Abstract
(EN)
A method and apparatus that is attachable to a receptacle (12) for timing a predetermined interval according to a timing schedule of a set of timing schedules. The apparatus has an electronic timing circuit (16) that provides an alarm signal at the expiration of the predetermined time interval. The timing circuit (16) includes a set of inputs and a set of outputs that are both connected to processing circuitry (150). The processing circuitry (150) defines the set of selectable timing schedules. The inputs correspond to the timing schedules, and the outputs issue the alarm signals. The apparatus also includes a sensing mechanism (420) for selectively engaging an input based on the position of the mechanism. Each timing schedule is selectable by the device through the inputs that are engaged and disengaged.

L'invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif de temporisation, lequel peut être attaché à un réceptacle (12), afin de temporiser un intervalle de temps déterminé, en fonction d'un calendrier de temporisation d'un ensemble de tels calendriers. Ce dispositif comprend un circuit électronique de temporisation (16) produisant un signal d'alarme à l'expiration de l'intervalle de temps déterminé. Ce circuit (16) comporte un ensemble d'entrées et un ensemble de sorties, toutes connectées aux circuits de traitement (150). Les circuits de traitement définissent l'ensemble des calendriers de temporisation possibles. Les entrées correspondent aux calendriers de temporisation, et les sorties produisent les signaux d'alarme. Ce dispositif comprend également un mécanisme de détection (420) destiné à activer de manière sélective une entrée, en fonction de la position du mécanisme. Chaque calendrier de temporisation peut être choisi par le dispositif, par l'intermédiaire des entrées qui sont activées et désactivées.
