  • Patent number: 10781801
    Abstract: An axial piston motor having a cylinder housing, in which a plurality of cylinders are formed, and having pistons which are movably guided in the cylinders, wherein the pistons are attached to a swash plate and wherein a flow of a fluid that has entered via an inlet into the axial piston motor is controlled into and out of the cylinders by means of inlet and outlet valves, wherein the inlet and/or outlet valves comprise fluid change openings which are formed in a cylinder head plate and which can be temporarily released and covered by means of a rotary slide, for which purpose the rotary slide forms at least one passage opening.

  • Patent number: 10766640
    Abstract: A payload interposer (PIP) system and its control software provide an interface between a space vehicle and a payload. The PIP board facilitates power and communications between a command and data handler (CDH) of the space vehicle and the payload. A microcontroller of the PIP board may control operation of the payload, format messages between the space vehicle and the payload, and extract data from the payload for downlink via the space vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10445110
    Abstract: A space vehicle may have a modular board configuration that commonly uses some or all components and a common operating system for at least some of the boards. Each modular board may have its own dedicated processing, and processing loads may be distributed. The space vehicle may be reprogrammable, and may be launched without code that enables all functionality and/or components. Code errors may be detected and the space vehicle may be reset to a working code version to prevent system failure.

  • Patent number: 10351266
    Abstract: An ADCS module may be configured to use coordinate data from 2D photodiodes in one or more sun sensors to determine a sun vector. The ADCS module may then use the sun vector in reference to its own body faced (BF) coordinate system to calculate a change in the orientation of the space vehicle. The change in orientation mechanism may be accomplished by reaction wheels, ion thrusters, or other orientation altering mechanisms. A miniature, intelligent star tracker may be included that improves satellite attitude determination and pointing accuracy. An improved reaction wheel assembly may be included that is more robust and suitable for inclusion in small space vehicles.

  • Patent number: 10281886
    Abstract: A method for energy-efficient control of an installation comprises providing a plurality of components, wherein at least one of the plurality of components is able to adopt at least a first, high-energy active state and a second, low-energy standby state. Individual components in the active state have logical dependencies among one another. The method also includes ascertaining for at least one of the plurality of components to store component-specific time information and non-component-specific time information based on the logical dependency with respect to at least one other component.

  • Patent number: 10061874
    Abstract: A method for monitoring a process and/or production plant, which includes a plurality of components and which is planned using a plurality of engineering systems, includes a step of providing first result data pertaining to at least one portion of the plurality of components using a first of the plurality of engineering systems, and second result data pertaining to at least one portion of the plurality of components using a second of the plurality of engineering systems. The method also includes a step of extracting topology data, which describe an arrangement of the plurality of components within the process and/or automation plant, and operating data for the plurality of components from the first and second result data. The method further includes creating a model for the process and/or production plant by using the topology data and the operating data. Also disclosed is an apparatus for carrying out the method.

  • Patent number: 9766871
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for operating a processing and/or production installation having at least two engineering systems producing a respective output file including an operating variable for at least one component of the installation. The first output file of a first engineering system is transmitted from the first engineering system to a second engineering system. A second output file is provided by a second engineering system using the first output file, and the processing and/or production installation being operated using the second output file. first origin data describing an origin of the first output file of the first engineering system, and second origin data describing an origin of the second output file from the second engineering system.
