Abstract: A rotation detecting device for vehicle speedometers includes a housing, a magnetic induction device, and a magnetized rotor near the magnetic induction device. The rotor is connected through a coupling to a rotation source. A braking device forms a magnetic circuit between one end surface of the rotor and the housing, and brings the rotor into pressure contact with the housing by a magnetic attraction force generated in the magnetic circuit. Accordingly, a stable and proper braking torque can be applied against rotor vibration, to prevent a false output signal while idling. Furthermore, the amount of wear of a bearing for rotatably supporting a rotating shaft of the rotor can be reduced to improve durability of the rotation detecting device by reducing the braking torque during high-speed rotation of the rotor.

Abstract: The invention relates to a method and apparatus for measuring the coordinates of a survey point. The apparatus uses a reflecting mirror at the survey point, a tachymeter for transmitting light to the reflecting mirror and for receiving light reflected from the reflecting mirror, first calculating means for calculating the coordinate values of two positions of the reflecting mirror, and second calculating means for calculating a coordinate value of the survey point from the coordinate values of the two reflecting mirror positions. In operation, the tachymeter transmits light to the reflecting mirror at the survey point wherein the reflecting mirror is locatable at two points present on a line passing through the survey point and which are separated from the survey point by predetermined distances.
Abstract: The present invention relates to novel optically active isoxazole derivatives represented by general formula: ##STR1## which are useful as intermediates for synthesis of prostaglandin and a process for producing the same as well as novel aldehyde compounds represented by general formula: ##STR2## which are intermediates for preparing the compounds [XI] described above and a process for preparation thereof. In the compounds shown by these formulae, R.sup.1 represents an alkyl group or a cycloalkyl group which may have an alkoxy group or a group shown by --Ra--A--B (wherein Ra is an alkyl group; A is a hetero atom or an single bond; and B is an aromatic or hetero ring which may have a substituent(s)); and R.sup.2 and R.sup.3, which may be the same or different, each represents an aralkyl group, a silyl group or an acyl group.
Abstract: A temperature control apparatus for a machine tool includes four temperature sensors for detecting a reference temperature, outlet temperature of heat transfer fluid at an outlet of a heat exchanger, and temperatures of the heat transfer fluid at both inlet and an outlet of a machine tool element having a heat generating source. The four temperature sensors are arranged to constitute a differential temperature detecting means that activates control means to control temperature of the heat transfer fluid from the heat exchanger so as to minimize both deviations of heat transfer fluid temperature and steady-state deviations of machine tool body temperature.
Abstract: The present invention relates to an air-entraining adjuvant.This adjuvant comprises animal whole blood and/or cruor serving as the actual air-entraining agent, and also comprises blood plasma as a stabilizer for the entrained air, preferably in pulverulent or atomized form. The proportion of blood plasma in the adjuvant is advantageously from 15 to 25% by weight. The said adjuvant also contains dispersants of the bentonite type and/or aluminomagnesium clay type.This gives an adjuvant having an exceptional air-entraining capacity with a high stability; it is easy to work with as any type of mixer can be used.
Abstract: Disclosed is an organic nonlinear optical material comprising a compound having a conjugate main chain in the molecule and having donor groups D and acceptor groups A added onto the conjugate main chain in the sequence of . . . , D, D, A, A, D, D, . . . , in which the distance between adjacent D's and the distance between adjacent A's are shorter than the distance between adjacent D and A with respect to the distance between the atoms on the main chain to which the respective groups are bonded.In this organic nonlinear optical material, since electron wave functions are modified, enhanced quadratic and cubic nonlinear optical effects can be attained. Accordingly, the organic nonlinear optical material can be advantageously utilized for an electro-optical element and an optical-to-optical element.

Abstract: A liquid painting instrument according to the present invention includes a neck portion of a cross-sectionally noncircular configuration provided on a wall having a passage hole that allows the neck member of the inner shaft to pass therethrough at a certain position in a circumferential phase while preventing the neck member from passing therethrough at other positions in the circumferential phase. The control wall is located at a position in front of the neck portion in the unknocked state. Projections are also provided on the front face of the neck member; each has a cam face that slides on the rear face of the control wall so as to displace the inner shaft rearward with respect to the fixed position where the valve is closed when the inner shaft is rotated preventing the neck member from passing through the passage hole.
