  • Patent number: 7757906
    Abstract: A device comprises a container includes a dispensing mechanism for enabling pressurized dispensable contents contained within an interior space of the container to be selectively dispensed therefrom. A retention clip structure is attached to an exterior portion of the container and includes a clip portion that is biased to a closed configuration for enabling the clip portion to securely engage a portion of an article for attaching the container to the article. A cap assembly includes a cap body attached to the container and a trigger moveably attached to the cap body. The trigger includes a handle portion and a dispensing mechanism engagement portion attached to the handle portion. The handle portion is movable from a rest position to a displaced position for causing the dispensing mechanism actuation portion to act on the dispensing mechanism such that the pressurized dispensable contents are dispensed from within the interior space of the container.

  • Publication number: 20040041819
    Abstract: A system and method of generating a fulfillment order using an imaging device having a display. The method comprises the steps of: accessing at least one digital image; displaying, on the display, the at least one digital image; providing selection means for selecting the at least one digital image; displaying, on the display, a fulfillment order menu responsive to the selecting of the at least one digital image while displaying at least a portion of the selected at least one digital image, the fulfillment order menu being associated with the selected at least one digital image and comprising members to modify the fulfillment order for the selected at least one digital image.

  • Patent number: 5870332
    Abstract: A high reliability logic circuit designed to withstand a single event upset (SEU) induced by an ion transitioning through a semiconductor structure is embodied in a memory circuit which includes a first memory cell and a second memory cell. The first and second memory cells receive a first input signal and a second input signal. The memory cells contain a logic circuit for producing a logic signal output driven by either a pullup or pulldown driver when the first and second input signals are of a desired logic state and produces a high impedance output if either input signal is not of their respective desired logic states.The memory cells also have sufficient nodal capacitance such that the output from the first or second memory cell will not be corrupted by an SEU in the logic circuit of either the first or second memory cell.The outputs of the first memory cell and second memory cell are further summed in analog fashion to produce a single output from the memory circuit.

  • Patent number: 5448372
    Abstract: A storage and retrieval mechanism for a digital image processing system employs a reduced capacity frame store in the playback device. A plurality of photographic images captured on a photographic recording medium are digitized for processing and subsequent display. Digitized images are stored on a compact disc. When the disc is inserted into a playback device for driving a color TV monitor, the playback device decodes header information representative of image orientation, so that the image will be read from the disc and stored in the reduced capacity frame store for subsequent read out and display in an upright orientation. A memory control mechanism employs a decimation/interpolation operator to interface the imagery data from the disc to the frame store.

  • Patent number: 5227789
    Abstract: The K most frequently occurring symbols in an image represented by an alphabet of N symbols are mapped to a set of K codewords. The length of each codeword is an inverse function of the frequency of occurrence of the corresponding symbol in the image and the longest codeword is of length d bits. The remaining N-K symbols are mapped in order of their magnitude to a set of supplementary codewords of a uniform maximum length D bits. The d most significant bits of each supplementary codeword form a prefix which is uniform within each set and specifies whether the corresponding symbol is positive or negative. The remaining or least significant D-d bits of each supplementary codeword comprise a suffix and are mapped in order of bit position to progressively more narrow ranges of symbol values of the remaining N-K symbols.

  • Patent number: 5157625
    Abstract: A memory cell employs four interconnected modules, each having two inputs and a truth table that has a logic level for input states and provides for a high impedance output state for unallowed states which differ from an allowed state by the status of one input. The interconnection is such that each module of a pair has as inputs the outputs of both members of the other pair, so that if one module changes state, the inputs to the members of the other will be in one of the unallowed states that produces a high impedance output. Thus, a radiation induced change of state in one module will not propagate through the system, but will be restored to an allowed state by action of the unaffected modules.

  • Patent number: 5105206
    Abstract: A thermal printer is disclosed which is particularly suitable for making slide transparencies. The printer includes a laser which provides the necessary thermal energy to effect a transfer of dye from a donor element to a receiver element. A beam from the laser passes through suitable optics and is scanned onto the receiver element by a galvonometer. In order to insure the transfer of dye from the donor at a suitable resolution and with sufficient speed, a relatively high-powered single transverse mode coherent laser is used.

  • Patent number: 4649288
    Abstract: A power supply system for supplying electrical energy at an I.S. level to an electrical machine e.g. of a mineral mining machine, comprises two low speed generators A and B mechanically coupled together at coupling 3 and rotatable by means of a drive shaft 2, the mechanical input at the drive shaft 2 producing a separate, isolated electrical output at each of the generators A and B, the output from a first generator A being fed to an I.S. barrier 10, whereby an I.S. power supply is made available to power a first circuit 4, the output from the second generator B being fed to a non-I.S. supply circuit 8, and an I.S. coupling device 7 between the I.S. circuit 4 and the non-I.S. circuit 8, to achieve electrical and physical segregation of the circuits 4 and 8.

  • Patent number: 4270800
    Abstract: A machine pre-start warning device comprises at least one water spray nozzle and at least one temperature dependent resistor, the or each temperature dependent resistor being located with respect to a nozzle as to lie in the water jet emitted in use by the nozzle. The temperature dependent resistor is connected to a control circuit to actuate the control circuit upon sensing a water jet which circuit enables machine start-up to occur when the circuit is actuated and which otherwise prevents start-up from occurring.
