(FR) SYSTEME DE COMMANDE POUR MOTEURS VIBRATOIRES ET ALIMENTATION EN ENERGIE
Abstract
(EN)
A massaging system for use in an article of furniture includes a plurality of vibrators (1L, 1R to 5L, 5R), constructed and arranged to be positioned in spaced apart relation on the article of furniture (10), a power source (22) and a plurality of switching devices (24) selectively connecting the vibrators to the power source (22) in a sequence dependent upon the receipt of predetermined input signals. A processor (34) is coupled to the switching matrix (27) and includes a memory in which a plurality of signal sequences are stored. A selector (27) is coupled to the processor (34) and has a plurality of individual actuators (SW1-SW12), each operative for providing a predetermined input singal to the processor. The processor (34) is operative to access a different one of the signal sequences and for outputting the signal sequences to the switching devices (24) upon the selection of each of the plurality of actuators (27) so that the vibrators will be actuated in a different predetermined sequence upon the selection of different ones of the actuators (27). A full wave rectifier (225) having input terminals (223, 224) connected to a power supply (216) and a pair of output terminals (244) for providing full wave rectified current.

L'invention concerne un système de massage destiné à être utilisé dans un meuble, qui comprend une pluralité de dispositifs vibreurs conçus et assemblés selon une configuration en intervalles dans le meuble. Le système comprend en outre une source d'alimentation et une pluralité d'interrupteurs qui permettent de coupler sélectivement les dispositifs vibreurs à la source d'alimentation selon une séquence qui dépend de la réception d'un certain nombre de signaux d'entrée préétablis. Un organe de traitement couplé à la matrice de commutation comprend une mémoire qui conserve une pluralité de séquences de signaux. Un sélecteur couplé à l'organe de traitement est équipé d'une pluralité d'actionneurs individuels, chacun d'entre eux fournissant un signal d'entrée prédéterminé à l'organe de traitement. Cet organe de traitement peut accéder à l'une quelconque des séquences de signaux et fournir ces séquences aux interrupteurs, suivant la sélection de chacun des actionneurs, de sorte que les dispositifs vibreurs puissent être actionnés selon telle ou telle séquence préétablie correspondant au choix de tel ou tel actionneur. Enfin, il existe un redresseur à deux alternances dont les bornes d'entrée sont reliées à une source d'alimentation et dont les deux bornes de sortie fournissent un courant redressé sur les deux alternances.
