  • Patent number: 6527427
    Abstract: A device for setting the distance between a first and a second component, in particular for the horizontal and vertical setting of motor vehicle headlamps, includes a setting screw which is connected to the first component, and which engages the second component. The drive for the setting screw has a slipping clutch that prevents overadjustment of the distance setting device after a maximum torque is reached. The slipping clutch prevents the transmission of torque to the setting screw by slipping, and thereby prevents damage to the distance setting device.

  • Patent number: 6215415
    Abstract: A parking aid for a motor vehicle, which measures the distance between an object and the motor vehicle in a contactless manner and has a plurality of sensors which are arranged on the motor vehicle, each sensor emitting a signal and receiving the signal reflected from an object located in the direction of the beam, and an evaluation device connected to the sensors determining the distance between the object and the motor vehicle from the signals received. The outlay for electrically synchronizing the sensors is reduced and which nevertheless allows reliable detection of the actual object for accurate measurement of the distance, has three sensors which are arranged directly next to one another to provide approximate coverage of the same detection area, whereby the main beam of each sensor having approximately the same beam angle.

  • Patent number: 5953913
    Abstract: A system for an electro-hydraulic pressure supply for a power-assist device in a motor vehicle in which, by a pump which is arranged in an oil-filled container and driven by an electric motor, the oil is conducted through an outlet opening to the power-assist device and returned from the power-assist device via a return opening into the container. A shaft of the electric motor is coupled with a shaft of the pump. In order to provide an arrangement for an electro-hydraulic pressure supply for power-assist devices which can be used also in small structural units, the shaft of the electric motor and the shaft of the pump are coupled in a central bearing.

  • Patent number: 5821863
    Abstract: In a rain sensor, a sensor field is arranged between two windshield wiper blades which lie one above the other on a windshield. The sensor field is thus located outside of the field of view of the driver and is wiped by the lower windshield wiper blade. The sensor field is connected to an evaluation circuit arranged on a wiper motor by connecting lines which pass around the lower wiper blade.

  • Patent number: 5801539
    Abstract: A moisture sensor has two spaced main electrodes which are arranged on the outer side of the windshield of a motor vehicle in a region which is passed over by the windshield wiper and are connected to an evaluation circuit for the determination of resistance as a function of a degree of moisture. In order to improve the precision of the measurement results supplied by the moisture sensor, an auxiliary electrode is arranged between the two main electrodes outside a region passed over by the wiper in order to determine a shunt resistance formed by residues on the windshield and/or in the region of a windshield gasket covering. The main electrodes and the auxiliary electrode lead to an evaluation circuit.

  • Patent number: 5622360
    Abstract: A feeder station for apparatus for collating printed sheets includes a mechanism for imparting motion to individual sheets prior to the time the sheets are engaged by a pusher mechanism which propels the stack of collated sheets being formed along a conveyor. The mechanism for imparting motion to the individual sheets in the feeder station contacts the sheets within a region which is directly aligned with the path the engaged portion of the sheet travels in moving from a feed magazine to the feeder station under the influence of a gripper device, the sheet thus being transferred directly from the gripper device into contact with the motion imparting mechanism.
