  • Publication number: 20220196253
    Abstract: A hot water supply device including an inlet pipe, an outlet pipe, a burner unit, a heat exchanger, an exhaust aperture, a first temperature sensor detecting a measured exhaust temperature of the exhaust gas, a second temperature sensor detecting a water temperature of water entering the inlet pipe, and a processor. The processor is configured to obtain an error between the measured exhaust temperature and an estimated exhaust temperature, and detects that scale clogging has occurred inside the heat exchange tubing based on an index which is generated using the error between the measured exhaust temperature and the estimated exhaust temperature. The estimated exhaust temperature is a first predetermined value that is determined using a numerical equation which has at least the water temperature of water entering the inlet pipe and a scale number of the hot water supply device as variables of the numerical equation.

  • Patent number: 4792650
    Abstract: A module mounting system for an electronic device capable of mounting a pair of electronic components each including a locking groove. The mounting system includes an operation switch having an engaging member to be engaged with the locking groove in each of the electronic components mounted on the electronic device. The operation switch provides a locking position to make the engaging member fit in the locking grooves simultaneously and a plurality of unlocking positions for unlocking one of the components selectively. The operation switch shuts off power supply to the electronic device when set at any of the unlocking positions, or supplies power to the electronic device when set at the locking position.
