Title (EN) COMBINED STEAM CLEANER AND STEAM IRON APPARATUS AND CIRCUIT
(FR) APPAREIL MIXTE À USAGE DE NETTOYEUR À VAPEUR ET DE FER À VAPEUR ET CIRCUIT
Abstract:
(EN) A combination steam cleaner and steam iron includes a steam generator, a steam cleaner and a steam iron. The steam generator includes an voltage control device serially connected to a boiler element for boiling water to produce steam. The steam cleaner is attachable to the steam generator to receive the steam, a nozzle that dispenses the steam, and a circuit designed to supply power to the boiler element when the steam cleaner is attached to the steam generator. The steam iron is attachable to the steam generator, includes an iron heating element for heating the iron, and includes a circuit designed to supply power to the iron heating element in addition to supplying power to the boiler element, when the steam iron is attached to the steam generator. The steam generator also includes a steam release valve that supplies the steam and which is controlled by respective switches within the steam cleaner and steam iron. Connections between the steam generator and the steam cleaner and the steam iron are limited to four electrical contacts and the supply of steam.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil mixte à usage de nettoyeur à vapeur et de fer à vapeur comprenant un générateur de vapeur, un nettoyeur à vapeur et un fer à vapeur. Le générateur de vapeur comprend un dispositif de régulation de tension connecté en série à un élément de chaudière qui fait bouillir de l’eau pour produire de la vapeur. Le nettoyeur à vapeur peut être fixé audit générateur pour recevoir la vapeur, et comprend une buse qui la distribue et un circuit conçu pour alimenter l’élément de chaudière lorsque le nettoyeur est fixé au générateur. Le fer à vapeur peut être fixé au générateur, et comprend un élément de chauffage de fer qui chauffe le fer et un circuit conçu pour alimenter l’élément de chauffage ainsi que l’élément de chaudière lorsque le fer est fixé au générateur. Le générateur de vapeur comprend également une valve de libération de vapeur qui fournit la vapeur et est commandée par des interrupteurs respectifs sur le nettoyeur et le fer. Le raccordement entre le générateur de vapeur et le nettoyeur à vapeur ainsi que le fer à vapeur se limite à quatre contacts électriques et le conduit de vapeur.
