  • Publication number: 20220373991
    Abstract: A self-testing automation system includes a decentralized distributed ledger-type database comprising a plurality of subscriber nodes, wherein the subscriber nodes exchange data with one another per transaction, and the database stores the transactions in data blocks which are linked together; a regulating mechanism which is implemented into each of the subscriber nodes, said regulating mechanism comprising information on the number and identity of all of the subscriber nodes as well as rules relating to actions, properties, and states of each of the subscriber nodes; and a plurality of automation components which are subscriber nodes of the decentralized database. Each of the subscriber nodes is designed to test or validate transactions between the subscriber nodes at all times using the regulating mechanism, and each of the subscriber nodes is designed to carry out at least one measure if a violation of the regulating mechanism is detected.

  • Patent number: 11408789
    Abstract: A pressure sensor module, comprising: a pressure measuring cell; and a mounting ring. The pressure measuring cell includes a platform and a measuring membrane, whose front face extends parallel to the rear face of the platform. The mounting ring has a mounting passageway with an inner mounting surface, which defines an inner axial stop plane for mounting the pressure measuring cell, wherein the mounting ring has an outer mounting surface, and the pressure measuring cell is inserted with the rear face preceding into the mounting passageway. The rear face of the platform is adhered with the inner mounting surface, wherein the inner mounting surface has a shoulder, which extends from an inner lateral surface of the mounting ring radially inwards. The mounting surface has between the axial stop surface and the inner lateral surface an annularly surrounding recess, in order to accommodate excess adhesive in the case of the adhering of the axial stop surface with the rear face of the platform.
