Abstract: A temperature detector detects a temperature of an electricity storage unit installed in a casing. A controller estimates a temperature outside the casing on the basis of a detection temperature of the electricity storage unit detected by the temperature detector. The controller estimates an outdoor air temperature outside the casing on the basis of a change amount of detection temperature per a predetermined period detected in a state where a cooling unit is operated and a change amount of detection temperature per the predetermined period detected in a state where the cooling unit is stopped.
Abstract: A storage battery rack includes bottom frame portion, ceiling frame portion, long support posts, and side panels installed facing the support posts. Each support post has a plurality of attachment holes with a predetermined pitch along the longitudinal direction. Side panel has a plurality of female screw holes with a pitch corresponding to the predetermined pitch. Each side panel is attached to a pair of the support posts with screws fastened to attachment holes and the female screw holes. Side panel has a plurality of parallel support portions. A distance between support portions is set substantially equal to a total value of a predetermined height dimension of a refrigerant passage formed between a plurality of storage batteries and a predetermined height dimension of each storage battery.
Abstract: An air conditioner switches between a normal refrigeration cycle and a defrosting refrigeration cycle, and includes: a refrigerant circuit that connects a first heat exchanger, a second heat exchanger, a radiation panel, and an expansion valve that regulates a flow rate of a refrigerant flowing through the radiation panel; and a controller that causes the air conditioner to switch between the normal refrigeration cycle and the defrosting cycle. During the normal refrigeration cycle, the radiation panel performs cooling or heating. During the defrosting cycle, the first heat exchanger serves as a radiator and the second heat exchanger serves as an evaporator. During the defrosting cycle, the controller causes the expansion valve to be in a fully closed state.
Abstract: An image capture apparatus includes a determination unit that determines voltage to be supplied from a power supply apparatus to the image capture apparatus, based on a temperature of the image capture apparatus and power consumption of the image capture apparatus; a communication unit that sends the determined voltage to the power supply apparatus; and a power receiving unit that receives power supplied from the power supply apparatus to the image capture apparatus after the determined voltage is sent to the power supply apparatus.
Abstract: An aqueous binder for secondary batteries, which has a binding capacity superior than conventional binders while having fine coating property; a secondary battery electrode mixture layer composition and a secondary battery electrode which are acquired by using the binder. This binder for secondary battery electrodes contains: a crosslinked polymer or a salt thereof having a water-swelling degree of 5.0-100 at pH8.
Abstract: A rolling bearing includes an inner ring, an outer ring, and rolling elements interposed between the inner ring and the outer ring. A surface layer portion, beneath a raceway surface (10a), of a base material of a raceway ring (10) which is the inner ring or the outer ring, is a wear-resistant layer (13) which has a higher hardness than a residual portion (12), beneath the surface layer portion, of the base material, and includes a minute-recess-and-projection surface.
