Title: AN ELECTRICAL SWITCH FOR GAS COCKS
Abstract:
The invention regards an electrical switch for a lighter for gas burners, which may be associated to a gas-supply cock, said gas-supply cock having a manoeuvring stem (14) that is free to slide and turn about its own axis within the cock body (13) to control gas supply, the electrical switch comprising a shell (15) that can be fixed to the cock body (13), and that encloses a first contact (16) that may be associated to a second contact (17) to close or to open the electrical circuit of the lighter. The aforementioned switch comprises a control rod (31), which is free to slide within said shell (15) and is constrained to the stem (14) in such a way as to translate, but not to rotate, fixedly with the stem (14), in the two directions of translation of said stem (14), said control rod (31) setting said two contacts (16, 17) in electrical connection at a point corresponding to at least one position of the stem (14), said two contacts (16, 17) being otherwise separate from one another.
