Title
(DE) VERSCHLUSSORGAN FÜR EINEN KRAFTSTOFFTANK EINES KRAFTFAHRZEUGS
(EN) CLOSURE ELEMENT FOR A FUEL TANK OF A MOTOR VEHICLE
(FR) ÉLÉMENT DE FERMETURE D'UN RÉSERVOIR DE CARBURANT D'UN VÉHICULE AUTOMOBILE
Abstract
(DE)
Die Erfindung betrifft ein Verschlussorgan (2) für einen Kraftstofftank eines Kraftfahrzeugs, das von einer Bedienperson zum Befüllen des Tanks von diesem oder von einem Einfüllstutzen desselben zumindest abschnittsweise entfernbar ist. Am Verschlussorgan (2) oder nahe desselben ist eine Anzeige (4) vorgesehen, mit welcher die Bedienperson auf das Vorliegen von Überdruck und/oder Unterdruck im Tank hingewiesen wird. Vorzugsweise erfolgt die Anzeige über einen mechanischen Druckfühler auf mechanischem Weg und zwar bezüglich des Vorliegens von im wesentlichen Umgebungsdruck oder Überdruck über unterschiedliche Farben.
(EN)
The invention relates to a closure element (2) for a fuel tank of a motor vehicle, which can be removed by an operator for filling the tank or, at least in certain sections, from the filler neck of said tank. A display (4) is provided at or in the vicinity of the closure element (2), by means of which the operator is informed of the presence of excess pressure and/or negative pressure in the tank. The status is displayed preferably in a mechanical manner by means of a mechanical pressure sensor, involving different colours for signalling the presence of essentially ambient pressure or excess pressure.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un élément de fermeture (2) d'un réservoir de carburant d'un véhicule automobile dont le plein est effectué par une personne de service, élément qui peut être éloigné, du moins en partie, du réservoir ou d'une tubulure de remplissage de ce réservoir. L'invention est caractérisée en ce qu'il est prévu sur l'élément de fermeture (2), ou au voisinage de celui-ci, un affichage (4) informant la personne de service de l'existence d'une surpression et/ou d'une dépression dans le réservoir. De préférence, l'affichage est effectué par voie mécanique via un capteur de pression mécanique et ceci, essentiellement suivant l'existence d'une pression ou d'une surpression ambiante, par l'intermédiaire de couleurs différentes.
