Title (EN) ILLUMINATION UNIT WITH SERPENTINE-SHAPED COLD CATHODE FLUORESCENT LAMP
(FR) LAMPE FLUORESCENTE POUR APPLICATIONS D'ECLAIRAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A lighting device comprises a serpentine shaped CCFL, a driver driving the CCFL, a connector that allows the device to connect to and receive power from conventional power sockets, and a fixture that connects them into a single device. Such device can be used for general lighting purposes and replaces incandescent and other fluorescent lamps in current use without having to change electrical sockets. The fixture mechanically connects the CCFL, the driver and the connector to form an unitary mechanical structure. Preferably an air gap is maintained between the CCFL and the driver.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif d'éclairage comprenant un CCFL en forme de serpentin, un circuit de commande commandant le CCFL, un connecteur permettant de connecter le dispositif à une alimentation-réception au moyen de prises de courant conventionnelles, et une armature pour les connecter, en un seul dispositif. Un tel dispositif peut être utilisé pour l'usage général d'éclairage et pour remplacer les lampes à incandescence et autres lampes fluorescentes habituellement utilisées, sans avoir à changer les prises électriques. La garniture connecte mécaniquement le CCFL, la commande et le connecteur, de manière à former une structure mécanique unitaire. De préférence, un entrefer est maintenu entre le CCFL et le circuit de commande.
