Development of Continuous Running, Externally Controlled Variable Displacement Compressor 1999-01-0876
The world's first continuous running, externally controlled, variable displacement compressor for automotive applications has been developed(6SE12 with DL-Pulley).
This compressor design is based on a conventional swash plate internally controlled variable displacement compressor and has an integrated solenoid valve which controls displacement compressor by receiving an external electrical signal. It enables the development of a power saving system running at optimum conditions.
The compressor was developed as a continuos running type by improving the component parts from a reliability standpoint. As a result, a new DL-pulley(Damping & Limiting) could be developed which has a more simple structure than conventional magnetic clutches.
Therefore, the 6SE12 with DL-Pulley can reduce vehicle fuel consumption and improve the ease of installation into the engine compartment.
