  • Patent number: 9460426
    Abstract: Validation of the identity of the user is performed with the use of a card associated with intelligence that identifies the user. Validation of the document involves one or more of: validating the presence of a signature; validating the amount of the monetary transaction document including a manual entry of the amount by the user; validating CAR against the LAR; and validating the banking system parameters and rules for the customer and/or the transaction. To assist in the automatic analysis of data on monetary transactional documents or on remittance documents, the user is prompted to provide a bounding box about the data. An image touch screen may be touched by the user to locate the bounding box and the user may magnify the data to fill the boundary box to exclude other data from analysis. After document and person validation, the system will dispense money or transfer monies to a savings account, a checking account, a smart card, or the like. The system will also write money orders or wire transfer money.

  • Patent number: 8979096
    Abstract: A training device for inline roller skates includes a training wheel bracket, a training wheel mounted upon the bracket, and means for adjustably mounting the device upon the inline skate. The training wheel is adapted to engage upon the travel surface to compensate for any unbalance of the trainee and to enable the trainee to travel in a desired direction. The training wheel is adapted to provide a braking action to the roller wheels if the trainee loses balance or the trainee's ankle collapses. The training device serves the dual purpose of providing a means of balancing the skater as well as slowing and braking the forward movement of the skater to control and limit the speed of the skater.

  • Publication number: 20150058217
    Abstract: Validation of the identity of the user is performed with the use of a card associated with intelligence that identifies the user. Validation of the document involves one or more of: validating the presence of a signature; validating the amount of the monetary transaction document including a manual entry of the amount by the user; validating CAR against the LAR; and validating the banking system parameters and rules for the customer and/or the transaction. To assist in the automatic analysis of data on monetary transactional documents or on remittance documents, the user is prompted to provide a bounding box about the data. An image touch screen may be touched by the user to locate the bounding box and the user may magnify the data to fill the boundary box to exclude other data from analysis. After document and person validation, the system will dispense money or transfer monies to a savings account, a checking account, a smart card, or the like. The system will also write money orders or wire transfer money.

  • Publication number: 20130290183
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided for conducting transactions through a financial network using a ticket at an unattended automated machine. For security purposes a signature detector can be utilized to detect the signature and the user uses a ticket or a card to operate the machine. A card writer can write an amount on the ticket or the card related to the amount of the transaction being done and a calculator can calculate the amount to be written on the ticket or the card and can subtract a user's service charge. A cash acceptor in the machine can accept cash and a cash dispenser can dispense cash.

  • Patent number: 8459660
    Abstract: A transport that is manually powered for transporting an injured or disabled person from one location to another. The chair is particularly useful for transporting an injured or disabled person (who is of a heavy weight) up or down a flight of stairs. The chair lift is manually driven by reciprocating hand levers operated by an attendant. A ratchet and pawl mechanism in combination with a brake system, which is continuously set/locked, allows movement of the chair only when the chair is being propelled up a flight of stairs and when an attendant purposefully actuates a hand lever to release the brakes and allow movement of the transporter.

  • Publication number: 20130118715
    Abstract: A heat transfer system is disclosed incorporating a passive pump utilizing bubble technology to cycle a coolant through associated channels. The system includes a housing and channels containing a slurry consisting of liquid having a low boiling point and microspheres formed of metallic foam introduced into said liquid. The microspheres are caused to flow onto a heat source and penetrate the coolant boundary layer and thereby provide an efficient and fast transfer of heat from the source onto the microspheres and the coolant. The microspheres further provide and efficient and fast transfer of heat through the slurry to a heat dissipating component.

  • Publication number: 20130048254
    Abstract: A heat transfer bridge for absorbing heat from electronic circuits and electrical distribution transformers to thereby cool said components is disclosed. The heat transfer bridge includes a passive pump for pumping a fluid having a low boiling point that readily creates bubbles when heated to its boiling point. The bubbles are directed via selected flow paths to effectively push or drive the fluid from adjacent a heat source such as an electronic circuit or transformer to heat dissipating components such as cooling fins. In one embodiment, the fluid in the inventive heat transfer bridge comprises a fluid comprising metallic slurry that provides many times the heat dissipation rate as compared to a clear fluid.

  • Patent number: 8382993
    Abstract: A removable drain filter apparatus (20) with an housing (22) connectable with upstream and downstream drain pipes (40, 46) has a filtering chamber wider than the drain pipes and divided into an upstream portion (78) and a downstream portion (82) by a generally planer filter element (50). A hatch cover (32) carries a downwardly extending central core (76) with an O-ring seal (84), a filter securement member (86) for pressing the filter element (50) against an underlying support ledge (29) and a drain hole plug (88). The location of the O-ring (84) relative to the filter element (50) and the plug (88) being tapered enables the filter housing (22) to be drained of any water during removal of the hatch cover and before the watertight seal is broken to eliminate leakage of drain water out of the housing (22) when the hatch (31) is completely opened. The filter (50) bends out of the way of a plumber's auger (96).

  • Publication number: 20120247737
    Abstract: A cooling chamber for computers and for electronic components includes a conductive chamber containing a low boiling point fluid. The components are mounted in the chamber to be bathed by the fluid. The heat energy developed by the components causes the fluid to reach a temperature above the boiling point thus forming bubbles. Bubble guide tubes guide the bubbles upwardly, and fluid confined in the tubes between the bubbles is moved (pushed) upwardly. The cumulative action of the bubbles will cause circulation of the fluid in the chamber thus circulating fluid flow around the electronic components and flow around the chamber. Cooling fins mounted on the exterior of the chamber dissipate the heat generated by the components.

  • Publication number: 20120218774
    Abstract: The LED bulb includes a body in the shape of a standard domestic light bulb and has a base which can be screwed into a standard AC receptacle. The bulb comprises a plurality of cooling fins made of aluminum and cast to form the outer surface of the light bulb. A central opening extends axially through the bulb with the interior edges of the cooling fins forming the interior periphery of the opening. The bulb thus provides two cooling air flow paths. A heat sink for supporting a circuit board carrying the LEDs is cast together with the fins. The bulb may be connected in any orientation and still retain its same cooling characteristics. A lens faceted circular surface also having a central opening disperses the photons in an overlapping manner to provide a uniform alighted area even though the bulb has a central opening.
