  • Patent number: 10442374
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a vehicle-use storage battery system includes a storage battery, a main circuit, a circuit breaker, a storage battery management unit, a first determiner, and a second determiner. The main circuit is electrically connected to the storage battery. The circuit breaker is disposed between the storage battery and the main circuit to make or break the electrical connection therebetween. The storage battery management unit manages an operating state of the storage battery. The first determiner determines whether to break the electrical connection between the storage battery and the main circuit by means of the circuit breaker. The second determiner determines, on the basis of at least one of operating states of the storage battery management unit, the first determiner, and the circuit breaker, whether to break the electrical connection between the storage battery and the main circuit by means of the circuit breaker.

  • Patent number: 10340564
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a vehicular storage battery device includes a housing, battery boxes, and a common cooling passage. The battery boxes are disposed in the housing. Each of the battery boxes houses an electric cell as a vehicle power source and includes a heat transporting part transporting heat generated in the battery box to outside of the battery box. The common cooling passage is disposed in the housing. The common cooling passage is provided with an inlet for taking in a fluid and an outlet for discharging the fluid having passed through the passage. The inlet and the outlet are open in a direction different from a traveling direction of the vehicle. The heat transporting part of each of the battery boxes is exposed to inside of the passage.

  • Patent number: 4730923
    Abstract: An inventive headlight optical axis aiming measuring apparatus and method is disclosed. The apparatus includes a head measuring horizontal and vertical inclinations of a front lens surface (34) of a headlight (12) installed in a vehicle (2) and including a plurality of contact-type displacement sensors (48, 49, 50, 51), each of which is associated with a device (28, 29, 30) in contact with the front lens surface (34) and moving in accordance with the inclinations of the front lens surface (34), a support (15) for the displacement sensors (48, 49, 50, 51), and device for checking the headlight optical axis aiming in accordance with a fixed relationship between inclinations of a headlight optical axis and the front lens surface (34) by means of outputs of the measuring head (9). In accordance with this invention, the headlight need ot come on and a large space is not required for projecting the headlight beam onto a screen.

  • Patent number: 3940567
    Abstract: Control pulses of highest positive level, clock pulses of negative middle level and reset pulses of lowest negative level are transmitted through one or more transmission lines. Separation of those pulses in the receiver is performed by means of simple rectifiers connected to the transmission lines. In both transmitter and receiver, binary counters and decimal decoders are utilized for repeatedly producing channel pulse sequences.
