MHT Holdings has three (3) Federal US Patents on various components of our inspeXtor® Platform.
- 1. Autonomous distributed lighting system – 9,955,544
A system and method that uses a tag-driven network architecture controlled by one or more central controllers. Unique tags are associated with various system components such as remote switches, sensors and other peripherals. A tag is assigned to a node when the node is first entered into the network. A distributed policy creates relationships between tags of various different equipment. The tag typically defines what the policy is for a particular local node. The node executes the policy that is supplied in its tag by accessing a recipe associated with that tag. If a device is not working, other similar devices can take over its task simply by executing the recipe associated with the failed device’s tag instead of their own.
- 2. System and method of two-wire control of multiple luminaries – 10,575,379
A system and method for controlling a multiplicity of luminaries connected to a single wire pair. The luminaries contain minimum circuitry to allow dimming and color tuning by pulses on the wire pair without the need for a separate control wire or control communication bus or network. A single luminary can be color tuned to many different colors as well as dimmed and turned on and off. A driver module drives the wire pair and receives commands over a network The driver module contains a pulse generation circuit that generates and applies pulses to the two-wire output. The amplitude of some the pulses control color of the luminary by selecting different LEDs in the luminary to light, while other pulses control brightness
- 3. Energy source backup charging power supply that adapts to a variable input voltage – 10,477,642
A power supply that senses the variable voltage on LED devices and uses this voltage to force current into a storage device such as a battery to charge it. When power fails, a DC-DC boost converter supplies the necessary voltage taking current from the battery to maintain the LEDs at percentage nominal current level.
