Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

An Unload Stacker Sensor Which Will Prevent The Stacker
From Being Unloaded if Blocked by a Person or Object
Currently, the stacker on many high volume printer
products will unload whether or not the area in front of the stacker is
clear. Therefore, there's a potential
for someone standing in front of the finisher to be hit when the stacker is
unloaded. Or, if an item is temporarily
placed in front of the finisher, and the stacker is unloaded, the item and/or
stacker could be damaged.
A new stacker sensor would detect whether or not the
area in front of the stacker door is clear before attempting to unload the
stacker. If the area in front of the
stacker is blocked, the stacker will not unload until it senses the area is
clear. If the stacker does start
unloading and then comes into contact with a person or object, the stacker will
halt (much like what an automatic garage door opener does) until the area in
front of the stacker is clear.
