Description

The invention relates to a laundry care device with a memory unit and at least one selectable work program stored in the memory unit with several parameters of the work program, as well as to a method of operating the laundry care device after selecting a work program with several work program parameters .

State of the art

The washing of soiled laundry in the washing machine occurs in accordance with a work program having a more or less constant sequence. At the same time, the work program includes several operations, and it is possible to achieve the greatest washing effect only thanks to the optimal combination of mechanical and chemical parameters within the given time scheme and within the temperature regime configured for a certain type of laundry. In this case, the parameters Time, Chemistry (i.e. the degree of chemical impact), Mechanics (i.e. the degree of mechanical impact) and Temperature to a certain extent mutually cancel each other, but not completely replacing each other.

Therefore, each work program includes predefined values for the parameters Time, Chemistry, Mechanics and Temperature. If, for example, a time frame is set for the laundry care process - for example, 1.5 hours at a temperature of 60 ° C for colored laundry - then in order to achieve a satisfactory washing result, the remaining parameters must correspond to them. So, for example, mechanical action can be established by regulating the movement of the drum. At different speeds, the laundry has a different mechanical effect. The concept of mechanical action can combine the number of revolutions during spinning and drying, as well as other installations, such as reverse mode, etc.

The parameter Chemistry, as a rule, includes, first of all, the amount of water as a predefined working parameter for the washing program. If an automatic dosing system is provided, then the Chemistry parameter naturally also includes the quantity, type, combination and sequence of supply of processing aids, such as a variety of detergents, washing aids, etc.

The parameters Time and Temperature are non-explanatory operating parameters that in most washing machines are predefined in most cases for certain operating programs (for example, a 60 ° C white / color program means a certain prescribed execution time).

Modern devices for the care of linen have many work programs in which the working parameters explained above are in optimal proportions with each other. In conventional laundry care devices, the user typically selects the type of laundry and temperature (e.g., 40 ° C, easy care). Work programs for sensitive laundry, for example, limit the parameter Mechanics as much as possible, since in this case too strong a mechanical effect on the laundry to be washed would entail too high a load on thin fabrics. In contrast, the parameters Time and Chemistry are manifested here more strongly. Erasable items are cleaned more slowly, over a longer period, in a special washing solution. Linens that do not have high requirements, for example, white linen that is boiled, are washed, on the contrary, at high temperatures up to 95 ° C, without being damaged.

Consumers would like, along with simplifying the maintenance of laundry care devices, to be able to manage the laundry care process individually and independently, while being rational from an environmental and economic point of view. So, already conventional devices for the care of linen to a limited extent can adapt work programs to the degree of contamination of the laundry. In almost all modern washing machines, the setting of the drum speed during the spin cycle can be adjusted within certain limits so that, on the one hand, when the speed decreases, the fabric is saved and less energy is spent on the washing process and, on the other hand, when the speed is increased achieve the best spin result. The same applies to the choice of washing temperature. Modern machines allow the user, in addition, to perform a pre-wash operation that is environmentally and economically rational or to select short automatic washing programs for less soiled laundry.

Under a work program is meant a program that is determined by setting the user operating parameters, and when setting pre-defined values of the operating parameters set for the selected work program are selected. Work programs also include routines that result from the user setting possible additional options for the selected work program, or work program steps that can be executed independently as part of the work program. Such stages of a work program can be, for example, a spin program, water pumping, or a soaking program.

For an even deeper regulation of the washing process, patent document EP 0898003 A2 represents a multifunctional service device for washing machines with an indicator display that allows you to display work programs in text form and select them. Moreover,

- 1 019663 users have the opportunity to choose one of the displayed work programs or a combination of work programs. In this regard, in addition, the method of operation of the washing machine is known, which has an input device capable of individually compiling a washing program by stepwise selecting individual settable values.

The disadvantage of the device for the care of linen according to patent document EP 0898003 A2, as well as the way it works, is that the task of the work programs is difficult, and the user, so that he can set the optimal combination of the relevant parameters, requires in-depth knowledge about the various available in his washing programs available.

Furthermore, laundry care devices are known which can display the expected duration of a given work program. The disadvantage is the need for the user to sort through various settings or combinations of work programs in order to find a work program that has the desired duration of work. He often cannot draw conclusions based on the installation parameters about the effect of his installation on the result of the selected program. For example, the user is not informed that a reduction in the washing program may result in deterioration in the quality of cleaning.

Further, laundry care devices are known in which, in combination with the work program, additional program options are selected, for example, fast, gentle mode or wet for ironing. In such laundry care devices, each work program and every possible combination of work programs are associated with certain constant values of the working parameters, with which we achieve the best possible care result for the selected program. This means that the user cannot deviate from this predetermined optimal achievable care result, for the sake of brevity, also called the end result, if, for example, possible additional energy saving is more important to him than a very good care result.

Disclosure of invention

The objective of the present invention is to improve mentioned at the beginning of the device for the care of linen, as well as mentioned at the beginning of the method of work in the sense that at least partially eliminates the disadvantages characteristic of the prior art.

According to the invention, the problem is solved by a laundry care device with the features of claim 1, which is equipped with a memory unit and at least one selectable work program or partial program (program step) stored in the memory unit with several parameters of the work program, each of which is stored in the memory of work programs and / or stages of the work program, specific values of work parameters (work program parameters) are mapped. In addition, the device for care of linen includes at least one installation element for setting the user at least one set value and a control unit for automatically changing at least one parameter of the work program in accordance with the value set by the user value. The laundry care device is characterized in that the set value is the final result achieved when the selected work program or stage of the work program is executed, and at least one working parameter of the selected work program or stage is automatically changed depending on the set, that is, the final result achieved. work program. The end result includes, along with the result of the care, the expenditure of resources necessary for the implementation of the care program, for example, the length of time for its implementation or the duration of the work program, water consumption, energy consumption or the consumption of cleaning products and care products.

Along with this, to solve the problem, a method for operating the laundry care device after selecting a work program with several parameters of the work program, having the features of the corresponding claim, is proposed. With this method, the specific values of the working parameters corresponding to the selected work program or stage of the work program are automatically adjusted and depending on the specified end result, which is achieved or should be achieved when the selected work program or stage of the work program is executed. Thus, the final result achieved is a preset value. If a work program or a work program step has several work program parameters with specific values corresponding to each of them, then according to the invention at least one of the specific work parameters automatically changes in accordance with a given end result.

Thus, the present invention provides such a laundry care device and a method for operating it that allows even an inexperienced user to intuitively and, therefore, in an uncomplicated manner, quickly, understandably and with a few steps, adapt the washing process to their individual needs.

The user can best appreciate how heavily soiled his laundry is and how intense the laundry should be, or after how long the laundry will need it again. In addition, the user most accurately knows his own views on the environmental aspects of washing clothes.

According to the invention, in a laundry care device generally known at the disposal of

- At least one setting element is provided to the user by means of which he can independently and individually set one or several set values for the selected work program, such as, for example, the washing time, i.e. the duration of the washing process, or energy consumption. In this case, preferably, one setting element is provided for setting the set values or their combinations. On the one hand, the set values can be directly related to the parameters of the work program mentioned above, for example, time (duration of the work program). On the other hand, the concept of a set value in the sense of the present invention also includes closer user-related characteristics, which, in turn, indirectly affect the parameters of the work program. These include, for example, the cleanliness of the laundry after washing, briefly called the cleaning result, the degree of intensity of the rinse, also called the rinse, the residual moisture of the laundry after the final spin cycle, water consumption or energy consumption. This means that the user, setting one of the achieved end results, can specify the type and / or intensity of processing. This list, of course, is incomplete and depends on the wishes of the user, which may vary. So, today, for example, the desire to save energy often comes to the fore. In this case, the user does not have to thoroughly choose from the proposed work programs and various subprograms that work program that most closely matches his expectations. He can simply select a work program from a small number of possible work programs and set the final result to be achieved for this work program. After that, on the basis of such a task or installation, the necessary specific values of the operating parameters are automatically selected.

The setting of these setpoints is reflected in at least one parameter of the work program, often also several or all. If the user selects a work program for the type of linen Thin underwear, then the work program must appropriately adapt, for example, the mechanical effect controlled by the movement of the drum. If the user wants to set a low energy consumption for the selected work program, then it may make sense to use less water and wash at a lower temperature, which in this case leads to an extension of the work program to achieve the same cleaning result, as with higher energy consumption. In addition, it is also possible that the values of the parameters of the work program that determine the mechanical effect will vary within predetermined limits, depending on the selected work program, in order to increase the contribution of the mechanical effect to increase the cleaning intensity to compensate for the increase in the time of the work program.

Therefore, the laundry care device or the corresponding method is preferably improved by the fact that when setting the end result for the selected work program or stage of the work program, which at the same time changes or worsens at least one of the other end results of the selected work program or stage work program, the specific value of the work parameter and / or at least one of the other specific values of the parameters of the work program is automatically set vayutsya those in which the other end result as possible as close to the end to that achieved with the original specific values corresponding to the selected operating program or phase of the work program. Changing the values of the operating parameters is preferably carried out within the prescribed limits, which depend on the selected work program or stage of the work program.

The setting element for the user to set the set value is made in such a way that it allows you to set several values of the set value within a predetermined area.

In a laundry care device according to the invention, a memory unit is provided in which, as in the known laundry care devices, work programs or individual parameters of work programs that can be selected by the user are stored. It is advisable that these programs are standard programs that the user is already used to, for example, those that are indicated by the type of linen and temperature (30 ° C white / color, 60 ° C white / color, 90 ° C white / boiling, etc. .d.). Unlike conventional washing machines, in which the user can select only these standard programs and, possibly, several separate additional parameters, such as quick washing (short washing duration) or light pollution (for lightly soiled laundry), a laundry care device according to the invention allows the user to set certain set values within a range. In addition to the work programs, partial work programs (program steps) can also be selected, for example pumping water, spinning or soaking. Partial work program refers to a program that can be executed independently and predominantly represents a certain part of the work program.

The user can preferably choose between several values within the range for one of the set values. This is especially useful for pre-selection cases.

- 3 019663 changes at which the user can choose the duration of the work program either smoothly or stepwise, for example, when setting the time with an interval of 15 minutes. Thus, he can choose the duration of the program, for example, between 45 minutes and 3 hours.

The setpoint may also or additionally relate to intensity. So, for example, it is possible to set the intensity scale on which the user can set a specific value. It is also possible to use other set values and their boundary values.

The control unit adjusts the work program in accordance with the set value of the setpoint or setpoints. The laundry care device according to the invention automatically adapts the parameters of the work program so that the wash program ultimately corresponds to the values set by the user. If the user, for example, sets a low energy consumption, then the remaining parameters of the work program are adjusted rationally within the selected work program in such a way as to ultimately achieve the lowest possible energy consumption. So, for this purpose, for example, the temperature of the washing solution and the number of revolutions during the spin cycle can be reduced, so that instead the laundry is prolonged accordingly, that is, the length of time the laundry is in the washing solution. In the case of heavily soiled laundry, which should relatively quickly become available again, the user, on the contrary, will increase the value of the set value, the intensity of the washing process and at the same time shorten the set value, the duration. Then, in accordance with this, for example, the washing temperature, the number of revolutions, the amount of detergent solution and, if there is an automatic dispensing device, the amount of detergent are automatically adjusted.

As a control unit for automatically changing at least one of the parameters of the work program in accordance with the value of the set value (set values), the microcontroller standardly used in laundry care devices with the corresponding working software recorded in it can be used. For this, a fuzzy logic system (Bi / hu-Boschs) can be used, for example.

If the work program has a certain sequence of program steps and a certain duration of the program, then an additional computing unit is preferably provided in the laundry care device for calculating changes in at least one parameter of the work program depending on the set value of the set value. With its help, the dependence of the individual parameters of the work program on each other is calculated or the effect of their changes on the course of the work program is calculated.

With the appropriate output or indication device, the corresponding change can be displayed to the user. Thus, the user is given the opportunity to further customize the washing process in accordance with his needs or ideas.

Preferably, a display is provided for displaying a work program and / or changing operating parameters.

In addition, a memory block is preferably provided for storing the parameters of the work programs in the form of packets, with at least one packet corresponding to each of the values of the set value. This memory block can either be the above-mentioned memory block for storing standard programs, or an additional memory block provided.

Various options for setpoints are offered in a form that does not need explanation and is user-oriented. So, the boundary values of the set values can correspond to understandable notation, for example:

fast - intensively fast - eco

In the fast-intensive variant, both boundary values quickly and intensively represent a combination of the set values, the duration of the work program and the cleaning intensity. Thus, in both boundary regions, the user is offered options that are advantageous to him. Moreover, according to the invention in this embodiment, when the installation is changed in the direction from fast to intensively, the parameters of the work program change in the direction of a stronger mechanical stress and, possibly, also greater energy consumption.

In the case of the quick-eco option, when installed in the eco-direction, an extended duration of the work program can be provided in order to wash with energy saving while reducing mechanical stress during washing. At the same time, the intentionally ambiguous concept of eco can be understood as a reduction, which means a washing process that has been optimized both ecologically and economically.

This means that, in combination with each other, a first boundary value for the first setpoint and a different boundary value for another setpoint is offered, and when the first setpoint changes in the direction from the first boundary value to another boundary value, another setpoint is set in the direction another boundary value.

- 4 019663

In order to avoid damage to items of linen due to improper processing during the washing process, when choosing a specific work program, the general boundary conditions are determined and set. Thus, for example, washing of sensitive laundry, such as woolen products, is prevented at too high rotational speeds or at inappropriate temperatures. As a result of this, the user-made adjustment of the set values occurs within the limits set by the selected work program. To select a specific work program, the program selector switch is preferably provided in the laundry care device. As a program selection switch, it is possible, for example, to use a control knob, a keyboard or a rotary wheel.

In order to draw up the control zone of the laundry care device as clearly as possible taking into account the conditions set by the product design, it is therefore advisable to integrate the installation element for regulating (installing) the user of the set value (s) in the program selection switch.

The installation element is preferably continuously or stepwise adjustable. In this case, the installation element, in particular, is in the form of a rotary knob, a slide knob or switch, a touch switch or knob or rocker switch. Touch switches or knobs are also called sliders, since the user can smoothly set the appropriate set value with a simple movement of the hand or finger on the surface of the switch.

The choice of the appropriate installation element is determined both by the technical requirements for the installation element, and its characteristics from the point of view of design. In addition, by selecting a specific, for example large, well-readable and / or easy-to-maintain installation element, ease of use of the apparatus thus equipped is ensured. In addition, the choice of a user-friendly installation element that is particularly convenient for the user emphasizes that due to the possibility of the user setting the set value, a simple, automatic and especially well-oriented result function of the device according to the invention for laundry care has been created.

With smooth regulation, it is possible that the parameter changes between the opposite boundary values in steps, with a more or less high number of steps. Adjustment can be carried out, for example, in the range from 5 to 20 steps, however, both a smaller and a larger number of steps can be provided, for example from 3 to 5, from 4 to 8, from 10 to 25, etc.

The laundry care device preferably has a display for displaying the work program and / or changing the sequence of program steps or the duration of the program depending on the change in the set values. So the user can be shown the dependence of the parameters of the work program on each other, so that he can better evaluate how the setting of the set value is reflected in the change in the parameter. Additionally, by means of a display, preferably one-line or multi-line, an indication of the time can be carried out, which during the operation of the device can indicate the time remaining until the end of the program. Thus, the user is given the opportunity to more carefully choose which of the operating options (for example, a shorter washing time, special environmental friendliness of the process, more intensive or less intensive cleaning, etc.) is of primary importance for him in this case, and at the same time It directly indicates the effect of setting / changing the value of the set value. In addition, alternatives may be shown to the user through a display. However, there is the possibility of indicating to him the indirect consequences of a particular installation (for example, increased energy consumption).

To display to the user the current position of the installation element, the latter preferably has an indicator device for indicating a change in position of the installation element. Moreover, such an indicator device is preferably integrated into the installation element or attached to the installation element. In this case, the indicator device can be performed both optical and acoustic. The possibility of optical design provides for the implementation of the indicator in the form of individual light elements (for example, located in a row of LEDs) that light up sequentially when the position of the installation element changes, or in the form of a series of light elements located above or below the installation element. In addition, it is possible to perform the installation element in the form of a slide sensor with backlight. In this case, the indicator device can also change its color, for example, switching from red through orange to green in order to give the user further information about the change in the work program, depending on the set value set by it.

A preferred embodiment of the method according to the invention is that user-set values of set values, as well as parameters of the work program that are automatically changed depending on these values, are combined into packages. Thanks to this, the maintenance of the laundry care device is further simplified, and the number of possible variations is reasonably limited.

- 5 019663

The user preferably sets the set value of the chemical, thermal, mechanical, temporary or other effects. Moreover, a particularly favorable position is created if the user sets the set value and automatically changes at least one of the other parameters of the work program in steps or smoothly. In this case, an even finer stepwise change in the setting of the set value or each of the set values becomes possible, and this avoids the user having the so-called feeling of loss of control. In this case, the user sets the preset value preferably by means of the installation element, performed in the above manner.

Brief Description of the Drawings

Embodiments of the invention are explained below based on the drawings. The drawings show a typology of the installation elements of the laundry care devices, and in no case should they be understood as images of real objects on a scale. The individual drawings show:

FIG. 1 shows an embodiment of a mounting element with a corresponding indicator device, and FIG. 2 is an embodiment of a mounting element with an integrated indicator device.

The implementation of the invention

In FIG. 1 shows a mounting element 10 mounted in a laundry care device. The setting element 10 is used to set the user at least one set value, in addition to the selected work program, and automatically changes at least one parameter of the work program depending on the set value of the set value. The mounting member 10 in the embodiment of FIG. 1 is made in the form of a rocker switch 11. At its outer ends 12a, 12b, the oppositely directed arrow pointers 13 show the direction of change of the set value to one of two possible modes of operation (intensively, quickly) of the laundry care device. In the embodiment of FIG. 1, the user is given the opportunity to execute the selected work program either quickly, i.e. with a particularly short washing duration, or intensively, i.e. with the most powerful cleansing effect. At the same time, the parameters of the work program are already combined in packages and affect the change in the work program depending on the change in position of the installation element 10. As other combinations, for example, the values are eco and fast. In order to explain to the user a change in the position of the installation element 10, an indicator device 15 is connected to the installation element 10. The indicator device 15 is formed by row-mounted light elements 16, which, when illuminated, visually indicate the selected position of the installation element 10. Under the light elements 16 in the embodiment FIG. 1 means several LEDs that light up in turn. In the embodiment of FIG. 1 user made a change in the work program in the direction of a more intensive washing process, which is required, for example, with a heavier soiling of the laundry. As a result of this, however, the washing time is increased, however, the laundry is cleaned more thoroughly.

Light elements 16, changing their color, provide the user in the form of feedback with additional information on changing the work program. In the same sense, it is also possible for the user to indicate a favorable or rather unfavorable change in the work program by changing the color, for example, from green to red. In addition, an acoustic indicator (not shown) may be connected to the optical indicator device 15, for example, reflecting a change in the position of the setting element 10 by changing the pitch or indicating a stop or operation error. In addition, it is possible to supply a speech sound signal about the set preset value (s).

In FIG. 2 shows a mounting element 10, which has a touch sensitive controller 17, a so-called. slider sensor. At the outer ends 12a, 12b of the controller 17, the oppositely directed direction arrows 13 show the direction of change of the set value to one of both possible modes of operation of the laundry care device. In the mounting member of the embodiment shown in FIG. 2, the set values are already combined in packages and give the user the opportunity to stepwise change the duration or intensity of washing for the selected work program. The setting of the set value occurs when the user moves the finger or the whole hand on the regulation surface 18. The controller in the embodiment of FIG. 2, highlighted. Depending on how far the user moves his finger or his hand along the surface of the controller 18, the corresponding setpoints vary. The change is illustrated by the lighting of the light element 16, built into the installation element 10 and showing how much the work program is changed in the direction of fast or accordingly intensive mode 14 of operation.

In addition to that shown in FIG. 2, a one-line display 20 is attached to the setting element 10, by which an indication is given to the user in the form of a time parameter 21 indicating a change in the duration of the program depending on the setting of the set value

- 6 019663 or package of parameters respectively. Thus, the user has the opportunity to directly influence the value of the time parameter 21 by setting the set values. During the actual washing process, the time remaining until the end of the washing is shown on the display 20. It is possible, in addition, also to display on the indicator the remaining time, total time or already elapsed washing time, optionally, while the user is able to accordingly vary the readings of the display 20.
