  • Patent number: 10442213
    Abstract: A drying device includes a plurality of blowers to blow air onto an object to be dried, the plurality of blowers being disposed along a direction of conveyance of the object to be dried, and a plurality of heaters to heat air inside the plurality of blowers. Each of the plurality of blowers includes an elongated nozzle arranged along a nozzle direction perpendicular to the direction of conveyance of the object to be dried, and an airflow generator to generate airflow to be blown from the elongated nozzle. The plurality of blowers includes a first blower including the airflow generator at a first end of the first blower in the nozzle direction and a second blower including the airflow generator at a second end of the second blower opposite the first end in the nozzle direction.

  • Publication number: 20190277875
    Abstract: This fluid measuring device is provided with: an irradiation unit that irradiates a fluid with light; a light receiving unit that receives light scattered by the fluid; a detecting unit that detects a backflow of the fluid on the basis of a light reception signal from the light receiving unit; and a calculating unit that calculates, on the basis of the detection result by the detection unit and the light reception signal from the light receiving unit, estimated fluid information indicating the flow rate or flow speed of the fluid. Accordingly, even when a backflow of the fluid temporarily occurs, the flow speed of the fluid can be precisely measured.

  • Patent number: 10300712
    Abstract: A drying device includes a heater, a supporter, a controller, and a temperature detector. The heater heats a medium. The supporter is disposed opposite the heater to support the medium. The controller turns on the heater while the medium is conveyed, and turns off the heater when the medium is stopped. The temperature detector detects a temperature of the supporter. The controller is connected to the temperature detector to turn off the heater when the temperature detected with the temperature detector is a predetermined temperature or higher.

  • Publication number: 20060034200
    Abstract: The present invention provides a wireless communication system, a control station, and a terminal station whereby a direct link (DL) protocol can be initiated from the control station. A processor has a DL request AP packet generation unit (direct communication request generation instruction unit), which issues an instruction so that a direct link (direct communication) to a terminal station is established according to a notification issued from a packet transfer volume determination circuit when a packet transfer volume stored in a packet transfer volume memory circuit exceeds a predetermined threshold value.

  • Publication number: 20040252712
    Abstract: An information data transmitting and receiving device is provided, which can reduce a load of a host CPU. In this information data transmitting and receiving device, in a case where an identifier of received information data is coincident with a predetermined identifier, the received information data is stored in a first receiving buffer. In a case where those identifiers are different from each other, the received information data is stored in a second receiving buffer.
