    DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
  • An embodiment according to the present invention will be described hereunder with reference to the accompanying drawings.
  • Figs. 1 and 2 sow a built-in type air conditioner (hereinafter referred to as "air conditioner") according to an embodiment of the present invention.
  • The air conditioner 1 has a box-shaped unit body 5 formed of a steel sheet which is suspended through bolts in a ceiling space 3 of a building.
  • As shown in Fig. 3, the unit body 5 has four side plates 11 which are disposed in a rectangular frame shape so as to face one another, a top plate 13 is fixed to the upper edge portions of the respective side plates 11 and a bottom plate 15 is fixed to the lower edge portions of the respective side plates 11. A heat insulating material is attached to parts of the side plates 11, the top plate 13 and the bottom plate 15. Suspending fittings 17 are fixed to both the ends of each of the side plates 11A, 11B at the short side, and the suspending fittings 17 are fixed to suspending bolts (not shown) hung from the ceiling of the building, whereby the unit body 5 is suspended from the ceiling.
  • The inside of the unit body 5 is divided into a machine chamber 9 at the left side of Fig. 1 and a heat exchange chamber 10 at the right side of Fig. 1 by a partition plate 7. In the heat exchange chamber 10 at the right side are disposed an indoor heat exchanger 21, a drain pan 23 which is located below the indoor heat exchanger 21 to receive drain water dropped form the indoor heat exchanger 21, and a drain pump 25 for discharging the drain water stocked in the drain pan 23 to the outside. As shown in Fig. 2, in the machine chamber 9 at the left side are disposed an air blowing fan driving motor 27, and air blowing fans 29A, 29B (for example, a sirocco fan having cascades of about 50) which are coupled to each other in series through the air blowing fan driving motor 27 in the longitudinal direction of the unit body 5.
  • As shown in Figs. 1 and 2, the lower side of the drain pan 23 is covered by the bottom plate 15 described above, the lower portions of the air blowing fans 29A, 29B are opened, and a suction grille (not shown) is detachably secured to the lower portions of the air blowing fans 29A, 29B. The opened portions of the air blowing fans 29A, 29B serve as an air suction port 30. An air blow-out port 40 of the unit body 5 is formed in the side plate 11C.
  • Furthermore, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, a refrigerant (liquid) pipe connection port 31, a refrigerant (gas) pipe connection port 32 and a drain pipe connection port 33 extend from the side plate 11B at the right side of Fig. 2 of the unit body 5. The refrigerant (liquid) pipe connection port 31 and the refrigerant (gas) pipe connection port 32 are connected to the indoor heat exchanger 21 at one ends thereof, and also connected to an outdoor unit (not shown) at the other ends thereof. The drain pipe connection port 33 is connected to the drain pump 25 at one end thereof, and also connected to a drain hose (not shown) at the other end thereof. The drain hose is led out to the outside.
  • In this embodiment, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3, an electrical equipment box 41 is mounted on the outer surface of the machine room 9 side of the side plate 11B at the short side.
  • As shown in Figs. 4 and 5, the electrical equipment box 41 has a box-shaped accommodating portion 45, and a box-shaped projecting portion 48 which intercommunicates with or connects to the accommodating portion 45. In the box-shaped accommodating portion 45 are disposed a control board 42 for controlling the operation of the air blowing fans 29A, 29B, the operation of an electrical expansion valve (not shown) connected to the indoor heat exchanger 21, etc., electrical equipment parts 43, a heat sink 44, etc. The control board 42 is disposed so as to face an intercommunication opening 49 through which the accommodating portion 45 and the projecting portion 48 intercommunicate with each other, and has a plate surface whose size is larger than the opening 49. The control board 42 is fixed to the wall surface 45A of the accommodating portion 45 by plural fixing members 50 so as to be spaced from the wall surface 45A at a predetermined interval K. A circular hole 54 through which wires connected to the control board 42 and the electrical parts 43 are passed is provided at the lower side of the projecting portion 48.
  • The box-shaped projecting portion 48 connects to the accommodating portion 45 to be near to the heat sink 44 side, and the insides of the projecting portion 48 and the inside of the heat sink 44 intercommunicate with each other through the opening 49. In addition, it has an air inlet port (slit) 46 and an air discharge port (slit) 47. The projecting portion 48 is homothetic to the accommodating portion 45. The homothetic ratio of the projecting portion 48 is equal to about one third in size of the accommodating portion 45, the volume thereof is remarkably smaller than the accommodating portion 45, the inside thereof is hollow and the hollow portion serves as an air flowing passage.
  • As shown in Fig. 3, the electrical equipment box 41 has a fixing bracket 51, and it is fixed to the outer surface of the unit body 5 through the bracket 51 under the state that the projecting portion 48 is inserted in an opening 52 formed in the side plate 11B of the unit body 5.
  • As shown in Fig. 2, the projecting portion 48 inserted in the opening 52 of the side plate 11B projects into the air flowing passage 55 based on one air blowing fan 29B, and under this state, the projecting portion 48 is disposed so that the air inlet port (slit) 46 is oriented in the downward direction in Fig. 2 and the air discharge port (slit) 47 is oriented in the air suction axis direction of the air blowing fan 29B. The air inlet port 46 is provided to the side plate 48A of the projecting portion 48. The discharge port 47 is provided at a position distant from the air inlet port 46 on the side plate 48B which is adjacent to the side plate 48A and faces the air suction port 60 of the air blowing fan 29B.
  • In this construction, air introduced from the air inlet port 46 cools the back surface of the control board 42, blown out from the discharge port 47 formed in the side plate 48B distant from the air inlet port 46 in the air suction axis direction of the air blowing fan 29B, and then sucked into the air blowing fan 29B.
  • Next, the operation will be described.
  • In this embodiment, when the air blowing fans 29A, 29B are driven, air is sucked from the air suction port 30 to the unit body 5. This air is heat-exchanged in the indoor heat exchanger 21 and blown out from the air blow-out port 40 of the unit body 5, and the air-conditioned air is blown into the room through an air blow-out port of the room which is connected to the air blown-out port 40 through the duct.
  • In this process, the projecting portion 48 projecting from the accommodating portion 45 is located in the air suction passage of the air blowing fan 29B, and thus a part of the sucked air is introduced from the air inlet port 46 of the projecting portion 48 into the projecting portion 48, and the air introduced into the projecting portion 48 induces turbulent flow while passing through the slit 46.
  • The back surface of the control board 42 is exposed in the accommodating portion 45, and thus it is heat-exchanged by forced convection when the air passes over the back surface of the control board, so that the temperature of the air is increased. The temperature-increased air is fed from the slit 47 of the side plate 48B of the projecting portion 48 to the outside of the projecting portion 48, and then led to the outer peripheral portion of the air suction port 60 of the air blowing fan 29B by air suction pressure.
  • In this construction, the air introduced from the air inlet port 46 is blown out from the discharge port 47 which is far away from the air inlet port 46, and thus the air is broadly circulated in the projecting portion 48 and effectively cools the back surface of the control board 42. Accordingly, according to this embodiment, the surface of the board is exposed to forced convection at all times by indoor air whose temperature is lower than air in the space under the roof in which the unit body 5 is set, so that the electrical equipment box 41 can be more simply cooled as compared with the conventional air conditioner. Furthermore, the amount of air passing through the inside of the electrical equipment box 41 is increased, and the increase of the temperature of the electrical equipment box 41 can be suppressed. As compared with the temperature of the electrical equipment box 41 when no slit is provided in the projecting portion 48, experiment data indicated the maximum temperature difference of about 40° in some sites.
  • The present invention is not limited to the electrical equipment box cooling mechanism used in the above embodiment, and various modifications may be made without departing from the subject matter of the present invention. For example, in this embodiment, the main body of the projecting portion is designed in rectangular parallelepiped, however, the present invention is not limited to this shape. Furthermore, vertically cut-out slits are used as the opening portion, however, the main body of the projecting portion may be formed in a cylindrical shape and the slits may be designed in a mesh structure. Furthermore, the numbers of slits formed in the air inlet port and the air outlet port are not limited to those numbers illustrated in the figures.
