Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0795668A1] A central control unit (9) is wired to the actuators (1-4) on the four doors which are equipped with signalling switches (5a-5e,6c-6e,7a-7e,8c-8e) reproducing the status of the positioning elements. The front doors (VL,VR) have additional switches (5a,5b;7a,7b) providing "System Open" and "System Close" signals respectively. The "Open" signals (I1a,I9a) are encoded by means of door-specific ohmic resistances (R1,R2;R3,R4) in the signal lines to the central control unit. This sends control signals (S1-S8) pairwise to the motors (M1-M4) of the respective door locks.
