  • Patent number: 8643827
    Abstract: A method for measuring the transmit time of light, in particular for cameras. A first light signal is clocked by a first clock controller, input into a light system and reflected back to a receiver photodiode, which determines a reception signal as a result of the first light signal. A further light signal clocked by a further clock controller inputs the photodiode at an angle to the first light signal and is mixed at the photodiode with the first light signal to form a common reception signal, which is filtered with a filter whose frequency response corresponds to the frequency of the clock difference to form a filter signal, the first and further clock signals are also mixed in a mixer to form a mixed signal and the phase shift between the mixed signal and the filter signal is used to determine the transit time of light.

  • Patent number: 8193919
    Abstract: A peripheral load driver that utilizes the power, wiring, and primary load of a conventional doorbell system to drive a doorbell system peripheral load at a higher current without risk of inadvertently energizing the primary load of the conventional doorbell system. The peripheral load driver comprising a power converting means for converting power extracted from the conventional doorbell system from a higher-voltage-at-a-lower-current to a lower-voltage-at-a-higher current wherein the higher-voltage-at-a-lower-current is insufficient to energize the primary load of the conventional doorbell system and the lower-voltage-at-a-higher-current is compatible with the doorbell system peripheral load.

  • Patent number: 7589303
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for determining and/or evaluating a differential, optical signal. According to the invention, at least two first light sources (S1, S2) which are sequentially clocked in terms of light and emitted in a phased manner are provided, in addition to at least one receiver (E) which is used to receive at least the alternating light portion arising from the first light sources (S1, S2). The light intensity radiating through at least one light source (S1, S2) in the measuring arrangement is controlled in such a manner that the clock synchronous alternating light portion, which occurs between different phases, is zero in the receiver (E). By determining the reception signal in the receiver (E) in relation to the phase position in order to regulate the radiated light intensity and by producing an adjustable variable (R) directly or by adding current in the receiver, it is possible to simplify digital implementation of the method with as little sensitivity loss as possible.

    Abstract: The invention relates to a vacuum cleaner with a housing having a dirt chamber closable by a cover, into which a suction socket extends and in which a filter bag is insertable, with a inlet opening of the filter bag being connectable to the suction socket. In order to design the vacuum cleaner so that it allows simple and hygienic handling when removing the filter bag from the dirt chamber it is proposed in accordance with the invention that the suction socket be held on the housing so as to be displaceable back and forth between a position in which it extends into the inlet opening of the filter bag and a position in which it releases the inlet opening.
