Title (EN) A BUTTON ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE BOUTON
Abstract:
(EN) According to the present invention there is provided a button assembly, comprising, a platform having at least two electrodes; a dome member which comprises electrically conductive material, wherein the dome member is electrically connected to at least one of said at least two electrodes, and the dome is arranged so that at least a portion of the dome member overlays at least one other of the at least two electrodes, so that when the dome member is selectively collapsed inwardly by the application of force, the dome member will electrically contact said at least one other of the at least two electrodes, so that in its collapse state the dome member electrically connects the at least one of said at least two electrodes with the at least one other of the at least two electrodes; an interface member which comprises, (a) a compression member which is attached to the dome member at a position which overlays said at least one other of the at least two electrodes; (b) a restrictor member which is configured such that it projects towards the platform and the distance between the platform and the restrictor member is less than the distance between said at least one other of the at least two electrodes and portion of the dome which overlays at least one other of the at least two electrodes, and (c) at least one elastic member which connects the restrictor member and the compression member.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble bouton, comprenant une plateforme ayant au moins deux électrodes ; un élément dôme qui comprend un matériau électroconducteur, l'élément dôme étant électroconnecté à au moins l'une desdites au moins deux électrodes, et le dôme étant agencé de telle sorte qu'au moins une partie de l'élément dôme recouvre au moins une autre desdites au moins deux électrodes, de sorte que lorsque l'élément dôme est sélectivement plié vers l'intérieur par l'application d'une force, l'élément dôme vient en contact électrique avec ladite au moins une autre desdites au moins deux électrodes, de sorte que dans son état de repliement, l'élément dôme connecte électriquement ladite au moins une desdites au moins deux électrodes à ladite au moins une autre desdites au moins deux électrodes ; un élément d'interface qui comprend, (a) un élément de compression qui est fixé à l'élément dôme à une position qui recouvre ladite au moins une autre desdites au moins deux électrodes ; (b) un élément restricteur qui est configuré de telle sorte qu'il fait saillie vers la plateforme et la distance entre la plateforme et l'élément restricteur est inférieure à la distance entre ladite au moins une autre desdites au moins deux électrodes et une partie du dôme qui recouvre au moins une autre desdites au moins deux électrodes, et (c) au moins un élément élastique qui relie l'élément restricteur et l'élément de compression.
