Screen wipers and stekloomyvatel


0 Starting position (screen wipers do not work).

1 Work of screen wipers in interval the intensity mode / sensor дождя*.

2 Work of screen wipers with normal rate.

3 Work of screen wipers with the increased frequency.

4 Single inclusion of screen wipers.

5 Work of stekloomyvatel in an automatic mode.

6 Regulator of an interval of inclusion of screen wipers at work in interval mode / sensitivity of the sensor of intensity of a rain.

1 Interval mode or intensity sensor дождя*

Interval mode

The interval between inclusions can be regulated in steps by the corrugated castor 6 having four situation. In addition the interval of inclusion is automatically regulated depending on the actual speed of movement.

Sensor of intensity of a rain

The sensor allows to regulate automatically frequency of work of screen wipers depending on intensity of a rain or snowfall. It means that at the switched-on sensor you should not care of inclusion any more both switching off of screen wipers and switching from one mode of their work on another. You can concentrate the attention to the road completely. It is especially important under bad weather conditions and promotes bigger traffic safety and increase of convenience of driving.

If screen wipers are included on an interval operating mode, they react at once, if, for example, on a windscreen of your car water from under wheels ahead of the going car got.

The infra-red radiator directs through optical system light on a windscreen surface in such a manner that at dry glass this light is reflected completely. The sensor measures intensity of reflected light.

If glass is covered with water drops, extent of reflection decreases, as infra-red light partially passes through glass. Intensity of reflected light allows to define extent of moistening of a windscreen.

Turning on of the sensor

After ignition key turn in situation 1 or 2 transfer the lever switch to situation 1. There will be a single operation of screen wipers.

You can leave for a long time the lever switch in situation 1, and then to you will be enough after ignition key turn in situation 1
to turn on the sensor of intensity of a rain. For this purpose:

- turn corrugated a castor 6 or
- involve an automatic operating mode of stekloomyvatel.

The corrugated castor 6 will allow you to regulate sensitivity of the sensor according to your wishes.

At journey of jet washers disconnect the sensor as inadvertent operation of screen wipers can lead to their breakage.

2 Work of screen wipers with normal rate

At a stop of the car there is an automatic switching on an interval operating mode (it does not belong to cars with the sensor of intensity of a rain).

3 Work of screen wipers with the increased frequency

At a car stop screen wipers work with normal rate (it does not belong to cars with the sensor of intensity of a rain).

5 Work of stekloomyvatel in an automatic mode

Spraying of a windscreen by washing liquid is accompanied by short-term inclusion of screen wipers.

Short-term impact on the lever switch washing liquid moves on a windscreen, but screen wipers do not join.

Washers фар*

If devices of illumination of the car are switched on, at every fifth operation of washers of a windscreen in an automatic mode there is an automatic washing of headlights.

In order to avoid deterioration of visibility it is necessary to use washers only if freezing of washing liquid on a windscreen is excluded.
Use special nonfreezing liquid.

In order to avoid damage of the pump of stekloomyvatel it cannot be included in the absence of liquid in the tank.

Nozzles of stekloomyvatel

Heating is carried out automatically * if the ignition key is thus in situation 2.
