  • Patent number: 11124166
    Abstract: A hydraulic oil resupply device (40) is provided between first accumulators (15F, 15R) in a manual braking operation circuit (11) and a second accumulator (25) in an automatic brake circuit (24). The hydraulic oil resupply device (40) resupplies hydraulic oil accumulated in the second accumulator (25) to the first accumulators (15F, 15R) at the operating of a manual braking operation by an operator. This configuration can suppress a rising speed of a brake pressure at the manual operation braking from being slow. Accordingly, in a vehicular brake system, it is possible to enhance a braking capability by the manual braking operation and improve the reliability.

  • Patent number: 11125473
    Abstract: There is provided an air conditioner capable of displaying sufficient cooling ability in each indoor unit by allowing a sufficient amount of refrigerant to flow into indoor units where cooling ability cannot be displayed. By executing refrigerant amount balance control, since degrees of opening of indoor expansion valves are narrowed in indoor units whose refrigerant superheating degrees are smaller than an average refrigerant superheating degree, amounts of refrigerant flowing into the indoor expansion valves are decreased. In the indoor unit where the refrigerant superheating degree is higher than the average refrigerant superheating degree, since refrigerant pressure on a downstream side of the indoor expansion valve is also decreased due to the degrees of opening of the indoor expansion valves being narrowed, the difference in pressure between the upstream side and the downstream side of the indoor expansion valve increases and an amount of refrigerant flowing into the indoor unit is increased.
