  • Publication number: 20220353412
    Abstract: An example method for managing power within an imaging device includes: determining an interface of the imaging device via which the imaging device is receiving power; based on the interface, determining a power budget associated with the interface; determining which fixed load components of the imaging device are enabled; calculating a remaining power budget by subtracting a power consumption of the enabled fixed load components from the power budget; responsive to the remaining power budget being positive, configuring non-fixed load components such that a total power consumption of the non-fixed load components does not exceed the remaining power budget; and responsive to the remaining power budget being negative, providing, via a user interface, a notification of insufficient power budget.

  • Patent number: 6861946
    Abstract: A motion-based input system including a motion sensor coupled to a device. The motion sensor provides a motion signal corresponding to the movement of the device. The system further includes a processor responsive to the motion signal and configured to distinguish between a tap command and a position command and provides, in response to a tap command, one or more actions, and in response to a position command, one or more different actions to control and operate the device.

  • Publication number: 20030014660
    Abstract: A security system including a removable circuit card having an unauthorized movement detection subsystem including a motion sensor, a processor responsive to the motion sensor for detecting whether motion sensed thereby is indicative of unauthorized movement and a response circuit activated by the processor in response to unauthorized movement. The security system also includes a power source integrated with the circuit card for powering the unauthorized movement detection subsystem in the event of a lack of available external power including removal of the circuit card.

  • Publication number: 20020171546
    Abstract: A universal, customizable computer security system including a set of security input signals each relating to a possible security event and a rules engine with a universal software interface responsive to the security input signals. The rules engine is configurable to perform one or more security actions in response to each security input signal. The rules engine further includes a user interface program to allow a user to select one or more customized security actions for a combination of one or more chosen security input signals, and a universal software output interface responsive to the selected security actions.

  • Patent number: 5380162
    Abstract: A pump having a split driveshaft for use in pumping hazardous fluids wherein only one driveshaft becomes contaminated by the fluid while the second remains isolated from the fluid. The pump has a first portion and a second portion. The first portion contains a pump motor, the first driveshaft, a support pedestal, and vapor barriers and seals. The second portion contains a second, self-lubricating driveshaft and an impeller. The first and second driveshafts are connected together by a releasable coupling. A shield and a slinger deployed below the coupling prevent fluid from the second portion from reaching the first portion. In operation, only the second assembly comes into contact with the fluid being pumped, so the risk of contamination of the first portion by the hazardous fluid is reduced. The first assembly can be removed for repairs or routine maintenance by decoupling the first and second driveshafts and disconnecting the motor from the casing.
