Abstract

A prestaging, gesture-based, access control system includes a local access assembly, a mobile device, a storage medium, and a processor. The assembly includes a controller to effect actuation between access and no-access states. The mobile device is carried by a user, and includes a detection system configured to detect a prestaging event inherently performed by the user toward an intent to gain access and followed by the detection of a primary intentional gesture specifically performed by the user toward the intent to gain access. The storage medium and the processor are configured to receive prestaging event information and primary intentional gesture information from the detection system, and execute an application to determine the performance of the prestaging event from the prestaging event information, then determine the performance of the primary intentional gesture from the primary intentional gesture information if the prestaging event is determined to have occurred.

If these credentials are authenticated, the first access control device (16a) allows access to its associated first secured element (17a) and puts the access control devices (16a, 16b) in the second mode, viz. the secure-pass-through-mode. Any request to access a second secured element (17b) received from the mobile device (12) in the second mode is passed on and treated as an authenticated request to a second access control device (16b). The access control devices (16a, 16b) allow access to their associated secured elements (17a, 17b) based on whether the type of access being requested is consistent with the type of credentials.

Abstract

A control system of a detection system for measuring one or more conditions within a predetermined area includes a control unit having at least one processor for implementing an algorithm and a fiber harness having at least one fiber optic cable for transmitting light, the at least one fiber optic cable defining at least one node arranged to measure the one or more conditions. A sensor is operably coupled to the at least one node, wherein the sensor receives scattered light associated with the at least one node and generates signals corresponding to the scattered light. A switch is operably coupled to the sensor and to the control unit. The switch selectively provides signals from the sensor to the control unit for processing to determine at least one of a presence and magnitude of the condition within the predetermined area.

Abstract

A detection system for measuring one or more conditions within a predetermined area including a fiber harness having at least one fiber optic cable for transmitting light. The at least one fiber optic cable defines a plurality of nodes arranged to measure the one or more conditions. A control system is operably coupled to the fiber harness such that scattered light associated with the plurality of nodes is transmitted to the control system. The control system analyzes the scattered light from each of the plurality of nodes individually and the control system analyzes the scattered light from each of the plurality of nodes collectively to determine at least one of a presence and magnitude of the one or more conditions within the predetermined area.

Abstract

An air conditioning system that comprises a controller that is in electrical communication with a compressor, a condenser fan, a temperature sensor that measures the temperature of the ambient air, a temperature sensor that measures the temperature of a condenser coil of the air conditioning system, and a low pressure switch (LPS) that measure the pressure of a refrigerant disposed within the air conditioning system. An algorithm resident on the controller controls the controller to enter a low ambient cooling mode when the temperature of the ambient air is less than a set temperature. The algorithm further controls the controller so that a minimum and/or maximum cycling frequency is imposed on the condenser fan. The algorithm further controls the controller so that the controller does not respond to an LPS trip during the early part of a cooling cycle under low outdoor temperature conditions, which might not accurately indicate a system fault, but still shuts down the compressor in response to an LPS trip under conditions that truly indicate a system fault.
