  • Patent number: 10535951
    Abstract: A plug connector comprises a first plug, a second plug, and a securing device configured to mechanically secure the first plug to the second plug. The second plug has a receptacle with a ramp surface and a locking surface. The securing device has a lever pivotably mounted on the first plug. The lever pivotably bears a connecting element which has a securing cam on a free end of the connecting element. The receptacle of the second plug receives the securing cam and the ramp surface of the receptacle cooperates with the free end of the connecting element to forcibly guide the securing cam behind the locking surface of the receptacle when the first plug and the second plug are plugged together.

  • Patent number: 10505306
    Abstract: A plug comprises a plug housing, an electrically conductive plug contact disposed in the plug housing, a contact body cooperating with the plug contact, and a slider displaceably guided in a sliding guide formed on the plug housing. The slider has a ramp surface cooperating with the contact body such that the contact body is pushed against the plug contact when the slider is slid into the plug housing.

  • Patent number: 8998024
    Abstract: A device that stores a low molecular gas, such as hydrogen (H2), under high pressure includes having an inner shell and at least one outer sleeve surrounding the inner shell. The region between the inner shell and the outer sleeve is connected via at least one valve with a backflow prevention capability to the region surrounded by the inner shell. The valve is thereby formed so that low molecular gas which has diffused through the inner shell can flow back into the inner shell when there are suitable pressure conditions.
