Medical item dispensing system

A system for monitoring and dispensing medical items includes a plurality of hook registers (10). Each of the hook registers includes sensors (48, 60, 62, 64) sensing the removal or addition of a medical item to the storage location on the hook register. Each hook register has a microprocessor (66) connected to the sensor which stores a count of the items added or removed from the location. The microprocessor also includes location identifying information specifically associated with the particular hook register. The microprocessor is periodically polled by a controller (72) which reads and stores the count and location identifying information from each of the hook registers. The controller information is periodically read by a data terminal (76) which is connected through a local area network (82) to a remote computer (84) having a processor and data store. A user of the data terminal is enabled to specify a patient for whom medical items will be used when the items are removed from the hook registers or other storage locations. In addition, the system also monitors inventories of items and levels of usage by users. The system also monitors and controls the dispense of other medical items from box registers (110) as well as controls the dispense of items from secure storage locations such as electronic lock drawers (96) and medicine dispensers (100).

Single automatic document feeder sensor for media leading edge and top cover being opened detection

A single plate flatbed scanner utilizing a single sensor to detect both opening of a lid covering the plate and the leading edge of an automatically fed document. The flatbed scanner includes a contact glass plate defining a flatbed scanning area where a document to be scanned may be manually positioned. An automatic document feeder (ADF) scan window where ADF-fed documents are scanned is defined within the flatbed scanning area. An image sensor is maintained at a fixed position in the ADF scan window while scanning ADF-fed documents. To scan a manually fed document, the image sensor moves under the flatbed scanning area so as to scan an image of the document. Since the ADF scan window and the flatbed scanning area both are defined in the same area of the contact glass plate, a document inadvertently left on the contact glass blocks the ADF scan window and prevents the scanning of an ADF fed document. A single sensor is utilized to detect the opening of the ADF which uncovers the contact glass to allow manual placement of a document. Detecting the opening of the glass plate cover is used to determine whether or not a document has been left on the glass plate after scanning. The same sensor is also utilized to detect the leading edge of an ADF fed document to initiate the scanning process at the precise time the document reaches the ADF scan window.

Full-automatic film sticking machine

The invention relates to the technical field of thin film sticking equipment and particularly relates to a full-automatic film sticking machine. The full-automatic film sticking machine comprises a frame, a feeding device, two sets of cleaning devices, two sets of film tearing and sticking devices, an overturning device, a discharging device and a rotatable circular disc, wherein at least seven clamp stations are arranged at the periphery of the rotatable circular disc; the feeding device, one cleaning device, one film tearing and sticking device, the overturning device, the other cleaning device, the other film tearing and sticking device and the discharging device are sequentially arranged at the periphery of the rotatable circular disc in a surrounding manner and correspond to the seven clamp stations one by one. Based on a full-automatic film sticking machine for various types of products, which is applied to a panel display industry, the equipment integrates the functions of feeding, film tearing, cleaning and film sticking; with a CCD (Charge Coupled Device) alignment technology, the film sticking precision is greatly improved; the full-automatic film sticking machine adopts a special suction disc process and can be adapted to base films with different sizes, different specifications and different materials; a high-precision and high-efficiency full-automatic film sticking process can be realized.
