  • Patent number: 10661534
    Abstract: The multiple pane includes: a first glass panel; a second glass panel disposed facing the first glass panel with a predetermined interval in-between; and a hermetically-bonding member hermetically bonding peripheries of the first glass panel and the second glass panel to form a hermetically-enclosed space between the first glass panel and the second glass panel. The multiple pane further includes an adsorbing member which is fixed on a surface of the first glass panel so as to be inside the hermetically-enclosed space, has a height equal to or less than a length of the predetermined interval, and is for adsorbing a gas inside the hermetically-enclosed space. The hermetically-enclosed space is made to be in a reduced-pressure state.

  • Patent number: 10378272
    Abstract: The glass panel unit is a predetermined part separated from a completed assembly obtained by subjecting a temporary assembly to a predetermined process. In the temporary assembly, the inside space (500) enclosed by the first and second glass substrates and the frame is divided into the first space and the second space with the partition and the gas adsorbent is inside the first space. The predetermined process includes: converting the first space into the evacuated space by evacuating the first space through the gas passage, the second space, and the outlet; and changing a shape of the partition to close the gas passage to form the seal enclosing the evacuated space. The predetermined part includes: a first and second glass panels being parts of the first and second glass substrates; the seal; the evacuated space; and the gas adsorbent.

  • Publication number: 20180328873
    Abstract: The present invention provides a catalytic conversion-type sensor that detects a detection target gas by detecting a conversion gas produced through a reaction, the catalytic conversion-type sensor including: a gas flow path that allows the detection target gas to flow down; and a conversion portion that is connected to the gas flow path, the conversion portion including, on a side partitioned by a diffusion means that allows the detection target gas to naturally diffuse, a heated catalyst portion that produces a conversion gas by causing the detection target gas to come into contact with a heated catalyst and react with the heated catalyst, and a sensor element portion that is capable of detecting the conversion gas produced through the reaction.

  • Patent number: 10065211
    Abstract: The present invention provides a device with a piezoelectric element disposed at a location other than near an edge of a panel. A device includes a panel and a piezoelectric element disposed in a predetermined region on a planar surface of the panel. The panel vibrates in response to vibration of the piezoelectric element so as to transmit sound to a human body contacting the panel. By the piezoelectric element being disposed in the predetermined region of the panel, the center of the piezoelectric element is located within a range of 40% to 60% of the distance from one edge to the other edge of the panel in a first direction and within a range of 40% to 60% of the distance from one edge to the other edge of the panel in a second direction perpendicular to the first direction.

  • Patent number: 10033950
    Abstract: An image sensor control device includes an image sensor including focus detecting pixels; an object brightness detecting unit that detects brightness of an object; a mode determining unit that determines a first readout mode or a second readout mode based on the detected brightness of the object; a read-out unit that reads out the focus detecting pixels in the determined readout mode; and a focus detecting unit that performs focus detection by using focus detection data read out from the focus detecting pixels. In an implementation, in the first readout mode, the read-out unit reads out the focus detecting pixels in a first interval, and, in the second readout mode, the read-out unit reads out the focus detecting pixels in a second interval, which is longer than the first interval.

  • Publication number: 20170150532
    Abstract: A wireless communication system includes an information terminal and a communication device. Communication between the information terminal and the communication device is performed by a first wireless communication through an access point or by a second wireless communication directly between the information terminal and the communication device without passing through the access point. The wireless communication system determines whether the information terminal can be connected to the communication device through the first wireless communication with the information terminal set as the access point. The system transmits an instruction signal for changing the access point to the communication device through the second wireless communication when it is determined that the information terminal cannot be connected to the communication device.
