  • Patent number: 11408776
    Abstract: Disclosed is a power supply device including a battery having an exhaust valve that opens when an internal pressure becomes higher than a set pressure, the battery being housed in a case, a temperature sensor that detects a temperature in the case, and a detection circuit that detects opening of the exhaust valve at a detected temperature detected by the temperature sensor. In this power supply device, the detection circuit detects that a high temperature time (t1) from a timing at which a rate of rise (?T/?t) of the temperature detected by the temperature sensor is higher than a rise rate set value and exceeds the rise rate set value to a timing at which the detected temperature falls to less than or equal to a reference temperature is longer than a high temperature time set value, and detects the opening of the exhaust valve.

  • Patent number: 7729221
    Abstract: The invention provides an optical disk device that has a laser unit including a first objective lens and a second objective lens. A numerical aperture of the first objective lens is different from a numerical aperture of the second objective lens. The optical disk device has a first focus driver that detects a first voltage value indicating the value of a driving voltage to drive the first objective lens when light beams are irradiated onto the surface of an optical disk via the first objective lens and a focus is achieved. The optical disk device has a second focus driver that detects a second voltage value indicating the value of a driving voltage to drive the second objective lens when light beams are irradiated onto the recording surface of said optical disk via the second objective lens and a focus is achieved. The optical disk device has a controller that discriminates the type of an optical disk, based on a difference between the first voltage value and the second voltage value.
