  • Patent number: 10347957
    Abstract: A hollow conductor system is described which comprises at least two hollow conductor bundles and at least two connecting members. Each hollow conductor bundle comprises at least two hollow conductors separated by each other via a common intermediate wall. Each connecting member connects one hollow conductor of one hollow conductor bundle with a corresponding hollow conductor of the other hollow conductor bundle such that a void is provided between the connecting member and the adjacent connecting member and/or an adjacent hollow conductor. Further, a method for assembling a hollow conductor system is described.

  • Patent number: 10193202
    Abstract: A switch comprises a first strip conductor and a second strip conductor, arranged orthogonally in a first plane. Moreover, the switch comprises a first switching conductor, having an orthogonally angled shape relative to the first plane. The switch comprises a switching actuator, which is mechanically connected to the first switching conductor and adapted to move vertically relative to the first plane to a first position and to a second position. The switching actuator is configured, so that in the first position, the first strip conductor is in contact with the first switching conductor and the second strip conductor is in contact with the first switching conductor, and so that in the second position, the first strip conductor and the second strip conductor are not in contact with the first switching conductor.

  • Patent number: 9914347
    Abstract: A mounting device is provided for oscillatingly mounting a range extender, which consists of an internal combustion engine and a generator, on a body and/or a chassis of a motor vehicle by way of vibration-damping elements. At least two of the vibration-damping elements are integrated in load-carrying bearings and one additional one is integrated in a supporting bearing for supporting moments. The mounting device is characterized in that the vibration-damping elements of the mounting device at least for the load-carrying bearings are secured to the range extender, i.e. a first vibration-damping element is secured to the internal combustion engine and a second vibration-damping element is secured to the generator.

  • Patent number: 9793067
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a contact unit for changing over between winding taps on a control winding of a tapped transformer. Such a contact unit can be used particularly preferably for electrical switchgear in high-voltage engineering, such as selector switches or changeover switches. A common feature of both kinds of device in this case is that the changeover between the winding taps on the control winding of the tapped transformer is accomplished without load current. The general inventive concept is to include the contact element of the contact unit in a separate contact housing, so that the contact element and the contact housing form a separate assembly and so that the contact housing, including the contact element, can be fixed in a recess provided in the contact mounting by means of a retaining element.

  • Patent number: 9570248
    Abstract: The invention relates to a linear selector (1) for power-free preselection of tap contacts for a tapped transformer (100). The linear selector (1) according to the invention is cost-effective, simple and compactly constructed. The functions of a selector and a reverser are thus better connected. The linear selector (1) is constructed from a fine selector (2) and a reversing switch (3). The fine selector (2) and the reversing switch (3) are directly driven via a common gear unit (6).

  • Patent number: 9187051
    Abstract: A method and a device for detecting an imminent rollover of a vehicle. The method comprises taking a series of images of the surroundings of the vehicle, in particular of the road ahead, with a camera; determining and tracking point features in the series of images; eliminating point features which are located on objects that move relative to the stationary surroundings of the vehicle; and computing at least one parameter of the rotational movement of the camera (roll, pitch and/or yaw rate) taking into account the remaining point features.
