Abstract

An aspect of the present invention allows for determining a cause of abnormality in output of a light-receiving element among light-receiving elements in a multiple optical-axis photoelectric sensor. A multiple optical-axis photoelectric sensor (1) determines that electrical noise occurs, in a case where abnormality in output occurs in both of adjacent light-receivable periods (Ts) in one light-receiving cycle (Tc).

Abstract

In order to generate a determination algorithm for determining whether or not mountain-shaped blood pressure changes included in time-series blood pressure data are blood pressure surges, the present invention classifies a plurality of feature amounts which enable characterization of waveforms of the blood pressure surges, and defines a primary candidate feature amount category group including at least an amplitude-related feature amount category, an increase-related feature amount category, and a decrease-related feature amount category (S11). A plurality of sets of feature amounts and threshold values are created for each of the feature amount categories (S12). All sets of the feature amounts and the threshold values in the primary candidate feature amount category group are used as respective sets of classifiers, and it is determined whether or not the plurality of mountain-shaped blood pressure changes included in training data Dte are classified as blood pressure surges (S13). Regarding determination results as the respective sets of classifiers, assessment indexes are obtained (S14). Among the obtained assessment indexes, a set of the threshold value and the feature amount giving the most preferable values are determined as a set of a first threshold value and a first feature amount forming an element of the determination algorithm (S15).

Abstract

The present invention suppresses the occurrence of cyclic data in a ring wiring. A plurality of slaves include first slaves constituting the start and end points of a ring wiring and a plurality of second slaves connected between the start and end points, the ring wiring being capable of configuring a first path via which the second slaves cause data accepted from the start point to be cyclically transferred to the end point, and a second path for each slave to loop back the data from the device itself when the path between the slave and an adjacent slave is cut off. When the path is recovered from the disconnection, a master transmits a command for switching the second path to the first path to the slave that carries out the loopback, and sends out data after the elapse of a time based on a propagation delay time from the time of this transmission.

Each of the program modules contains a program, and can define a first variable which is a variable that can be referenced among all program modules, a second variable which is a variable that can be referenced among the plurality of program modules, and a third variable which is a variable referenced in each program module. The update means maintains the variable name of the first variable contained in the imported program module, and when the variable name of the second variable contained in the imported program module overlaps the variable name of the second variable contained in any of the program modules of the project, the update means accepts a change of the overlapping variable name.

Abstract

A controller includes a processor and a communication circuit. The controller controls an object of control by sequentially repeating, on a predetermined control cycle, the transmission of the output data, the reception of the input data, and execution of a control program for generating the output data using the input data. In the transmission of the output data, the processor executes: storing of the output data in a frame, the output data having been generated by the execution of the control program in a previous control cycle; and control of the communication circuit such that the frame, in which the output data is stored, is transmitted to the object of control. The processor executes, in a current control cycle, at least a part of the storing of the output data in a frame that is to be executed in a next control cycle.

Abstract

There has been desired a technology for performing a publishing setting of a variable to an external device more easily. A development assistance device provides a development tool configured to develop a user program for controlling a controller. The user program includes at least one variable belonging to a predetermined namespace. The development tool is configured to accept, for the namespace, a publishing setting for causing the controller to determine whether to publish the variable belonging to the namespace to an external device that is communicatively connected to the controller. A communication interface transfers the user program and the publishing setting to the controller on the basis of acceptance of transfer operation of the user program by the development tool.
