|I invented this magnetic strip reader and writer for Interoffice Express, LTD. This device allows the user to "swipe" a magnetic card manually for both reading and writing the magnetic information using an optically encoded mark along side the magnetic strip for synchronization. This patent (No. 6053415) is available for licensing. E-mail Dick Olson at ROlson22@aol.com or Mark Norwood at email@example.com for more information.|
|This Multi-Port Scanner was designed for HIAC/ROYCO. It is used to sample air contaminates in multiple locations in clean room environments. Remote control and simplicity of design contributed to the success of this product.|
|This redesign of the K-Lite combined all the features of the mounting, reflector and housing into a single piece design. This reduced the weight and costs and improved the performance.|
|This side-marker light was designed to provide brighter light and use less power using LEDs instead of conventional lamps, yet fit into the same form factor as the original design.|
|This pulse oximeter finger probe (Patent No. 5247931) was invented by Mark Norwood for Catalyst Research Corp. a division of Mine Safety Appliances.

|This carry-all folds flat and pops up for use. It's wire-frame design is light weight and sturdy.|
|Interoffice Express, LTD. needed a low cost solution to their patented inter-office mailing solution. The envelope incorporates a plastic dial that can be set to a six digit number code representing an office location. The code is represented in post net as well as code-39 simultaneously. The envelope can then be sent through existing automated mail sorting equipment. E-mail Dick Olson at ROlson22@aol.com if you are interested in more information on this product.|
|The client wanted a pump type fluid
dispenser that would seal the dispenser nozzle when the
pump actuator was released. This design was never
manufactured. You can see the pump in action here.
Bottle Sampler, the ABS2, was designed to replace an
earlier instrument. Ease-of-use and automation of the
sampling process were important to the success for this
product originally designed for HIAC/ROYCO. Now
manufactured by HACH Co.
It is still in production 22 years later!.

|I worked with Bruce Gamble to develop this canteen for dogs that incorporates a snap-on bowl and canteen Contact Bruce Gamble at B4Gamble@aol.com for more information.|
|This heat exchanger is designed from
off-the-shelf parts. The use of readily available parts
greatly reduced the cost of this design. This is how I
can save you money.
