  • Patent number: 10794939
    Abstract: A system of sensors associated with a branched conductor of an AC power line using the conductor as the communication medium between different sensors. The communication is carried out at frequencies higher than the powerline frequency. At least one sensor is provided in every branch in the vicinity of every branching point of the conductor. Synchronous measurements are carried out of the root mean square current passing through every branch of the conductor and the direction of energy flow in the branch. Results of the measurements are regularly reported throughout the system. An arrangement is provided for analyzing the results of the measurements to determine the graph topology of the branched conductor and ascertain the distribution of the root mean square current passing through every branch of the graph.

  • Patent number: 6944407
    Abstract: In analyzing radiation from a communication link, single-photon counting can be used to advantage especially at low levels of radiation energy, e.g. in the detection of optical radiation. Preferred detection techniques include methods in which (i) received optical radiation is intensity-modulated in accordance with a preselected code, (ii) wherein it is the optical radiation which is intensity-modulated with the preselected code, and (iii) wherein the radiation modulated with a preselected code is received. For registration of the signals received by a sensing element of a single-photon detector, time of arrival is recorded, optionally in conjunction with registration of time intervals. Advantageously, in the interest of minimizing the number of pulses missed due to close temporal spacing of pulses, D-triggers can be included in counting circuitry.

  • Publication number: 20040021100
    Abstract: A fiber optic sensor for measuring level of fluid consists of an ordered array of multiple optical fibers. Each fiber contains a single sensitive element located on a specific level within the range of fluid level change that transmits different light signals depending on either the sensitive element is immersed in the fluid or located above the level of liquid. The input of the fiber bundle is illuminated by an encoded light beam. A decoding system provides detection of the light patterns at the output and processes it to display the readings. Number of fibers in the bunch determines the number of sensitive sections positioned at different levels and, correspondingly, the accuracy of level measurement.

  • Patent number: 6475362
    Abstract: A novel method of spatial compression of a DNA sample inside the capillary for the gel capillary electrophoresis and an article for operating the method are disclosed. In this method, after the electrokinetic injection, the sample is compressed using the reverse electric field. A special DNA barrier material is used to contain the sample in the capillary. We expect that this Electro Static Compression (ESC) can increase the DNA concentration in the capillary by orders of magnitude. In the proposed method and article the injection and compression of the DNA sample are followed by subsequent electrophoretic separation in any kind of sequencing container (for instance glass capillary). The use of the ESC method will allow the increase of the length and the quality of the read, as well as reduction of the DNA consumption.
