  • Patent number: 6989902
    Abstract: A measuring setup for measuring an optical device under test—DUT—includes an optical signal source for applying an optical signal to the DUT, and an optical receiver unit for measuring a response of the DUT on the applied signal. A measurement unit is coupled between the optical signal source and the optical receiver unit. The measurement unit comprises an optical circuit to provide optical signals from and/or to the DUT for measuring the DUT, whereby the optical circuit comprises optical components showing high susceptibility to mechanical noise. A shielding unit receives the optical circuit and provides at least partial shielding of the optical circuit and/or the DUT against mechanical noise.

  • Patent number: 6915060
    Abstract: A cable holder, in particular for fiber optics cables, includes a base piece that contains a cable receiving duct that is open on top and axially, into which a cable can be loaded, and a cover piece that provides a retaining structure and that is hinged on the base piece to swivel from an open position into a closed position around a swivel axis. In the open position of the cover piece, the cover piece sticks out from the base piece and the cable is loadable into the cable receiving duct. In the closed position of the cover piece, the cover piece extends along the base piece and the retaining structure localizes the loaded cable on the cable receiving duct. The swivel axis extends in the area of one axial end of the cable receiving duct perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of the cable receiving duct and/or perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of the cable.

  • Patent number: 6783391
    Abstract: A carrier for several cable holders, especially of fiber optical cables, includes a housing that comprises several receptacles on one cable holder side, into which one of the cable holders can be plugged respectively. A cable that is held by the cable holder and that sticks out from it in a plug direction penetrates the housing on a device side that faces away from the cable holder side. The plug directions of several or all receptacles run parallel to each other.

  • Publication number: 20030092313
    Abstract: The present invention concerns a carrier for several cable holders, especially of fiber optical cables. The cable holder has a housing that comprises several receptacles on one cable holder side, into which one of the cable holders can be plugged respectively. A cable that is held by the cable holder and that sticks out from it in plug direction penetrates the housing on a device side that faces away from the cable holder side. The plug directions of several or all receptacles run parallel to each other.

  • Publication number: 20030011778
    Abstract: A measuring setup (100, 10, 140) for measuring an optical device under test—DUT-(120) comprises an optical signal source (100) for applying an optical signal to the DUT (120), and an optical receiver unit (140) for measuring a response of the DUT (120) on the applied signal. A measurement unit (10) is coupled between the optical signal source (100) and the optical receiver unit (140). The measurement unit (10) comprises an optical circuit (20) to provide optical signals from and/or to the DUT (120) for measuring the DUT (120), whereby the optical circuit (20) comprises optical components (130) showing high susceptibility to mechanical noise. A shielding unit (30, 40) receives the optical circuit (20) and provides at least partial shielding of the optical circuit (20) and/or the DUT (120) against mechanical noise.

  • Patent number: 5413102
    Abstract: A medical sensor for monitoring vital signs, in particular oxygen saturation, consists of a flexible carrier carrying the transmitter and receiver elements, and a housing element specifically adapted for application to a part of the human body, such as a finger. The flexible carrier may be used with a variety of different housing elements, such that it can be applied to virtually any limb or other part of the human body.

  • Patent number: 5369549
    Abstract: A device casing includes at least two casing parts, which are held together by corner parts that are pushed over the corners of the casing parts. Locking elements are provided to connect the corner parts with the casing parts. The locking elements prevent the corner parts coming away from the casing once assembled.

  • Patent number: 5343869
    Abstract: A portable hand-held monitor (1) for monitoring vital signs is connected, via a single connector (7), with a cable (9). This cable ends up in a combiner (10) which, in turn, receives plugs (12a to 12d) leading, via cables (11a to 11d), to single sensors or transducers applied to a patient. Portable hand-held monitor (1) comprises a display (3) and internal memory means, in order to store recorded vital signs and to transmit them to a remote computer later on. As only a single cable (9) is required for connection with combiner (10), patient monitoring becomes quite easy if the combiner (10), cable (9) and the associated sensors and interconnection cables are left at or near the patient. In this case, a plug (8) connected with cable (9) has simply to be inserted into connector (7), in order to start data acquisition. The same simple approach may be used to monitor the next patient, and so on.
