  In the remote control device for LED lighting apparatus according to the present invention, a lighting apparatus including a plurality of LEDs, for example, a touchpad including an omnidirectional pressure sensor for remotely controlling the color tone of a light bulb, and a periphery applied to the touchpad. And means for detecting the angular movement of the pressure of the portion to change the color tone of the luminaire. In addition, in order to control the brightness of the luminaire, the angular movement of the pressure applied to the peripheral portion applied to the touch pad is detected. When there is no movement, the brightness of the luminaire is determined according to the position on the touch pad where the pressure is applied. There is further provided means for controlling.

  First, the structure and function of the omnidirectional pressure sensor used in the remote control device for LED lighting apparatus of the present invention will be described. Referring to FIG. 1, an omnidirectional pressure sensor is shown. The omnidirectional pressure sensor 10 (hereinafter sometimes simply referred to as a sensor) has a thin coin shape. As shown in the cross-sectional view of FIG. 1, the substrate 12, the silicon rubber 14, the conductive rubber 16, and the copper electrode 18 are used. It is configured. In FIG. 1, the sensor obtains 360-degree direction data and an analog current output corresponding to the pressure intensity by applying pressure from the top of the silicon rubber 14. The current output is converted into digital data by a dedicated IC (not shown). The sensor 10 has a diameter of about 10 mm and a thickness of about 1.1 mm, and an air layer of about 0.2 mm is interposed between the conductive rubber 16 and the copper electrode 18. When pressure is applied from the upper part of the sensor 10, the air layer is deformed. At this time, the change in electrostatic capacitance using the conductive rubber 16 and the copper electrode 18 as both electrodes of the capacitor is captured two-dimensionally.

  The change in capacitance is output as a change in current and converted into a digital voltage output by a dedicated IC. As a result, an output as shown in FIG. 2 is obtained. The characteristic of such an omnidirectional pressure sensor is that a pressure from about 0.3 N can be detected. That is, a highly sensitive sensor can be realized. Utilizing such characteristics, omnidirectional pressure sensors have been used in input devices for mobile phones, digital cameras, and car navigation systems.

  There are various methods for transmitting force from the key top to the omnidirectional pressure sensor. In this embodiment, a force transmitting elastic spacer (hereinafter also simply referred to as a spacer) is used. The present invention is not limited to this transmission method. That is, a force transmission elastic spacer 30 is provided between the sensor 10 and the key top 20 to transmit the force applied to the key top to the sensor 10. The spacer 30 is made of silicon rubber, and silicon rubber having a hardness of about 60 degrees to 40 degrees is used. The key top 20 is simply placed on the spacer 30 or is integrated with the spacer 30 with an adhesive or adhesive tape.

The spacer 30 is deformed in the direction of the applied force when the force from the key top is applied, and the circular thick central portion 30a that hardly deforms when the force from the key top is applied, and extending outward from the central portion 30a. A ring-shaped extremely thin intermediate portion 30b, a ring-shaped thick support portion 30c that extends further outward from the intermediate portion and hardly deforms when a force from the key top is applied, and a lower surface of the central portion 30a. The ring-shaped projecting portion 30d. Here, the thin portion, that is, the intermediate portion 30b has a thickness of 50 to 200 microns, and the thick portion, that is, the central portion 30a and the support portion 30c may have a thickness of about 150 to 400 microns.

The support portion 30c is disposed on the plate 10a to which the sensor 10 is attached. The intermediate portion 30b flexibly exerts a force upward on the central portion 30a so that the central portion 30a is in contact with the lower surface of the key top 20. Due to this structure, a certain gap can be maintained between the sensor 10 and the key top 20.

  For convenience of explanation, an assembly including the sensor 10, the key top 20, and the spacer 30 will be referred to as a touch pad 40. In the present invention, a touch pad having the function of the omnidirectional pressure sensor is used for a remote control device for an LED lighting apparatus (hereinafter sometimes simply referred to as a remote controller). As shown in the photograph of FIG. 3, the touch pad 40 is stored with the key top 20 exposed in the case 50 of the remote controller. The worker places, for example, a thumb on the edge of the touch pad 40 (lightly touches) and holds the case 50 with another finger. While touching the touch pad 40, the worker moves his / her thumb clockwise or counterclockwise along the edge. The movement of the finger along the edge on the touch pad is grasped as the movement of the angle with respect to the center of the touch pad. In addition, the pressure data for each detection of the angle data is also acquired. As a result, a detection value for creating data to be described later is obtained. The operator moves his / her finger along the edge of the touch pad while looking at the color of the luminaire, and when the desired color is obtained, the pressing pressure is changed to obtain the desired brightness as will be described later. .

  Next, with reference to FIG. 4, the color variable system in the LED illumination of the present invention will be described. For example, R (red), G (green), and B (blue) LEDs are arranged at intervals of 120 degrees inside a light bulb-type (not shown) LED lighting fixture. Change the color controlled by. That is, the LED driver 102 is driven using the angle / color conversion algorithm 100 to control the brightness of the LEDs 104, 106, and 108 of R (red), G (green), and B (blue).

  As shown in FIG. 5, the brightness control is performed by the LED driver 102 PWM-controlling each of the LEDs 104, 106, and 108. For example, (A) is maximum lighting, and (B) is 50%. It becomes brightness.

  FIG. 6 is a flowchart of steps showing creation and transmission of data on the remote control side. In FIG. 6, the position pressed by the finger is detected (X / Y coordinates, 8 bits) (step S10). Next, the pressure of the finger is detected (X / Y data size) (step S12). Thereafter, the X-axis and Y-axis 8-bit data, the ID number, and the header are attached to packetize (step S14), and finally transmitted to the outside by radio (RF) or IR (infrared LED) (step S16).

  FIG. 7 is a flowchart of steps for changing the color and brightness by data processing on the LED illumination side. In FIG. 7, data is received by radio (RF) or IR (infrared LED) (step S20). Next, X-axis and Y-axis numerical values are acquired from the data packet (the absolute values of the numerical values are pressures) (step S22). Next, it is determined whether or not the pressure applied by the touch pad is equal to or greater than the determined magnitude (step S24), and the process proceeds to the next step S26 after waiting for the magnitude to exceed the magnitude. When the pressure applied by the touch pad reaches a predetermined level, the lighting device is turned on, that is, the LED emits light.

  In step S26, an angle is calculated from the X-axis and Y-axis data. In the present invention, whether or not there is an angle movement (change) is used as control determination data, and therefore this angle on the touchpad does not necessarily correspond to the angular position in the light bulb on a one-to-one basis. Next, it is determined whether or not the angle is moving (that is, whether or not the finger is moving on the touch pad is determined by comparing the sequentially input angle data). (Step S28). Next, it is determined whether the rotation is clockwise or counterclockwise from the change in angle (step S30). For example, in the case of clockwise rotation, the colors are changed in the order of red, yellow, green, and blue (step S32) to counterclockwise. In the case of, the color is changed in the order of blue, green, yellow and red (step S34).

  On the other hand, if it is determined in step S28 that the angle has not moved, the process proceeds to step S36, so that the color determined in step S32 or step S34 is determined. If it is determined in step S28 that the angle has not moved, the finger has once left the touch pad or the finger has stopped on the touch pad. In the first embodiment, this corresponds to a case where the finger is once separated from the touch pad.

When the finger presses the touch pad again, the angle on the touch pad where the pressing pressure is generated is detected, and it is determined whether it is around 90 degrees (12 o'clock direction) (step S36). The LED changes in the direction of brightening (step S38). As the pressure increases, the brightness increases, and when the desired brightness is achieved, the brightness is determined when the finger is released from the touchpad. If the pressing pressure is further increased, the color eventually becomes white.

On the other hand, in the case of around 270 degrees (6 o'clock direction) (step S40), the LED changes in the direction of darkening (step S42). As the pressure increases, the darkness increases. When the desired darkness is reached, the darkness is determined when the finger is released from the touch pad. As the pressing pressure is further increased, the color finally becomes black. When it finally becomes black, the luminaire is turned off, that is, the light emission of the LED stops. This extinguishing and the above-mentioned lighting may be performed by providing a dedicated switch.

  In the first embodiment, the selection to make the LED brighter or darker is determined by the position on the touch pad that is once released after the angle is determined (step S28) and then pressed again. After step S28), the light pressure may be increased by increasing the pressing pressure at that angular position without releasing the finger, and the brightness may be decreased by decreasing the pressing pressure.

  FIG. 8 is a photograph showing a picture of the simulation software when operating the remote controller of the present invention. In the lower right of FIG. 8, the hue 60 and the angular position representing the current color on the hue are indicated by a straight line 62. When the finger is moved clockwise or counterclockwise along the edge of the touch pad, the angle of the straight line 62 changes clockwise or counterclockwise following the movement. The position on the hue indicated by the straight line 62 after the change represents the current color.

  When the lighting fixture is a single color LED or fluorescent lamp, the brightness can be changed. For example, brightness can be increased or decreased by moving a finger clockwise or counterclockwise along the edge of the touchpad.
