  • Publication number: 20070121328
    Abstract: This invention is a non-ferrous lighting fixture and non-ferrous lighting system that can be used in areas with high magnetic fields or that require low EMI emissions, such as MRI operating rooms. This invention uses LED's to provide a high-intensity, quality white or other color light that is softened by reflectors and diffusers, and can be dimmed to provide flexible lighting levels. The flexible lighting levels can range from the maximum light used for patient procedures and equipment servicing/maintenance to the lowest light level used to keep a patient comfortable while facing upward on the MRI scanning table. Moreover, by using an aluminum substrate printed circuit board, this invention resolves the thermal issues associated with high-intensity lighting. Not only does this invention resolve glare and hot spot issues, it protects the user and installer from electrical hazards associated with potentially high voltages, as well.

  • Patent number: 4811250
    Abstract: A system is disclosed for determining the positions of a set of points on a body and comparing those points to a set of reference points. The system includes a data acquisition apparatus comprised of emitters, receivers, and microprocessor controls. The emitters are mounted at various predetermined positions on the body, for example a vehicle body or frame, and are triggered in an optimal fashion by the microprocessors. Triggering generates a single acoustic burst signal from an emitter. An array of microphones acts as the receiver. After generation of the signal, the microprocessor initializes an external clock which measures the travel time of the signal from the emitter to the receivers. By repeating this process a number of times, data is acquired which yields the three-dimensional coordinates of a given point when processed by a microprocessor.
