  • Publication number: 20210003147
    Abstract: An electric coolant pump (1) conveys cooling fluid in order to cool a combustion engine of a vehicle. The electric coolant pump (1) has a pump impeller (2) for accelerating the coolant to be conveyed, a rotor shaft (3) on which the pump impeller (2) is fixed, an electric motor (6), having a stator (8) and a rotor (7), for driving the rotor shaft (3). A control circuit (13) controls the electric motor (6). A pump housing (10) accommodates at least the control circuit (13) and the electric motor (6). The coolant to be conveyed is able to flow through the pump housing (10). The coolant to be conveyed thereby flows around the stator (8), the rotor (6) and the control circuit (13).

  • Patent number: 9882289
    Abstract: An electrical connector unit and having an electrical connector and a connection tab connected to the electrical connector or connecting the electrical connector to a carrier-strip when a carrier strip is included in the electrical connector unit. The connector tab has a weakened shear resistance zone, so when the connection tab is sheared to separate it from the electrical connector or to separate the electrical connector and the carrier-strip, a reduced shearing force is required to shear the connection tab.

  • Patent number: 9853366
    Abstract: A crimp contact is disclosed. The crimp contact has a receptacle extending in a longitudinal direction up to a receptacle end, a crimp section extending along the receptacle and beyond the receptacle end to a front end, and a wing extending from the crimp section between the receptacle end and the front end transversely to the longitudinal direction, the wing having a conductor displacing member overlapping the receptacle in the longitudinal direction. The receptacle receives a conductor in the longitudinal direction. The crimp section encloses the conductor subsequent to crimping.
