The latest generation of Porsche 911 Cabriolet It integrates an improved air conditioning system that offers the perfect climate both for driving with the hood open and with the hood closed.
When the Cabriolet circulates with the hood closed, the temperature sensor is the central element of the air conditioning system through which the temperature is regulated, but when it travels with the hood open, other additional factors intervene.
With the new regulation system, when the hood is opened, the sensor is gradually deactivated. After the above, the system processes 350 signals every half a second. Those signals are coordinated with 20 other internal and external sensors.
These sensors obtain different registers, including the exterior temperature, that of the air conditioner, that of the engine coolant, circulation speed and even the engine rpm.
Hood, door, seat and engine controls also provide information relevant to the climate control unit.
All this information from the sensors and signals allow the optimal air temperature, the outflow and the distribution to be calculated continuously for the interior that is currently without a hood.
Of course, when the climate control system is most noticeable is when the Porsche 911 Cabriolet runs at low speed.
According to german firmEven in the sweltering summer heat, with the hood down the driver gets a pleasant cool.
When it is in winter and as it says well PorscheThis new system does not follow the “hot feet, cold head” formula, on the contrary, distributing the warmer air through the central air outlet windows, both for the driver and the passenger, although without the air Paste directly on the face of both. The steering wheel also helps as it is heated.
Now in autumn and spring, with the hood open, the system reacts to the first cloud that covers the sun, regulating the temperature, without the driver having to do anything.
