  • Patent number: 11509254
    Abstract: In a method for detecting a motor phase fault of a motor arrangement, the motor phases of which are connected to a drive circuit having a DC voltage intermediate circuit and an inverter. A motor phase voltage at at least one of the motor phases with respect to a reference potential is captured while the inverter is switched off; and a voltage profile of the captured motor phase voltage is used to determine whether there is a motor phase fault on one of the motor phases of the motor arrangement.

  • Patent number: 11478960
    Abstract: A method produces a vehicle replacement part for a first vehicle component of a connecting system, which is fixed to a second vehicle component via a detachable clip connection. The first vehicle component has a male fixing element, and the second vehicle component has a female fixing element. To connect the first vehicle component to the second vehicle component, the male fixing element is plugged into the female fixing element and is latched. The production method of the vehicle replacement part provides an unfinished part, which is dimensioned to produce the vehicle replacement part. Then, the unfinished part is reshaped in accordance with the geometry of the first vehicle component. Male fixing elements are then provided and, in the last step, the male fixing elements are joined to the reshaped unfinished part.

  • Patent number: 11372047
    Abstract: A drive circuit for driving an electronically commutated motor contains a DC voltage intermediate circuit, and an inverter which is connected to the latter and has a bridge circuit containing a plurality of transistors, to which the motor phases of a motor configuration containing the motor can be connected. For detecting an insulation fault in the motor configuration, a positive or negative transistor of the inverter is switched on, while all other transistors of the inverter are switched off before all transistors of the inverter are switched off. A motor phase voltage of a selected motor phase of the motor phases with respect to a reference potential is then captured, while all transistors of the inverter remain switched off in order to determine whether there is an insulation fault on the motor phase on a basis of a voltage profile of the motor phase voltage.

  • Publication number: 20200129059
    Abstract: A method for determining the visual acuity, wherein two spaced outer markings and an orientation marking lying between but not on a straight connecting line are displayed to the user on a display in an individual test as part of a plurality of tests. The user is to move the orientation marking on the display perpendicularly to the straight connecting line by actuating the device until the user perceives the marking as lying on the straight connecting line. Afterwards, the electronic device registers the effective distance between the orientation marking and the connecting line. At least two tests are carried out in which the outer markings are arranged along the same main axis, and at least the vertical main axis and the horizontal main axis are measured. After the manipulation, the effective distance from the individual tests of the series is used for ascertaining the visual acuity.
