  • Patent number: 10773695
    Abstract: An electronically pressure-controllable braking system and methods for controlling an electronically pressure-controllable braking system. Each wheel brake of the braking system is connected respectively to at least two brake circuits, pump units and valve devices of one brake circuit are operable respectively independently of the pump units and the valve devices of the respective other brake circuit. This provides a cost-effectively and compactly designed redundant braking system, which is suitable for use in autonomously, i.e., driverlessly drivable, motor vehicles.

  • Publication number: 20200220445
    Abstract: A hydraulic actuator device for a hydraulic system filled with an electrically conductive medium, the hydraulic actuator device being situatable or being situated on and/or in the hydraulic system, and including at least one actuator module, which in each case is designed in such a way that at least a portion of the electrically conductive medium is acceleratable into at least one partial volume of the hydraulic system due to its interaction with an electrical current flow generated with the aid of the respective actuator module and/or with a magnetic field created with the aid of the respective actuator module, as a result of which a pressure build-up is creatable in the at least one partial volume of the hydraulic system.

  • Patent number: 10415553
    Abstract: A device for choking a fluid flow includes a pot-like base body, in the base of which a first passage opening is arranged, and a closing body guided axially moveably in the pot-like base body against a spring force of a spring element and having a second passage opening that forms a static choke point with a predefined fixed opening cross section. The closing body in combination with the spring element and the first passage opening forms a dynamic choke point with a dynamic opening cross section that is variably adjustable depending on a pressure difference.

  • Patent number: 9458946
    Abstract: A valve cartridge has a capsule and a valve insert, which is connected to the capsule by way of a first end and has a valve body with a main valve seat at the other end. A plunger is movably guided within the valve cartridge, it being possible for the plunger to move against the force of a return spring and the plunger having a closing element with a sealing element that interacts with the main valve seat of the valve body in a sealing manner to provide a sealing function. A corresponding solenoid valve has a valve cartridge of this kind. A magnetic damping assembly has a permanent magnet and an electrical conductor which is arranged in the magnetic field of the permanent magnet and is coupled to the moving plunger and can be moved substantially perpendicular to the magnetic field.
