  • Publication number: 20210325272
    Abstract: A reconfigurable pressure transducer assembly having an input tube filter assembly is provided. The resonant frequency and dampening characteristics associate with the pressure transducer assembly may be configured by the input tube filter assembly. The input tube filter assembly includes one or more inserts disposed in an input tube channel, the one or more inserts including one or more bores of selectable dimensions and extending therethrough from a first end to a second end. The one or more inserts define an effective input tube bore, and the input tube filter assembly is tunable by selection of the selectable dimensions of the one or more inserts.

  • Patent number: 11137563
    Abstract: A data center includes various sets of infrastructure modules which each provide a particular type of infrastructure support to support computing operations in the data center. Separate sets of infrastructure modules can be installed incrementally based on incrementally changing support capacity for the corresponding type of infrastructure support in the data center. Such incrementally changing support capacity can be based upon support requirements of electrical loads, including rack computer systems, which are inbound to the data center. Where support capacity for a particular type of infrastructure support drops below a threshold, a quantity of additional infrastructure modules which provide the particular type of infrastructure support can be selected and installed to increase the support capacity.

  • Patent number: 11102094
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to systems and methods of configuring a resource for network traffic analysis. An agent executed by a computing device receives an indication to record a browsing session. The agent records network activity data of the browsing session. The agent generates a data file with the recording. The agent transmits the data file and a request to generate a report to an analytics server. The analytics server receives the request and extracts the network activity data from the data file. The analytics server applies an event processing protocol to the network activity data. The analytics server generates a report and transmits the report to the client device for display.

  • Publication number: 20200393316
    Abstract: A reconfigurable pressure transducer assembly having an input tube filter assembly is provided. Multiple small inlet apertures of the transducer housing or input tube filter assembly may be utilized to filter particulate matter from the measurement media/fluid. The resonant frequency and dampening characteristics of the pressure transducer assembly may be configured by the input tube filter assembly such that temporary clogging of a portion of the small inlet apertures does not appreciably affect the resonant frequency and dampening characteristics. The input tube filter assembly includes one or more inserts disposed in an input tube channel, the one or more inserts including one or more apertures of selectable dimensions and extending therethrough from a first end to a second end. The one or more inserts define at least a filter aperture, and the input tube filter assembly is tunable by selection of the selectable dimensions of the one or more inserts.

  • Patent number: 10826321
    Abstract: A power busway tap box with integrated uninterruptable power supply (UPS) functionality is enabled. A busway may be utilized to distribute electrical power throughout a data center. A busway tap box may incorporate one or more components providing UPS functionality. When the busway is distributing alternating current (AC) power, the tap box may incorporate a rectifier, an electrical energy storage device (e.g., a lithium-ion battery), and an inverter. The tap box may keep a substantially conventional form factor, or an extended form factor to accommodate larger electrical energy storage device sizes. The busways may run overhead in a data center and the tap boxes may physically couple with the overhead busways and be disposed beneath them. By distributing the UPS functionality throughout the data center, the impact of UPS failures may be lowered and/or environmental maintenance costs may be reduced.
