  • Publication number: 20200322692
    Abstract: It is possible to preferably transmit a command received from an external network to a corresponding device in an internal network. A command transmitted from a device on a first network is received. Transmitter information and receiver information are added to the received command, and the command is sent to a command transmission path of a second network. The transmitter information added to the command is rewritten from information regarding a proxy device to information regarding a device capable of transmitting the command when the proxy device is a device incapable of transmitting the received command.

  • Patent number: 10758123
    Abstract: An ophthalmological microscope system, having an illumination system that projects illumination light onto a subject's eye. A light receiving system guides returning light of the illumination light to an image sensor or an eyepiece system. An interference optical system splits light into measurement light and reference light and detects interference light generated from returning light of the measurement light and the reference light. A designation unit is used for designating an operation mode. When an observation priority mode (or an OCT priority mode) has been designated, a controller executes first light amount control that restricts light amount of the measurement light (or second light amount control that restricts light amount of the illumination light) to make total light amount of the illumination light and the measurement light equal to or less than a predetermined value.

  • Patent number: 10754596
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a communication device, a received data processing portion, a human detection sensor, a sensitivity setting portion, a rest control portion, and a return control portion. The sensitivity setting portion sets, based on content of the job data, the sensitivity of the human detection sensor for a time when specific devices including the received data processing portion are in a predetermined rest state. The rest control portion causes the specific devices to transit to the rest state when a predetermined rest condition is satisfied. The return control portion causes the specific devices to transit from the rest state to a return state when the human detection sensor detects a human body in the situation where the specific devices are in the rest state, wherein larger power is consumed in the return state than in the rest state.
