  • Publication number: 20200002003
    Abstract: A connection system for electrically connecting a fixture in a vehicle has at least one cable, and a housing with a cable inlet and a cable outlet, and with a receiving space which is formed in the housing and extends helically along a housing axis with a receiving space cross section from the cable inlet towards the cable outlet. The cable has a cable cross section and runs completely through the receiving space from the cable inlet towards the cable outlet, with cable coils being formed. A radial extent of the cable cross section is smaller than a radial extent of the receiving space cross section. Therefore, different lengths of the at least one cable can be accommodated in the receiving space with different coil diameters being formed.

  • Patent number: 10506748
    Abstract: A corona shielding system for an electric machine, for example a high-voltage machine, such as a generator, for generating electrical energy, an electric motor or else other electric operating means having a relatively high rated voltage, such as transformers, bushings, cables, etc, is disclosed. The corona shielding system may include a filler mixture including both planar and spherical particles. Therefore, the electrical conductivity, which is good in the presence of only planar particles in two spatial directions but is very poor in the third, can be adjusted anisotropically in a targeted manner.

  • Patent number: 10450073
    Abstract: A seat track cover for a passenger seat of an aircraft is positionable on a seat track. The seat track cover is mechanically coupled at a first end to a seat leg structure of the passenger seat via a pivot joint. The seat track cover is arranged substantially parallel to the seat track and takes up a covering position which covers a seat track located therebeneath when the passenger seat is in its working position. The seat track cover takes up a stowed position in a second state, wherein, in the stowed position, the seat track cover is pivotable out of the parallel plane with respect to the seat track via a pivoting movement about the pivot of the pivot joint. The transition from the covering position to the stowed position takes place via the pivoting movement about the first end of the seat track cover.

  • Publication number: 20190308670
    Abstract: A rail system for a cabin of the vehicle comprises a rail with a main extension direction, a fixing element which can be fixed at various positions of the rail to hold a mounting element on the rail, and a cover device for covering the rail. The cover device has several planar cover elements arranged in continuous series extending along the rail, wherein the cover elements are each mounted so as to be pivotable between a closed state in which the respective cover element lies on the rail and an open state in which the respective cover element is removed from the rail. The fixing element has an engagement element which is configured, on displacement of the fixing element along the rail, to reach below a cover element and move the cover element from the closed state to the open state.

  • Publication number: 20190185396
    Abstract: A process for preparing methanol by a methanol synthesis reaction of carbon dioxide with hydrogen may involve a distillation step and a condensation step following the synthesis of a crude methanol. A volatile component and water may be separated off from a methanol-containing product stream, and a gas stream containing a volatile component that has been separated off may be discharged at least partially as offgas. At least part of the gas stream that has been separated off may be recirculated into the methanol synthesis reaction. A plant for preparing methanol can store or utilize electric power generated from renewable energy sources and provide facilities for discharging the offgas stream, which can be purified by catalytic after-combustion. Alternatively, the plant can be configured without discharge of an offgas substream, or the offgas streams are so small that they can be released without treatment into the environment at a suitable position.
