  • Publication number: 20020056131
    Abstract: On a data terminal compatible only with a specific image data format, image data in an incompatible data format could not be viewed. In addition, on a small display screen, only small-size image data could be viewed. In response to an image data distribution request from a data terminal, a data distribution device converts the format of image data incompatible with the data terminal before transmission to the data terminal. In addition, the data distribution device adds image operation buttons in order to send enlarged image data corresponding to any of the buttons.

  • Patent number: 5594426
    Abstract: A network management system includes network stations each having a power source and a power switch to turn the power source on and off, a network management station to monitor the network stations, and a communication network enabling connections between the network stations and the network management station. When turned off by the power switch, the network station enables communication with the network management station and then sends an event to notify the power-off state thereto. This enables the network management system to display whether the communication failure is caused by a network failure or the power-off of the network station.

  • Patent number: 5351040
    Abstract: In a ring LAN system having a configuration control unit serially connected to a dual ring transmission line, the configuration control unit is provided with a transmission line reconfiguration control mechanism to disconnect a fault point upon detection of a transmission fault, such as a breaking of one of a twisted pair of cables, and after recovery of the fault, reconnect the disconnected point to restore the transmission line to its original state. The reconfiguration control mechanism suspends reconfiguration control if a reconfiguration operation counter counts more than a predetermined number of reconfiguration operations within a predetermined time period measured by a reconfiguration operation monitor timer, such as when a temporary fault occurs intermittently.

  • Patent number: 4984233
    Abstract: A method for performing a duplicated address test used for a network including a first ring transmission line, a second ring transmission line having a signal transmission direction opposite to that of the first ring transmission line, and a plurality of stations connected to at least one of these ring transmission lines. Each of these stations has a flag DAC representing whether or not the duplicated address test is performed, and some of the plural stations constitute a plurality of control nodes having a configuration function of the network. The flag DAC of each of the stations is reset at a time instant when a power source of this station is turned on, and also when any of the control nodes receives the sent out configuration control frame. Each of the stations having the reset flags DAC sents out the duplicated address test frame to either the first or second transmission line to which the station is connected when a token frame to control a transmission right is captured.

  • Patent number: 4769807
    Abstract: In a loop communication system in which a plurality of stations connected to a pair of loop transmission lines comprised of a main transmission line and a preparatory transmission line communicate with each other through the loop transmission lines, one of the transmission lines has to be looped back to the other when failures occur in both the transmission lines by escaping from a point at which the failures occur. When the master station sequentially transmits loop back command signals to slave stations connected to the loop transmission lines, it takes into consideration the number of slave stations present between the master station and an interrogated slave station inclusive thereof so as to vary the monitoring time in accordance with a turn around time required for the master station to receive a response signal sent from the interrogated slave station being in receipt of a loop back command signal, thereby reducing the time for loop back.

  • Patent number: 4558428
    Abstract: This invention relates to a loop transmission system which has a plurality of stations connected to a loop transmission path to transmit data among the stations. In the transmission frame to be sent out from the sending station, specific information is included for identifying each frame and this information is held in the sending station. When the transmission frame returns to the sending station after being transmitted through the loop transmission path, the specific information in the frame is received and compared with the information held in the station and, if they coincide, it is decided that the transmission frame has been correctly received by the intended receiving station.

  • Patent number: 3984898
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for producing multilayer fibrous mats is provided which can form alternate short and long fiber layers continuously on a single forming endless wire cloth. The layers are brought together under the influence of suction air and are held together by interfiber bonds at their interfaces. The apparatus is composed of long fiber defibrators and a short fiber disperser unit placed above the forming endless wire cloth. First, a thin web of long fibers is formed on the forming wire cloth and then a short fiber mat is formed on top of the said long fiber web. At this point, the short fibers to a certain extent are pulled into and among the long fibers of the thin long fiber web by the use of suction air thus forming a long fiber layer, long-short fiber interface layer and a short fiber layer mat construction.
