Abstract (en)

The track has a longitudinal stator linear drive with at least two parallel stators and a number of bearers carrying stator sections for making straight and curved track sections with straight stator end packets (6a,6f;7a,7f) and straight inner packets (6b-6e,7b-7e) that can be laid in polygon arrangements in curved sections of track. Different ideal lengths are combined so as to minimize gaps between end packets. An Independent claim is also included for a kit for making a track for a magnetic levitation train and for a method of manufacturing a track.

Abstract (de)

Der Fahrweg enthält eine Vielzahl von längs einer Trasse angeordneten, zur Bildung von geraden und gekrümmten Fahrwegsabschnitten bestimmten Trägern (1) und an den Trägern (1) montierte Statorabschnitte, die aus geraden Statorendpaketen (6a,f;7a,f) und zwischen diesen angeordneten, ebenfalls geraden, mittleren Statorpaketen (6b-e;7b-e) zusammengesetzt sind, die im Bereich der gekrümmten Fahrwegabschnitte unter Bildung von äußeren und inneren Statorabschnitten (6,7) nach Art von Polygonzügen verlegt und durch Spalte (23,24) voneinander getrennt sind. Die Statorendpakete (6a,f;7a,f) und die mittleren Statorpakete (6b-e;7b-e) weisen, bezogen auf eine zwischen den beiden Raumkurvenabschnitten liegende, gedachte Raumkurve (2), eine vorgewählte Zahn/Nut-Teilung (16) sowie unterschiedliche "ideelle" Längen auf, die sich um Bruchteile einer Zahn/Nut-Teilung (16) voneinander unterscheiden. Die mittleren Statorpakete (6b-e;7b-e) sind in wenigstens einem äußeren oder inneren Statorabschnitt (6,7) unter Berücksichtigung ihrer unterschiedlichen "ideellen" Länge so miteinander kombiniert sind, daß ein "materieller" Gesamtspalt zwischen den Statorendpaketen (6a,f;7a,f) und den mittleren Statorpaketen (6b-e;7b-e) dieses Statorabschnitts (6,7) die kleinste mögliche Breite aufweist. <IMAGE>
