  • 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.

  • Patent number: 10907366
    Abstract: A concrete vibrator can automatically change the rotational speed of a motor depending on the state of a vibrating tube. Under control by a controller, the concrete vibrator is operated in a normal mode in which the motor is supplied with driving power having a frequency to make the motor rotate at a rotational speed suitable for air bubble removal, or in an idling mode in which the motor is supplied with driving power having a frequency to make the motor rotate at a lower rotational speed than in the normal mode. The controller measures, per unit of time, a value of a current that is input to the controller or motor, compares a latest current value to a reference value calculated based on a past measurement value, and compares an absolute value of the comparison value to a threshold to grasp the state of the vibrating tube.
