Title: THERMOGENERATOR ARRANGEMENT, THERMAL SWITCH, AND METHOD FOR OPERATING AN ELECTRICAL DEVICE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a thermogenerator arrangement comprising: an electrically operable device (1); switching means, by means of which the device can be switched from a first, energy-saving state to a second, active state; and at least one thermogenerator (2), which generates an electrical signal when there is a temperature change in the environment of the thermogenerator, which electrical signal is forwarded to the switching means, wherein the switching means are designed in such a way that the device is switched from the first state to the second state according to the electrical signal of the thermogenerator (2). The invention further relates to a thermal switch and to a method for operating an electrical device.
