  • Publication number: 20200292237
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a heat exchanger and an air conditioner improving heat exchange ability by optimizing the number of high protrusions of a heat transfer tube and a height difference between the high protrusion and a low protrusion to increase the heat transfer performance of the heat transfer tube or reduce the pressure loss in the tube. An air conditioner includes the heat exchanger including a heat transfer tube configured to allow the refrigerant to flow, fins installed on the heat transfer tube, and fin collars forming an insertion hole through which the heat transfer tube is inserted and passes, and the fin collars is in contact with the heat transfer tube by tube expansion of the heat transfer tube.

  • Publication number: 20150198734
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for detecting the location of a buried pipe are disclosed. The apparatus includes an inductive source setting unit, an induced voltage measurement unit, a proportional graph generation unit, and a location determination unit. The inductive source setting unit sets an inductive source in a predetermined area which a location of a buried pipe is detected. The induced voltage measurement unit measures the induced voltages of conductive wires for measuring the induced voltages in the predetermined area based on the inductive source. The proportional graph generation unit generates a proportional graph using the measured induced voltages. The location determination unit detects the location of the buried pipe using the proportional graph.

  • Patent number: 7859266
    Abstract: A method of accurately measuring earth resistance even when the composition state of soil that affects the installation of a metering device for measuring earth resistance is unknown. The method comprises measuring a potential at a first potential electrode point, measuring a potential at a second potential electrode point, calculating a voltage slope corresponding to a change rate of potential difference, using a potential difference between the first and second potential electrode points, and setting a potential point according to voltage slope characteristics and measuring earth resistance. A measurement approximating an accurate value of earth resistance can be performed even when soil composition characteristics are unknown at a site.

  • Patent number: 5579122
    Abstract: An apparatus for accurately extracting a selected channel of composite video signal from a time division multiplexed video signal. When a time division multiplexed video signal is reproduced from a video tape, noise may be induced due to tracking errors. To prevent noise from causing errors in demultiplexing of a given channel of composite video information from the time multiplexed video signal, a data detector (10) are provided to detect plural channel identification codes embedded in the vertical blanking period of the composite video signals. The plural detected channel identification codes are compared by comparators (60, 62) to determine if they match the channel identification code corresponding to a selected video channel. The results of the comparisons are subject to a logical OR operation (64) to determine when a composite video signal from a selected channel is to be appropriately extracted to be processed through a video signal processor (70) and for display on a monitor.
