  • Patent number: 8332670
    Abstract: For the discovery and detection of the relationships between power consuming devices and power distribution outlets, an aspect of the invention is directed to a system including at least one power consuming device and a plurality of outlets for supplying power, and a method for discovering a relationship between a target device of the at least one power consuming device and at least one outlet of the plurality of outlets which supplies power to the target device. The method comprises applying an external action to the target device to change power consumption of the target device; monitoring power consumption at each of the plurality of outlets; and correlating the applied external action and the monitored power consumption to obtain the relationship between the target device and the at least one outlet which supplies power to the target device.

  • Patent number: 7637057
    Abstract: An operating mechanism for an open/close object comprising a driving device for driving and opening the open/close object, a position detecting device for detecting an open position of the open/close object (1), and a fully open position storage device for storing a fully open position of the open/close object, wherein, when the driving device drives and opens the open/close object, the driving device is stopped in a fully open recognition position stored in the fully open position storage device or a position a fixed amount short of the fully open recognition position. When a current position of the open/close object after completion of the opening drive by the driving device is different from the fully open recognition position (#1), the fully open position storage device sets a new fully open recognition position (#2).

  • Patent number: 6814394
    Abstract: A door is moved in an opening direction at a first speed until the door reaches a decelerating area. A moving speed of the door in the opening direction is decelerated from the first speed to a second speed being lower than the first speed while the door has been moved in the decelerating area. The movement of the door is stopped when the door is moved beyond the decelerating area, the door comes in contact with an obstacle, and the moving speed of the door becomes lower than a predetermined speed corresponding to an open position of the door by a predetermined threshold value.
