  • Patent number: 7401757
    Abstract: Described is a fixing arrangement for releasably fixing an air conditioning module to the roof of a vehicle such as a rail vehicle. The module has opposite side surfaces from which first fixing projections project. The vehicle roof supports positioning rail members in mutually parallel relationship at a spacing from each other corresponding to the spacing between the side surfaces of the module. The positioning rail members have upwardly open first openings. Second fixing projections project from the positioning rail members at the outside thereof laterally beside the first openings.

  • Patent number: 6708513
    Abstract: The invention pertains to a climate control system for a motor vehicle (58) which comprises a compressor (14) and a corresponding compressor drive (16), an interior heat exchanger (18), an exterior heat exchanger (36), an expansion element (32) and, if so required, an internal heat exchanger (30). The device is realized in the form of a self-sufficient flat module (12) that is designed for cooling in a cooling mode and for heating in a heat pump mode. The compressor (16) consists of a high-output carbon dioxide compressor that has a small structural volume and is integrated into the module (12) together with the compressor drive (16). The carbon dioxide compressor (14) preferably has an external power control. The module (12) contains an energy connection (54) for only one form of energy in order to supply the drive of the module (12) with energy. The energy connection (54) preferably consists of an electric energy connection with only one voltage level or with several different voltage levels.

  • Patent number: 6085544
    Abstract: The compression refrigeration unit includes a compressor, a gas refrigeration unit, an expansion apparatus, and an evaporator, which are connected to one another in a circulation system, which contains a coolant, characterized in that the degree of filling of the coolant is between 50% and 100% of the critical density of the coolant. Preferably the coolant is carbon dioxide and the degree of filling of the carbon dioxide coolant is between 0.25 and 0.45 kg/L. Also provided, in another embodiment, is an intermediate heat exchanger with a first heat exchanger branch and a second heat exchanger branch, connected to the first heat exchanger branch by a thermic coupling, wherein the first heat exchanger branch is connected to the gas refrigeration unit and the expansion apparatus and the second heat exchanger branch are connected to the evaporator and the compressor.
