  • Publication number: 20200003288
    Abstract: A strain wave gear mechanism (1) has a gear mechanism component (CS) and an elastically deformable transmission component (FS) that is at least partially in alignment therewith in the radial direction (29) and can be deformed elliptically by way of a drive component (WG). Internal or external toothing systems (8, 9) on the gear mechanism component (CS) and the transmission component (FS) are brought into engagement in opposite regions of an elliptical axis to rotate the transmission component (FS) and the gear mechanism component (CS) relative to one another. The transmission component (FS) and the gear mechanism component (CS) are mounted such that they can be rotated relative to one another by means of a pivot bearing (30) which has a bearing intermediate space (16).

  • Publication number: 20190018297
    Abstract: Described are electrochromic devices and compositions as well as manufacturing methods for making such electrochromic devices by printing or wet processing of the compositions. The compositions are in the form of a suspension and comprise two or more monomers, nanoparticles of an electrochromic metal oxide, one or more metal salts of the form (M)z(R)y, where M is a metal cation and R is the corresponding salt anion, a carrier liquid and a solvent. The compositions are polymerised to form a composite layer comprising a polymer matrix that hosts the electrochromic nanoparticles and the electrolyte. At least a part of the metal salts (e.g. zinc acetate) is physically adsorbed onto the surface of the nanoparticles and acts as a dispersant.

  • Patent number: 10082133
    Abstract: Hall thrusters with conductive coatings are disclosed. A Hall thruster comprises magnetic shielding in order to avoid collisions with the inner walls of its discharge chamber. By removing the source of erosion, the walls of the chamber can be removed reducing mass, cost and complexity of the thruster. A conductive coating, such as an aluminum coating, is deposited on inner screens between the discharge chamber and the magnetic poles of the thruster. The magnetic field within the chamber shields the conductive coating deposited on the inner and outer screens of the chamber.

  • Patent number: 9944316
    Abstract: Vehicle control systems that can be used, for example, to configure a vehicle (e.g., a lawn tractor or riding lawn mower) to make low- to substantially zero-radius turns. Some of the present vehicle control systems utilize at least one steered wheel position sensor to generate a signal that indicates the actual position of the steerable structure (e.g., wheel) to which the sensor is coupled, rather than a projected or anticipated position of that steerable structure. Vehicles that include such control systems.

  • Patent number: 9874202
    Abstract: A Hall thruster apparatus having walls constructed from a conductive material, such as graphite, and having magnetic shielding of the walls from the ionized plasma has been demonstrated to operate with nearly the same efficiency as a conventional nonmagnetically shielded design using insulators as wall components. The new design is believed to provide the potential of higher power and uniform operation over the operating life of a thruster device.

  • Publication number: 20140343319
    Abstract: In a process for preparing acrylic acid, a reaction gas which comprises a gaseous formaldehyde source and gaseous acetic acid and in which the partial pressure of the formaldehyde source, calculated as formaldehyde equivalents, is at least 85 mbar and in which the molar ratio of the acetic acid to the formaldehyde source, calculated as formaldehyde equivalents, is at least 1 is contacted with a solid condensation catalyst. The space-time yield can be enhanced significantly by increasing the partial pressure of the reactants. The space-time yield remains high even after prolonged process duration.
