  • Publication number: 20210072682
    Abstract: A heater includes: a substrate; a first heating element being provided on one surface of the substrate and extending in a longitudinal direction of the substrate; a second heating element being provided on one surface of the substrate, extending in the longitudinal direction of the substrate, and being provided side by side with the first heating element in a direction orthogonal to the longitudinal direction; a first detecting section being provided on one surface of the substrate and detecting a temperature; a wiring being electrically connected to one ends of the first heating element, the second heating element, and the first detecting section; a first terminal being electrically connected to the other end of the first heating element; a second terminal being electrically connected to the other end of the second heating element; and a third terminal being electrically connected to the other end of the first detecting section.

  • Patent number: 10754280
    Abstract: A heater including a rectangular substrate; a resistance heat-generating element that is provided on one surface of the substrate along a longitudinal direction of the substrate; a thermistor that is provided on the other surface, which is a rear side of the one surface of the substrate, and measures temperature of the substrate; and a conductor that is provided on the other surface of the substrate, is extended up to an end portion of the substrate from the thermistor along the longitudinal direction of the substrate, and supplies power to the thermistor. A first connecting portion and a second connecting portion, which are connected to the conductor, are provided at both ends of the thermistor. A connection direction, in which the first connecting portion and the second connecting portion are arranged on the other surface of the substrate, is different from a lateral direction of the substrate.
