Abstract (en)

The method involves detecting unauthorised copying of a device, esp. an electric switch or similar. Printing is applied to the external surface or the internal surface of the housing of the device that contains pigments that can only be detected with special equipment, techniques and arrangements, e.g. by infrared investigation or similar.

Abstract (de)

Es wird ein Verfahren zum Nachweis eines unberechtigten Nachbaues insbesondere eines elektrischen Schaltgerätes oder dgl. beschrieben, bei dem auf die Außen- oder Innenfläche des Gehäuses des Schaltgerätes oder dgl. ein Farbaufdruck aufgebracht wird, der nur mit besonderen Verfahren, beispielsweise Infrarotuntersuchung und dgl. zu detektierende Pigmente enthält.
