  • Publication number: 20210143620
    Abstract: An electric connection box includes a housing having an opening and side walls, a lock protruding plate, a lid having a hanging wall having a hanging wall lower end surface and a hook, lock portions, a rotation tip end portion of the lid being provided between the lock portions, an annular packing, a step portion and a cutout portion provided on the hanging wall on a first portion of the lid, the first portion comprising the rotation tip end portion. The cutout portion is formed by cutting a lower tip end of the hanging wall such that a first clearance between the hanging wall lower end surface and the step portion at the first portion is larger than a second clearance between the hanging wall lower end surface and the step portion at a second portion of the lid, the second portion being different from the first portion.

  • Publication number: 20210143622
    Abstract: An electric connection box includes a housing having an opening defined by an upper end of side walls, a lock protruding plate, a lid including a hanging wall and to be attached to the housing, a hook, an inner wall protruding from the lid and a notch being obtained by cutting a lower tip end of the inner wall. The hanging wall is, when the lid is attached to the housing, to cover an outer side of side walls. The hook is to rotate the lid such that the lid is attached to the housing. The inner wall is to, when the lid is attached to the housing, to sandwich the one of the plurality side walls between the hanging wall. The notch is formed on the inner wall in a second portion corresponding to a first portion of the hanging wall on which the hook is provided.

  • Patent number: 10663373
    Abstract: A misfire detecting device for an engine is provided, which includes a processor configured to execute a cylinder operation controlling module to switch an engine operation mode from an all-cylinder operation to a reduced-cylinder operation in which operation of one or some of cylinders are suspended, when an execution condition of the reduced-cylinder operation is satisfied, a misfire detecting module to detect a possibility of misfire occurrence based on an angular speed variation of the engine, and a centrifugal damping part configured to reduce vibration caused by the engine. When a possible misfire state is detected by the misfire detecting module during the reduced-cylinder operation, the cylinder operation controlling module executes an operating-cylinder increase control in which the number of operating cylinders is increased. When the possible misfire state is continuously detected after the operating-cylinder increase control, the misfire detecting module detects the engine misfire.

  • Patent number: 8093811
    Abstract: A technique for improving impact resistance performance of a panel is provided in a module or display apparatus with a flat display panel. In a PDP module, a filter is bonded onto a front surface side of a PDP, and a base chassis is bonded to a rear surface side with a two-sided tape. In an attaching portion for the base chassis and a casing, a spring structure portion having a sloped portion and a space is provided in an area of the base chassis so as to correspond to a connecting part of the casing. Impact to glass of the PDP is buffered to an impact force in a direction vertical to a surface of the PDP due to a spring property of the spring structure portion.

  • Patent number: 7872877
    Abstract: A PDP apparatus has a plurality of address driving modules (ADMs) connecting a PDP, a chassis, PDP address electrodes with an address driving circuit of the chassis side. The ADM has a flexible substrate on which wiring and a driver IC are mounted and an address substrate formed by a metal plate for holding/fixing the flexible substrate. With respect to a bracket of an attachment part of the chassis, the two adjacent ADMs are positioned by positioning pins and elongated holes at both ends of the address substrates, and attached and held/fixed by common fastening using a female screw portion, chipped portions, and a screw part. Reduction in the number of required parts and work man-hours, stable holding/fixing, etc. are realized in a driver module of a PDP apparatus.

  • Patent number: 7639489
    Abstract: A base chassis has projection parts. A surrounding part of an image display surface of a plasma display panel (PDP) is in contact with a contact part formed around an opening part of a front case. The projection parts are fixed to a chassis fixation part of the front case. The projection parts each have an elastic structure part which elastically deforms in response to a pushing force to the display surface of the PDP. An external force from a rear case side is transmitted to the chassis fixation part only, preventing impact to the PDP. When the PDP directly receives an external force from the front case side, the elastic structure part can elastically deform to alleviate the impact to the PDP. This can alleviate stress to the PDP when applied an external force from the front surface and the rear surface of the cases.
