  • Publication number: 20210221597
    Abstract: A container system having connection devices for establishing a fluid connection between the containers. In one aspect, a connection device comprises a thin point that, within its shape, has a tip between two at least substantially straight legs and wherein the other connection device has a ram with a splitting device that is designed and arranged such as to rupture said thin point by acting on the tip when the containers are coupled. In another aspect, the thin point surrounds the ram, and in a third aspect the connection devices have corresponding, similar thin points, closure elements and splitting devices. In further aspects, the connection devices are similar, and the connection devices are linearly guided.

  • Publication number: 20210179043
    Abstract: A method for functional testing of an electromechanical fill level monitoring device. In order to test the plausibility of a signal emitted by a fill level monitoring device of a first pressure medium chamber, a forced actuation of this fill level monitoring device is carried from time to time. This forced actuation is carried out in that a pressure medium delivery unit in a pressure medium circuit having the first pressure medium chamber is activated for a predefined period. This delivers the pressure medium fill level monitoring device into a second pressure medium chamber via a pressure medium connection. On the basis of the signal profile output by the fill level monitoring device, the proper operation of the fill level monitoring device is inferred in the electronic control unit.

  • Patent number: 10942090
    Abstract: To test a vehicle power braking system, a piston of a power brake pressure generator is displaced twice for a pressure build-up and in between back preferably by a longer distance. Extension of the piston travel during the second displacement is an indication of air in a cylinder of the power brake pressure generator due to an excessively low brake fluid level in a brake fluid reservoir.

  • Publication number: 20130169037
    Abstract: A power supply device, an apparatus and an assembly with the power supply device and a method for supplying power to a track element of a track-bound traffic system. The power supply device for at least one track element of the track-bound traffic has a trackside receiving device for receiving energy which is transmitted actively by electromagnetic induction by a transmitting device or a track-bound vehicle, and a trackside energy storage device for at least partial storage of the energy received by the trackside receiving device. The track element is supplied with electrical power from the trackside receiving device. The power transmission is decoupled in time from the energy transfer from the transmitting device to the trackside receiving device.

  • Publication number: 20130066522
    Abstract: A control for a steering support system for a two-wheeled vehicle is provided. The steering support system has an actuator with the aid of which a steering torque is applied to the two-wheeled vehicle. The actuator is, for example, an electric motor which cooperates with a steering tube. The control triggers the actuator in a targeted manner to effect a desired steering torque. Furthermore, various sensors are provided for detecting vehicle dynamics parameters, such as a steering angle, a steering torque, accelerations acting on the two-wheeled vehicle, or speeds of wheels of the two-wheeled vehicle. Based on the parameters detected by the sensors, the actuator may be triggered to effect a steering torque.

  • Patent number: 8315765
    Abstract: In a method for reducing the rollover risk in vehicles, at least one state variable which characterizes the transverse dynamics of the vehicle is ascertained and is used as the basis for an intervention into the steering system and the braking system which stabilizes the vehicle. A multivariable control is carried out in which two control loops are superimposed, the first control loop being based on control of the yaw rate and the second control loop being based on control of the transverse acceleration. The steering system as well as the braking system may be adjusted via the first and second control loops.
