  • Publication number: 20210001737
    Abstract: A plug-in system for a wired charging process for charging an electrical energy store of an at least partially electrically operated device includes a charging socket positioned on the electrically operated device. The plug-in system has a charging device with a charging plug which can be extended towards the charging socket using a translational movement. The charging socket has a cover for protecting contact parts of the charging socket from environmental influences. The charging plug is designed to produce, as a result of the translational movement, one or more reclosable contact part openings in the cover, through which openings contact parts of the charging plug can be guided during the translational movement in order to form pairs of galvanically conductive connections to the corresponding contact parts of the charging socket.

  • Patent number: 10853094
    Abstract: In a distributed data processing and deduplication system comprising a plurality of clients and servers, a traditional client library on each client is replaced by a small kernel library and a separate client library which may be either on the client or on a separate server. The kernel library receives an initialization API call from an application on the client, determines the appropriate version of the client library for that application, and directs the initialization call to that client library. The client library returns to the kernel library a list of function pointers to code that implements functions called by the application, and dynamically redirects function API calls from the application to the code. By storing the client library at one central location and updating that one version for changes to hardware and software, multiple client systems may be updated automatically upon initialization to use the new version of the client library.

  • Patent number: 10839704
    Abstract: Simulation of a complex system involves representing the complex system in a plurality of simulation building blocks, each simulation building block is associated with a subsystem of the complex system. Each simulation building block includes at least one client-side simulation component and a server-side simulation component. During the simulation a user interaction is detected by a client-side simulation component, the complex system is simulated in server-side simulation components on the basis of the user interaction. Simulation data for the subsystem is generated by the server-side simulation components, and the subsystem is represented by the corresponding client-side components based on the simulation data.

  • Publication number: 20200106235
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for maintaining the synchronism of a Fourier Domain Mode Locked (FDML) laser, the FDML laser comprising at least one dispersion-compensated resonator with at least one variably wavelength-selective optical filter, the laser light circulating in the resonator at a circulation frequency, and the wavelength selectivity of the filter being repeatedly modified at a syntonising rate, the FDML laser being synchronous when the syntonising rate is an integral multiple of the circulation frequency.

  • Publication number: 20200071016
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a container with a side wall of plastic encloses a container volume. Horizontally oriented grooves spaced vertically apart from one another are formed in the side wall, and the grooves include first grooves for stiffening the side wall. The first grooves have a first groove depth and are configured such that a projection protruding into the enclosed container volume is formed in the inner surface of the side wall. The grooves also include second grooves having a second groove depth. The first groove depth is greater than the second groove depth. The first and second grooves are arranged such that at least one second groove is in each case arranged in the vertical direction between two first grooves. The subvolumes enclosed by two horizontal planes, which are defined by two adjacent grooves, and the side wall are in each case identical.

  • Publication number: 20190226989
    Abstract: An apparatus and methods for high-speed non-linear spectrally encoded multi-photon imaging that are particularly suited for use in two photon fluorescence and fluorescence lifetime imaging. The system is capable of optical image compression and scale invariant digital zoom. A wavelength agile laser with digitally synthesized electro-optic modulation in a master oscillator-power amplifier configuration is combined with spectral encoding to eliminate the speed limitations of inertial scanning. The technique for fast two photon fluorescent imaging with simultaneous lifetime imaging independently detects the location, amplitude and lifetime of fluorescent emission by synthesizing a sequential excitation beam via digital electro-optic modulation of a quasi-CW swept source followed by time encoded detection. For fluorescent imaging, spectral and temporal mappings are employed separately, with quasi-CW spectral encoding used for pumping and time encoding for constructing the image at fluorescence wavelength.
