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.

Paper Path Switch
A resilient conductor brush is positioned over an electrically conductive
paper path guide to detect passage of a nonconductive medium.
Conductive fibers 10, such as stainless steel or the like, are held together by
conductive base 12. Fibers 10 brush against and establish electrical contact with
conductive backing plate 15. Plate 15 also forms the guide for paper path or the
like. Documents introduced as indicated by arrow 16 force flexible strands
against the end of upper paper guide 20 into a partially deflected position. Thus,
brush 10 tends to keep the leading edge of a nonconductive medium 16 against
the guide 15 while nonconductive medium 16 breaks the electrical circuit contact
between plates 15 and brushes 10. After passage of medium 16, strands 10
return to their circuit-completing position, as shown. The device provides a
relatively inexpensive detector switch for such usages as paper-entry detection
or the like
