Title
(EN) FUEL LEVEL SENSOR WITH FLEXIBLE CIRCUIT
(FR) SONDE DE NIVEAU DE COMBUSTIBLE AVEC CIRCUIT SOUPLE
Abstract
(EN)
A fuel sensor is provided having a flexible printed circuit cylinder (210), having a buoyant member (216) mounted on a rod (214) and a contact member (230) mounted on the buoyant member (216) which abuttingly contacts the rod (214) and the conductive traces (242) formed on the inside of the flexible cylinder wall (210).
(FR)
Cette invention concerne une sonde de niveau de carburant comportant un cylindre souple à circuit imprimé (210) doté d'un élément flottant (216) solidaire d'une tige (214), et un élément de contact (230) monté sur l'élément flottant (216) qui vient toucher la tige (214) et les traces conductrices (242) formées sur la paroi interne du cylindre souple (210).
