  • Publication number: 20050251307
    Abstract: A method for displaying driving-specific data in a motor vehicle, preferably within a driver's visual range, is provided. The display can be switched to a sport mode by a control element (CE) and current lap times can be recorded and stored by an analog and/or digital time recorder that is started and stopped by the driver. From the stored values a reference can be selected in a performance display which is compared with the particular lap time currently being recorded and with the difference between the current lap time and the reference time is displayed.

  • Patent number: 5346409
    Abstract: A fixable electric plug connection and a process for fixing an electric plug connection includes two housings which are fitted into one another and which carry corresponding socket and plug contacts. One of the two housings is provided with a surrounding groove which can be locked with a surrounding ridge, for example, in the interior of a stop bolt in order to fix the housing. This provides a space-saving arrangement of the plug connection. The ridge, which is required for the locking of the plug connection, exists in any event as a result of the machining tool operation such that the locking is implemented with simple and low-cost measures.

  • Patent number: 5027103
    Abstract: In order to visually indicate the readiness of a vehicle alarm system or the locked condition of a vehicle door, an electro-optical indicating element is inserted into the locking button of a vehicle locking system. The light-emitting diode, during the pulse operation, is operated with a no-pulse period which is relatively long in comparison to the flashing pulse.

  • Patent number: 4875643
    Abstract: A helicopter equipped with a reciprocating piston internal combustion engine in which an override clutch is arranged in a drive connection between the internal combustion engine and a rotor drive, is equipped with separate first and second electric motor starter devices (screw-push starters). A starter operation takes place in two phases whereby in a first phase initially the rotor drive is brought to a rotor synchronous rotational speed syn by means of the first starter device and in a second phase the internal combustion engine is started by means of the second starter device. When the internal combustion engine exceeds the idling rotational speed nl, the override clutch establishes the power-flow connection between the internal combustion engine and the rotor drive. Both phases can be carried out manually as also by a partly automatic or fully automatic control system on the basis of key depression.

  • Patent number: 4753614
    Abstract: A connecting system is disclosed for electric connector sockets. These sockets comprise, in a recess of an insulating housing, a supported contact member, the electric conductor elements of which are connectible to a further electric conductor element of a plug inserted from the outside. Several insulating housings can be releasably plugged together into a unit by way of detent means. The detent means of each housing serve simultaneously for fixing the connector socket in the adjoining housing.

  • Patent number: 4626025
    Abstract: A vehicle includes a sun-roof having a roof aperture closable by a hatch, wherein the hatch is movable by means of a power operated device between a canted position and a closed position and, in the closed position, is selectively lockable or unlockable. In the unlocked position of the device, the hatch can be removed.In order to enhance comfort in operating the device and in order to securely hold the hatch in position in all operating conditions, an electric motor cooperating with transmitting elements is provided for operating the device, this motor being actuatable by means of a manually operable switch and, in dependence on the ignition lock position, by position switches, a hatch sensor switch, and by the vehicle speed.

  • Patent number: 4485788
    Abstract: A fuel injection system for a multi-cylinder aircraft engine in which, in order to secure the fuel supply, a pressure-measuring device is connected to the feed line leading from the fuel tank to the fuel quantity distributor, into which are installed two parallel fuel pumps and a fuel filter; this pressure-measuring device in case of a predetermined pressure drop switches on the fuel pump which previously was not in operation; in case of an excessive pressure difference at the fuel filter which is measured by pressure-measuring device upstream and downstream of the filter, an electromagnetic valve installed into a bypass line to the fuel filter is opened; the soiling degree of the fuel filter is indicated by a hydraulically actuated difference pressure-measuring device with pressure limitation.
