  • Patent number: 10712150
    Abstract: The disclosure includes a system that includes a light source, an optical detector, a camera, and a controller. The light source is configured to illuminate a turbine blade of an engine. The optical detector is coupled to a turbine case of the engine. The camera is communicatively coupled to the optical detector and configured to detect an image of the turbine blade at a stationary condition and an image of the turbine blade at a rotational speed and temperature using the optical detector. The controller is configured to determine and output a relative displacement of at least one timing probe from the turbine blade at the rotational speed and temperature based on the image of the turbine blade at the stationary condition and the image of the turbine blade at the rotational speed and temperature. The at least one timing probe is coupled to the turbine case.

  • Publication number: 20200125558
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices for batch ingestion of data into a table of a database. A method includes determining a notification indicating a presence of a user file received from a client account to be ingested into a database. The method includes identifying data in the user file and identifying a target table of the database to receive the data in the user file. The method includes generating an ingest task indicating the data and the target table. The method includes assigning the ingest task to an execution node of an execution platform, wherein the execution platform comprises a plurality of execution nodes operating independent of a plurality of shared storage devices collectively storing database data. The method includes registering metadata concerning the target table in a metadata store after the data has been fully committed to the target table by the execution node.

  • Publication number: 20190387639
    Abstract: A wiring device includes a housing that encloses a line voltage port and/or a low voltage port for providing power to at least one removable load. The housing has an intake opening and an exhaust opening for drawing cooling air into the housing and for exhausting heated air. A fan is disposed within the housing and operates to move the air through the housing. A thermal load such as a heat sink or a transformer is positioned within the housing and receives cooling air to reduce the temperature of the load. The fan is energized when a sensed temperature in the housing exceeds a first predetermined threshold. Power to the line and/or low voltage port is reduced or shut off if the sensed temperature in the housing exceeds a predetermined value that is greater than the first predetermined threshold.

  • Patent number: 7962925
    Abstract: A schema parser can be used in data binding to create a schema object model when given an XML schema. Java classes can be generated using the schema object model, which correspond to elements and types in the schema. Mapping can be done in each direction between the schema and Java classes, which can be written to a type mapping directory. The schema object model can also contain mappings between each Java class and an XSD type. The mappings in the type mapping directory can then be used to generate XML when given a Java object tree, and can be used to create and populate a Java class when given an XML instance matching the schema object model.
