  • Publication number: 20210302342
    Abstract: Disclosed is a thermal analyzer allowing observation of a sample. The thermal analyzer allows reliable observation of a film-like sample by solving a problem in that the film-like sample undergoes thermal deformation such as shrinkage or warping when the sample is heated or cooled. Further disclosed is a sample container for a thermal analyzer that is used to measure thermal behaviors of a sample attributable to heating or cooling of the sample and to observe the sample. The container includes a main body having a cylinder-shaped bottom and an open cylinder-shaped top and a transparent or translucent pressure plate that is in contact with an inner surface of the opening of the main body and presses down at least the pressure plate placed on a sample placed on the bottom surface of the main body.

  • Publication number: 20190064091
    Abstract: An analyzing apparatus includes a memory unit that stores analysis conditions of each standards specifying analysis conditions for each analytical technique, a control unit, and an analysis unit that performs an analysis in accordance with a predetermined analytical technique. The control unit reads out the analysis conditions of the standard, and the control unit displays analysis conditions in time sequence, the displayed analysis conditions being necessary for the analysis and selected from out of the read-out analysis conditions, or the control unit prompts to input the analysis conditions in time sequence. When the analysis conditions are input, the control unit determines whether or not the input analysis conditions comply with the read-out analysis conditions, and in a case where a result of the determination is positive, the control unit displays a next analysis condition being necessary for the analysis, or the control unit prompts to input the next analysis condition.

  • Patent number: 9922543
    Abstract: A security sensor system is provided which allows the stopping of the device due to the end of a battery life to be postponed by suppressing battery power consumption, which is caused due to an object detection operation of the security sensor system, after a low battery state is detected. The security sensor system is powered by a battery. When a low battery detector detects a reduction in the voltage of the battery, an object detection operation of the security sensor system is switched from a normal mode to a suppression mode. Consumption of the battery in the suppression mode is suppressed.
