  • Patent number: 10289147
    Abstract: A manual control device for a control and operating unit of a lifting work platform, work machine or construction machine has at least one actuating unit which has an actuation element having at least one magnetic position element, and an evaluating unit having at least one magnetic field sensor unit. The evaluating unit is configured to detect a position and/or movement of the actuation element in a plane of movement based on a sensor signal from the magnetic field sensor unit. The actuation element is movable relative to the sensor unit along a further direction of movement perpendicularly to the plane of movement, wherein the evaluating unit is configured to detect a movement of the actuation element along the further direction of movement based on a sensor signal from the magnetic field sensor unit.

  • Patent number: 10184838
    Abstract: A device for determining the temperature of a road building material applied by a construction machine in a placement width includes an infrared temperature measuring head, a motor and a controller. The infrared temperature measuring head is arranged to be twistable by the motor in a manner transverse to the direction of travel of the construction machine so as to scan the surface of the road building material to capture temperature measuring values of the surface of road building material during a rotational movement at a plurality of measuring points spaced apart from one another. The controller is configured to set a scanning speed as a function of a position of the measuring point.

  • Patent number: 7760369
    Abstract: An apparatus for determining an elevation of a working tool relative to a reference plane, includes a rotary laser system, a radio unit and a detector. The rotary laser system emits a rotating laser beam in a plane inclined relative to the reference plane. The radio unit is configured to measure a distance between the working tool and the rotary laser system and the detector is mounted on the working tool for detecting the laser beam. The elevation of the working tool can be determined on a basis of the inclination angle and the distance between the working tool and the rotary laser system.
