  • Patent number: 11217943
    Abstract: A shield terminal is provided with a pair of female inner conductors including box-shaped connecting portions into which tabs of male inner conductors are inserted, a female dielectric configured by uniting a first member and a second member made of a material having a lower dielectric constant than the first member, the pair of female inner conductors being accommodated in the female dielectric while being arranged in parallel, and a front separation wall portion formed in the second member and disposed to partition between a pair of the box-shaped connecting portions. Since the female dielectric is divided into the first member and the second member and the front separation wall portion is formed in the second member having a lower dielectric constant, a material cost can be reduced as compared to the case where the both members are made of a material having a low dielectric constant.

    Abstract: A vehicle includes an engine; a continuously variable transmission; an output clutch disposed between the continuously variable transmission and the drive wheel; a drive motor coupled between the output clutch and the drive wheel; a traveling mode controller; and a speed ratio controller. In a case where required driving power based on an accelerator position is less than a first threshold, the traveling mode controller switches a traveling mode to a first traveling mode. In a case where the required driving power is equal to or greater than the first threshold, the traveling mode controller switches the traveling mode to a second traveling mode. In a case where the required driving power is less than the first threshold and equal to or greater than a second threshold, the speed ratio controller causes a speed ratio of the continuously variable transmission to change depending on a vehicle speed.

  • Publication number: 20210276132
    Abstract: A laser processing device includes a laser irradiation unit that performs processing on a workpiece by using a laser while scanning a workpiece surface to form a kerf, jet nozzles that respectively form jet flows flowing toward a bottom surface of the kerf on front and rear sides in a scanning direction of the laser, and an intake part that sucks, above injection ports of the jet nozzles, a gas in a region surrounded by the jet flows from the front and rear sides. In a state in which a certain region of the kerf is isolated by the jet flows, the gas is sucked from this region by the intake part. As a result, a suction force by the intake part can reach the bottom surface of the kerf.
