  • Publication number: 20190199342
    Abstract: A method includes monitoring a load path voltage and an operating parameter of the transistor device; operating the transistor device in a normal mode when the operating parameter is below a threshold associated with the operating parameter, where operating the transistor device in the normal mode includes operating the transistor device in one of an on-state or an off-state based on a drive signal; and operating the transistor device in a fault mode upon detecting a fault based on comparing the operating parameter with the threshold. Operating the transistor device in the fault mode includes switching off the transistor device, operating the transistor device in the on-state includes adjusting the threshold in accordance with a first characteristic curve dependent on the load path voltage, and operating the transistor device in the off-state includes adjusting the threshold according to a second characteristic curve different from the first characteristic curve.

  • Publication number: 20190187463
    Abstract: A hermetic seal between an optical element and a metal mount or housing using a fluoropolymer. The fluoropolymer is dispersed along the interior edge of the metal mount. The metal mount and fluoropolymer are then heated to a temperature exceeding the melting point of the fluoropolymer. Once heated the optical element is pressed into the metal mount and allowed to cool. The metal mount, optical element and thickness of fluoropolymer are sized to provide an interference fit between the metal mount and optical element.

  • Publication number: 20180322664
    Abstract: An adaptive method for generating CT image data is described. In the method, projection measurement data of an examination region of an examination object is acquired. Furthermore, uncorrected image data of the examination region is generated. Artifact-affected subregions of the examination region are determined on the basis of at least one part of the uncorrected image data. An artifact-reduced image reconstruction is carried out in the artifact-affected subregions of the examination region. Only artifact-reduced subimage data of the artifact-affected subregions is generated. Finally, artifact-reduced image data of the entire examination region is generated by combining at least one part of the uncorrected image data and the artifact-reduced subimage data. A reconstruction device is also described. Moreover, a computed tomography system is described.

  • Patent number: 9756479
    Abstract: A system and method for calibrating the location and orientation of an electronic device, including an electronic data device having a processor, permanent memory, temporary memory, program loading means, a visual display and display subsystem, user input devices, a motion detection subsystem, an orientation detection subsystem, and a geolocation subsystem. The electronic device is programmed with instructions that, when executed, cause the electronic device to visually display a virtual representation of a user-selected physical space on the electronic visual display and to display a position indicator corresponding to an initial location and orientation of the electronic data device in the user-selected physical space, and thereafter to adjust and correct the location according to either user manual inputs or movement of the electronic data device in the physical space.

  • Publication number: 20170114198
    Abstract: Multilayer prepregs are formed by stacking layers of unidirectional prepregs in which continuous reinforcing fibers are aligned in a single direction. The unidirectional prepregs are made by impregnating aligned tows of a reinforcing fiber with a solid thermosetting resin that softens at a temperature below its cure temperature. The layers of the stack are bonded together by softening and then re-cooling the resin portion of the individual prepreg layers. The multilayer prepreg is then molded and cured to form a composite part.
