  • Patent number: 7243261
    Abstract: In a power supply control apparatus for controlling turn-on/turn-off of power of a main power supply to a load via a switch section, a drive signal producing section produces a drive signal for controlling ON/OFF operations of the switch section, based on an activation signal output from an activating section. A standby power supply supplies operation power to the activating section 11 and the drive signal producing section. A power failure monitoring section produces an energization signal indicative of a result of monitoring of an output of the main power supply, and outputs the signal to the activating section. The activating section outputs the activation signal based on the energization signal.

  • Patent number: 6252885
    Abstract: The CATV system includes a center device and a plurality of terminal devices. The center device sends downstream timeslots, to the terminal devices, including upstream timeslots occupancy information and collision information. Upstream timeslot occupancy information indicates whether or not an upstream timeslot corresponding to the downstream timeslot is vacant, and collision information indicates whether or not a collision has occurred. The terminal device receives the downstream timeslot, checks upstream timeslot occupancy information to detect upstream timeslot in the vacant state, and sends upstream data to the center device via the vacant upstream timeslot. If the upstream timeslot makes a collision, the center device detects it and sends a downstream timeslot which includes collision information indicative of the occurrence of the collision. The user of the terminal device recognizes the collision having occurred or not by referring to the collision information.

  • Patent number: 5233342
    Abstract: A remote control system is employed with a view to realization of automated/unattended control in supervisory control of power equipment, transportion/traffic equipment, building equipment, home equipment, and the like. This remote control system includes a priority rank determination unit and a control unit on the controlled side where a control signal for controlling the operation of a plurality of electric equipment is inputted through a communication system from the control side. The priority rank determination unit determines an operating priority rank of respective electric equipments on the basis of respective power dissipations of the plurality of electric equipments. The control unit operates respective electric equipments on the basis of the operating priority rank thus determined. By controlling the operation of the electric equipment in this way, an accident of interruption of the operation of the entire system resulting from the operation of a specific electric equipment is prevented.

  • Patent number: 4475121
    Abstract: A polling pattern generator system for use in a CATV system including a polling pattern generator and a passive data monitor. The polling pattern generator periodically generates polling pattern signals each of which has a specific address code for calling a corresponding terminal unit and a command code for requesting a designated answer from the called terminal unit. The passive data monitor compares an up data signal outputted from the terminal unit in response to the command code with the designated answer requested by the command code and judges whether or not an operational state of the terminal unit is acceptable from the resultant comparison output. The passive data monitor sets the address code in the designated terminal unit.

  • Patent number: 4408345
    Abstract: A remote line monitoring device and method for a CATV system in which a center facility is connected to plural terminal units through cables of the system to transmit television signals to subscribers' homes. A plurality of monitoring terminal units are provided along various points of the interconnecting cables. Each of the monitoring terminal units is identified by an unique address. To determine conditions throughout the system, a central monitoring system transmits polling signals on the cables. If an address contained within the polling signals matches with a prestored identifying address, a monitoring terminal unit responds by transmitting data produced by monitoring converter units back to the center facility. The center facility can then display the data or produce indications identifying problems along the cables.
