  • Patent number: 10225171
    Abstract: A method is provided for assigning a time stamp to a specific data packet which, as with a group of received data packets, is received by a cyclically operating sensor. The specific data packet is especially part of the group of received data packets. The disclosed method includes: determining the time of arrival of each data packet of the group of received data packets; assigning a time stamp to each data packet of the group of data packets; determining the time difference between the determined time of arrival and the assigned time stamp for each data packet of the group of data packets; determining the smallest time difference from among the determined time differences; and assigning a time stamp to the specific data packet on the basis of the time of arrival determined for the data packet for which the smallest time difference has been determined.

  • Publication number: 20180361777
    Abstract: A security element for securing security papers, value documents and other data carriers, having a lenticular image that, from different viewing directions, displays at least two different appearances. The lenticular image includes a lens grid composed of a plurality of microlenses and a radiation-sensitive motif layer arranged spaced apart from the lens grid. The radiation-sensitive motif layer includes, produced by the action of radiation, a plurality of transparency regions that are each arranged in perfect register with the microlenses of the lens grid. Outside the transparency regions produced by the action of radiation, the radiation-sensitive motif layer is opaque and patterned in the form of a first motif such that, when the security element is viewed through the lens grid from a first viewing direction, the first motif is visible as the first appearance.

  • Patent number: 10091751
    Abstract: A mobile unit as well as a method for time-stamping a first message of the first mobile unit to a second mobile unit are provided. The method includes the steps of: determining a roundtrip time between the first mobile unit and a base station, receiving the first message sent by the first mobile unit in the base station, adding a timestamp to the first message in the base station while taking into account the roundtrip time, and sending the time-stamped first message to the second mobile unit.

  • Patent number: 10046585
    Abstract: A micro-optical inspection arrangement comprises micro-focusing elements which are composite bodies consisting of a main part and an additional part and which have a reference focal length. The main parts are provided as micro-focusing element preforms, and the additional parts are formed from one or more functional coatings. The invention also relates to a method for producing such a micro-optical inspection arrangement and to a micro-optical displaying arrangement comprising the micro-optical inspection arrangement according to the invention and a microstructure arrangement, in particular a moiré magnification arrangement and a modulo magnification arrangement. The invention also relates to security elements and data carriers that have the micro-optical inspection arrangement according to the invention.

  • Patent number: 9911074
    Abstract: The invention concerns a security element having a magnetic coding consisting of magnetic coding elements. At least one of the magnetic coding elements has a grid-shaped magnetic region which is formed by a plurality of mutually parallel grid strips made of magnetic material which respectively have a magnetic anisotropy. The grid strips lead, through their magnetic anisotropy, to the magnetization direction of the coding element being able to differ from the direction of the applied magnetic field. Since the resultant magnetic signals that the grid-shaped magnetic regions deliver cannot be simulated by conventional magnetic regions, said coding elements increase the anti-forgery security of the security element.

  • Patent number: 9757705
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for production of concentrates of water-soluble active agents, wherein, in a waterless method using solid active agents as starting materials, the crystals of an active agent are uniformly distributed in a first organic solvent to which a dispersing agent is added, the viscosity of the solution thus obtained is adjusted as applicable by a suitable auxiliary agent, a polymer creator is added to the solution thus obtained, in a second organic solvent as applicable, wherein the viscosity of either the solution to be added or the solution to be obtained is adjusted by the addition of a suitable auxiliary agent, and a crosslinking agent having at least two functional groups in a third organic solvent is given to the obtained solution, wherein the viscosity of either the added or obtained solution is in turn adjusted by the addition of a suitable auxiliary agent and the polymer creator is selected from the group comprising low-viscosity polymethylene-polyphenylisocyanate, preferabl

  • Patent number: 9734735
    Abstract: An optically variable surface pattern is made available, having at least two partial areas with reflection elements, wherein the reflection elements of the first partial region on the one hand and the reflection elements of the second partial region on the other hand reflect impinging light in different reflection directions. The first partial region is so covered with a first glazing ink layer that a viewer, upon a change of the viewing angle at which the viewer views the optically variable surface pattern, sees the first partial region glow in a first color upon reaching a first viewing angle. The second partial region glows in a second color that is different from the first color upon reaching a second viewing angle.

  • Patent number: 9176266
    Abstract: A security element for a security paper, value document or the like, having a carrier which has a reflective areal region which is divided into a multiplicity of reflective pixels. The area of each pixel is smaller than the area of the reflective areal region by at least one order of magnitude. Each pixel has at least one reflective facet which is formed in a surface of the carrier, and the at least one reflective facet reflects light incident along a predetermined direction on the areal region directionally in a reflection direction predefined by the orientation of the facet. The orientations of the facets of different pixels have a substantially random variation over the reflective areal region.
