American Auto-Matrix announced that it resolved its patent infringement lawsuit against TSI Inc. with an amicable and mutually beneficial settlement. The lawsuit, which had been pending in federal court since May 17, 2010, involved AMM’s U.S. Patent number 5,764,579, entitled “System for Controlling Laboratories with Fume Hoods”. This patent broadly covers systems and methods where laboratory and fume hood control are integrated with building automation networks.
As a result of the settlement, TSI has been granted a non-exclusive license to the patent which extends to its distribution chain and customers. The settlement agreement was signed by both parties on December 28, 2011.
