Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2771846A1] The invention concerns a touch-sensitive electric switch (10) comprising a contact holder (26, 28, 30) support (12) defining a housing (22) in the bottom of which are arranged at least two fixed electric contacts (26) and which receives a triggering element (36) with generally convex shape and elastically deformable, from a stable inoperative state along a direction (V) substantially perpendicular to the housing (22) bottom (25), for providing an electrical connection between the two fixed contacts (26). The invention is characterised in that it comprises an intermediate contact plate (44) made of a conductive material which is inserted between the triggering element (36) and the housing bottom (25, 34) and which includes at least two switch blades (50) which are elastically deformable, from an inoperative stable position, by the action of the triggering element (36) central part (42) so as to be urged each (50, 52) into contact with an associated fixed contact (26, 28) associated opposite the housing (22) bottom (25) for mutually connecting the fixed contacts electrically.
