  • Publication number: 20200144012
    Abstract: The invention relates to a surge protection device with connection elements, an overvoltage protection device (ÜSE1), two contact elements (K1, K2), a slide (AS), a connection plate (B) and a force accumulator (F). The two contact elements (K1, K2) and the overvoltage protection device (ÜSE1) are encased with an electrically nonconducting material on the surface. The electrically nonconducting material leaves open a connection area (A) formed on the second contact element (K2). In a first state, the connection plate (B) is connected to the connection area (A). The slide (AS) is arranged such that it can slide on a surface of the electrically nonconducting material under the action of the force when the thermally softenable contact means softens in a second state, wherein the slide (AS) is displaced between the connection plate (B) and the connection area (A). The electrically nonconducting material is assigned a further function.

  • Patent number: 10090086
    Abstract: The invention relates to a space-saving isolating arrester, having for at least two electronic components (EB1, EB2) to be monitored, with the electronic components to be monitored being fastened to a carrier (P) using a thermally softenable fixing means, with an energy accumulator (D1,D2) being arranged on each of the electronic components which—when a thermally softenable fixing means softens—displaces the associated electronic component substantially parallel to the carrier (P), thereby disconnecting the associated electronic component, and also having a mechanically displaceable display means (ANZ), with the mechanically displaceable display means indicating that one or more of the electronic components to be monitored has been disconnected, and with the mechanically displaceable display means (ANZ) being displaced by a disconnecting electronic component.

  • Patent number: 10024634
    Abstract: A method for operating a ground-based anti-aircraft system includes providing a group of main system components containing a sensor system, a tactical operation control and an effector system. Combat target sensor data are passed from the sensor system to the tactical operation control, processed therein and passed in processed form from the tactical operation control to the effector system, using the data to combat the target. A central integration module having a converter unit and a central data distributor allows differently constructed main system components to be connected. Data from all main system components are routed to the central data distributor by the converter unit and converted therein from component protocol into system-internal data protocol, and passed from the central data distributor to one or more main system components, through the converter unit, converting the distributed data back from system-internal data protocol into component protocol.

  • Patent number: 9443689
    Abstract: The invention relates to a fuse for connection to a protective component of an overvoltage protective device. A fuse wire runs between a first cap and a second cap. In some implementations, the fuse wire may be held on the first cap by means of a soldered connection and fastened to a connection electrode. The connection electrode may be movable with respect to a fuse body and under mechanical pretension with respect to a fuse body. The fuse wire melts when acted on with a high I2t, and the soldered connection melts upon external heating by the overvoltage protective device above a specified temperature by means of the thermal connection. Electrical contact between the first cap and the connection electrode is broken via the mechanical pretension if the fuse wire or the soldered connection melt.
