Abstract (en)

The switch unit comprises a fixed longitudinal contact area (50) within which is mounted a mobile switching unit (54). The contact and non-contact areas are separated by a slot (84). The switching unit is mobile between the on and off positions and moves in a direction that is parallel to the slot units.

Abstract (fr)

Un interrupteur 40 comporte un organe de contact fixe 50 longiligne et un organe de contact mobile 54 se déplaçant entre une position ouverte et une position fermée. La zone de contact 82 de l'organe de contact 50 est séparée de la zone de raccordement électrique 80 par une fente 84 qui s'ouvre du côté où se trouve l'organe de contact mobile 54 en position ouverte. La profondeur de la fente 84 est suffisante pour que, lors de l'ouverture, les lignes de courant traversant l'organe de contact soient incurvées et se retrouvent approximativement parallèles au flanc 85 de la fente. Cette disposition évite que le pied de l'arc électrique ne se dirige vers l'extrémité libre de l'organe de contact 50, éloignée de la chambre de coupure 90. <IMAGE>
