  • Publication number: 20210151983
    Abstract: Disclosed is a connection apparatus capable of supplying power supplied from a power supply module to a load. The connection apparatus includes: a connection unit connectable with the power supply module; a light emission element; and a light emission controller for controlling the light emission element, wherein the light emission controller causes, upon detection of a connection of the power supply module to the connection unit, the light emission element to emit light for a first predetermined time.

  • Publication number: 20210099107
    Abstract: The present disclosure aims to provide a power wiring network apparatus capable of constructing a highly portable power wiring network, without the need to maintain infrastructure. A power wiring network apparatus includes a wiring member, including first connectors and a conductive portion electrically connecting the first connectors to enable power supply, and circuit elements each including a second connector mechanically and electrically attachable to any first connector. The circuit elements include energy harvesting elements capable of outputting, from the second connector, power generated by energy harvesting and load elements capable of consuming power inputted from the second connector. At least some energy harvesting elements and load elements are capable of power line data communication via a power line including the first connectors and conductive portion.

  • Publication number: 20200373686
    Abstract: A connection instrument includes: a cable including an electrical wire and two separated covering parts covering the electrical wire; a connection terminal connectable to a terminal of an external connector; a connection part; a flat plate-shaped wiring board; and a housing. The connection part electrically connects the connection terminal and the electrical wire exposed between the two separated covering parts. The connection terminal and connection part are arranged on the wiring board. The wiring board is located between the two covering parts. The housing allows insertion/extraction of the external connector and houses the wiring board. At least part of the wiring board is roughly in contact with or included in a space linking adjacent ends of the two covering parts.
