This color surface 922, however, no longer runs as the markings in the Fig. 12 to 14 continuously or gradually increasing from front to back, but takes from its beginning to its end, the entire width of the support part 911 a.
  • Fig. 16 shows a trained as a cable fastener or cable tie auxiliary construction element 1010. The auxiliary construction element 1010 has a base part 1011, to which the cable attachment laterally a toothed belt 1017 is arranged, which can be inserted into a lock 1018 and fixed there. From the base part 1011 also rises a sleeve part 1012 which has a passage opening 1013 through which a fastener can be passed through to attach the auxiliary construction element 1010 to a substrate. The sleeve part 1012 also has an abutment 1014, on which in the attached state of the auxiliary construction element 1010, the fastener z. B. attacks with a head bottom.
  • On an outer circumferential surface 1016 of the sleeve part 1012, ribs 1024 are arranged, which run essentially parallel to a longitudinal axis 1015 of the sleeve part 1012. The outer peripheral surface 1016 and the ribs 1024 form a first holding portion 1021 of the auxiliary construction element 1010. This holding portion 1021 is in the direction of the longitudinal axis 1015 further from the base portion 1011, or is axially higher than an annular second holding portion 1022, the radial spaced apart from and substantially concentric with the first retaining portion 1021 and the longitudinal axis 1015 of the base portion 1011 1. This holding section 1022 has a plurality of segments 1025 formed as circular wall sections, on which radially outer ribs 1026 are arranged, which extend coaxially to the longitudinal axis 1015. Randlich on the base part 1011 is also still an annular third holding portion 1023 arranged, which is formed by an annular wall. The height of the third holding portion 1023 above the base part 1011 is slightly smaller than that of the second holding portion 1022. The holding portions 1021, 1022, 1023 thus protrude all at a certain distance from each other from the base part 1011 or the soil formed by this.
  • For example, the diameter or the height of the holding sections 1021, 1022, 1023, the number, the angle or the shape of the ribs 1024 and / or further geometric features of the auxiliary construction element 1010 or its components are to be detected features of the auxiliary construction element 1010.
  • Fig. 17 shows a fastening device 1100 of a first item not shown on a likewise not shown second object in a side view. The device 1100 is basically fixed in a mounting direction 1110 to a ground or the like. It has for this purpose an abutment designed as a head 1120 for supporting the first object in the fastening direction, the head 1120 itself having a contact surface 1130 for abutting the head 1120 on the first object. The head 1120 is formed spherically curved, so that the contact surface 1130 is convex. In non-illustrated embodiments, the head and / or the contact surface are flat.
  • Furthermore, the device 1100 comprises a plurality of support elements 1140 for supporting the first article transversely to the attachment direction 1110, which project from the edge 1125 of the head 1120 inclined away from the contact surface 1130 relative to the attachment direction 1110. The support elements 1140 are formed as knob-shaped projections and each have a substantially conical outer surface. Furthermore, the device 1100 has a shank 1150, which protrudes centrally from the head 1120 in the fastening direction 1110, so that the support elements 1140 are inclined towards the shank. At its end opposite the head 1120, the shaft 1150 has a point 1160 which is provided with reinforcing ribs 1170. The transition 1155 from the head 1120 to the shaft 1150 is frusto-conical.
  • Detecting features of the device 1100 include, for example, the inner or outer diameter of the head 1120, the diameter or length of the shaft 1150, the geometric shape of the tip 1160, the number, size or geometric shape of the support members 1140 and / or in non-illustrated embodiments the number, arrangement or shape of breaks in the head 1120.
  • In non-illustrated embodiments of a driving-in device, the detected consumable is a driving piston and / or a piston brake. In other embodiments, not shown, the image recognition verifies the presence of a geometry that is needed for the function of a set failure detection, to avoid that consumables are used, which override the setting failure detection.
  • According to an embodiment, not shown, the tool comprises a drill. The consumable is then for example, a drill or a battery.
  • According to a further embodiment, not shown, the tool comprises a screwdriver. The consumable is then, for example, a screwdriver bit, a screw or a battery.
  • According to a further embodiment not shown, the tool comprises a grinding device, preferably an angle grinder. The consumable is then, for example, a grinding wheel.
  • According to a further embodiment, not shown, the tool comprises a saw, preferably a jigsaw or saber saw. The consumable is then, for example, a saw blade.
  • According to another embodiment, not shown, the tool comprises a vacuum cleaner. The consumable is then, for example, a filter.
  • The invention has been explained with reference to different hand-held tools. It is understood that the invention is also suitable for other applications. Preferably, the image recognition serves to identify features which are provided for this purpose on a consumable article. Alternatively and also preferably, the image recognition serves to identify features that are inherent in the technology or inherent to the respective consumable, ie that are present anyway.
