Abstract (en)

[origin: US6345848B1] The locking movement and/or the unlocking movement of a bimetallic drive of an electrothermally-controlled locking apparatus, for example for household-device doors, is or are driven by a separate bimetal member (10, 11) over only a first segment of its movement path. In the process, energy is supplied to the energy store (28) of a tipping over-center device until a dead-center position is attained, the energy being released as a moving drive for the remaining segment of the movement path when the dead-center position is exceeded, thereby cutting off the bimetal drive and stabilizing the locking member (2) in its end position.

Abstract (de)

Die Verriegelungsbewegung und/oder Entriegelungsbewegung eines bimetallischen Antriebes einer elektrothermisch gesteuerten Verriegelungsvorrichtung beispielsweise für Hausgerätetüren wird durch jeweils ein gesondertes Bimetall (10,11) nur über einen ersten Teil ihrer Bewegungsstrecke angetrieben. Dabei wird dem Energiespeicher (28) eines Kippsprungwerkes bis zur Erreichung einer Totlage Energie zugeführt, die durch Überschreitung der Totlage als Bewegungsantrieb für den restlichen Teil der Bewegungsstrecke freigesetzt wird, den Bimetallantrieb abschaltet und das Verriegelungsglied (2) stabil in seiner Endstellung hält. <IMAGE> <IMAGE>
