  • Patent number: 7557688
    Abstract: A pyromechanical disconnecting device that includes a housing having a receiving space for an ignition element and a supporting floor. A disconnecting tool is disposed in the housing and movable along a path toward a disconnecting point of a current conductor rail. Also disposed in the housing is an ignition element adapted to propel the disconnecting tool along the path to sever the current conductor rail. The ignition element includes an end having a conical flank facing the supporting floor of the housing. An elastic sealing element is arranged about the conical flank and the supporting floor to act as an axial tolerance compensator between the ignition element and the supporting floor of the housing.

  • Patent number: 7511600
    Abstract: A pyromechanical disconnecting device having an improved electric current conductor rail. The electric current conductor rail includes a center section perpendicular to the path of a disconnecting tool, and a first and second side section extending perpendicular from the center section. The electric current conductor rail further includes a first and second end piece connected respectively to the first and second side sections apart from the center section. Each of the end pieces is connected along a fold perpendicular to the center section and includes a bore for receiving a fastener to attach the electric current conductor rail to a housing.

  • Publication number: 20070069846
    Abstract: The invention relates to a pyromechanical disconnecting device, especially for disconnecting the battery in a motor vehicle. Said device comprises a housing (1) in which a current conductor rail is arranged, said rail being configured in such a way that it can be disconnected by a slitting chisel (6) in a disconnecting point, wherein the slitting chisel (6) can be accelerated by the propelling gases of an ignition element (5) and the ignition element (5) has electrical connecting pins (9). Said ignition element is arranged in the locating area (7) in the housing (1) and is supported on a support bottom (2) of said locating area (7). The support bottom (2) has passage holes (3) for the connecting pins (9). In order to provide easy and safe installation of the ignition element in the disconnecting device, an elastic sealing element (4) is arranged between the ignition element (5) and the support bottom (2).

  • Patent number: 7182012
    Abstract: A pyrotechnic cutting device has a guiding housing in which there is arranged a part to be severed, which is fashioned so as to be severable at a cut point by a cutting tool having a cutting chisel. A pressure pulse generator containing a pyrotechnic driving charge is arranged in the cutting device for generating a pressure pulse to drive the cutting tool. In the guiding housing there is arranged, between the pressure pulse generator and the cutting tool, an impact capsule that can be accelerated by the pressure pulse of the triggered pressure pulse generator toward an inner thrust base of the cutting tool on the end of the cutting tool opposite to the cutting chisel. The cutting tool has its cutting chisel abutting the cut point before the impact capsule strikes the thrust base.

  • Publication number: 20060145808
    Abstract: The invention relates to a pyromechanical separating device comprising a housing (2) wherein an electrically conductive current conductor rail (1) is arranged. Said current conductor rail is embodied such that it can be separated at a separation point (7) by a separating cutting tool (5) which is driven by a pyrotechnical propelling charge. The current conductive rail (1) comprises, on the ends thereof (14), a fixing means (6) for connecting electrical conductors. According to the invention, both end parts (14) of the current conductor rail (1) are disposed at right angles to the plane of the separation point (7) in order to prevent a break in the current conductor rail (1), and the separation point (7) is formed by a tapering of the cross section of the conductor.

  • Patent number: 5618171
    Abstract: Disclosed is a fluid delivery supply unit having an internal gear pump as a pump unit, with a bearing race in which a driven inner gear is arranged on a bearing journal and the inner gear rotates with it by way of toothing engagement with an outer gear arranged between the inner gear and the bearing race, and the inner gear has one tooth fewer than the outer gear so that a pumping action is produced. A low noise level, resistance to corrosion, and a reduced weight, are obtained by forming parts of the internal gear pump, such as the bearing race, inner gear or outer gear, of a ceramic material.

  • Patent number: 5377713
    Abstract: In a valve the sealing disks in contact with one another consist of sintered silicon carbide ceramic and have on their functional surface a profile bearing percentage of at least 75% established by grinding and/or lapping and/or polishing. The mean roughness at the functional surface amounts to 0.01 to 0.1 .mu.m. The construction is especially suitable for a sanitary mixing faucet.
