  • Publication number: 20200325421
    Abstract: A solid, particulate composition having at least one water-soluble carrier material, at least one fragrance and at least one rheology modifier from the group of heteroglycans. The carrier material being a water-containing salt (hydrate) of which the water vapor partial pressure, at a specific temperature in the range of from 30 to 100° C., corresponds to the H2O partial pressure of the saturated solution of this salt, such that the salt melts at this temperature in its own water of crystallization. Furthermore, the invention relates to methods for preparing the solid composition and to a washing or cleaning agent containing the solid composition. Moreover, the present invention also relates to the use of such a washing or cleaning agent for cleaning textiles or hard surfaces and corresponding methods for cleaning textiles or hard surfaces using such a washing or cleaning agent.

  • Patent number: 10701772
    Abstract: A lighting device comprises at least two groups of light-emitting diodes and an electronic circuit for controlling said light-emitting diodes. The electronic circuit is configured to control each group of light-emitting diodes separately. The beam characteristic of at least one of the groups of light-emitting diodes differs from the beam characteristic of at least one of the other groups of light-emitting diodes. As a result, the light distribution of the lighting device can be switched electronically.

  • Patent number: 7987896
    Abstract: In a method for guiding a cast material out of a casting chamber of a casting system, the cast material is discharged from a casting chamber by means of a succession of guiding rollers and rolling rollers. A rolling roller exerts a rolling force on the cast material to reduce the thickness of the cast material, whereas a guiding roller, which simply guides, exerts no rolling force on the cast material. At least the rolling rollers are driven by a drive, each drive applied under load. Because the rolling force of at least one rolling roller is detected, and the load of the drive of this rolling roller is controlled according to the detected rolling force, a method can be provided by which the stability of the casting speed is increased, and a significant reduction of the thickness of a cast material is achieved.

  • Patent number: 7331690
    Abstract: An infrared headlight useful in a night vision system may be made with an infrared emitter positioned in a reflector. The radiation source is associated with a filter body which has a first filter layer part and a second uncoated part. The two parts are designed so the radiation transmitted through the uncoated part strikes a different area of the reflector than the infrared radiation transmitted through the filter layer. The two regions of the reflector may have differing reflective characteristics.

  • Publication number: 20060050523
    Abstract: The invention discloses an infrared headlight having an infrared emitter which is arranged in a reflector and has a radiation source which is held in an internal area of a lamp vessel, and a night-vision system with an infrared headlight such as this. The radiation source has an associated filter body which has a part provided with a filter layer and an uncoated part, which parts are designed such that all of the radiation through the uncoated part of the filter body essentially strikes a different area of the reflector than the infrared radiation which is transmitted through the filter layer. The invention also discloses an infrared emitter for an infrared headlight such as this.

  • Patent number: 6782511
    Abstract: A business-to-business application service provider includes an Internet website and webserver with EDA-on-demand solutions for system-on-a-chip designers. Such website allows electronic designs in hardware description language to be uploaded into a front-end EDA design environment. A behavioral model simulation tool hosted privately on the webserver tests and validates the design. Such tool executes only in the secure environment of the business-to-business application service provider. The validated solution is then downloaded back over the Internet for a pay-per-use fee to the customer, and in a form ready to be placed and routed by a back-end EDA tool. Such validated design solutions are also downloadable to others in exchange for other designs, or available in technology libraries. The intellectual property created can be re-used, sold, shared, exchanged, and otherwise distributed efficiently and easily from a central for-profit clearinghouse.

  • Patent number: 6779912
    Abstract: The headlight, especially for a motor vehicle, includes at least two separately adjustable reflectors and a reflector height adjusting mechanism for adjusting the reflector heights separately or synchronously. The reflectors include a first reflector for high beam light and/or fog light and a second reflector associated with a low beam light module. The reflector height adjusting device includes separate adjusting devices for individually adjusting the respective heights for the at least two separately adjustable reflectors and a coupling member for the separate adjusting devices. When the separate adjusting devices are put in a coupled state by the coupling member the heights of the at least two reflectors are synchronously adjusted by operation of only one of the separate adjusting devices. The method for adjusting light radiated from the headlight includes performing a pre-adjustment in which each of the reflectors is separately adjusted by the separate adjusting devices.
