  • Patent number: 9115612
    Abstract: A sealing member is supported by a holding surface of a vane rotor and slides on a sealing surface formed by an inner surface of a housing rotor, so as to seal an advancing chamber and a retarding chamber from each other. The sealing member has a pressure-receiving surface and a diffuser surface. The pressure-receiving surface receives pressure of working fluid from a working chamber in a direction to the sealing surface. The diffuser surface forms a sealing gap between the diffuser surface and the sealing surface, so that the sealing surface becomes larger as the sealing surface is more separated from the working chamber in a circumferential direction. The sealing member has a deformable portion forming the pressure-receiving surface and the diffuser surface. The deformable portion is elastically deformed, so that the diffuser surface is more strongly pushed to the sealing surface, when the pressure of the working fluid is increased.

  • Patent number: 8939007
    Abstract: A detecting unit outputs an object signal corresponding to an inertial force. A corrected signal is generated by correcting the object signal. A first environment value is obtained at a first time point. A second environment value is obtained at a second time point after the first time point. An environment difference value which is a difference between the first and second environment values is calculated. An environment change detection signal is output when an absolute value of the environment difference value is larger than a predetermined determination threshold. A first averaged signal is output by averaging a corrected signal in a predetermined period continuing to the first time point. A second averaging signal is output by averaging the corrected signal in a predetermined period continuing to the second time point. An offset difference value which is a difference between the first and second averaged signals is calculated.
