  • Publication number: 20210210945
    Abstract: A method for operating a circuit breaker includes: initiating a shutdown process when a fault current caused by body contact or ground contact is detected; and during the shutdown process, reducing a voltage value between a neutral conductor and at least one current-carrying conductor at an output of the circuit breaker to substantially zero from an operating-voltage value according to a predetermined shutdown curve by a shutdown unit. During the shutdown process, the circuit is not suddenly interrupted, but the voltage value is reduced from a starting point according to the shutdown curve and only reaches substantially zero after a predetermined first time period.

  • Patent number: 10756714
    Abstract: Disclosed aspects relate to a clock distribution network of a synchronous logic device. The synchronous logic device comprises multiple sub-circuits belonging to different clock domains. The clock distribution network comprises a clock source operable for providing a global clock signal, at least one programmable delay line associated with a certain sub-circuit operable for generating a local clock signal for said sub-circuit by delaying the global clock signal or a signal derived therefrom and a global skew control circuit for managing clock skew between the local clock signals. The global skew control circuit is operable for managing clock skew between at least some local clock signals by regularly adjusting the delay caused by at least one programmable delay line when in a deskewing operating mode, and disabling adjusting the delays of the programmable delay lines when in a locked operating mode.

  • Patent number: 10717622
    Abstract: A delivery device for a sheet-processing machine, comprises at least one deposition station and a conveyer station, by the use of which, upstream-processed sheets of printed material can be picked up in a transfer location, and can be conveyed through the deposition station via a first conveying system, where they can be deposited optionally to form a stack, or can be conveyed beyond that stack. A holding device, which holds down the uppermost sheet of the stack during the transfer of a sheet to be conveyed against an entrainment or a lifting, is provided with one or with a plurality of holding assemblies which are spaced apart from each other transversely to the transport direction. A sheet-guiding element may be provided, which adjoins the deposition station and which is variable in its vertical position with at least its upstream end by the use of an actuating drive.
