  • Publication number: 20210259771
    Abstract: A light radiating device (1A) performs solidification or cauterization of a biological tissue (PL) by radiating a light beam (BM). A light source (10A) emits the light beam (BM). An optical waveguide (20A) is a member being provided with a reflection surface (21A) totally reflecting the light beam (BM) on an inner circumferential side wall, causing the light beam (BM) emitted from the light source (10A) to enter a part enclosed by the inner circumferential side wall from one end, and sending the light beam (BM) to the other end. A catoptric system (30A) reflects the light beam (BM) sent to the other end of the optical waveguide (20A) and condenses the light beam (BM) on the biological tissue (PL).

  • Patent number: 11058280
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is useful as a stored object detector and a method of detecting stored objects configured to capture an image a movable storage portion, and objects stored in the storage portion, and configured to acquire storage information including at least one of position, size and quantity of the stored object based on the captured image. In addition, disclosed herein is a dishwasher configured to identify at least storage area of dish stored in a dish storage basket. It is possible to estimate a position of a basket, although the number of feature points is small. Therefore, when installing a detection indicator corresponding to the feature point, which is separated from the general configuration, to the basket, it is not required to install a large number of detection indicator, and thus it is possible to improve the appearance of the dishwasher.

  • Patent number: 10770907
    Abstract: A battery device includes battery module, each including an assembled battery and a battery monitoring circuit. The assembled battery comprises battery cells. The battery monitoring circuit measures voltages of the battery cells, current and temperature levels of the assembled battery. A control circuit is connected to the battery monitoring circuits through a communication line and supplies power to the battery monitoring circuits. The control circuit communicates with the battery monitoring circuits through the communication line. Each battery monitoring circuit is configured to monitor signals transmitted on the communication line for a predetermined time period after its startup, and then to select a communication ID to one that does not conflict with any other ID used to communicate through the communication line during the predetermined time period. The selected ID is then transmitted on the communication line.

  • Publication number: 20200278116
    Abstract: A heating cooker to manage surface and inside temperatures of food. A heating portion heats inside of a heating space where the food material is placed. At least one processor controls the heating portion to perform driving for high-temperature heating after performing driving for low-temperature heating. During the driving for low-temperature heating, the heating portion may heat the inside of the heating space such that an average increase velocity of a reference temperature of the food material is lower than an average increase velocity of the reference temperature of the food material during the driving for high-temperature heating. During the driving for high-temperature heating, the heating portion may heat the inside of the heating space such that an average increase velocity of the reference temperature of the food material is higher than the average increase velocity of the reference temperature of the food material during the driving for low-temperature heating.

  • Patent number: 10612832
    Abstract: A refrigerator includes a storage chamber, an evaporator configured to cool the storage chamber, and an air passage through which cold air generated by the evaporator flows. The air passage includes a blower fan configured to blow the cold air to the storage chamber, and a trap part in which warm air generated by a defrosting operation stays, such that warm air generated by the defrosting operation is prevented from being introduced into the inner space of the refrigerator through the air passage. The refrigerator reduces the defrosting operation time, efficiently prevents increase of the inner temperature of the refrigerator due to warm air during the defrosting operation, reduces a temperature difference in inner temperature of the refrigerator, and prevents food stored in the refrigerator from being rotten due to a temperature change.
