  • Patent number: 6201326
    Abstract: A brush holder equipped as a component on a printed circuit board and is inserted into a recess provided in a transmission housing of the drive device and thereby can be slid in the radial direction over a commutator of an already completely assembled armature. The drive device according to the invention is provided for moving a sliding sunroof of a vehicle.

  • Patent number: 6028370
    Abstract: The adjusting device for adjusting a position of a sun roof of a vehicle has one incremental position encoder and two absolute position encoders, with whose aid, at each position of the sun roof, an unambiguous association with the actual position of the sun roof is possible, regardless of whether there has been a failure of the adjusting device or a mechanical change in position of the sun roof. The adjusting device of the invention is intended for a sun roof of a motor vehicle.

  • Patent number: 5747884
    Abstract: An arrangement for operating an adjustment drive (11) comprising a relay-controlled change-over facility (12) for the right-handed rotation/left-handed rotation of the positioning motor (10). A first semiconductor switch (23) is provided to supply current to a first relay winding (15) and a second semiconductor switch (25) to supply current to a second relay winding (16). A third semiconductor switch (26) is connected in series with the first relay winding (15) and in series with the second relay winding (16). By turning the third semiconductor switch (26) on and off, it is possible to enable or block a supply of current to the relay windings (15, 16). An alloying through of one of the first two semiconductor switches (23, 25) remains without consequences for the adjustment drive (11). An inadvertent adjustment process does not occur.
