  • Patent number: 10557590
    Abstract: A clamp-type mount capable of being clamped to objects of a wide range of sizes includes: first and second clamping members; a clamping-member pivot shaft pivotally provided in the clamping members so that the clamping members can enter a clamping state and a releasing state; a tightening pivot shaft pivotally connected to the second clamping member; a tightening threaded rod with a first end penetrating the first clamping member and an opposite second end fixedly connected to the tightening pivot shaft; a tightening knob threadedly connected to the first end of the tightening threaded rod so as to be displaced along the tightening threaded rod when rotated and thereby force the second clamping member toward the first clamping member; and a spherical coupling head fixedly provided on the first clamping member to couple with an adapter, through which a supporting base can be linked to the spherical coupling head.

  • Patent number: 10545467
    Abstract: A system for controlling a plurality of facilities includes a plurality of facility modules for controlling operation of a facility, each facility module corresponding to a respective facility of the plurality of facilities, and a control module communicatively coupled to the plurality of facility modules. The control module has access to a plurality of configuration parameter groups, each configuration parameter group of the plurality of configuration parameter groups including at least one configuration parameter, and association logic defining an association between at least some of the plurality of facility modules and at least one configuration parameter group. Upon a configuration parameter group being modified, the control module is configured to identify the modified configuration parameter group and identify from the association logic facilities associated with the modified configuration parameter group, and communicate the modified configuration parameter group to each associated facility modules.

  • Patent number: 10208777
    Abstract: A bracket for holding and locking tablet-type electronic devices of various sizes securely includes a bracket base, two horizontally clamping members, and a vertically clamping member. The front side of the bracket base includes two horizontal rail grooves, which are adjacent to the bottom side of the bracket base and to two corresponding lateral edges of the bracket base respectively, and a vertical rail groove, which is adjacent to the top side and the center of the bracket base. Each horizontally clamping member can be inserted horizontally into the corresponding horizontal rail groove to any depth desired and then fixed in position. The vertically clamping member can be inserted vertically into the vertical rail groove to any depth desired and then fixed in position. Each of the clamping members is adjustable in position to adapt to the size of the tablet-type electronic device to be supported on the bracket.
