  • Publication number: 20190329746
    Abstract: A braking system having expanded functionality, which provides the driver of a vehicle the option to manually control the clamping force of the rear brakes as desired, while keeping existing braking system functionalities. The braking system includes a manual control device, such as a hand lever assembly, and the driver is able to move the hand lever to various positions. The position of the lever corresponds to an equivalent rear hydraulic brake clamping force request. A fully retracted lever corresponds to a complete release action of the rear hydraulic brakes, and a fully actuated lever corresponds to a complete clamping of the rear hydraulic brakes. Any position in between the fully retracted and fully actuated positions corresponds to a partial apply of the rear hydraulic brakes using a predefined ratio of force to lever position.

  • Publication number: 20190184949
    Abstract: An electronic parking brake (EPB) system having expanded functionality, which provides the driver of a vehicle the option to manually control the clamping force of the EPB as desired, while keeping existing EPB functionalities. The EPB system includes a hand lever assembly, and the driver is able to move the hand lever assembly to various positions. The position of the hand lever assembly corresponds to an equivalent parking brake clamping force request. A fully retracted lever corresponds to a complete release action of the parking brake, and a fully actuated lever corresponds to a complete clamping of the parking brake. Any position in between the fully retracted and fully actuated positions corresponds to a partial apply of the parking brake using a predefined ratio of force to lever position.

  • Patent number: 10314305
    Abstract: The invention provides a liquid agrochemical composition, preferably in the form of an emulsifiable concentrate (EC), comprising a mixture of: one or more agrochemically active ingredients (in particular comprising one or more herbicides); a C1-C6 alkyl methacrylate polymer (preferably an isobutyl methacrylate polymer); and a solvent system comprising: (c1) an alcohol solvent comprising hexylene glycol (2-methyl-2,4-pentanediol), benzyl alcohol, diacetone alcohol (2-methyl-4-oxo-pentane-2-ol), isobutanol, n-pentanol, n-hexanol, n-heptanol, n-octanol, 2-ethyl-hexanol, cyclohexanol, dipropylene glycol, diethylene glycol monomethyl ether, dipropylene glycol monomethyl ether, ethylene glycol, or a mixture of two or more of these alcohols (preferably hexylene glycol); and (c2) a heavy aromatic hydrocarbon solvent. The C1-C6 alkyl methacrylate polymer generally acts as a thickener which is suitable for the defined solvent system, and which is for increasing the viscosity of the composition.

  • Patent number: 9952145
    Abstract: A radiation detector for a non-dispersive infrared gas analyzer has two detector chambers, which are surrounded by a housing and separated by a separating element permeable to infrared radiation and impermeable to gas and which can be filled with a radiation-absorbing measurement gas. A receiving element, which has a measuring system fastened therein and including a flow- or pressure-sensitive sensor, can be attached to a contact surface on an outer face of the housing. Each detector chamber is pneumatically connected to the measuring system by a channel, which extends in the housing and is open to gas. The housing of the radiation detector is modularly constructed and includes a base element, which encloses the channel, the separating element, and the measuring system fastened in the receiving element, and a first and a second outer element, each of which can be connected to the base element and surrounds a detector chamber.

  • Publication number: 20090146468
    Abstract: An improved reclining lounge chair is described, which comprises a footrest that is pivotally connected to a center seat member by a footrest attachment axle, and in which the footrest position is controlled by a footrest lift mechanism. While the lounge chair is its non-reclined upright position the footrest is oriented approximately vertical. In this approximately vertical orientation the footrest doesn't extend significantly forward of the center seat member, thus allowing an occupant easy access to the chair from the front. In its fully reclined position the footrest rotates into an approximately horizontal orientation, providing a comfortable reclined position.
