    Abstract: An imaging optical mechanism includes a first concave mirror and a second concave mirror at a position shifted from the first concave mirror in a sub-scanning direction. A plurality of aperture members in which slits are formed is disposed between the first concave mirror and the second concave mirror. The first concave mirror reflects light incident from an original document so as not to be imaged at a position between the first concave mirror and the second concave mirror in the sub-scanning direction, and reflects light incident from the original document so as to be imaged at the position between the first concave mirror and the second concave mirror in a main scanning direction. The second concave mirror reflects light which is reflected by the first concave mirror and incident thereto, so as to be imaged at a position of a sensor.

  • Patent number: 10305177
    Abstract: Provided is an on-board antenna waterproof structure that eliminates the need for assembling a waterproof structure by manual work, thus preventing an attachment error, and in which waterproof resin is strongly fused to a resin base.

  • Publication number: 20190025598
    Abstract: An image reading apparatus includes a reading module. The reading module includes a linear light source that extends in a direction intersecting a moving direction in which the transport unit relatively moves and irradiates a document with light via a transparent member, an image forming element that condenses the light reflected from the document, and a light receiving element that receives the light condensed by the image forming element. The linear light source is disposed such that a main optical axis of the linear light source is inclined at a first angle with respect to a normal direction of the transparent member in the moving direction, and the image forming element is inclined at a second angle in the same direction as the inclination of the main optical axis of the linear light source.
