An inductive power transfer device including: a resonant circuit, having a power transfer coil and a power transfer capacitor; a coupling coil, magnetically-coupled to the power transfer coil; a variable impedance; and a controller configured to determine the impedance value of the variable impedance based on predetermined criteria including: substantially regulating power provided to a load; tuning the resonant circuit resonant frequency substantially to a predetermined frequency; adjusting a frequency of a magnetic field associated with the power transfer coil; and/or adjusting an impedance reflected by the power transfer coil to a corresponding coupled power transfer coil.
WO/2015/112027 A FLUID DISPENSER||WO||30.07.2015|
||PCT/NZ2015/000005||TE PARI PRODUCTS LIMITED||BUCKLEY, Paul Fleming|
Described herein is a dispenser for dispensing fluid that, integrated into one hand piece, comprises a variable volume chamber with a plunger disposed within the chamber and a chamber inlet and outlet. The inlet and outlet communicate directly with a common chamber volume and the plunger translates in a linear direction relative to the chamber along a common longitudinal axis to expel fluid from the chamber (expel stroke) and/or draw fluid into the chamber (drawing stroke). The plunger is linked to a controller, a power source and a motor that drives translation movement of the plunger. The dispenser described herein offers a variety of advantages over the art including accurate dosing without the user having the manually regulate the dose amount – the amount to be dosed is related to the volume of fluid in the chamber which can be pre-set or varied automatically using sensors and controllers.

WO/2015/099544 A LINER FOR A TRUCK BED||WO||02.07.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000248||PROFORM PLASTICS LIMITED||SMITH, Nicholas|
A multi-part bed liner which is used for the protection of the bed of a truck or utility vehicle. It includes a base portion, with a channel around its perimeter, and a front wall as well as opposing side walls. The bottom edges of the side walls are inserted into the channel of the base portion and held in a friction fit relative to same through the use of a series of a series of lugs or protrusions extending into the channel from its outer edge. In preferred embodiments of the invention the base portion is formed from a rubber- like material while the front and side walls are manufactured from a thermoplastic or a thermoplastic compound. A wall may also be provided for the tail gate of the vehicle with which the invention is to be used.
WO/2015/099543 IMPROVEMENTS TO COUPLERS||WO||02.07.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000246||DOHERTY ENGINEERED ATTACHMENTS LIMITED||DOHERTY, Jeremy Glen|
A coupler to secure a work attachment to a work vehicle is disclosed. The work attachment includes a first pin and a second pin, while the coupler body has a first engagement portion which is configured to accept the first pin and a second engagement portion configured to accept the second pin. The coupler body has a guide and a slider configured to slide along the guide. The body of the slider includes a first locking portion and a second locking portion. The coupler has a trigger located on the coupler body such that the trigger is released by contact with the second pin; and a first actuator that is activated by release of the trigger. When the trigger is released the first actuator moves the slider along the guide into an engaged position where the first locking portion engages and retains the first pin in the first engagement portion of the coupler body and the second locking portion engages and retains the second pin in the second engagement portion of the coupler body at the same time.
