  • Patent number: 11105355
    Abstract: A connecting device having a hollow-body-like plug-in part which is of variable outer circumference and which interacts with a fixing device which is at least partially insertable into the plug-in part, wherein the fixing device is connectable to an actuation section which projects out of the plug-in part. Here, the plug-in part, with the fixing device inserted therein and with the actuation section connected thereto, has the minimum external shape thereof in terms of the dimensions thereof when the actuation section is in a rest position. The actuation section is moved by means of axial or radial movement relative to the plug-in part into a working position in which the plug-in part has the maximum external shape thereof in terms of the dimensions thereof, wherein the plug-in part has a closed shape on its side situated opposite the insertion side of the fixing device.

  • Patent number: 10094738
    Abstract: A method is described for determining angle errors when measuring slewing angles of a pivoted light-deflecting device, including the following steps: emitting a first light beam and a second light beam, which enclose a light beam angle, onto the light-deflecting device; receiving the first light beam and second light beam deflected by the light-deflecting device and reflected by an object; calculating a first propagation path of the first light beam and a second propagation path of the second light beam; pivoting the light-deflecting device from an initial position to a final position, respective slewing angles of the light-deflecting device being measured in the process and a dependency of the first propagation path on the measured slewing angles being determined; and calculating an angle error for a measured slewing angle to be corrected from the set of measured slewing angles by using the light beam angle, the second propagation path and the dependency of the first propagation path on the measured slewing
