  • Patent number: 10562072
    Abstract: A grizzly apparatus includes a plurality of grizzly bars arranged at predetermined intervals in a second direction perpendicular to a first direction which is an extension direction of center axes of the grizzly bars. Each of the plurality of grizzly bars is rotatable in a direction opposite to a direction of rotation of its adjacent grizzly bar so that a slit through which a screening target object passes and a gap through which the screening target object does not pass alternately emerge, between adjacent grizzly bars. The guide includes an outer member forming its outer shape, and has at least one guide surface inclined with respect to the second direction in such a way that the guide surface descends as the guide surface advances in the second direction toward the slit to guide the screening target object having fallen onto the guide to the slit.

  • Publication number: 20130314013
    Abstract: In related art technique, an average neutral point voltage is detected via a low-pass filter. Time constant of the low-pass filter must be set to cover the entire output frequency band of an inverter and voltage fluctuation due to modulated signal must be separated from that due to a short circuit to ground. According to the present invention, whether abnormality such as a short circuit to ground or to supply occurs in output lines can be determined based on an actual neutral point voltage of a motor, which changes in a stepwise fashion in conformity to a PWM pulse pattern output by an inverter device, and a normal neutral point voltage which depends on a PWM pattern output by the inverter device. Highly reliable abnormality detection in accordance with the waveform of the neutral point voltage and stable abnormality detection not depending on the inverter output frequency are feasible.

  • Patent number: 6239603
    Abstract: Monitor TEGs (Test Element Groups) for extracting the effects of process variations within a semiconductor chip and a test circuit therefor are provided to allow the monitor TEGs to be tested after package sealing. A plurality of monitor TEGs and a control circuit for selectively enabling the monitor TEGs are formed on the same chip as a semiconductor device is formed. The monitor TEGs are placed in selected positions in the chip and selectively monitored via test signals, thereby implementing process parameter monitoring by means of the device parameter variations within the finished chip. The external terminals of the semiconductor device are configured such that they are programmed via enable signals to serve as input/output terminals of the test signals, keeping the number of the external terminals of the semiconductor device from increasing for the testing purpose.
