In addition, power consumption is reduced as compared with the case of using an electrical light source.

以下、本発明を実施するための最良の形態について、図面を参照しながら説明する。   The best mode for carrying out the present invention will be described below with reference to the drawings.

本実施形態は、図2に示すように、照明負荷Zへの給電をオンオフするスイッチ本体2と、スイッチ本体2から離れた位置に配置されて矢印A1で示すようにスイッチ本体2に制御のためのワイヤレス信号を送信するリモコン装置1とを備える。   In the present embodiment, as shown in FIG. 2, the switch body 2 for turning on / off the power supply to the illumination load Z and the switch body 2 arranged at a position away from the switch body 2 and indicated by an arrow A1 are for control. Remote control device 1 for transmitting a wireless signal of

リモコン装置1は、図3に示すように、例えば押釦スイッチからなり使用者による操作入力を受け付ける操作部11と、例えば赤外発光ダイオードを有して赤外光を媒体としたワイヤレス信号を送信する送信部12と、操作部11に操作入力が受け付けられたときに送信部12を制御して操作部11に受け付けられた操作入力に応じたワイヤレス信号を送信させる制御部13と、例えば100Vの商用電源ACを整流・平滑及び降圧することにより送信部12及び制御部13の電源を生成する電源部14とを備える。本実施形態では、電源部14が商用電源ACから電源を生成することにより、乾電池を用いる場合と違って乾電池の交換が不要となっている。   As shown in FIG. 3, the remote control device 1 includes, for example, an operation unit 11 that includes a push button switch and receives an operation input by a user, and transmits a wireless signal having an infrared light emitting diode and using infrared light as a medium. A transmission unit 12, a control unit 13 that controls the transmission unit 12 to transmit a wireless signal corresponding to the operation input received by the operation unit 11 when an operation input is received by the operation unit 11, and a commercial unit of, for example, 100V The power supply unit 14 includes a power supply unit 14 that generates power for the transmission unit 12 and the control unit 13 by rectifying, smoothing, and stepping down the power supply AC. In the present embodiment, since the power supply unit 14 generates power from the commercial power supply AC, it is not necessary to replace the dry battery as in the case of using a dry battery.

また、図1に示すように、制御部13を収納するとともに操作部11と送信部12と電源部14とをそれぞれ保持したハウジング10を有する。ハウジング10は略直方体形状であって、背面からは電源部14が有してコンセント(図示せず)に接続される一対の栓刃14aが突出するとともに、前面には、送信部12が放射する赤外光を通過させる窓部12aと、操作部11が有して操作力を受けるハンドル11aとが上下に並べて設けられている。ハンドル11aには、蓄光性を有する材料で構成された表示部11bが設けられており、暗所では表示部11bが発光することによりリモコン装置1の発見やハンドル11aの操作が容易となっている。本実施形態では、上記のように表示部11bに蓄光性を有する材料を用いたことにより、発光ダイオードなどの電気的光源を用いる場合に比べて消費電力が低減されている。特に、電源部14において商用電源ACではなく乾電池を用いるように変更する場合、上記のように表示部11bに蓄光性を有する材料を用いた方が乾電池の寿命が延びるから望ましい。   As shown in FIG. 1, the housing 10 accommodates the control unit 13 and holds the operation unit 11, the transmission unit 12, and the power supply unit 14. The housing 10 has a substantially rectangular parallelepiped shape, and a pair of plug blades 14a that the power supply unit 14 has from the back side and is connected to an outlet (not shown) protrudes from the back side, and the transmission unit 12 radiates on the front side. A window portion 12a that allows infrared light to pass therethrough and a handle 11a that the operation portion 11 has and receives an operation force are provided side by side. The handle 11a is provided with a display unit 11b made of a material having a phosphorescent property. In the dark place, the display unit 11b emits light, thereby facilitating the discovery of the remote control device 1 and the operation of the handle 11a. . In the present embodiment, as described above, the use of a material having a phosphorescent property for the display unit 11b reduces the power consumption compared to the case where an electrical light source such as a light emitting diode is used. In particular, when the power supply unit 14 is changed to use a dry battery instead of the commercial power supply AC, it is desirable to use a material having a phosphorescent property for the display unit 11b as described above because the life of the dry battery is extended.

スイッチ本体2は、図4に示すように、使用者による操作入力を受け付ける操作部21と、例えばフォトダイオードを有してリモコン装置1の送信部12が送信するワイヤレス信号を受信する受信部22と、商用電源ACから照明負荷Zへの給電路に挿入されて照明負荷Zへの給電をオンオフするスイッチ部25と、操作部21に操作入力が受け付けられたときに操作部21に受け付けられた操作入力に応じてスイッチ部25を制御するとともに受信部22にリモコン装置1からのワイヤレス信号が受信されたときに受信部22に受信されたワイヤレス信号に応じてスイッチ部25を制御する制御部23と、制御部23の電源を生成する電源部24とを有する。また、スイッチ本体2は、スイッチ部25と制御部24とをそれぞれ収納するとともに操作部21と受信部22と電源部24とをそれぞれ保持して壁面等の施工面に埋込配設されるハウジング20を有する。ハウジング20の前面には、操作部21が有して操作力を受けるハンドル21aと、受信部22にワイヤレス信号を入射させる窓部22aとが設けられている。   As shown in FIG. 4, the switch body 2 includes an operation unit 21 that receives an operation input by a user, and a reception unit 22 that has a photodiode and receives a wireless signal transmitted from the transmission unit 12 of the remote control device 1. The switch unit 25 inserted into the power supply path from the commercial power supply AC to the lighting load Z and turning on / off the power supply to the lighting load Z, and the operation accepted by the operation unit 21 when the operation input is accepted by the operation unit 21 A control unit 23 that controls the switch unit 25 according to the input and controls the switch unit 25 according to the wireless signal received by the reception unit 22 when the reception unit 22 receives the wireless signal from the remote control device 1; And a power supply unit 24 for generating a power supply for the control unit 23. The switch body 2 houses a switch unit 25 and a control unit 24, and holds a control unit 21, a receiving unit 22, and a power supply unit 24, and is embedded in a construction surface such as a wall surface. 20 On the front surface of the housing 20, there are provided a handle 21 a that the operating unit 21 has and receives an operating force, and a window 22 a that allows a wireless signal to enter the receiving unit 22.

本実施形態の動作を説明する。リモコン装置1やスイッチ本体2のそれぞれにおいて、制御部13,23は、操作部11,21が継続して操作力を受けている時間を計時しており、操作部11,21への操作力が解除されたとき、上記計時された時間が所定の操作閾値を上回っているか否かに応じて異なる動作をする。操作閾値は、使用者が意図的に操作力を維持しているといえる程度に長い時間であり、例えば2秒とする。以下、操作部11,21への操作力の継続時間が操作閾値以下である場合を「スイッチ短押し」と呼び、操作部11,21への操作力の継続時間が操作閾値を上回っている場合を「スイッチ長押し」と呼ぶ。リモコン装置1の制御部13は、スイッチ短押しの場合とスイッチ長押しの場合とで異なるワイヤレス信号を送信部12から送信させる。   The operation of this embodiment will be described. In each of the remote control device 1 and the switch body 2, the control units 13 and 23 measure the time during which the operation units 11 and 21 are continuously receiving the operation force, and the operation force to the operation units 11 and 21 is reduced. When released, the operation is different depending on whether or not the measured time exceeds a predetermined operation threshold. The operation threshold is a time that is long enough to say that the user intentionally maintains the operation force, for example, 2 seconds. Hereinafter, the case where the duration of the operation force to the operation units 11 and 21 is less than or equal to the operation threshold is referred to as “switch short press”, and the duration of the operation force to the operation units 11 and 21 exceeds the operation threshold. Is referred to as “switch long press”. The control unit 13 of the remote control device 1 causes the transmission unit 12 to transmit different wireless signals depending on whether the switch is pressed shortly or when the switch is pressed long.

スイッチ本体2の制御部23は、図5に示すように、スイッチ部25がオフされていて照明負荷Zが消灯している間にリモコン装置1とスイッチ本体2とのいずれかでスイッチ短押しがなされたときに、所定の遅れ時間の間だけスイッチ部25をオンして照明負荷Zを点灯させ遅れ時間の経過時にスイッチ部25をオフして照明負荷Zを消灯させる遅れ動作を行う。また、スイッチ本体2の制御部23は、遅れ動作による点灯中は、リモコン装置1とスイッチ本体2とのいずれかでスイッチ短押しがなされると、遅れ時間の経過前であってもスイッチ部25をオフして照明負荷Zを消灯させる。さらに、スイッチ本体2の制御部23は、遅れ動作による点灯中や消灯中にリモコン装置1とスイッチ本体2とのいずれかでスイッチ長押しがなされると、スイッチ部25を継続してオン状態とし照明負荷Zを連続点灯させる。また、スイッチ本体2の制御部23は、照明負荷Zの連続点灯中は、リモコン装置1とスイッチ本体2とのいずれかでスイッチ短押し又はスイッチ長押しがなされる(つまり、何らかのスイッチ操作がされる)と、スイッチ部25をオフして照明負荷Zを消灯する。   As shown in FIG. 5, the control unit 23 of the switch main body 2 performs a short press of the switch in either the remote control device 1 or the switch main body 2 while the switch unit 25 is turned off and the illumination load Z is turned off. When this is done, a delay operation is performed in which the switch unit 25 is turned on for a predetermined delay time to turn on the illumination load Z and the switch unit 25 is turned off and the illumination load Z is turned off when the delay time elapses. In addition, when the control unit 23 of the switch body 2 is lit by the delay operation, if the switch is pressed for a short time in either the remote control device 1 or the switch body 2, the switch unit 25 even before the delay time has elapsed. To turn off the illumination load Z. Furthermore, the control unit 23 of the switch body 2 continues to turn on the switch unit 25 when the switch is pressed for a long time in either the remote control device 1 or the switch body 2 during lighting or extinguishing due to the delayed operation. The lighting load Z is continuously turned on. Further, the control unit 23 of the switch body 2 is pressed shortly or longly by either the remote control device 1 or the switch body 2 while the lighting load Z is continuously lit (that is, any switch operation is performed). ), The switch unit 25 is turned off to turn off the illumination load Z.

なお、リモコン装置1の電源部14は、2次電池(図示せず)と、栓刃14aがコンセントに接続されているときに商用電源ACを用いて2次電池を充電する充電回路(図示せず)と、2次電池を電源として送信部12や制御部13の電源を生成する電源回路(図示せず)とを備えるものであってもよい。この構成を採用すれば、リモコン装置1をコンセントから取り外して使用可能となる。   The power supply unit 14 of the remote control device 1 includes a secondary battery (not shown) and a charging circuit (not shown) that charges the secondary battery using the commercial power supply AC when the plug blade 14a is connected to an outlet. And a power supply circuit (not shown) that generates power for the transmitter 12 and the controller 13 using the secondary battery as a power source. If this configuration is adopted, the remote controller 1 can be removed from the outlet and used.

また、図6に示すように、リモコン装置1のハウジング10を卓上に設置可能な形状としてもよい。図6の例においては、ハウジング10は、ハンドル11aと窓部12aとともに全体として平面側を下向きとして卓上に載置される半球形状となっており、下面には例えば合成ゴムからなる滑り止め用の脚部10aが設けられている。また、ハンドル11aは上向きに保持され、下向きの押力によって操作される。さらに、窓部12aは上方から見てハンドル11aを囲む環形状となっており、ハウジング10が水平な面上に載置された状態では、送信部12は、上方から見て全周に、水平方向を含む立体角でワイヤレス信号を送信する。図6の例においては電源部14はハウジング10の下部に設けられた電池収納部(図示せず)に収納された乾電池(図示せず)を電源としており、栓刃14aは設けられていないが、栓刃14aを有して商用電源ACのコンセントに接続されるプラグ(図示せず)と、プラグと電源部14とを接続するコード(図示せず)とを設け、商用電源ACを使用する構成としてもよい。   Moreover, as shown in FIG. 6, it is good also as a shape which can install the housing 10 of the remote control apparatus 1 on a desktop. In the example of FIG. 6, the housing 10 has a hemispherical shape that is placed on a table with the handle 11a and the window portion 12a as a whole with the plane side facing downward, and the lower surface is made of, for example, a synthetic rubber made of synthetic rubber. Legs 10a are provided. The handle 11a is held upward and is operated by a downward pressing force. Further, the window portion 12a has an annular shape surrounding the handle 11a when viewed from above, and in a state where the housing 10 is placed on a horizontal surface, the transmitting portion 12 is horizontally disposed around the entire periphery when viewed from above. A wireless signal is transmitted with a solid angle including direction. In the example of FIG. 6, the power supply unit 14 uses a dry battery (not shown) housed in a battery housing part (not shown) provided in the lower part of the housing 10 as a power source, but the plug blade 14 a is not provided. A plug (not shown) having a plug blade 14a and connected to an outlet of a commercial power supply AC and a cord (not shown) connecting the plug and the power supply unit 14 are provided to use the commercial power supply AC. It is good also as a structure.
