  • Publication number: 20220003869
    Abstract: A sensor device (10) comprising a housing (48a-b), a position sensor (44) for determining an alignment, a display unit (46a-d) for displaying alignment information, and a control and evaluation unit (40) configured to use the position sensor (44) to determine the sensor device's (10) alignment, to compare the alignment with a desired alignment, and to display a comparison result using the display unit (46a-d), wherein the display unit (46a-d) comprises at least three light sources (46a-d) at positions distributed over the housing (48a-b), each light source (46a-d) being configured to assume a first display state for a correct alignment and a second display state for an alignment that is not yet correct, with the control and evaluation unit (40) further being configured to display the comparison result as display states of the light sources (46a-d).

  • Publication number: 20210124022
    Abstract: A sensor is provided comprising at least one transmitter for transmitting a transmission signal; at least one receiver for generating a received signal from the transmitted signal reflected back by the objects; a base unit; a scanning unit movable about an axis of rotation with respect to the base unit for a periodic scanning of the monitored zone; and a control and evaluation unit for detecting information on the objects with reference to the received signal, wherein an inductive energy transmission unit is provided between the base unit and the scanning unit that comprises a first guide element of the base unit and a second guide element of the scanning unit for guiding the magnetic field of the inductive energy transmission; and wherein the guide elements have an L-shaped cross-section. In this respect, the guide elements are divided into at least two respective guide segments in the peripheral direction.

  • Patent number: 10316169
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the use of NOR-HALS compounds in flame retardant polymer compositions. These compositions are especially useful for the manufacture of flame retardant compositions based on thermoplastic polymers, especially polyolefin homo- and copolymers, polycondensates, such as polyamines or polyesters and duro-plastic polymers, such as polyepoxides.

  • Patent number: 10263468
    Abstract: The invention relates to an apparatus for the transmission of data and energy between two objects moving relative to one another about a common axis of rotation. The objects each comprise coils which are disposed opposite and are spaced apart axially with respect to the axis of rotation such that an energy transmission between the coils is possible by inductive coupling. A respective electrode carrier having a respective electrical conductor is provided coaxially to and rotationally fixed with respect to the respective coils, wherein the electrode carriers are disposed opposite and spaced apart axially and the electrical conductors are arranged such that a data transmission between the electrical conductors is possible by electrical coupling. The electrical conductors are circular or part-circular and are concentric to the axis of rotation of the relative movement. In addition, the respective coil windings and electrical conductors are arranged concentric to one another.
