Abstract: An analog-digital conversion circuit is disclosed for comparing a comparison potential with a reference potential generated based on a reference power supply to convert a comparison potential to a digital value. An analog-to-digital converter generates the comparison potential based on a sampled and held input potential, the digital value, and the reference power supply. A current amount control unit controls current amount flowing to the current amount control element in each bit circuit. In response to second switches of the bit circuits being turned on in order from the upper bit in each bit circuit by the digital value, the current amount control unit applies a current control potential to the current amount control element in any of the bit circuits that the noise current is more than allowable value while the noise current proportional to the charge flowing from the capacitor is more than the allowable value.
Abstract: A construction machine is capable of reducing a decrease in work efficiency due to maintenance for capturing dust. The construction machine includes: an engine; a heat exchanger; a cooling fan that sucks air into an engine chamber to pass the air through the heat exchanger; an intake chamber independent of the engine chamber; an intake tube connected to the intake chamber; and a dust receiving part. The intake tube has a curved part, which has an outside inner wall surface allowing dust in the air to contact it. The dust receiving part is located downstream of the outside inner wall surface to be capable of receiving dust.
