  • Publication number: 20190383279
    Abstract: A reciprocating fluid pump includes a pump body, a first subject fluid chamber, a second subject fluid chamber, a first plunger at least partially defining a first drive fluid chamber and including a flexible material and configured to expand and compress in a reciprocating action to pump the subject fluid through the first subject fluid chamber within the pump body, and a second plunger located within the pump body and at least partially defining a second drive fluid chamber and including a flexible material and configured to expand and compress in a reciprocating action to pump the subject fluid through the second subject fluid chamber within the pump body, wherein the first plunger is not structurally coupled to the second plunger, such that the first plunger and the second plunger are independently movable during operation.

  • Patent number: 8224145
    Abstract: A method for configuring an enclosure used in a communications network is described. The method may include providing a group of pigtails. The method may further include routing the group of pigtails circumferentially around a subscriber termination field, where the group of pigtails is associated with an optical splitter module used to convey optical signals to a destination, and where the routing is performed in a manner that does not substantially obstruct access to at least one of a group of subscriber terminations that are associated with the subscriber termination field.

  • Patent number: 7200317
    Abstract: The preferred embodiments of the present invention include an optical splitter module having connectorized pigtails that are stored on the bulkhead faceplate of the module. The module includes an optical splitter output harness, for example, a ribbon cable assembly attached to the bulkhead with rugged strain relief mechanism. The ribbon harness is converted to individual pigtails with connectors which are stored on adapter receptacles on the faceplate. Adapter receptacles used may optionally be half receptacles when storage is the only desired function or may be full receptacles when access to the pigtail ferrule tip is required. Access to the ferrule tip may be required for attaching fiber optic terminators to eliminate undesirable reflections caused by unterminated connectors. The module provides an administrative location for splitter outputs prior to being connected individually into service.
