  • Publication number: 20200154972
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein relate to hose accessories. The hose accessory includes a handle, a shaft slidably received in the handle, and a flexible conduit located within handle and shaft. The flexible conduit may be arranged to carry fluids between a first end of the hose accessory and a second end of the hose accessory. A lock is provided to secure the shaft in a fixed position relative to the handle. The lock may include a locking pin biased towards a locked position. The shaft may include first and second channels. The first channel receives at least a portion of the locking pin when the locking pin is in a locked position.

  • Patent number: 8059424
    Abstract: An electronic board including an area forming a BGA type electronic component backing, and an electric heating resistor which supplies an amount of heat for soldering the component onto the plate is disclosed. The board includes a plurality of conductive layers alternating with electrically insulating layers, the resistor forming one of the conductive layers immediately underlying the surface layer. The board may also include a thermal drain. A facility for implementing the method is also disclosed. It allows for an electronic board to be repaired through replacing defective members without risking to unsolder or to damage adjacent members.

  • Patent number: 5566040
    Abstract: A protection arrangement for an electronic device sensitive to electromagic radiation comprises a single printed circuit board which is disposed within a metal casing so that it passes perpendicularly through a metal partition separating an upstream zone in which electromagnetic fields prevail from a screened downstream zone, the board thus having a first part situated in the upstream zone and a second part, which is intended to carry the electronic device, situated in the downstream zone. Electrical signals are conveyed from the upstream zone to the downstream zone by means of conductive lines printed on at least one inner layer of the printed circuit board, and the board is provided with means for filtering the electrical signals comprising surface-mounted components in the vicinity of the metal partition and capacitive elements integrated in the printed circuit board where it passes through the partition.
