Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0727173A1] The handgrip (1) is assembled from wo half-shells (3) held together and secured to the hose (2) by a bayonet closure ring (5). The half-shells form a surround (6) for a one-piece tubular air duct (7) and a handle (8) with a hole (9) for the operator's fingers. A rotary electrical coupling is formed by sliding contacts (12) in one half-shell co-operating with slip-rings (10) on a bushing (11). Electric conductor links (17) and manually operated switches (14) are mounted at the transition between the handle and a projecting coupling section (15) of the air duct.
