  • Publication number: 20200298074
    Abstract: Golf clubs and golf club heads having a weight member that is configurable in multiple positions to alter the performance characteristics of the golf club head are presented. In some examples, the weight member may be arranged in a sole of the golf club head and may include ends having different weighting characteristics. For instance, one end may be heavier or denser than another end of the weight member. The difference in weight characteristics may be due to different materials used to form the different ends, different construction of the ends, and the like. The position of the weight member may be adjusted to alter the performance characteristics of the golf club head. For instance, the weight member may be removed and rotated to position a heavier end where a lighter end was previously positioned.

  • Patent number: 10761767
    Abstract: A computer system includes a management computer, a first storage apparatus, and a second storage apparatus. A first logical device of the first storage apparatus and a second logical device of the second storage apparatus constitute a remote copy pair. The second logical device and a third logical device of the second storage apparatus constitute a copy pair. The second logical device and the third logical device have virtual IDs to be recognized by an issuer of an I/O request. The second storage apparatus interchanges the virtual IDs of the third logical device and the second logical device with reception of a command from the management computer as a trigger during processing of the I/O request from the issuer of the I/O request to the third logical device, thereby switching an access destination of the issuer of the I/O request from the third logical device to the second logical device.

  • Patent number: 10762021
    Abstract: An information system connected to hosts and an information processing system manages a second ALU connected to the hosts via a second logical path, and second SLUs for receiving I/O requests from the hosts via the second logical path. A processor manages a first ALU connected to the hosts via a first logical path and first SLUs that receive I/O requests from the hosts via the first logical path, and builds up a first group including the first SLUs. A first SLU and a second SLU compose an HA pair, and the HA pair is provided to the hosts as one volume. The processor evaluates the state of the first logical path based on the pair state of the first SLU that composes the HA pair included in the first group so priorities with which the hosts issue I/Os to the first logical path can be determined.

  • Publication number: 20200177111
    Abstract: A thyristor starter accelerates a synchronous machine from a stop state to a predetermined rotation speed by sequentially performing a first mode of performing commutation of an inverter by intermittently setting DC output current to zero and a second mode of performing commutation of the inverter by induced voltage of the synchronous machine. A second controller controls the firing phase of a thyristor in a converter such that DC output current of the converter matches a current command value, based on a detection signal of a position detector. In the first mode, the current command value is set such that the current value is higher as the rotation speed of the synchronous machine is higher.
