The present invention relates to a device for fitting fluorescent lamps, where the device is intended to replace the previously used fluorescent lamps.

The level of technology

In applying the fluorescent lamps is the principle by which the gas mixture, such as argon and mercury vapor emits light that meets the requirements of the radiation intensity, when passing through the gas of the electric current. Due to the fact that this light is essentially composed of ultraviolet radiation, the fluorescent lamp inside covered with a layer of fluorescent substance, which reacts to ultraviolet radiation. Fluorescent lamps have a much better radiation efficiency than ordinary electric incandescent lamp, in addition, their lifetime longer than for these bulbs, but, ultimately, they must be replaced. This may be due to the large amount of work, for example, in public places, where a large number of fluorescent lamps.

In applications where fluorescent lamps are used only for illumination of signs, such as a pointer that contains the text "Emergency exit", quick replacement is needed to avoid adverse impact on the security. In addition, t is such valves are operated around the clock, that necessitates relatively frequent replace fluorescent lamps.

Fluorescent lamp used in these buildings typically consumes approximately 13 W, which takes into account the duration of life also involves significant energy consumption in cases where a large number of fluorescent lamps in large complexes institutions.

Description of design options

As shown in figures 1 and 2, the armature, which is here referred to, is a casing in the form of a box 1 of sheet metal or other suitable material, the front side 1.1 which is designed to install a transparent front element, which, however, is not shown in the figures. On the back wall 1.2 of the casing, are two curved support 1.3 sheet metal having a certain horizontal distance between them. In the lower part of the casing 1 is the inductor 2, the so-called cap, which is connected to the phase of the electric wire. Each of the supports 1.3 carries two contact holder 2.1, 2.2, R is spallogenic one above the other and designed in pairs to accommodate the fluorescent lamp 3. Such a lamp is shown installed in the lower pair of pin holders 2.1, 2.2. The upper left pin holder 2.1 is connected to the phase conductor of the inductor 2, while the upper right of the contact holder 2.2 is connected to the ground wire.

In the upper pair of pin holders 2.1, 2.2 has a light-emitting diode terminal 4 in accordance with the present invention, which is a replacement of fluorescent lamp, usually set there. In addition, in the upper left of the contact holder 2.1 is usually the starter with glow discharge lamp with a bimetallic plate 5 to turn on the fluorescent lamp. Here mentioned the starter with glow discharge lamp with a bimetallic plate is removed since there is no necessity in it, and is shown by shading in figure 2. Light-emitting diode terminal 4 includes an electric actuator element 4.1, which is connected to the phase wire coming from the coil 2 through the left contact holder 2.1, furthermore, the said gathering element 4.1 is connected to the neutral wire in the contact holder 2.2 via wire 4.2 connecting consistently located three light-emitting diode 4.3. The length of the light-emitting diode of the rod 4, and the number of light-emitting diodes 4.3 may vary depending on the length of the source l is minascentro lamp and the desired light intensity. Light-emitting diodes 4.3 can be performed with reflectors with vertical or horizontal adjustment. Light-emitting diodes of this type can significantly reduce energy consumption compared to fluorescent lamps, and thus, power consumption can be reduced by approximately 13 watts to approximately 3 watts.

Fluorescent lamp 3 shown in figure 1, is located in the lower pair of pin holders 2.1, 2.2. and is intended to be included in case of mains power, through supply of electric current from the battery 6, which is part of the starter. This fluorescent lamp can also be replaced by light-emitting diode structure in accordance with the invention, which can also be performed with power from a battery. Usually the life-mentioned fluorescent lamps is very short, and they often need to be replaced. However, the lifespan in the battery mode can be significantly increased by replacing the light-emitting diode terminals in accordance with the invention.

When replacing the used fluorescent lamps light-emitting diode element used starter from the glow discharge lamp with a bimetallic plate off, Altern is effective it can be removed from the place of connection, used the connection in the power circuit between the phase side and the neutral side of the fluorescent lamp will be opened. Thus, there is no need for any other outages or switches.
