Title (EN) HIGH EFFICIENCY POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT FOR AN ELECTRICAL DISCHARGE WEAPON
(FR) CIRCUIT D'ALIMENTATION TRES EFFICACE POUR ARME A DECHARGE ELECTRIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An electrical discharge weapon for immobilizing a live target that includes a shock circuit (10) having a low power consumption, a high power efficiency, and/or a low weight. The shock circuit (10) may be entirely contained in a projectile (512) without the need for range limiting trailing wires. In one embodiment, the shock circuit (10) includes a high efficiency circuit that recaptures a certain amount of energy that would otherwise be wasted.
(FR) L'invention concerne une arme à décharge électrique destinée immobiliser une cible vivante, qui comprend un circuit de choc peu gourmand en énergie, de grande puissance et/ou dont le poids est peu élevé. Le circuit de choc est entièrement contenu dans un projectile et ne nécessite pas de fils traînants qui en limitent la portée. Dans une forme de réalisation, le circuit de choc comprend un circuit très efficace permettant de recapturer une certaine quantité d'énergie, qui autrement serait perdue.
