  • Acoustic signals for electronics

    Acoustic signals for electronics Acoustic signals for electronics

    A2017-007 | Alexander Strauß

    The invention is based on acoustic signals that can be generated by electronics when powered. The sounds are generated by components which are required for normal operation but not intended for sound generation.

  • Low-Capacitance Design for Operation of LEDs

    G2016-016 | Uwe Nieberlein, Günther Köninger

    Glow effects may occur on LED (Light Emitting Diode) light devices operated in an AC network – especially with sinusoidal voltage supply – when in "off" state, i.e. when the light devices are switched off and therefore should be dark.

  • TC Rotary Knob with slider Sensor

    TC Rotary Knob with slider Sensor TC Rotary Knob with slider Sensor

    A2015-009 | Mathew Schwind

    A rotary knob utilizing capacitive sensing to detect the movement of an indexed ring is suggested. Consumers are interested in a knob with an integrated user interface. Preferably this knob shall be rotating. Further a knob with metal look and feel is preferred, as it gives a worthy appearance.

  • Fiber Optic Knob for a front panel

    Fiber Optic Knob for a front panel Fiber Optic Knob for a front panel

    A2017-016 | Piotr Kijewski

    This idea suggests an optical transfer system. The optical transfer system transmits an image of a display located behind electronics of a front panel to the surface of a knob located on the front panel.

  • Pitch-washing-controlled washing machine

    A2017-006 | Georg Arnold

    A device is proposed by means of which the slope of a washing machine drum can be adjusted.

  • Connector with integrated temperature detection

    Connector with integrated temperature detection Connector with integrated temperature detection

    A2015-015 | Andreas Brauchle, Simon Bihler

    A connector which is not placed correctly on a contact heats up and may catch fire. This risk is particularly high when high currents flow as is the case, for example, in electric-motor electronics.

  • sensor network for terrain surveillance

    sensor network for terrain surveillance sensor network for terrain surveillance

    B2017-011 | Andre Selz

    The proposed technical solution concerns a sensor network consisting of a variety of sensors for surveillance-relevant parameters, which can be placed in a terrain and are self-networking.

  • Appliance into special operation modes

    Appliance into special operation modes Appliance into special operation modes

    A2018-025 | Sascha Laue, Thomas Zodel, Tobias Hartmann

    This invention solves the problem of putting an appliance into demo mode, without the risk that the customer enables this mode by accident. Further it transfers and updates demo mode data to the appliance.
