  • Patent number: 8210558
    Abstract: A secondary lock assembly for a fifth wheel, where the fifth wheel includes a hitch plate with a rearward opening slot to receive a trailer kingpin and a transversely sliding primary locking member for retaining the kingpin within the slot. The assembly comprises a tie bar pivotally connected at its middle to the primary locking member and a transversely oriented pull bar pivotally connected at an inner end to the forward end of the tie bar. The pull bar comprises a rearward offset tab. A latch is pivotally connected roughly at the center of the latch to the forward end of the tie bar, and also pivotally connected at a point rearwardly and inwardly offset from the first pivoting connection to the offset tab. A detent extends from a transverse wall comprised in said hitch plate such that said detent lies in the same horizontal plane as said latch.

  • Patent number: 8149014
    Abstract: An I/O driver has v/i characteristic control for maintaining a substantially flat output impedance response using a transmission gate configuration at an I/O output pad. The configuration includes a linear resistive element electrically connected at an I/O pad for limiting a processed data I/O signal, an active impedance element for receiving and processing the data signal, which comprises data represented by a series of voltage state transitions, and pull-up and pull-down array calibration words, for generating and outputting a processed I/O output signal to the resistive element to output a substantially flat v/i response at switching of the data signal.

  • Patent number: 7938429
    Abstract: An integrated cross-member mount comprises an inter-frame mount seated within opposing longitudinal channels of parallel adjacent truck frame members and comprises a top surface within each lateral portion of which is defined a longitudinally-oriented row of spaced-apart, shaped apertures, and at least two substantially vertical flanges extending downward from the lateral periphery of the top surface that are dimensioned to be conforming to the inner surfaces of truck frame members. Also included is a sliding pedestal having lateral skids seated upon respective portions of rows of spaced-apart apertures and extending into vertical gaps between the top surface of the mount and the truck frame member. Each skid includes a plurality of spaced-apart, shaped skid apertures that can align with a corresponding plurality of shaped apertures within the top surface of the mount.

  • Patent number: 7938428
    Abstract: A bracket assembly for an adjustable fifth wheel hitch is suitable for mounting to a slide rail assembly, which itself is mounted to parallel longitudinal truck frame members, where the slide rails have a generally t-shaped cross-section. The slide rail is comprised of a horizontal portion and a vertical portion, the vertical portion including a plurality of spaced-apart gaps. The bracket assembly comprises a bracket body with longitudinal disposed front and rear ends, with respect to the truck body, a longitudinal channel defined in the underside that extends from front and rear openings defined in the respective surfaces of the front and rear ends with a generally t-shaped cross-section to slidably receive said slide rail. The bracket body also has two spaced-apart transverse channels defined in the underside, perpendicular to the longitudinal channel. The transverse channels align with two of the space-apart gaps as the bracket body is slid along the slide rail.
