Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR PRODUCING AN ELECTRIC SIGNAL PROVIDED WITH LUMINOUS MEANS CHARACTERIZING SAID SIGNAL
(FR) APPAREIL DE PRODUCTION D'UN SIGNAL ELECTRIQUE DOTE D'UN MOYEN LUMINEUX CARACTERISANT LEDIT SIGNAL
Abstract:
(EN) The invention concerns an apparatus for producing an electric signal whereof one characteristic, the voltage for example, is adjustable. The apparatus is provided with a connector located at the end of a cable for delivering said signal to another electrical apparatus. Said connector comprises means for emitting a luminous signal whereof one visible characteristic depends on the electric signal produced. An improvement consists in that the luminous signal is derived from a white light source which is colour-modulated by filters. Said filters are mechanically secured to a mobile part belonging to the means for adjusting the supplied signal. The invention also concerns a system comprising the apparatus delivering the signal and the apparatus to be connected, the latter being provided with a mark identifying the luminous signal compatible with the electric signal to be received.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil fournissant un signal électrique dont une caractéristique, la tension par exemple, est réglable. L'appareil dispose d'un connecteur se trouvant à l'extrémité d'un câble pour la fourniture de ce signal à un autre appareil électrique. Ce connecteur comporte un moyen d'émission d'un signal lumineux dont une caractéristique visible dépend du signal électrique produit. Un perfectionnement consiste en ce que le signal lumineux provient d'une source de lumière blanche qui est modulée en couleur par des filtres. Ces filtres sont mécaniquement solidaires d'une partie mobile appartenant au moyen de réglage du signal fourni. L'invention concerne également un système comprenant l'appareil fournissant le signal et l'appareil à connecter, ce dernier est doté d'une marque identifiant le signal lumineux compatible avec le signal électrique à recevoir.
