  • Publication number: 20200018321
    Abstract: A propeller fan includes: a rotation-axis part that serves as a center of rotation; and a plurality of blades provided on an outer circumferential side of the rotation-axis part, the plurality of blades being joined to adjoining blades at leading edges and trailing edges thereof. A first rib projecting towards the center of rotation of the rotation-axis part to surround the rotation-axis part, and second ribs projecting towards the center of rotation to extend from the rotation-axis part toward the first rib are provided on pressure surfaces of the plurality of blades. Among ends of the second ribs in the direction of the center of rotation, the ends distant from the pressure surfaces project away from the pressure surfaces farther than an end of the first rib distant from the pressure surfaces, among the ends of the first rib in the direction of the center of rotation.

  • Publication number: 20200018530
    Abstract: An air conditioner includes a refrigerant circuit and refrigerant. The refrigerant circuit has a compressor, a condenser, a pressure-regulating valve, and an evaporator. The refrigerant is R32. The pressure-regulating valve includes a flow path causing the refrigerant flowing from the condenser to flow to the evaporator, a pressure reference chamber partitioned from the flow path and filled with inert gas, and a valve portion. The pressure-regulating valve is configured to adjust a degree of opening of the valve portion to adjust a flow rate of the refrigerant flowing through the flow path. The valve portion is configured to increase the degree of opening when a pressure in the flow path is higher than a pressure in the pressure reference chamber, and reduce the degree of opening when the pressure in the flow path is lower than the pressure in the pressure reference chamber.

  • Publication number: 20190303099
    Abstract: A sound collection apparatus and a sound collection method for accurately collecting a target sound are provided. A sound collection apparatus (1) collects an acoustic signal, and comprises: a first sensor (240) detecting a distance from the sound collection apparatus to an object around the sound collection apparatus to generate distant information indicative of the distance; a second sensor (230) detecting a motion of the sound collection apparatus to generate motion information indicative of the motion; a sound acquisition part (250) receiving a sound around the sound collection apparatus to generate an acoustic signal; and a controller (110) controlling collection of the acoustic signal; wherein the controller validates or invalidates the distance information based on the motion information and determines whether to collect the acoustic signal based on the distance information when the distance information is validated.

  • Publication number: 20190154276
    Abstract: An indoor unit for an air-conditioning apparatus includes a casing, an up-down airflow direction plate rotatably supported in the air outlet, and an auxiliary airflow direction plate rotatably supported below, and on an upstream side of, the up-down airflow direction plate. The up-down airflow direction plate has a main blade part formed of a flat plate and a rear edge part formed of a flat plate. When the main blade part is in a horizontal state, the rear edge part is inclined upward to a back face of the casing from the main blade part. When an angle ? formed between the main blade part and the rear edge part and an angle ? formed between the main blade part and a virtual line through a center of a tip part of the auxiliary airflow direction plate, ? is greater than ?.

  • Publication number: 20180347875
    Abstract: An air conditioner includes a compressor, a condenser, an expansion valve, an evaporator, and a temperature detection unit. The temperature detection unit is attached to the condenser and is configured to detect a temperature of the refrigerant in the condenser. The expansion valve is configured to be capable of adjusting a flow rate per unit time of the refrigerant flowing through the expansion valve by adjusting a degree of opening of the expansion valve. The degree of opening of the expansion valve is increased when the temperature of the refrigerant detected by the temperature detection unit rises, and the degree of opening of the expansion valve is decreased when the temperature of the refrigerant detected by the temperature detection unit falls.
