Title (EN) TOUCH SWITCH INTEGRATED ONTO A MODULAR COVERING TILE
(FR) INTERRUPTEUR À EFFLEUREMENT INTÉGRÉ DANS UNE PLAQUE DE REVÊTEMENT MODULAIRE
(PT) INTERRUPTOR POR TOQUE INTEGRADO EM PLACA DE REVESTIMENTO MODULAR
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to a ceramic tile, which acts as a contact sensitive switch to actuate on.'resistive, capacitive or inductive charges. This ceramic tile is constituted by two tiles, a smaller one (1) built in the centre of another, where the smaller one is present in the central area of the larger one (2) and acts as a switch. These tiles are joined by a sealing gasket, a transparent o-ring, which allows the passage of light emitted by a series of presence LEDs placed on its inner surface. The o- ring also acts as a protection against the passage of liquids. As an activation element, there is a piezoelectric sensor on the inner surface of the smaller tile, sensitive to the mechanical touches delivered on the outer surface. The ceramic tile contains an electronic system constituted by several modules: power supply, signal acquisition, signal conditioning, signal processing and actuation module, built in an electronic circuit encapsulated in a box, integrated in the inner part of the ceramic tile.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un carreau agissant comme interrupteur à effleurement pour actionner des charges résistives, capacitives ou inductives. Ce carreau est constitué de deux carreaux, l'un encastré au centre de l'autre, le plus petit (1) étant situé dans la zone centrale du plus grand (2) et fonctionnant comme interrupteur. Les deux carreaux sont joints par un anneau d'étanchéité, soit un joint torique, transparent, qui permet le passage de la lumière émise par des DEL de présence placées sur sa surface intérieure. Le joint torique offre également une protection contre les liquides. Comme élément d'activation, on utilise un capteur piézoélectrique situé sur la surface intérieure du petit carreau, sensible aux effleurements effectués sur la surface extérieure. Ledit carreau comprend un système électronique constitué de plusieurs modules: alimentation électrique, acquisition de signal, conditionnement de signal, traitement de signal et module d'actionnement, logés dans un circuit électronique encapsulé dans un boîtier, lequel est intégré dans la partie intérieure du carreau.
(PT)A presente invenção é relativa a um ladrilho que funciona como interruptor sensível ao contacto para accionar cargas resistivas, capacitivas ou indutivas. Este ladrilho é constituído por dois ladrilhos, um embutido no centro do outro, onde o mais pequeno (1) está presente na zona central do maior (2) e funciona como interruptor. Os dois ladrilhos são unidos por um anel vedante, o-ring, transparente, que permite a passagem da luz emitida por LEDs de presença colocados na sua superfície interior. O o- ring também tem como propósito a protecção contra líquidos. Como elemento de activação existe um sensor piezoeléctrico na superfície interior do ladrilho menor, sensível aos toques efectuados na superfície exterior. O ladrilho contém um sistema electrónico constituído por vários módulos: alimentação eléctrica, aquisição de sinal, condicionamento de sinal, processamento de sinal e módulo de actuação, embutidos num circuito electrónico encapsulado numa caixa, integrada na parte interior do ladrilho.
