  • Publication number: 20130123977
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing canisters used to automatically dispense medication are provided. Canisters are configurable via a design process and a build process to accurately dispense a variety of medications. Design profiles are created and stored by a canister management system, and are federated to workstations used to build and fill the canisters, and to workstations used to dispense the medication. Information related to the build process, the fill process, and the dispense process is also federated by the system. The system also enables the transmission of other types of messages between client applications on the workstations and the canister management system. The system is useful to federate data regardless of a structure of a supply chain used to design, build, distribute, and use the canisters.

  • Publication number: 20130095293
    Abstract: Disclosed painted roof coverings and related methods of manufacturing such painted roof coverings that use a color coating over the roof coverings instead of embedded pre-colored rock granules on the exposed surface of the roof coverings. By painting a roof covering with a color coating, any kind of top surfacing material, such as rock, plastic, mineral, man-made, or organic granules, may be used in place of the pre-colored rock granules. In some embodiments, it is desirable to size the top surfacing material to provide adequate UV protection and coverage to the weatherproofing asphalt material located below the top surfacing material. Further, the color of the shingles may be accurately matched between batches of shingles, between manufacturing facilities, and even between manufacturers. In addition, designs may be painted on the surface of the roof covering, which was previously impossible using pre-colored granules.

  • Patent number: 8384886
    Abstract: A building roof monitoring system that includes a fiber optic filament positioned between a water barrier layer (e.g., roof membrane) and a roof substrate layer of the building roof. The fiber optic filament may be part of a sensing layer that includes the fiber optic filament carried by a water transport layer configured to draw water coming into contact with the water transport layer into contact with the fiber optic filament. An optical analyzer injects laser light into the fiber optic filament and detects changes in propagation of the laser light through the fiber optic filament indicative of water coming in contact with the fiber optic filament to detect a roof leak. A response system including a controller, alarm or remote communication unit operatively connected to the optical analyzer responds to the roof leak detected by the optical analyzer.

  • Publication number: 20040134649
    Abstract: A truck-mounted carpet-cleaning system that replaces the separate heat exchangers used in conventional systems having a single unit. It also merges several exhausts before they are used in the exchanger. This allows the system to be able to better regulate the temperature of the water. This improved regulation eliminates the need for a water bypass system. Because of the improved heat exchange system, the solenoids, sensors, thermo relief valves, bypass orifices and other components found in traditional systems can be eliminated. This results in a more reliable system, with more tightly regulated water temperature.

  • Patent number: 6353604
    Abstract: A bidirectional digital data communication system which generate phase coherent upstream clock and carrier signals from recovered downstream clock generated from a master clock in a central unit. The preferred species uses any downstream clock rate and generates a phase coherent upstream clock so long as the two clock rates can be related by the ratio M/N where M and N are integers. One embodiment uses an MCNS downstream and an SCDMA upstream and uses MNCN timestamp messages in the downstream to achieve an estimate of RU frame offset prior to establishing frame alignment using a ranging process. The use of timestamp messages to estimate the offset is aided by a low jitter method for inserting timestamp messages by avoiding straddling of MPEG packet headers with the sync message. Clock slip is detected by counting upstream clock cycles over a predetermined downstream clock interval and the RU transmitter is shut down if slip is detected to prevent ISI interference from misaligned codes.
