  • Patent number: 10821256
    Abstract: A method and device, for enriching a gas flow with an anesthetic, include a gas mixer (1), with gas inlets (2a, 2b) and one or more gas outlets (3a, 3b), and an anesthetic dispenser (4) connected to the one or more gas outlets. The anesthetic dispenser at least partially enriches the gas flow to provide a breathing gas flow enriched with anesthetic at a patient connector (5). A control valve (7a) is arranged fluidically in series with the anesthetic dispenser (4). The gas outlet is connected to the patient connector (5) via a gas channel (8), arranged fluidically parallel to the anesthetic dispenser (4) and in which at least another control valve (7b) is arranged. A control unit (6) actuates at least one control valve as a function of a desired value for an anesthetic concentration in the breathing gas flow to change anesthetic concentration at the patient connector (5).

  • Patent number: 10682485
    Abstract: An anesthetic dispensing device (1), to which a carrier gas stream is fed for enriching with anesthetic, has the gas stream split into two partial gas streams, one of which flows through a bypass channel (7) unchanged and the other of which is fed to an evaporation chamber (9), where the partial gas stream is saturated with anesthetic. In a mixing point (6), both partial gas streams are mixed to form an anesthetic gas stream, which leaves the anesthetic dispensing device through the anesthetic gas outlet (4). A control unit (2) is provided that is configured to generate a control signal for an electric motor drive (14) for adjusting the valve opening of the valve element (15) on the basis of a concentration of the anesthetic in the anesthetic gas needed at the anesthetic gas outlet (4) and at least one temperature-specific correction factor.

  • Publication number: 20190173801
    Abstract: Described is a method for transmitting continuously created data items from an aircraft to a receiver. The data items are of a plurality of data types and each have a different priority. For each data type a live LIFO buffer and a main LIFO buffer are provided. In a regular operation mode continuously created data items are continuously stored in the main buffers. In a transmission operation mode continuously created data items are continuously stored in the live buffers, consecutive data packets are transmitted and for each data packet the data is selected from the buffers, wherein data items stored in live buffers are transmitted before data items stored in main buffers and data items of higher priorities are transmitted before data items of lower priorities. Further, a transmitter and an aircraft are described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20090274019
    Abstract: The invention provides an optical scanning apparatus for appliances for recording or reproducing information using an optical recording medium, said scanning apparatus automatically matching itself to the curvature of a curved recording medium or of a recording medium with axial runout without there being different wire diameters for the resilient support of the lens holder (LH) or other additional damping means or an additional control loop for this purpose. This object is achieved by virtue of an arrangement comprising coils and magnets being provided which has an asymmetrical magnetic field distribution which is provided for matching the orientation of a lens (L) in the optical scanning device to a curved recording medium or to any axial runout in the recording medium.

  • Patent number: 6377407
    Abstract: An optical scanning device having an improved response characteristic, for use in an apparatus for optically reading or writing information in one or more tracks on a recording medium. The object of the invention is to provide an optical scanning device which, without any electronic compensation means, very largely avoids resonance peaks and has an improved response characteristic. According to the invention, this object is achieved by a retaining plate which supports the objective lens of the scanning device via bearing elements and has at least one cutout, which separates the mounting points, in the surface which holds the bearing elements for the objective lens holder. The field of application of the invention is optical scanning devices having an improved response characteristic for use in equipment for reading or writing information on an optical recording medium, such as a CD, DVD, a CD or DVD which can be written to, or else a magneto-optical recording medium, for example.
