the ?-position or does not possess a carbon in the ?-position having a bound hydrogen. This salt structure facilitates its ability to be made anhydrous without decomposition. Example anhydrous fluoride salts include (2,2-dimethylpropyl)trimethylammonium fluoride and bis(2,2-dimethylpropyl)dimethylammonium fluoride. Combining these fluoride salts with at least one fluorine-containing non-aqueous solvent (e.g., bis(2,2,2-trifluoroethyl)ether; (BTFE)) promotes solubility of the salt within the non-aqueous solvents. The solvent may be a mixture of at least one non-aqueous, fluorine-containing solvent and at least one other non-aqueous, fluorine or non-fluorine containing solvent (e.g., BTFE and propionitrile or dimethoxyethane).

  • Patent number: 10843831
    Abstract: A gripper having jaws (11,12) is transported from a first position (FIG. 2) in which it grips a case blank (1) in a flat, folded condition to a second position (FIG. 4) in which the case (8) is erected. Gripping devices (13) on the jaws (11,12) are aligned with one another when the gripper is in its first position. The gripping devices (13) on the jaws (11,12) are oriented at right angles to one another when the gripper is in its second position. Mutual rotation is effected between the jaws (11,12) as the gripper is moved from its first to its second position, in order to unfold a case blank (1) gripped by the gripper jaws (11,12).
