  • Patent number: 11207947
    Abstract: A cooling system for a motor vehicle has an electrical energy storage device for driving the motor vehicle; a chiller through which a refrigeration circuit and, fluidically separated therefrom, a main cooling circuit can flow; one or more control elements; at least one heat source, and one or more ambient air coolers. In a first mode, the control elements form the main cooling circuit such that the main cooling circuit can flow through the chiller, the energy storage device and none of the ambient air coolers. In a second mode, the control elements form the main cooling circuit such that the main cooling circuit can flow through the chiller, the energy storage device and at least one of the ambient air coolers. In a third mode, the control elements form the main cooling circuit such that the main cooling circuit can flow through the chiller, at least one of the ambient air coolers and the heat source.

  • Patent number: 10654336
    Abstract: A heating system for an electric or hybrid vehicle, to which a high-voltage accumulator is connected, includes a coolant circuit having a heating circuit to which a heating heat exchanger is connected for air-conditioning the interior, and having a cooling circuit to which a cooler and a heat source are connected. The heating system has at least two refrigerating circuits, wherein a first refrigerating circuit includes an air-conditioning evaporator for air-conditioning the interior, and a first condenser, by which the first refrigerating circuit is thermally coupled to the coolant circuit in order to dissipate heat from the first refrigerating circuit. The second refrigerating circuit is thermally coupled by a second condenser to the coolant circuit. The two refrigerating circuits, however, are not coupled to each other. At least one of the refrigerating circuits further includes a chiller in order to dissipate heat from the coolant circuit.

  • Patent number: 10537932
    Abstract: In a transport method for transferring workpieces between a plurality of successive stations of a processing device, especially a forming device, workpieces are in each case transported from one station to the respective next station of the processing device simultaneously by means of a plurality of gripping tools which are movable jointly in a transport cycle. In the event of a process disturbance, the transport cycle is suspended and the gripping tools with the workpieces are moved into a waiting position in which the workpieces are outside the operating range of processing tools of the stations of the processing device. Once the process disturbance has been eliminated, the transport cycle of the workpieces is resumed. By virtue of the movement of the gripping tools into a safe waiting position outside the operating range of the processing tools of the stations, consequent damage resulting from the process disturbance can be prevented.

  • Publication number: 20150086027
    Abstract: In a method for operating a loudspeaker device having at least one loudspeaker, at least one actual membrane state parameter of a membrane of the loudspeaker is detected by a detecting device. An actual membrane state of the membrane based on the following actual membrane state parameters: actual membrane position (xactual), actual membrane speed (vactual) and actual membrane acceleration (aactual), is determined from the at least one detected actual membrane state parameter (xactual, aactual) and is directly used to determine a driving signal (U(t)) that is applied to the voice coil of the loudspeaker. The voice coil is operatively connected to the membrane. A loudspeaker device being operated with this method and a device for noise compensation are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 8188888
    Abstract: Disclosed are a method and a traffic routing system for controlling traffic flows in which hazardous or special material is transported through safety-critical traffic zones such as tunnels, bridges or locks. In the method and traffic routing system, safety-relevant data is read with the help of a signal transmitter disposed on the transported hazardous or special material and is transmitted to a central computer unit when said vehicle passes reading devices located in the safety-critical traffic zone. The central computer unit determines a safety risk in the safety-critical traffic zone on the basis of the safety-relevant data of all transported hazardous or special material located in the safety-critical traffic zone and sets traffic routing signals.
