  • Patent number: 10935523
    Abstract: In the gas chromatograph, a light source is provided in a column oven. Since a space in which the light source is disposed needs not to be secured outside the column oven, the size of the gas chromatograph can be reduced. A first connecting section in a sample introducing unit and a second connecting section in a detector are provided in an upper part in the column oven. The light source emits light toward the upper surface of the inside of the column oven (second inner casing). Therefore, light from the light source can be emitted toward the upper surface of the inside of the column oven where the first connecting section in the sample introducing unit and the second connecting section in the detector are provided and thus an operator frequently performs maintenance. Thus, work efficiency in the gas chromatograph can be improved.

    Abstract: A twist-and-lock mounting bracket may secure a lighting fixture to a mounting surface. The twist-and-lock mounting bracket may define an aperture having features corresponding to the shape of a twist-and-lock element disposed on a housing of a lighting fixture. Accordingly, the twist-and-lock element may be configured to extend through the aperture while the corresponding features of the twist-and-lock element and the aperture are aligned. The housing may then be rotated such that the tabs do not align with the corresponding features of the aperture, and the twist-and-lock element is thereby prevented from sliding through the aperture. The mounting bracket may be secured to a junction box positioned within a mounting surface, or it may be secured to a biasing bracket having one or more second resilient members configured to engage the interior of a recessed can light, such that the lighting fixture may be secured to the recessed can light.

  • Patent number: 10557619
    Abstract: A light fixture having an upper and lower housing, and a mounting bracket adapted to mount to a junction box. The light fixture has a relatively short mounting bracket for surface mount configurations, and a relatively long mounting bracket for recess mount configurations, and a difference in the height of the long and short mounting brackets is equal to the height of the junction box. In the surface-mount and recess-mount configurations a circumferential edge of the upper housing abuts the mounting surface so the lighting fixture has the same external appearance and size in both configurations. The light fixture also has a pendant mode wherein the upper housing is suspended from the junction box by an elongated support. An enclosure for the junction box has a plurality of cut-outs and covers to accommodate various configurations of surface mounted conduit.
