When the diffuser is rotating upward in the region where the horizontal flaps move up and down at the same time, and the diffuser rotates upward, the horizontal flap rotates upward while the diffuser rotates downward. When moving, the horizontal flap rotates downward.

  The air conditioning indoor unit described above can perform various airflow controls by using two movable airflow direction adjusting blades as compared with the case where the airflow control is performed with one movable airflow direction adjusting blade.

  However, the air flow control is only practiced in the front blowing and the top blowing of the blown air, and the air flow control in the side blowing is unknown.

  The subject of this invention is providing the air-conditioning indoor unit which performs the side blowing of blowing air using two movable wind direction adjustment blades.

  An air-conditioning indoor unit according to a first aspect of the present invention is an air-conditioning indoor unit capable of guiding a flow of blown air blown from a blowout outlet in a predetermined direction by a Coanda effect, and includes a horizontal blade, a Coanda blade, and a control Department. A horizontal blade | wing adjusts the direction of blowing air up and down. The Coanda blades are provided in the vicinity of the air outlet, and make the Coanda airflow along the lower surface of the blown air whose direction is adjusted by the horizontal blades. A control part adjusts the direction of blowing air using the some angle combination attitude | position which combined the angle of each horizontal blade | wing and Coanda blade | wing with respect to a horizontal surface. The plurality of angle combination postures include a first angle combination posture and a second angle combination posture.

  The indoor air is sucked into the indoor fan 14 through the suction port and the indoor heat exchanger 13 by the operation of the indoor fan 14, and blown out from the blower outlet 15 through the blowout passage 18 from the indoor fan 14.

  The control unit 40 is located on the right side of the indoor heat exchanger 13 and the indoor fan 14 when the main body casing 11 is viewed from the front panel 11b, and controls the rotational speed of the indoor fan 14, the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32. Perform motion control.

  Moreover, the filter cleaning apparatus 70 is arrange | positioned between the top | upper surface part 11a and the indoor heat exchanger 13, and the dust adhering to a filter can be removed automatically.

(2) Detailed configuration (2-1) Front panel 11b
As shown in FIG. 1, the front panel 11 b extends toward the front edge of the lower horizontal plate 11 d while drawing a gentle arc curved surface from the upper front of the main body casing 11. There is a region recessed toward the inside of the main body casing 11 at the bottom of the front panel 11b. The depth of the depression in this region is set so as to match the thickness dimension of the Coanda blade 32, and constitutes a housing portion 130 in which the Coanda blade 32 is housed. The surface of the accommodating part 130 is also a gentle circular curved surface.

(2-2) Air outlet 15
As shown in FIGS. 1 and 2A, the air outlet 15 is a rectangular opening that is provided in the lower part of the main body casing 11 and has a long side in the horizontal direction (direction orthogonal to the paper surface of FIG. 1). The lower end of the blower outlet 15 is close to the front edge of the lower horizontal plate 11d, and the virtual plane connecting the lower end and the upper end of the blower outlet 15 is inclined forward and upward.

  FIG. 2B is a cross-sectional perspective view around the air outlet 15 of the air conditioning indoor unit 10. 2C is a cross-sectional perspective view around the air outlet 15 including the Coanda blade 32 of the air conditioning indoor unit 10. FIG. In FIG. 2B, the air outlet 15 is formed by a forming wall 115. The formation wall 115 includes an upper wall 111, a lower wall 112, and left and right side walls 113 and 114. In FIG. 2C, a gap C is formed between the rear end 322 of the Coanda blade 32 and the upper wall 111 of the forming wall 115.

(2-3) Scroll 17
The scroll 17 is a partition wall curved so as to face the indoor fan 14 and is a part of the bottom frame 16. The end F of the scroll 17 reaches the vicinity of the periphery of the air outlet 15. The air passing through the blowout flow path 18 travels along the scroll 17 and is sent in the tangential direction of the end F of the scroll 17. Therefore, if there is no wind direction adjusting blade 31 at the air outlet 15, the air direction of the air blown out from the air outlet 15 is a direction substantially along the tangent L 0 of the terminal end F of the scroll 17.

(2-4) Vertical wind direction adjusting plate 20
As shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2A, the vertical wind direction adjusting plate 20 includes a plurality of blade pieces 201 and a connecting rod 203 that connects the plurality of blade pieces 201. Further, the vertical air direction adjusting plate 20 is disposed nearer the indoor fan 14 than the air direction adjusting blades 31 in the blowout flow path 18.

  The plurality of blade pieces 201 swing left and right around a state perpendicular to the longitudinal direction as the connecting rod 203 horizontally reciprocates along the longitudinal direction of the outlet 15. The connecting rod 203 is horizontally reciprocated by a motor (not shown).

(2-5) Wind direction adjusting blade 31
As shown in FIGS. 1 and 2A, the wind direction adjusting blade 31 is an arc-shaped member. The wind direction adjusting blade 31 has an outer surface 31a including a convex outer curved surface and an inner surface 31b including a concave inner curved surface.

  The wind direction adjusting blade 31 has an area that can block the air outlet 15. In the state where the airflow direction adjusting blade 31 closes the air outlet 15, the outer side surface 31 a is finished to have a gentle circular curved surface that protrudes outwardly as if it is an extension of the curved surface of the front panel 11 b. Further, the inner side surface 31b (see FIG. 2A) of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 also forms an arc curved surface substantially parallel to the outer surface.

  The wind direction adjusting blade 31 has a rotation shaft 311 at the lower end. The rotating shaft 311 is connected to the rotating shaft of a stepping motor (not shown) fixed to the main body casing 11 in the vicinity of the lower end of the air outlet 15.

  The rotation shaft 311 rotates counterclockwise when viewed from the front in FIG. 1, so that the upper end of the airflow direction adjusting blade 31 moves away from the upper wall 111 side of the air outlet 15 to open the air outlet 15. On the contrary, the rotation shaft 311 rotates in the clockwise direction in FIG. 1, so that the upper end of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 moves closer to the upper wall 111 side of the air outlet 15 to close the air outlet 15.

  In a state where the airflow direction adjusting blade 31 opens the air outlet 15, the air blown out from the air outlet 15 flows along the inner side surface 31 b of the airflow direction adjusting blade 31. That is, the blown air blown out substantially along the tangential direction of the terminal end F of the scroll 17 is changed slightly upward by the wind direction adjusting blade 31.

(2-6) Coanda blade 32
As shown in FIGS. 1 and 2A, the Coanda blade 32 is an arc-shaped member. The Coanda blade 32 has an outer surface 32a including a convex outer curved surface and an inner surface 32b including a concave inner curved surface.

  The Coanda blade 32 is stored in the storage unit 130 while the air-conditioning operation is stopped or in an operation in the normal blowing mode described later. The Coanda blade 32 moves away from the accommodating portion 130 by rotating. The rotation shaft 321 of the Coanda blade 32 is provided in the vicinity of the lower end of the housing portion 130 and inside the main body casing 11 (a position above the upper wall of the blowout flow path 18). The rotating shaft 321 is connected with a predetermined interval. Therefore, as the rotation shaft 321 rotates and the Coanda blade 32 moves away from the accommodating portion 130, the height position of the lower end of the Coanda blade 32 rotates so as to become lower. In addition, the inclination when the Coanda blade 32 rotates and opens is gentler than the inclination of the front surface portion of the main body casing 11.

  In the present embodiment, the accommodating portion 130 is provided outside the air passage, and the entire Coanda blade 32 is accommodated outside the air passage when being accommodated. Instead of this structure, only a part of the Coanda blade 32 may be accommodated outside the air passage, and the rest may be accommodated in the air passage (for example, the upper wall portion of the air passage).

  Further, the Coanda blade 32 is rotated counterclockwise when viewed from the front in FIG. 1, so that the upper and lower ends of the Coanda blade 32 are separated from the housing portion 130 while drawing an arc. At that time, the upper end and the outlet of the Coanda blade 32 are separated. The shortest distance from the storage unit 130 above 15 is greater than the shortest distance between the lower end and the storage unit 130. In other words, the Coanda blade 32 is controlled so as to move away from the front surface of the main casing 11 as it goes forward. Then, when the Coanda blade 32 rotates in the clockwise direction in front view in FIG. 1, the Coanda blade 32 approaches the housing portion 130 and is finally housed in the housing portion 130. The operating state of the Coanda blade 32 includes a state where the Coanda blade 32 is housed in the storage unit 130, a posture rotated and tilted forward and upward, a posture rotated and substantially horizontal, and a posture rotated and tilted forward and downward. is there.

  In a state where the Coanda blade 32 is housed in the housing portion 130, the outer curved surface 32aa of the outer surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32 is a gentle circular curved surface that is outwardly convex so as to be an extension of the gentle circular curved surface of the front panel 11b. It is finished. Further, the inner curved surface 32bb of the inner side surface 32b of the Coanda blade 32 is finished to be a circular arc curved surface along the surface of the accommodating portion 130. In other words, the accommodating portion 130 is formed in a concave shape so as to follow the shape of the inner side surface 32 b of the Coanda blade 32 so that the outer surface 32 a of the Coanda blade 32 does not protrude beyond the front surface portion of the main body casing 11. Has been.

  Further, the dimension in the longitudinal direction of the Coanda blade 32 is set to be equal to or larger than the dimension in the longitudinal direction of the wind direction adjusting blade 31. The reason for this is to receive all of the blown air whose wind direction has been adjusted by the wind direction adjusting blade 31 by the Coanda blade 32, and its purpose is to prevent the blown air from the side of the Coanda blade 32 from short-circuiting.

(2-7) Filter cleaning device 70
The filter cleaning device 70 includes at least a filter 71, a filter driving roller 73, a brush 75, and a dust box 77. The filter 71 can circulate along a predetermined annular track by the rotation of the filter driving roller 73. The brush 75 is a brush for cleaning the filter, and is opposed to the filter driving roller 73 with the filter 71 interposed therebetween in order to scrape dust adhering to the filter 71. The dust box 77 collects dust that the brush 75 has scraped off from the filter 71.

  The control unit 40 counts the operation time of the air conditioning indoor unit 10, and when the accumulated operation time from the previous filter cleaning operation reaches a predetermined time (for example, 18 hours), the filter 75 is rotated while rotating the brush 75. 71 is circulated a predetermined number of times (for example, once).

  Meanwhile, since the brush 75 and the filter 71 move relative to each other, the bristle material of the brush 75 enters the mesh of the filter 71 and scrapes off the dust stuck in the mesh. The dust accumulates in a dust box 77 in which the brush 75 is disposed.

(3) Direction control of blown air The air-conditioning indoor unit of the present embodiment, as means for controlling the direction of blown air, is a normal blow mode in which only the wind direction adjusting blade 31 is rotated to adjust the direction of blown air, and the wind direction. The adjustment blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 are rotated so that the Coanda effect uses the Coanda effect to make the blown air flow along the outer surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32, and the tips of the wind direction adjustment blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32, respectively. Has a lower blowing mode in which the air is directed downward and the blowing air is directed downward.

  Since the attitude | position of the wind direction adjustment blade | wing 31 and the Coanda blade | wing 32 changes for every blowing direction of air in each said mode, each attitude | position is demonstrated, referring FIG. 3A-FIG. 3G. It should be noted that the blowing direction can be selected by the user via a remote controller or the like. It is also possible to control the mode change and the blowing direction to be automatically changed.

(3-1) Normal blowing mode The normal blowing mode is a mode in which only the wind direction adjusting blade 31 is rotated to adjust the direction of the blowing air, and includes “normal forward blowing” and “normal forward lower blowing”.

(3-1-1) Normal Front Blow FIG. 3A is a side view of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 when the blown air is normally forward blown. In FIG. 3A, when the user selects “normal blow”, the control unit 40 rotates the wind direction adjusting blade 31 to a position where the inner side surface 31b of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 becomes substantially horizontal. When the inner side surface 31b of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 has an arcuate curved surface as in the present embodiment, the wind direction adjusting blade 31 is rotated until the tangent L1 at the front end E1 of the inner curved surface 31bb becomes substantially horizontal. Let As a result, the blown air is in a front blowing state.

(3-1-2) Normal Front Down Blow FIG. 3B is a side view of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 when the blown air is normally forward under blown. In FIG. 3B, when the user wants to direct the blowing direction downward from “normal forward blowing”, the user may select “normal forward lower blowing”.

  At this time, the control unit 40 rotates the wind direction adjusting blade 31 until the tangent L1 at the front end E1 of the inner curved surface 31bb of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 becomes lower than the horizontal. As a result, the blown air is in a front lower blowing state.

(3-2) Coanda effect utilization mode Coanda (effect) means that if there is a wall near the flow of gas or liquid, it flows in the direction along the wall even if the direction of flow and the direction of the wall are different. It is a phenomenon to try (Asakura Shoten "Dictionary of Law"). The Coanda utilization mode includes “Coanda airflow front blowing” and “Coanda airflow ceiling blowing” using this Coanda effect.

  In addition, regarding the direction of the blown air and the direction of the Coanda airflow, the definition method differs depending on how the reference position is taken, and an example is shown below. However, the present invention is not limited to this. FIG. 4A is a conceptual diagram showing the direction of blown air and the direction of Coanda airflow. In FIG. 4A, in order to produce the Coanda effect on the outer surface 32a side of the Coanda blade 32, the inclination of the direction (D1) of the blown air changed by the wind direction adjusting blade 31 becomes close to the posture (inclination) of the Coanda blade 32. There is a need. If they are too far apart, the Coanda effect will not occur. Therefore, in this Coanda effect utilization mode, the Coanda blade 32 and the wind direction adjusting blade 31 need to be less than a predetermined opening angle, and the above relationship is established so that both the blades 31 and 32 are within the range. Like to do. Thereby, as shown in FIG. 4A, after the wind direction of the blown air is changed to D1 by the wind direction adjusting blade 31, it is further changed to D2 by the Coanda effect.

  Moreover, in the Coanda effect utilization mode of this embodiment, it is preferable that the Coanda blade | wing 32 exists in the front (downstream side of blowing) and the upper position of the wind direction adjustment blade | wing 31. FIG.

  Also, the opening angle between the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 is defined differently depending on how to set the reference position, and an example is shown below. However, the present invention is not limited to this. FIG. 4B is a conceptual diagram illustrating an example of an opening angle between the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32. In FIG. 4B, the angle between the straight line connecting the front and rear ends of the inner surface 31b of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the horizontal line is the inclination angle θ1 of the wind direction adjusting blade 31, and Is the inclination angle θ2 of the Coanda blade 32, the opening angle between the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 is θ = θ2−θ1. Note that θ1 and θ2 are not absolute values, and are negative values when they are below the horizontal line in the front view of FIG. 4B.

  In both “Coanda airflow forward blowing” and “Coanda airflow ceiling blowing”, the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 have an internal angle (FIGS. 5A and 5B) formed by the tangent to the terminal end F of the scroll 17 and the Coanda blade 32. It is preferable to take a posture that satisfies the condition that it is larger than the internal angle formed by the tangent line of the terminal end F of 17 and the wind direction adjusting blade 31.

  5A shows an inner angle R2 formed by a tangent L0 of the end F of the scroll 17 and a tangent L2 at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the Coanda blade 32 when the Coanda airflow is blown forward, and a tangent L0 of the end F of the scroll 17 It is a comparison figure with the internal angle R1 which the tangent L1 in the front end E1 of the inner side curved surface 31bb of the wind direction adjustment blade | wing 31 comprises. 5B shows an inner angle R2 formed by a tangent L0 of the end F of the scroll 17 and a tangent L2 at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the Coanda blade 32 when the Coanda airflow ceiling is blown, and a tangent L0 of the end F of the scroll 17 It is a comparison figure with the internal angle R1 which the tangent L1 in the front end E1 of the inner side curved surface 31bb of the wind direction adjustment blade | wing 31 comprises.

  As shown in FIG. 5A, in the Coanda blade 32 in the Coanda effect utilization mode, the tangent L2 at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the Coanda blade 32 is substantially horizontal, and the front end and the rear end of the Coanda blade 32 are outlets. 15, the gap between the rear end of the Coanda blade 32 and the upper wall 111 of the formation wall 115 of the blowout port 15 is small, so that it is on the inner side surface 32 b of the Coanda blade 32. The amount of airflow that passes through the airflow is small, and the possibility that the Coanda airflow is guided in the horizontal direction is small.

  As shown in FIG. 5B, in the Coanda blade 32 in the Coanda effect utilization mode, the tangent L2 at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the Coanda blade 32 is forward upward from the horizontal and upward outward from the blower outlet 15. To position. As a result, the Coanda airflow reaches further, and the generation of a strong airflow that passes over the inner side surface 32b of the Coanda blade 32 is suppressed, so that the upward guidance of the Coanda airflow is hardly hindered.

  In addition, since the height position of the rear end portion of the Coanda blade 32 is lower than when the operation is stopped, a Coanda airflow is easily generated due to the Coanda effect on the upstream side.

(3-2-1) Coanda Airflow Forward Blow FIG. 3C is a side view of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 during the Coanda airflow forward blow. In FIG. 3C, when “Coanda airflow forward blowing” is selected, the control unit 40 controls the airflow direction adjustment blade 31 until the tangent L1 at the front end E1 of the inner curved surface 31bb of the airflow direction adjustment blade 31 becomes lower than the horizontal. Rotate.

  Next, the control unit 40 rotates the Coanda blade 32 until the outer surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32 becomes substantially horizontal. When the outer surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32 has an arcuate curved surface as in the present embodiment, the Coanda blade 32 is moved until the tangent L2 at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the outer surface 32a becomes substantially horizontal. Rotate. That is, as shown in FIG. 5A, the inner angle R2 formed by the tangent line L0 and the tangent line L2 is larger than the inner angle R1 formed by the tangent line L0 and the tangent line L1.

  The blown air adjusted to the front lower blow by the wind direction adjusting blade 31 becomes a flow attached to the outer surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32 by the Coanda effect, and changes to a Coanda airflow along the outer surface 32a.

  Therefore, even if the tangent L1 direction at the front end E1 of the inner curved surface 31bb of the airflow direction adjusting blade 31 is the front lower blow, the tangent L2 direction at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the Coanda blade 32 is horizontal. The air is blown out in the tangential L2 direction at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the Coanda blade 32, that is, in the horizontal direction due to the Coanda effect.

  Thus, the Coanda blades 32 are separated from the front surface portion of the main body casing 11 and the inclination becomes gentle, and the blown air becomes more susceptible to the Coanda effect in front of the front panel 11b. As a result, even if the blown air whose wind direction is adjusted by the wind direction adjusting blade 31 is the front lower blow, it becomes horizontal blown air due to the Coanda effect.

(3-2-2) Coanda Airflow Ceiling Blow FIG. 3D is a side view of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 when the Coanda airflow ceiling is blown. In FIG. 3D, when “Coanda airflow ceiling blowing” is selected, the control unit 40 rotates the airflow direction adjusting blade 31 until the tangent L1 at the front end E1 of the inner curved surface 31bb of the airflow direction adjusting blade 31 becomes horizontal.

  Next, the control unit 40 rotates the Coanda blade 32 until the tangent L2 at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the outer surface 32a is directed upward. That is, as shown in FIG. 5B, the inner angle R2 formed by the tangent line L0 and the tangent line L2 is larger than the inner angle R1 formed by the tangent line L0 and the tangent line L1. The blown air adjusted to be blown horizontally by the wind direction adjusting blade 31 becomes a flow attached to the outer surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32 by the Coanda effect, and changes to a Coanda airflow along the outer surface 32a.

  Therefore, even if the tangent L1 direction at the front end E1 of the inner curved surface 31bb of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 is forward blowing, the tangent L2 direction at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the Coanda blade 32 is forward upward blowing. The air is blown out in the tangential L2 direction at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the Coanda blade 32, that is, the ceiling direction by the Coanda effect. Since the front end portion of the Coanda blade 32 protrudes outward from the air outlet 15, the Coanda airflow reaches further away. Furthermore, since the tip of the Coanda blade 32 is located above the outlet 15, the generation of strong airflow passing over the inner side surface 32b of the Coanda blade 32 is suppressed, and the upward induction of the Coanda airflow is inhibited. It is hard to be done.

  Thus, the Coanda blades 32 are separated from the front surface portion of the main body casing 11 and the inclination becomes gentle, and the blown air becomes more susceptible to the Coanda effect in front of the front panel 11b. As a result, even if the blown air whose wind direction is adjusted by the wind direction adjusting blade 31 is forward blowing, it becomes upward air due to the Coanda effect.

  The size in the longitudinal direction of the Coanda blade 32 is not less than the size in the longitudinal direction of the wind direction adjusting blade 31. Therefore, all of the blown air whose wind direction is adjusted by the wind direction adjusting blade 31 can be received by the Coanda blade 32, and the effect that the blown air is prevented from short-circuiting from the side of the Coanda blade 32 is also achieved.

(3-3) Normal Down-blowing Mode FIG. 3E is a side view of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 during down-blowing. 3E, when “downward blowing” is selected, the control unit 40 rotates the wind direction adjusting blade 31 until the tangent at the front end E1 of the inner curved surface 31bb of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 is directed downward.

  Next, the control unit 40 rotates the Coanda blade 32 until the tangent at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa is directed downward. As a result, the blown air passes between the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 and is blown downward.

  In particular, even when the wind direction adjusting blade 31 is directed downward from the tangential angle of the end portion of the scroll 17, the control unit 40 executes the down blowing mode to apply a downward air flow against the outer surface 32 a of the Coanda blade 32. Can be generated.

(3-4) Side Blow Mode (3-4-1) First Side Blow In the side blow mode, the control unit 40 controls the wind direction so that the front end of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the front end of the Coanda blade 32 are close to each other. The adjustment blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 are rotated.

  FIG. 3F is a side view of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 during the first side blowing. In FIG. 3F, when “first horizontal blowing” is selected, the front end portions of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 are brought close to each other so as to form a substantially triangular shape. The position where the front end portions of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 are closest to each other is on the downstream side of the blowout air from the blowout port 15.

  In a state where the front end portion of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the front end portion of the Coanda blade 32 are close to each other, the space sandwiched between the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 becomes narrower from the rear to the front. When the air travels forward from the air, the resistance to ventilation increases, and the air blown into this space tends to flow in the direction of low resistance, that is, to the side. As a result, the horizontal blowing of the blown air is realized.

  By the way, the rotation shaft 321 of the Coanda blade 32 is provided in the vicinity of the lower end of the housing portion 130 and above the upper wall of the blowout flow path 18, and the rear end of the Coanda blade 32 and the rotation shaft 321 are at a predetermined interval. Therefore, as the rotation shaft 321 rotates and the Coanda blade 32 moves away from the housing portion 130, the height position of the rear end 322 of the Coanda blade 32 becomes lower, and the upper wall of the outlet 15 The gap C with 111 widens.

  In particular, at the time of the first side blowing, the gap C between the rear end 322 of the Coanda blade 32 and the upper wall 111 of the outlet 15 is enlarged, so that the blown air passes through the gap C along the inner side surface 32b of the Coanda blade 32. A downward flow and a lateral flow through a space sandwiched between the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 are simultaneously generated. That is, downward blowing and side blowing are performed simultaneously.

(3-4-2) Second Side Blow Further, the front end portion of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the front end portion of the Coanda blade 32 are not necessarily close to each other. Side blowing is also possible when the shortest distance from the outer surface 32a is within a predetermined value.

  FIG. 3G is a side view of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 at the time of the second horizontal blowing. In FIG. 3G, the postures of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 are adjusted so that the shortest distance between the front end portion of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the outer surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32 is within 15 mm at the time of the second side blowing. The In addition, the position where the front end portion of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the outer side surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32 are closest is the downstream side of the blowout air from the blowout port 15.

  At the time of the second side blowing, the Coanda blade 32 is in a posture in which the front end portion is lifted upward than at the time of the first side blowing, so that the blown air that has passed through the gap C extends from the gap C along the inner side surface 32b of the Coanda blade 32. It becomes a forward and downward flow.

  Further, the blown air that has entered the space between the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 flows in the direction of low ventilation resistance, that is, to the side. As a result, front lower blowing and side blowing of the blown air are realized.

(4) Operation The operation of the air-conditioning indoor unit using the blown air direction control as described above will be described below with reference to the drawings.

(4-1) Coanda wind direction setting (4-1-1) 1st attitude | position of Coanda blade | wing 32 FIG. 6A is a side surface of the air-conditioning indoor unit installation space which shows the wind direction of the Coanda airflow when the Coanda blade | wing 32 takes a 1st attitude | position. FIG. In FIG. 6A, the air conditioning indoor unit 10 is installed above the indoor side wall. The Coanda blade 32 is in a state of being housed in the housing portion 130 (hereinafter referred to as a first posture). After the Coanda blade 32 is in the first posture, the air direction adjustment blade 31 is made to face upward from the horizontal so that the blown air whose air direction has been adjusted on the inner surface 31b of the wind direction adjustment blade 31 leaves the inner surface 31b. The direction is changed so as to be pulled by the outer surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32, and the first Coanda airflow flows along the outer surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32 and the front panel 11b.

  Here, a method for the user to select the Coanda airflow will be described. FIG. 7A is a block diagram showing the relationship between the control unit 40 and the remote controller 50. In FIG. 7A, the remote controller 50 transmits an infrared signal wirelessly. The remote controller 50 has switching means for switching the wind direction. Specifically, it has a display unit 52 that displays a wind direction selection menu and a cursor 52a for designating each wind direction selection menu so that the user can select the wind direction.

  First, the user selects “Coanda wind direction setting” from the menu displayed on the display unit 52 with the cursor 52a. Since the technology for selecting and confirming the menu by the remote controller 50 is widely disclosed, detailed description is omitted.

  FIG. 7B is a front view of the display unit 52 showing a lower menu of the “Coanda wind direction setting” menu. In FIG. 7B, the first to fifth Coanda angles are prepared in advance in the lower menu of the “Coanda wind direction setting” menu, and by specifying and confirming the first Coanda angle with the cursor 52a, the Coanda blade 32 is displayed. The first posture shown in FIG. 6A is taken, and a Coanda airflow in a first direction corresponding to the first Coanda angle is generated.

(4-1-2) Second posture and third posture of Coanda blade 32 Next, FIG. 6B is a side view of the air-conditioning indoor unit installation space showing the wind direction of the Coanda airflow when the Coanda blade 32 takes the second posture. It is. The second posture of the Coanda blade 32 in FIG. 6B can be achieved by specifying and confirming the second Coanda angle with the cursor 52a in FIG. 7B. The Coanda airflow generated when the Coanda blade 32 is in the second posture corresponds to the Coanda airflow described in the section “(3-2-2) Coanda airflow ceiling blowing”. When the second Coanda angle is selected, as shown in FIG. 3D, the control unit 40 rotates the wind direction adjusting blade 31 until the tangent L1 at the front end E1 of the inner curved surface 31bb of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 becomes horizontal. Next, the Coanda blade 32 is rotated until the tangent L2 at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the outer surface 32a is directed upward. Therefore, even if the tangent L1 direction at the front end E1 of the inner curved surface 31bb of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 is forward blowing, the tangent L2 direction at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the Coanda blade 32 is forward upward blowing. The air is blown out in the tangential L2 direction at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the Coanda blade 32, that is, the ceiling direction by the Coanda effect.

  Once the Coanda airflow is generated, it is possible to adjust the wind direction of the Coanda airflow by changing only the angle of the Coanda blade 32 without moving the airflow direction adjustment blade 31. For example, FIG. 8A is a side view of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 when the Coanda blade 32 is in the third posture. In FIG. 8A, the third posture of the Coanda blade 32 is downward than the second posture. In FIG. 8A, for comparison, the Coanda blade 32 in the second posture is drawn with a two-dot chain line, and the Coanda blade 32 in the third posture is drawn with a solid line.

  If the Coanda airflow is reliably generated in the second posture and the posture of the airflow direction adjusting blade 31 is not changed, the Coanda airflow is directed from the outer surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32 in the third posture that is downward than the second posture. It is clear that it does not peel. Thus, when it is desired to perform Coanda airflow ceiling blowing, it can be achieved by selecting the second Coanda angle or the third Coanda angle with the cursor 52a in FIG. 7B.

  In the present embodiment, it is assumed that the second posture and the third posture of the Coanda blade 32 are selected when it is desired to fly conditioned air far away. For example, when the height distance from the blower outlet 15 to the ceiling and the face-to-face distance from the blower outlet 15 to the facing wall are both large, the Coanda blade 32 is preferably in the second posture. On the other hand, although the height distance from the blower outlet 15 to the ceiling is small, when the facing distance from the blower outlet 15 to the facing wall is large, the posture of the Coanda blade 32 is preferably the third posture. Thus, the user can select the posture of the Coanda blade 32 according to the size of the indoor space via the remote controller 50, so that the user can use the conditioned air evenly in the air-conditioning target space. Is possible.

(4-1-3) Fourth posture and fifth posture of Coanda blade 32 Further, FIG. 6C is a side view of the air-conditioning indoor unit installation space showing the wind direction of the Coanda airflow when the Coanda blade 32 takes the fourth posture. is there. The 4th attitude | position of the Coanda blade | wing 32 in FIG. 6C can be comprised by specifying and confirming a 4th Coanda angle with the cursor 52a in FIG. 7B. The Coanda airflow generated when the Coanda blade 32 is in the fourth posture corresponds to the Coanda airflow described in the section “(3-2-1) Coanda airflow forward blowing”. When the fourth Coanda angle is selected, as shown in FIG. 3C, the controller 40 adjusts the wind direction adjustment blade until the tangent L1 at the front end E1 of the inner curved surface 31bb of the wind direction adjustment blade 31 becomes lower than the horizontal. Next, the Coanda blade 32 is rotated until the tangent L2 at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the outer surface 32a becomes substantially horizontal. Therefore, even if the tangent L1 direction at the front end E1 of the inner curved surface 31bb of the airflow direction adjusting blade 31 is the front lower blow, the tangent L2 direction at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the Coanda blade 32 is horizontal. The air is blown out in the tangential L2 direction at the front end E2 of the outer curved surface 32aa of the Coanda blade 32, that is, in the horizontal direction due to the Coanda effect.

  Once the Coanda airflow is generated, it is possible to adjust the wind direction of the Coanda airflow by changing only the angle of the Coanda blade 32 without moving the airflow direction adjustment blade 31. For example, FIG. 8B is a side view of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 when the Coanda blade 32 is in the fifth posture. In FIG. 8B, the fifth posture of the Coanda blade 32 is more downward than the fourth posture. In FIG. 8B, the Coanda blade 32 in the fourth posture is drawn with a two-dot chain line, and the Coanda blade 32 in the fifth posture is drawn with a solid line for comparison.

  If the Coanda airflow is reliably generated in the fourth posture and the posture of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 is not changed, the Coanda airflow is directed from the outer surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32 in the fifth posture, which is downward than the fourth posture. It is clear that it does not peel off. Thus, when it is desired to carry out Coanda airflow forward blowing, it can be achieved by selecting the fourth Coanda angle or the fifth Coanda angle with the cursor 52a in FIG. 7B.

  As apparent from the above description, the attitude of the wind direction adjusting vane 31 is different from each of the first attitude, the second attitude, and the fourth attitude of the Coanda vane 32. In other words, the Coanda airflow by the Coanda blade 32 can be directed in any direction by a combination of the posture of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the posture of the Coanda blade 32.

  As described above, the first posture to the fifth posture of the Coanda blade 32 generate the Coanda airflow by combining the angles of the Coanda blade 32 and the wind direction adjusting blade 31 when using the Coanda airflow. These postures are called first angle combination postures.

(4-2) Side blowing direction setting (4-2-1) First side blowing posture FIG. 6D shows the direction of the blown air when the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 take the first side blowing posture. It is a side view of an air-conditioning indoor unit installation space. FIG. 7C is a front view of the display unit 52 showing a lower menu of the “wind direction setting” menu. In FIG. 7C, [Normal Front Blow], [Normal Front Down Blow], [First Side Blow], and [Second Side Blow] are prepared in advance in the lower menu of the “wind direction setting” menu. Specify any item with the cursor 52a and confirm.

  In FIG. 7C, when [first horizontal blowing] is selected, as shown in FIG. 3F, the control unit 40 brings the front end portions close to each other so that the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 form a substantially triangular shape. . At this time, the postures of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 are the first horizontal blowing posture. Due to the first side blowing posture, the blown air flows downward (downward blowing) along the inner side surface 32b of the Coanda blade 32 and flows horizontally through the space between the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 ( Side blowing) is performed simultaneously.

(4-2-2) Second Side Blowing Position FIG. 6E is a side view of the air conditioning indoor unit installation space showing the direction of the blown air when the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 take the second side blowing posture. is there. In FIG. 7C, when [2nd horizontal blowing] is selected, as shown in FIG. 3G, the control unit 40 sets the shortest distance between the front end portion of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the outer surface 32a of the Coanda blade 32 within 15 mm. The postures of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 are adjusted so as to be within the range. At this time, the postures of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 are the second horizontal blowing posture.

  At the time of the second side blow, the blown air enters the space sandwiched between the air flow adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32, and the air flowing downward along the inner side surface 32b of the Coanda blade 32. The side blowing that flows toward the same time is performed simultaneously.

  As described above, the first horizontal blowing posture and the second horizontal blowing posture realize at least the horizontal blowing, and are referred to as the second angle combination posture in distinction from the first angle combination posture.

(5) Features (5-1)
In the air conditioning indoor unit 10, the control unit 40 adjusts the direction of the blown air using a plurality of angle combination postures obtained by combining the angles of the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the Coanda blade 32 with respect to the horizontal plane. In the first angle combination posture, the angles of the Coanda blade 32 and the wind direction adjustment blade 31 when using the Coanda airflow are combined to realize the fifth posture from the first posture of the Coanda blade 32 in the Coanda effect utilization mode. .

(5-2)
Further, in the second angle combination posture, the first horizontal blowing posture in which the tips of the Coanda blade 32 and the wind direction adjusting blade 31 are brought close to the shortest, the tip of one of the Coanda blade 32 and the wind direction adjusting blade 31, and the other adjacent surface. The second side blowing posture is realized so that the distance between the first and second sides is within 15 mm. Since the space between the Coanda blade 32 and the airflow direction adjusting blade 31 is narrowed from the rear to the front and the ventilation resistance is increased, the blown air that has entered the space easily flows to the side. As a result, the blown air can be blown sideways.

(5-3)
In addition, the position where one of the tips of the Coanda blade 32 and the wind direction adjusting blade 31 and the other adjacent surface in the second angle combination posture are closest to each other is on the downstream side of the blowout air from the blowout port 15. Therefore, the blown air that has changed its direction to the side in the space between the Coanda blade 32 and the wind direction adjusting blade 31 is reliably blown to the side.

(5-4)
In the air conditioning indoor unit 10, the main body casing 11 is provided with an upper wall 111, a lower wall 112, and left and right side walls 113, 114 that form a blowout port 15, and part of the blown air is Coanda blades. The air flows along the upper side surface 32 a of the Coanda blade 32 from the gap between the rear end 322 of 32 and the upper wall 111. Therefore, simultaneous blowing of the blown air forward and side, or simultaneous downward and side blowing is realized. It should be noted that an air amount more than half of the blown air is blown from the side of the space sandwiched between the Coanda blade 32 and the wind direction adjusting blade 31.

  The present invention is useful for a wall-mounted air conditioning indoor unit.
