  • Publication number: 20160251557
    Abstract: Provided is a latent heat transfer material that is micro-encapsulated, said material exhibiting superior mechanical strength and heat resistance. A production method for the latent heat transfer material that is micro-encapsulated in a hard shell comprises: 1) a step in which a perforate hollow silica particle is manufactured; 2) a step in which the phase change material is sealed inside the perforate hollow silica particle by inserting the perforate hollow silica particle in a molten solution of the phase change material and repeatedly subjecting the same to vibrations such as ultrasound oscillations; 3) a step in which the perforate hollow silica particle having the phase change material sealed within is washed in a saturated aqueous solution of the phase change material; and 4) a step in which perhydropolysilazane is used to coat the outer shell of the perforate hollow silica particle with silica.

  • Patent number: 8732292
    Abstract: A network system suitable for remote monitoring or remote control of equipments is provided. When an execution of a server-side object is requested from a client terminal device to a server, the server requests an execution of an equipment-side object to the equipment(s). The execution request of the server-side object from the client terminal device is performed by use of a first identifier assigned to the server-side object, and the execution request of the equipment-side object is performed by use of a second identifier assigned to the equipment-side object. Since the server has an identifier setting function of setting a correspondence relation between the first identifier and the second identifier, it is possible to reduce burden on the client terminal device, and flexibly cope with cases of exchanging and increasing the equipment(s) in the network system without considering specific identification information of the equipments such as IP address.

  • Patent number: 4599598
    Abstract: A data transmission system utilizing a power line comprises a transmitter (1), a receiver (2) and a repeater (5) coupled to a power line (3). Control data including a start code in the form of a high frequency signal is transmitted from the transmitter (1) in superposition on an alternating current of the commercial power supply using the power line. The repeater receives the control data transmitted from the transmitter, thereby to store the control data in a memory responsive to the start code. The control data is then read from the memory after the lapse of a predetermined period of time and is retransmitted to the receiver in a predetermined level. The receiver receives the control data, thereby to control an apparatus being controlled such as a relay, whereupon the same transmits in a return manner the data representing a control state thereof. The repeater receives the data and transmits the same to the transmitter.

  • Patent number: 4514719
    Abstract: A transmitter connected to any phase of a 3-phase alternating current transmits a data subsequent to a lock signal in synchronism with the cycles of the phase. A receiver connected to any phase of the 3-phase alternating current receives a lock signal in synchronism with the cycles of the phase. The receiver receives each data after the receiver is synchronized with the transmitter using the lock signal. The synchronized relation is maintained, that is locked until each data transmission subsequent to a lock signal is terminated. The lock is released upon detection of an end signal added to the last portion of each data or a non-busy signal interval. In the case wherein a data transmission is repeated a plurality of times, a set of signals including a lock signal and a data is repeatedly sent out, interleaved with a non-busy signal interval.
