  • Patent number: 10868288
    Abstract: An attachment member attaches a bicycle battery pack to a frame of a bicycle. The attachment member includes a coupling member and a lock. The coupling member restricts movement of the bicycle battery pack relative to the frame while the attachment member is in an attachment state in which the battery pack is attached to the frame. The coupling member extends through a first frame portion of the frame and coupled to a first housing portion of the housing while the attachment member is in the attachment state. The lock is provided on the coupling member and switchable between a restriction state that restricts movement of the coupling member relative to the housing and the frame, and a release state that permits movement of the coupling member relative to the housing and the frame while the attachment member is in the attachment state.

  • Publication number: 20200126342
    Abstract: A supplying apparatus and a supplying method of granular material in which granular material is supplied to a measuring container provided on a lower side so as to reach a target measurement value which is determined in advance. The supplying apparatus includes a storage container storing granular material, a valve body provided in the storage container so as to be opened when granular material is supplied, and a control section controlling open and close operations of the valve body. The control section keeps the valve body at an open position until a detection value of a detecting section of the measuring container becomes a predetermined value smaller than the target measurement value when the target measurement value exceeds a threshold value which is determined in advance. The control section opens the valve body in a pulsed way until the detection value of the detecting section becomes the target measurement value when the target measurement value is under the threshold value.

  • Patent number: 10170737
    Abstract: A battery holder includes a first base, a first holding portion and a second holding portion. The first base is opposed to a first end of the battery unit in the state in which the battery unit is located at a first holding position. The first holding portion is movably arranged on the first base between a first position, where the first holding portion contacts a held portion of the battery unit to hold the battery unit at the first holding position, and a second position, where the first holding portion is separated from the held portion. The second holding portion is arranged on the first base at a downstream side of the first holding portion in a removal direction of the battery unit from the battery holder to hold the battery unit at a second holding position that is located at a downstream side of the first holding position.
