Abstract (en)

The rotary switch has rupture points (5) arranged on the rotary knob (2) or on the knob base (3). In the event of a large force acting on the rotary switch, the rupture points are crushed and the knob is displaced to the knob base (3). The rupture points may be formed from spring elements or from strips with break points.

Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft einen Drehschalter. Drehschalter bzw. Drehsteller finden häufig in der Kraftfahrzeugtechnik ihren Einsatz. Diese entsprechen jedoch nicht den sogenannten Kopfaufschlagkriterien. Hiergegen sieht die vorliegende Lösung nun vor, im Drehschalter (1) Bruchstellen (5, 6) zu integrieren, die bei einem erhöhten Kraftdruck das Eintauchen eines Drehknopfoberteils (2) des Drehstellers (1) in eine Frontblende (4) des Kraft- und Nutzfahrzeuges ermöglichen. Diese Bruchstellen (5, 6) können als nachgebende Rippen (6) mit einer Sollbruchstelle (6.1) oder als Federelemente (5) gestaltet sein. <IMAGE>
