  • Publication number: 20210021062
    Abstract: Abstract A method for implementing wiring on a matrix of conductor connection devices such as terminal conductor connection devices for connection of the ends of a conductor to at least one series terminal block uses at least one luminous element to identify conductor connection devices which are illuminated in the matrix directly or indirectly in accordance with a wiring diagram. The conductor connection devices that are illuminated by the luminous element and that are to be interconnected are connected to conductors, the ends of which are inserted in the conductor connection devices to establish a respective conducting wiring connection.

  • Patent number: 8827053
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a self-amplifying electromechanical partial lining disc brake, having a ramp mechanism as a self-amplification device. According to the invention, a rack for driving a friction brake pad is situated between roller elements of the ramp mechanism, particularly at a geometrical centroid of an imaginary surface defined by the roller elements. As a result a load is distributed to the roller elements in a more uniform fashion and the pressing force of the friction brake pad against a brake disc when the partial lining disc brake is actuated is distributed more uniformly and counteracts irregular pad wear.

  • Patent number: 8020675
    Abstract: The invention relates to an electromechanical disk brake which has a switchable freewheel in order to be configured as a parking brake. The switchable freewheel includes a clamping roller freewheel having rollers for locking a motor shaft of an electric motor of the brake. A locating bearing of the motor shaft of an electric motor, and the freewheel are accommodated on a cover of a housing of the electric motor, and all the electric connections of the disc brake are routed via the cover. The number of components used can be reduced considerably by the integrated design. Moreover, the positional tolerances of the freewheel in relation to the motor shaft can be reduced with the aid of the invention.

  • Patent number: 8002088
    Abstract: A self-boosting electromechanical friction brake for a motor vehicle in which, with an electromechanical actuator, a friction brake lining can be pressed against a brake disk, and the friction brake lining is braced in the brake caliper via a wedge mechanism, which effects a self boosting. A friction brake lining which is pressed by the actuator has with a lower coefficient of friction, and in particular with less relative fluctuation in the coefficient of friction, than another friction brake lining positioned fixedly in the brake caliper. An operation-dictated fluctuation in the coefficient of friction and thus a change in the self boosting is reduced, and as a result the disk brake, with a low coefficient of friction, can be actuated with less actuation force and less actuation energy.

  • Patent number: 7735613
    Abstract: A self-boosting electromechanical friction brake, having a friction brake lining which is displaceable for actuation in the direction of rotation of a brake disk and which is braced via roller bodies on ramps of an abutment plate. When the brake is actuated, brake disk exerts a frictional force on the brake lining pressed against it, which urges the lining in the direction of an increasingly narrow gap between the ramps and the brake disk to exert a contact pressure that is in addition to that exerted by an actuation device to attain self-boosting. The roller bodies are supported fixedly and rotatably in bearing block on the brake lining whereby the roller bodies move in slaved fashion with the brake lining and always brace the brake lining at the same points.
