  • Publication number: 20060260794
    Abstract: The invention relates to an air conditioning installation for a passenger cell of a vehicle, said passenger cell having a rear area, with at least one air duct which leads to the rear area and is capable of being acted upon by air of preselectable temperature, and with at least one air outflow device connected to the air duct and arranged in the rear area. To simplify the rear area air conditioning in structural terms, with the aim of lowering the manufacturing costs, while maintaining air conditioning comfort in the rear area, the air duct has leading off from it a duct branch which is closed off by means of a second air outflow device arranged in the rear area, and at the branch point is arranged an air distribution member which allocates the air volume stream flowing in the air duct to the two air outflow devices.

  • Patent number: 6735966
    Abstract: A method for automatically controlling an air conditioning device includes determining vehicle interior and exterior temperatures, and supplying a mixture of fresh air and circulating air to the air conditioning device in a hot start when the interior temperature exceeds the exterior temperature. An air conditioning device for a motor vehicle includes a hot start mode and a normal mode. In the hot start mode when the vehicle interior temperature exceeds the vehicle exterior temperature, a mixture of fresh air and circulating air is supplied to the air conditioning device. The air conditioning device operates in the normal mode when the vehicle exterior temperature exceeds the vehicle interior temperature.

  • Patent number: 6019288
    Abstract: A heating or air conditioning unit for the interior of vehicles with air outlets, which are disposed in the center plane of the interior of the vehicle, particularly in the dashboard and which include at least one centrally disposed center vent and two side vents, and with a control unit with adjusting elements for influencing the air emerging from the air outlets is provided. For the purpose of adjusting the division of air between the at least one center vent and the two side vents in the driver's side and the front seat passenger's side of the interior of the vehicle from the driver's seat, two air ducts, each leading to one of the side vents, branch off from the air duct leading to the at least one center vent and, at each branching site, an air splitter is disposed, which is controlled from an air distribution adjusting element, which is disposed in a control panel of the control unit, which is usually placed centrally in the dashboard in the interior of the vehicle.
