  • Patent number: 10392754
    Abstract: A low maintenance rail seat has recess in the concrete tie and an abrasion plate that covers the floor of the recess and its sides parallel to the rail base. The abrasion plate includes ribs which seat in additional recesses in the tie to retard longitudinal movement. The anti-abrasion assembly preferably has four flanges which wrap around the top of concrete tie to prevent dust particles from entering and abrading the concrete rail seat. These flanges also wrap around the support shoulder for additional resistance to longitudinal movement. The components are designed to provide 8.5? of lateral support along the side of the rail base while the traditional e clip fastener provides only 3? of lateral support. The interlock feature between the anti-abrasion assembly and the concrete tie also minimizes relative movement between abrasion plate and concrete tie, which results in less concrete surface abrasion.

  • Publication number: 20190012875
    Abstract: A casino management system is described herein. The system includes an API server computer coupled to a plurality of business service systems and a plurality of gaming machines. The API server computer receives an HTTP request from a gaming machine including a URL including a resource request including a business service identifier and a resource object. The API server computer identifies a business service system associated with the business service identifier and transmits an API call to the identified business service system. The API server computer receives resource object data from the identified business service system in response to the transmitted API call and generates and transmits a return response including the received resource object data to the gaming machine that causes the gaming machine to generate HTML code to a webpage including the resource object data.

  • Publication number: 20180051422
    Abstract: A flat bar elastic rail clip in which the flat bar is turned back on itself so that one portion is longer than the other. The flat bar incorporates an opening in both portions to accommodate a rail spike that is held in the rail tie. This type of spike is usually used in combination with a concrete tie and a guide plate that seats on the rail seat of the tie. The combination of a shaped flat bar clip which is capable of providing both rail clamping and rollover protection configurations in combination with a guide plate and spike.

  • Publication number: 20180038052
    Abstract: A tool for removing rail clips of the kind which are applied transversely to the rail, which includes a pair of levers connected at a pivot point and being adapted to move toward or away from each other. Each lever has at its lower end, a rail clip engagement face which engage opposed sides of a rail clip seating transversely on the rail base. Each clip engagement face includes a clamp plate adapted to abut one side of the toes of the rail clip, an engagement pin adapted to engage one side of the rear portion of said rail clip, and a reaction pivot rear edge adapted to pivot about a point behind said rail clip. This arrangement allows the tool to be opened by moving the levers away from each other, placing the engagement faces on either side of the clip and then bringing the levers together so that the clamp plates compress the toes of the clip together so that the clip can be removed rearwardly from the rail clip support shoulder.

  • Patent number: 9774940
    Abstract: A power configurable headset system may include a communication device that can be removably secured with either a first headband having an auxiliary power supply or a second headband without a power supply. The first headband may include an arcuate band having a device support at its first end, and a power booster housing at its second end for supporting a power booster that is electrically connected to the device. The power booster may be used to supplement an integrated power supply of the communication device. In the second headband the power booster housing is replaced by a pad at the second end of the arcuate band for comfortably engaging the other side of a user's head.

  • Publication number: 20170271738
    Abstract: A board to board contactless interconnect system includes a first circuit board for launching at st one microwave signal into a cavity of a first waveguide secured thereto. A second waveguide, secured to a second circuit board, is coupleable to the first waveguide to receive the at least one microwave signal in a cavity of the second waveguide and conduct the at least one microwave signal onto a microwave receiver aligned with the cavity on the second circuit board. The waveguides may be separable and may include additional waveguides. Conductive gaskets with apertures for microwave signals to pass through are positioned between the waveguides and between each circuit board and a waveguide to prevent leakage of microwave energy therebetween. Some embodiments may pass signals through a sealed boundary and maintain integrity of the seal. Such embodiments may have a third waveguide interposed between the first and second waveguides.

  • Patent number: 9558836
    Abstract: A compact and versatile high speed sense amplifier suitable for use in non-volatile memory circuits is presented. The sense amp circuit is connected to first and second supply levels, a first level used for setting a program inhibit level on bit lines and a second level used for pre-charging bit lines for sensing operation. Outside of a data latch, the sense amp can employ only NMOS transistors. The arrangement of the circuit also allows for the discharging the bit line at the same time as transfers the sensing result out to other latches.
