  • Publication number: 20220144455
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses and methods may provide for a verification system for an aircraft. The verification system includes a verification function subsystem to automatically verify an operational condition of one or more components of an aircraft based on airflow related signals, hydraulic related signals, and electrical signals and associated impedances and present the operational condition via a display. The airflow related signals may be obtained from a plurality of airflow fittings, the hydraulic related signals may be obtained from a plurality of hydraulic fittings, and the electrical signals and associated impedances may be obtained from a plurality of electrical connectors. At least two of the airflow fittings, at least two of the hydraulic fittings, and at least two of the electrical connectors may be positioned in different aircraft sections before additional aircraft sections are assembled.

  • Patent number: 9124446
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to implement a remote terminal unit network are disclosed. An example method involves allocating, via a processor of a first remote terminal unit, a first time slot of a first frame of a first transmission schedule to the first remote terminal unit, the first remote terminal unit to be in communication with a second remote terminal unit in a network associated with a process control system and to be in communication with a host of the process control system, the first remote terminal unit to communicate first data over the network during the first time slot, and allocating, via the processor, a second time slot of the first frame to the second remote terminal unit, the second remote terminal unit to communicate second data over the network during the second time slot.

  • Publication number: 20030081983
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for applying liquid protectorant to a targeted surface, such as a automobile tire sidewall, comprising a container for holding the liquid protectorant, a hand-held applicator, and a conduit between the container and the applicator. And one embodiment, the container is pressurized and a manually controllable valve is operable to deliver the liquid protectorant from the container to the applicator. The applicator includes a nozzle for delivering liquid protectorant. The nozzle, however, is surrounded by portions of the applicator, for example brush bristles, to prevent liquid protectorant from traveling to other than the targeted area.
