  • Patent number: 8610586
    Abstract: A sensor having a detecting part for detecting an environmental value representing change in physical amount of circumference environment by a fluid flowing into externally and a controlling part for discriminating abnormality in circumference environment based on the environmental value detected by the detecting part. A separating plate is provided inside a housing so as to separate two spaces in the height direction. A detection unit is provided in one space and a sounding body is provided in the other space. Apertures are provided in a side wall, thereby opening one space to the outside environment and letting the fluid to be measured flow into the space. Then, a flow path is formed inside the space in the housing, from the side wall forming the housing toward the detection unit, thereby proactively channeling the fluid to the detection unit.

  • Patent number: 5941734
    Abstract: A connector A includes a plurality of conductors. Each conductor consists of a contact 1, a terminal piece member 2, and a connecting conductor 3 connecting the contact 1 with the terminal piece member 2. The conductors are respectively held on a body 10 of the connector. The connecting conductors 3 are arranged in three layers in such a position relationship that can prevent them from short-circuiting each other and also can prevent a crosstalk from being produced between them. In this structure, the connecting conductors 3 are arranged in two or more levels, which makes it easier for the connector to be designed for prevention of the crosstalk when compared with a structure in which the connecting conductors 3 are arranged in one plane.

  • Patent number: 5762518
    Abstract: A modular jack telephone type connector has a housing which is associated with a carrier on which metal conductors are mounted on a top surface of the carrier, a wire positioning fixture which has wire openings for inserting electrical wires and a cavity for receiving terminals of the conductors and is supported in a hole on the top carrier surface allowing the fixture to move vertically in the hole with respect to the carrier, vertical fins which are mounted on the carrier mates vertical grooves which are provided on an opposite side of the wire openings of the fixture for additional secure positioning, a lever which is pivoted at the housing, rotating toward or away from the carrier, and coupled to the fixture via an interlock mechanism in order to transmit a rotational lever motion to the vertical fixture motion.
