Thereafter, when the force applied to the actuator of the remote control main body 3 is released, the key is activated to return to the initial position by the restoring force generated by the button of the push button switch SW1 and the rebound spring member 14. Further, the projection 36 also protrudes from the right end of the front surface of the remote control main body 3, which indicates the operating position of the switch. On the other hand, in order to operate the switch by separating the remote control main body 3 from the key touch handle 2, the user can grasp the belt 37 protruding from the right side of the outer casing 30 of the remote control main body 3 and pull the outer casing 30 forward, and the outer casing 30 and the key are easily removed. <S) 14 Ι 2785^π • The handle 2 is separated, whereby the remote operation can be performed remotely by using the outer casing 3 that is opened. μ Now, the circuit of this embodiment will be described with reference to Figs. 4A and 4β. Switch, the main body 1 comprises a circuit as shown in FIG. 4A, the circuit comprising: a terminal, sub-T1 and Τ2 connected to a commercial power source AC via a lamp L such as an incandescent lamp; connected between the terminals T1 and T2 The switching element Q1, such as a three-terminal bidirectional controllable switch, is used to turn on/off the power supply of the supply lamp L; the light receiving element 41 is composed of a photodiode for receiving the wireless signal repaired by the optical signal. For example, the infrared ray, the transient type button switch SW1, and the control circuit unit 40 are configured by the processor to output the control signal a according to the received signal from the light receiving element 41 or the operation signal from the button switch SW1 to control k. Dimming output; driving circuit unit 42 for controlling according to control signal 2=. The conduction angle of the switching element Q1 is changed to change the dimming output of the lamp L; the whole = path 43' is used to connect the input terminal between the terminals D1 and D2 to rectify the power supply voltage of the commercial power supply AC, and The power source 44 is for smoothing the rectified output from the rectifier circuit 43 to control the operating power of the circuit unit 40. In addition, the icon in FIG. 4A indicates a light-emitting diode that is turned on when the lamp L is turned off, which indicates a position or an operating state by changing a / mckering cycle, and SW2 indicates a conversion channel. Switch. The Qiuyi remote control main body 3 includes a circuit as shown in FIG. 4B having an input=fan 51 for detecting an operation input from the switches SW11 to SW15 and a changeover switch SW16 to be described later, and a light emitting diode]1D2 a wireless signal consisting of a light signal consisting of, for example, infrared light; a control circuit unit 15 12785 & 7pin., comprising a microprocessor for responding to an operational input of the input unit 51 to generate a light-emitting diode a driving signal of the LD2; a battery B1 for supplying the operating power to the control circuit unit 50, and a signal transmitting unit 52 configured to have a signal transmitting unit that is connected in series between the two ends of the battery B1 via the resistor R1. The polar body LD2 and the switching element Q2 are used to transmit a wireless signal and control the conduction of the light-emitting diode LD2 by turning on/off the switching element Q2 according to the driving signal. In this circuit system configuration, the switch SW11 outputs a field signal for inverting the light [on/off] according to the operation thereof. Further, the switch SW12 outputs an operation signal for increasing the dimming level in response to the operation thereof, and the switch SW13 outputs an operation signal for reducing the dimming level in response to its woodworking. Switching back, operating the operation signal for recording the dimming level or dimming the current dimming level, and the dimming level, the switch swi5 responds to the operation thereof Output an operation signal for timer operation. Now, the operation of the dimmer switch will be described.

f is rounded or comes from the light-receiving element 41. Unit 5 returns to this day. In response to the push button switch SW1 4, the raw member 15 presses the push button switch swi 1 to always monitor the signal input of the button switch SW1, so the control circuit is pressed to the drive circuit 4 2 16 I2785867_, and the control signal #ua, Thereby switching the light: on/off. Then, the drive 2 responds to the _ operation of the control signal Φ for inverting the on/off of the lamp L, thereby completely pinging the lamp L. For example, when the handle 2 is pressed or the outer casing 3G of the main body 3 is pressed and pressed, the pressing operation should be reversed to reverse the opening/closing of the lamp L. That is, when the lamp L is turned on, the lamp 1 is turned off by the pressing operation, and when the lamps L are turned off, the lamp 1 is turned on by the pressing operation. field

Now, the operation of the dimming switch when the remote control main body 3 is used for remote control is removed in the case where the user removes the remote control main body from the key touch handle 2 in the case of going to bed or watching television. When one of the portions 32aS32e of the remote control main body 3 is pressed, the operation signal of the corresponding switch corresponding to one of the switches SW11 to SW15 is supplied to the circuit unit 50 by the input unit 51. If the operation signal is supplied by inputting the single-force 51-axis control circuit unit = 50, the control circuit unit 5 generates a control signal for transmitting the predetermined wireless signal in response to the operation signal. Then, the signal transmission unit 52 responds to the control signal of the control circuit unit 5 to drive the light-emitting diode LD2' to transmit the (four) signal of the lamp L in the form of a wireless signal consisting of optical signals such as infrared rays. Line signals can be based on a standard format, such as the industry standard for Ass〇dati〇n 〇f Electric H Delete Appliances. When the operation convex portion 32a constituting the ON/OFF operation button is pressed (i.e., the switch SW11 is ON), a control signal for switching the ON/OFF of the lamp L, for example, an ON/OFF signal, is transmitted. Further, when the operation convex portion 32b (ie, the switch SW12^〇N) of the dimming operation button is pressed, the control signal for the dimming level of the 17 l2785 & 5 Pifl lamp L is transmitted, for example, the light dimming signal. . When the operation convex portion 32C of the dimming operation button is set (i.e., the switch 13 is 〇N), a control signal for reducing the dimming level of the lamp L is transmitted, and the gamma light is faint. In addition, when the operation convex portion 32d (i.e., the switch SW14*〇N) constituting the dimming level recording/recovery button is pressed,

= Use ^ δ to record the desired dimming level or change the current dimming level to the recorded control level, such as dimming level recording/recovery signal. When the operation convex portion 32e (i.e., the switch SW15*〇Ν) is pressed, the control signal for performing the timer operation, for example, the timer control signal, and, on the other hand, the control circuit unit 40 of the switch main body 1 are sent. The operation input of the button switch SW1 or the signal input from the light receiving element 41 is always checked, so when the light receiving element 41 receives the control signal, the control circuit unit 40 controls the operation of the drive circuit 42 in response to the received control signal. Illumination output of lamp L. At this time, when the input dimming level control signal is input, the light receiving element 41 receives the dimming level control signal for increasing or decreasing the dimming level, and at this time, the control circuit unit 40 increases or decreases the switch. The conduction angle of element Q2, thereby changing the dimming level of lamp L in the brightening or darkening direction. Thereafter, when the input of the dimming level control signal is stopped, the current dimming level is automatically stored in the flash memory (not shown) that is input to the control circuit unit 40. The dimming level of the auto-storage is stored and managed separately from the dimming level recorded by the user, which will be described later. In addition, when the light receiving element 41 receives the on/off signal, in the case where the lamp L is off, the control circuit unit 40 turns the lamp 1 to the dimming level stored in the fast 18 I2785 & 7_ flash memory, at the lamp L is In the case of opening, B is turned off, thereby repeatedly repeating the lamp; L is on/off of the dimming level. When the fork light element 41 is connected to receive the light level recording/recovery signal for a predetermined duration (for example, 2 seconds), the control circuit is in a built-in flash memory (for example, a storage device). When the current U10 Γ ί is recorded, the third light receiving element 41 picks up the dimming level recording/recovering signal when it is shorter than the predetermined duration, and the control circuit unit 40 changes the current dimming level of the han to the flash memory. The dimming level recorded in the middle, and when the light receiving element 41 receives the timer control signal, the control is as follows: 40 60 light L. ~) After closing, the operation of this embodiment will be described in detail with reference to FIG. > : The user presses the operation convex of the remote control main body 3 at the closing time t1, and strives to be early 2: the light L is turned on to the automatic level control operation before the automatic storage level stored in the built-in flash memory is Self = stored in flash memory. Since the initial y is, the control circuit is single (4) lamp part =: ΐ 'after the user presses the operation of the remote control body 3 at 13: _ i off the main body 1 to send the light dimming signal, _ full class laughs The circuit soap element 40 makes the dimming level of the lamp L from 100% (the end portion; Del gradually decreases. Then, when the user releases the operation convex surface in the M release operation to stop the transmission of the light dimming signal, the control circuit unit 40 - homing, Maintain the current dimming level, and automatically store the current dimming, etc. 19 I2?85&7sPifl, and automatically in the built-in flash memory. Then, when the convex part 32a is prepared, the signal is from the remote; the main body is in the main stomach of the second stomach. 1, thereby causing the control circuit unit 开关 of the switch body 1 to change from the dimming illumination state to the off state. Then, when the switch key red main handle 2 of the switch body 1 is pressed at the closing time t7 to close the push button switch SW1, Control Xianmen ^ hand in the ugly switch W operation of the input and completely hit _ \ early press the day =:, the keyboard touches the handle 2 to open the press, _ time Tiankong: Circuit early 40 responds to the operation of the button switch SW1 And turn off the light l. Subsequently, when the user presses the remote control main body 3 at t9 The convex portion 32a is used to transmit the on/off signal from the remote control main body 3 to the switch main body circuit S S 40 to turn on the light L to the light level A1 stored in the built-in flash memory, wherein the weave level is adjusted in the silk The light waits for your process to be stored in the flash memory. In addition, when the dimming illumination is performed, when the convex portion 32a is pressed, the open signal is again brought from the remote control main plate 3 to the switch main body i' The control circuit unit should change the lamp L from the dimming illumination state to the on/off signal. According to the special 1, in the implementation, by pressing the dimming operation, for example, the ladder convex portion 32b And 32c, the dimming level of the lamp L can be changed away from the main body of the switch. Therefore, since the user can perform the dimming operation without going to the installation position of the main body 在 in the case of going to bed, the convenience of use is improved. Further, when the key of the switch main body i is pressed to move the handle 2, the circuit unit 40 completely turns on or turns off the lamp L.

[Preferred Embodiment 4] The fourth preferred embodiment of the present invention (four) is described with reference to Figs. 8A and 8C. As shown in Fig. 27 1278583⁄4 8A and 8C, The dimmer switch of the embodiment includes a pair of dimming buttons 17a and 17b on the front side of the switch body j, thereby enabling a user to perform a dimming operation at the switch body 1. With respect to this embodiment, the same icon δ has been assigned The same or the same components are given, and since the configuration of this embodiment is similar to that of Embodiments 1 to 3 except for the dimming instructions 17a and 17b, the description thereof will be omitted.

A dimming button 17a for increasing the dimming level and a dimming button 17b for reducing the dimming level are respectively placed at the upper and lower portions of the front side of the switch body. Further, a switch (not shown) is included inside the switch body ,, which is turned on/off in response to the operation of the dimming buttons 17a and 17b. Further, in the areas facing the dimming buttons 7a and Hb, respectively, the keys 23a and 23b are formed, wherein the key touch handle 2 is connected to the front side of the main body. Thus, the dimming buttons 17a and 17b can be pressed by the window 23a and by the user. Further, the two dimming buttons are formed in such a manner that the surfaces of the dimming buttons 17 & and m are lower than the surface of the key engaging member 2 (four) engaging member 23 by approximately lnim. When the Tianyutou Wang 3 is removed from the switch main body, the operation signal of the corresponding switch is supplied to the Ming & circuit as early as 40 by the τ operation of the lamp L at the I7b. Then, the control circuit unit* is changed by changing the conduction angle of the switching element Q1, the second wood, or the reduction level of the lamp L·. Since the user can perform dimming at the main body 1, he/she can remotely operate by turning the (4) off main body 4. Therefore, even if there is no Langyao, the two lights enter. The Zhou Guanggong main body 3 can also perform the dimming operation at the switch main body 28 1278583⁄4^1. In the 5 haibe example, the dimming operation is performed at the switch main body 1 by providing the dimming buttons 17a and 17b in the switch main body 1. However, in the case where there is no dimming button 17a and 17b, when the key is pressed to touch the handle for 2 days, the dimmer switch of the present invention can increase and decrease the lamp L between the upper limit value and the lower limit value. Dimming level. Further, the dimming switch of Embodiment 4 can maintain the dimming level which is the value at the moment when the key is released to move the handle 2.

''As shown in FIG. 9', when the key is pressed at the time t21, the control circuit unit 40 controls the operation of the drive circuit 42, thereby responding to the operation input from the button switch SW1 and completely turning on the lamp 1, Among them, the ratio is ^2, and L is in the off state. And, if the key is continuously pressed for a longer period of time from t21, for example, 1 second): 4 continuously receives the operation input limit i from the button exposure W1: Λ t22 starts the dimming level of the lamp L from the upper t2 / threshold is reduced to the lower limit (for example, 1〇%), time t22 is from the limited dimming level, and the second half of the autumn/τ pre-wide U, for example, 1 second, the lower direction is changed in the opposite direction: At the lower limit, the handle 2 is started to be turned off _/. The alpha fruit hunting is released by the release of the key at time t24. (4) (4) Circuit unit 4〇 thereafter and maintains a similar dimming level. The operation is input to the control circuit 29 Ι 2785 & 7_ in response to the operation of the foot-activated button SW1 in response to the key touching the handle 2: and the continuous operation of the handle 2 is triggered by the key: the operation signal from the button switch SW1 is entered. Then, the control monitors the operation input from the push button switch SW1 at 4 , and does not turn off the lamp early.

If the predetermined time is from the time t25 (five) and the key is pressed to move the handle 2, the control circuit unit 4G is inversely between the upper limit value (100%) and the lower limit value (for example, 1%). The level of the big L secret L, the certain time is from the time when the _ still open ^ pre-study duration has passed. Thereafter, the control circuit unit* holds the dimming level at the moment when the key is released to move the handle 2. Further, if the user touches the handle 2 again by pressing the key again within a predetermined time (for example, i seconds) after he/she releases the key to move the handle 2 (for example, t26 and t27), the control circuit unit 4 changes the previous and previous changes. The dimming level is changed in the same direction, and the control circuit unit 4 can finely adjust the dimming level. [Preferred Embodiment 5] McCaw FIG. 10 describes a fifth preferred embodiment of the present invention. In this embodiment, the actuating member 62 of the lower limit setting switch SW3 is provided on the front surface of the switch main body 1 of the dimmer switch according to Embodiment 1 to set the minimum value of the dimming level. For the embodiment, the same reference numerals are assigned to the same or the same components, and since the configuration of this embodiment is similar to that of the first embodiment except for the lower limit setting switch SW3, the description thereof will be omitted. The lower limit setting switch SW3 is made of two position type slide switches, and the value of the dimming level at the time when the actuating member 62 of the lower limit setting switch SW3 is slid to the right end is stored as the lower limit value of the dimming level. Therefore, the user can slide the I278S8^pifi:== two to the right end and the larger than the lower limit value = the lower limit setting switch sw3 can be used to set the light level

1 Light is controlled by the dimming of the example of the benefit of the example. The dimming level of the place where it is not too high, such as the Karaoke, the cafe, and the old man, is very safe. In this configuration, since the lower limit setting switch SW3 is normally blocked by the key difficult handle 2, the lower limit value is prevented from being accidentally changed. Further, when the dimming level before t is 〇Z (that is, k L is in the off state) and the actuating member 62 of the lower limit setting switch sw3 is slid to the right end, the preset lower limit value can be simply held, and when the lower limit is set When the switch SW3 is slid to the left end, the lower limit of the dimming level is set to 0%, thereby allowing the dimming level to be set to any value between 〇% and 1〇〇%. In addition, the configuration of this embodiment can also be applied to the other embodiments described above. [Preferred Embodiment 6] A sixth embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to Figs. 11, 12A, and 12B. The dimmer switch of the present invention further includes the individual setting devices 70 in the above-described Embodiments 1 to 5, and the operation of the switch body 1 can be set by setting the setting of the wireless signal from the individual setting device 70. With regard to this embodiment, the same reference numerals are assigned to similar or identical components, and the configuration and operation of this embodiment are the same as those of Embodiment 1 except that the setting operation of the switch body 1 by the device 7 is individually set. 5 is similar, so its description will be omitted. The separate setting device 70 has a circuit as shown in Fig. 12B. The circuit includes: a transmitting switch 72; an input unit 73 for monitoring inputs of the setting switches SW21 to SW24 for various settings; a light emitting diode LD3 for transmitting a wireless signal composed of optical signals such as infrared rays; and a control circuit unit 71, comprising a microprocessor for generating a driving signal according to setting information input through the input unit; a battery B2 for supplying power to operate the control circuit unit 71, and the like, and a signal transmitting unit 74 having the switching element Q3, the switching element Q3 is connected in parallel with the battery B2 via a series circuit of the resistor R2 and the light-emitting diode LD3, thereby controlling the light-emitting diode by turning on/off the switching element Q3 in response to the driving signal and in response to the opening/closing of the switching element Q3. The conductivity of the body LD3 thus sends a wireless signal. In the circuit system configuration, the input unit 73 monitors input signals from the setting switches SW21, SW22, SW23, and SW24, and the setting switch SW21 is used to set the maximum value of the dimming level (initial value is 100%), and the setting switch SW22 is used. In setting the minimum value of the dimming level (the initial value is 1%), the setting switch SW23 is used to set the gradation time (the initial value is 3 seconds) to any one of leap seconds, 3 seconds, 5 seconds, and 1 sec. The setting switch SW24 is used to set the response in response to the operation of the switch body 1, whether the lamp L is fully open or turned on with reduced brightness. Figure 11 is an external perspective view of the individual setting device 70, wherein the circuit described above with reference to = 12B is mounted to a circuit board (not shown) placed in a hand-sized size formed into a flat rectangular parallelepiped shape. The outer casing 75 is adjacent. Further, the light-transmitting portion 6' is disposed at one end of the outer casing 75 in the vertical direction so that the light-transmitting portion can transmit about infrared rays. LED LD3 is set at 32 Ι 2785^^ρίπ

_ Light portion 76 is internal. And, in the main plane of the casing 75, the operation buttons of each of the setting switches SW2i to SWM^W, and the transmission switch 72 are sequentially arranged in the vertical direction from the vertical direction (the transmission is included in the main body 1 for storing operating conditions) PR〇M (Electrically Erasable Read Only Memory) 45. When the light receiving element 41 receives the setting signal transmitted from the individual setting device 7, the control circuit unit 40 stores the received setting signal in the eepR〇m 45. Thereafter, the control circuit unit 40 performs a switching operation corresponding to the setting information stored in the EEPROM 45. Although the EEPROM is used as a storage device, the storage device is not limited to the EEPROM; this embodiment can adopt any non-easily The memory is used as a storage device. In order to perform the setting of the operation by the separate setting device 70, first, the user sets the maximum value of the dimming level (MAXIMUM DIMMING LEVEL) and the minimum value by operating the sliding handles 73a to 73d of the setting switches SW21 to SW24. (MINIMUM DIMMING LEVEL), fade time (FADING TIME), and those operations that respond to the opening operation of the switch body 1 (fully open or open with reduced brightness) Thereafter, when the send button (TRANSMISSION BUTTON) 72a is pressed, the control circuit unit 71 reads the setting information of each of the setting switches SW21 to SW24 by the input unit 73, generates a setting signal corresponding to the setting information, and then sends a signal to the signal. The transmitting unit 74 outputs these setting signals. The signal transmitting unit 74 turns the switching element Q3 on and off in response to the input setting signal, thereby turning on and off the light emitting diode LD3 from 33.

The 12785&7P LED LD3 is sent as the setting signal in the form of the received two-wire signal in the switch body 1. At this time, the control signal 41 receives the information sent from the individual setting device 70, and then sets the setting.

Further, since this is sufficient for each of the plurality of switch bodies 1 of the same type to be set, he/she does not have to prepare the switch body to be equipped with the lock-off area. (4) Therefore, it is advantageous to reduce costs, such as design costs. Further, the separate setting device 70 is used to enable the user to set a value related to the dimming control so that the switch main body 1 operates in accordance with the user's request. Moreover, the use of the separate setting device enables the user to set the value of the dimming control without approaching the position of the switch body, so that the dimmer switch can be easily used. In the normal month, since the user does not need to know the complicated setting project described above, the manufacturer needs to set the setting information of the switch body 1.
