The control method of the washing machine includes measuring a first time between position detection time points of the balancing modules during rotation of the rotary tub when the plurality of balancing modules is in a static mode, measuring a second time between position detection time points of the balancing modules during rotation of the rotary tub when any one of the balancing modules is shifted by a predetermined distance through a movement command, and confirming a relationship between a module id of any one of the balancing modules and a communication id of the movement command through a relative variation of the second time with respect to the first time..
|Centralized dc power supply control system and method of economically controlling power consumption|
An economical centralized dc power consumption control system is used to separate electric power into an ac circuit for high-power-consumption electric appliances such as tv set, refrigerator, washing machine, and air conditioner and a dc circuit for low-power-consumption electric appliances such as lamp, electric fan, notebook computer, tablet computer, mobile phone, and digital camera. The dc circuit is equipped with multiple high-powered power supplies, each of which transforms commercial power to dc power, provides electricity to various low-power-consumption electric appliances, and directly links the electric appliances for supply of electric energy without individual rectifiers/transformers..
|Device for locking the porthole door of washing and drying machines|
An electromagnetic door locking device for a washing machine and similar, adapted to lock a sliding cursor (30) cooperating with the end of a hook mounted on the machine porthole door through a blocking pawl (12). The device comprises two preloaded parallel and mechanically separate metal strips (16, 17), accomplishing the closing and the opening of the power circuit and of the open/closed door circuit, respectively, and that are maintained in the open position by said pawl (12) and by an actuator (13) operated by said cursor (30), when said door is open.
|Washing machine with a direct drive system|
A washing machine with a direct drive system including a tub, a drum rotatably mounted inside the tub, a shaft connected to the drum at a first end for transmission of a driving force of a direct drive motor, a coaxial support connected to a rear portion of the tub and having a first seat for a first bearing supporting a second end of the shaft opposite the drum, a stator secured to the coaxial support and having a plurality of magnetic cores, a rotor including permanent magnets and connected to the shaft, and a second bearing for supporting the shaft between the second end and the first end. The tub is made of polymeric material in which a second seat for said second bearing is co-molded..
