  • Publication number: 20230335321
    Abstract: A magnetic core material contains an Fe-based soft magnetic powder in which an inorganic insulating film 4b is formed on a surface of an Fe-based soft magnetic particle 4a, and an epoxy resin 4c containing a curing agent. The Fe-based soft magnetic particle 4a is formed of a pure iron powder or a low-alloy steel powder. A content of the epoxy resin containing the curing agent is 2 to 5 mass %. The epoxy resin is a mixture of a bisphenol A-type epoxy resin and a novolac-type epoxy resin.

  • Patent number: 10584803
    Abstract: A solenoid valve includes: a cylindrical spool that has an annular groove in an outer surface and moves along an axial direction under a driving force generated by a current being applied to a solenoid part; a cylindrical sleeve that has a through-hole capable of communicating with the annular groove and houses the spool; and an urging member that urges the spool by an urging force acting in a direction opposite from a direction in which the driving force is generated. When no current is applied to the solenoid part, a part of the through-hole communicates with the annular groove. When a current is applied to the solenoid part, an area of communication between the through-hole and the annular groove increases as the spool moves under the driving force acting against the urging force.

  • Publication number: 20040179511
    Abstract: At member registration step, a master transmits a certificate and a priority to a slave. The certificate indicates that the slave receiving it belongs to the same data synchronization group as the master. The priority is used to solve a data conflict. At data synchronization step, after it is determined that members belong to the same data synchronization group by the certificate, data synchronization processing is performed between arbitrary members in which an input device and a display device such as wrist watch are limited. Data synchronization does not require a specific server.

  • Publication number: 20010023433
    Abstract: A broadcasting station creates a broadcast schedule for broadcasting advertisement information. An information providing apparatus receives the broadcast schedule through a communication network, changes the broadcast schedule based on advertisement rates for broadcasting the advertisement information, and creating a commercial program guide. The commercial program guide is transmitted through a communication network and received by an information storage apparatus. The information storage apparatus automatically records and stores the advertisement information from the broadcasting station based on the received commercial program guide. Also, commercials can be reproduced according to classifications in accordance with the commercial program guide. Thus, it is made possible to automatically record a commercial according to advertisement rates and to display a commercial as desired by a user.
