Smart Range Hood Drive System Comparison

The smart range hood is a household appliance product by integrating microprocessor, sensor technology, and network communication technology into household appliances. It adopts automatic control technology of modern industrial, Internet technology and multimedia technology, which can automatically perceive the state of the working environment and the state of the product itself and can automatically control the range hood and receive users’ control commands in the house or remotely. A more intelligent range hood, as a component of smart home appliances, can be interconnected with other home appliances, household appliances and facilities in the house to form a system to realize smart home functions. ZHAOWEI intelligent range hood drive system mainly includes gear motor for intelligent flip range hood system and gear motor for intelligent lifting range hood system. The automatic flip range hood motor is mainly used to solve the automatic flipping of the range hood panel in multiple angles, shorten the flip time and improve the torque and service life.

The automatic flipping system for the range hood features:

* It adopts the design idea and scheme of the planetary gearbox, which has good noise reduction performance.

* It adopts a combination of planetary gearbox and worm gear, which enables to flip the panel easily.


The Lifting Drive System for Range Hood

With the layout of smart homes and scenes, kitchen and bathroom appliances are becoming more and more intelligent. Many home decoration styles tend to integrate kitchens and halls. The big problem with open kitchens is fumes everywhere. Consumers’ needs towards the kitchen are becoming more and more diverse. ZHAOWEI uses a miniature lifting drive system to prevent the fumes from escaping everywhere and avoid the pollution of the indoor and outdoor environments. Most range hoods on the market use the technology of large air volume and strong air pressure to achieve the suction power of the range hood and the oil pollution purification. But there are still some drawbacks, such as increased noise along with the large air volume.

Through the analysis of the internal structure of the range hood, we realize that the side suction of the range hood will cause troublesome cleaning and loud noise. To solve the problem of fume escaping, ZHAOWEI designs the intelligent lifting drive system for the range hood. The lifting drive system automatically senses the amount of fumes through the fumes sensor and realizes the intelligent upward and downward movements of the range hood through the forward and reverse rotation of the screw. The corresponding part for fume extraction is closer to the source of the fumes, which can lock the fumes and shorten the rising distance of the fumes, making it possible for ideal smoke venting.


The intelligence of a single product is the initial stage of the smart home. The coordinated linkage between products can create a better user experience. In this regard, ZHAOWEI R&D center of gear motor for smart kitchen and bathroom appliance expands the exploration field of kitchen and bathroom products. ZHAOWEI has developed and designed corresponding products for cooking appliances, dishwashers, kitchen appliances, water purification systems, cabinets, water heaters, etc. The transmission gear drive system truly realizes the broader layout of the smart kitchen and promotes the smart kitchen strategy.
