  • Publication number: 20200203080
    Abstract: A mounting structure minimizes the influence of displacements, along a length direction of a resistor, in mounting positions of capacitor electrodes on the electrical characteristics of a circuit including a parallel circuit composed of a capacitor and the resistor. The capacitor has first and second electrodes, which respectively include first and second side surface portions disposed in parallel to a length direction of the resistor. The resistor has a first resistance body corresponding to the first side surface portions and a second resistance body corresponding to the second side surface portions that are separately disposed along the length direction and connected in series via a wire, and is mounted so that the first resistance body is positioned directly facing the first side surface portions and the second resistance body is positioned directly facing the second side surface portions.

  • Patent number: 10484118
    Abstract: An intercom system includes first and second communication networks, a network connector (cable connector, reception driver, and transmission driver), an operation setter, and a connection controller. Each of the first and second communication networks includes an entrance slave device and an intercom master device, and performs communication by time division duplex. The network connector is used for connecting the communication networks. The operation setter sets share or unshare in order to indicate whether or not information stored in a slot is shared between the first communication network and the second communication network, for each slot. The connection controller controls the network connector to perform connection or disconnection (operation of transmission driver) between the first communication network and the second communication network, in accordance with settings of the share or the unshare.

  • Patent number: 10284357
    Abstract: A connection status detector of a controller determines that a two-wire cable is forward connected, in a case where a synchronization pattern of reception data completely coincides with a synchronization pattern for forward connection check. The connection status detector determines that the two-wire cable is reversely connected, in a case where the synchronization pattern of reception data completely coincides with a synchronization pattern for reverse connection check. A transmission data inverter reverses an uplink signal output from a transmission data processor, in a case where it is determined that the two-wire cable is reversely connected. A reception data inverter reverses a downlink signal output from a reception driver, in a case where it is determined that the two-wire cable is reversely connected.
