|20140085096||RAIL SURGE VOLTAGE PROTECTOR WITH FAIL DISCONNECT - A surge protector for use with a two line signal path or control circuit. The surge protector has two terminals for connecting to both line signals as well as provisions for earth grounding. The surge protector has a surge protection stage and a short detection stage for detecting imbalances in the signal. The surge protector also includes a trigger stage which activates an electromechanical device to disconnect the two terminals from the rest of the surge protector when the short detection stage detects a short. The surge protector further includes visual indicators for indicating an operating status and a short detection.||03-27-2014|
|20130293997||RIGID FLEX ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE PROTECTION DEVICE - An EMP/HEMP protection device for protecting equipment from electromagnetic pulses. The protection device includes a housing defining a cavity therein and separated into two chambers, a dirty chamber for propagation of signals before filtering of electromagnetic interference, and a clean chamber, isolated from the dirty chamber, for propagation of signals after filtering. A rigid-flex printed circuit board (PCB) is disposed in the cavity for facilitating electrical connections between the chambers. Surface mount electrical components for EMP/HEMP protection are coupled with the rigid-flex PCB. Power and/or data signals are transferred from the dirty chamber to the clean chamber though a wave guide below cutoff (WBC). The WBC is formed from opposing electrical ground planes within a center PCB of the rigid-flex PCB. An electrically conductive and weather sealing gasket is disposed in the cavity of the housing for further EMI isolation.||11-07-2013|
|20130242443||DC POWER SURGE PROTECTOR - A DC surge protection circuit for protecting hardware from surges. During operation when no surge condition is present, the circuit passes signals from an input to an output through an inductance. When a surge is present, the circuit conducts a portion of the surge through at least one diode and diverts the surge to a ground node. A gas tube begins to conduct a portion of the surge above a first voltage level after the at least one diode first begins to conduct. A first MOV begins to conduct a portion of the surge above a second voltage level after the gas tube begins to conduct. The circuit may include a status portion. The circuit may be within an enclosure for plug-in to a motherboard or within an enclosure of an in-line connector for connection with a cable. The circuit may be configured to attach directly to a frame.||09-19-2013|
|20130208387||REDUCED LET THROUGH VOLTAGE TRANSIENT PROTECTION OR SUPPRESSION CIRCUIT - A low let-through voltage surge suppression or protection circuit for protecting hardware or equipment from electrical surges. During operation when no surge condition is present, the circuit allows propagation of signals from a source to a load along a signal path. When a surge is present, the circuit senses and diverts the surge away from the signal path, utilizing common mode and/or differential mode surge protection. An electronic filter is connected in parallel with surge suppression circuit elements for reducing the let through voltage that would otherwise propagate and require a higher power surge suppression circuit element to mitigate. Cascading multiple electronic filters in parallel with surge suppression circuit elements further reduces voltage let through.||08-15-2013|
|20130208380||TRANSIENT CONTROL TECHNOLOGY CIRCUIT - An active surge suppression or protection circuit for protecting hardware or equipment from electrical surges. During operation when no surge condition is present, the circuit passes signals from an input source to a connected load along a signal path. When a surge is present, the circuit automatically senses and diverts the surge away from the signal path. A switching component is provided along the signal path for either allowing transmission or preventing transmission of a signal along the signal path. Upon diverting the surge, the circuit automatically changes the switching component from a closed state (for allowing transmission) to an open state (for preventing transmission). After the surge has passed, the circuit automatically changes the switching component from the open state to the closed state. Other automatic circuit behaviors may also be achieved in response to the diversion of a surge condition from the signal path.||08-15-2013|
|20110279943||DC PASS RF PROTECTOR HAVING A SURGE SUPPRESSION MODULE - A surge suppressor device includes a first housing defining a first cavity, input and output conductors disposed in the first cavity of the first housing, a capacitor connected in series with the input conductor and the output conductor, a first spiral inductor having an inner edge connected to the input conductor and an outer edge and a second spiral inductor having an inner edge connected to the output conductor and an outer edge. The surge suppressor device further includes a second housing defining a second cavity and connected to the first housing, a feed-through connecting the first cavity to the second cavity, a non-linear protection device positioned in the second cavity of the second housing and a first electrical wire passing through the feed-through and connecting the outer edge of the first spiral inductor to the non-linear protection device.||11-17-2011|
|20110273845||HIGH POWER BAND PASS RF FILTER HAVING A GAS TUBE FOR SURGE SUPPRESSION - A high power band pass RF filtering device having a housing for containing a printed circuit board with filtering components for achieving strong attenuation of out-of-band signals. An input port and an output port on the housing electrically connect to a respective input node and output node on the printed circuit board. Surge protection elements are connected at the input port and at the output port for dissipating surge conditions present at the input port or the output port to the housing before the surge travels through the printed circuit board. A non-surge signal present on the input port can travel through the filtering components on the printed circuit board towards the output port. An oil or other fluid is disposed and completely contained within the housing and contacts the printed circuit board for cooling the printed circuit board or the filtering components.||11-10-2011|
