  • Publication number: 20240190213
    Abstract: In a thermal management system, a low-temperature side heat medium circuit includes a first circuit, a second circuit, a coupling part, and a flow rate adjustment part. The first circuit includes a first heat exchange unit, and is configured such that a heat medium can circulate via a chiller and the first heat exchange unit. The second circuit includes a second heat exchange unit, and is configured such that the heat medium can circulate via the second heat exchange unit and a heat medium pump. A controller controls an operation of the flow rate adjustment part and adjusts the flow rate of the heat medium in the coupling part, so as to make a temperature zone of the heat medium flowing through the first circuit and a temperature zone of the heat medium flowing through the second circuit have respective determined values.

  • Publication number: 20240185656
    Abstract: A fusion splicing system includes a fusion splicer including a fusion mechanism to fusion-splice optical fibers, and a control unit configured to control an operation of the fusion mechanism, a first information terminal capable of communicating with the fusion splicer, and a server capable of communicating with the first information terminal. The control unit is configured to set locking on an operation of the fusion mechanism before use. The first information terminal acquires locking release information to temporarily release the locking setting from the server, and transmits a locking release command signal including the locking release information to the fusion splicer. The control unit determines whether or not the locking release information included in the received locking release command signal is appropriate, and temporarily releases the locking setting on the fusion mechanism to enable the fusion mechanism when the locking release information is appropriate.

  • Publication number: 20240182258
    Abstract: A sheet folding apparatus includes a conveyor, a first folding roller, a second folding roller, a third folding roller, a guide, a motor, and a driving force transmission mechanism. The motor causes the second folding roller to perform either forward rotation in which the second folding roller rotates to convey a sheet on a main conveying path in a conveying direction and to convey the sheet on a reflux conveying path from a joining position toward a branching position or backward rotation in a direction opposite to the forward rotation. The driving force transmission mechanism rotates the guide toward a first posture from a second posture in conjunction with the forward rotation of the second folding roller and rotates the guide from the first posture toward the second posture in conjunction with the backward rotation of the second folding roller.
