  • Patent number: 11378565
    Abstract: A method for in-ova fertilisation determination and gender determination on a closed egg. The aim is to specify a method for the in-ovo fertilisation determination and gender determination on a closed egg. This aim is achieved by a method in which a closed egg is positioned, candled and/or illuminated, next an image of the closed egg is recorded, then the captured data are evaluated and the position of the cardiovascular system located in the egg is calculated. A detection unit is adjusted via the calculated position of the cardiovascular system by means of a positioning unit and subsequently the blood is stimulated, then the blood-specific and blood-foreign absorption spectra are detected and selected, the fertilisation is ascertained and then the spectra containing blood-foreign information are compensated by a compensation method and the spectra are classified for sex determination.

  • Patent number: 11016056
    Abstract: A device (1) for determining a measured variable, that allows an as simple as possible adaptation to the measurement conditions, is achieved in that the device (1) has a sensor unit (2) and a transmitter (3). The sensor unit (2) generates an electric primary signal in dependence on the measured variable, and communicates the primary signal via an analog output interface (4) to the transmitter (3) which processes the primary signal. Furthermore, the sensor unit (2) and transmitter (3) are advantageous by themselves, and the sensor unit (2) preferably allows for offline calibration under constant surrounding conditions.

  • Patent number: 10851531
    Abstract: A drain fitting for a toilet cistern including a drain valve, which is constructed from a discharge nozzle mounted on the cistern and a lift-adjustable overflow tube, which closes a flow passage through the discharge nozzle in its closed position, and having a pneumatic actuator, with the aid of which, upon the application of pressure, the overflow tube is adjustable into its open position, in which a quantity of flush water is able to flow out of the discharge nozzle of the toilet cistern. An underpressure may be applied to the pneumatic actuator to lift-adjust the overflow tube into its open position. The drain fitting includes an, in particular water-conducting, underpressure unit, which is connected to the pneumatic actuator and generates an underpressure acting upon the pneumatic actuator upon activation by the user.

  • Patent number: 10648578
    Abstract: A sanitary fitting with a fitting body with a hollow cylindrical mixing shaft chamber in which a mixing shaft is rotatably supported about an axis of rotation. A hot and cold water inlet and a mixed water outlet open into the hollow cylindrical mixing shaft chamber, and wherein the mixing shaft has a control contour on the outer circumference which delimits a mixing chamber, which as a function of the rotational position of the mixing shaft fluidically connects the hot water inlet and/or the cold water inlet to the mixed water outlet in order to adjust a mixed water temperature. The mixing chamber of the mixing shaft is fluidically decoupled from the hot water or cold water inlet port while forming a fluid-tight valve gap between a sealing surface of the control contour of the mixing shaft and the inner peripheral wall of the hollow cylindrical mixing shaft chamber.
