  • Publication number: 20230019469
    Abstract: Systems and methods for transforming an electronic portfolio. A system includes an electronic crossing platform that receives data defining trade orders of the electronic portfolio during an initial time period; compares portions of the data to determine an imbalance of the trade orders remaining after the initial time period and receives, during a final time period, a final trade order from a fund agent device to offset the remaining imbalance. The platform receives, after the final time period, a benchmark value of the electronic portfolio from a fund device; compares the final trade order with the remaining imbalance to determine an adjustment value; converts the benchmark value to a final value by applying the adjustment value to the benchmark value; and transforms the electronic portfolio into the transformed portfolio by creating paired buy and sell orders among the trade orders received during the initial time period at the final value.

  • Patent number: 11557443
    Abstract: A coupler between an activator mounted on an enclosure and an electronic protection device located within the enclosure facilitates alignment between the coupler and the electronic protection device during installation and requires no tool for installation. The coupler is positioned over an opening in the electronic protection device and oriented such that a first coupling portion is configured to engage a complementary coupling portion on the electronic protection device. The coupler may be manually mounted, engaging the complementary coupling portions on the door handle coupler and the electronic protection device without requiring a tool for installation. The coupler includes an upper sleeve configured to receive an axle, connected to the activator, that rotates independently of a lower sleeve which is mounted to the electronic protection device, facilitating orientation of the activator on the outside of the enclosure. The coupler provides for local lock-out of the electronic protection device.

  • Publication number: 20230000370
    Abstract: The blood pressure measuring device (1) is designed as a photoplethysmographic measuring system which functions according to the “vascular unloading technique”. Metrological components and a pressure generating and pressure control system are accommodated in the base part (3). The fitted cuff part (2) has an ergonomic palm support (4), two finger supports (6) divided from one another by a web (5), and also a receiving part (7) which comprises two receiving tubes (9) for fingers. The cuff part (2) projects beyond the base part (3), both towards the front and also towards the rear, and covers the base part (3) almost completely, i.e. by more than 90%. The lateral attachment of the cable (8) facing in the direction of the forearm has the advantage that the cable can be guided along the patient's arm, the wrist does not rub against the cable (8), and in particular the carpal tunnel is also protected.

  • Patent number: 11498475
    Abstract: A motor vehicle includes a projection device to project a light distribution for driver information in the longitudinal direction of the motor vehicle onto the ground in front of the motor vehicle. The light function of the projected light distribution is different from a low beam and a high beam light. During operation of the projection device within a predefined interval of the vehicle speed in the forward direction of the motor vehicle, an increase in the extent of the light distribution in the longitudinal direction of the motor vehicle occurs as the vehicle speed increases. The extent of the light distribution at each vehicle speed is thereby greater than or equal to the extent at lower vehicle speeds.
