  • Publication number: 20200340378
    Abstract: A method for operating an internal combustion engine wherein the internal combustion engine to be operated is supplied with lubricating oil via an oil circuit. A measurement value of a total base number and/or a measurement value of the viscosity of the lubricating oil currently used in the oil circuit for the lubrication is detected. Dependent on the established measurement value of the total base number and/or dependent on the established measurement value of the viscosity an exchange oil quantity for the oil circuit is determined. Currently used lubricating oil to an extent corresponding to the exchange oil quantity is removed from the oil circuit. New lubricating oil to an extent corresponding to the exchange oil quantity is supplied to the oil circuit.

  • Publication number: 20200284673
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for measuring the electrode force on welding tongs. The welding tongs have a first electrode arm with a first electrode and a second electrode arm with a second electrode, said second electrode arm lying opposite the first electrode arm. At least one workpiece is clamped between the electrodes during the welding process. The aim of the invention is to provide a method for measuring the electrode force, said method providing an improved signal quality. The method has the following steps: a) measuring a first force acting on the first electrode, b) measuring a second force acting on the second electrode, and c) adding the measured first force and the measured second force, wherein an electrode force signal transmitted from the welding point to the electrodes is amplified, and an interference force signal introduced into the at least one workpiece from the outside and transmitted to the electrodes is eliminated.

  • Patent number: 10504313
    Abstract: A method is disclosed in which a challenge from a locker system is transmitted to a mobile device. A response is received from the mobile device at the locker system, and the response was generated by a backend system, which received the challenge from the mobile device, at least based on the challenge received by the backend system and on a first key stored at the backend system and has been transmitted to the mobile device. At the locker system, it is checked whether the received response was generated under usage of at least the challenge and a key that corresponds to a second key stored at the locker system. Access is granted to a compartment of the locker system at least depending on a result of the checking.

  • Patent number: 10457972
    Abstract: The invention relates to a mass spectrometric method for determining microbial resistances to antibiotics. The invention provides specific methods comprising cultivation in synthetic media, in which several amino acids, preferably only a single amino acid, are isotopically labeled by incorporating 13C, 15N, 18O or 34S. If several amino acids are isotopically labeled, they are labeled in such a way that they are each heavier than the corresponding unlabeled amino acids by the same integer mass difference ?m. This ensures that the mass shifts of the peaks always amount to an integer multiple of the mass difference ?m. The total mass difference can be kept relatively small by selecting suitable amino acids. A mass shift of the protein peaks in media with antibiotics indicates that the microbes are resistant. A second embodiment first produces isotopically labeled microbes, which are then tested for their resistance by cultivating them in normal media.

  • Patent number: 10343883
    Abstract: A lifting device of an industrial truck includes a load handling arrangement that is raised and lowered on a lifting frame and a hydraulic lift cylinder device that is actuated by an electrically actuatable control valve device, in which an electronic control device is provided to actuate the control valve device. The electronic control device has an automated set-down mode actuated during a lowering of the load handling arrangement. The load is lowered at a lowering speed specified by a deflection of a control element to the designated surface. As the control element continues to be deflected into the lowering position, the lowering of the load handling arrangement is terminated by the electronic control device by actuating the control valve device into a shut-off position to prevent the load handling arrangement from being set down on the designated surface.

  • Publication number: 20180312897
    Abstract: The invention relates to a mass-spectrometric method to determine microbial resistances to antibiotics, in which the microbes are cultured in a medium comprising an antibiotic, and a mass spectrum of the microbes is acquired after they have been cultured. The method is characterized by the fact that any microbial growth taking place during the culture is mass-spectrometrically determined with the aid of a reference substance, which is added in a dosed amount and is co-measured in the mass spectrum, wherein a growth in microbes indicates the resistance to the antibiotic.
