  • Patent number: 10652160
    Abstract: In an on-vehicle system, on-vehicle device and gateway are connected via a first network, and the gateway and relay are connected via a second network. The relay performs open-close control of a gate, using a TAS standard of Ethernet TSN. The gateway receives first and second packets including given data, generates a third packet including the first and second packets, and sends the third packets at the transmission timing that is a timing the gate is placed in from closed state to open state to the relay. The relay receives the third packet from the gateway. The relay switches timing to transfer data, for each type of data, and transfer the third packet to the other relay, during a period in which the gate for the type of data is in an open state.

    Abstract: A membrane structure includes an airtight pressure-resistant gasbag and a shape maintaining mechanism which maintains the gasbag in a predetermined shape when the gasbag is in a fully inflated state. The gasbag includes a plurality of spindle-shaped gores of an airtight membrane material, adjacent gores joined together at edges, and a plurality of reinforcing ropes attached to joined sections of the edges, the reinforcing ropes extending along the edges, respectively. Each of the gores outwardly protrudes between two adjacent reinforcing ropes extending along the edges of the gore, respectively, without elongation of the airtight membrane material, when the gasbag is in the fully inflated state. Each protruding gore has a radius of curvature in a direction intersecting the two adjacent reinforcing ropes. The radius of curvature is smaller than a radius of the gasbag.

  • Patent number: 5852236
    Abstract: In a traverse device mounting type or handy type fluid measuring probe in which a plurality of conductive lines are connected to a contact type sensor element and the conductive lines are covered by a support member, or a test member attachment type fluid measuring probe, a fluid measuring probe is provided in which when the probe head or the support member is brought into contact with other things, an impact force is moderated and a damage of the probe head and the support member is suppressed. When a pressure that is not less than a predetermined pressure is applied to the support member in a direction perpendicular to a longitudinal direction of the support member, the support member may be bent; when the pressure is released, the support member may be restored; and when the pressure that is not less than the predetermined pressure is not applied, the support member may maintain a predetermined posture.

  • Patent number: 5784899
    Abstract: The present invention employs a dry-type condenser capable of heat exchange even at small temperature difference for the condensers for the crude argon column, deoxidation column, and pure argon column in an argon separation apparatus using air liquefication and distillation. Additionally, oxygen-enriched liquefied air withdrawn from a plate which is higher than the bottom of the higher pressure column of a double distillation column is employed as the cold source for the condensers. As a result, a large temperature difference between the condensive and vaporative sides of each column's condensers can be obtained. Moreover, even when the total number of theoretical steps of the crude argon column and the deoxidation column exceeds 100, it is not necessary to provide a blower to increase pressure of the crude argon. Thus, the cost of the apparatus and its operation can be reduced.

  • Patent number: 5765397
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an air liquefaction separation apparatus whose power cost is reduced. A low-pressure column of a double rectification column has a cleaning section at a lower position, and a liquid oxygen is partly withdrawn from the space above the cleaning section so as to supply it to a main condenser-evaporator. The liquid oxygen supplied to the main condenser-evaporator is subjected to heat exchange with a nitrogen gas separated at the head of a high-pressure column to be gasified into an oxygen gas. This oxygen gas is introduced to the space under the cleaning section. Hydrocarbons contained in the oxygen gas ascending through the cleaning section are removed by the rest of the liquid oxygen descending through the cleaning section to provide a clean oxygen gas. The liquid oxygen passed through the cleaning section is withdrawn from the low-pressure column.

  • Patent number: 4856330
    Abstract: A fluid speed or direction measuring apparatus utilizes a sensor where an output changes regularly with respect to a temperature change at the resistance-temperature characteristic of a piece of single crystal germanium, thereby converting the temperature change in the single crystal germanium in contact with the fluid into a resistance change, so that the resistance change is converted into voltage, a current or electric power.

  • Patent number: 4447805
    Abstract: In an array of coke ovens each including a plurality of combustion chambers having a plurality of flue nozzles, a measuring car equipped with a temperature measuring member runs above the array in a direction of the array or in a longitudinal direction of the combustion chambers so as to detect thermal radiations passing through the flue nozzles to measure combustion chamber temperature. The measured temperature is sent to a remote control room through antennae. Where a coal charging car of a Rahmen construction is used an antenna is also provided for the coal charging car so that even when the measuring car runs beneath the coal charging car, radio communication can be assured. The temperature of the combustion chambers can be readily and accurately measured by linearly running the measuring car whether combustion is effected in one or the other side of the combustion chambers.
