Title
(DE) ELEKTRISCHE SCHALTVORRICHTUNG MIT EINER, EINE NICHTGALVANISCH GEKOPPELTE ANZEIGE ENTHALTENDEN AUSLÖSETASTE.
(EN) ELECTRIC SWITCH DEVICE WITH AN ACTUATOR KEY COMPRISING A NON-GALVANICALLY COUPLED INDICATOR DISPLAY.
(FR) COMMUTATEUR ELECTRIQUE POURVU D'UNE TOUCHE D'ACTIONNEMENT COMPRENANT UN AFFICHAGE INDICATEUR COUPLE DE MANIERE NON GALVANIQUE.
Abstract
(EN) An electric switch device having a fixed base body (10) and an actuator key (7) that is arranged movably relative to said base body (10). A non-galvanically coupled indicator display (1) is arranged within the actuator key (7). Within the base body (10) a radiation source (4), preferably a light emitting diode (18) is provided for, which is actuated by coded pulses, and is coupled non-galvanically with a means (3) for converting radiation into electric signals, preferably with a photocell (19) that is arranged within the actuator key (7). Output voltage generated by said photocell (19) is applied both to a rectifier and to a processor unit (2) that are both arranged within the actuator key (7). The indicator display (1), preferably liquid crystal display (LCD) is activated by the processor unit (2) while the rectifier provides supply voltage both for the processor unit (2) and for the indicator display (1). Thus, the actuator key (7) is merely non-galvanically coupled with the fixed base body (10) and a large variety of symbols such as geometric patterns, characters and the like according to coded pulses imposed may be visually displayed by using one and the same indicator display (1).
(FR) Commutateur électrique possédant un corps de base fixe (10) et une touche d'actionnement (7) mobile par rapport au corps de base (10). Un affichage indicateur couplé de manière non galvanique (1) et logé à l'intérieur de la touche d'actionnement (7). A l'intérieur du corps de base (10) est disposée une source de radiation (4), de préférence une diode électroluminescente (18), qui est actionnée par des impulsions codées, et est couplée de manière non galvanique à un organe (3) servant à convertir la radiation en signaux électriques, de préférence à une cellule photoélectrique (19) logée à l'intérieur de la touche d'actionnement (7). La tension de sortie produite par la cellule photoélectrique (19) est appliquée à un redresseur et à une unité de traitement (2) qui sont également logés à l'intérieur de la touche d'actionnement (7). L'affichage indicateur (1), de préférence un affichage à cristaux liquides (LCD) est activé par l'unité de traitement (2) tandis que le redresseur délivre une tension d'alimentation aussi bien pour l'unité de traitement (2) que pour l'affichage indicateur (1). Ainsi la touche d'actionnement (7) est couplée uniquement de manière non galvanique au corps de base fixe (10) et une grande variété de symboles tels que des motifs géométriques, des caractères et autres selon les impulsions codées imposées peuvent être affichés visuellement en utilisant un seul et même affichage indicateur (1).
