||PCT/DE2014/200078||SCHAEFFLER TECHNOLOGIES GMBH & CO. KG||RABER, Christoph|
The invention relates to an actuating device for a clutch, particularly for motor vehicles, comprising a clutch pedal, which is operatively connected to a master cylinder having a piston movable along a first longitudinal axis. Upon actuation of the piston, the master cylinder, via a pressure line, provides an actuating pressure for actuating the clutch. According to the invention, the clutch pedal can actuate an actuating element having at least one curved path, and the piston of the master cylinder is operatively connected to the curved path of the actuating element and can be actuated by a variation of the curved path.

|PCT/DE2014/200000||BÜHLER MOTOR GMBH||PETERREINS, Thomas|
The invention relates to a centrifugal pump having an impeller wheel which forms an integral component with a permanently magnetic external rotor of an electronically commutated direct-current motor, said integral component being mounted on a static axle, which axle is fastened at one side in a pump head that forms a pump housing part and at the other side in a housing part, which forms a partition between the permanently magnetic external rotor and a stator, of the direct-current motor, having a central bearing support tube which is arranged around an axis of rotation of the permanently magnetic external rotor on that side of the impeller wheel which faces away from the pump head, which bearing support tube extends into a stator chamber, and having a centre of mass of the integral component composed of impeller wheel and permanently magnetic external rotor. A problem addressed by the invention is that of providing a centrifugal pump of the stated type which is of the simplest possible construction, in which the rotatable component composed of impeller wheel and external rotor is mounted in a robust manner, in which no vibrations arise as a result of oscillating movements or imbalances, and which thus does not lead to vibrations and generation of noise. Furthermore, it is sought for the weight of the components and the accuracy demands with regard to the balancing of the rotatable component to be minimized. Said problem is solved according to the invention by means of the characterizing part of claim 1.

|PCT/DE2014/000059||FORSCHUNGSZENTRUM JÜLICH GMBH||MONKENBUSCH, Michael|
The invention relates to a method for measuring the intensity of a beam with little influencing thereof. In this case, a target material situated in the beam path of the primary beam is exerted by the primary beam to emit secondary radiation. The intensity of said secondary radiation is measured by a detector arranged outside the beam path of the primary beam. It has been recognized that, as a result of the spatial separation of target material and detector, firstly a high accuracy and efficiency of the measurement and secondly little influencing of the primary beam are no longer conflicting aims. Any material that is additionally introduced into the beam path of the primary beam influences the primary beam and possibly impairs the usability thereof for the actual application. By virtue of the fact that the detector now no longer need to be arranged in said beam path, the influencing of the primary beam is advantageously minimized. The freedom in the positioning of the detector is all the greater, the less directionally the secondary radiation is emitted. As a result of the arrangement of the detector outside the beam path of the primary beam, it is advantageously also possible to adapt the sensitivity of the measurement, that is to say the measurement range, without intervention in the beam path of the primary beam. For this purpose, it is merely necessary to make the detector less sensitive to the secondary radiation.
