Title (EN) WIRELESS CONTROL DEVICE HAVING A FACEPLATE WITH ILLUMINATED INDICIA
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE COMMANDE SANS FIL AYANT UNE PLAQUE FRONTALE AVEC SYMBOLES LUMINEUX
Abstract:
(EN) A control device may include a removable faceplate, a planar printed circuit board (PCB), a structure located between the faceplate and the PCB, one or more LEDs (e.g., side firing LEDs) mounted to the PCB, and a light-guiding component. The structure may include an antenna configured to transmit or receive radio frequency signals. The faceplate may be configured to be mounted to the control device, and may include a light-conductive body and an opaque material provided on a front surface of the faceplate. At least one indicia may be engraved in the opaque material. The light-guiding component may include a planar portion and a curved portion. The planar portion may be located between the faceplate and the structure. The curved portion may extend between the LEDs on the printed circuit board and the planar portion to transmit light generated by the LEDs to the faceplate to illuminate the indicia.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de commande qui peut comprendre une plaque frontale, une carte de circuit imprimé (PCB) plane, une structure située entre la plaque frontale et la PCB, une ou plusieurs DEL (par exemple, des DEL à allumage latéral) montées sur la PCB, et un élément de guidage de lumière. La structure peut comprendre une antenne configurée pour émettre ou recevoir des signaux radiofréquence. La plaque frontale peut être configurée pour être montée sur le dispositif de commande, et peut comprendre un corps conducteur de lumière et un matériau opaque disposé sur une surface avant de la plaque frontale. Au moins un symbole peut être gravé dans le matériau opaque. L'élément de guidage de lumière peut comprendre une partie plane et une partie incurvée. La partie plane peut être située entre la plaque frontale et la structure. La partie courbe peut s'étendre entre les DEL sur la carte de circuit imprimé et la partie plane pour transmettre la lumière générée par les DEL vers la plaque frontale pour éclairer le symbole.
