  • Publication number: 20220262779
    Abstract: A semiconductor device includes a light-emitting element, a light-receiving element, an input-side terminal, a first switching element, a first lead and a resin package. The first lead includes a first mount bed and a first output-side terminal, the first switching element being mounted on the first mount bed. The resin package seals the light-emitting element, the light-receiving element, and the first switching element. The resin package includes first and second side surfaces opposite to each other. The input-side terminal protrudes from the first side surface. The first output-side terminal protrudes from the second side surface. The first switching element is sealed at a center between the first and second side surfaces. The first mount bed is arranged in a direction along the second side surface so that a side surface of the first mount bed is positioned between a center of the resin package and the first output-side terminal.

  • Publication number: 20200385211
    Abstract: A method of fulfilling orders by making orders available in order units by picking from product units in a storage facility that includes a routed product order picking area, and an automated storage and retrieval racking area that is upstream from the routed products order picking area and connected thereto by a routing conveyor. The method includes reassigning order fulfillment of orders requiring products from product units requiring many exchanges between adjoining storage racks from a source storage rack to an adjacent storage rack via cross conveyance locations in the storage racks themselves to reach a destination storage rack, where the orders are reassigned to the routed products order picking area for parallel order fulfillment such that bottlenecks within the automated storage and retrieval racking area can be prevented or at least decreased.

  • Patent number: 10738798
    Abstract: The energy recovery system includes an inertial fluid container, a low pressure container, a high pressure container, a low pressure valve, and a high pressure valve, a valve flow conduit, and a valve controller. The valve controller switches, in response to a decrease in volume of the fluid chamber, the inertial fluid container between communicating with the low pressure container and the high pressure container, thereby generating inertial forces of the working fluid flowing toward the low pressure container in the inertial fluid container, and causing the working fluid to flow into the high pressure container by the inertial forces. The valve controller sets a switching frequency for the valves to a frequency close to an Nth-order (where N is a natural number) anti-resonance frequency of a flow conduit for the working fluid.

  • Patent number: 9955035
    Abstract: Provided is a pull printing system that is capable of improving security performance over that of a typical system. When authentication based on identification information and authentication information of a person providing a transmission instruction from a user terminal is successful, a pull printing server of the pull printing system correlates a printing job from the user terminal with identification information of a person providing an execution instruction from the user terminal, and spools the printing job. When authentication based on identification information and authentication information of a person providing the execution instruction from an MFP is successful, the pull printing server sets the printing job that is related with the identification information of the person providing the execution instruction as a target candidate of pull printing when spooling the printing job that is related with the identification information of the person providing the execution instruction.
