Abstract

The invention relates to a machine for treating laundry, especially a washing machine and/or drier, comprising means (10, 14) for detecting the type of laundry items and for mechanically producing a suggestion for a laundry treatment programme.

Description

Laundry appliance

The invention relates to a laundry treating machine with an electronic control device for the automatic performance of laundry treatment programs.

A laundry appliance may be in particular a washing machine, a clothes drying machine, a combined washing and drying machine. Such machines are generally known.

Further, it is well known that laundry articles are, depending on the material from which they are made more or less mechanically strong and only up to a certain temperature, heated or may not be treated with certain chemical substances. Furthermore, it is known that laundry items should be treated differently depending on their level of pollution or the nature of their pollution. On one hand, the clothes should be handled as gently as possible, on the other hand their pollution should be completely removed. Another important parameter is the required for treating laundry energy. The energy demand should be as small as possible. Another criterion is the amount of time which should be as short as possible to treat the laundry. The known washing machines contain a variety of washing programs and other laundry band averaging programs, such as drying programs, under which an operator can select the program that is according to their own judgment for the laundry to be treated most appropriate. For this, the operator requires a lot of knowledge and experience to assess to what a material it is ken on being treated Wäschestük- and what kind of pollution of the laundry is. When a laundry article does not have a label which has its material and the nature of the allowable wash treatment, it is for an operator is often not possible to identify the material type of the laundry article and the allowable ren Behandlungsverfah- or determine washing methods. Even with stains in laundry, an operator can not see often about which of contamination is.

Earlier, when there were no washing machines and dryers, and not so many different types of materials and detergents for laundry types, the operating person had a direct relation to the laundry. The person was able to "test" the laundry. Also, they knew that garment was mechanically loaded more or less, such as when wringing out the laundry after the laundry process. Wringing the laundry today as the spin cycle in a washing machine or a dryer. Today, the operator is separated by the washing of the laundry.

You can only set a particular program. According to this program set the entire Wäschebhandlung done either completely right or completely wrong or partially correct.

Through the invention, the problem to be solved is to provide a way through which garments friendly, energy-saving and can be treated in an optimized time without the operator needs to have a special knowledge of the type of laundry. In accordance with the invention is an identification and communication way between the created pieces of laundry to be treated the operator manure person, the laundry treating machine and by means of which the operator is in making decisions concerning supports a good washing treatment of the laundry treating machine.

This object is achieved according to the invention in that a decision means is provided for automatic identification of the type of laundry items and for automatic decision-making about Wäschebehandlungs- with which program the identified items of laundry are treated, that information

Output means are provided by which the machine detected by the decision means laundry treatment program of a person is presentable as a proposal, and that are provided by a person operable input means for confirming the laundry treatment program mechanically determined. Further features of the invention are contained in the subclaims. By "nature of the laundry articles" can be understood not only the type of material, type of fiber and the type of color of the treated garments, but also the nature and the degree of contamination thereof in the invention, depending on how the control device of the laundry treatment machine designed is. The control device or the decision-making means of the laundry treating machine may have stored, for example, the following parameters in the context of the invention, which she or it taken into account in determining a Wächebehandlungspro- grammes: Fabric kinds of pieces of laundry, dirt types of Wäschestük- ke allowable temperatures of the laundry items, duration of treatment, quantity and type of treatment of water, detergent, dish soap, etc.

The decision-making agent is combined with the electronic control device. It may be arranged from this separately or partially or completely formed by the electronic control unit or integrated therein. The decision means identifies the type of laundry and calculated for the identified items of laundry optimal laundry treatment program (washing program and

/ Or drying program and / or other laundry treatment processes).

This wash will also be treated with a specially optimized program if the operator has no details about the Knowledge of fabric and / or of contamination of laundry. The operator needs only to present and then enter into the laundry treatment machine and then close the laundry treatment space of the machine by adding all of your laundry and to give it a start command the clothes of a detection device or a measuring head of the decision-making agent. Preferably, the control device is designed such that a laundry treatment program can only be started when, for example, in a washing machine laundry treatment space is closed, the door of the wash drum.

There is a communication system is provided, by which the decision making means may communicate with a person. Depending on the embodiment, the information output of the decision means may be optically and / or acoustically, for example in the form of a voice output. The messages of a person can be input to the communication system depending on its embodiment, manually and / or by spoken language.

According to a preferred embodiment, the decision means not only a "YES" - or "NEINT decision possible by confirming or deleting a proposed from the machine laundry treatment program, but it's also provided an opportunity to change the laundry treatment program proposed by the decision means by one person and to start in amended form.

The decision means may be configured such that it can be one of Wä- suggest schebehandlungsprogramme stored in the electronic control device or may generate a customized laundry treatment program, depending on the nature of the identified items of laundry. Such individually generated laundering program may consist of parts of the stored laundry treatment programs. A further embodiment of the invention provides that the decision means forms clusters on the number of times identified items of laundry are present which correspond to predetermined parameters. These parameters are stored in the control device or in the decision-making means and for example, are types of materials or types of fiber and / or types of debris that may be in laundry pre hands. The decision means checks for each identified

Piece of laundry, which are the parameters also present in the laundry article.

The decision means calculates the appropriate for the identified items of laundry laundry treatment program based on the cluster.

The decision-making means is preferably formed so that it computes from the clusters in accordance with fuzzy logic, the decision as to which laundry treatment program, the identified items of laundry are treated.

The decision-making means preferably includes a spectrometer to identify the type of the laundry items.

In order to identify the items of laundry can be placed manually in succession a measuring head or sensor of the decision-making agent. The measuring head may be fixedly arranged on the washing treatment machine or a handheld device. The measuring head can hold depending on the technical implementation by either contact or non-contact of the respective item of laundry information about the type of the laundry item, for example, its type of fiber, and the manner of its contamination. The measuring head can device via a cable or wireless connection to the electronic control or the decision means can be connected.

Preferably, the decision means to a display device for optical display of the type of the identified laundry article. This makes it possible to "learn" the nature of the substance or the fibers of the laundry article identified an operator. According to a further embodiment of the invention, the display device is designed such that it provides isolated per type for each type of laundry, the number of these garments.

This has several advantages. Pieces of laundry can be washed with a different maximum temperature or dried, depending on their type of fabric. The mechanical strength of the laundry items is also dependent on their type of fabric, so that depending on the type of fabric

Laundry item, for example, higher or lower speeds or frequent changes in direction or rotation breaks a laundry treatment drum are permissible, for example, a washing drum or a spin dryer or a tumble dryer. In the simultaneous treatment of several laundry articles, the temperature and the mechanical treatment of the laundry articles depends on the

Piece of laundry, which can withstand the lowest temperature, and which can withstand the lowest mechanical stress. Taking into account these parameters, the time duration may be extended a suitable wash program or shorten. By an optical or acoustic or written or other communication about the type of laundry and the number of pieces of laundry per type of the laundry treatment machine to the operator, the operator has the option to one or more identified items of laundry retake and a new laundry treatment program by the controller or to let suggest the decision means. Preferably also other parameters such as chemical beispeilsweise laundry treatment agents, fabric softeners, spin speed etc. can be influenced by an operator. According to a particular embodiment of the invention, the decision means comprises a reversible sensor or switchable measuring head or an additional sensor or additional measuring head with respective evaluation device which from the identified laundry those garments again subtracted, which are presented to him by the operator again. This an operator no longer needs to be re-identify all laundry items when they take away from the identified items of washing one or more pieces of laundry to be calculated a new laundry treatment program by the decision means. Suitable is also a measuring head or sensor, which the items of laundry of the decision-making added depending on the direction of movement of the laundry article with respect thereto or subtracted therefrom.
