Description

Field of the Invention

When users need to control vent valve for venting, they can only directly toggle vent valve for venting or press the vent button designed in the cooker lid portion for venting. Since the operation is performed close to the vent valve, users' hands are easily scalded by steam when carrying out venting operations.

[0022] In the present solution, the first cylindrical coil cooperates with the second cylindrical coil for wireless power supply. The two cylindrical coils have different inner diameters. When the cooker lid is screwed into place, the small cylindrical coil is inserted into the large cylindrical coil, and when venting is necessary, the first cylindrical coil is connected to the power supply device, and the power supply device supplies an alternating current to the cylindrical coil connected thereto, which causes the cylindrical coil to generate a changing magnetic field, and the cylindrical coil connected to the motor driving device is induced by the changing magnetic field to generate an induced current, and the induced current is transmitted to the motor driving device, such that the motor driving device opens the mechanical vent valve for venting.

[0024] In the present solution, an electromagnetic drive device comprises a DC motor and a first control plate, the first cylindrical coil is affected by the alternating current to generate a changing magnetic field, and the second cylindrical coil is affected by the changing magnetic field to generate AC induced current. To this end, in the present solution, a rectifying device is provided between the first control plate and the second cylindrical coil, and the rectifying device converts the AC induced current into direct current and then supplies it to the first control plate, so that the first control plate may supply the direct current to the DC motor.

[0026] In the present solution, a power socket and a power plug are respectively disposed on the cooker body and the cooker lid. After the cooker lid is screwed into place, the power plug cooperates with the power socket to achieve electric connection, thereby realizing current and electric signal transmission between the cooker body and the cooker lid.

[0028] In the present solution, an electromagnetic drive device comprises a DC motor and a first control plate, and the power supply device transmits an alternating current. For this purpose, in the present solution, a rectifying device is provided between the power supply device and the first control plate. Specifically, the rectifying device may be connected to the power supply device, or may be connected to the first control plate, and the rectifying device converts the alternating current into direct current for use by the DC motor.

[0029] In any one of the foregoing technical solutions, optionally, the split-type electric pressure cooker further comprises a venting switch and a controller mounted on the cooker body. The controller is electrically connected with the power supply device, the venting switch and the power transmitting device, and the venting switch is configured to send a trigger signal to the controller, so that the controller transmits power to the power transmitting device according to the trigger signal.

[0030] When venting, users trigger the venting switch, such that the venting switch sends a trigger signal for starting venting to the controller, to trigger the internal corresponding program of the controller, and the controller transmits a current and valve-opening electric signal to the power transmitting device, and then the power transmitting device and the power receiving device transmit the current and valve-opening electric signal to the first control plate. After receiving the valve-opening electric signal, the first control plate transmits a direct current to the DC motor, such that the transmission gear mounted on the motor shaft rotates forwardly with the motor shaft, and the transmission assembly lifts the valve cover, thereby opening the mechanical vent valve for venting. The DC motor is rotated forwardly to open the mechanical vent valve, and the controller or the first control plate stops the power supply after the first control plate is powered by the DC motor for a preset period according to its preset procedure, so that the DC motor is powered off and stopped to rotate, to maintain the transmission assembly in the current position and thus maintain the valve cover in the current position, and maintain the mechanical vent valve in an open state for continuous venting. At the end of venting, a user sends a trigger signal of ending venting to the controller through the venting switch to trigger a corresponding internal control program, so that the controller transmits a current and valve-closing signal to the power transmitting device, and the power transmitting device and the power receiving device transmit the current and valve-closing signal to the first control plate. After receiving the valve-opening electric signal, the first control plate supplies power to the DC motor reversely, so that the DC motor reverses and the transmission gear reversely rotates with the motor shaft, and the transmission assembly is reset. Then the valve cover is dropped and reset to close the mechanical vent valve, and the controller or the first control plate stops the power supply after the first control plate is reversely powered by the DC motor for a preset period of time according to its preset procedure, so that the DC motor is powered off and stopped to rotate, to maintain the transmission assembly in the current position and thus maintain the valve cover in the current position, and maintain the mechanical vent valve in a closed state.

[0031] Wherein, the venting switch is mounted on the cooker body away from the mechanical vent valve to ensure that user's hands are kept away from the mechanical vent valve when a user pushes the venting switch, thereby preventing the user from being scalded by the discharged steam.

[0032] In the foregoing technical solution, preferably, the controller or the first control plate is further configured to control a position of the valve cover by controlling the power supply duration of the DC motor, so as to control an opening degree of the mechanical vent valve.

[0033] In the present technical solution, the venting switch has a plurality of venting gear positions available. When a user selects different venting gear positions, the venting switch sends different trigger signals to the controller. Different trigger signals trigger different programs of the controller, to control the duration of the power supply by the controller to the first control plate, or allow the controller to transmit different valve-opening signals to the first control plate, thereby controlling the power supply duration of the first control plate to the DC motor, to control the lifting height of the DC motor to the valve cover, that is, the opening degree of the mechanical vent valve, so as to adjust the venting velocity of the product.

[0034] In any one of the foregoing technical solutions, preferably, the power transmitting device further comprises a second control plate, and the second control plate is disposed adjacent to the first flat coil or the first cylindrical coil in the power transmitting device, and the second control plate is electrically connected to the first flat coil or the first cylindrical coil and the controller.

[0035] When a coil wireless power supply transmission mode is employed between the cooker body and the cooker lid, if the power supply distance between the power supply device and the coil of the power transmitting device is far, the current transmission between the power supply device and the coil has poor effect, which leads to a poor effect of induced magnetic field produced by the coil, and the poor effect directly causes a weak induced current generated from the coils in the power receiving device, which cannot meet the design standard. The driving motor works, finally the venting effect of the product is not ideal. In order to solve the foregoing problem, in the present solution, a second control plate is added in the power transmitting device, and the second control plate is connected to the power supply device and is mounted close to the coil in the power transmitting device. When venting, the power supply device is connected to the second control plate to supply power to the second control plate. The second control plate supplies current to the coil in the power transmitting device, thereby shortening the power supply distance to the coil and improving the current transmission effect. Additional aspects and advantages of the present invention will become apparent in the following description, or can be understood in the practice of the present invention.

The first PCB control panel 222 receives the alternating current for alignment and processing, so that the first PCB control panel 222 transmits direct current to the DC motor 231 according to a preset procedure, and the transmission gear 232 mounted on the motor shaft rotates forward with the motor shaft, and the rotating rod 233 rotates under the driving of the transmission gear 232, such that the second end of the rotating rod 233 lifts the valve cover 212, thereby opening the mechanical vent valve 21 for venting. In addition, the main control panel or the first control plate stops the power supply after the first control plate supplies power to the DC motor 231 for a preset period of time according to its own preset procedure, so that the DC motor 231 is powered off and stopped rotating, to maintain the rotating rod 233 in the current position and thus maintain the valve cover 212 in the current position, and maintain the mechanical vent valve 21 in an open state for continuous venting. At the end of venting, a user sends a trigger signal of finishing venting to the main control panel through the venting switch, to trigger a corresponding internal control program, so that the main control panel controls the second PCB control panel 122 to transmit current and valve-closing signals to the first flat coil 121, the changing current makes the first flat coil 121 to generate a changing magnetic field, and the second flat coil 221 generates an alternating induced current affected by the changing magnetic field.

In addition, the main control panel or the first control plate stops the power supply after the first control plate supplies power to the DC motor 231 reversely for a preset period of time according to its own preset procedure, so that the DC motor 231 is powered off and stopped rotating, to maintain the rack 234 and the rotating rod 233 in the current position and maintain the valve cover 212 in the current position, and to maintain the mechanical vent valve 21 in a closed state. Wherein, the venting switch is mounted on the cooker body 1 away from the mechanical vent valve 21 to ensure that user's hands are kept away from the mechanical vent valve 21 when a user pushes the venting switch, thereby preventing the user from being scalded by the discharged steam.

[0045] In the foregoing embodiment, the lifting height of the valve cover 212 by the rotating rod 233 is controlled by the rotation angle of the rotating rod 233. Therefore, preferably, the venting switch has a plurality of venting gear positions, and when the user selects different venting gear positions, the venting switch sends different trigger signal to the main control panel, and different trigger signals trigger different programs of the main control panel to control the power supply duration of the main control panel to the first PCB control panel 222, or allow the main control panel to transmit different valve-opening signals to the first PCB control panel 222, thereby controlling the power supply duration of the first PCB control panel 222 to the DC motor 231, to control the rotation angle of the rotating rod 233 and control the lifting height of the valve cover 212 by the rotating rod 233, that is, the opening degree of the mechanical vent valve 21, so as to adjust the venting velocity of the product.

[0046] On the basis of this, in the present embodiment, the wireless power supply transmission mode by cooperation of the first flat coil 121 with the second flat coil 221 may be replaced with the wireless power supply transmission mode by cooperation of the first cylindrical coil and the second cylindrical coil. The technical solution is as follows: the first cylindrical coil is electrically connected to the second PCB control panel 122, and the second cylindrical coil is electrically connected to the first PCB control panel 222. The inner diameters of the two cylindrical coils are different. After the cooker lid 2 is screwed into place, the small cylindrical coil is inserted into the large cylindrical coil to achieve the transmission of current and electrical signals through an electromagnetic induction way.

[0047] In the present embodiment, the wireless power supply transmission mode by cooperation of the first flat coil 121 with the second flat coil 221 may be replaced with the insertion transmission mode by cooperation of the power plug and the power socket. In the present solution, the transmission of current and electrical signals is realized by electrical connection of the power plug and power socket, rather than an electromagnetic induction way. Therefore, it is not necessary to consider the effect of the power supply distance on the induced magnetic field strength, and the second PCB control panel 122 may be omitted.
