  • Patent number: 9409556
    Abstract: A brake fluid pressure controlling actuator is equipped with a block, an electric device secured to the block, and a casing attached to the block, and a board support with a stay. The brake fluid pressure controlling actuator is designed to have the board support disposed in the casing and also have a circuit board placed in contact with the stay of the board support. The stay of the board support serves to firmly hold a portion of the circuit board around a through-hole formed in the circuit board when a terminal of an electric device is press-fitted into the through-hole, thereby minimizing the degree of bending of the circuit board to ensure the stability in electrically connecting the electric device to the circuit board.

  • Patent number: 8678341
    Abstract: To minimize the amount of air that may enter the damper chamber in a normally closed solenoid valve to stably maintain the damper capacity, the normally closed solenoid valve has a valve housing and a movable element. A cylinder having an open end is formed in one of the valve housing and the movable element. The cylinder has an inner diameter smaller than the outer diameter of a trunk of the movable element. A piston provided on the other of the valve chamber and the movable element is movable relative to the cylinder as the movable member moves. The piston is inserted into the cylinder through its open end to define a damper chamber between the piston and the cylinder. A restricted passage is formed between the damper chamber and the valve chamber through which hydraulic fluid can be moved between the valve chamber and the damper chamber.
