  • Publication number: 20210283905
    Abstract: There is provided an ink jet recording apparatus including an ink jet head and a drive circuit. The ink jet head forms an image on a recording medium in response to a drive signal applied to multiple piezoelectric elements. The drive signal causes multiple pressure chambers corresponding to the multiple piezoelectric elements to expand or to contract in volume and causes ink in the multiple pressure chambers to be discharged from multiple nozzles. The drive circuit generates a drive signal for discharging multiple liquid droplets to one pixel for combining the multiple liquid droplets together and applies the drive signal to each of the multiple piezoelectric elements of the ink jet head. The drive signal includes multiple discharge pulses which make velocities of tips of respective liquid columns substantially same after a predetermined time from starting of ink discharge from the nozzles.

  • Publication number: 20210150004
    Abstract: A control device includes a storage unit that stores an authentication ledger, an authorization ledger, operation information, and operation recording target information. An authentication management unit, in a case of receiving authentication information from one information processing device, performs an authentication determination. An authorization unit determines whether to authorize the processing request of the one information processing device with the authorization ledger. An execution authorization unit, in a case in which the processing request authorized is a request for changing an operation state of the device, determines whether to authorize an execution of the processing request from the operation information, and, in a case of authorizing, causes the control execution unit to execute the processing request, and, in a case of not authorizing, transmits an error response to the one information processing device.

  • Publication number: 20210140225
    Abstract: A first end portion of a connecting part of a connecting member reaches a locked member arranged such that the thickness direction of one of two construction materials is an axial direction N, and a second end portion of the connecting part reaches the other one of the two construction materials. The second end portion is formed to have a torsion angle ? as an inclination angle to the axial direction N. When the second end portion is coupled with the other construction material by a coupling fitting, the torsion angle ? reduces or disappears, a torsion angle to the axial direction N is generated in the first end portion, the first end portion locks on the locked member, and the connecting member connects the two construction materials.
