(FR) CONNEXION DE BARRE OMNIBUS ET TECHNOLOGIE DE REVÊTEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
The invention provides an IG unit comprising two panes and a between-pane space between the two panes. A desired surface of one of the two panes bears a coating comprising both a transparent conductive oxide film, and an overcoat film located over the transparent conductive oxide film. The IG unit further comprises a bus bar and a transparent conductor bridge each located over the desired surface. The bus bar is spaced apart from the coating and is connected electrically to the transparent conductive oxide film by virtue of the transparent conductor bridge extending from the bus bar to a top surface of the overcoat film. In some embodiments, the IG unit further comprises a frit located over the desired surface and extending around a perimeter thereof. The bus bar is located over the frit. Certain embodiments provide a refrigerator having a door comprising such an IG unit.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une unité de vitrage isolant (IG) comprenant deux vitres et un espace entre les vitres entre les deux vitres. Une surface souhaitée de l'une des deux vitres porte un revêtement comprenant à la fois un film d'oxyde conducteur transparent, et un film de revêtement situé sur le film d'oxyde conducteur transparent. L'unité IG comprend en outre une barre omnibus et un pont conducteur transparent situés chacun sur la surface souhaitée. La barre omnibus est espacée du revêtement et est connectée électriquement au film d'oxyde conducteur transparent grâce au pont conducteur transparent s'étendant de la barre omnibus à une surface supérieure du film de revêtement. Selon certains modes de réalisation, l'unité IG comprend en outre une fritte située sur la surface souhaitée et s'étendant autour d'un périmètre de cette dernière. La barre omnibus est située au-dessus de la fritte. Certains modes de réalisation concernent un réfrigérateur ayant une porte comprenant une telle unité IG.
