Title
(EN) AN ELECTRICALLY OPERATED SMOKING DEVICE INCLUDING A COMPACT SYSTEM FOR IDENTIFYING SMOKING ARTICLES IN THE DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF À FUMER À COMMANDE ÉLECTRIQUE COMPRENANT UN SYSTÈME COMPACT D'IDENTIFICATION D'ARTICLES À FUMER DANS LE DISPOSITIF
Abstract
(EN)
An electrically operated smoking device configured to receive a smoking article, comprising: a housing (10) defining a cavity (15) for at least partially receiving the smoking article(12); and a sensing system (40) for detecting indicia on the smoking article, the sensing system positioned on a periphery of the cavity and comprising a light source (42), an image detector (44), and a plurality of microlenses (46) positioned on the image detector. The use of a plurality of microlenses on the image detector allows for a thin sensing system to be made, as the distance between the microlenses and detector can be made small. This is advantageous in a handheld device.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un dispositif à fumer à commande électrique conçu pour recevoir un article à fumer, comprenant : un boîtier (10) définissant une cavité (15) pour recevoir au moins partiellement l'article à fumer (12); et un système de détection (40) pour détecter des indications sur l'article à fumer, le système de détection étant placé sur une périphérie de la cavité et comprenant une source de lumière (42), un détecteur d'image (44), et une pluralité de microlentilles (46) placées sur le détecteur d'image. L'utilisation d'une pluralité de microlentilles sur le détecteur d'image permet la réalisation d'un système de détection mince, puisque la distance entre les microlentilles et le détecteur peut être rendue faible. Ceci est avantageux dans un dispositif portatif.
