  • Publication number: 20200049644
    Abstract: A temperature and humidity sensor module sensing method for enabling a temperature and humidity sensor in an electric product to provide the detected humidity message to a micro control unit for determination. According to the characteristic curve of a known humidity sensor, the micro control unit determines that the humidity value rising slope exceeds a predetermined rising slope for a specific period of time, or the relative humidity rises a predetermined percentage for a specified period of time, or a high humidity limit continues for a specific period of time, indicating that the surface of the temperature and humidity sensor is attached or condensed with water molecules. Then, the micro control unit controls the heating element to heat-dry the temperature and humidity sensor, keeping the temperature and humidity sensor in the optimal working condition.

    Abstract: A water quality sensor includes a housing including a light transmissive bucket mounted in an electrical washing appliance and a light transmissive inner barrel mounted in the bucket, an actuation module mounted in the inner barrel for detecting a water quality of a washing solution in the electrical washing appliance. Thus, if the bucket is cracked during manufacturing or due to a collision, the actuation module can still be well protected by the inner barrel, so that the washing solution in the electrical washing machine does not directly flow into and contact with the actuation module to cause an accidental short circuit of the circuit substrate of the actuation module, improving the water resistance and service life of the water quality sensor.
