  • Patent number: 11422657
    Abstract: A control surface has a first area configured to accept a first operation performed with an object for enabling a first function of the controlled device, a second area configured to accept a second operation performed with the object for enabling a second function of the controlled device, and a third area located between the first and second areas. A processing device is configured to: enable the third area to accept the first operation in a case where it is determined that an object contacts or approaches the first area; enable the third area to accept the second operation in a case where it is determined that the object contacts or approaches the second area; and disable acceptance of the first operation and the second operation in a case where it is determined that the objects contacts or approaches the third area prior to the first and second areas.

  • Patent number: 6851795
    Abstract: A cartridge is detachably mountable to a holder of an ink jet recording apparatus, so as to be freely reciprocatable to scan across a recording medium and record thereon by discharging ink. The cartridge is defined by a cartridge main body, and is provided with a recording head for discharging ink from plural nozzles formed in parallel on a lower face of the cartridge main body facing the recording medium. A front face of the cartridge main body is provided with an electrical connection portion having cartridge electrodes, which are electrically connectable with corresponding electrodes of the holder. A rear face opposite to the front face is provided with an ink connection portion connectable to corresponding supply ports which supply ink to the recording head from a main tank installed elsewhere on the ink jet recording apparatus. With the cartridge thus structured, the force exerted for connection to the supply port does not affect the precision with which the cartridge is mounted on the holder.

  • Patent number: 6805437
    Abstract: The invention prevents drawbacks resulting from the bubble generated at the downstream side of the filter, while minimizing the waste in the ink. The recording head has a sub tank for storing ink supplied from the exterior, and a liquid chamber storing the ink supplied from the sub tank and supplying ink directly to a nozzle for ink discharge. A filter is provided between the sub tank and the liquid chamber. The liquid chamber holds ink of a predetermined amount in such a manner that the ink therein is separated by gas between the filter and the liquid chamber.
