Title
(EN) FUEL LEVEL SENSOR WITH MINIATURIZED CERAMIC RESISTOR CARD
(FR) DETECTEUR DE NIVEAU DE CARBURANT A CARTE A RESISTANCE CERAMIQUE MINIATURISEE
Abstract
(EN)
A fuel level sensor (10) is provided having an arm (14) pivotally mounted to a frame (12) adjacent a cam (20) that translates the pivotal motion of the arm (14) into a linear motion so that a contact arm (30) provided with a contact finger (32) may move linearly across a miniaturized resistor card (40).
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un détecteur de niveau de carburant pourvu d'un bras de contact monté pivotant sur un cadre adjacent à une came qui translate le mouvement pivotant du bras en un mouvement linéaire de sorte que le bras de contact puisse se déplacer linéairement dans une carte à résistance miniaturisée.
