  • Patent number: 10690550
    Abstract: A method monitors a line for changed ambient conditions. The line has a measuring line with a predetermined length and a measuring conductor surrounded by insulation having a known dielectric constant. In the method, an analog signal having a predetermined frequency is generated, the signal is divided into a reference signal and an operating signal, the operating signal is fed into the measuring conductor, a return signal obtained from the operating signal is combined with the reference signal and by a phase shift between the reference signal and the return signal, a measure is determined for the changed condition, particularly for a temperature change.

  • Patent number: 10676864
    Abstract: A stranding unit for a stranding machine has a stranding axis and a cage in which a number of baskets are arranged for receiving a number of reels having a strand material wound thereon. The stranding unit is characterized in that a stand is arranged which has a frame which extends around the cage in a circumferential direction around the stranding axis. The cage is mounted on the frame by a number of frame bearing elements and is rotatable around the stranding axis. As a result of the circumferential bearing, centrifugal forces are particularly efficiently distributed and absorbed by the frame during operation. In an advantageous further development, a plurality of basket are also mounted in a similar manner within the frame. The stranding unit as a whole is furthermore constructed such that it can be operated at a particularly high rotational speed.

  • Patent number: 10566113
    Abstract: A cable has a wire bundle composed of a number of individual wires and an insulating sheath. The wire bundle is guided along a longitudinal center axis by a shaping element in order to guide and to specify the cross-sectional shape of the wire bundle in a feeding region immediately upstream of an extruder. The shaping element rotates about the longitudinal center axis, and the insulating sheath is subsequently applied to the wire bundle by the extruder.

  • Patent number: 10493854
    Abstract: A charging cable for an electric or hybrid vehicle has a charging line with a number of conductors for conducting a charging current of at least 2 A. An outer sheath surrounds the conductors and a plug can be attached at an end side for connecting the charging line to a current source or to the vehicle. The charging cable has at least one display area on the outer sheath for displaying an operational state. A passive function element is integrated, which extends along the charging cable, which has a coupling point for light at the end side, and which is designed for guiding the light along the charging cable and for scattering the light in a radial direction. A charging system has such a charging cable for connecting a charging station with a vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10438724
    Abstract: A data cable for high-speed data transmission at signal frequencies of >10 GHz includes at least one core pair which is surrounded by a film-shaped pair shield having an inner shielding film and an outer shielding film which, are in electrical contact with one another and in which the inner shielding film is wound around the core pair. By virtue of this measure, an undesired resonance effect is avoided which, in previously wound pair shields, has not allowed use for relatively high signal frequencies. At the same time, an undesired common-mode signal, which would occur in the case of a longitudinally folded shielding film, is thus suppressed.

  • Patent number: 10436995
    Abstract: A cable, which extends in a longitudinal direction, has a cable core and a cable jacket. The cable jacket is extruded around the cable core. The cable is distinguished by the fact that the cable jacket has a plurality of chambers and, overall, is designed, in particular, in the manner of a hollow profile, and by the fact that a functional material different from the material of the cable jacket is introduced within at least one of the chambers. The functional material is preferably a flame proofing agent, but numerous other materials and, in general, functional elements are also conceivable. We further describe a method for producing the cable.

  • Publication number: 20190298276
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a robot, for example for patient positioning, comprising a robot arm with a plurality of robot elements, which are connected to one another by means of shaft units. The shaft units define a respective at least one movement axis of the robot arm. The robot arm comprises a first end region, which permits an arrangement in a surrounding area of the robot, and a second end region, on which an end effector can be arranged. A first shaft unit arranged after the first end region defines a first rotational axis of the robot arm. The robot arm can be arranged in the surrounding area by means of the first end region in such a way that the first rotational axis runs at an angle transverse to the surrounding area.
