  • Patent number: 10289272
    Abstract: A portable media player communicates with a host computer for enabling a user of the player to manage media distribution using the control software of the host computer. The host computer can send a GUI that is displayed on the otherwise “dumb” player, and the user can view the GUI and press a single button to command the control software to download a media title to the player. The host computer can periodically poll the player to determine its status.

  • Patent number: 8388328
    Abstract: In an inner wall surface of a casing, grooves are formed that correspond to end faces of an outer rotor and an inner rotor, and seal members are disposed within the grooves, the seal members presses against the end faces of the outer rotor and the inner rotor. Inclined portions are provided in sealing portions of resin members of seal members, the sealing portions covering a closed portion. With this configuration, an internal pressure in the closed portion causes the inclined portions to separate from an outer rotor and an inner rotor when a brake fluid pressure within the closed portion increases to the point that the brake fluid is excessively compressed, releasing the brake fluid that is inside the closed portion. It is therefore possible to prevent the brake fluid pressure from increasing excessively within the closed portion.

  • Patent number: 7931454
    Abstract: A bearing is located with movement of an outer race in the longitudinal direction of a drive shaft being restricted, and the drive shaft is fixed to an inner race with the press fit, so that, it is possible to prevent the drive shaft from escaping. In addition, the inner race is longer than the outer race. Therefore, it is possible to obtain sufficient strength of the press fit of the drive shaft in the inner race while suppressing the size of the outer race (in other words, suppressing the size of the pump device). As a consequence, the size of the pump device can be suppressed while increasing reliability of the function for preventing the drive shaft from escaping.

  • Patent number: 7441562
    Abstract: A stopper formed of a magnetic material and forming a portion of a magnetic circuit has a deformable portion that deforms in accordance with the pressure in a space within a sleeve. The deformable portion is provided with a pressure sensor that measures the amount of deformation of the deformable portion. The deformable portion, corresponding to a diaphragm, is formed in the stopper, which is a conventional electromagnetic valve component part. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to provide a diaphragm or a seal member.

  • Publication number: 20070231177
    Abstract: A bearing is located with movement of an outer race in the longitudinal direction of a drive shaft being restricted, and the drive shaft is fixed to an inner race 51c with the press fit, so that, it is possible to prevent the drive shaft from escaping. In addition, the inner race is longer than the outer race. Therefore, it is possible to obtain sufficient strength of the press fit of the drive shaft in the inner race 51c while suppressing the size of the outer race (in other words, suppressing the size of the pump device). As a consequence, the size of the pump device can be suppressed while increasing reliability of the function for preventing the drive shaft from escaping.

  • Patent number: 7150196
    Abstract: If a pressure sensor is increased in size and therefore the inside diameter of a yoke is increased, a stopper is provided with a large-diameter portion. The large-diameter portion makes it possible to reduce the air gap between the stopper and the yoke and therefore suppress an increase in magnetic resistance. Besides, a magnetic circuit member is provided at an outer peripheral side of a sleeve. The magnetic circuit member makes it possible to reduce the air gap between the yoke and an armature and therefore suppress an increase in magnetic resistance.
