Electronic components that are operable within remote control vehicles include Electronic Speed Controllers, radio control receivers, and telemetry transmitters. Hardware and software are described that support communication between a user computer and electronic components. A data link device has analog input and output interfaces that communicate to a mobile computing device such as smartphone. The data link device communicates with an electronic component to send and receive data such as parameters or operational data over a wired bidirectional bus interface. Software for performing data link operations run for example on an electronic component, a mobile computing device, a smartphone, a data link device, or a telemetry receive radio, or a combination of the above.

When a hobby enthusiast has recharged the battery for a remote controlled vehicle, such as a scale facsimile automobile, boat, helicopter or airplane, the battery must be connected again to the vehicle drive system, to provide power. This operation is typically performed by connecting each lead of an electronic speed controller to each corresponding lead of the battery, through a removable barrel receptacle lead and a mating barrel plug lead respectively, attached to each corresponding lead. An improved connector lead is described herein that protects components that may be attached to either lead in a connection. The charge dissipates in a resistive member that is physically coupled to a conductive member to form at least in part a first lead. When an improved lead is connected to a mating lead, the connection initially provides a charge dissipation path through the resistive member, but subsequently provides a bypass, current carrying conductive path around the resistive member from one component to another. By making use of an improved connector, electrical components are protected, not only from hot-swap current, but also from electrostatic discharge in general.


This invention relates to a system (1) for administrating and monitoring vehicle-related data for a plurality of remote vehicles (11), the vehicle-related data including one or more of the vehicles tax, insurance or roadworthiness certificate expiry date. The system comprises a central server (3) in communication with a plurality of remote devices (9) mounted in remote vehicles. The central server (3) has an accessible memory (5) and a communications module (7). The remote devices (9) each have a memory (33, 35), a communications module (37), a motion sensor (39) for detecting movement of the vehicle and a processor (41). The processor (41) runs computer program code operable to cause the communications module (37) to transmit a notification to the central server (3) on one of the tax, insurance or roadworthiness certificate expiry dates having elapsed and the motion sensor (39) having detected movement of the vehicle. An alert can then be sent to the relevant personnel to catch the motorist driving the vehicle (11) in question with reports generated as evidence where required.


Passive temperature control is provided to vessels too tall to be stored in a shallow, temperature-controlled tray or basin by a vertically oriented thermally-conductive tube. In one embodiment, an insulative collar covers the tray and insulates portions of the tube that extend above the top of the tray. Optional heat sinking fins and air convection holes increase heat transfer between the tube and the tray.

Clamping forceps and associated methods are provided that generally include a head section including first and second clamp members configured to cooperatively clamp so as to at least partially encircle a tumor or other structure, an elongated body section in cooperation with the head section, and a clamping mechanism at least partially movably mounted with respect to the elongated body section. The clamping forceps may include a control mechanism for variably controlling the clamping force, at least one sensor mounted with respect to the clamp member(s), means for fixating the clamp member(s) relative to tissue, the first and second clamp members structured to define a variable perimeter extent, and a clamping mechanism which accommodates variable rates of clamping action. Actuation of the clamping mechanism generally maintains substantially parallel actuation of the first and second clamp members with respect to the tumor or the other anatomical structure. Methods for use of the clamping forceps may include introducing the head section to the surgical site through an incision; positioning a trocar port at the surgical site; introducing at least a portion of the elongated body section to the surgical site through the trocar port; intra-corporeally connecting the head section with respect to the elongated body section; and extra-corporeally actuating the clamping mechanism so as to actuate the first and second clamp members into a clamping position around the tumor or other anatomical structure.

A refrigerated point-of-use food holding cabinet keeps food products cold in compartments having cross sections that are substantially U-shaped. Food products are kept refrigerated using heat-absorbing, heat-exchangers thermally coupled to the U-shaped compartment. Refrigeration is provided by either a conventional reversed-Brayton cycle, one or more Peltier devices or a chilled, re-circulating liquid that does not change phase as it circulates but which is chilled by another refrigeration system, such as a conventional refrigeration system. An optional cover helps prevent food flavor transfers between compartments. Semiconductor temperature sensors and a computer effectuate temperature control.

A composition comprising at least one ionized silicate mineral and water, wherein the at least one ionized silicate mineral is solvated in water, and wherein decomposition comprises an ionized germanium dioxide, its method of making, and its method of using are disclosed. While the composition is subject to a wide range of applications, it is especially suited for use in a coolant system for a combustion engine, and in particular, the coolant system for an internal combustion engine for vehicles.

A dispenser for viscous foods like condiments, batter and syrups employs a flexible plastic bag made of a flexible plastic material, one side of which or one end of which is formed to have a self-sealing, orifice formed in the wall of the bag by two slices or cuts in the plastic material. The cuts or slices form flexible vanes which deflect outwardly responsive to pressure from a viscous material and which return to their original shape when pressure on the food product is reduced or eliminated.
