Gin Nam SZE-TO has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 10739031
    Abstract: A system for an automatic temperature control of a space is described. The system includes a temperature maintaining unit, a controller connected to the temperature maintaining unit, and a user device that is communicably connected to the controller. There may also be a temperature sensing unit. The controller is configured to detect a presence of a user device within its vicinity. When the user device is detected, the controller reads the personal thermal comfort parameters from the user device, that may be stored within the user device. The controller further detects the temperature of the space through the temperature sensing unit and controls various functional parameters of the temperature maintaining unit based on the personal thermal comfort parameters of the user.

  • Publication number: 20190291033
    Abstract: A device with external diaphragm for acoustic cleaning and air purification is provided. The device comprises a housing with a first opening at a top for receiving one or more acoustic wave generating devices each with a diaphragm attached to a coil; and one or more external diaphragm each covering and sealing the diaphragm attached to the coil to facilitated in protecting the acoustic wave generating device as impurities or materials deposit and accumulate on the external diaphragm instead of the diaphragm of the acoustic wave generating device, and easy cleaning as only the external diaphragm needs to be cleaned, which also avoids damage to the diaphragm of the acoustic wave generating device during cleaning.

  • Publication number: 20190076774
    Abstract: An air filter and a method of air filtration using the said air filter are described. The air filter may comprise a filter media layer adapted to capture and filter one or more impurities from air. The air filter may further comprise one or more acoustic wave generating means attached at one or more sides of the filter media layer. The one or more acoustic wave generating means may generate acoustic waves to be propagated into the filter media layer. The propagation of the acoustic waves into the filter media layer may facilitate the filter media layer to enhance the filtration efficiency of the air filter. The air filter may further comprise a pre-programmed chip to control the frequency of the acoustic waves generated. Further, air filter may comprise a battery adapted to supply power to the one or more acoustic wave generating means and the pre-programmed chip.
