  • Patent number: 10703849
    Abstract: Carbon-linked 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) oligomers contain at least one first HMF unit and one second HMF unit. The first and second HMF units are linked by a carbon-carbon bond with involvement of an aromatically bound carbon atom at position 3 or 4 of the furan ring of the first HMF unit. The HMF oligomers may be used as reactive carbonyl compounds in the manufacture of thermally curable resins on the basis of phenolic compounds and/or aminoplastic forming agents as well as in the manufacture of wood composite products.

  • Publication number: 20190185020
    Abstract: A method for warning about a wrong-way drive situation for a vehicle. The method includes at least reading in a wrong-way drive signal by an interface to a wrong-way drive detection unit. The wrong-way drive signal represents the wrong-way drive situation. The method also includes evaluating the wrong-way drive signal to determine a piece of role information. The piece of role information represents a role of the vehicle with respect to the wrong-way drive situation. The method furthermore includes generating at least one warning signal to warn about the wrong-way drive situation using the piece of role information. The at least one warning signal represents at least one role-dependent warning message. Moreover, the method includes providing the at least one warning signal at an interface to at least one output unit for outputting the at least one warning signal in the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10138820
    Abstract: An excentric pin for an electronic throttle control assembly, which is used to adjust the default position of at least one spring used to control the position of a valve plate, where the valve plate is located in an opening of a housing in the electronic control assembly. The excentric pin is used to adjust the default angle of the valve plate to have an angular tolerance of +/?0.10°. The excentric pin is slideably pressed into an aperture of the housing of the electronic throttle control assembly, and turned using some type of driver. The electronic throttle control assembly may be a one-spring design, or a two-spring design, where the two-spring design requires only one spring pin and the excentric pin. Also, the excenter pin may be used to adjust the position of the sector gear, e.g., function as the lower mechanical stop to provide a minimum opening angle for low leakage, and a minimum opening angle to avoid throttle plate corking into opening of the housing.

  • Patent number: 9657650
    Abstract: A throttle body assembly includes a housing defining a throttle bore with a throttle plate in the bore and mounted on a shaft. An electric motor has a pinion gear. A gear assembly includes an intermediate gear and a sector gear and transfers rotational drive from the electric motor to the throttle plate. Biasing structure biases the sector gear and thus the shaft to cause the throttle plate to close the throttle bore defining a closed position thereof. When the motor is energized, rotation of the pinion gear causes rotation of the gear assembly, against the bias on the sector gear, thereby causing rotation of the shaft to move the throttle plate from the closed position to an open position. A position sensor assembly determines a position of the plate.
