  • Publication number: 20240067691
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides interferon receptor agonists with improved safety profiles and therapeutic indices. The interferon receptor agonists are attenuated through masking and/or reduced receptor binding as compared to a wild-type interferon. IFN receptor agonists optionally further comprise a targeting moiety, e.g., a targeting moiety that recognizes a tumor- or immune cell-associated antigen and directs the interferon receptor agonist to a tumor site and/or tumor-reactive immune cells. The disclosure further provides pharmaceutical compositions comprising the interferon receptor agonists, and methods of use of the interferon receptor agonists in therapy, as well as nucleic acids encoding the interferon receptor agonists, recombinant cells that express the interferon receptor agonists and methods of producing the interferon receptor agonists.

  • Publication number: 20230391844
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides IL2 proproteins comprising an IL2 moiety that is masked with an IL2R? moiety and a protease-cleavable linker, configured such that the IL2R? moiety is released from the IL2 moiety upon the action of a protease, e.g., at a tumor site. The IL2 proproteins optionally further comprise a targeting moiety, e.g., a targeting moiety that recognizes a tumor-associated antigen and directs the proprotein to a tumor site. The disclosure further provides pharmaceutical compositions comprising the IL2 proproteins, and methods of use of the IL2 proproteins in therapy, as well as nucleic acids encoding the IL2 proproteins, recombinant cells that express the IL2 proproteins and methods of producing the IL2 proproteins.

  • Publication number: 20230354494
    Abstract: A load control system for controlling a plurality of lighting loads located in a space may be configured to track the location of one or more tracked devices. The load control system may comprise a system controller, lighting control devices, e.g., for controlling a plurality of lighting loads, and tracked devices. The tracked devices may each transmit beacon messages. The lighting control devices may receive the beacon message. The lighting control devices may measure a communication quality metric of each of the beacon messages, and process the measured communication quality metrics received over a period of time to determine a processed communication quality metric for the tracked device. The lighting control devices may transmit tracking data to the system controller. The system controller may determine a location of the tracked device. For example, the system controller may determine the location of the tracked device via trilateration.

  • Publication number: 20230309209
    Abstract: A control module for a lighting fixture may include an input circuit (e.g., a wireless communication circuit) that may be susceptible to noise generating by a noise-generating source (e.g., a lighting control device in the lighting fixture). The control circuit may execute a self-test procedure to determine if the magnitude of the noise is acceptable or unacceptable for normal operation of the control module. During the self-test procedure, the control circuit may measure a noise level at a connection of the input circuit and determine if the noise level causes the self-test procedure to fail. The control circuit may control the lighting load to multiple intensities, measure noise levels of the output signal at each intensity, and process the noise levels to determine if the test has passed or failed. The control circuit may illuminate a visual indicator to provide an indication that the self-test procedure has failed.

  • Publication number: 20230199611
    Abstract: A load control system may include control devices configured to communicate via a network. The network may include router devices (e.g., a leader device and other router devices) for enabling communication of messages throughout the network. Boundary router devices may be assigned to assist with communications around a noise source. The boundary router devices may be identified as being outside of a first range from the noise source and within a second range from the noise source. Control device within the first range that are closer to the noise source may be assigned as end devices. The boundary router devices that are outside of the first range may be close enough to the end devices within the first range to assist the end devices with communication around the noise source.

  • Patent number: 11683235
    Abstract: A control device may be configured to delay an attachment procedure while attachment messages are being transmitted over the network. The control device may be configured to initiate an attachment procedure with a router device on a network at the end a back-off period of time. The attachment procedure may include transmitting attachment messages (e.g., parent request messages) that enable the control device to transmit and receive messages over the network through the router device. During the back-off period of time, the control device may determine an attachment message is received from another control device on the network. And, if an attachment message (e.g., a parent request messages and/or a link request message) is received from another control device, the control device may increase the back-off period of time (e.g., delaying when the control device initiates its attachment procedure).

  • Publication number: 20230189410
    Abstract: Devices of a load control system may communicate with each other via a network. The load control system may include different control devices, such as load control devices, input devices, or other devices capable of communicating with each other to perform load control. These control devices may be capable of providing feedback to a user that indicates different network information that may be used for network diagnostics and/or configuration. For example, a lighting control device may be capable of providing feedback via a corresponding lighting load that indicates network information that may be used in network diagnostics and/or configuration.

  • Publication number: 20220345363
    Abstract: A load control system may be commissioned using beacons. The load control system may include control devices that each include a beacon transmitting circuit configured to transmit a beacon that comprises an identifier associated with the control device. A network device, such as a mobile device, may discover a control device based on the beacon received from the control device. In response to discovery of the control device, the control device may be added to a temporary group of control devices for being collectively configured and/or controlled. Control devices may be discovered based on the signal strength at which the beacons are received. The control devices may provide feedback to a user in response to confirmation messages to indicate to a user that the lighting control device has been added to the temporary group. The control devices may stop providing the feedback after they are removed from the temporary group.
