Abstract
(EN)
A control panel used in combination with a power unit to control the operation of a sauna. The control panel is equipped with a microprocessor that has software and proper circuitry to allow a user to use buttons to input information into the control panel regarding the time, temperature, and day on which heating within the sauna is to occur. Additionally, the power unit has a microprocessor with a pulse width modulation output that causes individual heating elements to continuously produce varying intensities of heat in order to maintain a consistent desired temperature, and/or intermittently radiate heat creating a wave of heat to be emitted by each individual heating element.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un tableau de contrôle fonctionnant en coordination avec une unité de puissance pour contrôler le fonctionnement d'un sauna. Le tableau de contrôle est équipé d'un microprocesseur possédant le logiciel et les circuits adéquats permettant à l'utilisateur d'utiliser des boutons pour entrer les informations dans le tableau de contrôle concernant la durée, la température, et le jour pendant lequel le chauffage du sauna s'effectuera. De plus, l'unité de puissance comporte un microprocesseur fournissant des signaux de sortie à modulation de largeur d'impulsion qui fait que les éléments individuels de chauffage produisent des intensités de chauffage variables en continu afin de maintenir constante la température désirée, et/ou, de manière intermittente, d'émettre de la chaleur, créant ainsi une onde de chaleur émise par chacun des éléments individuels de chauffage.
