Title
(EN) A METHOD OF PRODUCING AN ELECTRICAL SWITCH
(FR) PROCEDE DE PRODUCTION D'UN INTERRUPTEUR ELECTRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A method of producing an electrical switch wherein material is cut out of a sheet or web (1) of electrically conductive material such that a plurality of sets of terminals (5, 6, 7) are formed integral with the sheet (1). A housing (not shown) is moulded onto each set of terminals such that the inner terminals (7) are within the housing. Operative elements are mounted in the housing. The moulding of the housings and the mounting of the elements are performed on a plurality of sets of terminals simultaneously. The individual switches are separated from the sheet (1) either by severing the terminals 5 at 15 and 25 and the terminals 6 at 16, thereby forming a switch with a short distance (fx 4 mm) between the terminal ends of terminals (16), or by severing the terminals 6 at 16 and 26 and the terminals 5 at 15, thereby forming a switch with a longer distance (fx 6 mm) between the terminal ends of terminal (15). Hereby a switch for being mounted in an array of either 4x4 mm or 6x6 mm may optionally be produced with the same equipement and in the same process.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un procédé de fabrication d'un interrupteur électrique consistant à découper dans une feuille ou plaque (1) d'un matériau électroconducteur de manière qu'une pluralité d'ensembles de bornes (5, 6, 7) fassent partie intégrante de la feuille (1). Un boîtier (non illustré) est moulé sur chaque ensemble de bornes de manière à ce que les bornes intérieures (7) soient placées dans le boîtier ainsi que les éléments fonctionnels. Le moulage des boîtiers et le montage desdits éléments s'opèrent simultanément sur plusieurs ensembles de bornes. On sépare les interrupteurs individuels de la feuille (1) soit en sectionnant les bornes 5 à 15, et 25 et 6 à 16 de manière à former un interrupteur présentant une faible distance (fx 4 mm) entre les extrémités des bornes (16), soit en sectionnant les bornes 6 à 16 et 26 et les bornes 5 à 15 de manière à former un interrupteur présentant une plus longue distance (fx 6 mm) entre les extrémités des bornes (15). On a ainsi le choix entre un interrupteur pour réseau 4x4 mm ou 6x6 mm pouvant être fabriqué indifféremment avec le même équipement et selon la même technique.
