  • Patent number: 10508564
    Abstract: A bearing housing for an exhaust gas turbocharger may include a bearing housing cover arranged on a bearing housing wall. The bearing housing cover may include a penetrating rotation-symmetrical sealing recess with a centre axis and may have a locating surface facing the bearing housing wall and radially extending from the centre axis. The bearing housing may include a sealing bush arranged in at least one region of the sealing recess. The sealing bush may have a stop surface arranged opposite the locating surface and may include a penetrating shaft recess disposed rotation-symmetrical relative to the centre axis. The bearing housing cover may further include an at least partly circulating groove disposed on the locating surface radially spaced from the centre axis. The groove may include a drainage region arranged below the centre axis and extending from the centre axis radially to an outside.

  • Patent number: 10393169
    Abstract: A hydrodynamic plain bearing having a stator and a rotor rotatable with respect to the stator, a rotor bearing surface being located opposite a counter-surface of the stator in order to generate hydrodynamic pressure. The rotor bearing surface and/or the counter-surface constitutes in a section view, in the context of a section along and through the rotation axis, a continuous bearing contour that is constituted from at least two contour segments. The contour segments are suitable for generating hydrodynamic load capacity in a radial and axial direction. The contour segments are led into one another, by at least one transition segment, in such a way that hydrodynamic load capacity is generatable via the contour segments and the transition segment. The plain bearing is embodied as a multiple-surface plain bearing having two or more lubrication wedges in the region of the contour segments and of the transition segment.

  • Patent number: 10159020
    Abstract: When handing off a multi-mode patient monitoring device (PMD) (28) between radio access technology (RAT) networks, a serving access point (AP) (12, 16, 72) with which a communication link is established by the PMD (28) over a first RAT network (RAT-1) to permit the PMD to communicate with a hospital IP network (18) via the serving AP (12, 16, 72). A scanning interface (14, 54, 74, 104) collects information regarding other available RAT networks (e.g., RAT-2 , RAT-3, etc) and candidate APs therein. If the RAT-1 communication quality of service falls below a predetermined threshold level, the serving AP (12, 16, 72) delivers information regarding the candidate APs (22, 24, 26) and their RAT networks to the PMD (28). Delivery of the candidate network/AP information is performed using a beacon signal continuously or periodically emitted from the serving AP (12, 16, 72), or upon request by the PMD (28). The PMD (28) selects a candidate AP (22, 24, 26) as a target AP, and initiates a handover to the target AP.

  • Patent number: 9554706
    Abstract: A patient monitor includes a plurality of monitoring devices which collect data about a patient. An evaluation unit determines the patient's condition from the collected data and generates an alarm if the patient's condition warrants notifying an appropriate medical responder. A communication unit which transmits the alarm to a access point over a hospital Internet protocol (IP) network, the communication device includes a first transmitter for transmitting the alarm using a primary link and a second transmitter for transmitting the alarm using a secondary link in response to the transmission using the primary link failing.

  • Patent number: 9338583
    Abstract: When monitoring a patient in a healthcare environment, a location of a battery-powered mobile aggregator (MA) sensor (22), which is mounted on a patient with one or more other patient-mounted sensors (12, S1, S2, S3), is monitored. The MA (22) maintains a personal area network (PAN) (24) for the sensors (12, S1, S2, S3) and wirelessly transmits signals from patient mounted sensors (12, S1, S2, S3) to a wired network (18). When the MA (22) comes within range of a mains-powered fixed aggregator (FA) (16), the MA (22) is informed of the availability of the FA (16), transfers patient data communication duties to the FA (16), and shuts down its PAN to conserve battery power. If the patient moves out of range of the FA (16), then the MA (22) regenerates the PAN (24) and resumes wireless patient data transmission.

  • Patent number: 8345656
    Abstract: In a wireless communication channel, the time per a service interval is distributed among multiple data services. The data services have been allocated airtime quotas in order to comply with their QoS requirements. These airtime quotas are scaled by a factor that is the ratio between, on the one hand, the time available per service interval for accommodating data of these services and, on the other hand, the total of the airtime quotas. This allows the services to use more airtime in case not the entire service interval has been allocated.
