Title (EN) AUTOMOTIVE COMBINATION SWITCH
(FR) COMMUTATEUR MULTIPLE POUR AUTOMOBILE
Abstract:
(EN) An automotive combination switch having a simple relay connector structure between switch units, comprising a smaller number of parts and excelling in assemblability and reliability. The structure comprises: a light control switch unit (1) comprising a case having a crosspiece fitted into a groove (5a) in a body (5), an elastic fitting tab (7a), and a stopper claw (8a) disposed thereabove, a plurality of functional switches housed in the case, and a fixed connector (10a) disposed in the bottom part of the case and adapted to take out switching signals; and a wiper control switch unit (2) housing a plurality of functional switches and similarly having a crosspiece, a fitting tab (7b), a stopper claw (8b) disposed thereabove, and a fixed connector (10b) housed in the unit (2). When the switch units are fitted to the body (5), a relay lead (17) having at both ends movable connectors (19a, 19b), detachably fitted to the fixed connectors (10a, 10b) of the switch units is movably engaged with the body (5).
(FR) L'invention concerne un commutateur multiple pour automobile comportant une simple structure de raccordement à relais entre des ensembles commutateurs, comprenant un petit nombre de pièces et d'excellentes caractéristiques d'assemblage et de fiabilité. Cette structure comporte: un ensemble commutateur d'éclairage (1) possédant un boîtier présentant une traverse logée dans une rainure (5a) ménagée dans un corps (5), une patte de montage élastique (7a), et une griffe d'arrêt (8a) disposée dessus, une pluralité de commutateurs fonctionnels logés dans le boîtier, et un connecteur fixe (10a) disposé dans la partie inférieure du boîtier et adapté pour extraire des signaux de commutation; et un ensemble commutateur d'essuie-glace (2) renfermant une pluralité de commutateurs fonctionnels et comprenant de la même manière une traverse, une patte de montage (7b), une griffe d'arrêt (8b) disposée dessus, et un connecteur fixe (10b) logé dans l'ensemble (2). Lorsque ces ensembles commutateurs sont montés sur le corps (5), un conducteur de relais (17) ayant à ses deux extrémités des connecteurs mobiles (19a, 19b), montés amovibles aux connecteurs fixes (10a, 10b) des ensembles commutateurs, est en contact libérable avec le corps (5).
