  • Patent number: 10412853
    Abstract: A storage system includes a computer storage compartment, a first shelf, and a first power configuration unit. The first power configuration unit has a first base and a first bridge, the first bridge extending from the first base and spanning above the first shelf. A first plurality of dividers are connected to the first bridge and extend downward toward the first shelf, the first plurality of dividers forming first individual storage bays within the computer storage compartment and the first plurality of dividers do not contact the first shelf. The power configuration units are modular to enable the storage system to selectively contain power configuration units designed to provide AC power, DC power, or a mix of both AC and DC power within the storage system depending on the power requirements of the portable computing devices to be stored therein.

  • Patent number: 10283952
    Abstract: A rapidly deployable floor power system includes a base unit for supplying low voltage DC power to one or more foldable power tracks. Each foldable power track has a set of rigid track sections with exposed track power contacts on a top surface. The rigid track sections are electrically and mechanically interconnected by flexible track connectors that enable the power track to be folded when the power track is to be moved or stored, and unfolded for rapid deployment in an area to be supplied with power. The rigid track sections lie approximately flush with the floor to minimize tripping potential. Magnetic connectors engage the track to obtain power from the track, and are used to electrically interconnect adjacent tracks. A power distribution unit supplies power via low voltage ports such as USB ports and/or via one or more power whips equipped with barrel jack tips.

  • Publication number: 20140174272
    Abstract: A power saw includes a base portion, a support assembly, a cutting arm, a blade guard, a linkage arm, and a biasing member. The support assembly is supported by the base portion. The cutting arm is supported by the support assembly and is configured to rotatably support a saw blade. The cutting arm is movable between a lower position adjacent to the base portion and an upper position spaced apart from the base portion. The blade guard is rotatably supported by the cutting arm and is configured to receive a portion of the saw blade therein. The linkage arm includes a first end portion pivotally connected to the blade guard, and a second end portion movably supported by the support assembly. The biasing member is operably connected to the second end portion and is configured to bias the linkage arm.

  • Patent number: 7399130
    Abstract: A printer for printing indicia upon media with print head and platen assemblies with ease of exchange and re-alignment features. The print head may be coupled to a print head bracket, the print head bracket removably coupled to the top cover of the printer by, for example, guide tabs of a print head support structure which mate with guide slots of the print head bracket. The print head bracket having alignment forks for aligning the print head with the platen. The printer also includes a platen bracket for maintaining the platen in the printer. The platen bracket being easy to remove to replace the platen.

  • Publication number: 20050258301
    Abstract: A media centering spindle assembly with a spindle body and a clutch drive assembly. The spindle body includes a centering mechanism such as a rack and pinion or centering slat. The centering mechanism is configured to center and retain a media roll, ribbon supply or the like along the spindle body and includes at least one spring tab. The spring tab is deflectable from an initial position to a second position below a surface of the spindle body to allow the mounting of the media roll or the like. The assembly may be further configured as rotatable about a longitudinal axis of the spindle body with the clutch drive assembly having a friction level adjustable by rotation of a clutch adjuster about the longitudinal axis of the spindle body.
