Abstract

A hydraulic circuit includes a prime mover that is configured to generate an oscillating flow of hydraulic fluid, and an actuator that is driven by the prime mover and configured to provide oscillating motion and to be connected to a load in each direction of the motion. The hydraulic circuit also includes a reclamation device that is disposed in the hydraulic circuit between the prime mover and the actuator. The reclamation device captures and stores a portion of hydraulic fluid displaced from the actuator during a transition between opposed motions, where the portion of hydraulic fluid corresponds to an amount of hydraulic fluid equal to a volume of fluid required to compensate for compression of fluid within the hydraulic circuit due to system pressure and load pressure. The stored fluid is used by the circuit in a subsequent motion.

In the setting up step (105), a reaction condition is set up for the fluid divided into the at least two compartments in order to allow a reaction in each of the at least two compartments and to obtain a reaction result in each case. In the identification step (110), a signal, for example an optical signal, is identified that represents the reaction results of the reactions that may have taken place in the compartments. In the evaluation step (115), the optical signal is evaluated in order to determine the number of copies , taking into account the statistical distribution of the copies across the compartments and taking into account a reaction-specific detection probability function which indicates the probability that an amplification reaction has taken place in a compartment, according to the number of copies initially present in the compartment.

Abstract

A method of fabricating a nanoscale topography system for inducing unfolding of a DNA molecule for sequencing includes providing a substrate and creating trench walls on the substrate which define a trench therebetween. The method further includes depositing a layer of a block copolymer (BCP) in the trench and forming cylindrical domains by self-assembly of the BCP between the trench walls, removing a first portion of the cylindrical domains to create a vacant region in the trench, and depositing a subsequent layer of the BCP in the vacant region and forming spherical domains by self-assembly of the BCP between the trench walls adjacent a second portion of the cylindrical domains. The spherical domains form staggered post structures for unfolding the DNA molecule and the cylindrical domains form parallel channel structures for entry of the DNA molecule for sequencing.

Abstract

The invention relates to a tool device which is suitable for use with an, in particular hand-held, machine tool, having a drive device moving, in particular in oscillating fashion, about a drive axis. The tool device has a connection device which allows it to be fastened on a machine tool such that its drive axis and an axis of rotation of the tool substantially coincide. The connection device, for absorbing drive power, has at least two drive-surface regions, which are spaced apart from said axis of rotation of the tool and each have a multiplicity of surface-area points. Planes tangential to said surface-area points are inclined in relation to an axial plane which encloses the axis of rotation of the tool. Furthermore, said tangential planes are inclined in relation to a radial plane which extends perpendicularly to the axis of rotation of the tool. This means that the torque introduced into the tool device by the machine tool, via the drive device, is reliably absorbed.

Abstract

The invention relates to a power tool, in particular a hand-held power tool, which has a tool receiving device that is movable, in particular in an oscillating manner, about an output axis (2). The tool receiving device is designed to hold a tool device on the power tool such that the output axis and a tool rotation axis substantially coincide. The tool receiving device has at least one torque transmission region (9) and a holding device (4a, 4b). In order to transmit a drive force to the tool device, the torque transmission region has at least two output surface regions (9a) that are at a distance from said output axis and each have a multiplicity of surface points. Here, tangent planes to said surface points are inclined with respect to an axial plane which includes said output axis. Furthermore, the tangent planes are inclined with respect to a radial plane which extends perpendicularly to the output axis. In this way, the output torque is transmitted reliably to the tool device by the power tool via the tool receiving device.

Abstract

The invention relates to a machine tool, in particular a hand-held machine tool, which has a tool-accommodating device which can be moved, in particular in oscillating fashion, about a drive axis, in order to retain a tool device on the machine tool. The tool-accommodating device has at least one clamping device, at least one retaining device and at least one blocking device. The retaining device can be moved from at least one first, open position into at least one second, closed position. It is also the case that the retaining device can be forced by a clamping force, by way of the clamping device, preferably in the closing direction from said first, open position in the direction of said second, closed position. The blocking device can be moved between at least one first, blocking position and at least one second, unblocking position. It is possible here for said blocking device to block movement of the retaining device in at least one blocking position. A force applied to the blocking device directly or indirectly by the tool device moves said blocking device from one of said blocking positions into one of said unblocking positions. This allows the tool device to be inserted particularly quickly and straightforwardly into the machine tool.

Abstract

A power tool includes a linear activation switch incorporating features to prevent accidental activation. More particularly, the switch includes a switch cap that must be first rotated or pivoted before it can be linearly translated to activate the switch. The power tool includes a housing defining a guide track having a first section and an second section, offset from each other by a third section. The switch includes a switch cap having guide ribs, a first slidably disposed within the first section and a second rib one initially situated within the third section. The switch cap is pivotable about the first guide rib so that the second guide rib moves within the third section into alignment with the second section of the guide track. The switch cap can then be moved linearly with the second guide rib sliding within the second section, with this movement activating the switch.

Abstract

A router table comprises a table top, a bit mount, and a drive train. The bit mount is configured to hold a router bit such that the router bit extends from the table top defining a bit axis. The drive train is positioned under the table top and is operably connected between the bit mount and a drive coupling. The drive coupling is configured to engage a driven member, with the drive coupling defining a drive axis that is not coaxial with the bit axis. The driven member may be provided by a drive bit on a portable router secured to the table top. Operation of the portable router results in rotation of the driven member. Rotation of the driven member and associated drive coupling operates the drive train and results in rotation of the bit mount and associated router bit.

Abstract

Embodiments of the invention relate to premise, fire, security, or access control systems and their associated communication devices that can receive data routing commands from a security programming or monitoring center, and to a lesser extent, those devices that receive and transmit those data routing commands. The data routing command may instruct the premise communication device to route data to a specific destination address. The data routing commands may instruct the premise communication device to redirect, repeat, or send the data to multiple destinations. More specifically, the data routing command may instruct the premise communication device to route audio/video (A/V) data streams or files to a specified server, monitoring center, or other security address destination. By intelligently routing incoming data to a specific location on command, the data can be redirected to areas of greatest need. This technique enables the monitoring center to process the incoming data efficiently.
