  • Publication number: 20210184375
    Abstract: An electrical connector and associated terminal are disclosed for making an electrical connection to a wire. The terminal includes a plurality of metal plates adjoining each other to form a stack that defines a passage for receiving the wire. The plates include a plurality of cutter plates disposed between a pair of outer holding plates. Each of the cutter plates has a pair of cutting edges for disrupting any insulation on the wire to permit a conductor of the wire to directly contact the cutter plate. One or more of the cutter plates may have a contact projection for making an electrical connection. The connector includes the terminal and may further include a housing. The holding plates of the terminal have outer edges with abutment features for engaging interior surfaces of the housing.

  • Publication number: 20210139057
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a hydromechanical wheelset control system for a rail vehicle that comprises a leading wheelset and a trailing wheelset that is arranged behind the leading wheelset in the direction of locomotion, with the trailing wheelset having the property of adopting a favorable position in an arc of an undercarriage frame interacting with it and of a rail pair. The wheelset control system is characterized in that a wheelset control is provided that is connected to the leading wheelset control system and to the trailing wheelset control system and that is adapted to hydraulically deflect the leading wheelset in dependence on a deflection of the trailing wheelset, preferably by the same amount as the trailing wheelset, but in the opposite direction.

  • Patent number: 10831571
    Abstract: Communication between one system and another system using one communication mechanism has failed. The one communication mechanism includes an operating system service to transfer a message between the one system and the other system. Based on determining that the communication between the one system and the other system has failed, automatically switching from the one communication mechanism to another communication mechanism to communicate the message between the one system and the other system. The other communication mechanism is different from the operating system service and uses a coupling facility list structure.

  • Publication number: 20200328978
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a process captures one or more features of an initiated application transaction within an application, and applies the one or more features to one or more application-based policies. In response to determining a policy trigger for the initiated application transaction based on applying the one or more features to the one or more application-based policies, the process may then obtain a network address associated with the application. Once the process maps the particular policy trigger from the one or more application-based policies to one or more corresponding network-based policies, then the process can instruct a network controller to apply the one or more corresponding network-based policies to the network address associated with the application, causing the network controller to configure a computer network to manage network traffic associated with the network address according to the one or more corresponding network-based policies.

  • Patent number: 10784623
    Abstract: A connector for connecting together rigid structures. The connector includes a stack of coupling contacts pivotably disposed within a housing. Each coupling contact is generally H-shaped and defines opposing first and second spaces. The first and second spaces are aligned to form first and second receiving grooves in the stack, respectively. The connector may also include one or more mounting contacts partially disposed within the housing. Each mounting contact has one or more fastening structures joined to a bar section. The fastening structures are adapted for securement to the substrate and the bar section is disposed in the second receiving groove of the stack of coupling contacts.

  • Patent number: 10700462
    Abstract: A connector housing is provided for an electronic/electrical device, which may include a printed circuit board. The connector housing includes a header connector secured to an enclosure. The header connector includes a plastic mounting block defining a plurality of slots. A plurality of contacts is at least partially disposed in the slots of the mounting block, respectively. The contacts each have a first section and a second section. The first section includes a connector end and the second section includes a plurality of retention tabs and a tail end for connection to the electronic/electrical device. The retention tabs extend in the lateral direction and engage the mounting block to help secure the contacts to the mounting block. A keeper is connected to the mounting block such that the tail ends of the contacts protrude from an outer surface of the keeper.
