  • Publication number: 20140182441
    Abstract: A cutter die has an upper body and a lower body having first and second cutting blades which encapsulate a rope. A first blade holder retains the upper body and a second blade holder retains the lower body. The first blade holder has an edge for supporting the wire rope and the second blade holder has an edge for supporting the wire rope. The first cutting blade and the second cutting blade can have cutting edges which are cantered and offset. A cutter tool has a first cutting blade and first retainer; a second cutting blade and a second retainer; and a cutting jaw assembly. The first and second cutting blades and said first and second retainers are secured to first and second jaws of jaw assembly and positive stops are formed on the first and second jaws.

  • Publication number: 20130247385
    Abstract: A compound wire rope cutter has a first handle and a second handle; a first lever and a second lever; and a first cutting jaw and a second cutting jaw. The first cutting jaw is formed at a distal end of the first lever. A second cutting jaw is formed at a distal end of the second lever. A first pivot pivotally connects the first handle and the second handle. A second pivot pivotally connects the first lever to the first handle. A third pivot pivotally connects the second lever to the second handle. A fourth pivot pivotally connects the first lever to the second lever. A first mechanical advantage is defined as a pivot lever length divided by a pivot jaw length, and a second mechanical advantage is defined as a handle length divided by a pivot handle length. A compound mechanical advantage is obtained by multiplying the first and second mechanical advantages together.

  • Publication number: 20040245008
    Abstract: A cable closure is provided which adapted to accommodate different size cables and different splices. The closure includes end plates designed to receive various size cables without requiring modification during field use. The end plates are interchangeable with stainless steel and injection molded closure shells. A sealant is provided which allows multiple re-entries into closure shell. Bolts are assembled on the exterior of the closure shell to eliminate potential misalignments between the bolts and closure shell holes. Washers are used within the end plates to seal holes not used for storing cables. A cutter is provided which cuts the washers in one 360° rotation thus eliminating weak points in the washer due to multiple cuts. Alternately a plug is provided for the end plate holes which are adaptable to several size holes to reduce the number of plugs required.

  • Patent number: 6595472
    Abstract: A cable clamp (10) includes two interchangeable half-portions (14, 16). Each half-portion (14, 16) includes an outer side, an inner side including a cable receiving region (18, 20), a hinge region (30, 32) arranged below the cable receiving region (18, 20), and a suspending region (70) arranged above the cable receiving region (18, 20). The suspending region (70) is adapted to receive an associated support element (72). The two half-portions (14, 16) are adapted to cooperatively form a unitary cable clamp body having a cable channel (22) defined by the two cable receiving regions (18, 20) and a hinge (36) including the two hinge regions (30, 32). A tightener (54) is arranged above the cable channel (22) for drawing the half-portions (14, 16) together about the hinge (36) to clamp an associated cable (12) within the cable channel (22).

  • Patent number: 4831476
    Abstract: A disc drive isolation system including a disc drive isolation module is disclosed. The isolation module is disposed in the enclosure and has an outer body and an inner body supported within the outer body with the disc drive mounted within the inner body. The mounting of the inner body within the outer body sequesters the disc drive against vibration and shock applied to the outer body. This arrangement enables almost any disc drive to be operated in an industrial environment independent of the shock and vibration characteristics of the environment.

  • Patent number: 4685303
    Abstract: A disc drive isolation system including an environment control enclosure and a disc drive isolation module is disclosed. A thermo-electric heat pump is mounted to the enclosure for cooling the interior of the enclosure and a fan circulates air within the enclosure. A humidity sensor controls the heat pump and the fan in response to the sensed humidity of the interior air. First and second temperature sensors control the heat pump andthe disc drive, respectively. The isolation module is disposed in the enclosure and has an outer body and an inner body supported within the outer body with the disc drive mounted within the inner body. The mounting of the inner body within the outer body sequesters the disc drive against vibration and shock applied to the outer body. This arrangement enables almost any disc drive to be operated in an industrial environment independent of the temperature, humidity, cleanliness, shock and vibration characteristics of the environment.
