  • Patent number: 6380702
    Abstract: The invention relates to a control system for a commutator motor which is operated by phase-fired control. Allocation of a first and second control device in a single operating state without transition makes it possible to obtain constant jolting rotation of said motor by continuously varied cutting of the half-waves into first and second area sections (8,7) of an alternative current voltage. The inventive type of control system can be used advantageously in electric screwing or drilling tools.

  • Patent number: 6280145
    Abstract: A suspending structure of a ceiling fan is disclosed. Since in the prior art suspending structure of a ceiling fan, the swinging angle of a swinging pipe set is confined by the assembly hole of a suspender, a swinging pipe set, a hanging bell and other components. Therefore, the swing is preformed in a small angle. For a surface (such as ceiling) with a large inclined angle, it can not be used and is very dangerous. Therefore, in the present invention, two sides of the assembly hole of a suspender are formed with a cavity and an opening, and the engaging hole of the hanging bell is formed with long sides. Two ends of the long side are placed on the cavity and opening of the suspender. Thereby, as the swinging pipe set shifts toward said cavity, said swinging pipe is received within one end of said long side of the cavity. Therefore, a swing of large angle is generated, moreover, said swinging path of the swinging pipe set is confined by said buckle and said trench.
