  • Patent number: 10808911
    Abstract: A luminaire comprising: a light source in the form of at least one LED and a reflector, wherein a peripheral edge of the reflector defines a light exit opening on a side opposite the light source, wherein arranged in the light exit opening is a planar translucent cover wherein microstructures configured to direct and/or scatter light are distributed over the planar translucent cover. The planar translucent cover extends inwards in the direction of the light source, relative to an imaginary plane defined by the peripheral edge of the reflector.

  • Patent number: 8754437
    Abstract: The invention relates to an LED module (1) comprising at least one light-emitting diode (LED) (3) and at least one heat sink (2) for active cooling, having at least one coolant channel (6) through which a cooling fluid flows. The dimensions of the at least one coolant channel (6) are selected so that a predominantly laminar flow of the fluid is set up in the at least one coolant channel (5) during operation of the LED module (1).

  • Patent number: 7950891
    Abstract: A method for loading and unloading rail cars includes at least one car, having a frame and a superstructure, moved into loading and unloading positions. During unloading the car superstructure is lifted off from the frame with lifting devices to an unloading level, and after the lifting operation the superstructure is moved at the unloading level in a transverse direction with respect to a longitudinal plane of the car until the superstructure is seated completely on a loading and unloading face. During loading the superstructure is moved from the loading and unloading face in a transverse direction with respect to the longitudinal plane of the car to above the frame and the superstructure is lowered, by lifting devices, onto the frame located in the loading and unloading positions. The lifting and lowering of the superstructures is carried out by lifting devices that are anchored to the track bed or secured to a platform.

  • Patent number: 7049769
    Abstract: It is intended to be possible to use a respective setting apparatus (E1, E2) to set the color and the brightness of an illumination device separately. Light sources having three different colors are operated for this purpose. Only one first power supply (CON, PWM1) is provided for two colors, whereas the third color is supplied by a second power supply (CON, PWM2). The brightness can be set by altering the power output of the first (CON, PWM1) and the second (CON, PWM2) power supplies at the same time. The color can be set by altering the power output of the second (CON, PWM2) power supply.

  • Patent number: 6135524
    Abstract: The invention furnishes a stilting frame for the transport of containers by means of transhipment equipment, with the stilting frame being designed in such a way that in total four combined positions between the latch bolts of the transhipment equipment and the latch bolts of the stilting frame may be obtained from both switching positions of the latch bolts of the transhipment equipment. The stilting frame may thus be operated in a fully automatic manner and the operator may easily determine whether only the stilting frame is joined to the transhipment equipment, whether the container is also joined to the stilting frame, or whether or not all three elements are joined to each other.
