  • Patent number: 11192382
    Abstract: A liquid cartridge includes: a housing; a liquid passage extending in a first lateral direction from the housing when the housing is in an operational posture; a sealing member provided in the liquid passage; a circuit board including an electrical contact; and a restricting surface positioned below the liquid passage. The restricting surface is capable of preventing the housing from moving in a second lateral direction opposite the first lateral direction.

  • Publication number: 20210331484
    Abstract: An image-recording apparatus includes: a first tank defining a first storage chamber; a second tank defining a second storage chamber; a conveying mechanism for conveying sheets along a conveying path extending in a depthwise direction and a widthwise direction perpendicular to a vertical direction and the depthwise direction; and a recording head including a nozzle. Liquid in the first storage chamber is supplied through a communication port to the second storage chamber and then to the recording head through a liquid outlet port. The second storage chamber is positioned further in a first depthwise direction relative to the nozzle and further in a first widthwise direction relative to the conveying path. A volume of a prescribed space above a liquid level equal to a height of the communication port in the second storage chamber is greater than that of a liquid channel between the liquid outlet port and the nozzle.

  • Patent number: 11139153
    Abstract: The MCP assembly of this embodiment is formed at least of a conductive upper support member, an MCP unit, an output electrode, a flexible sheet electrode, and a conductive lower support member as a structure for improving handleability of a flexible sheet electrode having a mesh area. The flexible sheet electrode includes the mesh area provided with plural openings. The flexible sheet electrode and the lower support member are physically and electrically connected to each other, and the flexible sheet electrode is sandwiched between the upper support member and the lower support member. As a result, even if the flexible sheet electrode becomes thin as an opening ratio of the mesh area increases, potential is set while the flexible sheet electrode is firmly held in the MCP assembly.

  • Publication number: 20210272786
    Abstract: An MCP assembly of this embodiment is provided with an MCP unit and a flexible sheet electrode having a structure for facilitating handling thereof as a single body. The flexible sheet electrode is constituted by a mesh area provided with plural openings and a deformation suppressing portion surrounding the mesh area. Both the mesh area and the deformation suppressing portion are comprised of the same conductive material, and physical strength of the deformation suppressing portion is higher than that of the mesh area. With this configuration, the physical strength of an entire flexible sheet electrode is secured even if an opening ratio of the mesh area is increased, so that the handling of the flexible sheet electrode as a single body is facilitated.
