Title
(EN) DOUBLE-ENDED LAMP SOCKET SYSTEM AND METHOD OF USE
(FR) SYSTÈME DE DOUILLE DE LAMPE À DOUBLE EXTRÉMITÉ ET SON PROCÉDÉ D'UTILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
A double-ended socket system for safely and easily seating a double-ended lamp is disclosed. The system has two socket assemblies spaced a distance corresponding to the length of a double-ended lamp. Each socket assembly has a housing with a recess that houses a cylindrical socket for receiving a lamp end that rotates between a disengaged and engaged orientation. The housing has an attached electrical connector connected to a power source. The socket has another attached electrical connector that contacts the electrical connector of the housing only when the socket is rotated to the engaged orientation, thus eliminating the electrical shock hazard of conventional double-ended socket systems. The lamp may be removed only while in the disengaged orientation. A user may install a double-ended lamp into the socket system with only one hand. A method of use of a double-ended socket system is also disclosed.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système de douille à double extrémité pour installer en toute sécurité et facilement une lampe à double extrémité. Le système comprend deux ensembles douille espacés d'une distance correspondant à la longueur d'une lampe à double extrémité. Chaque ensemble douille a un boîtier ayant un évidement qui loge une douille cylindrique pour recevoir une extrémité de lampe qui tourne entre une orientation désengagée et engagée. Le boîtier a un connecteur électrique fixé connecté à une source d'alimentation. La douille comprend un autre connecteur électrique fixé qui entre en contact avec le connecteur électrique du boîtier uniquement lorsque la douille est tournée vers l'orientation engagée, ce qui permet d'éliminer le risque de choc électrique des systèmes de douille à double extrémité classiques. La lampe peut être retirée uniquement lorsqu'elle est dans l'orientation désengagée. Un utilisateur peut installer une lampe à double extrémité dans le système de douille avec une seule main. L'invention concerne également un procédé d'utilisation d'un système de douille à double extrémité.
