Abstract: A method and an electronic device for compensation of the hysteresis of a pneumatically driven fitting having an electropneumatic valve. The electropneumatic valve is driven by a position regulator and is used in a closed control loop for position regulation of a switching element of an pneumatic actuating drive for operation of the fitting. Hysteresis of the pneumatically driven fitting is compensated for by the position regulator via at least one hysteresis correction factor. The control-engineering compensation for the hysteresis is carried out separately for a first basic case of starting or reversing a switching element and for a second basic case of continuous movement of the switching element, such that a dominant static friction is compensated for in the first basic case and the dominant sliding friction is compensated for in the second basic case, and the pneumatic actuating drive operates the switching element matched thereto.

Abstract: A pole part of a switchgear assembly having a vacuum interrupter chamber is provided. To ensure that heat is dissipated to the exterior for convection, a thermally conductive heat transmission element in the form of a cylindrical casing is provided between the vacuum interrupter chamber, a contact holder and an encapsulation casing. An inner surface of the heat transmission element rests on the vacuum interrupter chamber and the contact holder, and an outer surface of the heat transmission element rests on an inner surface of the encapsulation casing inner surface. The heat transmission element can be produced from a thermally conductive plastic using an injection-molding or molding-compound production process. The heat transmission element can be connected to the pole part through openings. The heat transmission element can be arranged before the encapsulation of with an encapsulation compound, and be cast in the encapsulation casing.
Abstract: A guide wire includes a first wire disposed on the distal side of the guide wire and a second wire disposed on the proximal side. The second wire has an elastic modulus larger than the first wire. The first wire is joined to the second wire at a welded portion by welding. A coil is disposed on the distal side of the first wire. A cover layer is formed on the outer peripheral surface of the wire member in such a manner as to cover at least the welded portion. The cover layer is made from a material capable of reducing the friction of the cover layer, for example, a fluorocarbon resin or a hydrophilic material, to thereby improve the sliding performance of the guide wire. Such a guide wire is excellent in operationality and kink resistance.
