  • Patent number: 10770826
    Abstract: A pressure resistant adapter, for connecting a transmission line to a field device has a shell, insertable into a wall of a housing of the field device. The shell has an interior open to an interior of the housing and closed to the exterior by an end wall of the shell. An insert, installed in the shell, includes a base element and a projection protruding out of the shell through an opening in the end wall of the shell. The base element has a basal area greater than a basal area of the opening. A connection element is provided on an end of the projection protruding out from the shell, to which the transmission line is connectable, and at least one conductor extends through a window that is located in the base element adjoining the bore in the projection and opens to the interior of the housing.

  • Patent number: 9225244
    Abstract: A circuit arrangement comprises a voltage regulator coupled to an external voltage supply and a control loop associated with the voltage regulator. The control loop includes an electrical current controller for setting the electrical current value, an analog-digital converter, a reference resistor and a computation/control unit coupled with the voltage regulator and the said analog-digital converter, and the control loop is so embodied that the voltage regulator, as a function of the presently set electrical current value, controls a voltage to an external load connected with the electrical current output. Particularly the computation/control unit is adapted to calculate a voltage to be delivered by the voltage regulator and to operate both, the electrical current controller and the voltage regulator for setting the electrical current value and to operate and for tuning the voltage delivered by the voltage regulator as a function of the presently set electrical current value, respectively.
