A cylindrical connector exterior, and a block that is incorporated in one end side of the connector exterior and in which a light emitting portion or a light incident portion is mounted toward another end side are included. The light emitting portion or the light incident portion is mounted on the block such that an optical axis direction of the light emitting portion or the light incident portion is inclined with respect to a longitudinal direction of the connector exterior. For example, the connector exterior has a length at which at least a part of light emitted from the light emitting portion can be emitted to an inner side (inner wall) of the connector exterior.

  • Patent number: 10458310
    Abstract: An object of this invention is to suppress the occurrence of pre-ignition by appropriately controlling a wall surface temperature of a combustion chamber based on a target temperature region in which the frequency with which pre-ignition occurs is reflected, without causing pre-ignition to actually occur. An ECU 50 acquires a wall surface temperature of a combustion chamber 14 or an engine water temperature or the like that correlates therewith as a wall temperature parameter. The ECU 50 is equipped with data for a pre-ignition suppression temperature region that is a region in which the pre-ignition occurrence frequency is smallest among temperature regions of the wall temperature parameter. In a pre-ignition susceptibility operating region A, the wall temperature parameter is controlled so as to fall within the pre-ignition suppression temperature region by operating a cooling water amount varying mechanism 38.
