  • Publication number: 20210280046
    Abstract: A fire detector is connected to a loop transmission line connected to a receiver. When the loop transmission line is normal, a transmission unit is connected to the fire detector. When a disconnection failure occurs, a disconnection monitoring unit turns on switching circuits to connect the end of the loop transmission line to the transmission unit, and the receiver connects to the fire detector from both ends of the loop transmission line. An input/output switching booster is inserted and connected in the middle of the loop transmission line, and when the start side transmission line is disconnected and the switching circuits are turned on, the input/output is switched. Accordingly, the input/output switching booster amplifies the down signal input from the terminal side transmission line and outputs it to the start side transmission line and at the same time amplifies the up signal input from the start side transmission line.

  • Patent number: 11043109
    Abstract: A fire detector is connected to a loop transmission path connected to a receiver. When the loop transmission path is normal, a communication connection is made from a transmitting unit to the fire detector to monitor fire. When a break fault occurs in the loop transmission path, a break monitoring control unit turns switching circuit units ON to connect a termination of the loop transmission path to the transmitting unit. To the loop transmission path, a relay detects a current normal direction at normal and a current reverse direction at the time of occurrence of a break for transmission to the receiver. When a break occurs in the loop transmission path, a break section determining unit of the receiver determines, as a break section, a section in which the current normal direction detected by a plurality of the relays is changed to the current reverse direction.

  • Patent number: 7435068
    Abstract: A pneumatic tire production system comprises production lines each including a green tire building station for assembling unvulcanized members of pneumatic tires into green tires. The green tires are vulcanized at a vulcanizing station which includes at least one vulcanizing unit equipped with a plurality of vulcanizing molds. The number of the vulcanizing mold is determined so as to satisfy the vulcanizing capacity which is substantially equivalent to the number of green tires formed at the building station within a predetermined unit time. The system serves to minimize the intermediate stock amount of green tires due to minimized changeover between different types of tires to be alternately produced.

  • Patent number: 7190938
    Abstract: A receiver for receiving a digital radio broadcast in which additional information is multiplexed with audio information includes a memory for storing the additional information, a liquid crystal display (LCD), and a bookmark button. When the bookmark button is depressed during reception of a program, a control unit stores the additional information of the program in the memory as bookmark data. The bookmark data stored in the memory is displayed on the LCD. When data is specified as search data the control unit sequentially searches programs currently being broadcast or to be broadcast, and detects and tunes in to a program that includes the search data in the additional information of the program. Alternatively, the additional information of the detected program is displayed on the LCD and tuning in to the program is performed in accordance with an operation by a user.

  • Patent number: 6563896
    Abstract: A digital broadcast receiver for determining the actual transmission mode of a Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) signal with a delay circuit for delaying a received DAB signal is provided. With a correlation circuit for correlating a delay output of the delay circuit with the received DAB signal a moving average circuit for calculating a moving average of a correlation output of the correlation circuit. A transmission mode is assumed to be one of a plurality of transmission modes. The delay time of the delay circuit is set at a time corresponding to a symbol time length of the assumed transmission mode. The number of times that the output of the moving average circuit exceeds a prescribed value is counted. Based on counting results, the actual transmission mode is identified based on the maximum number of times that the output of the moving average circuit exceeds the prescribed value.
