  • Patent number: 10344858
    Abstract: A park valve includes a slidable end-cap. Under normal circumstances, the end-cap is held in a nominal position by a spring, such as a Belleville spring. The park valve performs a multi-plexing function in which an out-of-park circuit is connected to line pressure when the valve is in an out-of-park position and is vented when the valve is in a park position. In an intermediate position, a hydraulic lock condition may potentially occur. When engaging park, the hydraulic lock condition is prevented by the slidable end-cap.

  • Patent number: 10149357
    Abstract: Employed within an LED driver operating from the AC power line, the invention controls both input current and output power. With this regulation circuit, input current appears purely resistive, precisely tracking the input voltage waveshape. At the same time, it provides good line regulation and inherent phase dimmer compatibility, requiring no special circuitry to detect and handle a dimmer.
