  • Publication number: 20080289602
    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.

  • Publication number: 20070222135
    Abstract: A device for processing and for transporting flat mail items such as documents and/or letters inserted into envelopes, samples, cards, etc., includes a transport route, formed by transport rolls (5, 6, 7) of a transport mechanism (3), one end of this route being configured to load a separation unit (9) with mail items (2) for individual processing. The device includes a separation unit (9), which is designed with a drive roll (6), supported rotatably on a horizontal axis of rotation and extending transversely to the transport direction. The drive roll acts frictionally on the bottom surface of the mail item (2) and cooperates with a queuing mechanism (11), which is installed above (6) and offset from the drive roll in the downstream direction to hold back excess mail items.

  • Patent number: 6980121
    Abstract: A method for operating a radio remote control system having a transmitting unit and a receiving unit, composed of: following the termination of a radio connection between the transmitting unit and the receiving unit, modifying at least one transmitting or receiving parameter of the transmitting unit or the receiving unit with respect to a standard value in such a way that the establishment of a new radio connection is only possible if the distance between the transmitting unit and the receiving unit does not exceed a predetermined value; and following the establishment of a new radio contact with the modified parameter in effect, resetting the respective parameter to the standard value.

  • Publication number: 20050249548
    Abstract: A plastic joint for a selector pin that can be moved around at least one swiveling axis comprises an inner, first joint element and an outer, second joint element for mounting in a device. The first joint element includes a first plastic material with axially opposite end sections, the second joint element includes a second plastic material with borings that lie in the swiveling axis in which the end sections are held, forming the swiveling axis. The joint elements are spanned by a plastic sealing element as a seal. The joint elements can be produced individually or as a unit via injection molding processes.

  • Publication number: 20040185843
    Abstract: A remote controlled industrial equipment, e.g., a construction unit with at least one transmitter, which includes at least a second receiver that is operable parallel to a first receiver. The receivers are arranged with parts of the industrial equipment widely displaced apart from one another such that a control connection from the transmitter to at least one of the receivers can be established for the purpose of converting control signals of the transmitter into working movements of the industrial equipment. The receivers can therefore establish a continuous control connection up to the respective receiver that finally controls the working units of the industrial equipment, whereby simple and safe control remains ensured even under unfavourable external conditions.

  • Publication number: 20040156186
    Abstract: A control element for a device, specifically a push-button or switch, is provided on at least part of its visible surface with a luminescent substance, which is admixed to the synthetic material of the control element. The luminescent substance provides, over a certain period of time, a luminous density with decreasing intensity, which compared to areas in the vicinity and/or applied symbols, produces an at least sufficiently visible contrast in order to make the control element stand out recognizably.

  • Publication number: 20030210154
    Abstract: A process for the control of a plurality of industrial, construction or mobile hydraulic machines, such as cranes, travelers and similar machines, by means of n remote control units (S1 . . . Sn), allocates the remote control units to k concentrators (K1 . . . Kk), whereby the number (k) of concentrators is smaller than the number (n) of remote control units. Preferably, only a single concentrator (K) is provided. The concentrator (K) provides the signals from the remote control units with a suitable address and transmits them via a common data network, such as the power grid (AC), to which the concentrator (K) and control devices (ST1 . . . STm) for the m power units of the industrial machines to be controlled are connected in such a way that a signal is recognized by its address and converted into the control signal for activation of the respective power unit.

  • Patent number: 6624807
    Abstract: A manual control device composed of: a housing; a joystick; and a joint supporting the joystick in the housing to enable the joystick to pivot about two mutually orthogonal axes relative to the housing. The joint is an elastic molded plastic part composed of an interior portion secured to the joystick, a peripheral portion secured to the housing and a connecting portion extending between, and connecting, the interior portion and the peripheral portion. The interior portion has the form of a first cylinder and the peripheral portion has the form of a second cylinder, the first and second cylinders being concentric with one another when the joystick is in a neutral position. The connecting portion has a frustoconical shape when the joystick is in the neutral position and is stressed when the joystick is pivoted away from the neutral position.

  • Patent number: 6545607
    Abstract: A remote control system, particularly for remotely controlling industrial equipment, has a sensor that detects the operator's safety-relevant medical data and transmits them as a control signal to a control circuit in a transmitter or receiver. The control circuit triggers a predefinable control sequence when the value of the control signal exceeds or falls below at least one predefinable value. A malfunction, especially of the “human component” of the total system, can be reliably detected as soon as it becomes safety relevant, i.e., as soon as there is a danger that the operator might no longer be able to control the industrial equipment properly and reliably with the remote control system.
