  • Patent number: 9791168
    Abstract: A heating block including a heating block body which receives/guides a liquid medium, an electric heating element arranged in the cavity for heating the medium via electric current, a semiconductor switch for controlling the electric current flowing through the heating element to control a heating power of the heating element, and a closure piece for closing an opening in the heating block body to the cavity element. The semiconductor switch is electrically and thermally conductively connected to the closure piece via first connection terminal to electrically connect the first connection terminal to the heating element via the closure piece, and to thermally connect the first connection terminal to the medium via the closure piece. The semiconductor switch is directly connected to a control board by a second connection terminal so that the semiconductor switch is spatially arranged and mechanically connected directly between the control board and the connection piece.

  • Patent number: 9709299
    Abstract: A heating block for use in a water heater for heating water, having a heating block body, in particular made of plastic, for forming a cavity for conducting the water and for receiving at least one heating element. The heating block body includes a first partial shell having a first sub-cavity and a second partial shell having a second sub-cavity. The first and the second partial shells are assembled in a joining region and form between them the cavity from the two sub-cavities. The joining region is not formed, at least partially, in a joining plane and/or the first and the second partial shells are welded together by the supply of heat via a medium, in particular, an essentially abrasion-free and/or vibration-free welding process, and/or the first partial cavity has a greater depth than the second partial cavity or vice versa.

  • Patent number: 8357313
    Abstract: The invention relates to a new class of luminescent substances (phosphorous) based on an universally dopable matrix made of an amorphous, at the most partially crystalline network of the elements P, Si, B, Al and N, preferably the composition Si3B3N7. Optical excitation and emission can be varied in this system over the entire practically relevant field by incorporation of any cationic activators, alone or in combination, but also by incorporation of oxygen as anionic component. This opens up the entire spectrum of use of luminescent substances, such as illumination systems or electronic screens.
