  • Patent number: 5382792
    Abstract: An angle sensor is proposed, preferably a no-contact angle sensor, particularly for use in motor vehicles, with the angle sensor including a component (10) that is carried along by the arrangement whose angular displacement is to be monitored, and a measuring device (12) for determining the rotational displacement angle (13, .PSI.). The measuring device (12, 14, 16) is hermetically encapsulated and includes a magnetic coupling (22, 24) between the carried-along component (10) and the measuring device (12, 14, 16).

  • Patent number: 4600958
    Abstract: For saving lateral space in a multitrack magnetic head, the connection lead paths (11, 12) run separately side by side along the outside surface of one magnetic layer (13) of the yoke and connect with the conducting strip that runs between the magnetic layers at the open end of the yoke by straps (18, 19) running around the side edges of the upper magnetic layer. Outside the region of the yoke these conductor straps are wider and are superposed one on the other, with an insulating layer between them, for lower resistance loss (see lower part of figure).

  • Patent number: 4295127
    Abstract: To provide for alphanumeric representation, for example to indicate speed limits, traffic signals and the like, a frame forming a flat plate and defining a display surface is formed with grooves in which electromagnetically operated indicating elements are positioned, the indicating elements having differently colored regions, the colors either matching or contrasting with that of the display surface so that, either, the region surrounding the indicating element will appear blank, or have the aspect of a bar; by arranging the elements in bar codes, alphanumeric information can be provided. The indicating elements are held in any one pivoted position by permanent magnets and moved between positions by a pulse applied to a solenoid to change the position of the element from one to another stable, magnetically biassed position.

  • Patent number: 4143382
    Abstract: A strip of recording paper on which a metallization is formed on a paper substrate, which metallization is burned off under the influence of an electrical discharge is passed beneath a recording head. In one embodiment, the recording head is moved transversely across the recording paper, while in engagement with a group of contact tracks which are, selectively, energized in accordance with the desired alphanumeric output. The recording head is formed with point contact electrodes and line-contact electrodes. The alphanumeric output is displayed on the instrument in segmental form and when a segment is to be printed in the direction transverse to the relative direction of movement of the head and the paper, the line-contact electrode is momentarily energized to cause printing of a line; if a segment is to be printed which extends in the direction of relative movement of the head and the paper, a point contact segment is energized for a distance corresponding to the distance of the segment to be formed.

  • Patent number: 3962002
    Abstract: A thin sheet of metal is first etched in accordance with similar patterns after exposure through masks, from both sides, to form parallel strips which, preferably, extend to integral connecting elements and may, also, include printed circuit connections or components; one of the sides of the strips, additionally, includes transverse cross connections to provide for mechanical attachment of the parallel strips, permitting application of the parallel strips to a substrate, for subsequent removal, so that the resulting electrode will be a plurality of closely spaced parallel strips applied, for example by an adhesive, on a substrate, integral with connecting portions for a printed circuit.
