  • Publication number: 20200251888
    Abstract: A wiring structure includes: multiple wiring modules configured to be installed on a rail that extends in a predetermined first direction, so as to be adjacent to one another along the rail by being placed on the rail from the side of a second direction orthogonal to the first direction; an IO unit configured to be attached to the plurality of wiring modules from the second direction side to thereby be electrically connected to the multiple wiring modules. In each of the multiple wiring modules, a lead wire extending in a third direction that intersects the first direction and the second direction, from a first face of the wiring module that lies on the third direction side, is connected to the wiring module.

  • Publication number: 20200249655
    Abstract: A system includes: a first unit including a first lighting section, a first control unit controlling the first lighting section, and a first switch that can toggle between lighting and extinguishing; a second unit including a second lighting section; and a first cable connecting the first unit and the second unit. The first control unit turns on the first lighting section and also turns on the second lighting section via the first cable when the first switch is toggled in a state where the first lighting section is off, and turns off the first lighting section and also turns off the second lighting section via the first cable when the first switch is toggled in a state where the first lighting section is on.

  • Publication number: 20200234565
    Abstract: A system includes a communication circuit provided in at least one of multiple devices that are connected to a control device in a predetermined connection relationship. The control device includes: a signal transmitter designating, as a destination, one of the devices provided with the communication circuit, based on the connection relationship, and transmitting a call signal to the device designated as the destination; a receiver circuit wirelessly receiving a recall signal, which is transmitted in response to the call signal; and a determination unit determining that the control device and the device designated as the destination are connected in the connection relationship when the receiver circuit receives the recall signal. The communication circuit wirelessly transmits the recall signal to the control device when the device provided with the communication circuit itself is designated as the destination and when the device provided with the communication circuit itself receives the call signal.

  • Publication number: 20190056718
    Abstract: A machine learning device provided in a control unit observes, as state variables representing a current state of an environment, conveyance operation data indicating a state of a conveyance operation of a conveying machine and conveyance article state data indicating a state of the conveyance article, and acquires, as determination data, conveyance speed determination data indicating an appropriateness determination result relating to a conveyance speed of the conveyance article and conveyance article state determination data indicating an appropriateness determination result relating to variation in the state of the conveyance article. The conveyance operation data and the conveyance article state data are then learned in association with each other by using the state variables and the determination data.
