  • Publication number: 20200146228
    Abstract: An irrigation controller comprises actuable controls, a memory to store the watering program, and one or more displays. The actuable controls and display are incorporated into a removable face pack that is mounted to an interior door of the irrigation controller. The face pack can be easily moved from a first position on the front side of the interior door to a second position on the back side of the interior door and the face pack automatically senses its position. When the face pack is in the first position, the actuable controls and display are configured for operating information. When the face pack is in the second position, the wiring hook up area of the irrigation controller is exposed and the actuable controls and display are configured for diagnostics.

  • Publication number: 20190351134
    Abstract: A user-wearable patch pump system for delivery of insulin or other medicament can include a pump and an attachment portion that attaches the pump to a user's body. The pump can include a drive unit and a disposable cartridge containing a medicament with the drive unit configured to cause the pump to deliver the medicament in the cartridge to the user. The attachment portion can include a retention frame configured to selectively retain the pump therein and an adhesive patch configured to be attached to the user's body. The pump can be selectively attached to the retention frame and used to deliver medicament either through a cannula to an infusion site directly beneath the retention frame or through tubing to an infusion site displaced from the retention frame.
