  • Patent number: 10520907
    Abstract: A remote control device includes a display unit, physical keys, and a control unit to control operations of the display unit and execute various processes in accordance with commands input via the physical keys. The display unit includes a setting item display area to display setting item information pertaining to configurable setting items, and a set state display area to display information pertaining to set state of the setting items. The physical keys include at least one function key and a separate set state change key. The control unit successively selects the setting items, causes the display unit to display the setting item information, and performs an increase or decrease of a numerical value, a stage change, or a mode change relating to the setting item. The number of function keys is smaller than the number of the setting item information displayed.

  • Patent number: 10373036
    Abstract: A remote control for an air conditioner facilitates setting of various kinds of data without operation of a button. A remote control (30) includes an external communication unit (45) having an NFC circuit (42) and an NFC antenna (43). The external communication unit (45) is capable of wirelessly communicating with an external apparatus even when a microcomputer (36) in the remote control (30) is not supplied with power (i.e., in a non-operating state). Hence, through the wireless communication between the external communication unit (45) of the remote control (30) and the external apparatus, the various kinds of data is forwarded from the external device to the remote control (30), and stored in the remote control (30).

  • Patent number: 9689320
    Abstract: The temperatures of fuel oils stored in fuel tanks 12a, 12b, 12c are separately detected by temperature sensors 52a, 52b, 52c, respectively. Based on the detection results, a CPU 49 heats a heat resistant fuel oil among the fuel oils using a heat exchanger 54, such that the temperature of an oil mixture generated by mixing the fuel oils satisfies a predetermined temperature condition. After the fuel oils including the heated heat resistant fuel oil are mixed in a blender 13, the CPU 49 detects the viscosity of the generated oil mixture using a viscometer 33. Thereafter, based on the detection result, the CPU 49 controls the mixture ratio or a heating temperature of the heat resistant fuel oil, such that the viscosity of the oil mixture satisfies a predetermined viscosity condition.

  • Patent number: 8584657
    Abstract: Mixture ratios of fuel oils, which are arbitrarily combined and mixed to generate an oil mixture, are set to be mixture ratios that satisfy a predetermined viscosity condition. Based on the mixture ratios, a CPU (49) generates an oil mixture by controlling flow regulating valves (23, 24) in a blender (13). When the oil mixture is supplied to the engine (14) as a pressurizing pump (32) operates, the viscosity is detected by a viscometer (33). The CPU (49) adjusts the mixture ratios based on the detection result, such that the viscosity of the oil mixture satisfies the viscosity condition and that the content of a fuel oil having the highest viscosity among the fuel oils in the oil mixture is maximized.

  • Publication number: 20030038978
    Abstract: A broadcast receiving device comprises: a memory medium 403 that stores a received e-mail and broadcast mail, an add-on program 402b for adding an e-mail header to a broadcast mail body text, and a display program 402c that displays a broadcast mail and an e-mail stored in the memory medium 403 on a monitor 407. When a CPU 411 receives the broadcast mail according to the programs, it extracts the broadcast mail body text, adds the e-mail header to the broadcast mail, stores it in the memory medium 403. Then the CPU 411 reads out the information of the broadcast mail and the e-mail stored in the memory medium 403, and displays them in one screen.
