  • Publication number: 20220226046
    Abstract: Provided herein are systems and methods for performing localization within a patient. A method of localization within a body comprises providing at least one processor coupled to at least one data storage device, establishing and calibrating a localization coordinate system within a body by executing a first localization mode by the at least one processor, recalibrating the localization coordinate system by executing a second localization mode by the at least one processor, and localizing a device within the localization coordinate system using the first localization mode and the second localization mode, by the at least one processor. The first localization mode can be an impedance-based localization mode and the second localization mode can be magnetic-based localization mode, or vice versa.

    Abstract: A composite cooling film (100) comprises an ultraviolet-reflective multilayer optical film (120) and a reflective microporous layer (110) secured thereto. The ultraviolet-reflective multilayer optical film (120) hat is at least 50 percent reflective of ultraviolet radiation over a majority of the wavelength range of at least 340 but less than 400 nanometers. The reflective microporous layer (110) has a continuous phase comprising a nonfluorinated organic polymer and is diffusely reflective of solar radiation over a majority the wavelength range of 400 to 2500 nanometers, inclusive. The composite cooling film (100) has an average absorbance over the wavelength range 8-13 microns of at least 0.85. An article (1200) comprising the composite cooling film (100) adhered to a substrate (1210) is also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20220221235
    Abstract: A composite cooling film (100) comprises an antisoiling layer (160) secured to a first major surface of a reflective microporous layer (110). The reflective microporous layer (110) comprises a first fluoropolymer and is diffusely reflective of electromagnetic radiation over a majority of wavelengths in the range of 400 to 2500 nanometers. The antisoiling layer (160) has an outwardly facing antisoiling surface (162) opposite the micro-voided polymer film. An article (1100) comprising the composite cooling film (1112) secured to a substrate (1110) is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11253805
    Abstract: A multimodal airborne pathogen control apparatus and system configured to direct and decontaminate a volume of indoor air of occupied spaces and reduce the risk of spreading airborne contagions. Certain aspects of the multimodal airborne pathogen control apparatus and system may include one or more infection control modalities including, but not limited to, dielectric Cold Plasma generation, non-ozone producing UV-C light, True HEPA filtration comprising a monoterpene phenol-impregnated filter material, and configurable intake/output ducting to direct airflow to/from a desired area and regulate interior atmospheric pressure. Embodiments of the present disclosure include a door-mounted control unit comprising a door panel having one or more directional intake vents at a floor-level of the door panel, an interior chamber housing a blower fan and one or more germicidal irradiation/inactivation means, and one or more directional output vents at a head level of the door panel.

  • Patent number: 9865372
    Abstract: An electrical conductor is provided that includes at least one strip of conductive material defining a length and having a first end with a first cutout and a second end having a second cutout. The cutouts engage electrical terminals. The at least two deflections are orthogonal to the length of the strip. The deflections are located between the first cutout and the second cutout and are in plane or out of plane of the cutouts. The electrical conductor is particularly well suited for interconnection of batteries associated with a vehicle power system.

  • Patent number: 9205691
    Abstract: A three-dimensional object printer compensates for variations in ejected material drop volumes by adjusting firing signal parameters. The printer includes an optical sensor that generates height measurement data of columns of material in a test pattern. Differences between the height of columns of material in the test pattern formed by the ejectors in the printhead and the expected height of the columns are compared to a predetermined range to detect drop variations that are out of tolerance. The modification of the firing signal parameter adjust the operation of the ejectors to bring the volume of the drops ejected by the ejector within tolerance range to reduce the ink drop velocities of the ejected drops within a predetermined range.

  • Patent number: 6089874
    Abstract: An electrical connector is disclosed that allows for relative twisting movement between cables or cords coupled thereto by absorbing any such twisting movement in shunts disposed internal to the connector. The shunts as well provide the communication between oppositely disposed prongs that extend from the connector housing in order to provide electrical continuity. In one form, the shunts coil around themselves internal to the connector housing as the shunts connect one side's prong to the other.

  • Patent number: 4784422
    Abstract: A gripper and wrist joint assembly for a robotic arm. The gripper comprises a pair of identical jams connected by a pivot and including V-sections for holding large objects and end-mounted pivotal tips for holding small and flat sided objects. The jaws are opened and closed by rotation of a screw-threaded rod having screw threaded connections with the jaws, the axis of the rod being fixed and the pivot pins being guided with linear displacement during adjustment of jaws so that they are maintained central within the gripper housing. The wrist includes a pair of spiroid level gears driven by respective spiroid pinions and each meshing with an output bevel gear carried on a shaft equipped with an adjustment nut for engaging the bevel gears into firm engagement and enabling backlash to be eliminated.
