  • Publication number: 20190361713
    Abstract: A self-diagnostic and automated monitoring and maintenance system for use with parking meter systems. The maintenance system improves functionality, and detects and mitigates unexpected behavior and errors with parking meters. In order for a parking meter to seamlessly function during inoperable situations with respect to municipality regulations, automated self-diagnosis coupled with an enforcement policy configuration can be utilized to mitigate unexpected behaviors.

  • Publication number: 20190216493
    Abstract: An apparatus comprises a body assembly, a shaft, an acoustic waveguide, an articulation section, an end effector, and an articulation drive assembly. The shaft extends distally from the body assembly and defines a longitudinal axis. The acoustic waveguide comprises a flexible portion. The articulation section is coupled with the shaft. A portion of the articulation section encompasses the flexible portion of the waveguide. The articulation section comprises a plurality of body portions aligned along the longitudinal axis and a flexible locking member. The flexible locking member is operable to secure the body portions in relation to each other and in relation to the shaft. The end effector comprises an ultrasonic blade in acoustic communication with the waveguide. The articulation drive assembly is operable to drive articulation of the articulation section to thereby deflect the end effector from the longitudinal axis.

  • Patent number: 10310750
    Abstract: A storage area network comprises: one or more replicating source and target storage volumes accessible by one or more hosts; a volume replication status checker for determining an active replication relationship between a source storage volume and a target storage volume; and a volume visibility engine for setting the target storage volume to be hidden from a host if the target storage volume is visible to the host and has a determined active relationship. The volume replication status checker is further for determining an inactive replication relationship between a source storage volume and a target storage volume; and the volume visibility engine is further for setting the target storage volume to be visible to a host if the target storage volume is hidden from the host and has a determined inactive replication relationship.

  • Patent number: 8720498
    Abstract: A fill head for depositing hazardous waste materials into a container movable between a filling position seated on the container, and a container exchange position withdrawn from the container; a control arm carried by the fill head directing movement of the fill head between the filling and exchange positions; a drip tray movably carried on a support platform adjacent the fill head for extending underneath the fill head to retain drippings of the hazardous waste material from the fill head when in the exchange position; and, a lifting arm carried by the drip tray engaging the control arm, wherein the lifting arm biases the control arm to raise the fill head from the filling position to the exchange position when the drip tray is extended underneath the fill head so that as the fill head is withdrawn from the container any dripping hazardous waste is captured by the drip tray.

  • Patent number: 7631984
    Abstract: A flashlight includes a flashlight head assembly that may be used with either one or two batteries. For use with one battery, a body receives a battery therein and the flashlight head assembly is secured to the body. For use with two batteries, an extension unit is secured to the body and the flashlight head assembly is secured to the extension unit. A switch assembly disposed in the body and electrically connected with the flashlight head assembly controls the delivery of power to the flashlight head assembly.

  • Patent number: 7559439
    Abstract: A tool for self-defense and safety includes a body defining a canister compartment and a flashlight compartment. A flashlight head is securable to the body at a first end. A switch assembly is housed by the body and regulates power delivery to the flashlight head from a battery disposed in the flashlight compartment. A nozzle is securable to the body at a second end. Actuation of a trigger assembly ejects spray through the nozzle from a spray canister disposed in the canister compartment. The trigger assembly is mounted on the body proximate to the switch assembly such that either the trigger assembly or the switch assembly may be actuated without changing grip on the body. In addition, a user may strike with the tool without changing grip on the body.

  • Patent number: 7309147
    Abstract: A flashlight includes a body, a flashlight head assembly, and a switch assembly. The body includes a first end securable to the flashlight head assembly, a second end, and a substantially cylindrical portion between the first end and the second end. The switch assembly, which is located at the substantially cylindrical portion of the body adjacent the second end, electrically connects with the flashlight head assembly to regulate the delivery of power thereto. The flashlight head assembly includes a first end and a second end securable to the body, a lens disposed in the flashlight head at the first end, a reflector disposed in the flashlight head adjacent the lens, a heat sink disposed in the flashlight head adjacent the reflector, and an LED assembly disposed within the heat sink such that the heat sink substantially completely surrounds the LED assembly.

  • Patent number: 7000807
    Abstract: A baton suitable for use in self-defense includes a body adapted to receive a canister of spray therein, a nozzle securable to the body and adapted to receive spray therethrough, and a trigger mounted on the body. The trigger mounts on the body in a location that permits grasping of the body underhanded with the thumb positioned over the trigger to permit movement of the trigger from an unfired position to a fired position that facilitates ejection of spray from the canister through the nozzle. The trigger includes an actuator and a lock coupled therewith. One motion performed with the thumb releases the lock and moves the actuator from the unfired position of the trigger to the fired position of the trigger.
