  • Publication number: 20240242917
    Abstract: The purpose of the present disclosure is to provide a high-voltage insulating structure capable of reducing an electric field around a conductor to which a high voltage is applied. In this high-voltage insulating structure, an electrically conductive part, to which a high voltage is applied and which extends in an axial direction, is surrounded by an insulator, wherein the insulator comprises a first insulator 105, a second insulator 203 positioned on the opposite side from the first insulator in the axial direction, and a third insulator 205 positioned between the first and second insulators. The electrical resistivity of the third insulator 205 is smaller than the electrical resistivities of the first and second insulators. As for the thickness of the third insulator 205 in the axial direction, a first thickness at the outer side farther from the electrically conductive part is less than a second thickness at the inner side closer to the electrically conductive part.

  • Patent number: 10474598
    Abstract: A microcomputer is provided for each of industrial apparatuses to synchronously control them and includes a CPU, a peripheral module, and a communication interface. The peripheral module controls an external apparatus based on a specified control parameter. The communication interface includes a time register that is synchronized with the other apparatuses in time series. The communication interface issues a CPU interrupt and a peripheral module interrupt to the CPU and the peripheral module, respectively, if a successively settled correction time matches the time register. In response to the peripheral module interrupt, the peripheral module changes the control parameter from a current value to an update value. In response to the CPU interrupt, the CPU starts an update program to calculate the next update value for the control parameter and writes the calculated value to the peripheral module.
