  • Patent number: 10908356
    Abstract: An optical circuit board which is mounted with a loop-back circuit for returning aligning light to the fiber array in the vicinity of the fiber array connection end. Since an aligning loop-back circuit can be formed in an optical waveguide pattern, a production cost does not increase in comparison to an optical circuit board of the related art. The aligning light combined from the optical fiber to the aligning port of the optical circuit board is returned to the optical fiber around the loop-back circuit. Therefore, it is possible to perform alignment using the returned light. That is, alignment can be performed while being mounted on a package without installing a light-reflecting film or mirror.

  • Publication number: 20200339234
    Abstract: As a conventional antifouling measure to prevent adherence of aquatic organisms to a submersible sensor unit, a grease containing a stimulant, such as mustard, capable of repelling aquatic organisms is applied onto a sensing part thereof, thereby preventing adherence of the aquatic organisms. However, the irritant-containing grease applied onto the sensing part will come off within one to two months, resulting in disappearance of its effect. Thus, it is necessary to perform work of pulling up the submersible sensor unit and re-applying the grease, in each case. The present invention provides a water flow resistant submersible sensor unit which comprises an aquatic organism adherence preventive film capable of preventing adherence of aquatic organisms even when used in the submersible sensor unit for about half a year, almost without involving any underwater movement, and capable of, after use, being easily peeled off from the submersible sensor unit.

  • Patent number: 10749282
    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.
