  • Publication number: 20240125384
    Abstract: Disclosed is a torque-converting or speed-converting variable-speed transmission with at least two gear ratios. Each gear ratios is assigned at least one changeable gear pair. Shifting elements act on sliding sleeves (24) connected to the gear pairs to change these gear pairs. The shifting elements are in engagement with a shift drum (10), which is moveable into defined angular positions and rotatable between these angular positions. The shift drum (10) has an electric-motor direct drive (12), which can rotate it and bring it into the particular defined angular positions. A method used to control such a torque-converting or speed-converting variable-speed transmission is also contemplated.

  • Patent number: 9116115
    Abstract: An apparatus for determining the homogeneity of a fluid flow in a pipe, such as a reducing-agent flow in an exhaust-gas pipe of an internal combustion engine, including a transmitter arranged on a light-transmissive region of the pipe and a diametrically opposite detector. The transmitter and detector being coupled such that they are rotatable through an angle of 360° about a rotational axis which is located substantially in the axis of symmetry of the pipe. The transmitter and the detector are rotated through at least 360° about the rotational axis, thus capturing an intensity of the detected light over the rotation angle, and from this a homogeneity of the fluid flow is deduced.
