Title
(DE) VORRICHTUNG ZUM VERHINDERN VON UNBEFUGTEM GEBRAUCH VON DATENTRÄGERN.
(EN) DEVICE FOR PREVENTING UNAUTHORISED USE OF DATA CARRIERS.
(FR) DISPOSITIF DESTINE A EMPECHER L'USAGE NON AUTORISE DE SUPPORTS DE DONNEES.
Abstract
(EN)
Device for preventing unauthorised use of data carriers, such as disc storages, magnetic tape reels or cassettes etc., comprising a cover- or case-shaped device (1) or the like having at least one compartment or the like adapted to receive at least one data carrier, actuators arranged in said compartment and control means (4) adapted to control said actuators, said control means preferably being code-activatable. The novelty of the invention resides in that said actuators comprise means (6) which are activatable when an attempt at gaining access is made without proper actuation of said control means and which, in the event of such an attempt at unauthorised access, are adapted to permanently damage the data carrier etc. and/or the data carried thereon.

(FR)
Un dispositif destiné à empêcher l'usage non autorisé de supports de données, tels que des enregistrements sur disque, des bobines ou des cassettes de bandes magnétiques, etc, comprend un dispositif (1) en forme de couvercle ou d'étui, qui comprend au moins un compartiment destiné à recevoir au moins un support de données, des actuateurs placés dans ledit compartiment et des organes de commande (4) commandant lesdits actuateurs, lesdits organes de commande répondant de préférence à un actionnement par code. L'originalité de la présente invention réside dans le fait que lesdits actuateurs comprennent des moyens (6) qui peuvent être actionnés lorsqu'une tentative est faite d'accéder aux données sans qu'il y ait actionnement correct desdits organes de commande, et qui, dans le cas d'une telle tentative sans autorisation, sont conçus de manière à endommager en permanence le support de données et/ou les données qu'il contient.
