Title (EN) PROCESS FOR RELEASIBLY CONNECTING ELECTRIC LIGHTING APPARATUSES, ADAPTER RESPECTIVELY BALLAST AND CIRCUIT WITH A HIGH FREQUENCY GENERATOR
(FR) PROCEDE DE RACCORDEMENT LIBERABLE D'APPAREILS D'ECLAIRAGE ELECTRIQUES, ADAPTATEUR RESPECTIVEMENT BALLAST ET CIRCUIT AVEC UN GENERATEUR HAUTE FREQUENCE
Abstract:
(EN) In order to replace conventional incandescent lamps by known small fluorescent tubes (9), the present invention proposes an adapter with on one side a socket (10) compatible with fluorescent tubes and on the other side a cap (3) compatible with incandescent lamps. To the adapter, electric and/or electronic aggregates (16, 18, 20, 22) are integrated which enable the electric compatibility of the fluorescent tubes (9) with the mains, as well as their operation by means of a connection to the mains on the cap (3). In order to obtain a compact construction and a substantially reaction-free operation, the invention proposes to operate the tubes (9) at a substantially higher frequency than the mains frequency.
(FR) Afin de permettre le remplacement des lampes à incandescence habituelles par de petits tubes fluorescents connus (9), la présente invention propose un adaptateur avec d'un côté un douille (10) compatible avec des tubes fluorescents et de l'autre côté un culot (3) compatible avec des lampes à incandescence. A l'adaptateur sont intégrés des agrégats électriques et/ou électroniques (16, 18, 20, 22) qui permettent la compatibilité électrique des tubes fluorescents (9) avec le secteur, ainsi que leur mise en service grâce à une connexion au réseau sur le culot (3). Afin d'obtenir une construction compacte et un fonctionnement pratiquement sans répercussions, on propose un fonctionnement des tubes (9) à une fréquence essentiellement plus élevée que la fréquence du réseau.
