Title
(EN) ILLUMINATED ASSEMBLY FOR A SWITCH/OUTLET
(FR) DISPOSITIF ECLAIRANT POUR UN COMMUTATEUR OU POUR UNE PRISE
Abstract
(EN)
An illuminating apparatus for a wall switch (20) or outlet (2) that has a pair of terminals (4, 5) across which an electric potential is available, including an electroluminescent lamp plate (17) having first and second electrode deposits (14, 15) on a surface thereof, and a contact plate (12) disposed between the wall switch (20) or outlet (2) and the electroluminescent lamp plate (17) and a back surface facing the switch (20) or outlet (2), the contact plate (12) having first and second conductors (3, 6), each of which pass through the contact plate (12) and one of the terminals (5), and the second conductor (6) contacting the second electrode deposit (15) and the other of the terminals (4).
(FR)
Un dispositif éclairant pour un commutateur mural (20) ou pour une prise murale (2) a une paire de bornes (4, 5) sur lesquelles une tension électrique est disponible, comprend une plaque électroluminescente (17) ayant des premier et seconds dépôts d'électrode (14, 15) sur une surface et une plaque de contact (12) placée entre le commutateur mural (20) ou la prise murale (2) et la plaque électroluminescente (17) et une face arrière faisant face au commutateur (20) ou à la prise (2), la plaque de contact (12) ayant des premier et second conducteurs (3, 6) traversant chacun la plaque de contact (12) et une des bornes (5), le second conducteur (6) venant en contact avec le second dépôt d'électrode (15) et l'autre borne (4).
