  • Patent number: 10302323
    Abstract: Monitoring airflows through fan arrays and adjusting fan speeds during air handling system operations to dynamically provide and/or maintain balanced discharge airflows. An air handling system controller utilizes fan speed and airflow data values of each fan array to determine whether a fan speed setpoint of the fans of a fan array should be increased or decreased in order to balance the airflow through each fan array. When an increase or decrease in the fan speed setpoint is required, the controller adjusts the fan speeds accordingly.

  • Patent number: 9881478
    Abstract: A diagnostic monitoring system and method is employed for one or more vapor compression systems such as air conditioners and heat pumps having a compressor, an indoor air handler fan coil and an outdoor condensor. Temperature, voltage and current sensors are provided at the outdoor condensor to determine that at least one vapor compression system is operating properly. Data obtained from the sensors is wirelessly transmitted to a receiving-device for use by the systems' custodian or repair service provider and includes information concerning an occurrence of periods when one or more of the vapor compression systems are operating at an abnormal state.

  • Patent number: 9526386
    Abstract: A vacuum cleaner of protection class II is provided with a connection for a suction hose; a drive motor; at least one electrically non-conductive part; a feed line configured to feed static voltage; and a capacitor device provided with a capacitor group with at least one capacitor. For discharging static voltage, the electrically non-conductive part is electrically conductively connected via at least one contact element to the capacitor device. The feed line is connected to the at least one capacitor. The at least one capacitor outputs the voltage to an electrical power network when a certain charge quantity is exceeded. The at least one contact element can be the motor shaft of the drive motor.

  • Patent number: 9417005
    Abstract: A method and device for improving moisture removal capacity of a vapor compression system is disclosed. The vapor compression system is started up with the evaporator blower initially set to a high speed. A relative humidity in a return air stream is measured with the evaporator blower operating at the high speed. If the measured humidity is above the predetermined high relative humidity value, the evaporator blower speed is reduced from the initially set high speed to the lowest possible speed. The device is a control board connected with the blower and uses a predetermined change in measured relative humidity to control the blower motor speed.

  • Patent number: 9408512
    Abstract: A separator for a vacuum cleaner has a cover part from which webs are projecting which are positioned along the circumference of the cover part at a spacing one behind the other with formation of through openings. At least some of the webs are without connection with each other at the end that is facing away from the cover part. The webs are elastically yielding transversely to the longitudinal direction. The webs are positioned in their mounting position with radial pretension on a spider which is fixedly seated on the motor shaft of the vacuum cleaner. Due to centrifugal forces occurring in operation of the vacuum cleaner as a result of the high rotary speed of the motor shaft, the webs of the separator are positioned with their free ends under high force on the spider. The separator is thus reliably entrained by the spider by friction.

  • Patent number: 9207001
    Abstract: A device and method are provided to improve performance of a vapor compression system using a retrofittable control board to start up the vapor compression system with the evaporator blower initially set to a high speed. A baseline evaporator operating temperature with the evaporator blower operating at the high speed is recorded, and then the device detects if a predetermined acceptable change in evaporator temperature has occurred. The evaporator blower speed is reduced from the initially set high speed as long as there is only a negligible change in the measured evaporator temperature and therefore a negligible difference in the compressor's power consumption so as to obtain a net increase in the Coefficient of Performance.
