Description

空気調和機の室内機Indoor unit of air conditioner
 本発明は、遠心ファンおよび遠心ファンを駆動するモータを備えた空気調和機の室内機に関する。 The present invention relates to an indoor unit of an air conditioner provided with a centrifugal fan and a motor for driving the centrifugal fan.
 空気調和機の室内機は、例えば特許文献1に開示されているように、内部に送風機を備えている。上記室内機は、送風機を回転させることにより、吸込み口から吸い込んだ空気を、熱交換器を介して、吹出し口から吹き出す。 The indoor unit of the air conditioner is internally provided with a blower as disclosed in, for example, Patent Document 1. The indoor unit rotates the blower to blow out the air sucked from the suction port from the blowout port through the heat exchanger.
 近年の空気調和機には、空気調和機能に加えて空気清浄機能を備えたものが開発されている。例えばHEPAフィルタ(High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter)は通風抵抗が大きく、空気清浄にHEPAフィルタを使用した場合には、吹出し口から吹き出す空気の風量が大幅に低下する。そこで、空気清浄にHEPAフィルタを使用する場合には、十分な風量(十分な空気の吸込み量)を確保する必要がある。 In recent years, in addition to the air conditioning function, air conditioners having an air cleaning function have been developed. For example, the HEPA filter (High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter) has a large ventilation resistance, and when the HEPA filter is used for air cleaning, the volume of air blown out from the outlet is significantly reduced. Therefore, when using a HEPA filter for air cleaning, it is necessary to secure a sufficient air volume (a sufficient amount of air suction).
 一般的な空気調和機では、送風機として、クロスフローファンと称される横断流ファンを用いている。しかしながら、十分な風量を得るためには、送風機として、シロッコファンと称される遠心ファンを用いることが好ましい。 In a general air conditioner, a cross flow fan called a cross flow fan is used as a blower. However, in order to obtain a sufficient air flow, it is preferable to use a centrifugal fan called a sirocco fan as a blower.
 特許文献1には、軸方向に、それぞれケーシング内に配置された遠心ファンを2つ配置し、2つのケーシングの間に設けられたモータで、2つの遠心ファンを回転する空気調和機の室内機が開示されている。 In Patent Document 1, an indoor unit of an air conditioner in which two centrifugal fans respectively disposed in a casing are disposed in an axial direction, and a motor provided between two casings rotates the two centrifugal fans. Is disclosed.

 しかしながら、特許文献1では、2つのケーシングの間は仕切り材で仕切られており、各ケーシングの吸込部から吸入した空気を、遠心ファンの回転により加速して、各ケーシングの吐出部から吐出する。このため、特許文献1の構成では、モータの上方および下方に無駄なスペースが存在する。 However, in Patent Document 1, two casings are partitioned by a partition material, and the air taken in from the suction portion of each casing is accelerated by the rotation of the centrifugal fan and discharged from the discharge portion of each casing. Therefore, in the configuration of Patent Document 1, useless space exists above and below the motor.
 本発明の一態様は、遠心ファンを駆動するモータの上方または下方のスペースを、遠心ファンの空気の吸い込みに利用することができる空気調和機の室内機を提供することを目的とする。 An aspect of the present invention aims to provide an indoor unit of an air conditioner in which a space above or below a motor for driving a centrifugal fan can be used for suction of air of the centrifugal fan.
 上記の課題を解決するために、本発明の一態様にかかる空気調和機の室内機は、空気を吸込む吸込み口を少なくとも1つ有する筐体内に、左右方向に複数配列された遠心ファンと、上記遠心ファンを回転駆動させる駆動軸を左右に有し、隣り合う遠心ファン間に配置されたモータと、上記モータの外周面の一部を覆うモータカバーと、を備え、上記モータカバーは、上記吸込み口に向かって突出して設けられた壁体を少なくとも1つ有し、上記壁体は、上記吸込み口との対向面から上記駆動軸の軸方向の一方の側面に繋がる風路を形成する第1開口部と、上記第1開口部と隔壁で分離され、上記吸込み口との対向面から上記駆動軸の軸方向の他方の側面に繋がる風路を形成する第2開口部と、を有している。 In order to solve the above-mentioned subject, an indoor unit of an air conditioner concerning one mode of the present invention has a centrifugal fan arranged in multiple numbers in a horizontal direction in a case which has at least one suction opening which sucks in air, and the above The motor cover has a drive shaft for driving to rotate the centrifugal fans on the left and right, and a motor disposed between the adjacent centrifugal fans, and a motor cover that covers a part of the outer peripheral surface of the motor. A first air passage having at least one wall provided projecting toward the mouth, the wall forming an air passage connected to a side face in the axial direction of the drive shaft from a surface opposite to the suction opening An opening, and a second opening separated from the first opening and the partition wall and forming an air passage connected from the opposite surface to the suction port to the other side surface in the axial direction of the drive shaft; There is.
 本発明の一態様によれば、遠心ファンを駆動するモータの上方または下方のスペースを、遠心ファンの空気の吸い込みに利用することができる空気調和機の室内機を提供することができる。 According to one aspect of the present invention, it is possible to provide an indoor unit of an air conditioner in which the space above or below the motor for driving the centrifugal fan can be used for suction of air of the centrifugal fan.

(Schematic configuration of the indoor unit 1)
As shown in FIG. 1, the indoor unit 1 of the air conditioner includes an indoor unit main body 2 and a baffle plate 3 provided on the front surface of the indoor unit main body 2. As shown in FIG. 2, the indoor unit body 2 includes a cabinet 30, a blower 13, a heat exchanger 14, and a drain pan 21.
 室内機本体部2の上部には、第1吸込み口11が設けられている。室内機本体部2の下部には、第2吸込み口12が設けられている。室内機本体部2の前部には、吹出し口17が設けられている。室内機本体部2は、第1吸込み口11の内側(下側)に、第1フィルタ15を有し、第2吸込み口12の内側(上側)に第2フィルタ16を有している。第1フィルタ15は、例えばプレフィルタに相当する機能を有するフィルタであり、第2フィルタ16よりも低性能であり、第2フィルタ16よりも通風抵抗が小さいフィルタである。第2フィルタ16は、例えばHEPAフィルタ(High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter)であり、第1フィルタ15よりも高性能であり、第1フィルタ15よりも通風抵抗が大きいフィルタである。 A first suction port 11 is provided at the top of the indoor unit body 2. A second suction port 12 is provided at the lower part of the indoor unit body 2. At the front of the indoor unit body 2, a blowoff port 17 is provided. The indoor unit body 2 has a first filter 15 on the inner side (lower side) of the first suction port 11 and has a second filter 16 on the inner side (upper side) of the second suction port 12. The first filter 15 is, for example, a filter having a function equivalent to a prefilter, is a filter that has lower performance than the second filter 16, and has a smaller ventilation resistance than the second filter 16. The second filter 16 is, for example, a HEPA filter (High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter), which is a filter that has higher performance than the first filter 15 and has a larger ventilation resistance than the first filter 15.
 第1吸込み口11から室内機1に吸い込まれた空気は、第1フィルタ15を経た後、送風ファン41により熱交換器14へ吹き付けられ、吹出し口17から吹き出される。第2吸込み口12から室内機1に吸い込まれた空気は、第2フィルタ16を経た後、送風ファン41により熱交換器14へ吹き付けられ、吹出し口17から吹き出される。なお、送風機13の詳細については後述する。 The air sucked into the indoor unit 1 from the first suction port 11 passes through the first filter 15 and is then blown to the heat exchanger 14 by the blower fan 41 and blown out from the blowout port 17. The air sucked into the indoor unit 1 from the second suction port 12 passes through the second filter 16 and is then blown to the heat exchanger 14 by the blower fan 41 and blown out from the blowout port 17. The details of the blower 13 will be described later.
 第1吸込み口11には、第1吸込み口11を開閉する開閉蓋18が設けられている。開閉蓋18は、キャビネット30の上部に取り付けられている。開閉蓋18は、空調モードで運転する場合に開状態となる。また、開閉蓋18は、空気調和機が停止状態である場合、もしくは、空気調和機を、空気清浄モードで運転する場合に閉状態となる。 The first suction port 11 is provided with an open / close lid 18 for opening and closing the first suction port 11.

 空調モードは空気清浄機能よりも空気調和機能を優先する場合の空気調和機の運転モードである。空気清浄モードは、空気調和機能よりも空気清浄機能を優先する場合の空気調和機の運転モードである。空調モードでは、空気は、主として第1吸込み口11から吸い込まれる。一方、空気清浄モードでは、空気は、第2吸込み口12のみから吸い込まれる。 The air conditioning mode is an operation mode of the air conditioner in which the air conditioning function is given priority over the air cleaning function. The air purification mode is an operation mode of the air conditioner in which the air purification function is prioritized over the air conditioning function. In the air conditioning mode, air is drawn mainly from the first suction port 11. On the other hand, in the air cleaning mode, air is drawn only from the second suction port 12.
 導風板3は、吹出し口17から吹き出された空気(気流)が、冷房運転では斜め上に向かい、暖房運転では斜め下に向かうように、配置される。 The air guide plate 3 is disposed such that the air (air flow) blown out from the outlet 17 is directed obliquely upward in the cooling operation and obliquely downward in the heating operation.
 図2~図4に示すように、キャビネット30は、上面部31と、背面部32と、下面部33と、を有している。上面部31には第1吸込み口11が設けられている。下面部33は第2吸込み口12が設けられている。 As shown in FIGS. 2 to 4, the cabinet 30 has an upper surface portion 31, a back surface portion 32 and a lower surface portion 33. The upper surface portion 31 is provided with a first suction port 11. The lower surface portion 33 is provided with a second suction port 12.
 キャビネット30は、送風機13、熱交換器14、およびドレンパン21を支持している。キャビネット30は筐体の一部であり、送風機13は、キャビネット30の内部に設けられている。導風板3、熱交換器14、およびドレンパン21は、キャビネット30に組み付けられている。 The cabinet 30 supports the blower 13, the heat exchanger 14, and the drain pan 21. The cabinet 30 is a part of a housing, and the blower 13 is provided inside the cabinet 30. The baffle plate 3, the heat exchanger 14, and the drain pan 21 are assembled to the cabinet 30.
 熱交換器14は、2個の熱交換器を上下に連結し、連結部が前方へ突出したV字状であり、送風機13の前方(送風機13よりも室内機1の前面側)に配置されている。 The heat exchanger 14 has a V-shape in which two heat exchangers are connected vertically and the connecting portion protrudes forward, and is disposed in front of the blower 13 (on the front side of the indoor unit 1 relative to the blower 13) ing.
 ドレンパン21にはドレンパイプ22が接続されている。熱交換器14で生じた水は、ドレンパン21で受け止められ、ドレンパイプ22を通じて空気調和機から排出される。 A drain pipe 22 is connected to the drain pan 21. Water generated by the heat exchanger 14 is received by the drain pan 21 and discharged from the air conditioner through the drain pipe 22.

FIG. 6 shows a longitudinal cross-sectional view of the main part of the blower 13 when the blower 13 is cut in the longitudinal direction at the position of the first opening 74 of the motor cover 50. FIG. In FIGS. 5 and 6, the fan casing 47 is not shown.
 図5および図6に示すように、送風機13は、2つの送風ファン41と、図示しない2つのファンケーシング47(図2参照)と、ファンモータ51(モータ)と、モータカバー50と、を備えている。 As shown in FIGS. 5 and 6, the blower 13 includes two blower fans 41, two fan casings 47 (see FIG. 2) not shown, a fan motor 51 (motor), and a motor cover 50. ing.
 2つの送風ファン41は、キャビネット30内に、室内機1の長手方向に沿って、左右方向に並設されている。図2に示すように、各ファンケーシング47は、それぞれ、各送風ファン41の外周面の一部を覆っている。図3、図4、図5の(a)~(c)、および図6の(a)~(c)に示すように、モータカバー50は、ファンモータ51の外周面の一部を覆っている。 The two blower fans 41 are arranged in the cabinet 30 in the lateral direction along the longitudinal direction of the indoor unit 1. As shown in FIG. 2, each fan casing 47 covers a part of the outer peripheral surface of each blower fan 41. As shown in FIGS. 3, 4 and 5 (a) to (c) and 6 (a) to (c), the motor cover 50 covers a part of the outer peripheral surface of the fan motor 51. There is.
 以下、2つの送風ファン41を区別する必要がある場合には、ファンモータ51の左側の送風ファン41を第1送風ファン41aと称し、ファンモータ51の右側の送風ファン41を第2送風ファン41bと称する。一方、第1送風ファン41aと第2送風ファン41bとを特に区別する必要がないときは、これら第1送風ファン41aおよび第2送風ファン41bを、それぞれ、単に送風ファン41と記す。 Hereinafter, when it is necessary to distinguish the two blower fans 41, the blower fan 41 on the left side of the fan motor 51 is referred to as the first blower fan 41a, and the blower fan 41 on the right side of the fan motor 51 is the second blower fan 41b. It is called. On the other hand, when it is not necessary to distinguish the first blower fan 41a and the second blower fan 41b, the first blower fan 41a and the second blower fan 41b are simply referred to as the blower fan 41, respectively.
 ファンモータ51と2つの送風ファン41とは、室内機1の長手方向に沿って直列に接続して配置されている。ファンモータ51は、円筒形状を有するモータ本体52の左右の端面にそれぞれ駆動軸53を有する両軸モータである。 The fan motor 51 and the two blower fans 41 are connected in series along the longitudinal direction of the indoor unit 1 and arranged. The fan motor 51 is a double-axis motor having drive shafts 53 on the left and right end faces of a cylindrical motor body 52.
 ファンモータ51は、左右に隣り合う送風ファン41の間に配置されており、駆動軸53を介して、各送風ファン41に、それぞれ回転力を伝達することで、各送風ファン41を回転駆動する。図示はしないが、熱交換器14は、送風機13の前方に、2つの送風ファン41に跨って配設される。 The fan motor 51 is disposed between the blower fans 41 adjacent to the left and right, and transmits rotational power to the blower fans 41 via the drive shaft 53 to rotationally drive the blower fans 41. . Although not shown, the heat exchanger 14 is disposed in front of the blower 13 so as to straddle the two blower fans 41.
 図5および図6に示すように、送風ファン41は、2つの多翼ロータ42(羽根車)を互いのディスク面42aで接続した構成のシロッコファン(遠心ファン)である。送風ファン41としてシロッコファンを用いることで、クロスフローファンよりも大きい風量・風圧を得ることができる。 As shown in FIGS. 5 and 6, the blower fan 41 is a sirocco fan (centrifugal fan) having a configuration in which two multi-blade rotors 42 (impellers) are connected by the disk surfaces 42 a of each other. By using a sirocco fan as the blower fan 41, it is possible to obtain an air volume and pressure greater than that of the cross flow fan.
 送風ファン41は、軸方向の両方の側面に開口部44を有している。送風ファン41は、所定の方向に多翼ロータ42が回転することにより、多翼ロータ42における、駆動軸53に平行な方向の開口部44から空気を吸込み、多翼ロータ42の外周面(つまり、回転面)の開口部45から空気を吹き出す。したがって、ファンケーシング47には、送風ファン41の開口部44と対向する位置に、それぞれ開口部48(図2参照)が形成されている。 The blower fan 41 has openings 44 on both side surfaces in the axial direction. The blower fan 41 sucks air from the opening 44 in the direction parallel to the drive shaft 53 in the multi-blade rotor 42 by rotation of the multi-blade rotor 42 in a predetermined direction, and the outer peripheral surface of the multi-blade rotor 42 (that is, , Air from the opening 45 of the rotational surface). Accordingly, openings 48 (see FIG. 2) are formed in the fan casing 47 at positions facing the openings 44 of the blower fan 41.
 各送風ファン41は、中心部に回転軸43を有し、隣り合う送風ファン41の回転軸43の位置は、垂直方向において一致している。 Each blower fan 41 has a rotation shaft 43 at the center, and the positions of the rotation shafts 43 of the blower fans 41 adjacent to each other coincide in the vertical direction.
 また、各送風ファン41は、ファンモータ51の駆動軸53を固定するためのボス46を備えている。ボス46は、例えばアルミニウム製の中空の直管で形成されている。ボス46は、各多翼ロータ42における開口部44から一部突出するように形成されている。つまり、ボス46は、多翼ロータ42が回転する際に空気を吸込む、空気吸込み側の開口部44から外側に突出するように形成されている。 Further, each blower fan 41 is provided with a boss 46 for fixing the drive shaft 53 of the fan motor 51. The boss 46 is formed of, for example, a hollow straight pipe made of aluminum. The bosses 46 are formed to partially project from the openings 44 in each multi-blade rotor 42. That is, the boss 46 is formed so as to project outside from the air intake side opening 44 that sucks in air when the multi-blade rotor 42 rotates.
 各駆動軸53および各回転軸43は、左右の送風ファン41のボス46にそれぞれ挿入されている。各駆動軸53および各回転軸43は、各ボス46に、例えば図示しないネジで固定されている。これにより、各送風ファン41の回転軸43は、各ファンモータ51の駆動軸53と連結されている。 The drive shafts 53 and the rotation shafts 43 are respectively inserted into the bosses 46 of the left and right blower fans 41. Each drive shaft 53 and each rotation shaft 43 are fixed to each boss 46 by, for example, a screw (not shown). Thus, the rotary shaft 43 of each blower fan 41 is connected to the drive shaft 53 of each fan motor 51.
 ファンモータ51の各駆動軸53は、ボス46を介して左右の送風ファン41を回転可能に支持している。2個の送風ファン41は、1個のファンモータ51で駆動されて回転する。 The drive shafts 53 of the fan motor 51 rotatably support the left and right blower fans 41 via the bosses 46. The two blower fans 41 are driven by one fan motor 51 to rotate.
 モータ本体52の左右の両端面から突出する駆動軸53の周囲には、ファンモータ51の振動の伝達を防止する防振材として、円盤状の防振ゴム54が設けられている。 A disk-shaped anti-vibration rubber 54 is provided around the drive shafts 53 protruding from both left and right end surfaces of the motor main body 52 as a vibration-proof material for preventing transmission of the vibration of the fan motor 51.

 壁体73には、モータカバー50を正面から見たときの奥行き方向に、該奥行き方向の中央部を境にして手前側の右側面の一部が縦方向に切り欠かれた第1開口部74と、奥側の左側面の一部が縦方向に切り欠かれた第2開口部75と、が設けられている。なお、モータカバー50を正面から見たときの奥行き方向とは、室内機1の前面側から背面側に向かう方向を示す。 The wall 73 has a first opening in which a part of the right side on the near side is cut in the vertical direction with the central portion in the depth direction in the depth direction when the motor cover 50 is viewed from the front. 74 and a second opening 75 in which a part of the left side surface on the back side is cut away in the vertical direction. The depth direction when the motor cover 50 is viewed from the front indicates the direction from the front side to the back side of the indoor unit 1.
 第1開口部74と第2開口部75とは、隔壁73aで分離されている。隔壁73aは、平面視で駆動軸53と一直線上に位置するように、駆動軸53に沿って開口部71cを跨いでいる。このため、第1開口部74は、隔壁73aを挟んで、第2開口部75よりも、室内機1の前面側に位置している。第2開口部75は、隔壁73aを挟んで、第1開口部74よりも、室内機1の背面側に位置している。 The first opening 74 and the second opening 75 are separated by the partition wall 73 a. The partition wall 73a straddles the opening 71c along the drive shaft 53 so as to be positioned on a straight line with the drive shaft 53 in a plan view. Therefore, the first opening 74 is located on the front side of the indoor unit 1 with respect to the second opening 75, with the partition wall 73a interposed therebetween. The second opening 75 is located on the back side of the indoor unit 1 with respect to the first opening 74 with the partition wall 73 a interposed therebetween.
 第1開口部74は、平面視で、隔壁73aを奥側の壁部として、右側面の一部が開口された枠形状(言い換えれば、溝形状)を有している。第2開口部75は、平面視で、隔壁73aを手前側の壁部として、左側面の一部が開口された枠形状(言い換えれば、溝形状)を有している。このため、壁体73は、平面視で略逆S字形状を有している。 The first opening 74 has a frame shape (in other words, a groove shape) in which a part of the right side surface is opened with the partition wall 73a as a wall portion on the back side in plan view. The second opening 75 has a frame shape (in other words, a groove shape) in which a part of the left side surface is opened with the partition wall 73a as a front wall portion in plan view. For this reason, the wall body 73 has a substantially reverse S-shape in plan view.
 図6に示すように、第1開口部74は、駆動軸53の軸方向において、駆動軸53の右側に配置された第2送風ファン41bの一方の開口部44側が開放されている。第2開口部75は、駆動軸53の軸方向において、駆動軸53の左側に配置された第1送風ファン41aの一方の開口部44側が開放されている。なお、第1開口部74および第2開口部75は、駆動軸53の軸方向において、隣り合う送風ファン41の開口部44に面していることが、より望ましい。 As shown in FIG. 6, in the first opening 74, one opening 44 side of the second blower fan 41 b disposed on the right side of the drive shaft 53 is opened in the axial direction of the drive shaft 53. In the second opening 75, one opening 44 side of the first blower fan 41a disposed on the left side of the drive shaft 53 is opened in the axial direction of the drive shaft 53. More preferably, the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 face the opening 44 of the adjacent blower fan 41 in the axial direction of the drive shaft 53.
 また、第1開口部74および第2開口部75は、縦方向において、室内機本体部2の第1吸込み口11に面して設けられている。つまり、第1開口部74および第2開口部75の上面(つまり、上側の開口端面)は、それぞれ、室内機本体部2の第1吸込み口11に面して設けられている。 Further, the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 are provided to face the first suction port 11 of the indoor unit body 2 in the vertical direction. That is, the upper surfaces (that is, the upper open end surfaces) of the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 are provided to face the first suction port 11 of the indoor unit body 2 respectively.
 第1開口部74および第2開口部75の上面である、第1吸込み口11側の開口端面は、それぞれ、空気の取込み口として機能する。また、第1開口部74および第2開口部75における、各送風ファン41の開口部44側の開口端面は、空気の取出口として機能する。 The opening end faces on the first suction port 11 side, which are the upper surfaces of the first opening 74 and the second opening 75, respectively function as air intakes. Further, the open end surfaces of the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 on the opening 44 side of the blower fans 41 function as air outlets.
 第1開口部74は、壁体73の上面(つまり、第1吸込み口11との対向面)から右側面に繋がる第1風路を形成している。言い換えれば、第1開口部74は、第1吸込み口11との対向面に空気の取入口が形成され、一方の送風ファン41の空気の吸込み口(開口部44)側に、空気の取出口が形成された第1風路を形成している。 The first opening 74 forms a first air passage connecting the upper surface of the wall 73 (that is, the surface facing the first suction port 11) to the right surface. In other words, in the first opening 74, an air intake is formed on the opposite surface to the first suction port 11, and on the air intake port (opening 44) side of the one blower fan 41, the air outlet Form a first air passage.
 また、第2開口部75は、壁体73の上面から左側面に繋がる第2風路を形成している。言い換えれば、第2開口部75は、第1吸込み口11との対向面に空気の取入口が形成され、他方の送風ファン41の空気の吸込み口(開口部44)側に、空気の取出口が形成された第2風路を形成している。 Further, the second opening 75 forms a second air passage connecting the top surface of the wall 73 to the left side surface. In other words, in the second opening 75, an air intake is formed on the surface opposite to the first suction port 11, and the air intake (opening 44) side of the other blower fan 41 is the air outlet. Form a second air passage.
 これにより、第1送風ファン41aは、隔壁73aの奥側の第2開口部75を介して第1吸い込み口11から室内機本体部2内に取り込んだ空気を吸引することが可能となる。また、第2送風ファン41bは、隔壁73aの手前側の第1開口部74を介して第1吸い込み口11から室内機本体部2内に取り込んだ空気を吸引することが可能となる。 As a result, the first blower fan 41a can suction the air taken into the indoor unit body 2 from the first suction port 11 through the second opening 75 on the back side of the partition wall 73a. Further, the second blower fan 41b can suction the air taken into the indoor unit main body 2 from the first suction port 11 through the first opening 74 on the front side of the partition wall 73a.
 送風ファン41がファンモータ51により回転すると、第1吸込み口11から第1フィルタ15を介して室内機本体部2に空気が吸い込まれる。第1吸込み口11から室内機本体部2内に空気が吸い込まれると、モータカバー50の外部およびファンケーシング47の外部が正圧となり、モータカバー50の内部およびファンケーシング47の内部が負圧となる。 When the blower fan 41 is rotated by the fan motor 51, air is sucked into the indoor unit body 2 from the first suction port 11 via the first filter 15. When air is sucked into the indoor unit body 2 from the first suction port 11, positive pressure is applied to the outside of the motor cover 50 and the external of the fan casing 47, and negative pressure is applied to the inside of the motor cover 50 and the inside of the fan casing 47. Become.
 室内機本体部2内に吸い込まれた空気の一部は、モータカバー50に設けられた第1開口部74および第2開口部75からモータカバー50内に流入し、第1開口部74内および第2開口部75内を通って、駆動軸53に平行な方向の開口部44から、送風ファン41に吸い込まれる。また、このとき、第1開口部74および第2開口部75から開口部71cを通ってモータカバー50内に流入した空気により、モータ本体52が冷却される。ファンケーシング47内に吸い込まれた空気は、送風ファン41を構成する多翼ロータ42の外周面の開口部45から吹き出される。 A part of the air sucked into the indoor unit body 2 flows into the motor cover 50 from the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 provided in the motor cover 50, and the inside of the first opening 74 The air is drawn into the blower fan 41 from the opening 44 in the direction parallel to the drive shaft 53 through the second opening 75. At this time, the motor main body 52 is cooled by the air flowing from the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 into the motor cover 50 through the opening 71 c. The air sucked into the fan casing 47 is blown out from the opening 45 of the outer peripheral surface of the multi-blade rotor 42 constituting the blower fan 41.
 また、図7の(b)および図8の(a)・(b)に示すように、モータ収容部71および壁体73における、キャビネット30の背面部32との対向面には、背面部32にモータカバー50を固定する固定部材77がそれぞれ設けられている。固定部材77は、モータカバー50を、キャビネット30の背面部32にネジ止めするための螺着部材であってもよく、爪状の掛着部材であってもよい。 Further, as shown in (b) of FIG. 7 and (a) and (b) of FIG. 8, the motor housing 71 and the wall 73 face the rear surface 32 on the surface facing the rear surface 32 of the cabinet 30. The fixing member 77 which fixes the motor cover 50 to each is provided. The fixing member 77 may be a screwing member for screwing the motor cover 50 to the back surface portion 32 of the cabinet 30, or may be a hook-like hooking member.
 なお、図7の(b)および図8の(a)・(b)では、上述したように上部モータカバー70の背面に固定部材77が設けられている場合を例に挙げて図示している。しかしながら、固定部材77は、下部モータカバー60の背面に設けられていても構わない。 7B and 8A and 8B illustrate the case where the fixing member 77 is provided on the rear surface of the upper motor cover 70 as described above. . However, the fixing member 77 may be provided on the back surface of the lower motor cover 60.
 また、図6に示すように、壁体73の上面には、モータカバー50を、キャビネット30の上面部31に固定するための固定部材78が設けられている。下部モータカバー60の下面(すなわち、モータ収容部71の下面)には、モータカバー50を、キャビネット30の下面部33に固定するための固定部材67が設けられている。なお、図7の(a)~(c)および図8の(a)~(c)では、固定部材67・77・78の図示を省略している。 Further, as shown in FIG. 6, a fixing member 78 for fixing the motor cover 50 to the upper surface portion 31 of the cabinet 30 is provided on the upper surface of the wall body 73. A fixing member 67 for fixing the motor cover 50 to the lower surface 33 of the cabinet 30 is provided on the lower surface of the lower motor cover 60 (that is, the lower surface of the motor housing 71). In FIGS. 7A to 7C and 8A to 8C, illustration of the fixing members 67, 77, and 78 is omitted.
 固定部材78は、モータカバー50を、キャビネット30の上面部31から吊り下げる吊着部材であってもよく、モータカバー50を、キャビネット30の上面部31にネジ止めするための螺着部材であってもよい。また、固定部材67は、モータカバー50を、キャビネット30の下面部33にネジ止めするための螺着部材であってもよく、モータカバー50を、キャビネット30の下面部33の一部に嵌合させる嵌着部材であってもよい。これら固定部材67・77・78の種類および数、並びに、モータカバー50とキャビネット30の固定方法は、特に限定されない。 The fixing member 78 may be a hanging member for suspending the motor cover 50 from the upper surface portion 31 of the cabinet 30, and is a screwing member for screwing the motor cover 50 to the upper surface portion 31 of the cabinet 30. May be The fixing member 67 may be a screwing member for screwing the motor cover 50 to the lower surface portion 33 of the cabinet 30, and the motor cover 50 is fitted to a part of the lower surface portion 33 of the cabinet 30. It may be a fitting member. The type and number of the fixing members 67, 77, 78 and the method of fixing the motor cover 50 and the cabinet 30 are not particularly limited.
 モータカバー50は、これら固定部材67・77・78により、上部が上記上面部31と接し、下部が上記下面部33と接し、背面(後部)が上記背面部32と接している。 The upper portion of the motor cover 50 is in contact with the upper surface portion 31, the lower portion is in contact with the lower surface portion 33, and the rear surface (rear portion) is in contact with the rear surface portion 32 by the fixing members 67, 77, 78.
 (効果)
 上記構成の空気調和機によれば、モータカバー50が上記壁体73を有していることで、ファンモータ51の上方のスペースを、送風ファン41の空気の吸い込みに利用することができる。このため、送風ファン41内に吸引する空気および該送風ファン41を介して吹出し口17から吹き出される空気の風量を増加させることができるともに、ファンモータ51の上部を有効活用することができる。モータカバー50に、第1開口部74および第2開口部75を有する上記壁体73が設けられていない場合、ファンモータ51の上方が無駄なスペースになってしまう。
(effect)
According to the air conditioner of the above configuration, the space above the fan motor 51 can be used for suction of air of the blower fan 41 by the motor cover 50 having the wall body 73. Therefore, the air volume of the air sucked into the blower fan 41 and the air blown out from the outlet 17 through the blower fan 41 can be increased, and the upper portion of the fan motor 51 can be effectively used. When the wall body 73 having the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 is not provided on the motor cover 50, the space above the fan motor 51 is a wasteful space.
 また、上記構成の空気調和機によれば、第1開口部74と第2開口部75とが隔壁73aで分離されていることで、モータカバー50の上部の第1吸込み口11から室内機本体部2に吸い込んだ空気を、第1送風ファン41aおよび第2送風ファン41bそれぞれに、均等かつ効率良く導くことができる。 Further, according to the air conditioner of the above configuration, the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 are separated by the partition wall 73a, so that the indoor unit main body from the first suction port 11 at the top of the motor cover 50. The air drawn into the part 2 can be uniformly and efficiently introduced to the first and second blower fans 41a and 41b.
 第1開口部74と第2開口部75とが隔壁73aで分離されていない場合、モータカバー50の上部の第1吸込み口11から室内機本体部2に吸い込んだ空気に対し、第1送風ファン41aと第2送風ファン41bとの両方から吸引が行われる。 When the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 are not separated by the partition wall 73a, the air drawn into the indoor unit body 2 from the first suction port 11 at the top of the motor cover 50 is a first blower fan. Suction is performed from both 41a and the 2nd ventilation fan 41b.
 この結果、第1送風ファン41aに吸引される空気と第2送風ファン41bに吸引される空気とが衝突し、それぞれの空気が、第1送風ファン41aおよび第2送風ファン41bにスムーズに吸引されない。また、衝突した空気が抵抗となるため、第1開口部74と第2開口部75とが隔壁73aで分離されている場合と比較して、同じ風量を得るための電力入力値が増大する。 As a result, the air sucked by the first blower fan 41a collides with the air sucked by the second blower fan 41b, and the respective air is not smoothly sucked by the first blower fan 41a and the second blower fan 41b. . Further, since the collided air serves as a resistance, the power input value for obtaining the same air volume is increased as compared with the case where the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 are separated by the partition wall 73a.
 また、第1送風ファン41aに吸引される空気と第2送風ファン41bに吸引される空気とが衝突することで、第1送風ファン41aに吸引される風量と第2送風ファン41bに吸引される風量とのバランスが崩れる。このように左右の送風ファン41に吸引される風量のバランスが崩れると、熱交換器14のうち、一方の送風ファン41の前面に配置された部分のみが乾き易くなる。熱交換器14には、風が均一に当たる前提で冷媒が流れている。このため、熱交換器14のうち、一方の送風ファン41の前面に配置された部分のみが早く乾くと、熱交換器14の能力が低下するとともに、乾いた部分を空気が通過することで、吹出し口17で結露が発生するおそれがある。 Further, the air sucked by the first blower fan 41a and the air sucked by the second blower fan 41b collide with each other, so that the air amount sucked by the first blower fan 41a and the air amount sucked by the second blower fan 41b The balance with the air volume is broken. As described above, when the balance of the amount of air drawn by the left and right blower fans 41 is broken, only the portion of the heat exchanger 14 disposed on the front surface of one of the blower fans 41 tends to dry. In the heat exchanger 14, the refrigerant is flowing on the premise that the wind uniformly strikes. For this reason, when only the portion of the heat exchanger 14 disposed on the front surface of one of the blower fans 41 dries quickly, the capacity of the heat exchanger 14 decreases and air passes through the dried portion, Condensation may occur at the outlet 17.
 しかしながら、上述したように第1開口部74と第2開口部75とが隔壁73aで分離されていることで、第1送風ファン41aに吸引される空気と第2送風ファン41bに吸引される空気とを分離することができる。このため、上記構成の空気調和機によれば、第1送風ファン41aおよび第2送風ファン41bのそれぞれに空気がスムーズに吸引される。したがって、送風ファン41内に吸引する空気および該送風ファン41を介して吹出し口17から吹き出される空気の風量を増加させることができる。 However, as described above, since the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 are separated by the partition wall 73a, the air sucked by the first blower fan 41a and the air sucked by the second blower fan 41b And can be separated. For this reason, according to the air conditioner of the above-mentioned configuration, air is sucked smoothly to each of the first blower fan 41a and the second blower fan 41b. Therefore, it is possible to increase the air volume of the air sucked into the blower fan 41 and the air blown out from the outlet 17 through the blower fan 41.
 また、上記構成の空気調和機によれば、上述したように、第1開口部74と第2開口部75とが隔壁73aで分離されていない場合と比較して、風量を基準としたときの電力入力値を低下させることができる。このため、第1開口部74と第2開口部75とが隔壁73aで分離されていない場合と比較して、低消費電力化を図ることができる。 Further, according to the air conditioner having the above configuration, as described above, the air volume is used as a reference, as compared with the case where the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 are not separated by the partition wall 73a. Power input values can be reduced. Therefore, power consumption can be reduced as compared with the case where the first opening 74 and the second opening 75 are not separated by the partition wall 73a.
 また、ファンモータ51の位置を基準として左右の送風ファン41の風量バランスの均一化を図ることができるので、熱交換器14の能力の低下を押さえ、熱交換器14の能力を十分に引き出すことができる。 In addition, since the air volume balance of the left and right blower fans 41 can be made uniform on the basis of the position of the fan motor 51, the reduction of the capacity of the heat exchanger 14 is suppressed, and the capacity of the heat exchanger 14 is sufficiently extracted. Can.
 また、モータカバー50に上記壁体73が設けられ、上記壁体73に、モータカバー50をキャビネット30に固定する固定部材77・78が設けられていることで、モータカバー50の強度を高め、かつ、モータカバー50とキャビネット30とを、強固に固定することができる。 The motor cover 50 is provided with the wall 73, and the wall 73 is provided with fixing members 77 and 78 for fixing the motor cover 50 to the cabinet 30, thereby enhancing the strength of the motor cover 50. And motor cover 50 and cabinet 30 can be fixed firmly.

As described above, in the present embodiment, in the wall body 73, the first opening 74 in which a part of the right side in front of the drive shaft 53 is cut away in the longitudinal direction, and the left side behind the drive shaft 53 The case where the 2nd opening part 75 which a part of field cut out in the lengthwise direction was provided was mentioned as an example, and was explained. However, the wall body 73 may be opened in different directions in the left and right directions in front of the drive shaft 53 and in rear of the drive shaft 53.
 このため、壁体73には、駆動軸53よりも前方の左側面の一部が縦方向に切り欠かれた開口部と、駆動軸53よりも後方の右側面の一部が縦方向に切り欠かれた開口部と、が設けられていてもよい。言い換えれば、壁体73には、奥行き方向に、平面視で、隔壁73aを奥側の壁部として、左側面の一部が開口された枠形状(溝形状)の開口部(切欠部)と、平面視で、隔壁73aを手前側の壁部として、右側面の一部が開口された枠形状(溝形状)の開口部(切欠部)とが設けられていてもよい。つまり、壁体73は、平面視で略S字形状を有していてもよい。 Therefore, in the wall body 73, an opening in which a part of the left side surface in front of the drive shaft 53 is cut in the vertical direction, and a part of the right side surface in the rear of the drive shaft 53 is cut in the vertical direction An integral opening may be provided. In other words, the wall 73 has a frame-shaped (groove-shaped) opening (a notch) in which a part of the left side surface is opened with the partition 73a as the back wall in plan view in the depth direction A frame-shaped (groove-shaped) opening (notch) may be provided in which a part of the right side surface is opened with the partition wall 73a as a wall on the front side in plan view. That is, the wall body 73 may have a substantially S-shape in plan view.
 また、これら第1風路を形成する開口部(例えば第1開口部74)および第2風路を形成する開口部(例えば第2開口部75)の数は、それぞれ少なくとも1つ設けられていれば、特に限定されない。 In addition, at least one opening (for example, the first opening 74) forming the first air passage and at least one opening (for example, the second opening 75) for forming the second air passage may be provided. For example, it is not particularly limited.
 つまり、壁体73には、壁体73の上面から駆動軸53の軸方向の一方の側面に繋がる第1風路を形成する開口部と、壁体73の上面から駆動軸53の軸方向の他方の側面に繋がる第2風路を形成する開口部とが、それぞれ少なくとも1つずつ設けられていればよい。 That is, in the wall 73, an opening that forms a first air passage that leads from the upper surface of the wall 73 to one side surface of the drive shaft 53 in the axial direction, and from the upper surface of the wall 73 in the axial direction of the drive shaft 53 At least one opening that forms a second air passage connected to the other side may be provided.
 (変形例2)
 また、本実施形態では、上記第1風路を形成する開口部(例えば第1開口部74)と上記第2風路を形成する開口部(例えば第2開口部75)とが、平面視で、駆動軸53に直交する方向に並んで設けられている場合を例に挙げて説明した。しかしながら、これら開口部は、駆動軸53に直交する隔壁を挟んで、駆動軸53の軸方向に並んで設けられていてもよい。例えば、壁体73は、駆動軸53に直交する隔壁73aで分離された2つの開口部を左右に有する、平面視で、I形状(言い換えれば、横向きのH形状)の壁体であってもよい。
(Modification 2)
Further, in the present embodiment, the opening (for example, the first opening 74) forming the first air passage and the opening (for example, the second opening 75) forming the second air passage are viewed in plan. The case where they are provided side by side in the direction orthogonal to the drive shaft 53 has been described as an example. However, these openings may be provided side by side in the axial direction of the drive shaft 53 with the partition wall orthogonal to the drive shaft 53 interposed therebetween. For example, the wall 73 is an I-shaped (in other words, a horizontally oriented H-shaped) wall in plan view having two openings on the left and right separated by the partition 73a orthogonal to the drive shaft 53 Good.
 (変形例3)
 また、本実施形態では、上記第1風路を形成する開口部(例えば第1開口部74)と上記第2風路を形成する開口部(例えば第2開口部75)とが、壁体73の上面(第1吸込み口11との対向面)から該壁体73の左側面または右側面にかけて溝状に切り欠かれた切欠部(言い換えれば、溝部)である場合を例に挙げて説明した。しかしながら、これら開口部は、上記形状に限定されるものではなく、例えば、壁体73の上面から該壁体73の左側面または右側面にかけてトンネル状に壁体73を貫通する貫通孔であっても構わない。
(Modification 3)

The connecting portion 62 according to the present embodiment has the same shape as the connecting portion 72 according to the first embodiment.
 したがって、例えば、上部モータカバー70は、連結部72として、例えば、モータ収容部71から水平に突出し、図示しないネジ穴を有するフリンジ部を有している。下部モータカバー60は、連結部62として、例えばネジ山に結合するネジ溝が設けられた筒状部62aを有し、モータ収容部61から水平に突出するフリンジ部を有している。但し、本実施形態はこれに限定されるものではなく、連結部62・72は、実施形態1と同じ形状を有していても構わない。 Therefore, for example, the upper motor cover 70 has, as the connecting portion 72, for example, a fringe portion that protrudes horizontally from the motor housing portion 71 and has a screw hole (not shown). The lower motor cover 60 has, as the connecting portion 62, for example, a cylindrical portion 62a provided with a screw groove coupled to a screw thread, and has a fringe portion projecting horizontally from the motor housing portion 61. However, the present embodiment is not limited to this, and the connecting portions 62 and 72 may have the same shape as the first embodiment.
 壁体63は、実施形態1にかかる壁体73と同じ形状を有している。壁体63は、モータ収容部61の下面に、駆動軸53に直交する方向に沿って、第2吸込み口12に向かって下方に突出して設けられている。 The wall 63 has the same shape as the wall 73 according to the first embodiment. The wall body 63 is provided on the lower surface of the motor housing portion 61 so as to project downward toward the second suction port 12 in a direction perpendicular to the drive shaft 53.
 壁体63は、第2吸込口12からキャビネット30内に吸い込んだ空気の流れを、隣り合う送風ファン41の一方に向う流れと他方に向う流れとに分離してそれぞれの送風ファン41に導く分離壁兼導風壁として機能する。また、壁体63は、モータカバー50とキャビネット30とを固定する固定部材として機能する。 The wall body 63 separates the flow of air sucked into the cabinet 30 from the second suction port 12 into a flow toward one of the adjacent blower fans 41 and a flow toward the other and separates the flows into the respective blower fans 41 It acts as a wall and a guiding wall. In addition, the wall body 63 functions as a fixing member for fixing the motor cover 50 and the cabinet 30.
 壁体63には、モータカバー50を正面から見たときの奥行き方向に、該奥行き方向の中央部を境にして手前側の右側面の一部が縦方向に切り欠かれた第1開口部64と、奥側の左側面の一部が縦方向に切り欠かれた第2開口部65と、が設けられている。 In the wall 63, a first opening in which a part of the right side on the near side is cut in the vertical direction with the center in the depth direction in the depth direction when the motor cover 50 is viewed from the front 64 and a second opening 65 in which a part of the left side surface on the back side is cut away in the vertical direction.
 第1開口部64と第2開口部65とは、隔壁63aで分離されている。隔壁63aは、平面視で駆動軸53と一直線上に位置するように、駆動軸53に沿って開口部61cを跨いでいる。このため、第1開口部64は、隔壁63aを挟んで、第2開口部65よりも、室内機1の前面側に位置している。第2開口部65は、隔壁63aを挟んで、第1開口部64よりも、室内機1の背面側に位置している。 The first opening 64 and the second opening 65 are separated by the partition wall 63a. The partition wall 63a straddles the opening 61c along the drive shaft 53 so as to be positioned on a straight line with the drive shaft 53 in a plan view. Therefore, the first opening 64 is located on the front side of the indoor unit 1 with respect to the second opening 65, with the partition wall 63a interposed therebetween. The second opening 65 is located on the back side of the indoor unit 1 with respect to the first opening 64 with the partition wall 63 a interposed therebetween.
 第1開口部64は、平面視で、隔壁63aを奥側の壁部として、右側面の一部が開口された枠形状(言い換えれば、溝形状)を有している。第2開口部65は、平面視で、隔壁63aを手前側の壁部として、左側面の一部が開口された枠形状(言い換えれば、溝形状)を有している。このため、壁体63は、平面視で略逆S字形状を有している。 The first opening 64 has a frame shape (in other words, a groove shape) in which a part of the right side surface is opened with the partition wall 63a as a wall portion on the back side in plan view. The second opening 65 has a frame shape (in other words, a groove shape) in which a part of the left side surface is opened with the partition wall 63a as a wall on the front side in plan view. For this reason, the wall body 63 has a substantially reverse S-shape in plan view.
 図9に示すように、第1開口部64は、駆動軸53の軸方向において、駆動軸53の右側に配置された第2送風ファン41bの一方の開口部44側が開放されている。第2開口部65は、駆動軸53の軸方向において、駆動軸53の左側に配置された第1送風ファン41aの一方の開口部44側が開放されている。なお、第1開口部64および第2開口部65は、駆動軸53の軸方向において、隣り合う送風ファン41の開口部44に面していることが、より望ましい。 As shown in FIG. 9, in the first opening 64, one opening 44 side of the second blower fan 41 b disposed on the right side of the drive shaft 53 is opened in the axial direction of the drive shaft 53. In the second opening 65, one opening 44 side of the first blower fan 41a disposed on the left side of the drive shaft 53 is opened in the axial direction of the drive shaft 53. More preferably, the first opening 64 and the second opening 65 face the opening 44 of the adjacent blower fan 41 in the axial direction of the drive shaft 53.
 また、第1開口部64および第2開口部65は、縦方向において、室内機本体部2の第2吸込み口12に面して設けられている。つまり、第1開口部64および第2開口部65の下面(つまり、下側の開口端面)は、それぞれ、室内機本体部2の第2吸込み口12に面して設けられている。 The first opening 64 and the second opening 65 are provided to face the second suction port 12 of the indoor unit body 2 in the vertical direction. That is, the lower surfaces (that is, lower open end surfaces) of the first opening 64 and the second opening 65 are provided so as to face the second suction port 12 of the indoor unit body 2 respectively.
 第1開口部64および第2開口部65の下面である、第2吸込み口12側の開口端面は、それぞれ、空気の取込み口として機能する。また、第1開口部64および第2開口部65における、各送風ファン41の開口部44側の開口端面は、空気の取出口として機能する。 The open end surfaces on the second suction port 12 side, which are the lower surfaces of the first opening 64 and the second opening 65, respectively function as air intake ports. Further, the open end surfaces of the first opening 64 and the second opening 65 on the opening 44 side of the blower fans 41 function as air outlets.
 第1開口部64は、壁体63の下面(つまり、第2吸込み口12との対向面)から右側面に繋がる第1風路を形成している。言い換えれば、第1開口部64は、第2吸込み口12との対向面に空気の取入口が形成され、一方の送風ファン41の空気の吸込み口(開口部44)側に、空気の取出口が形成された第1風路を形成している。 The first opening 64 forms a first air passage connecting the lower surface of the wall 63 (that is, the surface facing the second suction port 12) to the right side. In other words, in the first opening 64, an air intake is formed on the opposite surface to the second suction opening 12, and the air extraction opening on the air intake (opening 44) side of the one blower fan 41 Form a first air passage.
 また、第2開口部65は、壁体63の下面から左側面に繋がる第2風路を形成している。言い換えれば、第2開口部65は、第2吸込み口12との対向面に空気の取入口が形成され、他方の送風ファン41の空気の吸込み口(開口部44)側に、空気の取出口が形成された第2風路を形成している。 In addition, the second opening 65 forms a second air passage connecting the lower surface of the wall body 63 to the left side surface. In other words, in the second opening 65, an air intake is formed on the opposite surface to the second suction port 12, and the air outlet is formed on the air intake (opening 44) side of the other blower fan 41. Form a second air passage.
 これにより、第1送風ファン41aは、隔壁63aの奥側の第2開口部65を介して第2吸い込み口12から室内機本体部2内に取り込んだ空気を吸引することが可能となる。また、第2送風ファン41bは、隔壁63aの手前側の第1開口部64を介して第2吸い込み口12から室内機本体部2内に取り込んだ空気を吸引することが可能となる。 As a result, the first blower fan 41a can suction the air taken into the indoor unit body 2 from the second suction port 12 through the second opening 65 on the back side of the partition wall 63a. Further, the second blower fan 41b can suction the air taken into the indoor unit main body 2 from the second suction port 12 through the first opening 64 on the front side of the partition wall 63a.
 送風ファン41がファンモータ51により回転すると、第2吸込み口12から第2フィルタ16を介して室内機本体部2に空気が吸い込まれる。第2吸込み口12から室内機本体部2内に空気が吸い込まれると、モータカバー50の外部およびファンケーシング47の外部が正圧となり、モータカバー50の内部およびファンケーシング47の内部が負圧となる。 When the blower fan 41 is rotated by the fan motor 51, air is sucked into the indoor unit body 2 from the second suction port 12 via the second filter 16. When air is sucked into the indoor unit body 2 from the second suction port 12, positive pressure is applied to the outside of the motor cover 50 and the external of the fan casing 47, and negative pressure is applied to the inside of the motor cover 50 and the inside of the fan casing 47.
