Abstract: In order to dynamically vary a pacing threshold and perform pacing control such that there is no bias in the stress applied to a user, a statistical information processing means: acquires statistical information of a mid-communication disconnect in which a user terminal disconnects in the midst of communications, in respect to communications according to an application protocol; calculates a degree of user dissatisfaction for each application protocol on the basis of the statistical information; and manages, for each application protocol, a pacing threshold corresponding to the degree of user dissatisfaction. A call processing means determines a pacing threshold for each application protocol such that communication traffic to a user terminal does not exceed a prescribed band upper limit and the degree of user dissatisfaction of each application protocol is the same, and executes pacing processing such that the communication traffic of each application protocol is below the determined pacing threshold.

Abstract: Even when a connection board has a large thickness tolerance, a stable connection is achieved by absorbing the tolerance so as to stabilize a contact pressure between the connection board and contacts. In a unit in which electrode groups of a connection board are in pressure contact with elastic contacts formed integrally with an inner housing to connect thereto, the inner housing is provided inside an outer case of a card edge connector through an elastic member to be freely movable forward and backward in a thickness direction of the connection board. The positions of the elastic contacts are adjusted by forward or backward moving the inner housing in accordance with the thickness of the connection board inserted into board insertion slots, so a pressure contact force with the elastic contacts is substantially equalized, irrespective of the size of the thickness of the connection board.

Abstract: In a molding die, movable die elements are respectively received in die element receiving holes formed in a frame plate. An end surface of the frame plate, which faces a cavity at a location that is other than locations of the die element receiving holes, forms a frame portion compression surface. An end surface of each movable die element, which faces the cavity, forms a split compression surface. Die element drive devices respectively drive the split compression surfaces of the movable die elements. A whole compression plate commonly supports an opposite end part of the frame plate and opposite end parts of the movable die elements, which are opposite from the cavity. When the whole compression plate is moved forward, the whole compression plate integrally drives the frame plate and the movable die elements forward. A whole drive device drives the whole compression plate.

Abstract: An object is to maintain the voltage of a fuel cell at a desired voltage level and suppress a voltage variation, even in the case of a low load request. A power supply system including a fuel cell causes at least part of a required electric power to be supplied from the fuel cell in an ordinary load state. In a low load state, the power supply system supplies an amount of oxygen that is required to make the voltage of the fuel cell equal to a predetermined target voltage and that is less than an amount of oxygen supplied to the fuel cell in the ordinary load state, to the fuel cell. In a first low load state, the power supply system sets the target voltage to a first target voltage and supplies oxygen to the fuel cell.
