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.

Cycle Clutch Interlock Mechanism
This article describes a mechanism to prevent double cycling of a single
cycle clutch. The essential portions of a single cycle clutch are illustrated above.
Latch actuator 10 is held in a latch position by latch 12. Latch 12 may be
removed from engagement with the latch surface 14 of latch actuator 10 by
mechanical or electrical means, as desired.
Upon the removal of latch 12 from latch surface 14 of actuator 10, spring 16
will rotate latch actuator 10 about pivot 18. As latch actuator 10 rotates in a
clockwise direction about pivot 18, slot 20, which engages a pin 22, will pull
downward on pin 22. Pin 22 is attached to clutch latch 24 which, in turn, is
pivoted about pivot 26. Clutch latch 24 is spring biased by spring 28 in a
clockwise direction. By pulling downward on pin 22, the clutch 24 will be
removed from the cycle Clutch sleeve 30, allowing the cycle clutch sleeve and
cam 32, attached thereto, to rotate.
As cam 32 rotates, cam follower 34 will be engaged, thereby causing the
counter rotation of latch actuator 10 in a counter-clockwise direction. This will
allow the restoration of latch 12 to hold clutch latch actuator 10 in its latched
position. Slot 20 will act on pin 22, thus restoring clutch latch 24 to its engaged
position. The slot 20 acting on pin 22 will likewise hold latch 24 in a position to
engage the face of cycle clutch sleeve 30. The impact and forces generated by
the stopping of cycle clutch sleeve 30 and c...
