  • Publication number: 20210332611
    Abstract: A safety switch includes a processor and a display device. The processor is configured to: set an operation mode of the safety switch; an output unit configured to output a mode notification signal for indicating whether the operation mode of the safety switch is in a maintenance mode; receive an input of a display control signal based upon a system operation mode of a switch system including the safety switch and at least one other safety switch. In response to reception of the input of the display control signal based upon a fact that the system operation mode is in a system maintenance mode indicating that at least one of operation modes of the safety switch and the at least one other safety switch is set to the maintenance mode, the display device displays the indication indicating that the system operation mode is in the system maintenance mode.

  • Patent number: 7187867
    Abstract: The present invention provides a bilateral communication network system, particularly, a optical wireless communication system communicating information frames via an optical node mounted on a mobile object and a plurality of optical repeaters connected to a wired network, which can prevent transfer performance from deteriorating without increasing frames to be transferred. The optical wireless communication system is constituted as follows. A plurality of the optical repeaters having functions to switch information frames are attached to a ceiling. The optical node bilaterally communicating with the optical repeaters are mounted on a moving object such as a robot, a vehicle or the like. Information frames including address information of the optical node are periodically transmitted from an information processor connected to the optical node via optical wireless communication.

  • Publication number: 20040095184
    Abstract: A driving circuit for a light emitting device keeping its excellent eye pattern by improving an extinction ratio and reducing power consumption, can be provided by arranging the following way. The driving circuit has a driving unit having a frequency response curve indicating opposite property to a frequency response curve of the light emitting device. The driving unit comprises a power outputting type amplifier constituted by a transistor having a gain curve increasing with a predetermined gradient starting from a cut-off frequency of the light emitting device. The amplifier comprises a frequency generating unit constituted by a capacitor and a resistance for generating a desired frequency, a current multiplier unit constituted by a current mirror circuit comprising 7 transistors and a discharge circuit for applying a reverse current, which is distributed from the current multiplier circuit, to the light emitting device.

  • Patent number: 5739520
    Abstract: A scanner guide slides along a guide rail aligned with a scanning path of the scanner. A positioner with projections or holes on the guide rail cooperates with holes or projections in the guide to identify a position of the scanner within bounds equal to or less than a maximum scanning path. The scanner is swingable between a scanning position overlying a bar code and an upright non-use position displaced from the bar code scanning surface. A bar code of extended length can be precisely verified as well as a shorter bar code by the bar code reader.

  • Patent number: 5589678
    Abstract: A scanner of a bar code verifier is provided with a viewing window that allows the operator to align the scanner and a bar code to be scanned by the scanner. However, such a viewing window also allows external light to enter the scanner and reduce the accuracy with which the bar code is verified. This problem is solved by a scanner 1 of a bar code verifier according to the invention provided with a blind shutter 8 that can selectively open or close the viewing window 7 so that, during the operation of reading and verifying the bar code, the viewing window 7 may be closed by the blind shutter 8 to improve the accuracy with which the bar code is verified.

  • Patent number: 4124296
    Abstract: This specification discloses an original urging device for enabling an original to be well placed and supported on the original supporting carriage of a copying machine, a printing machine or the like. The supporting member for the original urging plate of the device has one end thereof pivotally supported. A point for taking the resilient force of a resilient member is provided at a point on the supporting member. During replacement of the original, the original urging plate may be made stationary within a predetermined range of angles facilitating the handling of the urging plate, in accordance with the rotated position of the supporting member and by the relationship between the moment produced by the gravity force acting to the supporting member and urging plate and the moment produced by the resilient force of the resilient member.
