Title
(EN) AUTOMATICALLY CONTROLLED SYSTEM FOR MAINTAINING A SWIMMING POOL
(FR) SYSTEME A COMMANDE AUTOMATIQUE DESTINE A L'ENTRETIEN DES PISCINES
Abstract
(EN)
This invention relates to an electronically controlled system for maintaining a swimming pool. The system includes regulating means for regulating the flow of water through selected conduits of a filtration system associated with the swimming pool. The regulating means includes rotatable selector means (32) arranged in association with a valve housing (11) having a number of inlet and outlet ports; biasing means (37) for biasing the selector means (32) into a seated position in the valve housing (11); and motorized means (39) operatively associated with the selector means (32) and adapted to rotate the selector means while it is in the seated position in the valve housing (11). The system further includes control means (50) for automatically controlling the regulating means in a predetermined manner wherein the control means includes a microprocessor. In addition, the system includes at least one sensor means for sensing at least one adjustable variable of the swimming pool water, the sensor means being connected to the control means (50), and adjustment means for adjusting such variable in response to a signal relayed from the sensor means to the control means (50).

L'invention se rapporte à un système à commande automatique destiné à l'entretien des piscines. Ce système comporte un organe de régulation conçu pour réguler le flux d'eau parcourant des conduits sélectionnés d'un système de filtration associé à une piscine. Ledit organe de régulation comporte un sélecteur rotatif (32) disposé en association à un logement de soupape (11) présentant un certain nombre d'orifices d'entrée et de sortie; un organe de sollicitation (37) conçu pour solliciter ledit sélecteur (32) et l'amener en position assise dans le logement de soupape (11); et un organe motorisé (39) associé fonctionnellement audit sélecteur (32) et conçu pour faire tourner le sélecteur alors que celui-ci se trouve en position assise dans le logement de soupape (11). Ledit système comporte également un organe de commande (50) qui comporte un microprocesseur et permet de commander automatiquement l'organe de régulation de manière préétablie. En outre, le système comporte au moins un capteur relié à l'organe de commande (50) et conçu pour détecter au moins une variable ajustable de l'eau de la piscine, et un organe de réglage conçu pour ajuster une telle variable en réponse à un signal transféré dudit capteur vers l'organe de commande (50).
