Abstract: In a motor control device that drives a plurality of motors with one DC power supply, detection of a short circuit fault occurring in the motors is realized with an inexpensive configuration. In order to drive the plurality of motors (105, 106), a current detection resistor (404, 405) is arranged between a connection point on positive terminal sides of a plurality of electric power converters (401, 402) connected in parallel to a DC power supply (403) and a positive terminal of the DC power supply, or also between a connection point on negative terminal sides of the plurality of electric power converters and a negative terminal (ground) of the DC power supply, to thereby detect the short circuit fault based on a voltage of the current detection resistor.
Abstract: A belt member is seamed to form an endless belt which is stretched by a plurality of roller members and circulated in a first direction. The belt member is provided with an electrode portion at a first end portion thereof in a second direction perpendicular to the first direction. A cleaning member is abutted against the belt member. A seam of the belt member extends obliquely relative to the first direction such that an end of the seam confronting the electrode portion is situated in an upstream side of the first direction.
Abstract: Bright and dark field imaging operations in an optical inspection system occur along substantially the same optical path using the same light source by producing either a circular or an annular laser beam. Multiple beam splitting is achieved through the use of a diffractive optical element having uniform diffraction efficiency. A confocal arrangement for bright field and dark field imaging can be applied with multiple beam scanning for suppressing the signal from under-layers. A scan direction not perpendicular to the direction of movement of a target provides for improved die-to-die comparisons.
Abstract: A power supply system having a simple arrangement of connections between a load connected to a positive terminal of a high voltage battery via a pulse modulation control circuit and to and a positive terminal of a low voltage battery permits loading to be controlled throughout the system without damage or electromagnetic interference. The power supply system can accommodate low voltage loads on the high voltage subsystem to reduce conversion requirements for any DC/DC converter that is included in the power supply system. A charging controller regulates the amount of charge supplied to the high voltage and low voltage batteries.
Abstract: A frame for an electric motor is provided with a high heat discharge efficiency at low manufacturing cost wherein a plurality of cooling media paths, grooves, groove paths, media paths and communication paths are formed on the frame using a diecast process. A plurality of fins are formed in the grooves and a plurality of cooling media guide members are secured about the periphery of the frame to control the flow of the cooling media.
