  • Patent number: 10265873
    Abstract: A method and a gonioradiometer for the direction-dependent measurement of at least one photometric or radiometric characteristic of an optical radiation source. The emission direction of the photometric or radiometric characteristic is described using a system of planes (A, B, C), the planes of which intersect at an intersection line which passes through the radiation centroid of the radiation source, and using an emission angle (?, ?, ?) which specifies the emission direction (?, ?, ?) within a considered plane. A sensor or the radiation source is fastened to a multi-axis articulated robot. The robot is configured to only swivel about precisely one of its axes during a measuring process, in which measurement values relating to different emission angles (?, ?, ?) within a considered plane of the system of planes (A, B, C) or to different planes at a considered emission angle (?, ?, ?) are detected.

  • Patent number: 9370860
    Abstract: A handle device, in particular for a hand tool, includes a grip unit and a fastening unit. A resiliently elastic damping unit is arranged between the grip unit and the fastening unit. The damping unit is configured to transmit a vibration that occurs on the fastening unit in the operating state of the handle device to the grip unit in an at least partially damped manner so that a user is decoupled at least partially from the vibration. An overload protection unit is configured to protect the damping unit from damage in the event of an overload state occurring on the grip unit or on the fastening unit by diverting at least part of a force flux between the fastening unit and the grip unit to an additional force flux path as a bypass during the overload state.
