|20090095726||Control Circuit for Fast Heating of a Positive-Temperature-Coefficient Heating Component - Traditional temperature-control products have the problem that the temperature of the working surface reaches the setting temperature too slowly when heating up or recovering from a temperature drop. A traditional temperature control circuit and temperature-settings selector components are modified to solve this problem. When heating begins, the modified circuit increases the initial setting temperature to be above the target setting temperature. The modified circuit then adjusts the setting temperature by measuring the heating power consumption. Once the working surface of the temperature control product reaches the initial setting temperature, the heating power consumption drops and the modified circuit reduces the temperature setting to the target setting temperature. The temperature control product can rapidly achieve the target temperature. A positive-temperature-coefficient heating component is used in the temperature control product.||04-16-2009|
|20090015316||Heating-Control Isolation-Diode Temperature-Compensation - A semiconductor integrated circuit (IC) acts as a controller of a heating-controlled device or appliance. A heating body has a positive temperature coefficient and acts as both a heating element and a temperature sensor. A Silicon-Controlled Rectifier (SCR) switches AC current to the heating body to increase its temperature. When the SCR switches off, temperature sensing is performed using a sampling resistor, isolation diode, voltage comparator, and switch for a low-voltage DC supply are formed on an integrated circuit that has a first circuit branch and a second circuit branch. A compensation diode and a compensation resistor can be added in parallel to reference resistors. The compensation diode compensates for the forward voltage drop of the isolation diode that would otherwise create an inaccurate temperature measurement. The diodes have the same temperature response, allowing for a more accurate temperature measurement over a full temperature range of the sensorless appliance.||01-15-2009|
