  • Publication number: 20210341862
    Abstract: A tubular fuser device rotates and is in contact with a sheet on which a positively charged toner image is formed to fix the toner image to the sheet. The fuser device includes a tubular substrate made of a metal, a rubber layer covering the outer periphery of the substrate, an adhesion layer covering the outer periphery of the rubber layer, and a surface layer made of a resin covering the outer periphery of the adhesion layer. In the fuser device, a charge decay ?V at a moment 120 seconds after end of charging a surface of the surface layer to ?1 kV is zero, and an electrostatic capacity per unit area C in a thickness direction of the fuser device is equal to or less than 3.30 pF/cm2.

  • Patent number: 9882561
    Abstract: An input device includes an insulation substrate, a switch element, and a detection portion. The switch element includes a fixed electrode portion that is provided on the substrate, and a movable electrode portion that is provided on a main surface side of the substrate, at least part of the movable electrode portion being elastically displaceable toward a direction approaching and leaving the fixed electrode portion. The movable electrode portion is displaceable toward a direction approaching the fixed electrode portion due to pressure from an object to be detected that is an electric conductor. The detection portion is capable of detecting a capacitance change caused by the object to be detected approaching and leaving the movable electrode portion and a capacitance change between the movable electrode portion and the fixed electrode portion produced by displacement of the movable electrode portion due to pressing.

  • Publication number: 20050180439
    Abstract: An RARP server receives ARP requests that application servers send when they get started. The RARP server records MAC addresses and IP addresses of the application servers. Thereafter, when a client terminal tries to execute an application and needs to access an application server, if the client terminal does not know an IP address of the application server, the client terminal broadcasts an RARP request that describes an MAC address of the application server and obtains an IP address of the application server from the RARP server. Thus, the client terminal accesses the server with the MAC address and IP address of the application server and performs a predetermined data communication.
