  • Publication number: 20170228306
    Abstract: A method for defining an automated test is configured to test a system under test. The system under test includes a plurality of operational states, at least one operational state having executable actions associated therewith operable to execute predetermined operations and/or transition the system under test between operational states. The method includes a) defining an executable model of the system under test including a plurality of model states; and b) defining one or more selectable model actions, each model action representative of one or more executable actions on the system under test and configured such that one or more preconditions are assignable thereto. Each model action is configured to be available to be selected unless any preconditions assigned to the respective model action are not satisfied. The model is configured such that a test program is operable to select a sequence of available model actions to define an automated test.

  • Publication number: 20170181645
    Abstract: Systems and methods for remote and host monitoring communication are disclosed. In some implementations, monitoring systems can comprise a host monitoring device associated with a Host communicatively coupled to one or more remote monitoring devices associated with Remote Monitors. The host monitoring device can send communications based at least in part on analyte measurements of a Host sensor and/or other contextual data giving such measurements context. Different remote monitoring devices can receive different communications based at least in part on the role of the respective Remote Monitors relative to the Host. These roles can be reflected in classifications of Remote Monitors.

  • Patent number: 9664436
    Abstract: A combination microwave and refrigerator system is provided. The microwave oven is connected to a source of power and has a control circuit for controlling the operation of the microwave oven. A first power supply outlet is provided on the microwave oven. A refrigerator is connected to the source of power by connection to the first power supply outlet. The control circuit is configured to disable the cooking operation of the refrigerator, when the microwave oven demands cooking power, and enable the cooling operation of the refrigerator when the microwave oven is not drawing cooking power. A safety sensor is provided in the microwave oven, and is configured to cause cooking power to the microwave oven to be turned off upon the safety sensor sensing a dangerous condition.

  • Publication number: 20170077643
    Abstract: An electrical connector includes a heat dissipation module with a first end and a second end opposed to the first end and two receptacle connectors located at the second end. The first and second ends define a transceiver-mating direction such that, when a transceiver is inserted into the first end of the heat dissipation module in the transceiver-mating direction, the transceiver mates with one of the two receptacle connectors, and in the heat dissipation module, air flows parallel to the transceiver-mating direction between the first and second ends and flows between the two receptacle connectors.
