  • Publication number: 20200068856
    Abstract: A honeybee collector includes a collector body having a sidewall with an outer surface and an inner surface. The inner surface defines a brood frame slot and a funnel defined below the brood frame slot. The funnel is angled towards a bottom opening defined by a bottom rim of the sidewall. An upper rim of the sidewall defines a top opening leading into the brood frame slot, and the brood frame slot is sized to receive a brood frame. A catch bottle is used for catching bees. A connector couples a mouth of the catch bottle to the bottom rim of the collector body.

  • Patent number: 6240666
    Abstract: An information carrier for receiving at least one information data. The information carrier includes an inflatable hollow body made of a flexible, foldable material and a blower for blowing an air flow into the inner part of the hollow body. The blower is arranged in or on the hollow body in such a way that the air flow produced by the blower builds up an overpressure within the hollow body whereby the hollow body adopts a stationary and stable rectangular frame shape over which the information banner may be fastened, more particularly removably fastened, while at least partly covering the open space within the frame.

  • Patent number: 4941833
    Abstract: A controlled impedance connector assembly comprised of a mutually engageable plug and receptacle for termination of coaxial cable leads in a manner which enables rapid attachment to and detachment from a user board of a very large number of signal leads while ensuring an acceptable level of controlled impedance from the coaxial cable to the user board. The receptacle includes a backup plate and a plurality of metallized grounding segments fixed to the backup plate and having a plurality of spaced parallel terminal receiving bores therein extending between opposed surfaces. An insulation plate is fixed to each grounding segment and overlies one of the surfaces. A plurality of pin contacts are fixed to the insulation plate such that a head member extends into an associated terminal receiving bore and an oppositely directed tail member is adapted for termination at available circuitry.

  • Patent number: 4889500
    Abstract: A connector assembly enables a dense grouping of contacts to be joined in one step to a printed circuit board (PCB) while assuring that impedances are matched among all components. A receptacle intended for mounting on the PCB matingly receives a plug which carries terminal contacts of multiple coaxial cable leads. The plug includes a honeycomb grounding block to engageably receive the outer conductor of each coaxial terminal, an inner conductive sleeve being electrically coupled to a signal lead by a first contact. Signal pin contacts within the receptacle and electrically coupled with the PCB are electrically coupled with each inner conductive sleeve when the plug is inserted into the receptacle. Likewise, ground pin contacts within the receptacle and electrically coupled with the PCB have second and third spaced resilient contacts, respectively, engaging the grounding block at distances farther from the nearer to the PCB than the first contacts.
