  • Patent number: 10116089
    Abstract: A connector proofed against accidental disengagement is disclosed. The connector includes a socket. The socket has a base, at least one magnetic member with a pawl, at least one energized coil assembly, and a sensor. The base has a hole. The magnetic member and the energized coil assembly are disposed in the base with the sensor. When a plug is inserted into the hole of the base of the socket, the sensor can recognize the plug being inserted into the hole of the base and the energized coil assembly can be energized to cause the pawl of the magnetic member to engage and lock the plug in place. The connection remains until the energized coil assembly causes the pawl to disengage, allowing separation of the plug from the socket.

  • Patent number: 8665382
    Abstract: A pivoting device especially useful in aircraft passenger cabins that can pivot a monitor between stowed and open positions, the pivoting device including a forward/reverse rotatable driving motor. An electromagnetic brake holds the monitor in stowed and opened positions A power unit powers the motor and the electromagnetic brake. A controller controls the pivoting movement of the monitor. The power unit includes a rectifier circuit that transforms AC to a DC, a step-up circuit that steps up the transformed voltage, a voltage regulator that adjusts the transformed voltage to a prescribed DC voltage, and a retraction power retention circuit including a capacitor. When no source voltage is detected while the monitor is in its opened state, the capacitor supplies the power to a voltage regulator of the power circuit, deactivates the electromagnetic brake and reverse rotates the motor to drive the monitor to its stowed position.
