    Abstract: A light source unit includes a laser diode and a collimator lens having an entrance portion and an exit portion, with light emitted from the laser diode being incident light which is caused to enter the collimator lens. The laser diode is disposed so that a direction of a major axis of an elliptic cross section which intersects an axis of the incident light at right angles is defined as a direction of a first axis, and the entrance portion includes an elongated recess portion which is formed into a recess shape which is curved inwards towards a direction in which the incident light exits. In addition, a recessed edge of the elongated recess portion in a cross section, which intersects the first axis at right angles, is formed into an arc shape, and the incident light which enters the entrance portion is caused to exit from the exit portion.

  • Patent number: 9785117
    Abstract: A motor drive device includes a driver unit configured to be connected to a stepping motor, and a controller connected to the driver unit. The controller causes the driver unit to output a drive pulse to the stepping motor for causing the stepping motor to rotate stepwise in a prescribed rotation direction. The controller detects, through the driver unit, a current induced by a counter-electromotive force generated in the stepping motor in response to the drive pulse. The controller causes the driver unit to apply a counter pulse having the same electrical polarity as the drive pulse to the stepping motor so as to suppress an amount of the current induced by the counter-electromotive force when the stepping motor is not rotating in response to the drive pulse so that the amount of the induced current detectably differs between when the stepping motor is rotating and not rotating.

    Abstract: A task management apparatus includes a display controller and a retriever. The display controller displays a check sheet for checking whether a task on a certain date and time has been completed with respect to each predetermined date and time. The check sheet is displayed individually with respect to each type of the task. The retriever retrieves a completion notification that indicates completion of the task. The completion notification includes date and time information on a date and a time of the completion of the task. The check sheet includes a mark pasting area for pasting a predetermined mark with respect to each predetermined date and time. When the retriever retrieves the completion notification, the display controller changes a display manner of the mark pasting area of a date and time corresponding to the completion notification.
