  • Publication number: 20160031294
    Abstract: Shading device for a transparent surface part of a motor vehicle having a shading structure, two lateral guide arrangements fixed with respect to the vehicle and flanking a displacement travel of the shading structure on opposite sides, and a pull-out profile arranged on a front end region of the shading structure. A drive device for displacement of the pull-out profile is provided, and has a guidance strand extending on the front end region of the shading structure and protruding into associated receiving spaces in the region of the lateral guide arrangements. The pull-out profile includes a middle part and two telescopic sections guided in the middle part and provided with guide tracks extending along the pull-out profile for the guidance strand sections of the guidance strand to ensure a relative displaceability between the telescopic and guidance strand sections and to prevent spreading of the guidance strand sections.

  • Publication number: 20050235475
    Abstract: An automated method of attaching an item to a display board using elastic staples is described. A table having pivotable fixtures for containing and stabilizing items is automatically rotated to various work stations. At a selected station an item to be boarded is placed proximate a fixture pivotally mounted on the table with a pre-positioned board therebeneath. The table indexes to a conventional dual needle tack or staple gun which drives an elastic staple over the item and into the board below, securing the item to the board. One or more staples may be employed depending on the particular size and shape of the item being boarded. The table then rotates further allowing the boarded item to be removed and placed in a storage bin for collection and shipment to a retail store or other location for display purposes.

  • Publication number: 20050179987
    Abstract: An integrated optical parametric oscillator, having an optical parametric oscillation region to convert a pump source into a signal beam and an idler beam, and a fine-steering region to adjust optical path of the signal beam in order to finely select a required wavelength component of the signal beam. The optical parametric oscillator is contoured with a plurality of exterior planes with specific reflective characteristics to form a resonator of the idler beam while reflecting and diffracting the signal beam with a desired wavelength.

  • Publication number: 20050006489
    Abstract: A gas valve for controlling the flow of gas to a burner. An actuator controls the flow of gas through the valve. A stepper motor operates the actuator. A first temperature sensor senses temperature of gas entering the valve. A second temperature sensor senses temperature of gas leaving the valve. A controller controls the stepper motor in response to the sensed temperatures. This gas valve provides universal single-stage, multi-stage and modulating gas flow control for appliances and furnaces.

  • Patent number: 6700902
    Abstract: A system and method for improving the delivery of data between a first signal transmitter/receiver device and a second signal transmitter/receiver device. Data is dynamically sized into at least one data packet having a data packet size that is no greater than an operational maximum data packet size capable of being transferred between the first wireless signal transmitter/receiver device and the second wireless signal transmitter/receiver device. At least one data packet is transferred from the first signal transmitter/receiver device to the second signal transmitter/receiver device until all data has been delivered.

  • Patent number: 6419564
    Abstract: Grinding wheels are fabricated with outwardly extending circular peripheral rims having a continuous rim surface to which separate abrasive pieces, preferably of a superabrasive such as CBN, are secured by suitable adhesive. The superabrasive pieces are preferably circular and of a diameter corresponding to the width of the rim and are secured to the rim surface so as to either be adjacent and touch one another or to be spaced one from the other around the circle of the rim surface so that a predetermined amount but not all of the rim surface is covered with abrasive pieces. That rim surface coverage optimize grinding efficiency while providing space for fluid flow for purposes of cooling and carrying away particles from the grinding process.

  • Patent number: 5757133
    Abstract: An arc lamp having a sealed lamp tube with electrodes to either side of a septum. The septum extends through the length of the arc chamber. An emissions chamber extends from the end of the arc chamber without the septum. A window at the end of the emissions chamber is displaced from the end of the septum and from the arc chamber itself by a sufficient distance so that magnesium diffusing from the electrodes does not darken the surface. The magnesium electrodes are slugs encased within high temperature cells open at one end.

  • Patent number: 5736744
    Abstract: A wavelength shifting filter having two sheets of material adjacent and parallel with a spacer therebetween about the periphery of the sheets. The sheets are held in a frame. A phosphor coating is located on the inner side of one of the sheets. A transilluminator is associated with the filter and provides radiation in the UV wavelength. One sheet of the filter transmits the UV wavelength. The other sheet transmits at least a portion of the wavelength that the phosphor coating generates when subjected to the UV radiation of the transilluminator. The visual effect of white light is enhanced by the use of white glass.

  • Patent number: 5670786
    Abstract: A transilluminator having two sets of tubes selectively providing light in the ultraviolet and visible ranges. The sets of tubes are arranged in two rows on opposite sides of a reflector in a housing having windows with lenses in opposite sides. The two sets of tubes have separate circuits sharing a common ON/OFF switch and a mercury switch mounted to the housing. With the device on, the orientation of the housing determines which of the two sets of tubes is on and which is off. Two sets of mounts to stably retain the housing on a planar surface are arranged on the opposite sides so that the housing may be positioned and used in two orientations. In either orientation, the upwardly facing lamps are energized while the downwardly facing lamps are turned off.
