Hamilton Company | Date: 2016-08-10

The invention relates to an optical sensor element, comprising indicators, selected from luminescence-active means that are of the same type or different, and indicator protectors, and to a sensor, comprising at least one such sensor element, an energy source that excites the luminescence emission of the indicators, and a detector unit, wherein the sensor element or sensor is suitable for detecting molecular oxygen in a gaseous or liquid medium and/or for determining the molecular oxygen content of a gaseous or liquid medium and at least one layer of the sensor element bearing the indicator protectors is designed in such a way that the diffusion rate of the molecular oxygen formed on the indicator protectors by means of the reduction of strong oxidants back into the medium is greater than the diffusion rate of molecular oxygen from the medium in the direction of the at-least-one layer bearing the indicator molecules.


Patent
Keller, Swiedler, Krstanovic, Goltz, Hamilton Company and Groft | Date: 2010-08-25

A meter system is provided for controlling and monitoring a vehicle parking meter system, using multiple task-specific processors controlled via a shared bus and using rechargeable batteries and solar power sources.


Patent
Sonics Inc., Wingard, Chou, Hamilton Company, Swarbrick and Vakilotojar | Date: 2012-02-01

A method, apparatus, and system are described, which generally relate to an integrated circuit having an interconnect. The flow control logic for the interconnect applies a flow control splitting protocol to permit transactions from each initiator thread and/or each initiator tag stream to be outstanding to multiple channels in a single aggregate target at once, and therefore to multiple individual targets within an aggregate target at once. The combined flow control logic and flow control protocol allows the interconnect to manage simultaneous requests to multiple channels in an aggregate target from the same thread or tag at the same time.

Hamilton Company and Hamilton Bonaduz AG | Date: 2011-09-13

The present invention relates to a temperature adjustment device (10) for adjusting the temperature of at least one sample container (12), which temperature adjustment device (10) comprises, for optional heat-transferring coupling of the sample container (12) therewith and for isolation of the sample container (12) therefrom, at least one sample container holder (16) extending along a holder axis (A), the temperature adjustment device (10) comprising a first temperature adjustment zone (26) and a second temperature adjustment zone (31) which can be operated separately therefrom, the first and second temperature adjustment zones (26, 31) being arranged in different axial regions of the sample container holder (16) relative to the holder axis (A).


Patent
Hamilton Bonaduz AG and Hamilton Company | Date: 2011-09-02

The present invention relates to a process for the automated production of active substance beads having a gel-like carrier material, preferably a biopolymer, such as agarose, and having embedded in the carrier material a biologically active material, such as an active substance and/or a material which generates an active substance, comprising the following steps: a) provision of a flowable, solidifiable mixture comprising the carrier material and the biologically active material, b) solidification of a core bead by introducing a predetermined amount of the flowable mixture into a fluid bath, preferably a liquid bath, particularly preferably an oil bath, c) removal of the core bead from the fluid bath, wherein for carrying out step c), a bead contact surface of a bead receiving tool is used, and for this purpose step c) comprises either the following sub-step ca1) or the following sub-step cb1): ca1) creation of a locating engagement between the core bead and a preferably concave bead reduced-pressure contact surface of a bead reduced-pressure receiving tool by means of reduced pressure, or cb1) creation of a locating engagement between the core bead and a preferably concave bead gravity contact surface of a bead gravity receiving tool in the fluid bath by means of gravity.


Patent
Hamilton Company | Date: 2014-01-24

A caster wheel braking system for braking rotation of a caster wheel includes a caster having a caster plate, a horn base coupled with the caster plate and rotatable about a vertical axis, a pair of legs extending downwardly from the horn base, and at least one caster wheel coupled with the pair of legs and rotatable about a horizontal axis defined by a wheel axle. A mounting plate is spaced from the caster by a spacer. A movable plunger is disposed between the caster plate and the mounting plate and is horizontally movable through a slot provided in the spacer. A brake shoe is vertically movable by the movable plunger between a non-braking position in which the at least one caster wheel is permitted to rotate and a braking position in which the brake shoe exerts a braking force on the at least one caster wheel to at least partially hinder rotation of the at least one caster wheel. A pin may be coupled with the movable plunger and be configured to convert horizontal movement of the movable plunger to vertical movement of the brake shoe. Additionally, a biasing element may be provided adjacent to the brake shoe and be configured to bias the brake shoe toward the non-braking position or the braking position. One or more of the caster wheel braking systems may be provided on a transport vehicle configured to move along a ground surface.

Patent
Hamilton Company | Date: 2016-03-16

A fairing (1660) for a vehicle comprising: a main body portion having a first end (1664) and a second end (1666); a camera (1662) mounting portion (1680) located between said first end and said second end; the camera mounting portion comprising a mounting for enabling a camera to be removably attached to said fairing, and the mounting portion configured for enabling a camera to be at least partially enclosed in said fairing when attached to the mounting.


An automated positive pressure solid phase extraction apparatus and method comprising two tiered lifts devices each individually controllable to individually vertically translate within an elevator framework between a base on which the elevator framework is mounted and a manifold plate supported by the framework in a substantially horizontal plane parallel with and vertically above the two tiered lifts devices and a rectilinearly translating shuttle assembly comprising a shuttle supporting labware for rectilinear travel into and out of the elevator framework to handoff the labware to one of the two tiered elevator lifts or both.
