  • Patent number: 9929491
    Abstract: A live portion protection structure includes a high-voltage electric wire that has a conductor and an insulating cover covering the conductor, a conductive terminal fitting that is connected to the conductor exposed from the high-voltage electric wire, an insulating housing that receives a connection part between the terminal fitting and the conductor, a regulation member that is disposed in a reception path for receiving the connection part into the housing, and an insulating extra-length portion that is provided in the cover. When a part or all of the connection part on a side of the conductor drops out from the housing, the extra-length portion abuts against the regulation member so as to be moved to an outside of the part or all of the connection part to thereby cover the part or all of the connection part.

  • Patent number: 9442057
    Abstract: In a method of measuring a viscosity of a sample based on a rotation frequency ?S of a conductive rotator rotating by applying a rotating magnetic field from outside to the rotator set in a container containing the sample and a rotation frequency ?B of the magnetic field, a constant k1 having temperature dependency of an apparatus and a constant k2 not having the temperature dependency at each temperature are found by using a equation, ?0?s=k1(?B??S)?k2, where a viscosity ?0 at specific temperature is known, and then a value of viscosity measured at the specific temperature is corrected by means of the constants k1 and k2, the rotation frequency ?S of the rotator, and the rotation frequency ?B of the magnetic field. The constant k1 may employ the temperature dependency of electric conductivity of metal used to the rotator.
