Abstract

An operating device (2) simplifies operation by presenting a user with pre-parameterised designated operating programmes for selection, with a display device (3). The user can add to these individually set, client's own operating programmes which they can designate as they wish. These operating programmes can be stored in the operating device (2) under their set name and can be allocated to operating elements with which they can be requested directly. The operation of the appliance is simplified and accelerated especially by the possibility of establishing informative names for the client's own operating programmes. The risk of maloperation of the appliance is also reduced.

Description

A method for establishing an operating device of a program-controlled domestic appliance as well as the operating device for performing the method

The invention relates to a method for setting an operating device of a program-controlled domestic appliance with a memory device for receiving operation program data to at least one operating element for selecting an operating program from a predetermined selection of operating programs, each associated with a label, and a display device for displaying the name of at least one operating program, as well as an operating device for carrying out the

Process.

The operation of a program-controlled domestic appliance with its parameters is determined by the setting of the operation program, The operating program is set in an operating device of the household appliance, the control according to the set loading thebsprogramms the household appliance. For this, the operating device has controls or input devices relating to the execution of setting operations by an operator.

To simplify the adjustment of the operating program, the operating device usually includes a predetermined range of at least partially parameterized standard operating programs, from which the operator can select a. This may be operating programs that can be used even without additional settings or in which significant parameters are preset and the operator has to make only a few settings to suit the specific application in addition. This preset operating programs are usually associated with designations by which they can be selected by the operator. Thus, it is common for example in operating devices for washing machines to set the operating program with a rotary selector switch, around on the control panel in the form of a rotary scale, the names of the individual standard operating programs are printed. From DE 28 24 973 A1 discloses a program-controlled domestic appliance with a

known operating device of the type mentioned, are available in the control of a microprocessor with program memory of the operator by means of a display device operating program suggestions that can be selected by operating corresponding controls. These known control devices for home appliances in particular have the following disadvantages. In practice, standard operating programs are offered under specified terms as a selection with which as many applications need to be covered and their names should be understandable as many users, with an excessive number of selectable operating programs is detrimental. In the known from DE 28 24 973 A1 operating device, although any number of operating programs can be added to the default selection, however, a too high number is disadvantageous because only a limited number can be displayed simultaneously with the display device and too many operational programs, the clarity and degrade the usability.

Since the many, necessary in practice, operating program settings can be considered by the usually few preset operating programs only partially, are at the specified operating programs only a few, for as many similar applications provides appropriate context parameter preset. The operator must make further settings according to the specific application in such cases unfavorably to select a default operating program offered.

The predetermined, usually very limited in number to operating programs general terms are assigned to it, since they each need to use cases cover a number of similar applications. For the operator this raises itself every time the task of selecting the best for the specific application suitable operating program based on these commonly held designations. This increases the risk of incorrect operation considerably. Particularly when operated by lay people or people who use rarely home appliances, it can therefore easily vorkom- men that the wrong operation program is selected.

In a laundry treating machine, for example, in a predetermined selection usually some standard operating programs are available to match various laundry or types of treatment, for example, the operation programs "hot wash", "coloreds", "easy-care" or "wool", in which the operating parameters at least partly in the are substantially matched to the corresponding type of washing or of treatment. These terms are not always used in daily use to refer to specific items of laundry or types. So what operating program goes out of them is not apparent now, for example, colored or white shirts, jeans or curtains that's right. This decision must be made by the operator and already requires considerable knowledge of the material properties of the treated laundry. Furthermore, this decision must divorce in each wash again and may be taken by people who rarely perform this function so that a significant risk for operator errors exist. The aforementioned laundry appliances concerned drawbacks apply equally to other household appliances such as dishwashers, ranges, hobs or cooling devices, provided they have program controls.

The invention has for its object to provide a method and an operating device of the type mentioned, which facilitates the operation particularly with regard to the necessary in practice specific operating program settings and improved and the risk of operating errors especially in operation by

Amateur or rarely Appliances people use can be reduced.

According to the invention this object is achieved by a method in which at least a customer-specific operating program and set a name for this operating program and is included in the predetermined range of operating programs by storing in the memory means, and by a control device for

can be solved carrying out this method, a label set in which at least a customer-specific operating program and for this operating program and included in the predetermined range of operating programs by storing in the memory means. The setting of both the customer-specific operating program and the designation of this can be done conveniently with control of the operating device. For the application of the solution according to the invention, the operating device is advantageously equipped with a nonvolatile and rewritable memory means. In this way, an operator can set the appropriate operating program with all the necessary operating parameters and save them under a freely adjustable for each name occurring application, the operator can select an obvious for them, meaningful name. This may be, for example, the specific designation of the pieces of laundry in a washing machine to be washed with this operational program, such as "curtains" or "shirts". Further, different operators can set personal operating programs and provided with personal names. For example, for inexperienced users such as children with a poor handling of household appliances can not be excluded, an operating program under a special name be set with the no harm can be done. Once the various occurring in a household applications, the customized operating programs are stored with their names fully parameterized in particular, the selection of the proper operation of the program is only necessary for commissioning, which is also facilitated by selectable, descriptive names.

The operation is facilitated and speeded up, with the risk of incorrect operation due to the freely settable numbers is reduced.

As labels for customer-specific operating program a sequence of characters can be set, said character positions individually selected and one can be selected for a character position as selected from a predetermined selection of characters. The selection of individual character positions can be done in the display device by using a cursor is moved along the possible positions for characters. At the spot where the cursor is currently located, a character can then be set. The character can be entered for example by a Eingabeeinrich- tung or selected from a predetermined range. Preferably, the selection of the alphabet with numerals and, if appropriate, some probe round / or punctuation marks. In this way, a sign and a string can be set for each position, and interruptions in the string or multi-word names are possible by no character or a space is set for some positions.

Furthermore, it is conceivable that the labels for the customer-specific operating programs from a predetermined selection can be selected by designation possibilities. In order for the operator suggestions for the name can be given, so that their considerations in this regard are taken. Further, it can be provided that the designation of a customer-specific operating program from the description of a standard operating program and a name of a valid for this standard operating program parameter can be composed of at least at least the name of the default operating program or a parameter may be selected from a predetermined selection of at least , The set in the respective customer-specific operating program parameters can be included in the name part so at least so that the settings are already apparent from their particular for a familiar to those used for standard operation programs designations operator. For selecting an item from a predetermined selection of the elements in the two possible sequences can be indexable. This can be done for example with two operating elements, with which the elements can be scrolled through in the opposite order, wherein only one is displayed in the display device. For selecting the elements to the display of the desired indexed.

Alternatively, multiple elements can be simultaneously displayed and a mark in the two possible sequences to be forwarded from one element to the next. The selected or highlighted item can then be taken.

In an advantageous embodiment, the operating device can be set up such that at least one is displayed therefrom in a respective area of ​​the display means for selecting an item from a predetermined selection and may be selected by pressing an operating element associated with the element displaying region spatially. The spatial mapping may be made by arranging operating elements in particular in the form of pressure switches in addition to the display device in the vicinity of the regions. Also transparent controls can be used which are mounted on the corresponding areas of the display device. The items can be displayed line by line, wherein for carrying out this method controls in an extension of the line to the left and / or right of the display device can be disposed. With thus arranged controls the elements displayed in the corresponding row can be selected. If the controls are arranged on either side of a row, two elements may be displayed in succession, and are respectively assigned to the left or the right of the line disposed operating element, with which the element to the left and right respectively displayed can be selected in this line. If not all elements of the predetermined selection are simultaneously displayed by the display device, for example due to their number in a range of the display device a reference to other elements can be displayed and can not by actuation of an associated this area spatially operating element at this time indicated elements of the selection be displayed. In an arrival pointing device with several lines of "more" can be displayed for example in the top row elements of choice and in the last of reference. In this way, the number of elements that can be included in a selection is not limited by the number of elements that are simultaneously displayed by the display means. Alternatively, different subsets of ele- ments of the selection can if not all elements of the predetermined selection are simultaneously displayed by the display device, are displayed in sequence in a repeating sequence. Also in this manner a restriction on the number of elements in a selection is prevented by the display capacity of the display device.

For selecting an item from a selection, and more particularly to Weiterschaiten of the elements, a rotary switch may be provided in particular in the form of a domestic kreme tellen encoder as a control element, if the display device associated control elements are not already for the selection of elements is provided. Rotary switches have the advantage that the individual rotational positions, according to which the elements or a selection mark to be diverted, can be passed through very quickly with them.

The elements a predetermined selection mentioned in the above-described selection process can be the character positions, each adjustable for one character position mark, possibilities for the predetermined operating program name, names of predetermined standard operating programs or of adjustable parameters for this particular.

There may further be provided that the designation of the at least one customer-specific operating program with an external input device, in particular in the form of a connectable to the operating device keyboard, is set via a data transmission network for building automation or a particular infrared serial interface recognition device by means of a voice.

In addition, the possibility can be provided that a notice in writing is input, is assigned to the at least one customer-specific operating program stored in the storage device and a customer-specific operating program can be displayed by the display device upon selection of the at least. These may be signs that should be taken into account in the corresponding customer-specific operating program, For example, the statement may at an operating program for washing jeans "jeans contact before washing" are stored, is displayed at the selection of this equipment program.

Advantageously, the operating device at least one control element to which a customized operating program can be assigned, and to which an associated customer-specific operating program can be called. Conceivable are special keys with which individual customized operating programs called directly without further selection acts and, if necessary can also be started. The operation is further simplified, and more particularly accelerated. Particularly advantageously, the invention in laundry treatment machines because of their numerous adjustable operational parameters can be used, wherein they can be advantageously used even in program-controlled dishwashing machines, cooking hobs, cookers, refrigerators, computers. Further details, features and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the following
