Abstract: front page image
(EN)An instrument cluster assembly includes a plurality of gauges (14) that each provides an indication and measure for communicating vehicle operating conditions to a vehicle operator. At least one of the gauges includes a secondary scale (18) that includes a plurality of individually illuminatable segments (28). The measured parameter is indicated by the secondary scales by illuminating select segments in a variable manner between a fully illuminated (32), partially illuminated (38) and off (36) conditions to provide an additional degree of precision.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un ensemble de groupement d'instruments, lequel ensemble comprend une pluralité de dispositifs de mesure qui fournissent chacun une indication et une mesure pour communiquer des conditions de fonctionnement de véhicule à un opérateur de véhicule. Au moins l'un des dispositifs de mesure comprend une graduation secondaire qui comprend une pluralité de segments pouvant être éclairés individuellement. Le paramètre mesuré est indiqué par les graduations secondaires par l'éclairage de segments sélectionnés d'une manière variable entre des conditions totalement éclairée, partiellement éclairée et éteinte, de façon à procurer un degré de précision additionnel.
