  • Publication number: 20230280394
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide an automated test equipment (a “tester”) for testing a device under test, including a bidirectional dedicated real-time handler interface. Some embodiments include an interface having a trigger function, a fixed endpoint interface, an interface arranged on a test head, and/or a number of lines/communication channels adapted to a specific communication task, without separate signal lines, for example. The bidirectional dedicated real-time handler interface can be used to transmit a multiple signals, such as a thermal control signal, synchronization signal, and/or other information to the handler in real-time, and the transmitted signals can be test site specific. The real-time signaling advantageously improves testing accuracy and efficiency.

  • Patent number: 11704987
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to aspirating smoke detectors (ASD). In an ASD, ambient air is aspirated and is fed to a fire detector unit for determining a signal level. For normal operation, the suction power is set to a nominal airflow value and this is increased from a minimum signal level value in order to shorten the transport time of aspirated smoke through the suction pipe to the fire detector unit. In some embodiments, an interruption signal provided for normal operation is output if the airflow exceeds an upper limit value for a minimum period. Independently thereof, the suction power is increased from the minimum signal level value only to the extent that the airflow does not exceed the upper limit value. Or, regardless thereof, the suction power is increased only for a timespan smaller than the minimum period in which the airflow exceeds the upper limit value.

  • Patent number: 11322007
    Abstract: A danger detector, for example a flame detector, includes an alarm housing with an alarm cover. The housing part of the alarm cover is permeable to heat radiation in the central infrared range. A non-contact, optical heat radiation sensor which is sensitive to the incoming heat radiation and optically oriented to the housing part is arranged in the alarm housing. A processing unit for further processing a sensor signal emitted by the heat radiation sensor is mounted downstream of the heat radiation sensor. The processing unit is designed to monitor the signal emitted by the sensor with respect to significant fluctuations or flicker frequencies for open flames and to determine, based on a direct component of the signal emitted by the sensor, a temperature value for the ambient temperature in the surroundings of the danger detector. The heat radiation sensor may be a thermopile or a bolometer.

  • Patent number: 11162194
    Abstract: A device for melt-spinning, drawing, and winding a thread group includes a spinning device having a row of spinning nozzles. The threads produced by the spinning nozzles are drawn by means of a godet device with multiple drivable godets. The device is paired with a winding device with multiple winding stations arranged in a row. The row of winding stations is arranged orthogonally to the row of spinning nozzles. The different thread spacings within the spinning device and the godet device are bridged by a thread deflecting device having a first group of thread guides and a second group of thread guides. The thread guides of the first group are arranged next to one another in a horizontal row with a spinning spacing. It is possible to obtain large deflections with a low height. The thread guides of the two groups are made of freely rotatable rollers.
