Abstract: A venting outlet (1) for a drinking water supply system of an aircraft is proposed, having an inlet opening (3) which is arranged on a rear side of the venting outlet and is intended for receiving a venting fluid, in particular air, from the drinking water supply system, and further having a venting opening (6) arranged on a front side of the venting outlet and intended for discharging at least some of the received venting fluid to an external surroundings of the venting outlet (1).
Abstract: The invention relates to a monitoring system (1) for an aircraft for monitoring mobile accessory devices (2) in the aircraft, in particular rolling containers for an on-board kitchen of the aircraft, comprising at least one stationary sensor device (3) for detecting one of the mobile accessory devices (2) and comprising a central unit (10) for evaluating a current security state of the mobile accessory devices (2) based on detection results (DS) of the at least one stationary sensor device (3) reported to the central unit (10). The monitoring system (1) also comprises at least one mobile sensor device (4) for detecting any accessory device (2) of the mobile accessory devices moving relative to the mobile sensor device (4) within a predetermined distance (E), and for reporting a respective detection result (DM) to the central unit (10).

Abstract: A trolley arrangement for a galley of an aircraft has a trolley container in which at least two trolleys can be arranged in a longitudinal direction and a trolley-handling device for pulling and pushing a trolley longitudinally into the trolley container. This device has a linear guide with a stationary guiding bar and a slide movable along the guiding bar longitudinally, a pulling and pushing bar extending along a longitudinal axis, axially fixed on the slide, but rotatable about the longitudinal axis, a hook at a distal end of the pulling and pushing bar remote from the slide, a handling bar axially fixed on the slide or on the pulling and pushing bar, and a joint between the handling bar and the slide or the pulling and pushing bar, so that the handling bar and the pulling and pushing bar are axially connected and are rotationally coupled.
Abstract: The invention relates to a trolley arrangement (1) of a galley of a vehicle, especially of an aircraft, wherein the trolley arrangement (1) comprises a trolley container (2) in which at least two trolleys (3, 4) can be arranged along a longitudinal direction (L), wherein the trolley arrangement (1) furthermore comprises a trolley handling device (5) for pulling and pushing a trolley (3, 4) into the trolley container (2) in the longitudinal direction (L).
Abstract: The invention relates to a modular on-board galley, in particular an aircraft galley (11), and a method of assembling such a galley that comprises, as utility zones, a base and at least one attachment element divided into compartments for accommodating drawers and devices, the compartments being designed with mechanical connectors for interconnecting the elements and with inserts or devices as well as electrical and electronic device connectors and device supply lines. Such a modular on-board galley that not only offers a variable structure but also enables the galley to be completely assembled in a simple manner with preassembled space-saving block- and housing-like attachments and superstructures that are nevertheless compact with regard to their dimensions, in particular in an aircraft that is fully equipped with seats, cabinets and on-board toilets, without these installed components having to be removed beforehand, is to be created.
Abstract: A latch for a pivotal door has a respective pair of bolts on each of two opposite edges of the doors. The bolts are independently movable between latching positions projecting from the respective door edge and freeing positions at least partially recessed in the respective door edge, respective rods having outer ends connected to the bolts and inner ends. Respective actuating elements each connected to two of the inner ends are independently operable to shift the respective bolts between the respective latching and freeing positions. Respective adjacent handles coupled to the actuating are both shiftable independently of each other in generally the same direction between an unactuated position with the respective element setting the respective bolts in the latching positions and an actuated position setting with the respective element setting the respective bolts in the freeing positions.
Abstract: To make the passenger seat for the airplane as light as possible while satisfying safety requirements, some or all the essential components are made with a sandwich-like structure, especially from sandwich panels. These sandwich panels can be made from a plurality of covering layers with a light but strong supporting core (e.g. with a honeycomb structure) interposed between pairs of covering layers.
