Schneider Electric USA Assigned Patent for Arc-Fault, Ground Fault Interrupter

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 11 -- Schneider Electric USA, Andover, Massachusetts, has been assigned a patent (9,810,741) developed by two co-inventors for "arc-fault and ground fault interrupter using a single ground fault sensor and single ADC." The co-inventors are Issa Vignon Drame, West Allis, Wisconsin, and Randall James Gass, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The abstract states: "Sampling for arc-fault detection, ground-fault detection, and grounded-neutral fault detection uses a single analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The arc-fault and ground-fault sampling occurs at regular sampling periods that are relatively short com pared to the time between them, thus allowing grounded-neutral fault sampling to occur before and/or after one of these sampling periods. A predefined event may be used to ensure the grounded-neutral fault sampling occurs immediately before and/or after one of the periodic sampling periods. The predefined event may be the expiration of a timer or the time for a sinusoidal signal in a ground fault sense circuit to make a predefined number of zero-crossings. This avoids interference between the arc-fault sampling, the ground-fault sampling and grounded-neutral fault sampling, allowing a single ADC to perform all samplings concurrently. The timing of the predefined event may be periodically reset to compensate for any changes due to temperature and/or over time."

The patent application was filed on Sept. 13, 2013 (14/911,685). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=9,810,741.PN.&OS=PN/9,810,741&RS=PN/9,810,741

Monsanto Technology Assigned Patent for Plants, Seeds of Hybrid Corn Variety CH541984

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 11 -- Monsanto Technology, St. Louis, has been assigned a patent (9,807,959) developed by three co-inventors for "plants and seeds of hybrid corn variety CH541984." The co-inventors are Gregory J. Holland, Troy, Ohio, Brett A. Ochs, Evansville, Indiana, and Gary R. Stangland, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The abstract states: "The invention relates to the soybean variety designated 01058472. Provided by the invention are the seeds, plants and derivatives of the soybean variety 01058472. Also provided by the invention are tissue cultures of the soybean variety 01058472 and the plants regenerated therefrom. Still further provided by the invention are methods for producing soybean plants by crossing the soybean variety 01058472 with itself or another soybean variety and plants produced by such methods."

The patent application was filed on May 23, 2016 (15/162,416). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=9,807,959.PN.&OS=PN/9,807,959&RS=PN/9,807,959

Mestek Machinery Assigned Patent for Duct Blank Seam, Apparatus

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 11 -- Mestek Machinery, Westfield, Massachusetts, has been assigned a patent (9,810,447) developed by Michael C. Borwig, Swisher, Iowa, for a "duct blank seam and apparatus for making a duct blank seam." The abstract states: "A flanged duct blank has a male part defined by lead notches formed at each side of a leading end and has a female part defined by trail notches formed at each side of a trailing end. The male part includes a lock tab. The female part includes a leg part and a Z-bend. The Z-bend includes a leg part and a gap. The duct blank is repeatedly clamped and bent by a pivoting wiper to form a duct portion. The pivoting wiper includes a clench tool that has a retractable rib and a retractable roller. With the lock tab inserted into the Z-bend and the retractable rib engaged with the Z-bend, the retractable roller clenches the leg part over the lock tab to lock the male and female parts together in a duct seam."

The patent application was filed on Jan. 7, 2015 (14/591,070). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=9,810,447.PN.&OS=PN/9,810,447&RS=PN/9,810,447
