  • Patent number: 11364634
    Abstract: A method for producing or assembling a product which includes at least two components, for example a motor vehicle or a motor vehicle module, by at least two fixing parts. The first fixing part is formed as a female part and the second fixing part is formed as a male part. The components disposed at a processing station and the first fixing part are measured by a measuring device, for example by a stationary camera or a camera fastened on a first or a second manipulator or photogrammetry bar having three cameras, and a deviation from a target geometry or target position is determined, and a corrected target position of the second fixing part is calculated on the basis of the determined deviation, such that the second fixing part is joined together with the first fixing part by the first manipulator and the product is thus produced.

  • Publication number: 20210382044
    Abstract: A method for measuring the presence of calprotectin (S100A8/A) heterodimer in a biological sample using a particle-enhanced turbidimetric immunoassay (PETIA) based on monoclonal antibodies. The method can be adapted on automated standard analyzers and provides a reliable clinical measurement of calprotectin in faecal samples and extracts. The method is comparable to commerical two-site sandwich ELISA. The disclosed method counters spontaneous agglutination caused by calcium ions and low-molecular weight calcium-binding S100 proteins as observed with conventional PETIAs. The method can be used for measuring the presence of human calprotectin in stool, urine, serum, plasma, synovial liquid and other body liquids. Metrological traceability and high commutability with conventional immunoassays (ELISA) has been shown despite of different measurement principles used.

  • Patent number: 11156491
    Abstract: A sensor assembly that includes a sealed housing. A printed circuit board assembly including a first section that includes processing circuitry is disposed within the sealed housing and a second section that includes detection circuitry extends from the sealed housing. The sensor assembly also includes a conductive target movably coupled to the second section of the printed circuit board to vary net voltage of the detection circuitry as the conductive target moves along the second section to provide an output signal. The processing circuitry detects the output signal and converts the output signal into a linear representation of position of the conductive target in relation to the second section.

  • Patent number: 10745811
    Abstract: In a method for cathodically protecting and/or passivating a metal section in an ionically conductive material such as steel reinforcement in concrete or mortar, an impressed current or sacrificial anode communicates ionic current to the metal section and a storage component of electrical energy which can be a cell, battery or capacitor is provided as a component of the anode. The storage component can have replacement energy introduced by re-charging or replacing the component from an outside supply. Typically the cell or storage capacitor has an outer case which carries an anode material as an integral outer component. A mechanical clamp is provided to attach the assembly to a rebar. A current limiter is provided which prevents excess current draining the supply.
