Abstract: The on-board network for motor vehicles contains a multiplex control for switching, controlling and monitoring electrical end devices such as switches, operating and indicating elements, sensors and actuators and consists of several bus interfaces (2) coupled to a common bus line (1). The network also includes control devices (4) associated in star configuration via signal lines with the bus interfaces and end devices associated with the control devices. The control devices (4) contain signal converters and a data processor as well as transmitters/receivers for exchanging data signals with the corresponding bus interface. The operation of the on-board network is accomplished in such a manner that the transmission of the data signals from one bus interface to the associated control devices is controlled by the bus interface and follows cyclically the respective control device in the sequence of the groups of inputs and outputs.

Abstract: An arrangement for intermittent feeding of cable coils cut by means of a cutting arrangement, with the aid of ring laying apparatus onto a rotary conveyor wherein there are several separately driven conveyor bands each of which is fed at a different period of time with severed cable coils by a transfer unit, the transfer unit being disposed between a discharge conveyor and the separately positioned conveyor bands, the discharge conveyor in turn being constantly fed with cable coil from a ring laying unit which ring laying unit is variable and in the ring laying direction and is movable toward and away from the transfer unit during operation.
