  • Patent number: 10302668
    Abstract: In a case where a sample container 15 has a rubber-made lid 35, if a sample nozzle descends and comes into contact with the lid, the sample nozzle is relatively moved inside an arm as far as a lid detection distance, and a detector detects a detection plate. A fact that the sample nozzle comes into contact with the lid is stored together with position information of the sample nozzle, into an operation commanding unit. The sample nozzle further continues to descend, and a suction operation of a sample is performed at a predetermined position. In a case where the sample nozzle collides with a frame portion of the lid and external force is applied thereto, the detector detects that the detection plate is relatively moved as far as the detection distance.

  • Patent number: 10128614
    Abstract: A movable connector with which an insertion force of a connection object that places a load on a solder portion can be reduced, that has a floating function, and that can be reduced in size is provided. As a result of a pushing operation in which an operation housing is pushed into a fixed housing, a relay terminal is conductively connected to a substrate connection terminal, which is in conductive contact with a substrate, and a pin terminal, which is disposed in a movable housing and serves as the connection object, in the movable housing. Accordingly, the overall size of the movable connector can be reduced. In addition, the insertion force applied to the pin terminal is not applied to the solder portion by which the movable connector is fixed to the substrate, so that conduction failure does not occur.
