Hyundai develops air conditioning technologies for cleaner in-car air
New Delhi: Hyundai Motor Group on Monday has announced that it has developed three technologies to manage the air quality in a vehicle.
These three technologies are After Blow, Multi-Air Mode and Fine Dust Indicator, as the automaker claims. The ‘After Blow’ keeps evaporator dry to suppress mould growth, ‘Multi-Air Mode’ disperses air to reduce direct air contact, while the ‘Fine Dust Indicator’ displays air quality information in real-time.
As Hyundai says these technologies will be introduced on upcoming new cars from the brand. Also, these technologies will be available across the cars from Kia and Genesis brands as well, claimed Hyundai in a release.
As Hyundai says, the After-Blow technology dries the condensate on the evaporator and suppresses mould growth in the air-conditioning system. After the engine is turned off and the condensate on the evaporator drains naturally for about 30 minutes, ‘After-Blow’ activates for 10 minutes to dry the evaporator and any condensate leftover in the air passage. With this, the air-conditioning system automatically allows influx of outside air during this time to prevent humidity from building up.
It uses an intelligent battery sensor (IBS) to monitor the battery and stops functioning when the battery is low, allaying any concerns about battery discharge.
The Multi-Air Mode technology uses multiple vents for air conditioning and heating to create a more pleasant indoor environment with gentle wind. With this mode is activated, the air is dispersed to the newly added multi-air slots in the driver and passenger seats in addition to the normal air vents.
The Fine Dust Indicator technology measures the air inside the vehicle in real-time and delivers digitized information, allowing the driver to better manage the air quality.
