Title (EN) LIGHTING UNIT
(FR) UNITÉ D'ÉCLAIRAGE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention describes a lighting unit (1), comprising a plurality of lighting modules (10) and a number of connecting elements (2) with coupling means (21, 22), wherein each lighting element (10) comprises at least one planar light-emitting element (11) in an enclosure (12) and a number of counter-coupling means (J1, J2) arranged along at least one edge of the enclosure (12); and wherein neighbouring lighting modules (10) are coupled together detachably by means of at least one connecting element (2) such that the light-emitting element (11) of a first lighting module (10) is electrically connected to the light-emitting element (11) of a second lighting module (10) by an interaction of at least part of the coupling means (21, 22) of the connecting element (2) and at least part of the counter-coupling means (J1, J2) of the corresponding lighting modules (10). The invention also describes a connecting element (2) and a lighting module (10) for assembling such a lighting unit (1).
(FR) L'invention concerne une unité d'éclairage (1), comprenant une pluralité de modules d'éclairage (10) et plusieurs éléments de raccordement (2) avec des moyens de couplage (21, 22), chaque élément d'éclairage (10) comprenant un ou plusieurs éléments électroluminescents (11) plans dans une enceinte (12) et plusieurs moyens de contre-couplage (J1, J2) disposés le long du ou des bords de l'enceinte (12), et des modules d'éclairage (10) voisins étant couplés ensemble de façon détachable au moyen du ou des éléments de raccordement (2) de telle manière que l'élément électroluminescent (11) d'un premier module d'éclairage (10) soit raccordé électriquement à l'élément électroluminescent (11) d'un second module d'éclairage (10) par une interaction d'au moins une partie des moyens de couplage (21, 22) de l'élément de raccordement (2) et d'au moins une partie des moyens de contre-couplage (J1, J2) des modules d'éclairage (10) correspondants. L'invention concerne également un élément de raccordement (2) et un module d'éclairage (10) pour assembler une telle unité d'éclairage (1).
