  • Patent number: 8803012
    Abstract: A high-voltage assembly contains a switching device. The switching device contains a gear having two coupling rods that can be pivoted in a predetermined pivot plane and that displace an electric contact element during pivoting, whereby the switching position of the switching device can be varied. In a first switching position, the switching device connects a first connection to a second connection, and in a second switching position, it connects the first connection to a third connection, and in a third switching position, the three connections remain unconnected. A drive axis of a drive is arranged perpendicular to a pivot plane of the coupling rods, and the coupling rods are mounted such that at least one of them can pivot through the drive axis region in which the drive axis of the drive penetrates the pivot plane of both coupling rods when adjusting the switching position of the switching device.

  • Patent number: 6412306
    Abstract: A process for producing composite bodies from a plurality of molded pieces made from quartz materials of different or identical structure, preferably fused quartz and/or fused silica. Also, composite bodies produced according to this process. A prismatic molded piece with a rectangular bottom surface and top surface and four plate-shaped molded pieces whose dimensions are tailored to the outer surfaces of the prismatic molded piece are produced in a first step, the plate-shaped molded pieces are then fixed to the outer surfaces of the prismatic molded piece, the prismatic molded piece and the plate-shaped molded pieces are heated together under protective gas to a predetermined temperature T&egr; above the softening temperature of the quartz material and then cooled, resulting in a prismatic composite body which is joined thermally in a material engagement and which can be severed to form a series of plate-shaped composite bodies.
