|20110084650||BATTERY CHARGER - A battery charger is provided. The charger includes an AC input for connection to a source of AC power and a plurality of DC outputs each being connectable to a battery bank. A user interface is provided for inputting battery information including battery voltage and battery type for each DC output. A main controller is in communication with the user interface and receives the battery information from the user interface. The main controller uses the battery information to provide independent charging instructions for each DC output. At least one power module is in communication with the main controller and receives the charging instructions from the main controller. The power module is configured to convert the AC power from the AC input to DC power and is selectively connectable with each of the plurality DC outputs. The power module is configured such that the charging instructions from the main controller direct the power module as to which DC output to connect and a charge voltage and a charge amps to be provided by the power module to that DC output.||04-14-2011|
|20100128433||Cap for Electronics Enclosure - A pedestal style electronics enclosure provides an upright housing for enclosing electronic components. Installed at the top of the housing can be a hollow enclosure cap that defines an internal air gap. The air gap can be located between an upper, dome-like shield plate exposed to the exterior and a lower, contoured guide plate exposed to the interior of the enclosure. The air gap can help buffer the enclosure from solar radiation impinging upon the exterior shield plate. The interior contoured guide plate can help direct heated air rising in the interior of the enclosure to one or more vent panels located about the periphery of the cap. The hollow enclosure cap can be comprised of thermoplastic material and can be made as a single piece, monolithic structure produced by, for example, a blow molding process.||05-27-2010|
