  • Publication number: 20200003432
    Abstract: A tank water heater assembly is provided including a tank water heater and a drain pan provided with a sensor holder for mounting a sensor. The sensor holder accommodates a leak detection sensor at predefined distance above an inner surface of a bottom wall of the drain pan. In this way the presence of harmless small amounts of water in the drain pan do not trigger an alarm. A transport assembly is presented for facilitating transportation of the tank water heater assembly to an installation site and subsequent installation. Finally, a method for installation of a tank water heater assembly is provided.

  • Publication number: 20170329510
    Abstract: The simple gesture control of the user interface can be used by visually impaired or blind people in order to enter telephone numbers or account numbers for example. The user interface and the method constitute a shift from the current paradigm of guiding a user on touchscreens, which has precisely the advantage of the handeye coordination allowed by the touchscreen, wherein a user touches the exact location on the touchscreen where a corresponding selection surface is visualized. Instead, a swiping gesture is supported which can be carried out in any region on the touch-sensitive surface and shifts the focus from one selection surface or virtual button to the next. The swiping gesture can be carried out not just in the horizontal and vertical direction but also in a diagonal direction. Diagonal swiping gestures allow a particularly quick selection of the corresponding virtual buttons.

  • Publication number: 20170269828
    Abstract: A simple gesture control system that permits accurate, simple, and secure input of personal identification numbers (PIN) by visually impaired or blind persons at a payment terminal or automatic teller machine is provided. By the user interface, invisible keys can be selected by simple wiping gestures. Here, any necessity for visual or spoken feedback or localization of operating elements is rendered unnecessary. As a result, blind or visually impaired users can input a secret number by touch operation automatically and without outside help. In this way, account is also taken of the statutory requirements in different countries.

  • Patent number: 9751243
    Abstract: A method for producing a molding, the shape of which is adapted to an initial mold, in which method a plurality of layers are deformably placed on top of one another such that the layers can be joined to each other by heat. The layers are deformed by being pressed onto the initial mold and in order to join the layers. Heat is applied in the deformed state. In the arrangement made of layers, at least one converter element is introduced that transforms supplied energy into heat energy and with which at least parts of the layers are heated to join the layers.

  • Publication number: 20160020906
    Abstract: A point-of-sale (POS) terminal is provided for entering a PIN to enable a financial transaction. The point-of-sale terminal has a card reader for reading information from a credit card, a processor for running an operating system, with applications, a touch screen for displaying information and receiving user inputs, and a Security-Box connected between the touch screen and the processor to control the user input on the touch screen to the processor. The Security Box is configured to run in a “PIN Entry Mode” and a “Clear Text Mode.” When running in “PIN Entry Mode” the user input is not forwarded as touch coordinates to the processor and when running in “Clear Text Mode” the touch coordinates are transmitted to the processors.

  • Patent number: 9159203
    Abstract: An automated teller machine is proposed having at least one camera to detect manipulation attempts that captures images of one or more elements arranged in the control panel, such as a keypad, cash-dispensing drawer, card entry slot and generates image data from a plurality of individual image recordings (F1, F2, F3). The at least one camera is connected to a data processing unit that preprocesses the image data generated (individual image data) into a resulting image (R). The preprocessed image data of the resulting image (R) can be computed, for example, by exposure blending from the individual images (F1, F2, F3) and represent a very good data base for data evaluation to detect manipulation.
