  • Publication number: 20220242129
    Abstract: A printer includes a carriage including a first head and a second head at least partially overlapping in a sub-scanning direction, a first wiper for wiping the first head, and a second wiper for wiping the second head. The printer moves the first wiper to a first contact position where the first wiper is configured to contact the first head, and moves the second wiper to a second non-contact position where the second wiper is not configured to contact the second head. After moving the first wiper and the second wiper, the printer relatively moves the carriage to cause the first head to pass the first wiper at the first contact position.

  • Publication number: 20200235653
    Abstract: A drive circuit for a switch drives an upper-arm switch and a lower-arm switch that include body diodes. Of the body diodes in upper- and lower-arm switches, the diode through which a feedback current flows during a dead time is a target diode. Of the upper- and lower-arm switches, the switch that includes the target diode is a target switch. The remaining switch is an opposing arm switch. The drive circuit maintains an electric potential of a control terminal relative to a second terminal of the target switch at a negative voltage over a period from a timing subsequent to a start timing of a dead time immediately after the target switch is switched to an off-state until a point within a period over which the opposing arm switch is set to an on-state, and subsequently maintains the electric potential at an off-voltage until a next dead time is ended.
