  • Patent number: 11951866
    Abstract: A method for determining an operating temperature of a battery cell in which (i) a value of a measure variable for determining an external temperature of the battery cell is detected, (ii) an internal temperature of the battery cell is determined by detecting an electrical impedance of the battery cell, and (iii) a value of the operating temperature of the battery cell is determined from the external and/or the internal temperature. The internal temperature of the battery cell in a first operating state of the battery cell is determined more frequently when the value of the determined external temperature, the internal temperature and/or the operating temperature lies within a predefined first safe range, and is determined less frequently when the value of the determined external temperature, the internal temperature and/or the operating temperature lies outside the predefined first safe range.

  • Publication number: 20110117338
    Abstract: Open pore foams are coated with metal or metal alloys by electrolytic or electroless plating. The characteristics of the plating bath are adjusted to decrease the surface tension such that the plate bath composition can pass into the pores of the foam, preferably at least two and most preferably more than five pores in depth from the surface of the foam matrix. This can be accomplished by adding a surfactant, solvent or other constituent to reduce the surface tension of the plate bath. In addition, heat and pressure can be used to drive in the plate bath composition into the passage ways of connected open pores in the foam matrix. The net result is to plate the inside surfaces of the pores in the foam matrix, while maintaining the passageways through the foam. Pretreatment of the pore surfaces can be used to promote adhesion of the metal. Particularly advantageous results are achieved when the foam matrix is a ceramic foam.

  • Patent number: 6747183
    Abstract: An adhesive bandage having a backing material; an adhesive applied to at least one second major surface of the backing material; and a wound contacting pad secured to the backing by a portion of said adhesive. The bandage has a tapered portion and a non-tapered portion. The length of the tapered portion of the bandage ranges from about 30% to about 70% of the total length of the bandage.
