Provided is a charging system having a circuit for delaying power supply, and more particularly, a charging system having a circuit for delaying power supply installed on a side of a power supply apparatus, wherein the circuit for delaying power supply prevents a spark from being generated when an electronic device and the power supply apparatus are connected to each other. The circuit for delaying power supply blocks the power supply to the Vcc power terminal in the case in which the GND ground power terminal and the D signal terminal are not in an electrically shorted state and releases the blocking of the power supply to the Vcc power terminal because an operation of the transistor is changed and a charging state of the capacitor is changed in the case in which the GND ground power terminal and the D signal terminal become the electrically shorted state.


Provided is a magnetic connector module including: a pattern electrode part module 100; and a pin terminal part module 200, wherein the pattern electrode part module includes pattern electrodes 111 to 114 having a concentric circle shape, pattern electrode part magnets, and a pattern electrode part connector, wherein the pin terminal part module includes a plurality of pin terminals 211 to 215, pin terminal part magnets, and a pin terminal part connector wherein the plurality of pin terminals include a power terminal VCC (211), a ground power terminal GND (214), and a signal terminal S (215), wherein an electrode contacting the ground power terminal GND and an electrode contacting the signal terminal S among the pattern electrodes are electrically short-circuited, and wherein the pin terminal part module includes the power supply blocking circuit allowing power supply to the power terminal VCC only in a state in which the ground power terminal GND and the signal terminal S are electrically short-circuited.

Beam placement during bridge construction by a carriage moving across an abutment or pier, supporting the end of a beam or pipe to position and align it on the abutment. A lift assembly lowers the end and the carriage is disengaged and moved to receive another beam, placing multiple parallel beams, without requiring a large crane. A carriage formed in sections separates to return to a new position. A screw jack or hydraulic unit moves the lift assembly, and deposits the beam on a load plate, and opposed separately-operated lift plates connected by a hinged cross-bar may form a beam-receiving basket assembly. Carriage rollers bear against a channel iron that protects underlying concrete structure from damage. A first set of rollers may bear against a horizontal surface and a second set of rollers bear against a vertical face of the abutment, aligning the carriage and beam along orthogonal axes.


Provided is a magnetic connector module including: a pattern electrode part module; and a pin terminal part module, wherein the pattern electrode part module includes pattern electrodes having a concentric circle shape, pattern electrode part magnets, and a pattern electrode part connector, wherein the pin terminal part module includes a plurality of pin terminals, pin terminal part magnets, and a pin terminal part connector wherein the plurality of pin terminals include a power terminal VCC, a ground power terminal GND, and a signal terminal S, wherein an electrode contacting the ground power terminal GND and an electrode contacting the signal terminal S among the pattern electrodes are electrically short-circuited, and wherein the pin terminal part module includes the power supply blocking circuit allowing power supply to the power terminal VCC only in a state in which the ground power terminal GND and the signal terminal S are electrically short-circuited.


Provided are a double contact point switch and a magnetic connector having the same. The double contact point switch includes: a pin part; an additional terminal part; and an elastic part applying elastic force to the pin part, wherein the pin part includes a front contact point and a rear contact point, the pin part moves rearward when external force is applied to the front contact point of the pin part and again moves forward when the external force of the front contact point disappears, by the elastic part, and the rear contact point contacts the additional terminal part when the pin part moves rearward. As a result of this configuration, it is possible to confirm whether or not a contact of a magnetic connector was made without installing a separate signal terminal in the magnetic connector.
