  • Publication number: 20210134145
    Abstract: A remote-control arrangement for remotely controlled objects, such as in particular lifting systems and/or working devices, has a handheld transmitter which has a housing on which multiple adjustable-position operating elements for the input of control commands are held, and in which remote control electronics are accommodated, by means of which control commands input via the operating elements can be converted into signals, which can be emitted to control the objects, and a display held on the housing for displaying control-relevant information. The display is formed by a computer display of a portable computer produced separately from the transmitter, and a standard interface, via which the portable computer can be detachably connected to the remote-control electronics of the transmitter, is provided on the housing.

  • Patent number: 8050016
    Abstract: Disclosed is a control device, particularly a remote control for industrial appliances, comprising a housing for accommodating the control electronics and at least one control element. The housing (10) is formed by a wall part (11) and holding elements (13, 14) which close the two faces of the wall part (11) and can be interconnected by means of bars (17, 18, 19). Preferably the holding elements are molded plastic parts while the wall part (11) and/or the bars (17, 18, 19) are profiled metal parts. The housing can thus be assembled from simple components, i.e. a wall part and holding elements that close the faces, as basic modules which can be expanded in many different ways, allowing an individually configured control device to be designed like a module or kit. Various requirement levels regarding mechanical stability, durability, service life, production costs, etc. can be met by adequately selecting the materials.

  • Patent number: 7861689
    Abstract: A method for controlling an internal combustion engine with at least two cylinders in the case of irregular running caused by combustion problems has the following steps: measurement of a segment time of a first cylinder during a first time interval T1 in the sequence of operations of the internal combustion engine, with a corresponding first signal being transmitted as a first actual value to a control, sensing of pressure fluctuations in the second cylinder during a second time interval T2 in the sequence of operations of the internal combustion engine, with a corresponding second signal being transmitted as a second actual value to a control and changing of operating parameters of the at least one cylinder by means of the control on the basis of the first and second signal, when the first and the second actual value each deviate from setpoint values stored in the control.
