Title
(EN) LENS HEATER ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE CHAUFFAGE DE LENTILLE
Abstract
(EN) In general, one aspect of the subject matter described in this specification can be embodied in an anti-fogging apparatus for a camera assembly. The anti-fogging apparatus includes a camera affixed to a substrate, and a thermally conductive plate, the thermally conductive plate positioned in front of the substrate and defining a first aperture aligned with a lens of the camera. The anti-fogging apparatus includes a transparent plate positioned in front of the thermally conductive plate such that the transparent plate covers said first aperture. The anti-fogging apparatus includes an insulating element positioned in front of the transparent plate and defining a second aperture aligned with the first aperture. The anti-fogging apparatus includes a heating element affixed to the thermally conductive plate. The anti-fogging apparatus includes a case enclosing the camera, the thermally conductive plate, the transparent plate, the insulating element, and the heating element.
(FR) De façon générale, un aspect de la présente invention concerne un appareil antibuée pour un ensemble caméra. L'appareil antibuée comprend une caméra fixée à un substrat ainsi qu'une plaque thermoconductrice, la plaque thermoconductrice étant positionnée devant le substrat et définissant une première ouverture alignée avec une lentille de la caméra. L'appareil antibuée comprend une plaque transparente positionnée devant la plaque thermoconductrice de telle sorte que la plaque transparente recouvre ladite première ouverture. L'appareil antibuée comprend un élément isolant positionné devant la plaque transparente et définissant une seconde ouverture alignée avec la première ouverture. L'appareil antibuée comprend un élément chauffant fixé à la plaque thermoconductrice. L'appareil antibuée comprend un boîtier renfermant la caméra, la plaque thermoconductrice, la plaque transparente, l'élément isolant et l'élément chauffant.
