  • Patent number: 10971847
    Abstract: A disconnect terminal includes an enclosure, a first conductor rail, a second conductor rail, a switching device, and an actuation device. The switching device can be switched by the actuation device from a connecting position, in which the first conductor rail and the second conductor rail are electrically connected by the switching device into a disconnecting position in which the electrical connection of the first conductor rail and the second conductor rail is separated or disconnected, and back. A visible portion of the actuation device aligns with a surface of a portion of an upper side of the enclosure or with a part connected with the enclosure. In the disconnecting position, the visible portion of the actuation device protrudes from a surface of a portion of an upper side of the enclosure or of a part connected with the enclosure in a clearly visible manner. An assembly is provided of at least two aligned disconnect terminals.

  • Publication number: 20200064306
    Abstract: An electrochemical sensor (1, 101) has a sensor element (15, 115) with a measuring surface (8, 108) that faces a measuring medium (5) during use. The sensor element has a planar measuring element (2, 102). A sensor shaft (4, 104) has an aperture (13, 113) with a bezel (11, 111) at an end which, during use, faces the measuring medium. The sensor element is installed in the area of the aperture. The electrochemical sensor also has an annular sealing element (9, 109), which is arranged between the sensor element and the bezel. An insulator element (10, 110) is firmly and inseparably connected to the measuring element, exposing or recessing the measuring surface. Thus, the sealing element, which protects the electrochemical sensor against the ingress of measuring medium, is arranged sealingly between the insulator element and the bezel.

  • Patent number: 10464093
    Abstract: An apparatus has first and second coating nozzles for applying a liquid coating material respectively to two sides of a running flat material web, and has first and second rigid supply line sections for supplying the coating material to the respective coating nozzles. At least one of the coating nozzles is transferable from a working position to a maintenance position and back. In the working position, throughflow channels in the supply line sections communicate with one another to provide a throughflow of the coating material to the coating nozzles. When transferring at least one of the coating nozzles from the working position to the maintenance position, the rigid supply line sections are automatically moved relative to one another so that the throughflow channels therein are interrupted so as to interrupt the flow of the coating material to this coating nozzle.

  • Patent number: 9972922
    Abstract: A connection terminal for connecting an electrical device to a continuous electrical conductor such as a ground conductor includes a connector body with at least one terminal connection. Each terminal connection includes a recess which extends in a direction of extension of the electrical conductor and a holding device to at least partially close the recess. The holding device is adjustable relative to the direction of extension of the electrical conductor from an open position in which the electrical conductor can be inserted into the recess to a closed position in which the holding device holds the electrical conductor in the recess. The holding device is either reversibly rotatable in a direction of rotation around an axis which extends in the direction of extension or reversibly displaceable in a sliding direction which extends transverse to the direction of extension.
