  • Patent number: 9854973
    Abstract: A non-touch thermometer to measure a temperature that includes a microprocessor, a wireless communication subsystem that is operably coupled to the microprocessor and that is operable to transmit a representation of the temperature, a battery operably coupled to the microprocessor, a single button operably coupled to the microprocessor, a digital infrared sensor operably coupled to the microprocessor with no analog-to-digital converter operably coupled between the digital infrared sensor and the microprocessor, the digital infrared sensor having only digital readout ports, and a display device operably coupled to the microprocessor, wherein the microprocessor is operable to receive from the digital readout ports a digital signal that is representative of an infrared signal detected by the digital infrared sensor and the microprocessor is operable to determine the temperature from the digital signal that is representative of the infrared signal, wherein the non-touch thermometer does not support specific disco

  • Publication number: 20170299033
    Abstract: A powertrain system in a machine includes a transmission, and a transmission drive mechanism coupled between the transmission and an engine. The transmission drive mechanism includes a split path architecture where a first input gear receives a torque input from a driveshaft and a second input gear receives a torque input from a variator. The transmission drive mechanism is thereby structured to operate the transmission at a range of speeds that is not dependent upon a speed of the engine, enabling the engine to operate at an engine speed set point or with an optimum engine speed range.
