  • Patent number: 10828500
    Abstract: A variety of arrangements and methods relating to a defibrillator and a multiphasic pulse generator are described. In one aspect of the invention, a defibrillator includes two paddles that each include a defibrillator electrode covered in a protective housing. The two paddles are sealed together using a releasable seal to form a paddle module such that the housings of the paddles form the exterior of the paddle module. The multi-phasioc pulse generator includes a first subsystem, a second subsystem, and a switching component is electrically coupled with the paddles. The first subsystem and the second subsystem are arranged to generate a first phase of a pulse and a second phase of the pulse, the first phase of the pulse having a positive phase or a negative phase, and the second phase of the pulse having a phase in opposite polarity to the first phase of the pulse.

  • Patent number: 4719861
    Abstract: Single-sided linear induction motors (SLIMs) suspended in proximity to the rail of a locomotive are energized to increase the effective adhesion between the locomotive drive wheels and the rail in response to the detection of an operating condition in which the tractive effort of the locomotive traction motors is limited by less than optimal adhesion. The SLIMs are energized in relation to the reserve power capability of the power source and the limit of tractive effort improvement. One method further employs sand dispensing units activated if the suboptimal operating condition is not alleviated by activation of the SLIMs. Another method uses the sand dispensing units first, and only activates the SLIMs if the suboptimal operating condition is not alleviated by activation of the sand dispensing mechanism.

  • Patent number: 4105371
    Abstract: A refrigerant compressor constructed for the addition of one or more pumping cylinders for the change of capacity. Improved mechanical efficiency is attained by means of a motor-driven eccentric cam imparting linear motion through one or more of the compressor pistons to the compression stroke and wherein the work to reciprocate each piston is assisted by dual out-of-phase compression springs. The cam is configured for producing a predetermined dwell-period when each piston reaches its bottom-dead-center position wherein a maximum gas charge will be inducted into the cylinder bore by the ram velocity effect of the inward moving gas stream. In a like manner the cam design provides piston dwell time at its top-dead-center position wherein an increased gas charge will be expelled per cycle resulting in increased volumetric efficiency.
