Title (EN) RECHARGEABLE LAMP SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE LAMPES RECHARGEABLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A rechargeable lamp system (10) includes a set of one or more self-standing rechargeable lighting fixtures (12) removably received on a recharging platter. The luminaries each include a light diffuser (114) resembling a candle that turns on when removed from the charging platter (28). The luminaries also turn on when power to the charging platter (28) is turned off, which allows the set to be used as a table lamp, and has the added benefit of turning the luminaries on automatically during a power failure. The luminaries are each inductively coupled to the recharging platter, which enables to provide an aesthetically pleasing interface free of electrical contacts.
(FR)Un système (10) de lampes rechargeables comprend un ensemble d'un ou de plusieurs appareils d'éclairage rechargeables autonomes (12) reçus amovible sur un plateau de recharge. Les luminaires comprennent chacun un diffuseur (114) de lumière ressemblant à une bougie s'allumant lorsqu'ils sont retirés du plateau de charge (28). Les luminaires s'allument également lorsque l'alimentation du plateau de charge (28) est coupée, ce qui permet d'utiliser l'ensemble comme lampe de table, et présente l'avantage supplémentaire d'allumer les luminaires automatiquement lors d'une panne d'alimentation. Les luminaires sont couplés chacun de manière inductive au plateau de recharge, ce qui permet d'obtenir une interface esthétiquement agréable exempte de contacts électriques.
