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.

Fiber-Optic Cable Strain Relief Clamp
This strain relief design is based on the "claim cleat" or "jam cleat" principle
option seen on sailboats for securing lines.
Figs. 1-3 show top, side and end views of a single clamp. The primary
design feature of this claim is a V-shaped groove 10, the side walls of which
contain ribs 12 are set at an angle to the base 14. These features can be
provided in a single unit to hold one cable 16 as shown in phantom line in Fig. 4,
or combined in multiples 12a-12d (Fig. 5) to hold many cables in a parallel array
The clamp works as follows: The cable is simply pressed into the V groove
10 with moderate pressure. If the cable is then pulled from the left as shown in
Figs. 1, 2, 4 and 5, the ribs 12 (12a-12l in Fig. 5) will force the cable deeper into
the V groove 10 (10a-101 in Fig. 5), thus increasing the holding strength of the
clamp. To release the cable, the cable is pulled in the opposite direction, up and
away from the clamp.
Since the cable position adapts to the clamp position instead of vice versa,
the clamp has no moving parts and can be of simple and sturdy construction.
