  • Patent number: 8461947
    Abstract: An installation switching device which rapidly disconnects short-circuit currents is provided. A contact lever is arranged at least partially in an air gap in a magnetic circuit such that, in case of a short circuit, the interaction between current flow and magnetic flux within the air gap can result in an electrodynamic force effect, which leads to rapid opening of at least one contact point. A switching mechanism acts via a first operating connecting line on the contact lever to open the contact point and/or to keep it open. In case of overcurrent tripping, an overcurrent release acts, by a switching mechanism and via a second operating connecting line, on the switching mechanism to open the contact point and keep it open. In case of short-circuit tripping, the contact lever acts via a third operating connecting line on the switching mechanism to keep the contact point open.

  • Patent number: 8451076
    Abstract: A current path in an installation switching device includes first and second contact points, which respectively include first and second levers. The second lever is arranged in an air gap in a magnetic circuit. In case of a short circuit, an electrodynamic force, which leads to rapid opening of the second contact point, can act on the second lever due to interaction of current flow with magnetic flux within the air gap. A switching mechanism acts via a first connecting line on the first lever to open and/or keep open the first contact point. In case of overcurrent tripping, an overcurrent release acts through the switching mechanism and a second connecting line on the switching mechanism to open and keep open the first contact point. In case of short-circuit tripping, the second lever acts via a third connecting line on the switching mechanism to keep the first contact point open.

  • Patent number: 8256201
    Abstract: A yarn brake for a two-for-one twisting spindle has a brake element mounted in the region of a hollow axle of the spindle between an upper and a lower brake face, the braking force being predeterminable in a defined manner by means of the pretensioning of at least one spring element, which acts on an axially displaceably mounted upper piston, in which the upper brake face is integrated, and the yarn brake being pneumatically releasable to introduce a yarn. The upper piston (27) receiving the upper brake face (28) is configured in such a way and guided with play (S) within a housing (16) of the yarn brake (14) in such a way that it can move aside if necessary into a position (I), in which its center longitudinal axis (37) forms an angle (?) with the center longitudinal axis (38) of the housing (16).
