Operating device of vehicle air conditioner

Pub Date: 2005-05-12

Pub Number: US20050098642

A mode selection unit, a blower unit and a temperature control unit are mounted on a cluster panel of a vehicle. The mode selection unit, the blower unit and the temperature control unit have a function of controlling the wind blow position, a function of controlling the wind blow rate and a function of controlling the wind blow temperature respectively, and are constituted by operating mechanisms mechanically separated from one another. Accordingly, the degree of freedom in the layout of the mode selection unit to the temperature control unit is improved so that it becomes easy to dispose them in accordance with the vehicle-side design.

Pub Number: US20050098004

System, including apparatus and method, for processing a material based on data input by manual deflection of a light beam.

Compounds and compositions for delivering active agents

Pub Date: 2005-05-12

Pub Number: US20050101671

Modified amino acid compounds useful in the delivery of active agents are provided. The active agents can be peptides. Methods of administration, such as oral, subcutaneous, sublingual, and intranasal administration and methods of preparation of the modified amino acid compounds are also provided.

Eccentric screw-type pump with spare stator

Pub Date: 2005-05-12

Pub Number: US20050100468

The present invention relates to the arrangement of a stator and a spare stator. In order to avoid a permanent correction in the length of the driving shaft, the spare stator is connected to the instantaneously operated stator or is configured in a single piece. Upon occurrence of a defined amount of wear, this stator combination is merely reversed through 180 relative to the longitudinal axis or an intermediate tube is inserted so that the spare stator arrives in the rotor region.

Combinational portable electronic device

Pub Date: 2005-05-12

Pub Number: US20050099360

A combinational portable electronic device has a first electronic device having a display panel and a second electronic device having also a display panel. The first electronic device has an accommodating groove with a first connection interface provided therein. The second electronic device has a second connection interface. The second electronic device is installed in the accommodating groove of the first electronic device with the first connection interface and the second connection interface electrically connected together. When a function operation of the second electronic device (e.g., a PDA) is performed, the displayed frame data can be sent to the first electronic device (e.g., an electronic book reader or a web-pad) for display.

Hydraulic circuit for hydraulic cylinder

Pub Date: 2005-05-12

Pub Number: US20050098326

A hydraulic circuit for a hydraulic cylinder capable of executing and adjusting a shock absorbing function at the time of stopping the operation of a cylinder piston rod and releasing the function, comprises a damping control valve (v1) having a first switching position (v11) which blocks the connection of the accumulation port (22) with outside and performs supply and discharge or discharge and supply of the operating oil with respect to the first cylinder chamber (3) and the second cylinder chamber (4), a second switching position (v12) connecting at least the accumulation port (22) and the second cylinder chamber (4), and a third switching position (v13) connecting at least the accumulation port (22) and the first cylinder chamber (3).

Process for producing carbostyril derivatives

Pub Date: 2005-05-12

Pub Number: US20050101631

The present invention provides a process for producing carbostyril derivatives (I) which are known to be useful as medical drug such as antithrombotic agent, cerebral circulation improver, anti-inflammatory agent, antiulcer agent, etc. in a high yield and a high purity. The carbostyril derivatives (I) can be produced by reacting a carbostyril derivative (II) with a tetrazole derivative (III) in the presence of a phase transfer catalyst.

Fire retardant intumescent coating

Pub Date: 2005-05-12

Pub Number: US20050101696

A fire retardant intumescent coating composition comprises: (a) 30 to 60% by weight of a phosphorous containing material which decomposes to produce phosphoric acid when the coating is exposed to fire; (b) 10 to 30% by weight of a thermosetting binder; (c) 2.5 to 10% by weight of a curing agent for the thermosetting binder; and (d) 5 to 40% by weight of a thermoplastic binder, wherein the active groups of the thermosetting and thermoplastic binders are chosen so as to impart charring and blowing functions to the intumescent coating composition. The thermosetting binder is advantageously a hydroxylated thermosetting binder, suitably an epoxy resin. The thermoplastic binder is advantageously an oxygenated heterocyclic thermoplastic binder, suitably an aldehyde and/or ketone resin. The coating composition may contain I to 10% by weight of a colouring agent, suitably titanium dioxide. The coating composition may contain 0.1 to 10% by weight of melt viscosity modifier, suitably hydrogenated castor oil.

Portable easel

Pub Date: 2005-05-12

Pub Number: US20050098703

The portable easel includes a viewable storage compartment for enclosing and transporting artist supplies and drawing materials. The portable easel includes an upper housing portion hingedly attached to a lower housing portion so as to be movable between an opened position and a closed position. The storage compartment is formed into the lower housing portion. In the opened position, the upper housing portion is positioned at an inclined angle with respect to the lower housing portion thereby providing an inclined drawing surface. In the closed position, the upper housing portion overlays the lower housing portion so as to enclose the storage compartment formed therein. To facilitate viewing of the storage compartment when the upper housing portion is in the closed position, the upper housing portion or a section thereof is formed from transparent or translucent plastic.
