  • Patent number: 11026340
    Abstract: A passenger protection control device for effectively preventing an infiltration of water into the interior of a case without the use of a sealant includes: a printed circuit board; a connector; and a case that accommodates such that, while a connection end surface with a wire harness of the connector is exposed, the printed circuit board is isolated from the outside. The case is formed by: a box shaped cover in which the periphery of a ceiling wall is enclosed by side walls and a floor surface is opened; and a rear cover that plugs the floor surface of the cover. The connector is installed in an opening provided in the side wall of the cover. The rear cover has a first standing wall projecting so as to face a connector in the portion of the cover in which the connector is installed. The first standing wall of the rear cover has a planar region in a head top part. The planar region has an inclined surface having a falling gradient facing outwardly from the cover.

  • Patent number: 8846152
    Abstract: There is provided an antioxidant agent capable of preventing scale from being produced on the surface of a heated metallic starting material more effectively than the conventional antioxidant agent. The antioxidant agent according to the present invention contains a plurality of glass frits having different softening points and an inorganic compound having a melting point not higher than 600° C. The inorganic compound mainly softens in the low-temperature range of about 600° C. The plurality of glass frits mainly soften in the low-temperature range of about 600 to 1300° C. Therefore, the antioxidant agent covers the surface of metallic starting material in a broad temperature range, oxidizes the surface of metallic starting material, and prevents the production of scale.

  • Patent number: 8815347
    Abstract: There is provided an antioxidant agent excellent in anti-dripping property and anti-peeling property. The antioxidant agent in accordance with the present invention contains a plurality of glass frits having different softening points, potter's clay, and bentonite and/or sepiolite. On account of the potter's clay, the antioxidant agent applied to the surface of a metallic starting material is less liable to drip down. Further, on account of the bentonite and/or sepiolite, the antioxidant agent is less liable to peel off the surface of the metallic starting material.

  • Patent number: 8137643
    Abstract: An analyte testing/observing apparatus includes a microplate mounting stand 10 which supports at least one of microplates 27 having a plurality of wells 27a for accommodating an analyte and microplates 28 each having a plurality of wells 28a for accommodating a reagent, and which includes a retractable shutter 20 for covering a surface of the at least one microplate mounted on the mounting stand 10. When the dispensing work is stopped, the shutter 20 is closed and lowered, so that the shutter 20 comes into contact with the surfaces of the microplates, to thereby prevent evaporation and drying of the analyte and the reagent accommodated within the wells before being dispensed.
