  • Patent number: 11894499
    Abstract: Solid-state lighting devices including light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and lens arrangements for packaged LED devices are disclosed. An LED package may include one or more LED chips on a submount with a lens positioned on the submount to form a cavity. The one or more LED chips may reside in the cavity without direct encapsulation materials that would otherwise contact the one or more LED chips and any corresponding wirebonds. In this manner, the one or more LED chips may be driven with higher drive currents while reducing degradation and mechanical strain effects related to differences in coefficients of thermal expansion with typical encapsulant materials. LED packages may also be configured with one or more apertures that allow air flow between an interior volume of a cavity and an ambient environment outside the LED package to promote heat dissipation at higher drive currents.

  • Patent number: 11879674
    Abstract: The current invention provides an evaporative condensing system using an evaporative condenser heat exchanger having an outer surface. The heat exchanger has a superhydrophilic surface. A compressor is configured to circulate a working fluid through the heat exchanger. A water distribution system is adapted to deposit a controlled amount of water on the heat exchanger to absorb heat from the heat exchanger by evaporation of water from the heat exchanger. A collector is located below the heat exchanger to receive excess water from the heat exchanger and direct excess water to a drain and an air delivery system is provided to direct air over the heat exchanger. The water distribution system supplies water to the heat exchanger in sufficient quantity that the water wets the heat exchanger, keeps the heat exchanger wet along its length, and excess water remains to carry dissolved solids to the collector.

    Abstract: A cooling assembly includes an evaporator containing a primary cooling medium, a passive condenser, and a heat exchanger. When a secondary cooling medium is provided to the heat exchanger, the primary cooling medium in the gas phase switches from being received by the passive condenser to the heat exchanger without operating any valves located between the evaporator and the passive condenser and between the evaporator and the heat exchanger. The primary cooling medium circulates between the evaporator and the passive condenser and between the evaporator and the heat exchanger by natural circulation and gravity without a pump in the flow path of the primary cooling medium between the heat exchanger and the evaporator and between the passive condenser and the evaporator to circulate the primary cooling medium.

  • Patent number: 11836023
    Abstract: An information handling system uses one connector for both liquid and air cooling and detects the type of cooling system installed. That provides the ability to choose the correct thermal handling table based on the installed cooling system. To detect the type of cooling system installed, a thermal management controller sets a control signal supplied to the cooling system through the connector to a first control value and determines if a tachometer signal supplied by the cooling system to the thermal management controller through the connector indicates a first type of cooling system. If the first type of cooling system is not detected, the thermal management controller checks if the tachometer signal from the cooling system with the control signal set at the first control value, or alternatively at a second control value, indicates a second type of cooling system. If no cooling system is detected, an error condition exists.

  • Patent number: 10917993
    Abstract: A fan gantry includes a frame structure, a supporting structure, a cover body and a thumb screw. The frame structure includes two side walls and a first connecting plate. The side walls define some spaces therebetween. Each side wall has an opening. The openings stagger with the spaces. The first connecting plate is disposed on one side wall. The supporting structure includes two structural plates opposite to each other and connected between the side walls. The structural plates define a channel aligning with the openings and allowing some electric cables to penetrate through. The cover body connects with the frame structure to cover the channel. The thumb screw is disposed on a second connecting plate of the cover body. When the cover body covers the channel, the second connecting plate abuts against the first connecting plate, and the thumb screw locks to the first connecting plate.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for portable air conditioners are shown. In accordance with one aspect of the present invention, a description of a design is provided for a portable air conditioning unit that uses a standard 5-gallon bucket and 20 pounds of ice. In some embodiments, a 24VDC lithium ion battery pack powers a backwards curved impeller, which draws air into an intake plenum and down through draft tubes, up thru an impeller, which slings the air radially thru exhaust duct(s) and out onto the user(s). A single push button may be utilized to turn the fan on and off and select a fan speed. In some embodiments, a neoprene insulating sleeve may be applied to the outside of the 5-gallon bucket or may line the inside of the bucket. In some embodiments, up to 7 vent wedges may be installed to duct the cool air in selectable directions. In some embodiments, the vent wedges may be removed allowing the top to seat down lower increasing the velocity of the cool air exiting radially.
