  • Patent number: 10188395
    Abstract: A delivery system for an implantable vaso-occluding device. A non-planar heating chamber is disposed proximate to a distal end of an advancing member. Protruding from an interior surface of the non-planar heating chamber is a detachment fiber made from a polymeric material and having a closed distal end. At least one heating element is disposed on the interior surface of the non-planar heating chamber to produce sufficient heat to sever the detachment fiber. An articulation point is established between the vaso-occluding device and the delivery system. The vaso-occluding device remains at all times substantially self-centered while being advanced.

  • Patent number: 9825589
    Abstract: Various emitters and emitter systems are disclosed. For instance, in various embodiments, an emitter can comprise a substrate, an insulator bonded to the substrate, a graphene layer bonded to the insulator, and a first electrical contact and a second electrical contact. The first electrical contact can be bonded over a first portion of the graphene layer, and the second electrical contact can be bonded over a second portion of the graphene layer. The graphene layer electrically couples the first electrical contact and the second electrical contact and is configured to receive the application of a pulsed input voltage between the first electrical contact and the second electrical contact and to radiate radio frequency (RF) energy. An emitter system can comprise a plurality of emitters, each disposed on a single integrated circuit.

  • Patent number: 8786991
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention relate to automated three phase power monitoring systems. Embodiments of the invention include a zero crossing activated switch having an overload condition signal input that is electrically connected to a signal output terminal. The zero crossing activated switch prohibits conduction of the overload condition signal to a neutral ground RMS reactive breaker control mechanism until the zero crossing activated switch determines that at least one of three alternating currents crosses zero relative to a neutral signal.
