  • Publication number: 20190279514
    Abstract: Methods and systems for a flight display system are provided. The method includes: commanding a vertical situation display (VSD) and a lateral navigation display (ND) to render, concurrently, a viewing segment of a flight plan. The method includes receiving a user input selecting a section of the viewing segment, the user input being received on only one of the VSD and the ND. The method continues by commanding, concurrently, the VSD and the ND to visually distinguish the section, and to demark the section on the VSD with starting points and ending points. The method identifies a flight parameter, and for the flight parameter, includes (a) determining which display, among the VSD and the ND, is appropriate for the rendering of flight parameter information; (b) generating flight parameter information based on (a); and (c) overlaying the flight parameter information on the appropriate display.

  • Patent number: 10174491
    Abstract: A toilet bowl unit includes a toilet bowl with an inner toilet bowl surface having an upper peripheral portion, a central peripheral portion and a lower sump portion. A peripheral slot separates a lower edge of the upper peripheral portion from an upper edge of the central peripheral portion. A peripheral water channel is concealed inside the toilet bowl unit and has a side wall which is a weir over which water may flow into the peripheral slot. The slot has a discharge opening which is substantially horizontal at the rear and sides of the inner toilet bowl surface (for discharging a curtain of water) and includes at least one serpentine portion at the front of the inner toilet bowl surface (for discharging a jet of water). The horizontal portion(s) of the discharge opening are positioned just below a seat platform surface in order to minimize the unwashed area at the top of the inner toilet bowl surface.

  • Patent number: 7403012
    Abstract: A detector for detecting a buried current carrying conductor includes a digital signal processor, magnetic sensors, and a power supply unit. The power supply unit is a switched mode power supply which incorporates a proportional integral differential controller feedback algorithm and which is managed by the digital signal processor. The load and source voltage are monitored by the digital signal processor and a look-up table is used to control a pulse width modulator, which drives a single ended primary induction controller. The digital signal processor processes and compares signals received from the sensors to calculate a depth of a buried conductor. The self-generated noise of the power supply unit does not interfere with the frequency bands of detection of the detector.

  • Patent number: 7342537
    Abstract: A detector 1 for detecting a current carrying conductor determines the presence of a current carrying conductor one or more of passive or active modes. In the passive modes, the detector 1 detects either very low frequency radio signals re-radiated from a conductor or electromagnetic radiation produced by a conductor as a result of mains voltage carried in the conductor, or in a nearby conductor. In the active mode, an alternating signal from a dedicated signal generator is coupled into the buried conductor. Signals are induced in a pair of antennae 3, 5 in the detector 1, and the signals are processed in each of these modes simultaneously. The outputs of each of the modes are convolved to produce an audio and/or visual alert if a current carrying conductor is detected by any of these modes.

  • Patent number: 7339379
    Abstract: A detector 1 for detecting a current carrying conductor has a pair of vertically spaced antennae 3, 5 to detect the magnetic radiation produced by a current carrying conductor as a result of one or both of the mains power supply or an electromagnetic signal which is induced in the conductor by a dedicated signal transmitter. The detector 1 continuously calculates the depth of a buried conductor and if the buried conductor is above a predetermined minimum depth then the detector 1 triggers an audio and/or visual alarm. By reducing the sensitivity of the antennae 3, 5, the lateral offset range for which the alarm sounds is reduced and the location of a buried conductor can be determined.
