Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft einen Mechanismus zur freien Wahl der Tastfunktion von Schaltern. Zur Realisierung dieser freien Auswahl der Tasterfunktion weist die Hilfswippe seitliche Zapfen auf, die eine Feder aufnehmen, welche sich über den gesamten Sockelbereich erstreckt und unter deren Zuhilfenahme die jeweilige Tastfunktion durch Fixieren eines der Federschenkel in einem vom Sockelelement senkrecht aufragenden Auswahlelement realisiert wird. Der erfindungsgemäße Mechanismus ist für die freie Auswahl von Tasterfunktionen bei Schalter mit einer Wippe als auch bei Schaltern mit zwei Wippen geeignet und ermöglicht die Realisierung von beiden Funktionen, also Öffnen und Schließen, auf einem Taster mit geteilter Wippe. <IMAGE>
