Title (EN) QUANTITY CONVERTING AND INDICATING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE CONVERSION ET D"INDICATION DE MESURES
Abstract:
(EN) A quantity converting and indicating apparatus for use in automatic remote systems for inspecting consumed amounts of gas, city water, electric power or the like, by which a detected value in the decimal system displayed on such a counter as a gas meter is converted to a binary system value convenient for transmission by a channel such as a telephone circuit. The apparatus is provided with plural cans (2) cooperative with a figure wheel (4) of the counter for converting the detected value to the binary system value, plural vibrators (6a) placed facing each cam and fixed each at one end, flexible vibrator controlling members (5) placed adjacent to the concaves and convexes (2a, 2b) of each cam and facing the respective vibrators at their other ends for controlling the vibrators, means (10) for activating the vibrators, and means (7, 8) for converting the vibration to an A.C. signal having a frequency in a band adopted for transmission by means such as a telephone circuit.
(FR) Un appareil d"indication et de conversion de mesures utilisable dans les systemes automatiques pour relever a distance les quantites consommees de gaz, d"eau, d"electricite ou autres, avec lequel une valeur detectee dans le systeme decimal et affichee sur un compteur tel qu"un compteur a gaz est convertie en une valeur du systeme binaire adaptee a un moyen de transmission tel que le reseau de telephone. L"appareil possede une pluralite de cames (2) qui cooperent avec une roue a chiffres (4) du compteur pour convenir la valeur detectee en une valeur du systeme binaire, une pluralite de vibrateurs (6a) places en face de chaque came et fixes a chaque extremite, des organes flexibles de commande des vibrateurs (5) adjacents aux parties concaves et convexes (2a, 2b) de chaque came et vis-a-vis des vibrateurs respectivement a leurs autres extremites pour commander les vibrateurs, des moyens (10) pour activer les vibrateurs, et des moyens (7, 8) pour convertir la vibration en un signal a courant alternatif ayant une bande de frequence convenant a la transmission par des moyens tels que le reseau telephonique.
