  • Patent number: 10910174
    Abstract: A push-button switch may include a housing, an operation unit, a lock lever unit, and a biasing portion. A lever support portion may be connected to the operation unit so as to be movable together with the operation unit when a lever body is positioned at a second position. The housing may have a deformation portion that, when the operation unit is pulled in an opening direction when the lever body is positioned at the second position, deforms the lever body so as to be capable of releasing the pressing to the lever body by a holding unit.

  • Patent number: 10876743
    Abstract: A settings data storage stores unique serial numbers and information regarding a plurality of patterns for alternately switching between normal operation for operating at high capacity and suppressed operation for operating at low capacity each unit time. A pattern specifier determines information for a pattern set in accordance with even and odd serial numbers. A water-heating heat amount determiner determines a heat amount necessary for water heating. A water heating scheduler establishes a water heating plan based on information regarding the pattern determined by the pattern determiner and the water-heating heat amount as determined by the water-heating heat amount determiner. A water heating controller alternately switches between normal operating and suppressed operation to heat water in accordance with the water heating plan established by the water heating scheduler.

  • Publication number: 20190339120
    Abstract: A state monitoring system for a rotating machine includes: a sensor head; a preamplifier; a main unit; and a temperature sensor The sensor head includes: an acceleration sensor configured to measure vibrations of the motor and output a vibration value; and a temperature sensor configured to measure a surface temperature of the motor and output a rotating machine surface temperature value. The main unit includes: a processor configured to compare a current vibration value with a determination threshold value and determine the state of the motor; a display unit configured to display the vibration value, the rotating machine surface temperature value, and the ambient temperature value; an output unit configured to output a determination result of the processor; and a communication unit configured to receive the determination threshold value from a host system and transmit the current vibration value and the determination result to the host system.

  • Publication number: 20070064536
    Abstract: By nondestructively detecting a condition of ground 3 to be surveyed by using surface wave exploration means 4, using data analysis means 5 to calculate an S-wave velocity structure of the ground based on data detected by the surface wave exploration means 4, identifying a soil phase distribution of the ground by using a soil phase criteria table that is preset about a correspondence between S-wave velocities and soil phases based on a calculated S-wave velocity structure, and identifying an N-value distribution of the ground by using an N-value conversion expression or an N-value conversion table that is preset about a correspondence between S-wave velocities and N-values, an absorbed/released unit heat quantity per unit thickness of the ground 3, which provides a parameter, is estimated on the basis of the soil phase distribution and the N-value distribution that are identified by using a heat quantity conversion table that is preset about a relationship between the soil phase and a heat quantity and a rela
