Title (EN) VEHICLE WINDOW WITH DE-ICING FEATURE AND METHOD
(FR) VITRE DE VEHICULE A FONCTION DE DEGIVRAGE ET PROCEDE CORRESPONDANT
Abstract:
(EN) A window such as a vehicle window (e.g., windshield) has a de-icing feature. In certain example embodiments, a conductive structure is provided on an interior surface of a substrate of the window, AC tuned to an ice removal frequency is caused to run through the conductive structure, and fields generated by the AC passing through the conductive structure propagate through the substrate to an exterior surface of the window and can be absorbed by ice thereby causing the ice to melt and/or be removed from the window.
(FR) L'invention concerne une vitre, telle qu'une vitre de véhicule (par ex. un pare-brise), présentant une fonction de dégivrage. Dans certains modes de réalisation cités en exemple, il est prévu une structure sur un surface intérieure d'un substrat de la vitre; il est prévu de faire passer un courant alternatif accordé à une fréquence d'élimination du givre à travers la structure conductrice, de manière qu'il se propage à travers le substrat en direction d'une surface extérieure de la vitre et qu'il puisse être absorbé par le givre, ce qui a pour effet de faire fondre le givre et/ou de permettre de l'éliminer de la vitre.
