  • Patent number: 6615873
    Abstract: A choke valve for an automatic transmission is formed from a valve hole having a circular section that runs through a valve body in its thickness direction and a columnar valve main body that is fitted in the valve hole. The valve main body has a pair of annular channels formed on the outer periphery of the valve main body at opposite ends and a small diameter section formed between the two annular channels, the small diameter section together with the valve hole forming a choke. An inlet port and an outlet port formed between two separator plates and oil channels formed on opposite faces of the valve body communicate with the pair of annular channels, respectively. Thus, the structure of the choke valve for an automatic transmission is simplified, thereby reducing the cost.

  • Patent number: 6397695
    Abstract: Shift valves 141, 142, 143 are provided to switch oil passage connections to a state in which an oil pressure in one hydraulic clutch of an arbitrary speed transmission train and an oil pressure in a hydraulic clutch of a transmission train which is adjacent thereto as seen in the order of speed are controllable by a pair of linear solenoid valves 201, 202. Skipped speed change from a predetermined first speed transmission train to a second speed transmission train which is not adjacent to the first speed transmission train is made possible. In concrete, a large-capacity accumulator A5 is connected to an oil passage L19 which is in communication with 5th-speed hydraulic clutch C5. At the time of skipped speed changing from 5th speed to 3rd speed, shift valves 141, 142, 143 are switched to a state of 3rd-4th speed change. The oil pressures in the hydraulic clutches C3, C4 for 3rd and 4th speed transmission trains, respectively, are made controllable by the linear solenoid valves 201, 202.

  • Patent number: 6034444
    Abstract: A power supply system includes a plurality of power supply devices which are mounted in a mount region and a control [means] unit (namely, a central processing unit), The control [means] unit is connected to the power supply devices and sets a power supply quantity to be supplied to an external load apparatus. [Herein,] The power supply devices are assigned connection positions as addresses in the mount region[, respectively]. Further, the power supply devices send the connection positions as connection position signals into the control [means] unit. The control means determines the number of the power supply devices based upon the connection position signals and sets the power supply quantity based upon the number.
