Title
(DE) SCHALTER MIT ABHEBERAMPE
(EN) SWITCH WITH LIFTING RAMP
(FR) COMMUTATEUR POURVU D'UNE RAMPE DE SOULEVEMENT
Abstract
(DE)
Die Erfindung beschreibt einen Schalter, vorzugsweise Lenkstockschalter mit einem im wesentlichen schiebend über die gehäusefesten Kontaktabschnitte (2, 3) geschobenen Betätigungsglied. Aufgabe der Erfindung ist es, einen Lenkstockschalter anzugeben, der bei kleinen Abmessungen dauerhaft eine gute Kontaktgabe der miteinander zu verbindenden Kontakte gewährleistet. Die Erfindung löst die Aufgabe durch Rampen (5, 21, 22), welche die Kontaktbrücke (6) im Übergangsbereich anheben. Vorteilhafte Weiterbildungen beschreiben die Ausgestaltung der Rampen (5, 21, 22), der Leiterbahn (4) und der Kontaktbrücke (6).
(EN)
The invention relates to a switch, preferably a steering column switch with a actuation member pushed to substantially slide across the contact sections (2, 3) secured to the housing. The object of the invention is to provide a steering column switch which, with small dimensions, permanently ensures a good level of contact between the contacts to be connected to each other. The object is attained by ramps (5, 21, 22) which lift the contact bridge (6) in the transition area. Further advantageous developments describe the design of the ramps (5, 21, 22), the strip conductor (4) and the contact bridge (6).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un commutateur, de préférence un commutateur de colonne de direction comprenant un organe d'actionnement poussé de façon à sensiblement glisser sur les sections de contact (2, 3) fixées au boîtier. L'objectif de l'invention est l'obtention d'un commutateur de colonne de direction qui, bien qu'étant de petite dimension, assure en permanence un bon niveau de contact entre les contacts à relier. Cet objectif est atteint grâce à des rampes (5, 21, 22) qui soulèvent le pont de contact (6) dans la zone de transition. D'autres développements concernent la conception des rampes (5, 21, 22), de la piste conductive (4) et du pont de contact (6).
