Title (EN) ELECTRONIC SWITCH MECHANISM
(FR) MÉCANISME DE COMMUTATION ÉLECTRONIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A switch mechanism (12) includes a housing (16, 18) with a fenestration (21), a switch element (22) held in the housing, and a membrane switch held in the fenestration. The membrane switch includes a flexible membrane (20) and a rigid rib (26). The rib is constrained to linear movement by guides (37, 38) in the housing so that contact with the membrane causes the membrane to deform and the rib to translate to actuate the switch element.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un mécanisme de commutation (12) comprenant un boîtier (16, 18) pourvu d'une fenestration (21), d'un élément de commutation (22) maintenu dans le boîtier, et d'un commutateur à membrane maintenu dans la fenestration. Le commutateur à membrane comprend une membrane souple (20) et une nervure rigide (26). La nervure est contrainte à un mouvement linéaire au moyen de guides (37, 38) dans le boîtier de sorte que le contact avec la membrane provoque la déformation de la membrane et la translation de la nervure de manière à actionner l'élément de commutation.
