  • Patent number: 10435067
    Abstract: A wheel suspension system (101) with at least one wheel support (103), first and second coupling rods (105, 107) and at least one track rod (109). The first and second coupling rods (105, 107) are connected to one another in an articulated manner. The second coupling rod (107) and the wheel support (103) are connected to one another in an articulated manner. The track rod (109) is designed to apply a steering torque to the first coupling rod (105).

  • Patent number: 6971272
    Abstract: A circuit board, which includes one or more sensors, is integrated in a fluid control device, such as a valve manifold and a base plate. The fluid control device selectively directs a fluid used to control pneumatic or hydraulic equipment. The sensors are used to measure physical characteristics of the fluid, such as flow rate, pressure, and temperature. A flow sensor includes a paddle and a support member. The paddle is disposed at least partially in an orifice and is displaced in response to fluid flow. The support member positions the paddle in the orifice and includes a plurality of strain gauges. The strain gauges are disposed on only one side of the support member and are mechanically stressed in response to the paddle being displaced by the fluid flow.

  • Patent number: 6901794
    Abstract: A flow sensor includes sensors connected to a flexible membrane. The sensors detect ambient temperature, pressure, and flow rate of a medium. A method of sensing flow rate includes providing the flexible membrane; coupling the plurality of sensors to the flexible membrane; and detecting ambient temperature, pressure, and flow rate of the medium by the sensors. A flow sensing system includes the flow sensor, an operational amplifier, and a closed loop controller. The sensors are connected in a Wheatstone bridge configuration. The operational amplifier is connected to the Wheatstone bridge and outputs a pressure signal representative of the pressure of the medium. The closed loop controller is connected to the operational amplifier and controls a current through a heating element for a resistor in the bridge such that a voltage across the operational amplifier is substantially zero. The output of the closed loop controller represents the flow rate.

  • Patent number: 6769299
    Abstract: A flow sensor includes a mounting plate, bending plate, and a sensing assembly. The mounting plate is mounted to an internal surface of an air hose. The mounting plate is flexibly coupled to the bending plate, which is displaced in response to the flow of gas. The sensing assembly is positioned on the bending plate and includes a temperature sensor for sensing relatively lower flow rates during a thermal mode, and one or more displacement sensors for sensing relatively higher flow rates during a displacement mode. The temperature sensor outputs a thermal mode signal and the displacement sensors output a displacement mode signal. A flow sensing system includes the flow sensor, processor, memory, and a computer. The processor is responsive to the thermal and displacement mode signals. The computer is coupled to the processor and controls calibration of the flow sensor.
