  • Patent number: 10378183
    Abstract: A wheel loader comprises a console box and a support component. The console box is disposed on the side of an operator's seat and is able to rotate in the forward and backward direction. The support component has a rotary shaft disposed in the left and right direction under the console box, and rotatably supports the console box around the rotary shaft between an operation position in which the console box is disposed horizontally and a retracted position in which the console box is rotated rearward from the operation position and is disposed at an angle. The location of the center of gravity of the console box is disposed more to the front than the rotary shaft at the operation position, and more to the rear than the rotary shaft at the retracted position.

  • Patent number: 10370821
    Abstract: A work vehicle includes a console box disposed to a side of an operator's seat, and a support including a rotational axis disposed in a left and right direction below the console box. The console box is configured to be rotatable in a forth and back direction. The support rotatably supports the console box around the rotational axis and between an operating position in which the console box is horizontally disposed and a retracted position in which the console box is inclined at a position in which the console box has been rotated rearward from the operating position. A spacing in a horizontal direction between front and rear ends of the console box disposed in the retracted position is less than a spacing in the horizontal direction between front and rear ends of the console box disposed in the operating position.

  • Patent number: 10298216
    Abstract: A semiconductor device is provided that includes an amplification circuit, a downstream circuit, and a clipping circuit. The amplification circuit includes a sampling capacitor, a feedback capacitor, and an operational amplifier circuit. The sampling capacitor holds air input signal on which sampling is performed, as a signal whose reference is a first reference voltage. The signal that is held in the sampling capacitor is transferred to the feedback capacitor. The operational amplifier circuit amplifies the signal that is held in the sampling capacitor, according to a ratio between values of the sampling capacitor and the feedback capacitor, and outputs the amplified signal, as a signal whose reference is a second reference voltage. The clipping circuit limits a voltage of an output signal of the operational amplifier circuit to a predetermined voltage or below.

  • Patent number: 10297039
    Abstract: With a recognition device of the present invention, when a target component that is an imaging target is moved in a direction from one to another of an upper limit imaging position and a lower limit imaging position, a protruding section of the target component is imaged at each of a predetermined pitch (0.1 mm). Then, it is determined whether it is possible to recognize the position of the protruding section of the target component based on image data of each pitch (O: recognition possible, X: recognition not possible). Here, from among imaging positions (H4 to H10) according to image data for which it was determined to be possible to recognize the position of the protruding section of the target component, a position (H7) that is at a central point between a position closest to the upper limit imaging position (H4) and a position closest to the lower limit imaging position (H10) is decided as a recommended imaging position.

  • Patent number: 10196795
    Abstract: A wheel loader includes a console box, a link rod, and a shutoff valve. The console box is disposed on the side of an operator's seat, is able to rotate in the forward and backward direction between an operation position in which the console box is disposed horizontally and a retracted position in which the console box is rotated rearward from the operation position, and has a slot. The link rod is connected at one end to the slot and transmits the rotation of the console box. The link rod is able to rotate a shaft to switch between an open position in which an actuator drive-use hydraulic circuit can be actuated, and a closed position in which the actuator drive-use hydraulic circuit cannot be actuated. A second end of the link rod is linked to the shaft.
