  • Patent number: 10894432
    Abstract: A printing apparatus comprises a conveyance control unit which controls conveyance of printing sheets so that a trailing edge of a preceding sheet as a printing sheet precedingly fed from the stacking unit and a leading edge of a succeeding sheet as a printing sheet succeedingly fed from the stacking unit overlap each other; and a skew correction unit which performs skew correction of the succeeding sheet while the succeeding sheet overlaps the preceding sheet by the conveyance control unit. The skew correction unit makes the leading edge of the succeeding sheet abut against the conveyance roller during a time from an end of a last line feed operation by the conveyance roller for printing on the preceding sheet by the printing unit to start of a next conveyance operation.

  • Patent number: 10876743
    Abstract: A settings data storage stores unique serial numbers and information regarding a plurality of patterns for alternately switching between normal operation for operating at high capacity and suppressed operation for operating at low capacity each unit time. A pattern specifier determines information for a pattern set in accordance with even and odd serial numbers. A water-heating heat amount determiner determines a heat amount necessary for water heating. A water heating scheduler establishes a water heating plan based on information regarding the pattern determined by the pattern determiner and the water-heating heat amount as determined by the water-heating heat amount determiner. A water heating controller alternately switches between normal operating and suppressed operation to heat water in accordance with the water heating plan established by the water heating scheduler.

  • Patent number: 10866875
    Abstract: A storage apparatus includes a controller unit and output unit. The controller receives cyclic information that is cycled within a specific group of storage apparatuses with properties close to a relevant storage apparatus. The cyclic information includes performance information of each storage apparatus in the specific group and evaluation information indicative of an evaluation result of the performance information of each storage apparatus. The controller acquires the performance information including the evaluation results, combines it with the cyclic information, and transmits the cyclic information to a storage apparatus which is a next cycling destination. A similarity level may be calculated based on configuration information and a predetermined weight. A specific group may be formed by checking whether storage apparatuses are capable of communicating with each other, so a cyclic path can be formed. The output unit may transmit performance information as information to be displayed on a user terminal.

  • Patent number: 10710379
    Abstract: A printer includes: a print head that performs printing on a print medium of a conveyance object having the print medium and a member other than a print medium having mutually different colors or color brightness levels on regions on one side; a detector to detect a color or color brightness of the conveyance object at a detection position; and a processor. When there is a change in the color or color brightness as a first detection result as compared with the color or color brightness as a second detection, the processor updates a held value, and does not update the held value when there is no change. The processor determines whether there is a change in a detection value as compared with the updated held value or a previous held value not updated. When determining that there is no change, the processor stops printing.
