  • Patent number: 11754369
    Abstract: A weapon light including a head lamp portion, a tubular body portion and an end cap that is releasably coupled to the tubular body. A spacing is defined within the tubular body portion between a battery spring and an end portion. A first member of the end cap includes at least one slot for sliding receipt of at least one guide member of an insert. The tubular body is configured to threadably receive a spacer member that defines a central aperture such that the battery spring extends from the insert and passes through the central aperture into the tubular body portion to make contact with the power source. The spacer member is selectively positioned within the tubular body portion so that the insert may be urged along slot to position the battery spring inside the tubular body to adjust the spacing to fit the power source size.

  • Publication number: 20210395109
    Abstract: A distillation device may comprise a source fluid input and an evaporator in fluid communication therewith. The device may further comprise a compressor having an impeller coupled to a motor, the compressor having a low pressure inlet for vapor from the evaporator and a high pressure outlet for compressed vapor. The device may further comprise at least one temperature sensor configured to monitor temperature of vapor in the inlet and a condenser in heat transfer relationship with exterior surfaces of the evaporator and in fluid communication with the compressor outlet. The device may further comprise a controller configured to govern rotation speed of the impeller with an impeller motor command based on a calibrated motor speed for the distillation device. The controller may be configured to determine an adjusted motor speed for a next use of the device and overwrite the calibrated motor speed with the adjusted motor speed.

  • Patent number: 10204349
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a system and method for customer segment analysis. The system receives customer transaction data for the generation of segments, including point of sales data and customer identification information. Errors in the data may be resolved. Then, individual customers may be segmented by statistically relevant groups. The segmentation of consumers may be accomplished by comparing data of known customers to known segments. Unknown customers, new customers and point of sales data which is missing customer data may also be segmented via statistical similarity to known segments. Using the customer segments, segment wide point of sale data may be generated. This data may then be aggregated by consumer groups. Consumer groups may include by household or other communal purchasing entity. The aggregated segment data may be validated and transformed for outputting to the optimization system. The price optimization system may the use the segment data for generation of preferred prices.

  • Patent number: 10184756
    Abstract: A rail mounted weapon light for being interfaced with firearm platforms. The weapon light defines an outer housing that includes a main body and an integral outer housing extension that defines an interface profile shaped and sized to slidably engage the track of the firearm platform. The outer housing is configured such that there is an offset between the outer housing extension and the main body. A pressure switch is disposed on the outer housing extension. The pressure switch having a momentary on function and a constant on function. The main body including a head portion that defines an inner chamber for receiving the electronics of the weapon light. The electronics of the weapon light being in electronic communication with the pressure switch.

  • Patent number: 9773250
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a system and method for analyzing product roles. The system receives a listing of products for classification into roles. The system receives volume data for each item, as well as demand coefficient. Elasticity of the products may be determined from the demand coefficients. Product volumes and elasticities may then be compared against one another by graphing the product by its volume versus elasticity. From this comparison the products may be classified into one or more roles. These roles include image items, niche products, assortment completers, and profit drivers. The assortment completer role is populated with products which have high relative elasticity and low relative volume. Niche product role is populated with products which have low relative elasticity and low relative volume. The image item role is populated with products which have high relative elasticity and high relative volume.

  • Publication number: 20110131079
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a system and method for the system and method for modeling demand by consumer segments. In some embodiments a segment data organizer may receive transaction data. Transaction data may include transaction logs (T logs) from point of sales records from a retailer. These transaction logs, for the most part, include identification information for each transaction. The segment data organizer may also receive customer identification data which includes groupings of customers by consumer segments. The identification information within the transaction logs may be cross referenced by the customer identification data in order to generate groupings of transactions belonging to consumers in each segment. The organizer may then also aggregate the transaction logs by location, time series and product. The aggregated data may be supplied to an econometric engine capable of generating elasticity coefficients for each set of aggregate data.
