  • Patent number: 10994968
    Abstract: An elevator rope elongation measuring device provided with: a camera for photographing one or a plurality of elevator ropes R; and an image processing unit for image processing a photographed image output from the camera, wherein: the image processing unit detects an external form portion of the elevator rope R as a regular hill and valley shape T, converts a cyclic length of the hill and valley shape into actual dimensions and makes this a measured value, and finds a ratio of the measured value with respect to a standard value prescribed for the elevator rope as an elongation, therefore attaining the effect of making it unnecessary to have a preliminary installation of a sensor or marker to the rope, or preliminary creation of a database.

  • Patent number: 7836233
    Abstract: A serial communication interface (SCI) cable 4 is provided between the slave processor 2 and the master processor 3. Both processors are connected with a communication interface for peripheral units (SPI: Serial Peripheral Interface) which enables fast transmission. The slave processor 2 transmits a transmission request command which requests at least one of data transmission and reception from the command communication section 220 to the master processor 3 through the SCI cable 4. The master processor 3 transfers data to and from the slave processor 2 in communication with the slave processor 2 by means of the data communication section 310 through the fast SPI cable 5 in response to a transmission request command sent from the slave processor 2 With this, the processing ability of a multi-processor system can be increased.

  • Publication number: 20100191934
    Abstract: Herein disclosed is a microcomputer MCU adopting the general purpose register method. The microcomputer is enabled to have a small program capacity or a high program memory using efficiency and a low system cost, while enjoying the advantage of simplification of the instruction decoding as in the RISC machine having a fixed length instruction format of the prior art, by adopting a fixed length instruction format having a power of 2 but a smaller bit number than that of the maximum data word length fed to instruction execution means. And, the control of the coded division is executed by noting the code bits.

  • Patent number: 7207314
    Abstract: An engine electronic control unit is inserted through a through hole provided in an intake pipe and mounted in an intake air passage in a direction substantially perpendicularly with respect to a plane of the intake pipe forming the intake air passage. This unit is then secured to the intake pipe using a fixing flange provided at a connector portion. A fixing rail is protruded inside the intake pipe and leading edges of a metal base and a metal cover of the unit are inserted into this rail, thereby securing in position an end opposite to a side of the connector portion of the unit. This realizes an engine electronic control unit offering an outstanding heat radiation performance and vibration resistance, without having to provide special heat radiating parts or without involving an increase in an intake air resistance within the intake air passage. By using such an engine electronic control unit, it is possible to provide a low-cost, compact engine air intake system.
