A power supply system including a thermal current limiting device operating due to high temperatures. At predetermined temperatures, the device acts to incrementally control the output of a power supply. An implementation of the device may be found in a voltage or power regulator wherein a constant output voltage or power is desired. As temperature increases, the power supply system is not switched off, rather current output is adjusted in a controlled manner thereby eliminating the need for the device to be entirely shut down for a time period. A back-up battery is used to provide supplementing current needed by the load.

Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
