Title
(EN) CONNECTING A PORTABLE DEVICE TO A NETWORK
(FR) CONNEXION D'UN DISPOSITIF PORTATIF A UN RESEAU
Abstract
(EN)
A tag (30) associated with a device (12) and that identifies the device with respect to other devices is connected to a communication link (16) with the same connector (100) used to connect the device to a source of power (110). The device connector includes an element for receiving electrical power and a data contact (106) connected to the tag. An electrical power connector (110) (which serves as the power source) has an element for engaging the element of the device connector and applying electrical power thereto, and another data contact (120) connected to the communication link (16). When the device connector is engaged with the electrical power source connector, the data contacts engage one another and establish a data path between the communication link and the tag. The connection to the communication link allows information to be exchanged between the communication link and the tag.
(FR)
Un marqueur (30) associé avec un dispositif (12) permet d'identifier le dispositif par rapport à d'autres dispositifs. Ce marqueur est connecté à une liaison de communication (16) par le même connecteur (100) que celui utilisé pour connecter le dispositif à une source (110) de courant. Le connecteur du dispositif comporte un élément pour recevoir le courant électrique et un contact (106) pour les données connecté au marqueur. Un connecteur (110) à courant électrique (qui sert de source de courant) a un élément pour s'engager avec l'élément du connecteur du dispositif et assurer son alimentation en courant électrique et un autre contact (120) pour données connecté à la liaison de communication (16). Lorsque le connecteur du dispositif est engagé avec le connecteur de la source de courant électrique, les contacts pour données s'engagent ensemble et établissent un trajet de communication entre la liaison de communication et le marqueur. La connexion à la liaison de communication permet un échange d'information entre la liaison de communication et le marqueur.
