 Start up self-testing  airway pressure sensor for anesthesia machine patent thumbnailnew patent Start up self-testing airway pressure sensor for anesthesia machine
Disclosed is a starting up self-testing method of an airway pressure sensor for an anesthesia machine. In a manual state, a pressure value of the pressure sensor is detected, and after the detection, if the value is within an airway pressure measurement range but not within a sensor zero point voltage range, the anesthesia machine is switched to a machine-controlled state to detect the pressure value of the pressure sensor, so that under the machine-controlled state, an airway is in communication with a bellows to enable gas possibly left in the airway to flow into the bellows to thus change the pressure value in the airway, and hence if the current pressure value of the pressure sensor is reduced or directly in the sensor zero point voltage range, the pressure sensor is valid..

Spark plug for a gas-powered internal combustion engine


A spark plug for a stationary, gas-powered internal combustion engine, having a metallic body, an insulator mounted in a passage of the body, a center electrode passing through the insulator, a ground electrode mounted on the body that, together with the center electrode, forms a spark air gap, and a cap attached to the body. The cap shields the center and ground electrodes from the combustion chamber after the spark plug is installed in a combustion chamber of the internal combustion engine, and that, together with the body of the spark plug, forms a prechamber in which the center and ground electrodes are located.
