Title (EN) METHOD OF OPTIMIZING MEMORY WIRE ACTUATOR ENERGY OUTPUT
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'OPTIMISATION DE SORTIE D'ÉNERGIE D'ACTIONNEUR DE FIL DE MÉMOIRE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for locking an electronic device includes an actuator, a return mechanism, and an arm. The actuator includes an actuator SMM wire that is configured to apply a contraction force. The return mechanism includes a return SMM wire that is configured to apply a return force opposite the contraction force. The arm is movable toward an unlocked position by the actuator and movable toward a locked position by the return force. The arm has at least one equilibrium position with less than 1 Newton of force on the arm from the actuator and less than 1 Newton of force on the arm from the return mechanism.
(FR) L’invention concerne un appareil de verrouillage d'un dispositif électronique qui comprend un actionneur, un mécanisme de rappel et un bras. L'actionneur comprend un fil SMM d'actionneur qui est conçu pour appliquer une force de contraction. Le mécanisme de rappel comprend un fil SMM de rappel qui est configuré pour appliquer une force de rappel à l'opposé de la force de contraction. Le bras est mobile vers une position déverrouillée par l'actionneur et mobile vers une position verrouillée par la force de rappel. Le bras a au moins une position d'équilibre avec moins de 1 Newton de force sur le bras à partir de l'actionneur et inférieure à 1 Newton de force sur le bras à partir du mécanisme de rappel.
