  • Patent number: 10403462
    Abstract: A fuse assembly includes an insulating block having an upper surface, a lower surface, and a side surface therebetween. The insulating block defines cavities extending therethrough. Each cavity defines a resilient lock arm. A fuse assembly also includes a first terminal stud secured within a first cavity by a first lock arm, a second terminal stud secured within a second cavity by a second lock arm, and a bus bar disposed parallel to the bottom surface of the insulating block. The bus bar is interconnected to the first terminal stud by a lower terminal connected to the bus bar and an upper terminal disposed parallel to the upper surface. The bus bar is interconnected to the second terminal stud by a fusible link having a lower fuse terminal connected to the bus bar and an upper fuse terminal disposed generally parallel to the upper surface.

  • Publication number: 20190236474
    Abstract: Dynamic generation and implementation of assignment mappings of data items in large data files to distributed processors to achieve objectives such as reduced overall processing time like. Any appropriate key (e.g., character string) can be identified or obtained for each data item in a data file and the file can be segmented into sequential data blocks, where each data block includes a set of data items. The data items in each of a first plurality of the blocks (e.g., sampled block set) may be initially sorted into one of a plurality of key ranges of a search space (each corresponding to a different respective processor) and analyses conducted on the data items totals in each key range. The key range boundaries can be adjusted by accounting for uncertainty in the sample estimates to more evenly distribute data items from all blocks sent to each processor and thereby achieve the objective.

  • Patent number: 9917560
    Abstract: Disclosed is an amplifier for incremental wattage reduction. The amplifier comprises a first pair of pentode vacuum tubes and a second pair of pentode vacuum tubes arranged in a push-pull-parallel power configuration. Each pentode vacuum tube from the first pair of pentode vacuum tubes and the second pair of pentode vacuum tubes includes a plate element, a screen grid element and a cathode element. The amplifier further comprises a single multi-position user switch to configure the first pair of pentode vacuum tubes and the second pair of pentode vacuum tubes to achieve varying wattage outputs of the amplifier by deactivating at least one of the first pair of pentode vacuum tubes or the second pair of vacuum tubes, and causing at least one of the first pair of pentode vacuum tubes or the second pair of vacuum tubes to operate as triodes.

  • Patent number: 9477743
    Abstract: A system and method for load balancing between components of a distributed data grid. The system and method support dynamic data migration of selected data partitions in response to detection of hot spots in the data grid which degrade system performance. In embodiments, the system and method relies upon analysis of per-partition performance statistics for both the identification of data nodes which would benefit from data migration and the selection of data nodes for migration. Tuning of the data migration thresholds and method provides for optimizing throughput of the data grid to avoid degradation of performance resulting from load-induced hot spots.
