  • Patent number: 10789187
    Abstract: Problems such as an operation stop of a controller caused by leaving out a mismatch requiring a change can be prevented. When a setting value is changed in a unit operation setting, an allocation management part specifies a storage capacity required for a storage of input data based on the changed setting value, and judges whether a mismatch occurs in an allocation state between the input data and a storage area specified in an I/O allocation setting.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10461997
    Abstract: The convenience of a design of a system is improved by making it easier to verify consumed electric power when designing and constructing the system. An operation screen is displayed upon execution of on a PC for supporting the design of a control system. The configuration of a control system can be controlled in an editing region, and unit images representing an I/O unit are connected in order to a unit image representing a communication coupler. A power supply unit can be inserted into this configuration. An icon indicates a shortage of electric power to the units downstream of the unit indicated by a selected image. When a user mouses the pointer over the icon, the detailed meaning of the icon is displayed in a message. The designer is thus capable of easily verifying the position at which a power source supply unit should be added.

  • Patent number: 6837109
    Abstract: Longitudinal and shear ultrasonic waves are generated inside a material by irradiating a laser beam onto a first surface, e.g., incident surface, of the material. An ultrasonic longitudinal wave and a mode converted wave reflected by a second surface, e.g., a bottom surface, of the material are detected, and times of flight of the ultrasonic longitudinal wave and the mode converted wave are measured. A thickness of the material is measured based on the times of flight and a correlation, obtained in advance, between longitudinal and shear wave velocities of the material and temperature of the material.
