  • Publication number: 20190259985
    Abstract: In an upper cell unit (2146) and a lower cell unit (2147) comprising five battery cells, positive electrode terminals (2162, 2172) are set apart and aligned vertically, and negative electrode terminals (2167, 2177) are set apart and aligned vertically. When an electrical device body is rated at 36V, device-side terminals are in contact only at the upper terminals (2162, 2167), and short circuiting of the lower terminals (2172, 2177) is effected using a short bar 2059. When the electrical device body is rated at 18V, the upper and lower terminals (2162 and 2172, 2167 and 2177) are simultaneously made to contact the device-side terminals, and the upper cell unit (2146) and the lower cell unit (2147) assume a parallel connected state. Thus, it is possible to automatically switch the output voltage when a battery pack is mounted according to the difference in terminal shape on the electrical device body side.

  • Publication number: 20190243758
    Abstract: A storage control device includes a processor that reads out a group write area, in which data blocks are arranged, from a storage medium and store the group write area in a buffer area. The processor releases a part of the payload area for each data block arranged in the first group write area stored in the first buffer area. The part stores invalid data. The processor performs the garbage collection by performing data refilling. The data refilling is performed by moving valid data stored in the payload to fill up a front by using the released part, and updating an offset included in a header stored in a header area at a position indicated by index information corresponding to the moved valid data without changing the position indicated by the index information corresponding to the moved valid data. The header area is included in the data block.

  • Patent number: 10316422
    Abstract: A fuel cell separator 60 having a metal plate and an anticorrosion resin coating layer 55 formed thereon is provided, with which adhesion between the resin coating layer 55 and its counterpart member is further increased and the durability of a fuel cell unit is improved. In forming the fuel cell separator 60 having a separator substrate 50 that is a metal plate and an anticorrosion resin coating layer 55 formed thereon, the resin coating layer 55 is formed such that it has a surface roughness Ra of 0.5 to 13.5 ?m. Increasing the surface roughness will produce an anchoring effect, which will improve the adhesive force at the interface. The aforementioned surface roughness Ra can be obtained either with the use of fillers that are mixed into the resin coating layer 55 or with external force applied to the surface of the resin coating layer 55 by means of shot blasting, for example.
